As always it’s such a pleasure to welcome comic writer JEREMY HOLT back to VODKA O’CLOCK. He brings us up to date on the AFTER HOUDINI series, his new one-shot with Chris Peterson called PULP, and his part of the Dynamite Comics anthology PATHFINDER: GOBLINS.
For the first time on VODKA O’CLOCK, comic writer and occasional actor VITO DELSANTE stops by to talk about life as a new dad, making comics, and his current WORLD WAR MOB graphic novel.
Back on the show and taking two hours out of his insane schedule is DIRK MANNING, author of WRITE OR WRONG: A WRITER’S GUIDE TO CREATING COMICS and many comics such as NIGHTMARE WORLD and TALES OF MR. RHEE. We spend quite a bit of time chatting about each project and recapping our experience together at Detroit Fanfare. Philosophy, heroism and faith cap off our visit.
It’s great to welcome back one of my favorite people in the world, comics writer PAUL ALLOR, to this week’s episode of VODKA O’CLOCK. Paul fills us in on his latest creator owned comic STRANGE NATION and his new franchise work on TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES and G.I. JOE. plus Dynamite Comics’ anthology PATHFINDER: GOBLINS.
The call was answered when FABIAN RANGEL, JR. sent me his miniseries DOC UNKNOWN. Time for the typical comparison: if you like…. Indiana Jones, Athena Voltaire, Batman, Green Hornet, Kim Possible and pulp detective stories, then yes, you will love DOC UNKNOWN.
If you didn’t know, consider yourself informed, that there is an International GoTopless Day. This year it’s August 25, 2013.
Joining the Vodka O’Clock Podcast this week is Zack Kruse who is the organizer of the Appleseed Comics and Art Convention in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
VODKA O’CLOCK 1331 with @JordanStratford on Wollstonecraft, female protagonists & scientists, & Wonder Woman
Jordan recently ran a very successful Kickstarter campaign to fund his book series WOLLSTONECRAFT, a fictionalized tale about young Ada Lovelace and her best friend Mary Shelley with cameos by other historical figures. He also has great theories on Wonder Woman.
Adam’s first foray into comics was editing the Popgun anthology which then immediately won a Harvey Award and an Eisner Award in consecutive years. He still had to face the submission process in a later volume of the anthology and faced rejection.
Eric is a literary agent, entertainment lawyer, and actor. This is a very long edition of VOC, happily so. We hadn’t talked in a while so it’s about two hours of romance, erotica, sex, BDSM, LGBT, publishing, pitfalls, and my unbridled enthusiasm unleashed.
