The weather is getting colder, the days are slowly getting shorter, and there's pumpkin in literally everything. That can only mean one thing:
NYCC is almost here.
And as we get ready for what I believe is either our 9th or 10th trip down to the Javits Center, we thought it would be fun to hype ourselves and you, dear listener, with some pre-NYCC festivities by talking with not one but two(!) artists you'll be able to find in Artist Alley next week.
First up, Christopher Jones. The longtime artist for the Young Justice comic with many other titles to his name, Christopher is going to be making the move out West to California soon as he takes on his new role working even closer with the YJ team....what fun information am I withholding? Guess you'll have to listen to find out! If you're going to be at NYCC next week, stop by Christopher's booth at AA table B-10. Not going to NYCC? No sweat, check out his website here!
Closing out the show is a one-on-one chat between Alex and artist Domo Stanton! This is one of those rare situations where I get to be an audience member for my own show as Alex flew this one solo while I was busy doing boring adult things like "work". Anyway, Domo is a full-time comic artist/designer who has worked on projects such as Sandman: House of Whispers and FX's CHOSEN. Just like Christopher, he's going to be at NYCC this coming week at table E-36 so while you're doing your con prep, be sure to check out his work and stop by his table at the show!
Huge thank you to both Christopher and Domo for taking the time to chat with us this week despite one of the largest conventions in the country lurking just around the corner. If you enjoyed this episode be sure to let us know. Half hour spots with people is just too short sometimes and we're always looking for excuses to have rad guests on for their triumphant return...

I know I'm kind of required to say this but this week's episode is just too choice. With that said, I think it's time we bring back "choice" when describing radical things as it is criminally under-utilized in today's vernacular.
There's a 99% chance I used at least 3 words incorrectly in that last sentence but I'm just going to roll with it. On to the good stuff:
This week we were joined Andrew MacLean! Andrew is the creator/artist/writer of "Head Lopper" (Image Comics) and this week he made a guest appearance on our show to hype the upcoming release of his latest collection: Head Lopper Volume 3: Head Lopper & The Knights of Venora on sale September 18th!
Check out our chat with Andrew as we dive into the creation and style of the man called Norgal and how even lost pallets of comics couldn't keep Head Lopper from becoming Image comics' most beloved bearded viking.
