After 4 days of Comic Con, fatigue is starting to set in. My friend and collaborator Chris Miskiewicz (www.welcometotripcity.com) skipped out today and dragged ourselves to the park instead, and in this podcast episode we chat about going to conventions, the importance of wearing comfortable shoes, making connections, pitching and overcoming con fatigue.
Eisner Award nominated artist Joseph Remnant (www.josephremnant.com) talks about why he got into comics and what makes him keep going. Great insights and advice from a very humble and very talented writer/artist. Check out the Remnant illustrated book Harvey Pekar’s Cleveland and the creator-owned project Cartoon Clouds at www.theexpositorcomics.com
Artist and writer Reilly Brown (www.reillybrownart.com) is known for his work on Marvel books such as The Amazing Spiderman, Cable & Deadpool and his creator-owned Power Play (www.powerplaycomic.com). In this episode he talks about robots, monsters and pottery! Great insights from a great artist and a great guy.
Interviews conducted at Comic Con in San Diego. First Eisner Award winning Nate Powell (www.seemybrotherdance.org) talks about making comics in two-hour chunks while taking care of his 1-year old daughter. Apologies for the bad audio – totally my fault! Secondly I talked to indie creator Josh Shalek (www.joshshalek.com) about his self-published book Falling Rock National Park.
