Mice TemplarI recently sat down with awesome creator, avid indie supporter, and my friend Michael Avon Oeming before Turkey Day for my latest inspirational installment of Indie and the Geek.


 

 

 

Wonter Tot MFTOkay, I'll be the first one to admit that I am not a big fan of child or baby versions of adult characters.  It's played out. It can be silly. It can be downright "goofy." (Just look at those damned Disney Babies - pun intended!)

Back when Chris Claremont introduced The X-Babies with Arthur Adams in an X-Nen Annual, I deemed it cringeworthy, yet tolerable, mostly due to the stellar art by the hyper-detailed Art of Adams. The X-Babies would show up periodically, just often enough to test my eye rolling ability.

Honey Boo BooArtist/writer Michael Fitzgerald Troy may be the busiest man in showbiz!  After the rerelease of his Mother Monster-endorsed Going Gaga! and his recent contributions to Bluewater Productions' Polka Spot: My Life in Pictures, Troy is at it again with the comic book 15 Minutes: Honey Boo Boo.  Troy's comic book uncovers the reasons behind America's fascination with the pint-sized Toddlers & Tiaras star. The comic is part of Bluewater's 15 Minutes series, which focuses on reality TV celebrities.

 

GMS Apple Tart 1Have you ever wondered about your favorite superhero's favorite foods? Food is a universal language, and you can use it to connect with anyone -- even characters in your favorite comics! When our friends over at Fanboy Comics suggested that we collaborate with them, our wheels started to turn as we imagined the many possibilities of exploring foods related to some of our nerdier tendencies.

That's right, aside from our love of Brussels sprouts and farm fresh eggs (nerdy in its own right), a few of us at Garlic, My Soul display some of the more classically nerdy characteristics. Be prepared to get more acquainted with that side of us, because this will be the first of many geek-tastic GMS posts. And, we thought we'd kick things off by conducting a little thought experiment.

 

Nix ComicsToday, we have a great interview with Ken Eppstein of Nix Comics, thanks to one of our mutual indie friends putting us in contact. Let’s get to know him and his work a little bit better together, shall we?

 

 

 

Happy 1When I first found out that my awesome friend Darick Robertson would be joining up with Grant Morrison to make Image Comics' title Happy!, I was ecstatic. Transmetropolitan remains my current favorite graphic series of all time, and Happy! is already shaping up to be just as amazing a piece of art and literature.

 


As you guys know, I contact a friend of mine who has made it in the indie comic book industry to sit down for one inspirational interview a month, and I am beyond Happy! to have Darick Robertson as my featured Indie and the Geek creator for October.


Hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did.

 

The Legacy CoverI sat down with Forrest Rawls, writer of the comic book The Legacy, for my latest indie interview here on Indie and the Geek!

Dancing with the Stars
has kicked off its hundred and fifty-seventh season, this time in the form of an all-star version. (Apparently, there is a limit to the number of celebrities willing to don gay apparel and wiggle it, just a little bit, for the prime time audience at large.)

I'm tuning in 'till past favorites Pamela Anderson and Kirstie Alley get kicked off.  Hey!  I'm a loyal fanboy,  I was one of the 5 people who saw Barb Wire in the theater. The only one not wearing a trench coat, albeit, but present nonetheless.

Which brings us to Kirstie Allie.

In the penultimate episode of Books & S--t Season 1, Brian and Sam welcome author Eric Brach, a professor at Cal Lutheran who is co-authoring the memoir of Billy McGill, former #1 NBA draft pick, to be published by University of Nebraska Press.  It's a menage a trois of banter, drunkenness, and heavy petting as we discuss celebrity authors, the delicate art of writing biographies, and what YOU can do to help save the tragically endangered CA Boose!

This is the episode Brian has been waiting for!  Finally, we drink the Stout that heals the soul, the sweet nectar of St. James' Gate, Dublin's pride, Guinness!  And, making the show even more special, we welcome Jason Enright, Founder and Publisher of WE Comics.  In this episode, we talk about The Millions' list of difficult books, their merits, their flaws, and why exactly they're so damned hard to read.  We also talk to Jason about the starting his own company and his favorite literary genre, all while getting very drunk on Guinness.
