Speaking of Podcasts-

Miguel Rodrigues of Indie Comics News. has done a nice interview with me here. I like Mike's website, so give it a look - he's got very nice interviews of some great comic book creators, does some stuff for the Bullpen Bulletins podcast and has started doing a Comic Book Noise!

Confessions of a Podcast addict-

I am ready to admit it - I am completely addicted to podcasts about comic books - I started with Fanboyradio and I've plowed through nearly 200 episodes of Scott Hinze and Oliver Tull's great fanboy radio podcasts and now I'm addicted to Alter Ego Comiccast, as well as Ifanboy, and I'm on the hunt for others - anyone got any ones I should check out?

My suspicion about Bagpipes used at funerals is that folks are litteraly trying to raise the dead with all that horrific racket.

nice, friendly interview on a really neat website-

I did a very nice and pleasant interview for the Marvel Gazette, it was a lot of fun and can be found at
the Marvel Gazette.
And you're reading this ten or more days after this post, the interview can be found at: the Marvel Gazette Interviews

I read a few of the other folks that were interviewed and loved what they said - Fred Hembeck's interview was a gas-

Weapon Countdown at 5 days!

What ho! Well met - another busy, busy day. I should stop bothering to say things are nutty around here - I've been trying to get as much done as quickly as possible with as good a quality as I expect of myself, but I'm not going to get a good night's rest until August. The Weapon comes out in less than a week and continues to be serialized online at Drunk duck, Fantastic Five comes out in about 3 weeks, Marvel Adventuers Iron Man #2 comes out on the same day as the first issue of the Weapon and my new secret project comes out in August (always gotta have a secret project - and I'm absolutely over the moon on this one!)
I think it works out to three books a month for the next three months - 22 pages pencilled, 66 inked! whew!
Someone go out and see Fantastic Four 2 for me and tell me what they thought - I'm going to have to catch this one on video, I'm really too busy to do anything else but work and work and work...
Above is a color version of The Weapon #1, page 4! Check out early snippets of the book with Fred's great words and Paul's masterful colors at www.drunkduck.com/the Weapon
