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.
The phrase uttered by you can alienate the other person tremendously. It does nothing productive for them. It smothers them with a blanket of guilt and shame because it implies that our lives are fully in our control and we know that they are not.
Rape Culture in Cosplay: I’ve personally witnessed a famous Wizard World cosplay judge ask a contestant if her breasts were “real or after-market” while she was on stage.
If you pull out soundbytes and quotes of Moran, she seems to be perfectly stable and makes a lot of sense but when you hear those bits inside a larger story, you’ll find her saying the opposite of whatever she just said too.
His advice was often the same: channel it into your work (writing, art, whatever). That famous line comes up time and again, “Bleed on the page.”
This Go Fund Me was created while Christine Lawson was still fighting for her life. Her surviving family still has to pay those medical bills. Every little bit helps.
This nascent Comic Book Retailer Alliance plans to have their first meeting in May at the Diamond Retailers Summit where the founding members will iron out their mission statement. In my personal opinion, if Larry’s Comics wants to be a dues-paying member of such an organization, that’s fine but I would not want to see Doherty on the board.
Today’s guest RYAN K. LINDSAY returns to VODKA O’CLOCK to talk all about his new series HEADSPACE available through Monkeybrain Comics. A surreal trip inside the mind of a serial killer where readers get to meet interesting characters going through their own developments. ** Mild spoilers within.
I really hate when people accuse others of making excuses for not getting on with a project. Fear is very real and it’s in my way.
People are blamed for their cancer if they’re smokers; people are blamed for their diabetes if they’re fat. Surprisingly, there is an awful lot of blame surrounding how someone chooses to face their battle with mental illness.
Returning to VODKA O’CLOCK is writer/model LELA GWENN who gives updates on her Nerd Bondage Projekt and her current comic book series BORN DARK which is on Kickstarter.
Let’s take a look back on the good times and the controversies of the year. For VODKA O’CLOCK’s Year in Review, I was joined by author DENNIS TAFOYA and multi-media star MEREDITH PLACKO.
When I think about how long these characters have been around, I believe every story possible has been told. Then I come across something like INJUSTICE which blows me away.
There are creepy people everywhere and in modeling, it’s no prevalent. Before modeling, I was a massage therapist so I had a slight introduction in how to deal with creepy men.
This is not a “comic” con. It’s definitely a “pop culture” con. Half the slated guests are actors and entertainers who are not comic book creators. The great thing is that the comic creators they do have booked are amazingly talented people that love the medium, support each other’s work, and are happy to meet fans.
Prior to the 2013 alleged assault against KaythulhuFerret, Shotwell already had a felony conviction which included “Sexual Conduct with a Minor” and “Attempting to Commit Dangerous Crimes Against Children,” according to the rap sheet on mugshots.com. KaythulhuFerret said in her video that she was barely 18. Age does not justify drugging someone and raping her.
The issue and debates of sexual harassment have really taken the stage in 2013. There are incredible awareness campaigns and efforts by people who will no longer sit idly by and watch our beloved social scenes (IRL and online) stained by those few bad apples spoiling an entire industry’s good time.
A story where one mightier than thou golden boy feels the need to hunt down his demonically cursed siblings and go after dear ol’ dad too is just the sort of thing that I’m willing to try. Never did I think that I’d end up officially modeling as Annie Belle with recruited cosplayer Bryan Treakle to be Silas.
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.
I have a very special appearance coming up at the Richmond Virginia Comic Con where I’ll be part of a Hollywood style photoshoot for James Kuhoric’s DEAD IRONS comic.
