WELCOME BACK TO IDEAS DON’T BLEED!
This week, we’re joined once again by Declan Shalvey (Moon Knight / Time Before Time) as we discuss his career, his transition into writing comics, and his Image series Old Dog!
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.
Well, we did it. Our 30th podcast. And to think my high school guidance counselor said I should take a job in politics or big business because I was “really brilliant and gifted” and I could “change the world.” Proved you wrong, Mr. Pibblewick. Who is smart now?
A tiny update on Ashcan Press stuff- I was supposed to have a big “secret project” update over the weekend but life stuff got in the way, so we had to push that back a few days. But it is coming. I promise. In the meantime, here’s part II of our chat with the wonderful Declan Shalvey. If you missed part I you can find it here. Or, if you’re more visually inclined, you can watch it on the Youtubes, since this was a livestream we taped a bit ago. While you’re checking it out you should like and subscribe. But actually we don’t seem to update our Youtubes anymore. I think that’s because Griffin has become addicted to STAR WARS: SUPER BOMBAD RACING and has no time for it, but I don’t know. Am I the keeper of the Super Bombad Boiz? (No. That’s Ryan Stegman.)
And if you enjoy our chat, or even if you don’t, you should head out and grab Declan’s great books like OLD DOG and TIME BEFORE TIME. Plus, on April 26th he is taking over writing ALIEN for Marvel Comics. So make sure to head to your local comic shop and beg them to get you a copy.
And of course sign up for his newsletter here because I’m not going to keep updating you on all things Declan. That’s not my job.
Speaking of other people’s stuff, friend of this here newsletter Charles Soule (8 BILLION GENIES / STAR WARS) has an awesome new project on Kickstarter you should be checking out. Besides making great comics, Charles is quite an acclaimed novelist these days and he has a new one coming out soon called THE ENDLESS VESSEL. You can and should preorder it now.
Charles doesn’t like to just do things partway. And that’s what putting out a novel is really, if you think about it. So he is putting out TWO novels! THE CHRONICLES OF THE LAZARENE is a separate companion novel that is only available from Kickstarter.
If you already bought The Endless Vessel or want to get it at your local shop, you can just get a copy of the exclusive book here. And if you haven’t bought either yet, you can get both on Kickstarter. And not just regular editions. Fancy pants editions! Nice hardcovers! Cool bonus art! Maps! You can have it all! So go back this project and get yourself some nice beach reads.
That’s it for me.
Stay safe. Take care of each other. Try saying “Lazarene” out loud. It’s fun.
