TalkCast 378 – The Atomic Frenchie




Little Giant Comics OLD School COMIC SHOW

 

It is yet another two-guest show for us.  Our first guest is Jason Brodnick. Jason is the force behind the Little Giant Comics OLD SCHOOL COMIC SHOW being held on April 28th.  in Concord New Hampshire. Jason talked with us about the reasons behind an large, one day event in a central location wit a family friendly entrance fee, plenty of parking and it the tradition of a “comic” conventions, mostly comics. This convention is a hybrid of the larger events and micro-cons combining what Jason feels is the best of both worlds.

Our second guest is the ever-popular New York Times Best Selling Author Thomas E. Sniegoski, a great friend of the show. Tom drops in to talk about his contribution to the upcoming edition of My Peculiar Family II Kickstarter. As is usual when Tom joins us, it is a fun relaxing wide-ranging conversation. Tom also got to talk about his newest book collaboration with Tom McWeenie, The Atomic Frenchie. This is a wonderfully funny kind of graphic novel about a French Bulldog Super Villain (in no way related to his own dog Kirby whatsoever). We talked about how the story came about, how he reached out to Tom McWeenie to collaborate on this and the trials and tribulations of bringing something so different to press. Tom was, as usual, his effervescent self and is was just a joy to have him back. (There may or may not have been leaked as nugget about Toms newest project towards the end of the interview, just sayin’)

To be honest, there may have been news afterwards but Dome had some wonderfully annoying technical difficulties and didn’t hear anything after Toms interview ended.

Isn’t chaos wonderful?

TalkCast 377 – (Insert Snappy Title Here)




It’s another two-guest episode.

Nicole Dubuc

Nicole Dubuc

An actress, a show runner, a voice actor and a comic book writer all walk into a podcast.

Well tonight that’s one person, the multi talented writer of Darby Pop Publishing’s Bruce Lee comic, Nicole Dubuc. We get a chance to talk about all of her past and current roles and the many things she is doing now. Nicole talks about why the Bruce Lee – The Walk of the Dragon comic is so special to her and her working with Shannon Lee in putting this project together. We barely scratched the surface of who she is and what she does.

 

Griffin Ess

Griffin Ess

Then Griffin Ess joined us. Griffin was ostensibly here to talk about Nuclear Physics and the Rise of Neo-Colonialism in Global Diversity. At the last minute he decided to change his agenda and instead we talked about his unique contribution to My Peculiar Family 2 (currently at a Kickstarter near you) both in written form as well his very interesting reward. He also revealed a bit about his upcoming Kickstarter with his co-conspirator George O’Connor, his current projects on Shaded Areas and the affects of chocolate on the human nervous system (a pet project of his).

TalkCast 375 – Vampire Accountancy




Drew Hayes

Drew Hayes

Have you ever read a book and said to yourself, “Self, I would love to talk to the guy who wrote this stuff.” Well, in this episode I get that chance. I first found a copy of The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant in a books store a few years back. It was so different and amusing and so unlike anything currently available in urban paranormal vampire stuff that I finished the book in one day. Having devoured it, I immediately found whatever else I could written by Drew Hayes and each was better than the previous.

Drew Hayes, it turns out has written a bunch of stuff and its all slightly off kilter and interesting as hell. Drew and I spent this episode talking about some of his ongoing series, The “Fred” Series, Super Powered, NPCs and a bunch more you can find here. One of the more interesting things we spoke about was what its like being an independent author and how it affects his interaction with readers and fans.

I’m really glad I stumbled onto his work. I hope you will be to.

Enjoy the chaos

TalkCast 374 – Keith Gleason in Plastic City




Plastic City Comic Con

Plastic City Comic Con

In this episode we are joined by Keith Gleason to talk about Plastic City Comic Con 2018. It’s being held at the Wallace Civic Center in Fitchburg Ma. again this year on Saturday April 21st from10am to 6pm. One of the best of the new breed of Micro-Cons, Plastic City is now 3 years old and because of its size and place has some wonderfully unique features:

  • Entrance fee: $ 5.00
  • Kids 12 and under free
  • Free parking

Keith talked about many new things happening this year including special guests Corin Nemec and J.M. Dematteis and his Kickstarter to help bring more awareness to the convention and his work, a comic called The Mighty Mascots.

One of the most important aspects about Plastic City Comic Con is that they have no intention of moving to a multi-day format or new location for the foreseeable future. The thinking behind that is to keep costs low for the participants as well as attendees. In this respect, Keith is working very hard to commit to the Micro-Con concept and the fact that this is their third year is proof that the Micro-Con is a very viable option for all and tons of fun. Join Sci Fi Saturday Night there and say hi.

In This Weeks News Conversation:

Enjoy The Chaos.

Dan Abella

It all started with a book. For our guest, in 2012, the book was Valis. The author of the book was Philip Kindred Dick. Our guest on this episode is the mind behind The Philip K. Dick Science Fiction Film Festival in New York City, Dan Abella. We got to talk with Dan on a wide range of subject that touched upon the origin of his fascination with PKD. What started him reading his works, why he started the festival, how the festival is curated, why they choose the works they do and so much more. Dan spoke about many of the works showing this year and mentioned some of his hidden gems. Among then are the feature ‘Ayla’ and the short ‘Methane Momma’ starring Melvin Van Peebles. He also talked about the stars that are involved in many of the films over the years including Margot Kidder and Keir Dullea in HENRi (from their very first festival).

It was an interview filled with information and great fun. Please, enjoy the chaos.
