Episode 44 – “Die Bold Comics”

Show notes: In the first half of this episode I share some podcasting news. My wife Nicki and I were recently on the Supergirl Radio podcast to talk about our day trip up to the Metropolis Superman Celebration, plus I talk about Michael Rosenbaum’s upcoming new Talk Ville podcast with SMALLVILLE co-star Tom Welling. Both were in Metropolis for the Superman Celebration this year along with Superman voice actor George Newbern, and artists Rick Burchett, Matthew Clark, and Guy Gilchrist.

In the second half of the show I talk with indie comics writer (and former Memphian) John Holland about his three latest Die Bold Comics projects – A Girl and Her Dog (July), 2 Tons Of Fury (December), and his upcoming Kickstarter campaign for the Alma: Champion comic (soon).

Thanks to John for taking time out to come on the show (twice). Look forward to seeing him back in the M-town this September at the Memphis Comic ExpoDonnieCon ROCKS!

Stay well, stay tooned, and keep drawing funny!

Was sorry to hear of the recent passing of super-talented artist Tim Sale. His Superman For All Seasons book with Jeph Loeb is one of my all time favorite Superman stories. He was 66 years old.
