TOTLB S09 Rob Guillory

Rob has now been on our show for the second time! He is such a nice, and chill guy!! In 2008 Guillory rose to fame, working on his, Image Comics book, New York Times Best-Seller, Chew! Born in Louisiana, he “started” his artist career at The University of Louisana! But of course, he really started his career years before, pre-college, drawing and doodling where/when he could.

For this interview, we will be speaking with Rob about his Image Comics book, Farmhand.

The last time we spoke with Rob, the only thing he could tell us, was the title of the comic book. Now we get to learn all about, what promises to be his next big hit! He was already around issue five when we spoke, but because it hadn’t been released yet, the details were scarce. Farmhand released on July 11th, 2018, to great reviews! Chase Magnett of Comicbook.com gave it a 5 out of 5 stars, and said “There is a real beating heart behind their story in addition to the many beating hearts found in the farm itself. ”

Farmhand is all about farmer, Jedidiah Jenkins. As with all of the awesome stories that Guillory tells, Jedidiah doesn’t grow corn, or soy, or onions. This farm is growing limbs!! If you lose a limb, just call Mr. Jenkins, and he will get you something new, farm to body! BUT, there is something growing underneath Jedidiah’s farm, that promises to uproot his life!! Do NOT miss out on this dark comedy by friend of the show, Rob Guillory. If you’re a fan of Rob’s, you already know the awesome dark humor he has, but if you don’t, this is something you should definitely be putting in your pull slot! Call your local comic book store now, and order it!!

Road Trip – Preview Night

It all starts at 4pm two days ago.

Juan picks me up in a minivan with his wife and kids and we get on our way for the over night drive to California.  

As with most overnight drives it ends up being a crazy blur.  I know what happened, I know the places that we stopped, but holy shit that is a long drive.  When we made it to LA (our first stop to drop off Juan’s wife and kids to visit family) I crashed for a couple of hours.  Then I got treated to lunch at Clearman’s North Woods Inn. This place is old school steakhouse at its finest. I honestly loved their take on the chop salad with bleu cheese and could probably just eat bowl after bowl of it!

It was then time to make the trek from LA to San Diego.  What should have been a two hour drive turned into an ordeal at four, but with good music and good company it wasn’t that bad.  I love spending time with Juan, and I’m excited for what the the weekend will bring us.

We were running late for our first interview, and had to postpone them, but I got checked into my hotel room and then we made our way to the convention center.  Checking in was no big deal, and finding our way around just wasn’t that hard. Honestly the space just isn’t as complicated to get into and navigate as Denver Comic Con is.

Interviews were conducted with Sherrilyn Kenyon (an author of dark fiction)

and Rob Guillory who’s new book Farmhand just came out.  

Getting the first two under my belt kind of put me at ease, and now that I know I’ll be able to get around the convention pretty easy and that I still have the ability to interview people without cracking, I’m cranked.
