When thinking about today's guest, the word one would keep coming back to is "buzz", like the hum of a amplifier just turned on and waiting for its first power chord. His work refuses to stay in any one medium, be it prose, comics, podcasts, or music. His latest work is the second half of his comic Serious Creatures looking at the life of a teenage special effects wizard. He has all the right cultural touchstones in his work to stand out from the crowd to me, and his art is vibrant, kinetic, and as bursting at the seams as his creative pursuits would indicate. He is Tony McMillen, and on this episode he chats with Greg about his work, the challenges of dealing in analogues, the hirsute Rob Bottin, collaboration with others, the genius of John Carpenter, and a lot more.
