Don't touch Books & S--t or you'll get burned, as Brian and Sam drink their way through another amazing episode, this time welcoming special guest Joe LeFavi, transmedia guru and Founder and Ambassador of Awesome of Quixotic Transmedia.  They discuss recent food-based news stories, namely the True Blood cookbook and the decision that Chicken Soup for the Soul will actually make soup.  The trio also drunkenly debates the changing face of entertainment consumption, the potential of transmedia, and the author Joe LeFavi would most like to have an affair with.

Kitty and BatzHello, all! Welcome to another issue of Indie and the Geek.  This week I sat down with Richard Zerga and Kristi “Batz” Zerga to discuss their upcoming indie works this September and their very own indie publisher. Here’s how it all went down.  

 

Wonder Ellen MT"When you're alone,
And life is making you lonely,
You can always go downtown.
When you've got worries,
All the noise and the hurry,
Seem to help, I know, downtown . . ."

So go the lyrics to Petula Clark's famous pick-me-up song, "Downtown," and the same could be said about Ellen DeGeneres' feel-good afternoon talk show.  If you lost your job, your car won't start, or your freakin' hairdresser cut your bangs too short, Ellen can turn all of that around. 

Batman MaybeThe following is an interview with Wesley Freitas, co-creator and star of "Batman Maybe," a hysterical parody of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" featuring the characters of The Dark Knight Rises.  In this interview, Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon chats with Freitas about the inspiration behind the music video, the process for collecting the amazing sets and costumes, and fan response from the Batman community!

This interview was conducted on August 27, 2012.

 

Cards Against HumanityThe following is an interview with Eli Halpern, one of the many creators of Card Against Humanity, a self-described "party game for horrible people."  In this interview, Fanboy Comics' Sam Rhodes talks with Halpern about how the hit game got its start, the various ways that you can acquire a copy, and when you can expect the gold-plated shark-hide edition to hit store shelves.

This interview was conducted on August 23, 2012.

Fury of SolaceFury of Solace is an incredibly immersive, new series that combines a web series, live Twitter events, and a digital comic to tell a superhero story in an entirely new way. I recently sat down with Emmett Furey, the creator of Fury of Solace, to discuss his new form of storytelling and the future of his awesome series.

Going Gagag SE MTAfter the all-seeing eye of Lady Gaga discovered a copy of Michael Troy's comic book tribute Going Gaga! at San Diego Comic-Con, she tweeted, "So cool.  Someone found this at Comic-Con.  Can I buy it?  Pleasssee!!!"

The tweet heard 'round the virtual world had little monsters clamoring to find a copy for Mother Monster and perhaps get their little paws on a copy of their own.  The small indie comic immediately sold out and left everyone wanting more!

SlayerLitThe following is an interview with Shiai Mata, the founder of SlayerLit, which is an online discussion forum for all forms of Joss Whedon-related literature and news.  In this interview, Fanboy Comics' Bryant Dillon talks with Mata about how SlayerLit began, the power of the Whedonverse fans, and whether Spike or Angel should be sacrificed in case of an apocalypse.

This interview was conducted on August 19, 2012.
