Hey there Hall H Show listeners, Aaron Nabus here and on behalf of my co-host, Alex Benedicto, thank you so much for tuning in!
At WonderCon 2019, I was originally supposed to talk with my good friend and multiple guest of the show, screenwriter and comic book creator, Rylend Grant to talk about the second arc of his current comic book, Aberrant and his new one, called Banjax, both of which are published by Action Lab.
It was a welcome surprise to see Steven Prince, the writer, artist and creator of Rylend’s favorite comic book, Monster Matador, show up to the podcast too with Rylend!
Turns out, they collaborated on something called Tales From the World of Monster Matador.
It was an interesting conversation, hearing about how Steven is more of an improvisational writer whereas Rylend is more structured, but they were still able to find a unified voice.
The new arc of Aberrant, a story that is sort of like the TV show 24 but with superpowers, will be five issues and issue six should be in stores right now. Rylend also gives us an update on the TV development deal for Aberrant. If you are looking to catch up on the first arc, you can pre-order the trade paperback which includes issues one through five on Amazon.
He also touches on Banjax which is in previews right now and is slated to drop in June of 2019, which Rylend describes as Death Wish meets The Watchmen.
Steven brings us up to date on Monster Matador, which also includes the creation of a theme song!
We also talk about building fanbases, different approaches to comic publishing, the importance of the Meltdown Comics community and more.
It’s always fun hanging and talking with Rylend and Steven and I really appreciate them for coming on the show at WonderCon. Enjoy!
