New We Talk Comics Episodes Drop and RobCon Almost Here!

Back in March of last year Chris Beck of We Talk Comics Podcasts contacted me about joining him and We Talk's founder Mo Kristiansen to do an episode focusing on Pre-Marvel Universe comic book movies. I first appeared on the We Talk Comic Podcast way back in the summer of 2015 promoting "Adventures in Pulp" and it was an absolute blast. Chris and Keith Callbeck hosted that episode and talking to them was like hanging out with my friends at the local comic shop. Keith has since moved on and regular host Brett Monro was ill, so Chris invited me to fill in at the 11th hour (proving one Brett is most definitely NOT as good as another). The show was a lot of fun. It was a different vibe contributing to an ongoing conversation as opposed to a straight up interview so I felt a little shaky. My fear was that I spent a little too much time saying "I agree" or "I really liked this or hated that" without going into specifics. I guess I got lucky because some technical issues cropped up and the whole show had to be scrapped. After almost a year of scheduling conflicts I finally got to join Chris and Mo for a re-recording along with Brett and even Keith who returned as a special guest. Again, it was an absolute blast and we managed to get two episodes out of it! The first episode focuses of the "Best Comic Book Movies Before the Marvel Universe" and you can hear it here and the second episode focuses of the "Worst Comic Book Movies Before the Marvel Universe" and you can hear it here. Since then I even did my first review for their "WeView" reviews. I selected the comic book prequel to the cult classic short story and film: Bubba Ho-Tep. You can read it here. You can also check out my first appearance here and I highly recommend trying some of their other past episodes.  They are pretty great.

I'm not sure if I will be a guest at RobCon again this summer. However my partner on the upcoming comic "The Outer Worlds," Ivan Castillo of Conquest Art Designs, will have some fantastic stuff available and even a few pages to preview of our sci-fi comic book mini-series. If the stars really align we *might* even have a printed copy of the book itself.

If I make it, it will be my sixith time around for the ever growing convention and appears it will be the best yet. If you are in Northeast Tennessee or Southwest Virginia July 27 through 29, I highly recommend stopping in. Robert Pilk of Mountain Empire Comics has really been stepping it up the last couple of years. It's a fantastic show, with panels, costume contests, writers, artists, and lots of vendors. The last couple of years have been an absolute blast and it looks like this year will be even better in its new venue of MeadowView Convention Center in Kingsport, TN.

Just a reminder, my story story "Looking for Redemption with Blind Eyes" featuring the character Stingray from Darby Pop's "Indestructible" closes out the "Women of Darby Pop" anthology and you can still get it and my four "Adventures In Pulp" short stories as downloads at Comixology here.  "Adventures in Pulp" was named "Digital Comic of the Year" by Pipedream comics for 2015 and all digital profits for go to the artist.
