Indie Comic Artist Interview: Katherine Wirick
I’m writing this from New Orleans, the land of dreams and nightmares. I’m going to be posting about my time here later in the week
In the meantime, allow me to introduce you to an amazing artist and writer, Katherine Wirick. A few weeks ago, I attended S.P.A.C.E. con, an Indie Comic-Con convention. Katherine’s work drew me in because she published a whole graphic novel in an impressive, painting size piece of art. When I took time to read her work, No One is Safe, I cried. The story is about Katherine telling about her father’s role as an eye witness to the Kent State massacre.
Indie Comic Interview: Jacob Warrenfeltz
As readers of Geek Goes Rogue know, I went to S.P.A.C.E. Indie Comic Con in Columbus, Ohio a few weeks ago. I had the chance to meet some fantastic artists and I want to introduce them to you.
Jacob and I had a great conversation about his just released comic, Villains Galore. The comic is based on the question: what happens when villains try to go straight? I love the idea, and loved the comic. You will too.
Storytelling is Serious Business
This morning, my work required a small trip to meet with one of my staff. I turned on the local sports talk radio which was broadcasting the Colin Cowherd show.
Colin is a bit of a jerk. Okay, not kinda, he is one. He makes fun of losers, hates “fly over country,” and basically shows his behind on a daily basis. But, today, he said something I’ve heard too many times from friends and my Christian friends as well.
The Indie Comic Adventure
For a time, I resisted calling myself a writer. The simple reason for this is I felt writer is closely connected with artist. I didn’t feel like I was an artist. Artists seemed to lack any joy in their work. Even more strange, they almost felt insulted if people LIKED their work or somehow identified with it. Kurt Cobain is a prime example of this. He could never understood why his work got so popular. Tragically, he couldn’t deal with it. And it’s not just Kurt. Artistic history is full of people who just couldn’t deal with the fame or sudden popularity. They took drugs, had as much sex as they could and drove their lives over a cliff. The whole fun of being an artist, creating things, often gets thrown into the skubulos heap.
Tales of Women who Kick Ass...
A disclaimer before I start. I’m not a woman. So, it’s safe to say I have no idea what it means to be a woman. Yes, I read Jane Austen, but that’s about as close as I get to exploring my feminine side. I make this statement because I’m about to give my opinion on a woman’s issue. That fills me with fear and trembling as I have no wish to be sexist or condescending. I’m not claiming any moral superiority or authority to change things. I’m just giving my opinion as an “outsider.”
The Adventure of G.K. Chesterton and The Penny Dreadfuls
Since Geek Goes Rogue started, I’ve been overwhelmed by the response. Geeks of all stripes are coming out of the woodwork and thanking me. I’m really floored by the thank-yous. The comment highlight came from the editor of a major online magazine telling me, “I really admire you and what you’re doing. It’s much needed.”
Why the next C.S. Lewis MUST be a Geek.
Today, I had a great conversation with a college student and a campus minister about Geek culture. The student and I became “geek” teachers to my friend. He didn’t really grasp what a geek might be or why it might be important to know. We argued how “geek” is the main language of pop culture and influences more than people comprehend. Three hours later, we realized something important; the next C.S. Lewis needs to be a geek.
