Tim Across America pt 3! Visiting Chicago, Tim links up with some local comics people, including a couple we’ve heard from before, for a wide-ranging discussion. Topics include: Public perception of comics and comics readers in the US; interactions between US comics and manga; reasons not to use comics as a stepping stone to getting your movie made; living with the creative impulse; the relative lack of diverse voices in American comics; and more.
- Ed Siemienkowicz, creator of the comic Chrome and Dust, and also of the Voice of the Republic podcast (and Deconstructing Comics episode 227);
- Dale Lazarov, writer of gay erotic comics such as Nightlife and Manly (and previously heard in Deconstructing Comics episode 202);
- Tim Seeley, co-creator of Hack/Slash;
- Brian Crowley, creator of the Web comic Hamster Rage; and
- Onrie Kompan, creator of Yi Soon Shin.
Also: Tim talks to Shanna Wallace at the Edgewater location of Chicago’s Graham Crackers Comics!
