The very funny crew of Half Hour Wasted podcast graciously extended me an invitation for me to join them for another recording. Of course, I never pass up on an opportunity for me to gab… HHW joins me on a pizza run and talk more about Ursula Wilde free comic book day issue.
I would highly suggest trying out HHW episode 50, still one of my favorite episode ever. While on their website, you can also check out Legion of Dudes podcast, a ensemble of comic enthusiasts who have done an in-depth multi-episode discussion of Watchmen graphic novel.
When your friend knows somebody that knows somebody that is somebody that works at the newspaper… and he drops them story lead… and the paper approaches you for a Sunday paper human interest story… what do you think you’ll say? Well, I’d say the idea of getting interviewed by the local newspaper is TOTALLY GENIUS!!! Oh, how little did I know that the Longview News Journal writer Glen Evans would use the word in the actual word in the title.
So as wonderful as the article was with 2 pages chock full of words and images, that wonderful choice of words for the title just armed my dear friends with enough ammo to give me continual grief for the next decade.
All jokes aside, this was a tremendous honor and helped finally validate my comic art interest with my parents. Thank you ShawnO for hooking me up!Update [04/03/2007]: The online version of the article has been archived on Longview News Journal website and is now only available to registered, paid subscribers. If you’re interested in reading the article (along with the online version’s missing images from the printed version), just send me an e-mail for the PDF copy.
Well, my first ever interview in this ever-growing digital world of podcasts! The awesome padres Brad Milyo and Frank Rincon that I met via Comic Geek Speak forum started a podcast of their own called Half Hour Wasted.
Unfortunately, due to some insidious plan on Frank’s part, I didn’t get to be the first ever comic book creator to be interview on HHW, as was promised to me by Frank. To make matters worse, the recording of Brad and me punkin’ Frank during the show was lost to an unfortunate (too convenient for Frank if you ask me!) technical glitch. The only salvaging part was that the first interview was with Erica Hesse artist and co-creator of "The Key" and a super-kewl kat from Jersey. Good times would be had for the next hour or so as they kindly extended 2 episodes for me to join them.
