The Bleed 2.28: Reading Strangers In Paradise With Monica Gallagher

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.

Monica Gallagher stops by the Bleed for a brand new episode. On the docket: realistic possibilities of lakeside werewolf attacks, first jobs, bar-hosted micro-cons, and her new Kickstarter campaign for webcomic Bonnie N. Collide—Nine to Five! We also discuss the collected release of her Oni Press title, Part-Time Princesses!

Gallagher has chosen the slice-of-life-turned-crime-epic from Terry MooreStrangers in Paradise! Specifically, we’re reading Volume 2 but it was so damn good that Joe had to go back and read the first collection just to be sure that the bat-shit crazy turn in this story is truly unheralded (it is).

Join us next time when Joe reunites with his star-crossed SDCC Star Wars love Jeremy Konrad to discuss the new Marvel series, Star Wars and Darth Vader by Jason Aaron & John Cassady and Kieron Gillen & Salvador Larocca, respectively.
