IDEAS DON'T BLEED episode eighty-six | Zac Thompson, part two

Chapter 171: What about that one?


This week, we’re joined once again by Zac Thompson (The Dregs / Cable) as we discuss his comics origins, his background in journalism, his upcoming Dark Horse series Into the Unbeing, 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.



Hope your Monday is going well and you’re not too hung over from seeing The Phantom Menace in theaters 30 times this weekend. Lots of folks chimed in to let me know they enjoyed part I of our chat with Zac, so we decided to release part II. And, as before, it’s never too late to head to the comic shop and grab Zac’s new books like CEMETERY KIDS DON’T DIE, BLOW AWAY, and the upcoming INTO THE UNBEING. You won’t regret it. Or maybe you will. I don’t actually know you that well. But I like them and that has to count for something, right?

As a little side not, our friends over at Midtown Comics are having a big 50% off sale on selected graphic novels today. Does that include some of mine? Sure does! If you’re looking for any of these you should snatch them up before they’re all gone. Here are links to some books you might have missed-

BATMAN: HOUSES OF GOTHAM Hardcover. Me, Fernando Blanco, and Jordie Bellaire explore the life of a little boy that fell through the cracks of Gotham. I’m really proud of this one, so if you missed it grab it on the cheap now.

THE JOKER: PUZZLEBOX Hardcover. Me and some of the best artists in comics take you on a murder mystery in 14 parts as told by comics most unreliable narrator. This is a fun one.

WE CAN NEVER GO HOME Paperback. My first creator owned book, made with the amazing Josh Hood and co. Teenagers with strange abilities find themselves on the run. If you’ve ever liked anything I wrote, I’d ask you to check this one out. And it’s only $5, which is kinda of wild.

WHAT’S THE FURTHEST PLACE FROM HERE? vol. 1 and WHAT’S THE FURTHEST PLACE FROM HERE? vol. 2 Paperbacks. These one’s are only 15% off, but it’s still a great value if you haven’t grabbed ‘em. Vol. 3 drops in September so get your bookshelves ready now.

I know that folks are also still looking for some of the WTFPFH? 7”s. Midtown has the 2nd printings of #4 and #6 here and here. Get ‘em while you can.

Anyway, that’s about it for me. Here’s a picture of the Potato being sleepy.

Stay safe. Take care of each other. Who here actually went to see The Phantom Menace this weekend?
