The Bleed Episode 2.4: Reading Rat Queens With Jimmie Robinson

By Joseph Kyle Schmidt and Samuel Morse

The Bleed is a weekly podcast by Bleeding Cool contributors Joe Schmidt and Sam Morse. The podcast consists of the latest news in comics, creator interviews, and a weekly book club discussion.

Say hello to the one and only Jimmie Robinson!

Jimmie has created some great titles for Image Comics and its Shadowline imprint, including-but-not- limited-to Five Weapons, Bomb Queen (parts I-VII), and, coming February 2015, The Empty. A multi-talented artist who fully scripts all of his own work, he’s the perfect guest for the Bleed and talked at length about his career, the strong protagonists in his stories, diversity in comics, and the pick of the week.

Up next: Rat Queens, by Kurtis J. Wiebe and Roc Upchurch. The Queens have taken the world by storm as evident in Tumblr feeds and Con cosplay, so we decided to see what the fuss was all about. What do we think? Listen to the show and find out!
