I also spoke to Frank Barbiere (again; I’m sure he was tired of me by the time December ended) about his and Chris Mooneyham’s Five Ghosts. He spilled some details on their plans for the future, including the current “Lost Coastlines” storyline — pirates!

Andrew MacLean kickstarts a second helping of ‘Head Lopper’

I spoke with Andrew MacLean about his awesome “Head Lopper” comic and the Kickstarter he’s running for the second issue. You can read the interview here, and support the Kickstarter here.

Quote
"Then I will finish a six-issue Usagi miniseries, “Senso,” that takes place about 15 years in his future. Usagi is now a retainer of the Geishu Clan, as well as his son, Jotaro, and Gen the rhino. It opens on the final battle between the Geishu and Lord Hikiji, who has been the great evil in the Usagi storyline. The battle is going badly for the Geishu, but the tide slowly turns and it seems they will be victorious … then the Martians attack. The entire premise is, “What if the Martians from HG Wells’ War of the Worlds had sent a few scout ships 200 years before their invasion of Victorian England?” It may not be as historically or culturally accurate as my stories usually are, but it sure will be fun."

from my interview with Stan Sakai, where he talks about Usagi fighting Martians. USAGI FIGHTING MARTIANS. That is awesome.

Here is the first page of Senso:

Celebrating four years of Robot 6

image

It was Robot 6’s 4th anniversary/annual Comic Book Resources home page takeover this past week, and I did a few interviews for it, as well as a special Shelf Porn featuring the guys from 4-Star Studios. I also listed my favorite comics of 2012 along with several of my fellow bloggers. I wrote about a few comics and listed a whole bunch of others that I wanted to say something about, but time ran out on me. At least that’s better than I did last year, when I didn’t even contribute to the feature. 

In any event, here are the interviews I did:

These were all fun interviews to do, and I appreciate that the folks I spoke with were able to make time for me during the busy holiday season.
