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.

Direct Download (30:22)

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!
