Robots From Tomorrow! (interview)

Rounding out our coverage of New York Comic Con 2013 is this trio of interviews with Tony Fleecs, Corrina Bechko, and Gabriel Hardman. Greg managed to squirrel away a few minutes with each of these creators to find out what they have worked on that you should check out, and what they have coming up for you to look out for. It turned out to be quite the Noah's Ark of an episode, as talk ranged from the My Little Pony juggernaut to Planet of the Apes to Kinski (which is named after a dog, not the actor). Throw in some non-porn porn, dastardly doings in San Francisco, and a special guest appearance by Ron Marz for a you-are-there experience like no other podcast brings you!

2000AD crossed the pond to attend New York Comic Con last week, and Robots From Tomorrow was there to greet them! Mike got a chance to talk with Simon Fraser and Andy Diggle, while Greg chatted up with Ian Edginton and PR droid Michael Molcher. Names were dropped, secrets were revealed, and insights into 2000AD stories past and present were given. From their lips to your ears, we are pleased to bring you over an hour of audio goodness from Tharg's favorite earthlets (and for those of you who don't know who that is, all will be explained within...)!

Simon Fraser- 1:51

Ian Edginton- 8:02

It's just been announced that IDW Publishing has brought in Tom Scioli to create a brand-new Transformers/G.I. Joe comic. We talk about what it's like to be handed the reigns to such iconic licences, as well as what he plans to bring to the title in terms of art and narrative. With the long-running G0dland coming to a close, and Transformers/G.I. Joe on the horizon, we also take the time to talk about Tom's career as a whole. He's an artist who seems to always push his art in new directions, experimenting with line and color to deliver different types of stories in different ways. We're excited for what he's got in store for the Joes and the Autobots, and after this talk, you will be too!
