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!

HTP Episode 051 – Dr. Erin Macdonald Returns!


Dr. Erin MacDonald returns from her earlier appearance in Episode 13. This time around, we discuss her audiobook “The Science of Sci-Fi“, and pick apart how String Theory applies to DC comics, and how Star Trek tackled the artificial gravity problem. Then we REALLY have some fun and try to apply science to the literal unknown… and it’s a good thing we’re both fans of The X-Files!

Here’s where you can check out Erin’s work:
