For those of you who have missed the sound of my rich, mildly accented voice in the four months since the last installment of Radio ISB, it might be of interest to find out that I was interviewed over the weekend by the Comic Review Weekly Podcast.
So in lieu of actual content today, why not go give that a download and listen to me ramble on for about twenty minutes? The guys from the podcast describe it like this…
“Chris talks about his writing career, comics, and his perpetual 1 degree of separation between him and Mike Nelson.”
…and while that’s completely accurate, I’d advise you to listen carefully for:
1) My utter cluelessness when the idea of having a popular blog is brought up.
2) The secret origin of both The Week in Ink and The Monday Meme (Surprise! It involves Dungeons and Dragons).
And, in a bizarre moment,
3) Me totally spacing out for a few seconds while talking about my father.
It’s the first time I’ve ever been interviewed, and I think that shows in the way that I talk a lot whenever the opportunity presents itself, but it was fun.
In other news, the ISB Convention Special is now printed up and ready to go, and three out of four Punishers agree, Solmon Stone Chapter 9 is totally rad.
The fourth Punisher, it seems, was actually a Dalek.
Anyway, fictional endorsements aside, I thought that some of you might be curious as to what the special actually looks like, and since I’ve already posted the art for the front cover, tonight, I thought I’d mention the back, which, aside from a black-and-white version of the new ISB Logo (as featured on all of our fine merchandise) is blank.
Now, that might seem like an awful waste of paper that could be used to show off someone getting a boot to the chops, but it actually serves a purpose. If you manage to get out to Charlotte this weekend to grab one, just say the word and I’ll be more than happy to deface it with a poorly-drawn caricature of your favorite character!
Swing by and grab one, won’t you?
