IDEAS DON'T BLEED episode twenty | Christopher Sebela, part two
Chapter 94: And no transmissions were made!
WELCOME BACK TO IDEAS DON’T BLEED!
This week, we’re joined once again by Christopher Sebela (Crowded / Blink) as we discuss his career, his process, and his new Vault series GODFELL!
IDB is an all-new weekly podcast presented by Ashcan Press and featuring Matthew Rosenberg, the Supple Boiz, and wonderful guests from the world of comic books!
Our theme song is “Where’s the Poison” by Summer People.
This always feels good. We’re gonna start this one off with a correction. Remember how in a previous email I said that the excellent new “Journey into the Jungle” horror series BREATH OF SHADOWS was on final order cutoff today? Of course you do. I sent that email like 14 hours ago or something. Well, eagle-eyed reader Brandon Schatz pointed out that I was off… By about a month. Turns out the book isn’t on FOC this week because I totally missed that. It is actually in stores this week. Whoops!
Remember how I talked about how important it is to preorder and how much it helps a new series, even though it means a little more work for you, the reader? Well, good news/bad news. You don’t get to preorder this one. You blew it. I will take a little bit of responsibility for that. Maybe 30-35%. Maybe 40%. But the good news? You don’t have to preorder the book at all! You can just stroll into your local comic shop on Wednesday and grab a copy! So my colossal stupidity just saved you some trouble. Really, if you think about it, I’m the hero here.
Anyway, apologies to Rich and Alex. Make sure to grab their excellent book this week. And extra thanks to Brandon for pointing out my faux pas. Brandon is not only the co-owner of the excellent comic shop VARIANT EDITION COMICS + GAMES in Alberta, but he writes a really good newsletter on the happenings in the world of comics from the retail perspective. Check it out.
Anyway, here is part two of our interview with the amazing Christopher Sebela as we discuss all things comics, including his excellent new seres GODFELL, which is also coming out very soon. Give it a listen.
And just a reminder I will be on WORD BALLOON tonight at 7pm EST and you can watch along here-
And tomorrow night at 6pm EST I’m interviewing the brilliant Declan Shalvey (OLD DOG / TIME BEFORE TIME / MOON KNIGHT) over on our Youtube channel. Send in your questions for Declan here or come hang out at the livestream and ask him live on air!
That’s it for me.
Stay safe. Take care of each other. Own up to your mistakes.
