TOTLB 062 The Quickie Stop

totlb-916-300
Hello everyone!! Our 62st episode comes from the amazing hallowed halls of Gabe’s nerdvana!
Our pick for this recording’s #popcultureclassic is the 1968, George Romero classic, Night of the Living Dead. We all know that this is the mother of all zombie movies. All zombie movies got their roots thanks to George Romero, and Night of the Living Dead. This happens to be Juan’s favorite movie of all time, but you know that Gabe loves it as well! Hear our opinions!!
There are TWO amazing interviews in this episode!!
The first interview comes from an amazing colorist, Nick Filardi! Nick has worked on MANY of your favorite characters, including; Batman, Superman, Deadpool, Hellboy, and SO many more!! Right now Nick is working on the Oni Press book, Heartthrob. It’s all about a girl named Callie, who gets a heart transplant and suddenly is robbing banks, and has a horrible boyfriend! We also talk a little bit about the colorists importance to a book, and the need for more recognition!
Our second interview of the day comes from Barbra, and Bryant Dillon! THE driving force behind Fanbase Press! We have interviewed MANY people who create the beautiful books of Fanbase, but this time, we speak to the people in charge!! The tell us about their mission to ensure that our culture, is one of inclusivity, and growth!! The books that come out of Fanbase Press (Hero Hotel, Quince, Penguins VS Possums, Gamma Gals, etc) ALL exemplify this notion of inclusion. This is a company that is amazing at the moment, but is just getting more amazing with every book and interview they put out. They are leading the way for sure!!

TOTLB 057 Y The Last Jon

totlb-916-300
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!

TOTLB 050 The Rocky Mountain Gilmore Girl

totlb-916-300
ALL the way from beautiful Rocky Mountain Comic Con, we bring you the awesome 50th episode of the Thinking Outside the Long Box Podcast!! We are half way to our original goal, AND tattoo’s!!
This is the first time that we have gathered since the infamous Walking Dead premier!! We talk about the two big deaths that happen, and how that will effect the loved ones going forward! Of course, Gabe, and Jon are still not caught up! We talk bout the standalone Wonder Woman movie, and the difference between the standalone movies cramming together a team up. There are issues in the Batman movie, AND issues in The Flash movie, and that is not boding well for the behind the scenes DC universe.
We have two AMAZING interviews for this show!! The first interview that you will hear comes from the hilarious Aris Alvarado!! Aris has done MANY different TV shows, and movies, but his most well known role has to be that of Caesar, in the Gilmore Girls TV show! He tells us the story of how he got the part of Caesar, when originally he was supposed to be a foreign exchange student!! We talk about so many other stories, and we also touch on the revival, which he is in as well!! The best thing about this interview is Aris is so upbeat, and has so much positive energy! The interview made our day, because he was such a humble dude!! This is what I hope for all actors to be like! Don’t miss him, and the revival when it comes out on Thanksgiving!!
Our next interview comes from the creative team of Quince, from Fanbase Press! This comic book tells the story of a young lady, on the verge of her quinceanera, who also learns that she has gained super powers!! She has to navigate through a teenage life, at the same time as navigating through her newfound super powers! It’s hard enough being a teenager……..Listening to Kit, Emma, and Sebastian talk about this book is inspiring!! They talk about diversity in comics, and just in general, and how important that issue is! This comic book will also be available for sale in spanish, which is something different, and very important for a book like this! This team works perfect together, and you can definitely tell that they have a passion for each other, and a passion for what they do!!
We also have a quick interview from Mike Grell, on the show room floor! It’s a short interview, but it’s awesome. He tells us about Green Arrow, and a few other characters he had his hand in!!
For our #PopCultureClassics segment, we talk about the star packed movie, from Quentin Tarantino, From Dusk Till Dawn! Jon and Gabe tell us about some of the first times that they watched the movie, and why Jon’s wife doesn’t necessarily remember watching. It’s pretty hilarious, you don’t want to miss that! But, we also discuss the amazing star power that this movie has, and what other projects spawned after they were in this movie!! We also talk bout the plot, and how the movie is almost two seperate movies in one! This NSFW movie, is DEFINITELY a must watch if you like vampire movies!! It brings the gore, the sex, and the action that is perfect in this type of a movie!!
Remember, you can ALWAYS let us know what you think! We can only think of so many things to talk about every other week, and would LOVE to get some feedback and ideas from all of you out there who are listening!! You can send mp3s and email to our email address. Also, join the conversations on our Facebook Page and Twitter Page. Also, if you have good feedback, please leave it for us on iTunes and Stitcher!!
