Ep. 123: S.P.A.C.E. & Jim Lawson


This week we give you our awesome interview with the legendary Jim Lawson. Those of you who don't know him, Jim is a comic book artist/writer who worked on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for about 20+ years and is the creator of the character "The Rat King" from the Turtles series. He also co-created the series "Planet Racers" along with Peter Laird (one of the creators of TMNT). He is the writer/artist of the comic series Paleo: Tales of the Late Cretateous and Jim also funded another series called "Dragonfly" a couple years ago.

This past weekend we tried our hand at having a table at our first con. We attended S.P.A.C.E. (Small Press and Alternative Comic Expo). It was quite the experience.

We reached out to AA88 Press and Think Alike Productions to see if they would like to have some of the titles we have showcased on our show to get some exposure in our area. AA88 Press are from the New Jersey area and Think Alike Productions are from Florida. They both agreed and sent us a bunch of titles to sell. We also got a nice suprise, one of the writers from Think Alike Productions, Richard Rivera (creator of Stabbity Bunny, Wild Bull & Chipper) flew up to check out the convention and meet us. Along with Richard came Wayne Hall . Wayne is a fellow podcaster (Wayne's Comic Podcast) and an editor/proofer on numerous TAP books. The weekend was great other than the terrible snowy April weather we had. We were able spread the word on the awesome titles we had to sell, but most of all we met tons of great comic fans and creators. Keep an eye and ear out because we will be having these creators on the show. Keep listening folks!
