With Ron Marz …
 
Following on from last week’s episode with Fabio Moon (which you can still listen to here), I’m back at the pub again to chat with one of my favourite writers Ron Marz (Silver Surfer, Green Lantern, Shinku & more) about his amazing career.
 
Ron & I talk about how he first broke in to Marvel Comics with Silver Surfer, dealing with crazed fans & death threats on Green Lantern, what he learned from his days at CrossGen, and where his career is headed these days.

Live from London Super Comic Con …
 
Following on from last week’s tribute to my good friend Herb Trimpe (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with a series of interviews recorded *live* in the inaugural Podcast Alley at the recent London Super Comic Con.
 
First up, Alex Paknadel chats about his new series Arcadia from Boom! Studios, then I ‘find’ Sam Read to discuss his work with Comix Tribe, Martin Hayes & Chris Askham come by to talk Abominable Glory, and 2000AD‘s Mike Molcher pops in to hype their podcast & other activities.
 
As if that’s not enough, I’m also joined at the pub by Hunter Gorinson & Andy Liegl from Valiant Entertainment for a post-con drink. We chat about what’s happening in their world, where readers can start exploring the Valiant universe, and how they found their trip to London.

The Orbiting Pod Episode 176

11070650_10153185399841698_2123522785_o

Hello, and welcome to Episode 176 of The Orbiting Pod!

This week, we give the devil his due, and look at the first 6 episodes of the Netflix Daredevil series, but not for too long, as we have books to talk about!

- Multiversity: Ultra Comics #1 – is the curse real, or will we curse for reading it?
- Convergence #1 – It looks like a Battle. Of many Worlds. (Wait, what do you mean “wrong event”?)
- Rebels #1 – Historically based fiction; is it worth fighting for, or does it belong in the past?
- Kaijumax #1 – The beasts are big, but is the impact?
- The Dead and The Dying #2 – Is there life left in it or does it need put to pasture?

We talk about these books and more!

Orbital in Conversation Episode 126 – Remembering My Friend, Herb Trimpe!

With Herb Trimpe & Dave Gibbons …
 
After last week’s meeting of Chip Zdarsky and The Real/Fake Geeks (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with the sad but honorable task of paying tribute to my good friend Herb Trimpe (Hulk, Shogun Warriors, G.I. Joe & so much more) who sadly passed away on Monday, April 13 2015.
 
It gets a bit emotional (and I’ve chosen not to edit that) as I share my knowledge of Herb’s work growing up, what it was like when we first met, and some of my memories of him since then. I also present the panel Herb & I did together at Malta Comic Con with Dave Gibbons in 2012.
