Funny Book Splatter 036: NYCC Special
Well folks, my guest this week was supposed to be writer David Gallaher. We had a fantastic chat about his comic, High Moon, a supernatural western starring a werewolf. Unfortunately, when I went to edit the interview, half of the audio was crazy corrupted. This is really unfortunate, because David is a great guy and we had a super fun chat about his book. The first volume of High Moon is called Bullet Holes and Bite Marks and it debuts on October 17th. It features amazing artwork by Steve Ellis, who draws monsters like no other. High Moon is a trilogy and the second volume is set for release in May 2018.
So, what am I to do without a guest this week? Well, I did attend New York Comic Con last week and I did a few interviews from the show floor. I was planning on dropping these as smaller bonus episodes throughout the next couple weeks, but instead, I’m putting them all in here. There are three total.
First is Dave Scheidt and Scoot McMahon, the creators of a new all ages horror comic called Wrapped Up from Lion Forge Comics. The first issue came out this week and it’s really fun. It follows a mummy named Milo as he gets into all kinds of spooky misadventures. If you want a peek at the comic, there will be a special free issue available for Halloween ComicFest at the end of the month at participating comic shops.
The second interview is with writers Evan Dorkin and Sarah Dyer. Their book, Calla Cthulhu is a coming-of-age adventure story currently available from Dark Horse Comics.
The third and final interview is with Jamie Madrox and Monoxide, otherwise known as Twiztid. They were on hand as they’re starring in a new one-shot comic called Haunted High-Ons from Source Point Press. The book is written by Dirk Manning and illustrated by Marianna Pescosta and Alessandro De Fornasari. It debuted at the show and is currently available at the Twiztid Shop and the Source Point Press site.
