    Episode 8 Our discussion of Lovecraft Country. Happy Halloween!

    My Artist JP Jackson and I discuss the series Lovecraft Country. It's only fitting that we discuss the horror scifi fantasy series based on the novel by Matt Ruff on all hallows eve! Here we give our thoughts on the popular HBO show, it's structure, the characters and its impact on culture given the times in which it aired. Hope you enjoy! Don't forget to head over to the kickstarter for our graphic novel Ancient Illumination Volume 1! We have made some nice progress thanks to our backs but have a ways to go.

    Episode 6 Interview with TJ Sterling, creator of Okemus and President/Illustrationaire for RAE comics!

    Today I get the opportunity to speak with TJ Sterling! An inspiring artist who has worked with both Marvel and DC, but more impressively is coming off of a highly successful Kickstarter for his sci-fi Manga Sentai-esk action epic comic series Okemus! A genre I had never heard before to be sure. If you are interested in learning more about his work check out the site for RAE comics here! There is awesome colorful art work there with what sounds like a compelling story! I certainly can't wait for the book to arrive and will be getting the three previous. Indy comics need love too!

    Epsiode 5 Reboots, rehashes or remixes to old stories and IP's why so many?

    Today my artist Jordan P. Jackson joins me to discuss why the trend has continues for film studios to reboot older IP's instead of going with new ideas of which we have plenty to choose from? Mulan struggled mightily and did not pave the way for successful digital only releases but I am sure others will try regardless. (Looking at you WW84) Listen to our thoughts and if compelled audio comment yours!
