Baltimore's faced a severe shortage of trash collectors acting public works director Matthew Bark says, it's not easy to find replacements. It is just a hard dirty job. It is quite common for someone to walk off the job within a day or two because they just don't realize. How hard the work is there is less garbage these days at vacant office buildings and Hotels Guard says the commercial trash trucks that typically empty those dumpsters are not easily reassigned to residential neighborhoods.

Some Dinosaurs Probably Nested in Arctic
"Those vicious predatory dinosaurs that tended to be fairly small as six to nine ten feet. Long snout to tail there. Certainly in the Jurassic. Park movies the things that terrorize people Anthony Fiorello a paleontologist at southern Methodist University in Dallas Texas for more than two decades. Now, Fiorello has been digging a dinosaur fossils, hundreds of miles north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska. So one of the fundamental questions about dinosaurs in Alaska. In the ancient Arctic is, did they live there all year round did they migrate? How did they get their a recent discovery sheds light on those questions this fossil that's the subject study is a baby dinosaur, the baby predatory dinosaur, and it is a baby. It's not just juvenile and given the size estimate of this thing. This probably was not far from where the nesting ground was. So this is the first physical proof. Alley some dinosaurs nested in the ancient Arctic some of the first Arctic dinosaur remains ever found were discovered back in the nineteen sixties in Svalbard, an archipelago north of mainland Norway. Since then researchers have theorized, the dinosaurs must have migrated to avoid deeply cold winters but Fiorello says this new discovery disproves that idea for you know the classic stereotype for dinosaurs is that had been. that they were living in sub tropical environments oftentimes, somewhat swampy if you look at various artwork over generations, that was quite often how these dinosaurs were reconstructed. In reality the climate north of Alaska's Brooks range seventy million years ago was similar to what we might see today in Portland, Oregon or Calgary Alberta. Certainly a place where. Things were cooler. Or who were capable of being cool at times but certainly warmer than the the Arctic today, the fossil find is a piece of jawbone with a tooth from Dromaeosaur Fiorello and colleagues unearthed it along the banks of the call. They'll river not too far from the Arctic Ocean. The bone is the first non dental evidence of that species in the far north the researchers report their discovery in the journal plus one. Of course questions remain. How did they do what they did because even with the warmer temperatures at the latitude, the thieves dinosaurs were living, which is at least seventy degrees north if not even farther nor. Do they endure long periods of light and dark, and that's where the research will go next for now Fiorello says the new discovery proves that these giant reptiles were well adapted to the highly seasonal environments of the late Cretaceous that we still experience today in the Arctic.

Why Tom Seaver Is The Greatest Met Ever
"People perhaps too young to have seen it and to have lived through it. How would you put into words what Tom Seaver meant to baseball and particularly in New York in the late sixties and the seventies? Well. He's the greatest met ever and there is not a close second. He's for me one of the ten greatest pitchers of all time when you look at his wins, his era and his strikeouts, the only pitcher in history that can match those numbers is Walter Johnson whose regularly considered the greatest. Of all time top seaver struck out ten batters in a row that is still a major league record and they were the last ten hitters of the game showing how strong he was at the end Greenie I was twelve years old when he pitched the mets to the world championship in nineteen, sixty nine it was absolutely breathtaking to watch a pitcher who threw that hard with that kind of precision and the way he threw that back news to drag against the ground. He was so big and he was so strong. He was Tom Terrific in every way he was he was like a superhero in my youth. I grew up in New York and I wasn't met Fan, but you couldn't not not only admire him but you're almost all of him. He became almost mythical figure you can. We talk about that a little bit not not just how great pitcher he was the numbers tell you that story but just what he meant in an even larger sense than that, how would you put that into words? Well he was so much a celebrity in New York because he was so smart he was. So worldly, he did the New York Times Crossword puzzle every day and apparently nobody did it better than he did and he never took himself too seriously Dick Schaap told this great story one night that Dick arranged a party out with a bunch of people, a bunch of writers and a bunch of celebrities. And among the celebrities were Muhammad, Ali and Tom Seaver and through the night went along alley. Brilliant Mad. But not a great baseball fan whispered to Tom seaver which newspaper do you work for Anti seaver like burst out in laughter that's how great he was at understanding his place and everything he said that what he retired, he wanted to become an artist, but he wasn't good enough to be an artist. But boy was he a great great baseball player who captured a town at the perfect
737 MAX update: The MAX gets its first order of 2020
"Brought down. This is our 737. Max. Update for this particular episode Canada in its I want to concurrent quest to recertified aircraft transport Canada will be taking the seventh time Amax on a test flight of their own. So the FAA formerly would. Do Certification, and then let Canada Yeah. It's fine. The planes good to go. We'll. We've certified it in Canada would say okay, that's good enough for us. This time around Canada wants to fly themselves so that supposed to happen this week. So by the time, the podcast comes out on Friday that will likely have already occurred, but you can you can search shop. We don't know for sure but it will likely be the seven three, seven, Max Seven. Test Craft seven two, zero, one S. so we'll put link in the show notes to that flight if it does happen by the time. The podcast comes out to. The Max also got its first order of twenty twenty. Spend all times. It's the last order was. The British Airways Order Alley. Ear Show Way Back? Yes. So the first symptoms of Max Order Twenty twenty goes to enter air and we're not talking about a large number it's two plus options for two right. So not a huge vote of confidence but vote of confidence nonetheless. Interesting to say the least I would not. If I were a smaller line like enter, I would not be signing agreements to purchase new aircraft when you probably have. Vast choice of. Used grounded aircraft globally right now but hey, maybe they got a good deal. One would assume that the delay got was. Better than good. I hope. So I don't know what airline right now is a in the position to purchase new aircraft and be. Sees the need to. When you're just talking about two and potentially four. It was very very unclear to me why they would be purchasing the aircraft at this point. Maybe, there was some type of financing to be had or something like that. Bigger deal. Boeing has a large number of maxis sitting on the ground for customers that don't exist anymore, and for customers that don't want anymore to top I guess would be Jet Airways. So those aircraft have gotta go somewhere at some point. So Boeing probably just cut them a very substantially good deal. Yeah. Yeah exactly. One of the interesting things about this order was the nomenclature the Boeing uses to describe. The purchase. And there was a a bit made about this. You know when the when the press release came out announcing this order they refer to the aircraft. Now is the seven, three, seven, Dash Eight. Only in the headline, right which was. Interesting because they use Max everywhere else. They used it five times otherwise throughout out the press release both Boeing and enter air interchangeably. So it wasn't just one or the other the only place left out was the headline. So I, disagree with anyone saying that they have dropped the Max branding. Oh. Isn't the case yet? No I they I certainly haven't dropped the. Max Branding but I thought it was interesting that it was included in the headline and not just noted in the in the piece. I wish we could kind of settle this once and for all and uncertainly you would hire not going to be able to but I'm just I thought we had all gone and said you know this is just This is still the Max moving on and but maybe that's not the case if they're gonNA rename it. I wish they would do it sooner rather than later because we've got a lot of database entries to make up if that's the case. So it it would have been so much easier from the beginning we had just all decided to call it the seven, three, seven, Dash, eight, seven, three, seven, Dash, nine in the Max could have been some sort of branding. Exercise I don't think they'll do it I don't think they'll change. That would be admitting defeat admitting that the aircraft is so broken that you have to rename it and all of their rhetoric and press materials so far has been this is a great aircraft in will be a great aircraft. So why change the name? If you think that yeah, I, I agree with you I agree I don't think they'll D at. The end of discussion. No but I don't think they'll change but I'm saying you know if airlines push to change it will what do you do that I mean when you've got, you've got a group of. It's not Max to us. It's the you know the seven, three, seven, Dash Eight, and remember we we already saw this happen feels like an eternity go but several months ago, Ryan, one of Ryanair's newest seventy Max's came out of the factory was painted not with seven, three, seven, Max Eight, seven, seven, three, seven, Dash Eight, whatever the variant of their super high capacity Yeah, right. But it did not say Max on the nose. Setting aside I think it's still kind of bonkers. They'RE GONNA fit two hundred people. On on seven, three seven but that's It's almost like it's not natural in shouldn't happen.
We All Play A Role with Daniel Snyder
"Daniel you introduce yourself morning do I in. Yeah I'm Daniel Snyder storm coming out of just outside Vancouver British Columbia Canada, a project in pure coordinator with our action table here in Langley, that is responding to the ongoing overdose crisis. So in British Columbia redeclared a public health emergency just over four years ago in response to the rising and alarming number of fatal overdoses in the province really dramatic spike in my own journey through opioid addiction I was basically addicted to heroin. For fifteen years and realizing learning about this crisis that was ongoing. I realized I really had an opportunity to play some role in sharing my story in how I was impacted by addiction and and how perhaps our current approaches kearns social attitudes towards drug use is not helping a lot of people. So let's jump in and just talk about that. Well, let's start with your story and then how that manifests itself and then how. You want to change that view. It sounds like, yeah. So I don't fit into a typical narrative and when his narrative I I mainly framing addiction around the way it's presented at large to to us in society. So for a Lotta people who aren't directly impacted, their perception is formed they what they see in the media and. The media has a strong tendency of focusing on the most. Damaging and obvious of cases. So we're talking about. While the downtown Vancouver is the perfect example. It's it's essentially world famous for all the wrong reasons in terms of drug use open drug use homelessness, and in it was inevitable that if you look at a newspaper or watch a leading story on on this overdose crisis, you're gonNA see back alleys and injection drug use in the perception might be that that's precisely what addiction looks like and I I was never homeless. I was never out of work hours maintain to maintain employment, and if you'd walk asked me. During the years I was inactive addiction, you wouldn't have had one of those stereotypical thoughts about me that perhaps many of us are guilty of insensitive. Look there goes drug addict and I spent. Most of my years in working really really hard at trying to hide it, right keep it a secret not allow people to find out what was really going on with me and what was underneath that or what the reasons were for. That are props complex and nuanced and heart of my own story but also part of the larger story of our our society and our attitudes towards people who use substances. Right. I, think a lot of people their addiction is hidden. It's not seeing they need help they need. Support. But because of the stigma around addiction, they can't reach out I mean they don't WanNa reach out or it's it's more difficult to reach out because of the consequences of reaching out hundred percent addiction is one of those things that we reduce people to these one word labels. Constantly, we put Phil Addict Label on people maybe it's friends and family I mean we're not doing this with the intention of hurting them by has a bizarre side effect of reducing them to just a set of behaviors without really considering. What's going on underneath the surface? What's the reason that this person is struggling with addiction? We just want to focus in on the outward behaviors and The world we've been that I grew up in and that's been ongoing since even before I was born is this one in which we have for the most part said drugs are bad and we got an Iraqi drugs we gotta radical them completely free society and the DA in the drug war and we gotta stop people from using them and I think we've clearly missed the point year. It's pretty evident that that drug war has failed and what we really need to be looking to do is mitigate the harms caused by by substances nursery we're not going to get rid of them will always. Be Choosing use substances and so our our efforts should be focused on reducing the harm both to the user and to to the society around them.

Through the years, I've made a lot of bad decisions and mistakes when it comes to money. Probably about five or six years ago I had a really bad episode and I got myself into a lot of guts. and. I'm still digging out of it and. Basically. I know the things I need I should be doing I need to be doing to get out of that I. still have problems with the with my fire polar where impulsive. That makes it hard sometimes but are digging. Taking your medication. I not on anything at the moment. I'm kind of coming off of something describes something new. Okay. Can you working with the psychiatrists right now? Yeah I have to find a new one because my insurance just said, they're not going to cover any more So so you got it bipolar one diagnosis and they're saying they're not gonNA cover anymore. They're not gonNA cover the people were saying okay. Hi somebody new. So that's number one number two. Do you have somebody in your life that helps you be accountable? My boyfriend helps them my mother But I? I am single. I live alone. And I'm asking you. I'm asking you like a boyfriend in a mom. Those are often not great at they're good cheerleaders and they're good neighbours. They're not great accountability Partners D of somebody that you trust that would hold your debit card for you. Decide you have cash. Here's what I'm getting and you've got to set up some boundaries in your life and barriers that make it very challenging for you when you're getting a manic state to do something that you're GonNa have to live with for two three, five, six, seven years. That's what I'm getting. What I'm wanting to know what we need to do. So you need to find somebody probably not a boyfriend are you in a church? and not at the moment. Yeah you've got to find whether it's a church and a pastor whether it is a a bipolar group in your community that's got somebody that y'all can meet with regularly maybe it is your mom but somebody in your life that you can sit down and say, I've got these Eileen this way when I'm having a manic state aniline this way when I'm in a super-low state and I need to set up some guardrails for myself but all this starts quite honestly Kisha you gotta you gotTa Take Your Medication and Vokes with bipolar one are notorious for getting in there and feeling better feeling a bit leveled out and then they quit and think everything's all good and then they.

"Chats. I brought South and today I have a really special guest. I Have Paul good enough. Did I say that right Paul? You did perfect excellent. Paul introduce yourself to the audience. Tell who you are. Tell them what you do shoe. Well actually work across court a number of things so he can get little bit confusing. But I'll try and be as clear as possible so I run a web studio so love work in Games and a web projects outside of that I would use for. Td Film Comics Books. Radio GAGS committee Ready Principally that might might love is comics. That's where my passion is. If people could see the video that I'm looking at right now I know we're doing this audio only but icing quite a collection of comics and toys behind. You wonder why People Paul but you say that you think you see quiet collection this is. This is just the on show stuff. I'll go twenty thousand comex. Oh and many many thousand Toyota. Yeah this is. This is just the tip of the iceberg. I went through a period where we were living in Minneapolis. I was able to be full on in my collecting and I started collecting toys again and it got really out of control then. We opened up a retail store. And I ran out of space and I started having to sell stuff off and now I have a sliver of my toy collection and a sliver of my comic collection yet. It's still a disgusting amount because I love both of them so much and now with owning a podcast network I interview you know creators all the time people are always giving me things like Oh God I mean I love it but oh my God. Where's IT GONNA go yet by? You have go. I've specifically I mean you can see. Oc The listeners. Com are specific. Go over that side of the room one in higher bookshelf for things. I've been given by my friends and colleagues in the industrial projects. People to look how just things the need to Gladdened consider it because I got lots of friends who sent me. That stuff goes told them or read death things they clearly. I think to so so. It's so Paul. One of the ways that we got in contact each other is You worked on core and I know we've talked about core on this show before but you had a segment in there is you. British was something that was a big influence on you when you're younger kind of yes not a certain as a younger kid. Yeah absolutely says kind of Saturday morning. You go down to the local sweetshop news agent and you get the issue and it had like a little moment in. Time is very very Endeavour being my brain with Saturday morning in sweets sure whereas in terms of my I guess my passion for comic collecting in storytelling was will Hersi for two thousand ad. Guy And you know. Marvin superheroes are loved connected storytelling so a reminder career do quite love of comedy in work for young ordinances is in terms of my the things like reading. It tends to be a bit more expensive. I'm with you Over here it was cracked in mad magazine when I was a kid and civic memories of we go to the seven eleven which was our sweetshop. We'd go to seven eleven and I would pick up like my dad would always let me get a couple of comic books. And if there was a new craft renew mad we'd get it and Yeah that was my my thing and as I got older it became more about the comics and then it became more about the indy. Interesting comics. Zine that I got more into so I understand I definitely understand so your segment in core you did. We're not going to dwell on this. I just wanted to touch on it here. you did deadly Headley. Is this a character that you had an affinity for or was it? Hey you gotta signed. It went great. I'm going to do the vampire detective where it was really lucky. Actually so written a few things for show can show acclaimed ideas and just personal reading sense. I've always been a big Fan of detectives in that one way. You can lead audience down a certain path. Pull the rug out from under the so on Shit Winstons. Keith just emailed me and said hey go if you carry to say. We're thinking of deadly Headley. That was an incredible good. Show you that there. Thank you so In obey will. It was peeled log. If I could have chosen. It would be exactly the Ghardaia chasing anyway. Oh that's perfect so yeah I won't go into it but I will put a link in the show so people can check out core because if having kids it's fantastic even without I mean I have kids but even as an adult reading it. I had fun reading these. I was like yeah I I would definitely buy this for for nieces nephews kids and it's really fantastic. It's a lot of fun and it tweaked that mad magazine. Crack magazine thing in. May So very good. So you've got other projects going out. What if you currently got going well? Life is currently very very complex. So I'm working Onto big projects outside of the comments work one of which is called Camerin which is a TV show. That will create an concede by myself and genuine Gary Kurtz Richard Bazeley and Gary was the former produce own star wills and Dot Crystal and stories back in a number of other. Big Seminal. Sifi pieces found Richard Basically Was a one of the directors animation supervises directors at Disney. So the three of us go together and come up with this quite expansive and highly budget TV series. Cu Chi Merrin. The is being Against my my always. My pet project is being saying behind with things push themselves in front of that and what? We've been fortunate enough to to happen now as we Around the Hollywood kinda seem a little bit coming back. Some deals would be made then. Subsequently didn't happen is now we've got a lot of interest again We call cells exact producer. We got some money behind the project which is great and I can't speak too much about the people involved but the the show runners while known for doing similar things and it is. It's she's getting the traction. We've been off to issue a day. Take a bit of a pause She Gary passed away When he paused rich deny have to think very carefully about what we're going to do if it because what turned out to be Kerry's deathbed he will work projects together in. It was the one the only one he mentioned on his deathbed and said to me. Please make sure you do a good job and cameron and now that you know that sat with me to give the guest list is a little bit of a background. The ideas it's is set in a possible future. But it's not a post apocalyptic story because is being done to death is a pre apocalyptic story so if for example you knew the apocalypse was just around the corner. If you knew there was not enough food money will safety go round. Who WOULD YOU BAY in a? Would you be looking to make a small community with people who you can live and work with together which trying to gather everything you could feel south it? What would what would the world look.

"Of this. I'M GONNA buy that sort. He started picking up a lot of other things. You never even intended to A comic book conventions kind of like that. Where if you go to somebody's Online store it. Generally you're GonNa go after particular what you want and not Browse. Maybe as much sure. Sure you mentioned commissions. I know you're incredibly busy. Are you taking commissions at this point now? Right now no. I certainly will make known when I'm going to take more. I'm sitting on a bunch. That are old as it is so Definitely not taking any new ones right now. I just interviewed somebody that said the same thing they said you don't this quarantine is giving me a chance to actually realize while. I'm sitting on old commission either. Even though they're in the middle of fifty projects they went a excuse to. Kinda push aside for the moment for some people like me. Although its effect my personal life more than anything else it just be able to get out and see friends and do other things And a lot of ways of my life is pretty similar. I'm usually at home all the time. And that's where I work so in some ways it hasn't changed greatly So that but for other people it's different you know we have to office or If you're an artist like say who's on the road a lot doing convention things like that. That's they take taking a much bigger hit ya. I interviewed one. Guy For the show When we were talking about this his response was I've been in quarantine for thirteen years. We go so kind of the beast right. Yeah so imagine this is GonNa be a tough question for you because you been around the block but this is your dream. Khan who is it that you are most excited to meet I've been fortunate to meet a lot of people I would think of top my head When I was younger not that I got to know them. But Men Jess Jack Kirby Jack Kirby a few times sometimes I met Joe Cain together if you want it so well if I can meet anybody on Christina we're talking of course about people who are alive or dead so yes yeah well then you know. I mean big influences on the Alex. Toth you know outside of people have said I've already met I mean a number of artists from Europe I would love to need Like moebius that'd been fantastic I don't know mean there's there it it's Now I can't think of a lot of people off top of my head right now but well. Okay Victor Davis Day. Somebody who was thinking about recently South American artist. Jose or tease Yeah there's a lot of great artists who would have been cool to meet Yeah yeah those are all great names. Two Moebius is what I was thinking about earlier today because I was once again when I was reading your bio on one of the sites you said something about how Your work was compared. They thought you looked more like heavy metal than being in DC. And I thought yeah but it was Jim she was Jim. Shooter said that ensures that while that was when I was I was I trying to get a job Right out of school. I mean it's really not it's I you know I it depends I look at you know somebody could take that as a compliment and say hey great. I don't look like I'm from mainstream kind But you know I was just. It was my early days and it was actually a sample story that I drew that was printed at Charlton comics and I was using it as a portfolio carrying that around showing a marvel DC time because how I ended up getting my job with noble comics drawing justice machine but when I showed it to Jim Shooter. He looked at it and you know he he. He said some nice things I guess. And that's what he saying he's just It wasn't a fit for them. So you know I was. I didn't have any superheroes on. It was a story I written on my own the science fiction. And you know it was Had nothing to do with Superhero comics particularly. It mentioned her that you did a book called Van. Helsing versus Jack The ripper. Now yes is that only I could only find a French version of it. It was that ever brought out in America. No there is not an English version. There's the originally was a printed in France in French but there's also a German language version and in Italian one but no English no English. I really fast. I'd love to see your work on. That sounds really really cool do you? Hopefully hopefully that's also a bill. Rhino DOT COM is not have to correct. I think I have enough. They're wondering literally before we jumped on the phone. So I gotta ask him Yes. Do you have a Patriot that you don't okay? She don't do Patriot. What about crowd funding projects? Do you have anything like that? That you're involved in no I I. I probably will do something with this Current Project One way or another sketchbook this that whatever with the flying column but I haven't I haven't done that. Never have done okay. Well I'm putting a buccaneers so when you do or if you do make sure I know and we'll spread the word because I know that people would be interested in supporting your art is. It's like okay. It's just it's just fantastic so we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA deviate again here. Your son has a band. She does so like a lot of people sons. And I I been you. You hadn't been a CDs. Oh you should check this out. It was really cool and then at sea tweet to you said. Hey my son has a new band you gave me okay a new CD and I love it. It's fantastic so his band is lever right. And how long have they been doing their thing together for you know? It's hard for me. Remember exactly but they're like six seven years something like that Go to Lever Band Dot Com and a lot of their music is there and a little bit of their history but It's a there are sort of like I'd say some of the biggest influences the GRUNGE rock but they're they've a lot of influences. I mean there's members in the band love metal others love the Beatles and you know my son is somewhere across between all that stuff and it's very very pool and it's kind of that I want to call. He'll turn it of sound but I don't want to say. Have the stigma of what that could be to the molly they. They are called that they are called that But you know it. Yeah because of their mix of their sound and it's a it's a little bit of POPs a little bit of heartbreak. So yeah it's not necessarily a bad way to Talk about them but they've been doing very well they They play in the city quite a lot Do small tours outside of the Chicago area now and then They won The best rock entertainer at the Chicago Music Awards and in Twenty Eighteen So David they've been doing very well. I think you know. Of course I'm biased. They're great band and I love listening music. So Yeah I. I've been really enjoying it around here. So normally we make sure that are are. The show. Notes are filled up with social media for the person we're talking to but I'm GonNa make sure we put a Lincoln the show notes to his band camp Free and at the end of the show. We're GONNA do something we've never done instead of playing benny in the no goods. Which is what I usually play at the end. The last you're gonNA hear is replace entire track from Lever. So people can get a taste of what they're doing is love it and I would love to see. Exxon gets them awareness here. Well by the way that my son Mike. Reinhold is the Drummer Ryan. You hear the music. He's that guy. What's the drummer like very keeps? The beat. Dad was a drummer. So I don't pay of The drummer comes in an hour before everybody else trying to set up with the guitar player shows up employees. Have Right so bill. We're can people get in touch with you.

"I mean he's a good thing even though they take their you know they gotta take their percentage and stuff like that but the they take a small percentage and the rest goes to the creators and stuff. So I won't figure like that sharing and just spreading the word and it's so easy now like the word is spread by just clicking or liking something automatically shows up on someone else's feed and it might be something they like. Yes great for building awareness. That to me that with like what I do. That share is so valuable so yeah I like that answer. You're doing the commission's for commissions for cause are you doing commissions at all outside of that like anything to support you I May I can. If someone's interested. Yeah I'll do it. But my main focus is is basically for the Indiana Cancer. Kids and For Creative Comics again. I'm just passionate about those two are creative comics. I wouldn't be where I'm at without them so to speak So I'm internally grateful for them but yeah if someone's maybe by ousted somehow probably just slide money over or something but yeah I'm always open to do stuff And it doesn't have to be the cover either. I had someone reach out to me about the commission that she wanted like the Disney villains like sipping coffee at a coffee house. We can do that so yeah. It doesn't just have to be those things that could be something else as well. So how would they get in touch with you for this? Okay so the way to get in contact with me We'll be via my email or any of my social media as we can Where the cool kids say me? Is that the thing. Do they still say you're talking to one year old guy? I don't think I'm a cool kid so to say yes So my social media sites Which is I mostly use instagram.

Oh yeah that'd be great. I have like one person who's donating a dollar right now. patriotic is L. A. G. U. E. R. A. B. E. A. R. T. Right you know Leo. This was a lot of fun. I I really wanted to get you on after we did that panel together. I thought that was a blast so I really encourage people to check out your work. Check out the stuff that guerrillas putting out and I am really happy. Gave me that exclusive because that first book was excellent? Thank you so much about that.

We have some new creators. Come in we have some some coming back some returning And then we're doing the kickstarter in June. So mid June will be doing a kickstarter tear for that I'll give you another quick one real quick one of the tears last time whereas you've got to spend I think one of the tears was like three hundred dollars or something and you've got your head. Your severed head on the back of the cupboard. Edward Are Yeah. Those are actual people who back to kickstart awesome. So we're going to bring that back However I think we're doing seven slot and they're not all heads. I believe four of them I think. Five or four of them are going to be heads and then two of them are going to be actual body I think the set up is like the creepers in the mortgage or something like that. So we'll be bringing that back There was a few people after that. Were like man. I miss the chance that sold out so fast. 'cause WE LIMITED IT and they're like. I WANNA do it. So we saw the basically the supply and demand for it was like okay. Let's see if we want to open it up. We did talk to Fill Hallier who's the amazing cover artists for the front and back cover and he did the break and One of the stories hard man tooth and the book and he was like that was philly. So we're going to bring that back so you get that to yet. Another exclusive all right. Well that's the other thing. Then man to let the thing will go out on when you have that kickstarter make sure.

"Dale chance. Today I have guessed I have. Julio a WHO I did a panel with it to this year and now we can't get rid of each other just really excited to have a bond here and hey Julio how you doing tonight all right and yourself how you doing rob. I'm doing great man so all right this is it. Tell people about yourself. Give Him your background. Talk about what you do. Sweet Yeah My name is Julio Garra I am one third of the horrid winning guerrilla publishing based on the Northwest Indiana. We do our turn it of comics so to speak so not they were anti superhero. We just don't cater to that kind of crowd We do dark comedy I'm how can I say like love letters to eighties cartoons Social Justice Issue Comics. Just things outside of the norm so we have action horror. Humor Anything that you look for that. Not a comic book. That is stereotype. The Comic Book and That's what we do. Grill does a pretty good description of we actually had been Miller on here and we were talking a lot about guerrilla so hopefully people listening are a little bit more familiar with it but your stuff is just so cool and getting the panel with you sitting. There just had so much fun. You're such a cool guy. He got so much. Great stuff going on your works. Awesome to man so you so much really thrilled to have you on here now. Have you got a specific book? You're working on currently so yes so currently There's actually two things that I'm working on Or three I should say. I just finished up Illustrate for a upcoming Lucia chapter book with Alexa. Lex Graphic Press So I just finished that literally just finished. It submitted it and everything And ready for print at the moment It's basically GONNA be A series and it's GONNA be different New Orleans so you're going to first start off with Lucia Lucia for And find his rise to become Ludar. Then they're going to do like a referee and a ring announcer and a promoters. So you get to learn the different aspects of the the wrestling business The other thing I'm working on right now is the follow up tails to the cryptic closet Which is a horror anthology that we produced In October of last year or released in October last year with cryptic closet. Which is the horror whore and parody apparel based on his Chicago We have wwe superstar killer cross on it and he's going to return for the second one so you got the exclusive for that because we haven't announced it yet. Oh we so We're working on that right now and the third thing Which is really near and dear to my heart which is not saying. The other projects aren't with this last one that I'm talking about is I'm doing commissions And of course like every artists is doing commissions but this is called commissions for a cause and I'm doing a fifty fifty thing on these commissions. I'm not seeing any of the Prophet. I'm not seeing any of the money. However fifty percent of the commission price goes some my local condom bookstore Which is creative comics in Griffith Indiana and the other fifty percent goes to Northwest Indiana cancer? Kids which is a big Organization that I support really believe in In what they're doing with you know unfortunately cancer kids and especially with the pandemic and everything We talk about the elderly and stuff like that but we don't really pay attention to the sick especially the you know like people with cancer and especially the the kids with cancer so trying to help out with that. Doing some sketch covers or forty dollars. do a head sketch on them. So that's the third thing the real thing now like pushing at the moment. Wow so a hundred percent goes to these to charities. Then yeah basically you get you. Get an artwork. You get a one of a kind cover with the comic and you help out a local business and organization a medical organization. So it's like you're basically knocking two birds with one stone and you get something in return for that. His amazing man that is really amazing And I love that. You're helping on a comic store because that is something that we've talked about on this show with other Artists that are like it's it's tough times and we've been kind of brainstorming and as we go along waterways you can help with. This is one that maybe other artists could get involved with this This COMMISSIONS. For our cause so this is really really cool. We'll definitely put links are shown on and I'll definitely promote this on the facebook page. Because this is this is an exceptional use of your talents. I love it. I appreciate thank you. Yeah man so okay. Let's get into some fluff now that you know you've got us all serious. This is your dream. Khan who are you most excited to meet all dream CON Will Eisner that'd be your guy. Yeah we'll I fortunately got to meet Stanley and Frank Miller Who would also sue With all in all honesty I don't think comics would have came into my life My uncle was a big my got me into comic book. He was there when marvel was hitting its peak and he off and then when Frank Miller dropped dark knight and eighty four and I was born in eighty four. He was just like dove back in so I was fortunate to meet the two guys who got my uncle into it. Who brought in my life. But we'll Eisner I would say 'cause he's the one who basically mentor and Frank Miller and might Mongolia are like my my inspiration. Those guys I try to. I WanNa Mimic them so much. Wit like the the use of absolute blacks and mood and stuff like that so yeah he would be the one. He's he's the one that I'm missing your man. It's it's funny because when I think about your work I can totally see how you're inspired by Eisner and by Frank Miller. I totally see it. Thanks yeah I don't. I don't know if that if they would like that I'm sure they would. I'm sure they would your arts fantastic and it's always such a compliment especially if you can see where what you've done has inspired somebody else. It's huge compliment. So so with all these cons canceling. Everything's postponed right now. What do you think is the best way to support creators during this pandemic And it back then. It's kind of weird because we we came so far in technology so this is basically a blessing I would say especially for created Because we have like store envy and different websites and Oetzi and Ebay and all that stuff and a lot of other creators are actually using these outlets now like instagram and facebook and the different social media. I would say To support craters like share the post Buy something off of that because more than likely it's going directly to them if they're not doing you know like Hey. I'm doing for my shop or I'm GonNa do this No Jim Leaves doing what the auction on Ebay. And it's their goals. Wherever you want to go so stuff like that know ed scenes a big thing and I know a lot of people are like. Oh it's a soccer mom type.

"Chats. Today I have a special guest is actually a friend of Mine Lance Roger Asked. Hey Lance Low. Good to hear from you yeah. I'm super excited. We've been so busy. We haven't been able to connect so. I thought this was worrying opportunity. You've got a great great products that I want you talk about but let's start off by. I want you to tell people about yourself. Maybe a little background what you do. Well what I do is what used to be called radio drama. It's now there's a variety of names attached to a twentieth century twenty first century. I should say radio DRAMA AUDIO DRAMA FICTION. Podcast is the one that is the most popular but we have been producing audio drama. Since two thousand ten with our first production of starstruck and art company pocket universe productions and it's audio comics division does full cast audio dramas based on a variety of different subjects. We go off of independent comic books. We have done Short stories we have done the occasional novelization. We have done the occasional commission. We have done to very high profile projects at a lot of people probably are aware of One of which is the X. Files which we did for audible studios to pieces right there. Cold cases and stolen lives where we reunited the cast including David to company. Gillian Anderson Bill Davis Mitch Pathology and the lone gunman and then we also did before the hat. Lock and key before the television series happened and we did that with a cast of sixty actors all on location With the exceptions of our celebrity names of those being of orphan. Black Haley. Joel Osmond Kate Mulgrew and a special appearance by a Joe Hill's father the king of Horror Steven King and right now have just put out our newest production. It came out I as an audio book and October of last year. And now it is available for those of you. Who Don't do audio books. But do do podcasts. We have it available podcast and that is sort. We're here to talk about EC comics presents the vaults of horror see. I can't do it the way that Kevin Grevious doesn't notice pretty well. I cannot get to that level now. We'll talk about Kevin a second. But that's our newest production. We have put out the first season of EC comics presents. The Vault of horror and this is the sister title to tales from the Crypt and adapts the first twenty four stories from the first six issues of the original comic book series and is twelve episodes. Total two stories for episode and similar to our previous productions of X. Files Laki we have a massive cast involved in this. We'll talk about some the cast members in a minute but there sixty actors involved in this recorded in Maine recorded in Los Angeles and We have a fantastic sound score. We have incredible. Soundscape is was recorded. Utilizing three. D by normal microphones so it allows for the audience members to become completely immersed in the material especially if you have a noise canceling headphones on and the first four episodes are out right now. Episode five comes out on Friday so exciting. I absolutely love this property. I love these podcast. So that's why I was. I was thinking about this show and I thought you know you really need to come on. You really need to make people aware of this people. Listening to this are comics. Fans whether the raiders or just the casual fan. We've already see comics. Come on Yes yes exactly. We all remember tales from the crypt. It's the same energy it is the same spirit The only difference here is the voice off. Our host is completely different from out the Kripke because we wanted to separate ourselves from John. Carr's here as much as possible and the voice that we got through our dear friend. David Land whose father Michael Use produced this whole thing Batman. I don't know if anybody remembers that Dave is such a cool guy and when we told him that we were doing this. Said I have the perfect voice for you. I have the perfect voice. Any put us in touch with his friend. Kevin Grievous and Kevin. Grievous is a voiceover actor in Hollywood. He is the publisher of his own comic book. Line called DORK storm studios. He is also creator of the underworld movie franchise. So we got the of underworld to play the vault keeper and In addition to Kevin we have a total of sixty actor is. I'm in a couple of pieces of bill. Free SAR late director. is in eighteen of them We also have lost. We have in this. We have Phil proctor. Who is the original co founder of the fire? Sign Theater the Beatles comedy so we are working with one of the founders one of the most legendary comedy troupes of all time. We have denise Pouria is the Voice of MTV's Eon flux we have Peter Burke who is an audio book legend not to mention a former actor from the movie called caddyshack. Little movie called CADDYSHACK. Never heard of it never heard of it yes I've heard I've heard good things and Jonathan Woodward who was on Angel Firefly who is in wit with Emma Thompson and who is now a partner with our company. So they are the Linchpins in Sixty Ensemble Sixty actor ensemble and these guys just do an incredible job and you can hear it when you hear the show how much fun we were having telling these stories now these are these are the original stories from UC. That's not content that you've created under that banner. Correct no no no we. We went to the original stories but one of the great things about working with. Eci was that. C gave us carp launch to update the stories. Update the dialogue if we found in new and interesting angle to go with it because the stories are so stuck in the nineteen fifties even by their own admission. They wanted to update the stories as well. If you want to keep it in the nineteen thirties where the original story is. That's fine just maybe update the language a little bit. And that's what we did. They were so wonderful to work with and just so open to ideas One of the stories for example which is Rats have sharp teeth. That's a one person show literally and for some bizarre reason I had in my head Dr Seuss so I I turn the story into a bedtime story with the original dialogue for the most part. They are for for Phil although I expanded quite a bit but in terms of the vault keeper's narration. I turned it into rhyming couplets so we have this twisted little bedtime story for kids to listen to about a a grave robber going. After all their wealth that the citizens of this town decided to take to the grave with them. The enemy said he makes the rats in the graveyard and under the under underneath in the catacombs underneath so it was just so much fun they came back to us and said this is a great idea. God keep going so we did. It's me doing half of the adaptations and the other half adopted by Butch Dab Roseo who used to ride for mad magazine so it's another easy connection right. They're fantastic and you mentioned something in there that I think is important for people listening to know to. I actually got involved with you. I was telling you I think. See actually targets that like re teen Kinda Tena Market Really Well Oh yeah I was type of storytelling and what you just described. Absolutely would work. My daughter is thirteen now but when we first were listening to I think was some samples that you used Fact that you're trying to pitch this idea right. She fell in love with it. She said why want more. I want more of it so good and it really is. It really is a audio version of a comic book. As OPPOSED TO WE'RE GONNA take this. We're going to convert it so it almost sounds like a movie but you're listening to it. This is what the experience is supposed to be. So I'm a big fan big fan you thank you. Were really really proud of this. I do need to bring this up This was the last project or one of the last projects that are director and my friend of fifteen years and co-founder o'clock university. Bill you free. He was a horror fanatic. He loved Comic Books and Bill Unfortunately passed away three weeks ago from esophageal cancer and this was his bucket list project and yes he did lock. Yes he did the X. Files but honestly I think this is the past project if not one of the best projects that he ever did and not nice works. Yeah I- I suspect that he would be happy to say if I'm going to be remembered for something this is. Yeah Yup it's he. Put a lot of blood.

"Well I would have to. We'd have to go in a way back machine Take a time machine capsule. Can we can we? Can we do that? Okay I my my one regret You know I I'm a fan boy but I'm not somebody who has to get autographs and there's nothing against that but I just. I admire their work a lot of work but one person that I regret never meeting in my life was Jack Kirby and When I was probably nineteen or twenty He had come to Chicago before he passed away. He passed away a few years. Later and I just that's something that really has always bothered me. I just wanted to shake his hand and tell him and thank him for everything I wasn't I I can. I can honestly tell you. I wasn't Jack Kirby Before Jack. Ruby was cool. Okay I love Jack Kirby when I was seven years old okay and it never stopped. You know. I always loved Jack Kirby it's not. This is not something that. Oh you know Oh. These marvel movies are real popular. Who created this Jet Kirby Own Jack? Kirby's cool no I've loved Jack Kirby for over forty years hipster you were into. Oh that's it that's the best way to put it. Yeah well everybody was else was into and I you know and I love John. Burn George Press. I love Michael. Golden all those guys from the eighties. I Love Them. They're they're the I'd also mind but while everybody was into that. Nobody really like Jack Kirby you know. And here I was going through quarterbacks sins command e and internal and Omega. Can you know all that stuff so my convention would would be to meet you know? Kirby Gil Kane's you know Steve. The coaches passed away A few years ago Giambra SHAMMA Several years ago I got to see John. Ramada talk at San Diego about ten twelve years ago when my kids were born of my friends and I went to San Diego and that was just I was my my buddy. Kevin told me he said you know. You're I don't know if you realize it but you're missing up you're tearing up and I didn't have to meet them really. They have to shake his hand but just to hear him talk. Yeah Russo Humble. He was so humble and you so grateful for the life he had and for the fans in for being in this industry in before it was cool you know to be an industry so I got to hear him talk. Can I got and thank God? He got the daren cooked talk before he passed away. In Cook was on a jet panel with are you Mark Levin. The Kemp says there's this guy market. He was assistant curb years ago but he does. He does he's Kirby panels Mar Every every year and we got to hear Darwin talk and once again. I started cheering up but my buddies cheering up again. I go because Darwin just off. Don was talking about a couple. Someone had asked them. What was your favorite Jack Kirby Comics and he brought up a commanding story that I was familiar with and he started tearing up because it touched him and that same story touched me so there was a connection there. So it's just it's you know These guys aren't guys who put comics in a bag and you know we're we're investing They read them. They meant something to them Science getting off topic here but I also got see cook. It got to see Ramada. You know those old old time guys though Curbs on the top though for sure. Yeah Yeah I get that so do you. I know you. Do you really prolific tons of our when you go there. Do you ever do commissions for people you know Whereas trying to do during the pandemic I I don't mind doing commissions just have such a limited time And I kind of getting a sticky situation where I I hate to say no to somebody you know because if somebody asks you to do commission that means they really like your work and I really really appreciate it when I go to conventions the only time I get to see people who appreciate my work the stuff that I do from a job maybe five or six people see it. The that's it for corporate. You know nobody gets my work so I I'm getting better at saying no to people not because I don't want to but because I don't have the time to do something exactly I'm all or nothing if I if I do a commission for you. I wanted to look as good as something that I have that I'm selling convention because that's why you're buying it so it's funny that you mention it because I'm trying to catch up on some commissions from people that I've said yes to a year or six months ago too but I'm actively telling people. I'm sorry I can't do them because of my day job and then like you said if you if you ever see my booth I got a ton of stuff tons because you've only got now. He's moving into other things. Where honestly here's another That's Kinda run out of time here but that's something I recommend the people to do is if a lot. There's a lot of good out there who don't know what you know. What should I do? Get yourself checklist. I started doing buttons rob. You've seen my button of course and you. You make a checklist. And at some point there's going to be an endpoint. Then I you I was doing prince but I did a checklist and my goal was when you comic Book Convention to me. You WanNA cover every square inch of that table because you're paying a lot of money for that convention so for the past four or five years I've that's all I've been doing is covering the table and as you said like a facebook. You've probably seen some different stuff for me. Because that's done now. My buttons in my prints are done. I might do some more but now you I wanted to comics. You know so I got some got an. I got a nice secret project on the back burner that I'm working on some really tangible that people and that's that's the next thing but if you're trying to three or four things and rob you know in life you can't do the three four or five things half ass and get anything done you know. Make yourself list focus on. This is what I'm going to get done. And if it takes you six months or year or two years at least you got it done right then. The next one went. It's an accomplishment. So that's I mean that's accomplishment is doing is doing storytelling join comics storytelling. That's that's what I'm getting into now.

"Chance to I have favorites record. But just getting everybody. I've ever wanted on a podcast on this. Show people that I really want you to become aware of Darryl Young Daryl. Welcome to Shea thank you. Thanks for having me. It's a real honor Feel free to have me on your show. I really appreciate it. Thank you anyone who's been to a Chicago Com especially they're GonNa Know Daryl's work you. You should website and look at it as soon as you see it. You will absolutely recognize what Darrell has gone on. And it's just fantastic. Daryl can you? Can you tell people about yourself? Tell them about your background a little bit. Sure I'd be happy to I grew up in the seventies and the eighties. So I have a real affinity and love for comics cartoons and toys of that era seventies and the eighties I went to Columbia College A little later in life probably like mid in my mid twenties went to Columbia College In Chicago after they went right to work at a an animation studio in Chicago called Calabash animation so I was in a traditional animator about nine years We worked on commercials. That was ninety. Percent of our business was General Mills tricks. Lucky charms stuff like that. I was very lucky to learn About hand-drawn animation so that's my passion drawn hand-drawn that Computer Three D. I'm a Tutti Guy After doing that for about nine years live out in the suburbs of Chicago. Suburbs and I was commuting a minimum of two three hours a day and An opportunity arose They're a place was looking for Toy Designers for McDonald's happy meals and A friend of mine Childhood friend his name is Kevin Barber. Did I grew up with? We're still best friends to this day. Thirty years later told me about the job. And he's there There's this place called the marketing store about two miles from your house. Mike what and I had kids coming and I see my commute. Who's not not happy commute? I really liked what I did. I love the people I worked with but I applied for that very fortunate to get in and once again I was very fortunate to learn How TO DO Toy Design and I did that for about a year and a half and an opportunity arose while I was working there to do one better to work from home so I worked for a place called index promotions and been working there for about eleven and a half years Doing the same kind of thing doing We do toys for Burger King We do some cereal toys. We do promotions for sporting events I worked on metlife. Snoopy plush designs for many years did many many of those so So but doing twenty nine for about about thirteen years ago. always My passion though my love like a lot of artists who have who are fortunate to get jobs in airfield you know we. We always have a love for something else. And My love is for going back to the whole you know comics cartoons toys You Know Action Figure Shogun warriors all that. Kinda stuff and I had a couple of friends. twin sisters named Sarah and Catherine Saturn. They worked with the show soon. Because we're we're friends with them. I highly recommend A. Yeah getting them on the show. A great very talented individuals I worked with them and they were starting to do conventions in the Chicago area and They knew I love. I was a geek deep down and I mean a good way and So this a hey you know. Once she started doing conventions. Why don't you just give it a try? Give it a try and I tried it Five years ago I think to to wherever five years ago was I did a C. to easy to And I've been doing it for the past five years so I only do shows in Chicago See to have done wizard world a couple years. I do Show and Share Ville Indiana called Northwest Indiana. Comecon sure It's it's a small show but it's it's a great show. Very friendly people put together. Brian Kelly So I've been kind of doing this for five years On weekends and during time off and My my style is Old School Since this is something that I like to do. I'm not trying to be like the latest greatest. Whoever the hottest is a lot of editors will whoever that they had artists were that trend is. That's what they're looking for. I would imagine but I don't really care about that. So my stuff looks like something probably like out of a seventies or eighties. Comic Book And I didn't know how people were going to react to that Quite frankly you know having worked in the studio Situation where you're working for. You know I I do toys you know like for you know Marvel Disney You know these big corporate people You know Cubs sox blackhawks on stuff like that. You kind of out of touch with what people like so I my recommendation. I honestly for anybody you thinking about getting into doing conventions or or shows or whatever is do you like so I I just you know this is what I like. This is what like to dry. You Know I love beloved Jack Kirby Steve Dicko a love Jonah Selbe Shamma Like the Mike CanNot Shogun Warriors All those sound other barbarian so I started drawing like that and to my surprise my pleasant surprise was got a got a great reaction from it. Like you know Most people in my age group. You know probably guys in their forties or fifties. Wow Wow it just makes me feel so good and then we we talk for about ten fifteen minutes about the toys that we had. And that's and that's a great feeling but something that I wasn't expecting that I really love is Guys and girls in their twenties younger people. Love that retro. Look I love that Retro Style? Oh we got the DOT pattern. Oh you know look just like Jack Kirby and I'm like Oh my God you know. I didn't know that there was an audience out there. The other and you're so it's funny because it is referral but it looks really fresh. Looks really cool. So thank you think you'd be from the very beginning and I do all that Richard stuff I mean you mentioned microns. I love all. That stuff doesn't look. It doesn't look like a rip off distinctly yours and it's really cool. I remember thinking that we found you was Was walking around with my friend. Chris and I think we ended up ogling your booth for about a half hour time for Half Hour C. Two is pretty tough and we. We couldn't leave and we were just like. Oh look at this. It's amazing we loved it so then that's why I say anyone who goes to like wizard world or see tweet in Chicago if they walk round artist Selah. They're going to have walked around by booth and they're going to know exactly. What is I'm talking to? 'cause it's it's really distinct but it's super cool. Thank you I appreciate that. I think you know Any artist who is Has INFLUENCES WHO? Who or who is loving something? They're they're going to bring something else to the table unless they're tracing it in Photoshop which I see a lot of that conventions due to but you gotta bring yourself you gotta you gotTa bring yourself to to the to the work so I appreciate the and it's nice to because that is something I hear from people is that I think maybe that's why the younger people might like. It is that It reminds him something maybe their dad liked. But it's also something because I like animation. Maybe that's what I'm bringing to I. I don't know you know but I I really appreciate feedback you know. And I'm sure that's what they're reacting to. It's it's cool. Thank you so okay. If this was your dream convention who would you be most excited.

It's just the place Is Affected by you know canceled towers and you know. Obviously everybody's trying to social distance so they've been hit hard And it's just helping them pay for food and cleaning supplies in.

"Back to La Chats. I'M ROB and today. I have a really Special Guest Sarah Richard. With Me Sarah. I'm super excited. Talk to you welcome. Thank you so much. He's Archea so Sarah. What stood out. Can you can you tell us about yourself? Sure Yeah So I'm an artist living in Salem Massachusetts right now Been working in comics for about eight years or so started my whole kind of art career actually working at a Hasbro a sculpted toys for about two years right out of college so got my little taste of corporate life. There in swiftly decided. I'd rather be a freelancer so Luckily kind of yester- start doing conventions. got a lot of really cool people there some of my best friends. I've met conventions in through people admitted conventions and of Meta reps through a Free Comic Book Day at a midnight. Comics in Manchester. New Hampshire is like my mom first. Comic store used to frequent in yet us. Since the I got an Eisner in Ringo nomination editor a resume worked on my little pony for like seven years. A other than that just always doing our show you were nominated for the and for the. That's pretty amazing. Pretty impressive yeah. It was really cool Eisner nominated for in back in two thousand thirteen For my book Acadian Dino through a young press which is a part of Press I believe Children's publication for really young readers. In-in the Ringo was actually last year With my friend Franco He He wrote the go. See Owl which I illustrated In the also got nominated for best cover artist which was kind of mind blowing awesome. Did it was still cool. That's really cool and you did a you did a cover for storm King as well right. I did a short story cover. Oh that's interesting just short story. I've actually this is my second short story with a storm King. I did one last year. That is about like Malians net. Low Crossover but this year super excited decided to try and take a more kind of historic path. I guess in try to do something that looked like like nineteenth century engravings in all about a lighthouse in some spooky goings on so. I'm really really excited for that. One coming out for details for Halloween night issue six which hopefully will be out In October though yeah really cool so I I I was looking at your stuff and you have a lot of stuff in your shop. We'll get some links out there in a minute but you have pins you have some original art your prince. Your stuff is is really cool kind of Gothic and weird about that. Why are you so attracted to that man So yeah I guess he kinda all started. When I was a kid I used to love Scary stories to tell him. The dark was my favorite book. extinct cheese. I think was my other favorite book which was just the weirdest kids book that I could find. I'm just always really liked kind of Morbid macab. Dark stuff but also like kind of trying to find that balance where it's dark and scary but also beautiful like I really love Victorian Morning Jewelry in in pretty much anything about the Victorian Times where they really embrace China. They're they're dark gothic a ways of life. I mean back in the eighteen. Hundreds everybody was dying all the time. So I mean you you kind of have to. I guess find the silver lining in all that but I just always thought it was really cool to kind of find that balance of Lake Spooky Pretty. I guess But I also really like you know like Art Deco Art Nouveau too. So there's kind of like that influencing my style in our doug has a few kind of. I guess if you looked at on Batman the animated series would be the best way like like our deco can be used to create such a really cool. Dark style The that is also just artistic I love it. I love those athletics. I guess I guess what the pins really wanted to kind of create at least with some of them like my own version of like the Victorian Victorian Morning. Kind of Look but also just kind of like little doodles that thought would be Kinda cool to wear like pins have been really cool. We're it's it's wearable art. You know like you can buy a prince. If you have the wall space or lapel you can put a pin on it. Still carry around your favorite artists work on it. So yeah that's a roundabout way to answer that hopefully notes. It's great I I'm a big Fan of. I'm looking at these. The pins that that you have and they really are absolutely wearable art. It's kind of thing I would be completely attracted to if I was walking through artists. Elliott's so who? Now do you ever take commissions and you yeah. I'm actually taking way more now. Because of all the the conventions being canceled I usually take a very limited list at home so that I can work on on deadlines in such I've actually stopped taking so many commissions at shows too so that I can focus on getting some deadlines done but anyway Yes I do take emissions. I take a patriotic patriots commissions. All the time But then I'll open it up to everybody else a little bit more rarely so yeah. If you become a patriarch Patriot. Reminding you get an absolute spot on my list in. I will draw nearly anything that you'd like. So that's really the best way to get commissions from you that not just contacting. Join your fan and become involved with you that way and then you could do commissions through that absolutely yeah totally. It's one of the ways I can give back. I feel Kinda bad because the Patriots are the the Patriots I have Right now. It's been so crazy just trying to make ends meet right now that I haven't been able to keep up as much as I would like with Specials going out but what I do is Show I looks at some stuff on that I will hold back on showing everybody else for at least like a couple of weeks if not like a couple months So like gallery things that I do. I'll show I look for patrons only aura. Yeah mostly mostly Gallery Steph actually showed a piece that I submitted to vogue for a gallery in the back of the magazine. I you patriots a few days ago so I'm going to hold off on showing that to everybody else probably for another month or so. So yeah. So what's what's Your Patriots on address. And we'll put all this in the show notes so people don't have to scramble pullover and write things down. It'll be there. But why don't you give people to listen? Can hear it from its under the art of Sarah Richard. Or if you type in Sarah and I think of them only one on there right now so somebody will pop up with like a lady holding a will Designed in got a little intro video on there that I really need to update because it's probably four years old at this point but yeah one of the things on the list to do so. We'll keep referencing your website. But why don't you give your website information as well sure? Yeah as though it Sarah. Richard Dot Com S. A. R. A. R. I C. H. A. R. D. Siamese Singular Richard without an h on Sarah but Yeah that's got all the links to my social media and A contact page on there as well as some links to some Stefan Society six. I think I've got an illustration unlike shower curtain or something that you can still get on there But yeah just got some some my newest work on their I recently redid my website at the end of last year. So it's Nice and fresh in Nice in Spooky. So there's a lot of references to Salem here. I'm going to ask a question. That's right on your website. I'M GONNA ask it exactly like you have it. Why Salem Oh my gosh it's just like living in exactly what Kinda history alike. It's leg the the dark spooky macab kind of thing that you associate Salem. Even though living here I found that is so blown out of proportion. You're not gonNA find like all the decorations of will you will find them up all year round but not as much as you would think aren't like skeletons hanging in trees year or anything but like the more subdued history is very cool. The which trial stuff is definitely around And actually related to one of the accused witches so my tenth great-grandmother grandmother is Margaret Scott. And her name.

"Yeah the trials and tribulations of us. Whoa is US right so let? Let's talk about a couple things I mean I know you. Have you have a number of things you're doing? You're doing things with DC. You've got this our book of what are the comics. That are that are out right now that you really want people to pick up and I'm sure you're like everything I've ever done. But what would you say like? Hey pick this up a really proud of it. This is my ideal Yeah go SANAL is one of those things that that and yeah you're right. The answer. Is Everything pick up everything? I've ever But THE GO. Al is definitely one of those things. I'm really proud of. It was a true collaboration with Sarah. Richard and her art records just phenomenal. You know she does. He painted fully illustrated pages. When we conceived of the idea. You know it was me basically begging her. Why do you not have a book with als? Because you do these beautiful paintings of and she goes. Well I'm not really a writer you know and I'm like I will write whatever you want type thing. And and uh she's like well. I don't really like doing panels if we're going to do our own book and I'd like to do something a little different. And and she did these full page illustrations and I said I will. I can write that you know so that one. I'm super proud of We we are working on another project together that that I'm not allowed to talk about but it. I'm super excited about with her. Then get to work with her again. so. I can't wait for that to come out because that's that's even more unique In terms of being being from me an artwork from her So that and and Right now on my on my patriot. Have a book called Fox that evil that I'm working on that I'm doing between things so it's not something that I'm I'm putting out on a regular basis is just whenever I get like five pages together putting out Taryn and eventually I'm going to be putting up on comics and eventually if I get enough pages I'll I'll put it out in print but you know mind is kind of always going and was working on something so even when I'm not working on something that I'm getting paid to do from. Dc Year somebody else. My head is full of stories and Ann Arbor on constantly struggling to get to every day. So you're you mentioned your patriotic. Is that specific specifically for ghost on all or is it your patriots on no my Patriot? Yeah Okay so tell people what they do is it just patron dot com slash. Franco slept FRANKEN underscore. I think but you can search it as you know. Franko it'll it'll come up far. Franz Oh so patriots on Dot Franko and it's just Doing a a weekly one page story that I'm writing along with my son but I'm doing the artwork with and I'm trying different things like I'm using photograph backgrounds of manipulating them with some art stuff. So that's been kind of fun to explore with some doing one page up on Patriots. This absolutely free to read. You could go up there once a week and read the new page. The Fox of evil is behind the pay wall. So you know if you WANNA give a couple of bucks as a donation type thing you can. You can read all the all that stuff up there the Fox and evil stuff The there's constantly stuff that's going on. You know that that we're looking to do for comics and and other stuff is just The problem and it's not a problem at all. This is just being really sarcastic in trying to be funny but you know the they keep paying me to do stuff you know so It's it's that's taking away from the crater on stuff that I wanna do but it's not A. It's not a bad problem to have you know right getting paid by DC. To do these other books. And I'm like okay. I'll put this on hold but here an in-between things. I'll get a couple of pages or something so I'm still able to do it very cool. So our during this time. Are you taking commissions at all I have taken a few currently not because I do have a shortlist of commissions to that I I open up every once in a while right. Now it's full and the other thing that a lot of people don't know about me is that I'm a fulltime high school art teacher so that's taking up a good amount of my time now that we're doing this distance learning here in New York It's proving to be a little bit more challenging than actually being in the classroom with the kids so It's been taking up a lot of time Over the last couple of weeks. Yeah Here's a little something people don't know about me. I'm a college professor. I have talked about this before. Yeah yeah so I do understand. Although I was in a unique position win this all hit. I'm teaching online this semester. So literally all the people in the business department were scrambling trying to figure out what to do. And I went okay. I'll send an email so it helps. I do feel your pain so okay Franko now. This is going to be a hard question for you. Well here here's why it's hard you do so many folks. This is your dream convention. Who are you most excited to meet other than me? Okay all right I was gonna I was gonNA say right So it's it's it could be anybody even somebody that doesn't seem to conventions Were living dead to Ooh no. Let's not do that. 'cause then that opens up too many possibilities okay. Let's yeah let's stick to now the Aaron now if it were here now and if it were today I would like to try and meet and not just a photo op. But I'd like to try and sit and talk for at least maybe ten minutes I think would be Steven Spielberg. He's he's one of my idols from from way back. And Luckily at one point in my career got to meet George Lucas and that was an absolute thrill for me So yes Steven. Spielberg would be the other guy my on my bucket list and I would. I would love to meet him and just talk to him About you know the process and work and all that other stuff when it one of the fun things for me was I got to meet Frank Miller at a at a convention at a party and I was able to to kind of alone with him for a few minutes. I got to talk to him. Not so much about comics but about About movies and directing at the things. You've got to do so. That was like a big thrill for me. And like I said talking to George Lucas and the other one would be Spielberg. I think would be the other one. Yeah that sounds awesome in fact I had invited. We used to do a live show at the blue box cafe in Elgin blue box and I actually sent a request to George Lucas people because he was living here in Chicago. I said Hey I think he dig it. We don't have to interview him. I'm just inviting him down and I did get a response. They said he he can't they said He. He wants to walk into a blue box cafe. Doctor who themed cafe watching a podcast about nerd stuff he would be mobbed while yeah and I was like. Oh so close. That would have been great to sit down with him and Spielberg. I think would be definitely on my list. Have you seen the movie five? Twenty five seventy seven. I have not okay. I'M GONNA make a high recommendation to you and everybody listening it's you. I don't know if you can get it online or anywhere as of right now. I don't think it's been released publicly. But they do screenings around the country. The it's it's five. Twenty five seventy seven by Patrick. Read Johnson. It's a movie about the summer. That Star Wars came out. It's his true story and there is a bomb. Sent him out to California because he wanted to be a filmmaker and he ended up meeting George Lucas and seeing this stuff before star wars came out. He comes back and he's telling friends like wait till you see this. And everyone looked at him like he's nuts and but there is a great spielberg part in it he gets Spielberg. And it's it's crazy 'cause he was obsessed with Spielberg yes. Yeah I seen a couple of those different documentary and they were very much in that group of they would go to different sets like George. Lucas would come to the set of One of his movies and he would go and see the star wars stuff and and they would go to Francis Ford Coppola set about when he was doing something so it was very much you know. They were very in tune with each other so it. It's kind of cool to see that process and I don't think that really exists much anymore in Hollywood the time before that the the golden era of Hollywood. And then there's this this section in the middle with those guys Where they would be all kind of like you know You know palling around. And they all came together type thing and I don't really think that exists much more any anymore. I think the closest you have might be Tarantino. Robert Rodriguez right. They seem to be pretty tight for a while and they seem to be involved into those projects a lot but I agree with you so okay. We're going to shift gears. Because that was I went off on a tangent there. We mentioned different ways to support comic shops. What do you think all these kinds canceling? What what would you say is the best way to support creators? During this pandemic He s parting. Creators is is Is An easy thing to do. You know they're they're Oliver Social Media. If you like them you can follow them. If you don't know how to follow them you can find out easily enough Find out if they have a commission list Gracious enough to ask me about mining. I do have one. But it's it's full. I take a limited amount because of all the other work that I'm doing but Yeah find out if they have a commission lists find out if You know you can get a piece from them or or by some of their original artwork from from books and stuff like that You know you tend to get online and you see these prices that Jim Lee guests for his pieces. And you're like oh I'm never gonNA be able to afford that but there's other artists out there that that you know are pretty reasonable and you can search him out and helped them out 'cause Unfortunately for for a lot of artists conventions are a big part of their their salary and Not having them now. It looks like you know maybe through September and beyond is is going to be real big hit for the industry although all around is starting to show trying to draw people to these creators to find ways to support them however we can so great answer man. So how do people get.

"You know that's way on the back burner sure. Where can people find your work? Where can they find the things that you have published? Where do you have just like? A central website is on. Dvr Weird this. Well another thing that I've done for a long since nineteen ninety-two In Nineteen ninety-two. I started a distribution company for small press. Comics called spitting half and that was kind of what I called my little self publishing efforts and stuff like that. I had a little record label and I helped distribute I focus on mostly like art and literary comics definitely small press self published things And to a certain extent international comics. I try to bring over a better in translation so You know at this point on the website under half website. I've got maybe six hundred or so books online from all over the world and So that's kind of what I do in my day job to and it's also a labor of love. It's just I love getting good comics into people's hands and hard to find comics and kind of more obscure things that People don't really have much access to so all that stuff can be found and a half dot com including all my own work and stuff like that. It's all in one. Spot there spitting a half now. Do you have a patriotic or anything ways? People can support you. Yes so a couple years back. I started a Patriot on and it was. I mean it's completely changed my life I it's kinda tripled my income. So you know I was. I was one of those poor cartoonists I was able to keep doing my work and keep focusing on my work but it definitely took a lot of sacrifice in terms of financial stability and stuff like that but you know I was fine with that My most important thing was just to be able to do what I WANNA do. Without having to compromise it or anything so a couple of years back I started a Pai Chan. And that's been a game changer. For me so I suppose paycheck dot com slash John Porcelain. But I think if you just search me on patriots it should pop up for that. There's different levels. I do A lot of online stuff. That's exclusive to pay people and then there's also a level where you get that kind of stuff and you also get physical stuff mailed in the mail when I when I put out. A new issue came cat. Or a little zine or you know I try to come up with little Physical things to send the people stickers patches and scenes and you know different odds and ends to to put in the mail the people at that level too. So it's been fun it's been just I mean it's helped me financially but in another way it's it's in a different way of really connecting with my audience and my readers and stuff so it been pretty fun so never take commissions online is people. I'm not sure how that works for you. I know a lot of artists and cartoonists do commissions to make a little extra. You ever do that. Is that part of your Patriot on sure. It sounds something that I really pursue a whole lot but You know people will approach me about it. And so I I always am happy to do. Drawings for people I do a lot of like portraits family portraits and pet portrait's especially and turns out that I do a lot of like wedding invitations. And things like that. But now the one thing that's weird for for me that's different than a lot of cartoonists as I don't actually saw my original artwork like original page king cat or something. I don't sell those but I so as an alternative I do people will if you have a favorite page or something like that. I'll actually re dry and it's actually usually comes out a little bit nicer because I use really nice paper to do the commissions on and stuff whereas camp pages could be drawn on the back of an envelope or something you know and so I'll do that for people You know like I said. It's I don't really advertise it too much but if people are interested. I'm fully open to doing that stuff. And I I try to keep it definitely very affordable so I my whole thing about making comics versus. Making fine are is that. I liked the accessibility of it and I liked the affordability of it and Kind of And anybody who wants my art can get it in in for five bucks for the or whatever and So even with the original art work that I do. For people commissioned artwork. You know I try to keep it pretty reasonable. I think it commissions are just a good way to kind of stretch people right now while we have this pandemic and it's hard for people to like get some of that physical stuff or get into stores. So that's why I was asking. I thought you know if you haven't great and it sounds like that is an option what you think with all these cons canceled postponing. What do you think is the best way that people can support creators right now? Well I mean buying stuff from them. You know online whether it's supporting their John or go into their Web store and picking up a few things and having it sent to you certainly commissions would be great. You know that that's a great way of getting money in people's pockets. I I think you know part of the whole thing. That's been interesting to me as a self publisher doing it. This long is that I have a lot of great stuff the Internet but it certainly has made it easy to get in touch with people as made it easy to send just even an an email saying. Hey Man I've been reading your work for twenty years and I just wanted to say thank you for what you do. I mean it sounds Corny. But that kind of stuff mean so much especially cartoonists at such a Isolated kind of sit at home at a desk and Hash things out by yourself. Kind of art form that To get those little bits of encouragement and support from people means means a lot to cartoonist. So you know. I wasn't sure how things they go with. Cove it when with my distribution services and things like that and obviously orders for stores and stuff have dropped off a lot. But I'm staying very busy with people who are looking to get cool comics in the mail and you know I the only real difference for me as I ship things once a week now instead of basically daily under. Yeah well I'm just trying to minimize everybody's contact with the outside world a little bit. So I I go on Friday afternoons and ship off fat weeks orders and but you know so far knock on wood. It's been Still pretty consistent you know ordering things online dropping. People Align Order Commission. It's it's so easy to get in touch with your favorite artists and and connect with them at this point that You know in the best of times people appreciate it and and nowadays it's it means even even a little more so if this dream con okay who would you be most excited to meet in the whole world yet alive or dead. It's it's your uterus. However you want slice up it's a dream convention Jesus God I don't know Jesus how about that. I'd like to sit down. Sit Down dinner with Jesus. Didn't pick his brain about life things to say. Bet Okay. That's that's the first I've had I think sitting down and getting Some answer straight from the Horse's mouth straight straight from the person who probably most impacted Western civilization would help answer a lot of questions about the direction of our society. Maybe I think I think it would be helpful. Could as I really WANNA dance. Jesus shows up at. That would be interesting. Yeah if you're talking about cartoonist. God I kick myself a little bit that I never met Jack Kirby because he ended up being such an inspiration to me. Obviously my comics are nothing like Jack. Kirby's comics but I love so much the passion of what he does and the idiosyncrasies of what he did with comics and you know I hear stories from people who met him at cons in the early nineties or late eighties and you know I loved his comics at the time. I just didn't really realize who he was. Because I I used to collect all the his Monster Comics in the quarter. Been you know the seventies reprints monsters. Well they reprinted all those Atlas Age Chicago and I just I mean I know. They're still because day. Those are my favorite comics. And the whole world was Jack Kirby Monster Comics so like any inkling Jack Kirby was but I wasn't never I wasn't really into superheroes or or any of that kind of stuff at that time so I would have. I wish I had the foresight to driven out to California sometime and knocked on the door. 'cause I I would have liked to have met him. Had to good answers. And nobody said Kirby yet either but I would have thought he would have shown. Oh Yeah so best way for people to get in touch with you is through your website. Is that what you're saying? Yeah if you go to spend a half dot com. I mean I'm on a I'm not all of it because it's so much now but I'm on facebook on twitter. I must on Tumbler which you know I I refuse to give up. Hope on Tumbler I'm on instagram. I have King Cat King. Dash Cat dot is my kind of basic king cat site but the main you know ordering site and stuff is spitting half dot com. All of that stuff has my contact information on it and so I'm pretty easy to get ahold of crates and I will put all of that in the show notes. People can get in touch with. You can order stuff and I really really encourage people to do this. I I can't tell you what a big Fan I am. And how long? I've been a fan Not just manual. You Been Zine Guy Like I love scenes to and yours always always hippie the right way so thank you John. If you've got so if you've got those early he's those early can cat that's a that's a pretty Tight community because Like the first dozen or so issues I I I made eighteen copies of each one or you know and I've found that my thinking I think. Yeah my thinking was. I had five or six friends that I give them to. I put three copies of it. You know at the turn table or I think Graham crackers that was later though but those first one and I you know I sold them through. Factsheet five actually five with list them so. I hope that I get a couple of orders. And maybe it'll take a six months or so to sell out of my print run of eighteen copies and then. I do that in the next issue so there were very very few of those early King. Cats made you know so there's not too many of them out there. I'm a An elite club. Then because I do there you go hold onto those things. That's right that's right. Well John Thank you so much for being on and I'll get this out in. I hope the world finds you.

The anywhere between nine and ten is right trying to eight. Ten is when I tried to keep a post as other kind of you know people can go. Oh yeah there's comicstrip today right right but there's that I'm talking with animator right out actually work on a animation also for October something completely different than What's in the comic book? This is something I've been trying to get done for about three years now and other animators. I've I've worked with. They just gave up. And don't think it's because it's not because it's too difficult but it's three era so I think that might be the trial okay. I might have to shrink it down just a little bit. Maybe to but I can't I can't go into less than two does has some dancing and stuff in it and it's all about skeletons. So it's it's it's a it's a very fun project. And of course the kids folks There's a few other projects that I have in the pipeline. But I gotTA start cleaning up some of this stuff. I sure her while horse way too much for one person. It's so with with all these kinds cancelling or postponing. What do you think is the best way for people to support a creator? Hugh if they do like like what me for instance you know. I don't have a Patriot so go on. Facebook go on instagram. Go on twitter or any of the social networking sites that you know that. I am on sharing liking definitely sharing just letting people know. Hey check out this guy stuff. You know I've had some people have twitter. I've never really posted stuff on twitter but I've got people who are now retweeting a lot of the things that are posted there. That's a big thing you know. It's not all about the money all the time I mean yes makes the world go round but it's not all just about the bunch it's about getting the word out there. Sure and I know that a lot of people I've seen on their people are getting laid off work. They don't have the money right now. Money is very tight even stimulus and stuff like that will. It's going to be coming out any people that's gotta go for food. You know that that whole thing toilet paper could find it It's got a goal for other things and so that's why I always say sharing is caring and other sounds raise. Say kind of weird. But it's true.
