Happy 1When I first found out that my awesome friend Darick Robertson would be joining up with Grant Morrison to make Image Comics' title Happy!, I was ecstatic. Transmetropolitan remains my current favorite graphic series of all time, and Happy! is already shaping up to be just as amazing a piece of art and literature.


As you guys know, I contact a friend of mine who has made it in the indie comic book industry to sit down for one inspirational interview a month, and I am beyond Happy! to have Darick Robertson as my featured Indie and the Geek creator for October.

Hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did.


The Legacy CoverI sat down with Forrest Rawls, writer of the comic book The Legacy, for my latest indie interview here on Indie and the Geek!

Dancing with the Stars
has kicked off its hundred and fifty-seventh season, this time in the form of an all-star version. (Apparently, there is a limit to the number of celebrities willing to don gay apparel and wiggle it, just a little bit, for the prime time audience at large.)

I'm tuning in 'till past favorites Pamela Anderson and Kirstie Alley get kicked off.  Hey!  I'm a loyal fanboy,  I was one of the 5 people who saw Barb Wire in the theater. The only one not wearing a trench coat, albeit, but present nonetheless.

Which brings us to Kirstie Allie.

In the penultimate episode of Books & S--t Season 1, Brian and Sam welcome author Eric Brach, a professor at Cal Lutheran who is co-authoring the memoir of Billy McGill, former #1 NBA draft pick, to be published by University of Nebraska Press.  It's a menage a trois of banter, drunkenness, and heavy petting as we discuss celebrity authors, the delicate art of writing biographies, and what YOU can do to help save the tragically endangered CA Boose!

This is the episode Brian has been waiting for!  Finally, we drink the Stout that heals the soul, the sweet nectar of St. James' Gate, Dublin's pride, Guinness!  And, making the show even more special, we welcome Jason Enright, Founder and Publisher of WE Comics.  In this episode, we talk about The Millions' list of difficult books, their merits, their flaws, and why exactly they're so damned hard to read.  We also talk to Jason about the starting his own company and his favorite literary genre, all while getting very drunk on Guinness.

Sophia Grace MTLet me here you say boom da boom boom da boom da bay-bee . . .

When one thinks of a beautiful, round-faced British singer with a booming voice, one wouldn't be too far off to guess that one may be referring to Adele; however, the cherubic, little songstress I'm here to discuss is Sophia Grace.

Don't touch Books & S--t or you'll get burned, as Brian and Sam drink their way through another amazing episode, this time welcoming special guest Joe LeFavi, transmedia guru and Founder and Ambassador of Awesome of Quixotic Transmedia.  They discuss recent food-based news stories, namely the True Blood cookbook and the decision that Chicken Soup for the Soul will actually make soup.  The trio also drunkenly debates the changing face of entertainment consumption, the potential of transmedia, and the author Joe LeFavi would most like to have an affair with.

Kitty and BatzHello, all! Welcome to another issue of Indie and the Geek.  This week I sat down with Richard Zerga and Kristi “Batz” Zerga to discuss their upcoming indie works this September and their very own indie publisher. Here’s how it all went down.  


Wonder Ellen MT"When you're alone,
And life is making you lonely,
You can always go downtown.
When you've got worries,
All the noise and the hurry,
Seem to help, I know, downtown . . ."

So go the lyrics to Petula Clark's famous pick-me-up song, "Downtown," and the same could be said about Ellen DeGeneres' feel-good afternoon talk show.  If you lost your job, your car won't start, or your freakin' hairdresser cut your bangs too short, Ellen can turn all of that around.
