Making Comics Gutter Talk Episode 13 – Re-Issue #1 (Daniel Lieske)

Before there was Gutter Talk, and as crazy as it sounds there was life before Gutter Talk, Jason Brubaker released numerous podcasts of his own and published them on Making Comics (dotCom) 1.0. When the baton was passed to Patrick Yurick and the gang, there was some concern Jason’s podcasts would end up lost, never to be heard from again, like that one sock that gets eaten by the drier. Or something. Well, the intent to re-release these amazing conversations with even more amazing artists was there from the beginning of Making Comics (dotCom) 2.0. We just needed to grow into our ears a little bit and figure out how to walk. Now that we no longer seem to be having gravity issues, it just seemed like the right time to re-release Jason’s podcasts.

This is the first re-issue of many to come with Jason Brubaker. In this episode, Jason’s guest and sometimes co-host Daniel Lieske.

Making Comics Gutter Talk Episode 12 – Shelley Couvillion

“Not only does the world have young geniuses but it also has old masters,” says Shelley Couvillion, artist for Storyforge Productions. Subscribe to it or not, that can be one heck of a realization to come to when you’re in the early stages of your art and comic creation career. And that’s not even counting the starving part. Shelley, though, doesn’t seem to be fazed by it. In fact, even though she’s still working on finding her voice, it’s pretty obvious she’s definitely on her way and when she does fully find it, well, let’s just hope she remembers the little people.

Adam is joined in consecutive weeks by Kevin as they sit down with Shelley, another Storyforger, to discuss the good, the bad, and the wow-I-can’t-believe-I-said-that.
