We haven’t read much of anything in the graphic storytelling format that beats Alex Robinson’s Tricked. He was gracious enough to come on this week’s episode and chat with Tim. Enjoy!
Matt Silady is nice enough to come on the show, even after our lousy review of his book! Matt reveals to Tim why doing a photo-based comic isn’t being “lazy” and how he got his book published by AIT/Planet Lar! (Hint: location, location…)
Patrik Washburn talks to Tim about his Comic Market table, being a full-time artist, and recent Marvel comics.
Patrik Washburn had a table on Day One of the Comic Market event in Tokyo. Tim, Mulele, and Patrick Gannon checked it out, and sat down afterwards to discuss their impressions for the podcast.
Michao (Kodansha’s Web comics site)
(in Japanese; membership is free, but you need to log in to read the comics)
Earth Ranger, from Playfullness Comics
Tim and Brandon discuss three graphic novels: Maxwell Strangewell (like Men in Black, but better), Fun Home (and why it shouldn’t be made into a movie), and The Homeless Channel (argh! Black Diamond flashback!). Plus: Crayon Shin-Chan and Marvel comics for the military…
Mulele’s been talking to Kodansha for a year. Might the resulting comic end up dropped into a manga contest for non-Japanese?
How can an artist, in any medium, manage the audience’s expectations, so that they enjoy change and evolution, rather than rejecting it as different from what they have come to expect?
How comics & movies have influenced each other: what Scott McCloud won’t tell you! Also, digital inking and All-Star Superman! Mulele, Patrick, Tim, and Tim’s brother Paul discuss.
Some differences between Japanese and Western comics. Also, the latest on Mulele’s discussions with Japanese comics publisher Kodansha!
