Sweet tagline, right? I came up with not too long ago for the bi-monthly Sequential Underground podcast (which we don’t link to nearly enough on this site).
Here are links to the past three episodes:
The next episode hits the web on Monday, February 21st.
Well, actually, no. In Sequential Underground #5 we talk about printing, and in Sequential Underground #6 we talk about trying to make money online. So I lied.
But imagine if the podcasts did print money!!! We’d have $6 so far. That’s a fine fast food dinner.
The latest podcast is live!!! Check out it out SU #4 on the AudioShocker site or over at the Comics Podcast Network.
We talk about research, covering our experiences on how we use it in our indie comics work and our opinions on its importance in the creative process.
Hey all, our latest podcast is live on the AudioShocker so check it out:
- Sequential Underground #3
Shawn, Dan, and I talk about Pittsburgh’s small press comics scene, including stores, artists, websites, and our own upcoming projects.
Okay, so we didn’t really say much about the new podcast… and we definitely didn’t post a link to it here on the blog. BUT I’M RECTIFYING THAT RIGHT NOW!
Here’s Sequential Underground #1, a new podcast with myself, Dan Greenwald, and Shawn Atkins… and hopefully, you too in the future!
And if you like what you hear, make sure you hit up the AudioShocker tomorrow for Sequential Underground #2.
The Pittsburgh Independent Comics Expo (PIX) opened it’s doors for the first time this past weekend and the Pittsburgh indie comic community, creators and fans alike, came out in force. Big thanks to Bill Boichel of Copacetic Comics and the Toonseum for organzing, promoting and generally putting on a great show.
Along with my comics Dead Love and Blue Wraith, I debuted my new project, Space Base One, which also happens to be the 24 page comic I finished for 24 Hour Comic Day in the beginning of October. Here’s the special edition cover, done by Shawn Atkins of Workshop 13.
Like most other creators set up last weekend, I had a great time, both personally and financially. I got to hang out with friends, meet other local creators and sell a lot of books.
If you couldn’t make it out this year, fear not, I do believe there will be another PIX in 2011.
In the meantime, if you’re interested in getting a copy of Space Base One, you can purchase it through PayPal. (FYI, the “Donate” button is actually a fixed price of $2.50. That’s the price of the book plus shipping.)
More Pepper Jones, Adventure Scientist comin’ atcha!!! Writer/artist Shawn Atkins and I have been hard at work on the rest of Pepper’s book-length debut and here’s some more to wet your whistle.
Our typical working process is that Shawn and I spitball ideas until we have the bare bones of a loose plot for a single adventure. Since Pepper is first and foremost his baby, I look to him to make the decisions regarding the overall direction.
I tend to be a bit more continuity and logistics oriented, so once he gives the thumbs up to a basic plot, I start asking a @#$%load of question to smooth out the action. In the case of Act II, I had a basic way that I wanted the act to start, but Shawn had some even more important beats he wanted to hit once the adventuring gets under way.
Suffice to say that this act is pretty intense. It’s got science, tension, mystery, war, and more. All in 24 digest-sized pages!
