Double Page Spread

Karl Slominski is a real go getter- an ambitious artist who works in bright, psychedelic angles and colors, he has no hesitation in telling you what he wants and hopes to achieve. His art style is a refreshing mix of splashy paint and inky linework, best seen in the graphic novel, "Teeter Topple" which he also wrote- a twisty mental tale of a young man's breakdown. He is starting a new imprint called "New Noise" which will feature work from him, and his partner, screenwriter Jenna Lyn Wright. We talk about the balance of their relationship, their "meet cute", his new books "Alternauts" and "Cult of Ikarus", and things you can do with the Fantastic Four.

Artist Zach Lehner is the special guest this week as he celebrates the release of vol. 2 of "Junior Braves of the Apocalypse" from One Press, written by Greg Smith and Michael Tanner. Creating a horror comic for young adults is a delicate balance of pushing the edge of fear and violence. He discusses the inevitable "Walking Dead" comparisons and how it differs from "Lord of the Flies" or any other "teens in danger" tropes, and reaching out to libraries. 

Then a quick chat with Luke Foster, who draws a funny ghost cartoon.

Everything about artist/writer Michel Fiffe is crafted from a place of reverence, sincerity and respect. His long running indie comic, Copra, is a love letter to the 80s run of "Suicide Squad" and his work with Image Comics reimagining Rob Liefeld's "Bloodstrike" is not tongue in cheek in the slightest. Fiffe wears his influences well but shapes them through his unique independent lens. He and Wendi discuss these as well as the underrated impact of Kim Yale on women in comics, and a fascinating discussion of his correspondence with Steve Ditko and differentiating hating "fandom" but loving your fans.

audio note: there is an echo on Wendi's dialogue, hopefully you can bear through it for this great conversation.

In this corner, we have the spectacular J. Gonzo, artist and writer of "La Mano Del Destino", a comic set in a fictional 1960's Mexico about a supernatural luchador bent on revenge. He discusses all the thought and detail presented in the color and printing of this retro story, along with the history of Mexican wrestling, the importance of masks to identity, why we can't see the El Santo movies anymore, masculinity and machismo in Latino culture, and who gets to use Batman's weight room. 

Check out "La Mano Del Destino" at www.castleandkeypublications.com

The second half of the episode is devoted to Martin Casaus, better known as "Marty the Moth" on the El Rey Network's popular show, "Lucha Underground". He talks about crafting his maniacal character, what makes "Lucha Underground" so much more plot driven than other wrestling shows, why wrestlers are such savvy vloggers, his injuries on WWE's "Tough Enough" encouraging people's fitness journeys and much more.

"Rock Candy Mountain" is a hilarious and action packed comic detailing the adventures of hobos, and talking to writer/artist Kyle Starks and colorist Chris Schweizer is equally fast paced. It's a delirious book packed with colorful characters that's part historical, part supernatural and always ridiculous. They break down the false stereotypes of hobos, the code they live by, parody vs. satire, how to pick your hobo name, wuxia kung fu movies, the closing of Toys R Us and so much more.

 Sybil Danning is a goddess of 80s action film cinema. Statuesque and vivacious, she featured in such films as "Howling 2", "Battle Beyond the Stars", "Chained Heat" and "Reform School Girls". Wendi and guest host Brian Kirst of "Big Gay Horror Fan" have a fantastic time listening to her tell Hollywood stories about working with people like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Clint Eastwood, wrangling Klaus Kinski, the behind the scenes work of producing your own films, writing her new comic book "Ruger", and being a feminist icon. She conveys a wonderful positive spirit of encouragement!

Artist Tana Ford has carved out a name for herself in autobiographical comics, slice of life stories, mainstream Spider-man tales and historical narratives. Her style bounces around from the dynamic fun of "Silk" to map illustrations. In this episode she talks about Sean Gordon Murphy's mentorship program, the "bury your gays" trope, winning the Prism Comics Queer Press grant for her book "Duck!", gives her cocktail recipe for the Tanhattan, and tells some incredibly heartwarming and courageous stories from the history of the Boston Marathon.
