wip pages for a thing that will be long and meandering!

your podcast is great, as someone making their first steps into taking making sequential art very seriously the insight from all your interviews is solid gold. I hope this isn't taken the wrong way, but are there any other podcasts you would recommend with creator and industry insight in the vein of your own podcast?

Confession time, i dont actually listen to other podcasts. but i like the guys that do Tell Me something i dont know and i have heard good things about Silence and Make it then tell everybody. 

What do you think are the best interviews you've done?

Have you ever tried to get an interview with Alex Schubert?

Kind of. we started one and then a cluster of problems happened and i have been to sheepish to follow up. 

Do you think its important for you to be a huge fan of someone's work in order to conduct an interesting interview with them?

Not necessarily, but i dont think i need to be interested in the person’s work or their motivations as an artist. I can tell if i’ve done a shitty interview if i obviously didnt care about their work. 

Have you ever tried to get an interview with Jonny Mnemonic?

Have you ever tried to get an interview with Jonny Negron?

I’ve asked him, he wasnt really very responsive, so i didn’t follow up. 

And in all honesty, i am not the hugest fan. I appreciate it visually, but i dont get the same connection that others do.

I pencilled and inked four pages of Glorkian Warrior book three today while listening to this amazing interview with Rob Liefeld. The man has a really infectious love of comics. Anyone who wants to cut their own path through life should listen. I think he would be great fun to draw with, he has a really flamboyant style. He’s really passionate about creating, and really passionate about engaging an audience. I think he’s right… You gotta keep your audience in mind, especially if you’re trying to create something that’s going to blow them away.

Our LA journey brought us to the home of one of the most Memorable characters in comics. There’s not much for me to say about Rob Liefeld that you probably don’t already know. He was an artist at Marvel for his early career, creating characters such as Cable and Deadpool and the poly-bagged X-Force #1. Left Marvel to cofound Image Comics. Created Youngblood and a whole bunch more there, including Prophet(which Brandon and roadtrip buddy, Simon Roy, are both current creators on).

Rob was a very welcoming host, chatting with us for several hours about the highs and lows of comics. It was probably the most energetic part of the LA roadtrip, thanks to Rob’s infectious loves of pictures and words on paper.
