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!!

Ask at your local (Aussie) comic book shop about adding the latest Blastosaurus Comics to your pull list… http://www.acecomics.com.au/blastosaurus-0

A prequel issue of the all-new series that was New Zealand’s top-selling indy comic for the last 10 years! The story set up the full series and gives readers insights into the unique relationship between a mutant triceratops and two little kids. Together they battle and befriend an octopus and a ghost, save a man and everyone in Freak Out City from a newly opened alien portal. It’s just another day in the life of our detective hero, Blastosaurus! (Credits: (W) Richard Fairgray, Paul Eiding (A/CA) Richard Fairgray ) – Previews World May 2018

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!
