Learn such things as:

  • How can you write a story inspired by a worldwide tragedy but not have it be about that tragedy?

Men In Black The Series: Crashdown (Simping For Senpai)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Men in Black is a franchise that I don’t think will ever leave the public consciousness. Sure, we didn’t know the comic even existed when the movie came out and we were 10 years old (I’m not doing that math but the age seems right for me). And for most kids when a cartoon happens as well that’s just a goldmine waiting to happen.

Good thing Kristian Cabrera from Simping for Senpai is here to help make up for my childhood foolishness. And maybe to uncover some secret alien related government tomfoolery.

Learn such things as:

  • How much can you frontload a game?
  • Did anyone my age know Men in Black was a comic at all?
  • [Third point erased from your memory for your own protection]
  • And so much more!

You can find Kristian on Twitter @ash_bashem and his podcast on Twitter @SimpxsenpaiPod and the Simping for Senpai website.

The OZ With David Pepose

Facebooktwitterredditmail

The best thing about public domain IP is that you can do whatever you want with it. Like, oh I don’t know, taking the Wizard of Oz and making it a war story. After all, you did kind of have Dorothy coming in and killing people. That’s not exactly a nice move.

If only I knew someone who has done exactly that….. How about David Pepose? Yeah that would be good. So it’s a good thing that who you get to listen to in this episode.

And just a warning, we recorded this episode before the Kickstarter campaign for The OZ went public. And it kind of exploded a little bit. In a good way.

Learn such things as:

  • How deep can you dive into a well known property where people really only know one part of it?
  • What can you do to welcome people who missed the campaign for an earlier part of the series?
  • Who is the best blue super hero ever created of all time?
  • And so much more!

You can find David on Twitter @Peposed, Instagram @Peposed, on Facebook @ David Pepose Comics, his newsletter Pep Talks, and his website DavidPepose.com. And of course check out the Kickstarter campaign for The OZ.

Band of Bards with Tom Stolinski

Facebooktwitterredditmail

First impressions are a powerful thing, especially on the internet since we’re constantly blasted with so much information that it’s really easy to see a thing flash before our eyes and never see it again.

That’s why when I saw that Band of Bards was a new comic publisher with a focus on diversity I knew I had to hurry up and ask them to be on the show before I had a brain fart and forgot. Thankfully, Tim Stolinski was able to come on and let us know a bit about the company and their current Kickstarter campaign for Final Gamble.

Learn such things as:

  • How can you stand out as a new small publisher?
  • How do you convince people to let you publish their stories when you don’t have a real track record?
  • How many people will say I’m phoning this in by using the same question word 3 times?
  • And so much more!

The Atonement Bell with Jim Ousley

Facebooktwitterredditmail

How many times can I say that I’m a sucker for people promoting their own stuff? The Kickstarter Hustle is real folks and I respect the Hell out of it.

That’s why we have Jim Ousley back on the show to talk about his newest project The Atonement Bell.

Learn such things as:

  • Does Chris check simple facts before recording with his guests?
  • How tempting is it to call an artist you’ve worked with a lot before instead of the one you’re working with now?
  • How cool can you get with Kickstarter rewards?
  • And so much more!

The Atonement Bell as a project can be found on Twitter @AtonementBell and of course on The Atonement Bell’s Kickerstarter page.  Jim Ousley can be found on Twitter @JimOusley and Instagram @radio_jimbo.

X-Men Legends with Kevin Newburn

Facebooktwitterredditmail

X-Men. It’s the reason I started this podcast. It’s the comic series that people ask me about the most for coming on the show. And they just never disappoint because there are about a billion different reasons why people have gotten into them and why they love them. So what’s wrong with another look?

If you ask Kevin Newburn, nothing at all. Which is great because that would have made for a really awkward episode if he didn’t think that these mutants were worth another look.

Learn such things as:

  • What series of games have people asked me about the most?
  • How does this game perfectly represent that working together as a team is better than going at it alone?
  • Did anyone actually get excited about these X-Men Legends comics?
  • And so much more!

Spider-Man 2 The Sinister Six with David Gallaher

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Well it’s been a nice run of bonus episodes, way more than I ever intended to run back to back to…. well you get the idea. So to get back to the regular episodes I feel like it’s best to go with on of my first loves, our friendly neighborhood wall crawler Spider-Man.

Good thing today’s guest David Gallaher likes Spider-Man too because otherwise this could have gotten weird. Not that it didn’t anyway but at least it’s the kind of weird that we’ve gotten used to on this show.

Learn such things as:

  • DID YOU KNOW THAT PETER PARKER IS SPIDER-MAN!?
  • What major villains aren’t in this game?
  • Is Spider-Man the character I’ve looked at the most on this show so far?

Rainbow Bridge with Steve Foxe and Steve Orlando

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Pets are better than people. Nobody should be shocked to hear that from me. I make it no secret that I love my cats more than basically any human who could ever exist. And that when I’ve lost pets in the past it’s just wrecked me.

So on that happy note listen to Steve Orlando and Steve Foxe come on the show to talk about Rainbow Bridge, the story of a boy’s last adventure with his dog. And if that doesn’t hit you right in the feels then

This Episode is brought to you in part by AfterShock Comics since they are publishing the book and everything.

Rise of the Kung Fu Dragon Master Vol 2 with Chris Mancini and Fernando Pinto

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Kickstarter is the bane of my existence because so many cool things are rolling through there. It’s a good problem to have I guess.

But Chris Mancini and Fernando Pinto, those two are enablers. Why do they have to be making such a cool sounding comic? Why do they have to be good people on top of that? Why do they make it so easy for me to give them my money?

This Episode is brought to you in part by White Cat Entertainment, both because they created this comic and because they’re just a cool company anyway.

Learn such things as:

  • How do you keep the partnership going when you’ve found a good creative partner?
  • What happens when people missed the Kickstarter for Part 1 of a series?
  • Early Bird vs Limited Release on Patreon
  • And so much more!

The world just can’t get enough zombies. They’re everywhere. So let’s throw in dating at the same time. Let’s be real here, I’m not sure which is scarier.

Good thing we have Steve Urena here to help sort this stuff out. Listen in as we talk about his newest Kickstarter comic Zombie Date Night, which as of the publishing of this episode is fully funded and has just under 2 weeks left in the campaign for you to get in on the fun.
