Solitaire Rose Radio 60: Artist Jayro Lantigua

Cory was introduced to Jayro’s work on the episode of Kray Z Comics and Stories where they discussed artist who need more attention, and was blown away by his work. It’s unique, interesting and shows influences from outside of comic books and more from 90’s animation. Jayro himself is an interesting person as well, driving himself to work on his art while keeping a full time job because he3 is driven to create.

You’ll be interested in his story and his art as you get to know more about him in the far ranging interview.

Visit him at his website:  http://www.jayrolantigua.com/

Solitaire Rose Radio 59: An Interview with Liz Safian Berube

I told someone earlier this week that while I joking call myself and my podcast a National Treasure, but Liz Safian Berube is the Real Deal and is a bona fide National Treasure. She worked as a colorist for Archie and DC, her own comic strip and countless pages for the DC Romance comics. I sit down with her to talk about her life, her art and all sorts of other things. Most comic book fans don’t know a lot about the type of work she did, so settle in and listen to one of the most interesting people I have ever talked to. I hope you think so too.

The dreaded deadline doom has hit, so we’ve got the last of the Road Trip recordings from their Free Comic Book Day road trip from St Cloud.

Kray Z Comics and Stories 257: Desert Island Comic Strips

If you were stuck on a desert island, what comic strips would your bring to read?

Oh, come on, buy the premise, buy the bit. The BBC has has Desert Island Discs where each week a guest, is asked to choose eight recordings that they would take if they were to be cast away on a desert island. So, we talk about what 5 comic strips would they bring to the same desert island. They also discus:

  • Who is Jin feuding with? Bonus, Cory!! is still feuding with Vince Colletta and he’s still dead.
  • Believe it or not, they stay on topic for the entire section, so there’s not a lot to type here. Which makes me feel sad, since I like having a lot of stuff here. Still…
  • The show is extra long because they stay on topic!
  • JIN BREAKS KAYFABE!
  • Freaking and geeking
  • IT’S AN EXTRA LONG EPISODE.
  • But Jin says it’s good, so it’s all ok.

All of this and the usual shenanigans. Try it, you’ll like it!
