Double Page Spread ep 154- Vivek Tiwary

Vivek Tiwary is the writer/historian behind the Eisner award winning graphic novel "The Fifth Beatle" and has so much exciting news! He's recently gotten a tv deal to turn the story of Brian Epstein into a tv show and hopes to create more seasons about other famous managers. He and Wendi discuss the fascinating network of behind the scenes people who supported the Beatles, like the impact of George Harrison's sister in America. We also get to hear about Vivek's unique upbringing in NY and the equal influence of punk rock and Broadway that led him to helping produce Green Day's "American Idiot". He is also currently publishing his online illustrated young adult novel "Asha Ascending", with artist Sara Richard, which is open to input and changes with audience feedback. Hear all that as well as Tony award and Hamilton discussions, current music related tv shows, the Musicians on Call non-profit, Valiant comics and so much more!

This week brings the debut of the new Action Lab Comics all ages book, "Ghoul Scouts". Writer Steve Bryant (Athena Voltaire) and artist Mark Stegbauer join Wendi to discuss their new sojourn into the supernatural, a story of kids who are busier fighting monsters than earning merit badges, perfect for fans of adventures like "Monster Squad" or "Lumberjanes". We talk about the perfect weapons for pre-teens, establishing voice for your characters, and the genius of "Real Genius".

This week Wendi is joined by artist Brent Schoonover. She laments the loss of "Howling Commandos of SHIELD" (only 6 issues??), a book that combined the best Marvel monsters of every era. He also shares about his work on "Ant Man", "Back to the Future", and what it's like to be known for a retro penciling style. Brent tells the story of being hired as a sketch artist at a Paisley Park party for Morris Day and the Time where no cameras were allowed. (This episode was recorded the week before Prince passed). He also answers the very important question- "Dirty Dozen or Great Escape"?
