This May Be Overkill: The World of CassynoPosted by: Kyle Overkill


842424a18fcf6fddd9f7becebbcff099_large

In a recent search to discover when I could get my hands on a comic by Austin Wilson and Logan FaerberRe.Pro.Duct, I discovered the publishing company Magnetic Press. I made this discovery not by my brilliance but Austin telling me they were going to publish his comic. I of course was pumped and decided to check out Magnetic Press to see what else they were going to put out. It was then I discovered someone was hiding some really amazing shit from me for a while. Every book the company has scheduled for preorder looks amazing and they have a lot more unannounced to be excited about. One of those books due for release soon is Naja . This has been translated and is being put out by Magnetic Press. It is drawn by french artist Bengal. Who if you are not familiar with I suggest you make yourself very familiar with. I mention all this because a Kickstarter is now live called The World of Cassyno which features art, characters and world created by Bengal.

One Shot Interview: Chris RobersonPosted by: Kyle Overkill


We recently talked to Paul Maybury about his work on the new Image book Sovereign. When the book was released we raved about the first issue on the cast. So it is only natural they we (Kyle) reached out to the writer of the book itself Chris Roberson. Most should be familiar with the enormous catalog of great works by Chris (Mysterious Strangers, izombie, Edison Rex, and the list goes on) and the guy also co founded Monkey Brain Comics which puts out the industries best digital titles. It was an amazing honor to talk to Chris who not only was a great guy but also has a great knowledge and history of comic books. We said it before and will say it again, it is a mistake to not pick up Sovereign. I would also like to point out Mysterious Strangers is a sensational comic and feels like taking in a breath of awesomeness of comic book nostalgia. Of course check out whatever Monkey Brain puts out and thank you as always for listening and takes so much to Chris for talking to us!

THIS MAY BE OVERKILL: AUSTIN WILSON BRINGS RE.PRO.DUCT TO LIFEPosted by: Kyle Overkill

Like most Americans I spend a lot of my time at work not doing work but going down lots of internet holes. I love looking for new comic books, new writers and new artists. A while back I feel in love with Logan Faerber’s artwork. I was trying to find something he had done that I was able to purchase and get grubby little nerd hands on. I continued to follow him for a while and foundSix Barrel Shotgun which he did with writer Austin Wilson and I loved it. I had been waiting and waiting for an actually copy of their next work Re.Pro.Duct to come out so I could put it on my shelf and show it to anyone who came over. I eventually reached out to Austin who was just about to announce that Magnetic Press would be publishing Re.Pro.Duct. I was super ecstatic and lucky enough to get to talk to Austin about the book and his work on it. Make sure when the time comes to pick up Re.Pro.Duct and I highly suggest reading Six Barrel Shotgun which is available on comixology. Austin will also be joining us on The Death of Comics cast this week and does an amazing podcast of his own. Thanks so much again to Austin and don’t miss out on Re.Pro.Duct from Austin and Logan! Interview after the jump....

THIS MAY BE OVERKILL: HEADING OUT WEST WITH MATTHEW ROBERTS

tumblr_mzx6guzb5F1sfxeiho3_1280

Manifest Destiny is the classic what if story. What if the adventures of Lewis and Clark were more than just mapping and documenting the newly acquired territory for the United States government but what if the things they found out there were things fair greater and deadlier than anyone could of expected. Manifest Destiny reads like an colonial expedition. With each new encounter the reader just like the characters are experiencing and processing every moment. There is danger and adventure around every page. Artist Matthew Roberts brings Manifest Destiny to life with his beautifully realized landscapes, creative monsters and genuine characters. Matthew Roberts was nice enough to answer some questions about Manifest Destiny, his process and what he thinks the true name of the buffalo Minotaur should be. Thanks so much to Matt and make sure to check out Manifest Destiny whether it be singles or the upcoming Volume one trade.
