The San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) specials continue with Episode 49.5! As with the previous show, this stuff is raw and unedited with a lot of ambient noise – but it’s a great way to sample the flavour and character of SDCC. This time around I catch up with old podcast friend and A1 creator Dave Elliott to discuss what’s new. We find out what he’s been happening since we last spoke and how things have evolved for this new incarnation of A1.
From there I chat with new podcast friend Brian Winkeler about his work on Knuckleheads for Monkeybrains Comics. We discuss his background in advertising and how that led to comic projects such as Knuckleheads and Bastard Road. Like my interview with The Three One Five (315) we caught up in the pub, so you can expect an eclectic soundtrack in the background.
Of course, as people like to complain, Comic-Con isn’t just about comics anymore – so I decided to include a few other interviews I did around the show. One of the things being plugged this year was Tru TV’s Impractical Jokers, so I chatted with stars James Murray and Brian Quinn. I also went to the Animation Under The Sea party where I spoke with Supa Pirate Booty Hunt‘s Steve Sievers and other luminaries from the world of animation.
