With the release of his Oni graphic novel this week, writer Chad Bowers stops by the subterranean recording lair to give us the pitch, answer some questions, and help us make heads and/or tails of comics hitting your comic shop this April. That’s right -- it’s another look into comics’ future a la Previews. But Chad not only ups the chances of you, the listener, hearing about something new and worth your time/money for April’s comics by about 1,000% (or so; I was told there’d be no math), but he also tells us who the template for Down Set Fight’s main character was, why Scott Kowalchuk is the perfect artist to bring this football-coated action crime goodie to life, and what he and co-writer Chris Sims have planned for another book of theirs hitting the digital stands this week: Subatomic Party Girls #3. We put Chad through the RFT gauntlet; does he make it out alive? Have a listen and find out!
