We have two interviews for you today; separated by years but united by the common thread of Hollywood and comics. But not comic book movies so much as comics from movie people.
First up is Greg's talk with actor/director/comedian/writer Dan Fogler. You'll recognize Dan from "Balls of Fury", "Fanboys", "Take Me Home Tonight", "Hannibal", or "Secrets & Lies", but what you might not know about Dan is that he's written some comics as well. Two volumes of "Moon Lake" have been released by Archaia so far, but he's currently Kickstarting his new project, "Brooklyn Gladiator". They talked about that, what books Dan is currently reading (and there are a LOT of them), what it's like being behind the camera as well as in front of it, and more. Dan also tells just who he passed a joint to at the SNL 40th Anniversary Party, so this one's got something for everyone.
If that wasn't enough for you, then Greg's unearthed 2013 talk with writer/director Chad Crawford Kinkle should do the trick. This interview, presumed lost in a hard drive crash, has him talking with Chad about the filmmaker's then-current indie horror movie "Jug Face". Chad lifts the curtain on what goes in to making a film on a reduced budget that still delivers big budget entertainment. They also talk about Chad's comic work, including his graphic novel "Harpe", about the two brothers who were America's first serial killers...back in the 18th century! Greg and Chad talk horror in all forms, and a whole lot more.
