Welcome to The Hall H Show – where hosts Aaron Nabus and Alex Benedicto connect, engage and put the Hall H spotlight on pop culture / comic book artists, writers and other creatives. See you in Artist Alley!
Ep. 108: Clay Adams (PBOW: World War Bitch 1-2)
On this episode, Hall H Show host, Aaron Nabus chats with writer, actor and director, Clay Adams. You might know him for his voice acting work on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fast Forward and several seasons of Yugioh. He was last on the show back in October of 2020, on episode 99, where he and David Schrader talked about their horror themed comic book anthology, Nightmare Theater.
He’s back to talk about one of his own comics, PBOW: World War Bitch 1-2, the grindhouse action comedy sequel to Pregnant Bitches of War (Dystopian sci-fi for mature readers that's The Handmaid's Tale meets Kill Bill). PBOW: World Pregnant Bitches of War is on Kickstarter until June, 17, 2021.
Clay also shares some great writing, Kickstarter and voice acting advice. Enjoy!
Ep. 107: Terry Mayo and Dave Swartz (Buddy)
Writer, Terry Mayo (The Wicked Righteous, Disposable Legends) and artist, Dave Swartz (Feast or Famine, Confederate Monster) talk with host, Aaron Nabus about their indie comic, Buddy (a family friendly horror tale about a pug trying to save his family from a horde of demons). The last full day to back on Kickstarter is Saturday, 6/5/21).
We talk about how Terry has 14 kids (just joking...but his family is growing) and his job as a nurse, Dave's fascination with words and philosophy, and so much more (the both of them also share some valuable advice for aspiring comic book creators)!
I hope to one day hang out with the both of them and maybe sing some karaoke (make sure to listen to this episode to find out what Terry sang to win second place in a contest in the 90's). Enjoy!
Ep. 106: Jay Jay Maniquis (Jaycation)
Hey there Hall H Show listeners, Aaron Nabus here and joining me on this episode is Jay Jay Maniquis, a pop culture fan (Back to the Future is his favorite movie) and food and travel vlogger with a fast growing YouTube channel called Jaycation. On this episode we talk about growing up in San Diego, his travels to Spain, France, Italy, New Zealand, The Philippines and other places, the importance of engaging with your fans and community, San Diego Comic-Con, his love for CW shows (Arrow, The Flash, One Tree Hill, Dawson’s Creek), and so much more!
At the time of our chat he was about 150 subscribers from the 30k milestone (which he has since passed) – congratulations, Jay Jay! He does a lot for local businesses and also in providing great value for “Jaycationers” (like me). So let’s all continue to support him as he makes his way to his personal goal of 100k YouTube subscribers!
This was a fun and informative chat with Jay Jay and I hope to meet up with him soon for some good food and beer! Enjoy!
Ep. 105: Tilly and Susan Bridges
Hello fellow nerds, geeks and supporters of indie pop culture creators! Aaron Nabus here and welcome to the Hall H Show! I appeared recently on The Writers Block (hosted by Rylend Grant and David Avellone) with my guests for episode 105, Tilly and Susan Bridges.
That was a fun conversation, not about writing, but about creating podcasts, which they produce, along with audio dramas, through their company, Pendant Productions.
Though, Tilly and Susan are also writers, having written their own comic book, Killswitch.
On this episode, we talk about their “meet cute” moment, Pendant Productions, Killswitch, pizza, Star Trek, Trans Tuesday and so much more...enjoy! ~Aaron
Ep. 104: Susan Botello (International Mobile Film Festival 2021)
International Mobile Film Festival 2021 will be taking place virtually on April 23-25, 2021.
This festival is an annual celebration of mobile filmmaking that is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year!
For some, it may seem like making movies on your smartphone has only been trending fairly recently, but our guest for this episode, Susan Botello, has been promoting the possibilities of mobile filmmaking since the first iPhone came out in 2007 – maybe even before that!
She’s the owner of SBP Productions, founder of the International Mobile Film Festival, “The Voice for Mobile Film”, as the host of the SBP Podcast, creator of Mobile Film Stories, a frequent guest of the Hall H Show, and a spokesperson for San Diego’s Fish Taco industry!
Welcome back to the show, Susy! ~Aaron
Ep. 103: Steven Prince (Monster Matador)
Steven Prince makes his return to the Hall H Show and talks to host, Aaron Nabus about his comic book, Monster Matador: Tango of the Matadors (now on Kickstarter until May 5 2021), Meltdown Comics, Chow Yun Fat, Elvis Presley, and so much more!
Not just for the uber geeky creator
Great conversations and energy with this show.
This podcast inspires me and the hosts are supporting passionate artists. Their podcasts are entertaining, informative and again...inspiring!
Highlight the artists and con stars we love
Aaron and Alex offer a lot of support in the comic-con community and their podcast is one of the best examples of that. It's great hearing from artists and other industry pros. They also record all their epsidoes in person which makes for a really engaging show.
