Artist/Writer Brian Pulido is a longstanding pioneer of independent horror comics. Known for creating such characters as Evil Ernie, Purgatori and Lady Death, he has always had an uncompromising vision and rock and roll sensibility. Recently his Lady Death Kickstarters have been setting records and breaking the comic distribution model. He shares the story of losing his Chaos Comics characters to lawsuits and how he overcame that adversity to achieve his current success. Pulido is still a groundbreaker in variant covers, using materials like Swarovski crystals and leather, we predict the Gwar comic a week before it was announced, and discuss his love of punk and metal with an analysis of what makes a good "Cookie Monster singer".

He and Wendi have a great time this week discussing the outsider nature of scary movies, their deep love of final girls, the year in horror films, asses, and the connections between scream queens and comics, like Brinke and Dave Stevens & Julie Strain and Kevin Eastman, and share memories of Herschell Gordon Lewis. So join two people completely unattracted to women as they giggle over their fondness for titties!

Artist/writer Ming Doyle joins this episode to discuss her recent work, including last year's phenomenal woman centric mafia story, DC/Vertigo's "The Kitchen". She divulges the nature of reverent nostalgia vs. kitsch, how American comic artists work vs. manga studios, her time co-writing "Constantine: The Hellblazer" with James Tynion IV and making bisexuality more than his "cool trick", along with fan attachment to THAT coat. Currently she is pencilling "Girl Over Paris" with writer Kate Leth, based on the popular YA novels by Gwenda Bond, and has a story in "Love is Love", the comic anthology benefitting families of the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando.
