Ep. 35 ~ Paul Eiding Interview (Comic Book Writer – Blastosaurus, & Voice/Actor – Incredibles 2, Transformers, Ben 10…)

Caught up with one of our best comic con friends, Paul Eiding, to chat about his latest projects!! Chatted about his voice acting role as Reflux in Incredibles 2, working with his family and theatre friends to make massively viral videos (and fund raise for LA park conservation projects!), and the highs and lows of his venture into the world of comic book writing on Blastosaurus, with New Zealand artist, Richard Fairgray.

We also spoke briefly about his voice acting role as Perceptor in the original Transformers cartoons, as Grandpa Max on Ben 10, and his work in video games such as Snake from Metal Gear Solid, the ‘Vault-Tec’ guy from Fallout, the ‘arrow to the knee’ guy from Skyrim, the ‘construct additional pylons’ guy from Starcraft etc etc etc (too many to mention in one pod!). Forgot to chat about his role as Pa Kent in upcoming DC animated movie The Death of Superman… oops, hopefully he will let us call him back another time soon!!

Was lovely to catch up, and we very much appreciated Paul taking time out of his busy schedule to chat to us about all his exciting creative projects!!

Ep. 20 ~ Gary Chaloner Interview ~ ACAF 2018

Happy Easter AND Happy Birthday to Aussie comic book legend, Gary Chaloner!!

Paul and I sat down with Gary at ACAF to have a chat about his life in art/comics, going way back to his early art school years, newspaper strip ‘Jeff Little the Smiling Policeman’, his run with imprint Cyclone Comics, learning on the go with the development of the direct comic book market in Australia, Jackaroo, working for publishers in the US, work with Ashley Wood (Judge Dredd, Medieval Spawn, Zombies vs Robots), Darkhorse Downunder – Aussie anthology, work/life/family balance, web comics, and his work with Will Eisner.

There is some wonderful wisdom in this one for anyone working in the comic book industry, especially in Australia, including creating networks to get work, rolling on from project to project, practice makes perfect, talent will only get you so far, and as you already know, you need determination, drive, and a partner who is willing to help make those tough life decisions.

Thanks again, Gary!
Hope you are having a great birthday, look forward to talking to you again soon!

Alien Exchange: ‘Art of Tristan Jones’ Panel Recap

Well-deserved praise is rolling in for Tristan Jones’ comic work on his dream project, Alien: Defiance, yet he refuses to call himself an artist. During his ‘Art of Tristan Jones’ panel at last weekend’s Australian Comic Arts Festival in Canberra, he shared some stories about the process of working with major studios and licensed properties, his love of the Alien franchise, speaking to Ridley Scott though representatives, artistic process on the book, and struggles with comic store communication.

Aussie Comic Book Secrets Revealed at ACAF

There seems to have been some trepidation from some comic fans in taking a chance on a ‘first-time’ event, fears which have proven to be completely unfounded. While the numbers were slightly lower than expected, what the attendees lacked in volume, they make up for in enthusiasm and passion. They had a willingness to utilise the festival’s unique opportunities to absorb as much of the knowledge that decades of good, bad and ugly experience had bestowed upon the plethora of artists and writers in residence. While I did not make it to a lot of panels (as I was hosting in other areas), the snippets of the few I was able to sit in on were well researched and informative, with feedback from participants being highly positive.  Continue reading “Aussie Comic Book Secrets Revealed at ACAF”
