IDEAS DON'T BLEED episode forty-nine | Leah Williams, part one

Chapter 134: Hey! Hey!


This week, we’re joined by Leah Williams (X-Factor / The Amazing Mary Jane) as we discuss her comics origins, the pitfalls of social media, her new DC Comics series Power Girl, and more!

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.


Hey there.

We’re back again for another episode of our little podcast. This one was a little chaotic. Leah wins all the points for being a trooper and doing the show at a not great point in time for her. And she was, as you’ll here, as great a guest as can be. I on the other hand thought I was going to have to fly across country and deal with a lot of dumb stuff so I was grumpy. Does that dynamic make for a good episode? Only you can answer that.

In the meantime, hopefully you all picked up the great POWER GIRL SPECIAL #1 that marks the start of Leah’s time writing Power Girl. And hopefully you loved it a lot and will be preordering the series from your local comic shop right now.

Power Girl #1
Fuck that yacht!

In addition to reading Leah’s books, you can sign up for her newsletter here. That would be nice.

If listening to me ramble on in our podcast about conventions and milk wasn’t enough for you, I was also recently a guest on the cryptically titled UP YOURS… WITH MORE! Podcast.

Up Yours...With More! The UP, UP & AWAY Comic Shop Podcast

This was a fun interview that really served as a good reminder how wildly unprofessional I am on my own podcast. If you want to hear me talk about my origin, JOKER, WILDC.A.T.S. and WHAT’S THE FURTHEST PLACE FROM HERE? than give it a listen at any of these spots-

Not only is it a fun show, but it is run by a very excellent comic shop in Cincinnati- Up Up & Away Comics. Not only do they have 2 excellent locations, but they do mailorder around the world. So if you’re looking to buy some comics show them some love. If you order from them there is a 50/50 chance they pack your books in Skyline Chili Cheese to help make sure they don’t get damaged on the way to you.

Skyline Chili – Menu (Ways, Coneys, Fries, Wraps, Burritos and More)
I like cheese and all, but c’mon now…

That’s about it for me. I’ll just give you the friendly reminder that WHAT’S THE FURTHEST PLACE FROM HERE? vol. 2 and WILDC.A.T.S. vol. 1 are in comic shops this week and your life would be a lot better if you bought them.

Stay safe. Take care of each other. Lotta dairy this week, huh?
