A Life, Writing – An Interview with Mark Waid, Part 2

EWelcome back to our two-episode special of our conversation with Mark Waid, one of the greatest visionaries in comic book history. It was a pleasure digging in deep to what makes this man tick. Here in episode two, we go even deeper. Hang on, dear listeners. The cosmic rays are coming fast and furious now. The ship is heating up. Might as well sit back and relax. There's no stopping it now and there's no telling where we'll end up. http://BlastoffComics.com

A Life, Writing – An Interview with Mark Waid, Part 1

EThere are some guests who need very little introduction. Some who have affected our industry in so many ways that it would require a dedicated program just to list their achievements. Mark Waid is that guest. He's written nearly every comic-book character at nearly every comic-book company (quite a few that he founded himself). He's become an expert at every level of publishing. Owner, CEO, CCO, Editor-in-Chief, Digital Pioneer. And of course, a relentless wordsmith, creating original characters and transforming long existing ones with brave and bold strokes. Over thirty years of shaping and reshaping so many of the heroes and villains whose adventures we long to daydream about. He builds the ship. He fills it with a crew. And then he pilots it and makes sure we all have a seat right up front. He's a quiet man who can also wield a big stick. A man with strong opinions. Which means, a man with as many enemies as friends. He does not back down, he does not cower, he does not lie. He s...

Chiefly Creative - An Interview with Chris Ryall

EWe’re honored to welcome one of the most talented and influential publishers in the comic book arena. Chris Ryall is the CCO of IDW Publishing, one of the fourth largest publishers of comic book content in America. He leads as Creative Officer of a company that’s had almost 100 of their titles on the NY Times Bestseller list and whose comic titles have won every award from Harvey to Eagle to Eisner. A handful of which, he wrote and developed himself. They’re a leader in licensed content, building the comic brands of GI Joe, My Little Pony, Transformers, Doctor Who, Star Trek, Ghostbusters, Godzilla, Judge Dredd and even the revitalized Disney characters we all love so much. http://BlastoffComics.com

Chatting With Thundercat

EThundercat has been breaking ground in the music industry since he was a teenager. He had his first hit song at the age of 15, and just a year later before he could vote or get a legal drink, he became one of the original members of Suicidal Tendencies, playing bass in a band that came to define the ‘90s’ West Coast punk-rock sound. That’s right, folks. Joining us today is none other than Stephen Bruner, also known as Thundercat. During the middle of the last decade, Bruner linked up with Shafiq Husayn and Sa-Ra, and became a permanent fixture at the group’s Silver Lake studio that briefly served as the Los Alamos of the L.A. underground music scene. Everyone from Ty Dollasign to Erykah Badu passed through this sprawling nerve center. He joined Badu in her live band and New Amerykah studio sessions. And then in 2011, Bruner joined forces with Flying Lotus, and his musical passion exploded. That year, he released his first solo project, The Golden Age of Apocalypse, which positio...
