Solitaire Rose Radio 72: A Chat with the Casefile Arkham Crew

It’s the return of Solitaire Rose Radio, and we have our Three favorite returning champions on the show. Writer Josh Finney, Artist Patrick McEvoy and Editor Kat Rocha are here to talk about their second Casefile Arkham book “Her Blood Runs Cold”, the second Hank Flynn P.I. Story which combines Lovecraftian horror with 40’s detective noir for a story that we gave a GLOWING review of on Kray Z Comics and Stories a month or so ago.

It’s a wide ranging conversation on everything from the process of creating the book, why people are still scared by Lovecraft and how 01 Publishing is working hard to earn their Motto: No Safe Spaces.

Especially when the Elder Gods are involved.

You can buy the book at : http://01publishing.com/
