Fanboy Comics' Sam Rhodes chats with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actor Brett Dalton (Grant Ward) about playing a tough guy on screen, how he relates to his character, and more at the PaleyFest red carpet in Hollywood, CA.
Clifford Meth is a writer, editor, and champion of the rights of comic book creators. As if promoting his new book Comic Book Babylon (a dishy, behind-the-scenes look at the ins and outs of the comic book industry) wasn't enough to keep Cliff busy, he is also trying to resurrect a project created by late, great comic legend Dave Cockrum.
Cliff was kind enough to answer a few questions about Comic Book Babylon and Dave Cockrum's Futurians.
MILD, BUT GOOD-NATURED, SPOILERS AHEAD
Sam and Dean Winchester have a pretty tight schedule. Who of us would be able to juggle starting the apocalypse, dying, being resurrected, clawing hand and foot out of purgatory, and generally being the last line of defense between us and our worst nightmares? It would be enough to drive any of us to the drive-thru.
But, while pre-frozen foods in aluminum wrappers work on the fly, what Winchester would snub his favorite foods, homemade? Plus, we owe them. For a time, they took care of a thing we’d rather not get into just now.
“It was so much easier when I knew who the enemy was.” -- Major Kira Nerys
DS9’s great strength has always been its sprawling cast. While the other entries in the franchise largely confined their drama to the command staff of a starship with the occasional reoccurring player, DS9 built a rogue’s gallery of guest stars, many of whom were among the show’s strongest characters. Of these, a single man stands atop all others and remains my favorite amongst any of the Trek shows. That man? Garak. Plain, simple Garak.

Do you like robots? How about Jet Packs? How about awesome stories about robots and jet packs?
If you answered yes to any and (Let's be honest here.) more likely all of those questions, then you cannot miss this interview with writer and illustrator Royden Lepp about his incredible graphic novel series, Rust. Give it a listen below.
“Good luck, Mr. Sisko.”-- Captain Jean-Luc Picard
I’ve loved Star Trek for as long as I can remember. I was a fan of the films (well, the second, third, and fourth anyway) and eagerly embraced TNG when it hit the air. Despite an abiding fandom, I never turned into one of those scary, obsessive fans the franchise is infamous for. Well, not until I saw Deep Space Nine.
The following is an interview with Martin Stiff, writer and illustrator of the comic book series The Absence and co-director of the graphic design studio Amazing 15.
