HTP Episode 160 – Zach Howard

Zach Howard is a comic book illustrator who has worked for Marvel, DC, and IDW… but his current project is an Image collaboration called Moonshine Bigfoot. A swamp-dwelling Sasquatch embarks on a high-speed adventure when his latest batch of hootch gets the attention of… someone powerful! Zach and I agree it’s kind of ‘Dukes of Hazzard Meets X-Files’.

We also get into some pretty creator-centric chat about the importance of crowdfunding to indie comic projects, and how ideas like this are going to keep the comics hobby healthy as it changes in the 21st century.

Be sure to check out the Kickstarter for Moonshine Bigfoot! If you can’t get to it in time, grab it after the fact!

You can follow Zach on Instagram, Facebook, and his official website.

HTP Episode 159 – Brad Hornbacher

Brad Hornbacher wrote the classic MST3k episodeWerewolf‘, but today spends a lot of his time with his band, Civil Defiance. Brad graces us with many stories about the creation of the movie, ranging from is origins as a Russian epic to is relocation to Flagstaff, Arizona, and the wild ambitions of the film’s producer and co-writer, Tony Zarindast. Turns out, Brad and I see the world of film (and how people bond over the more unique gems) in very similar ways. We close the discussion talking about Civil Defiance’s video for Eye of the Dog.

Be sure to follow Civil Defiance on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter and check out their BandCamp page!
