Funny Book Splatter 033: Mike Garley
This week my guest is Mike Garley, the writer of Samurai Slasher and The Kill Screen. The former is an homage to old school slasher movies featuring a samurai, while the latter is set in a world where computer viruses can infect mankind. There’s currently a Kickstarter campaign to fund the print run of a new 70 page Kill Screen collection called Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost. At the time of this recording, the campaign has already met its funding goal and is marching towards some stretch goals. And yes, I backed the campaign.
Mike has also recently released a small print run of 666 copies of a new Samurai Slasher one-shot called Late Fees. There will be a Kickstarter campaign for a new Slasher series coming soon.
Quick update for you on some past guest activity. The Colder Omnibus mentioned in the episode with writer Paul Tobin will be released next week on September 27th. I cannot recommend that series enough.
Also, as a reminder, I’ll be at New York Comic Con in a few weeks. I’m planning on doing some interviews from the show floor and will probably drop these as smaller, bonus episodes sometime in October. If you’re going to be at the show, please let me know and we can chat.

Lastly, if you're a horror comics creator, I want to hear from you! Whether you're a first time writer launching a Kickstarter campaign or an established artist who has been working in the industry for years, you'd be a welcome guest on the show. Reach out to me via email or on Twitter.
