Hello everyone!! The 57th episode comes straight to you from the dungeon that Gabe calls his basement!
Our pick for this recording’s #popcultureclassic is the 2002 comic book, Y: The Last Man. It was written by Brian K. Vaughan and drawn by Pia Guerra. The story revolves around a virus, illness, or some agent, that destroys any male mammal on earth! Yorick brown, and his monkey, are the only 2 surviving males, and the story follows their attempts to figure out what happened! I think both Gabe and Juan (and Jon, but he wasn’t there) have a favorable few of this book! Juan even finished the whole series!
Two interviews coming to you in this episode. The first comes from Stefano Terry, about his book, The Gamma Gals, coming out of Fanbase Press. This is a 4 issue digital comic book, featuring three D&D fans, who wake up from a gamma-irradiated storm, to find out that they all have special powers! Stefano tells us the origin story of this book, and some of the reasons he decided to create it. Some of which, happens to be “representation.” He tells us about wanting the book to be diverse, and not just the same types of characters we have seen forever! Great guy, great story, great interview!
Our second interview is with local creator, Joe Vallen! He is the writer for various books, but our focus for this interview was, The Adventures of Jesus and Frankenstein. Joe tells us about how this odd couple comes to be, and exactly what kind of adventures they are taking us on. Joe keeps himself busy by working on this, and MANY other titles, and is a big advocate for pushing the comic community forward. Hear him talk about how he does that in his professional life, aside from creating, but also match making. You’ll like this interview, Joe has some great insights into the business!
