Wrestling your career into a headlock with Headlocked creator Michael Kingston

EThis week on the show we have Headlocked creator Michael Kingston. Headlocked is a smash hit indie comic made by professional wrestlers for wrestling fans. It's awesome to see Michael's booths at conventions because they are always constantly swarmed with fans.Here's some info on his smash hit Headlocked fromwww.headlockedcomic.com Nine years ago, I just wanted to make a cool wrestling comic. Something that was entertaining but that also showcased wrestling as an art form. As a lifelong fan of both wrestling and comics, I felt that despite the obvious parallels and crossover fanbase…no one had really done wrestling comics the right way. I created Headlocked, an HBO-style drama chronicling an aspiring wrestler’s coming of age in the wrestling business. And I pitched it to everyone in comics… and I was turned down by everyone…one dude from a major publisher straight up laughed in my face. So we just made them ourselves. I love that last line. "So we just made them ourselves". It's...

He churns out finished pages like Kirby in his prime. He tells a story on the show about how he produced a 180-page book in three months.

How to book media with celebrity psychic Laura Powers

EThis week I have another episode with somebody I met at Podcast Movement: Evolutions. This time it's with celebrity psychic Laura Powers.

Creating a publishing company with Buno Books publisher Storme Smith

EI've known about the story of Buño Books since pretty much the beginning when they had a deal with Magnetic Press, before they went off on their own to conquer the brave new world of independent publishing. So, when Storme Smith emailed to ask if I wanted to have him on my show, I jumped at the chance, and I'm so glad I did. For those of you who haven't been obsessively following this upstart company for years, here's their bio: Buñois an independent publisher founded in 2016, by Ulises Farinas and Storme Smith. We publish graphic novels and comic books by talented artists from around the world.

How to Make a World Class Virtual Convention with creator Wendy Shaner

EEarlier this year, before ANY of this COVID stuff happened, my friend Wendy Shaner put together a virtual comic book convention on Kickstarter called theNaughty Faeries Online Comic Con Experience. I had no idea what she was thinking, and I was confused for just about the whole Kickstarter, but she raised over $13,000 so I knew she was doing something right. When the world ended, she seemed like the most prescient guru of all time, because she was WAY ahead of the curve on that one. Since then I've run three conventions, but while they've been well-received they have not even come CLOSE to making me $13,000. So, I thought it would be a good idea to have Wendy on the show to talk about her experience, and then dovetail it with my experience running shows. This is likely the future, at least in the short term, so we might as well turn into the skid.
