Podcast 121: The Hipster Beard

Direct Download (1:40:27)

I often read James Blundell’s comic book blog, A Comic Book Addict!!, and in May 2017 he posted “So I Wrote a Comic“. He described the process by which he and artist Ayoade Abobarin created a four-page comic titled “The Hipster Beard”. I wanted to know more, so I invited James and Ayoade to talk about their experience.

Podcast 116: A Conversation with Gregg Schigiel, Creator of PIX

Direct Download (1:46:41)

I had so much fun chatting with Gregg Schigiel, the creator of PIX: One Weirdest Weekend (v1) and the forthcoming second volume, PIX: Too Super for School, which is available May 3, 2017, at your local comic shop or where finer books are sold. We talked about the publication of PIX through Image Comics, and Gregg answers many questions about PIX v1 (if you want to hear a more in-depth summary of PIX v1, listen to Episode 83). I learned a lot about Gregg’s creative process and his love of bears.

Special thanks to George of the George and Tony Entertainment Show for making this conversation possible. See the Links below to find out more about George’s weekly podcast about pop culture.

In cooperation with George of the George and Tony Entertainment Show, I am republishing my review of Gregg Schigiel’s PIX: One Weirdest Weekend, along with George’s discussion with Mr. Schigiel about how Image Comics is now publishing the first volume and soon the second, PIX: Too Super for School! Be sure to order PIX volume 1 from Image Comics (DEC160764) before the January 30 final order cut-off, and preorder volume 2 from the March Previews catalog. I highly recommend this great comic!
