Double Page Spread

Daniel Warren Johnson has been one of the hottest up and coming artists for a couple years now, from his comic "Space Mullet" to the complex futuristic revenge nihilism of "Extremity". He has a new book from Image Comics called "Murder Falcon" that captures the manic energy of shredding guitar and killing monsters. He talks to Wendi about his own guitar chops, what's up with death metal fonts, integrating manga into western comics, his phenomenal art rep Felix Lu, and much more!

It's the annual traditional visit of longtime friends of the podcast, Andrew Shaw and Dan Pua! This year they are wrapping up the best of summer, except apparently it isn't summer in Australia. But that doesn't stop them from discussing the best books and movies and cakes of the past 3 months! Wendi has had the "summer of bears" and more drama at the 2 banana job, Andrew's comic "Cul de Sac" is finally on Comixology, and Dan takes more pictures of his kitties. Apologies for the less than perfect audio, thank you for sticking with us!

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.
