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

Jana & Jess at Free Comic Book Day 2017

*** Heart of Millyera is the first webcomic by Jess Cate and Jana Hoffmann. The story began in 2014, when Jana and Jess were discussing their mutual love for mystical sea-beasties. Millyera was born out of a fascination with the mysterious universe that dwells in the deepest oceans. The world of The Colonies sprung up out of our desire to create a comic with a setting that is both steam-punk, and yet proudly Australian. Milly and her friends are a team of adventurous, misfit geniuses, who we hope will win your hearts.

Heart of Millyera is an epic undertaking, which will carry you out of the depths of the ocean, across deserts, through the dusty streets of bustling towns, across the seas on trade ships, and out into the recesses of space. I am not sure that we can squeeze any more adventure in, but we will sure as hell try! Check out page 1 below, and make sure to head over to the website for more Heart of Millyera***

*many apologies for the technical difficulties (which you will hear a ding ding noise where it has been cut together and the robot voices taken out!) still learning about the audio over here!! Many thanks to the ladies for sticking with me while I figured it all out!! ~ABx
