Catching Up with Voice Actor Kyle Hebert

Kyle Hebert
This past March, I headed over to Jacksonville Collective Con to cover the event for my YouTube Channel. At the Con, I was able to conduct some really neat interviews with some of the guests they had. However, there was one guest that really stood out going into this event - that was none other than famous Voice Actor Kyle Hebert. Being such a fan of his work on Dragon Ball Z and Naruto, let’s just say I was really hoping to speak with him. To my luck, I had the opportunity to speak with Kyle about his extensive career in Professional Voice Acting. Here is an overview of some of the topics we were able to discuss in this interview. Do all the voices come naturally to you? Kyle’s resume and the amount of character voices he’s done over the years is through the roof. With each different character’s...

The Indie Index - Review - Sharkasaurus

The Indie Index - Review - Sharkasaurus
shark1
Sweet baby Jesus, we’re gonna need a bigger buggy. Sharkasaurus is a book that delivers on it’s title and so much more. It’s creationists vs paleontologists vs a prehistoric shark out for blood on a golf course…yes a golf course! Creator, writer, and director Spencer Estabrooks brought Sharkasaurus to life in a 2014 short film. It’s tremor meets jaws premise traveled the festival circuit with bloody success. Estabrooks was not fulfilled by this great short film. His imagination was beyond the budget of a short film and he wanted to tell a bigger story, with a bigger and more diverse cast, and of course with a bigger Sharkasaurus. In June 2016 Estabrooks launched a Kickstarter to fund a Sharkasaurus graphic novel with Tyler Jenkins (Peter Panzerfaust). It didn’t take long for the book to be funded and they moved full steam ahead with the project. Unfortunately, due to Jenkins' success on the Matt Kindt series Grass Kings, he...

The Indie Index - Interview with Jason Pittman

The Indie Index - Interview with Jason Pittman
Mental illness - or Mental Illness, depending on how you envision it - is a topic that has worked its way into the comic book medium, for better or for worse.

rect24976 6 2 6 1 7
The last post got delayed about a week so I thought hold off rather than post within 2 days of eachother. This weeks content: -Work in progress, "playing a game with the audience" -Podcast! want us to talk about your book? -how to write a comic part 4 "how does do panels?" WORK IN PROGRESS "Playing a game with the audience": So I've finished the building which mentioned last post and here it is: I'd have liked to have spent more time in it's design but eventually you just gotta move on... maybe if i need something new I'll give it a renovation.  For me double panels always take a long time to make, some things I meant to add in like other pedestrians, rubbish and debris like barrels and crates just to make the place more lived in... I will probbably put that in during the editing process, let...

The Greatest Comic Book Covers #2 - Detective Comics #27

DetectiveComics27
DetectiveComics27Panel
The Dark Knight Detective has cast a vigilant shadow over the comic book world for over 70 years now! Geek Genie continues its ongoing series with #2 and a look at the first appearance of The Batman in Detective Comics #27!   With those immortal words, The Batman was born. And he's been striking fear into the hearts of criminals ever since.

Bill Finger, assisted by Bob Kane, introduced the story of millionaire Bruce Wayne and his obsessive quest for justice in the guise of his Bat-alter ego.                        As Action Comics #1 had done previously, The Batman leapt off the pages of Detective Comics #27. But this time, instead of a brightly coloured Superman performing miraculous feats of...

The Indie Index - Review - Come Into Me #1

The Indie Index - Review - Come Into Me #1
ComeIntoMeCover2 600x923
Come Into Me is a strange story. I wouldn’t expect anything less from Black Mask Studio. Based on just the premise, it would be enough for me to grab it off the shelf of my local comic store.   From the very first page, I was left wondering what I had gotten myself into by agreeing to give Come Into Me a read. I can hear the rubber gloves snapping, even now. Co-writer Lonnie Nadler described Come Into Me as “imagine if David Cronenberg directed an episode of Black Mirror. It might look something like Come Into Me.” It’s true, that description is 100 percent accurate. The story is horrific, twisted. Come Into Me breaks the chains shackled to the modern conventions of comic books and flips them on their head. Whatever you think about comics will be challenged with this debut issue alone.   By now, everyone should know that...

FALLEN IDOLS "CONCEPTION"

So I'm making another blog post, almost less than a day after the first one I posted but I thought I'd strike while the iron is hot since I'm new here. Thought I'd talk about a few things here today: my work in progress and STEP 1 of making a comic book "conception".   WORK IN PROGRESS: So as you may know, I'm working on a Comic book, specifically the second issue to the one I just published on etsy.com. Currently I'm working on page 3.  keep in mind the first panel is no where near what I'd call complete, but this gives the opportunity to talk about how I do things. Since I'm using Inkscape which is a free version of Illustrator , when I'll draw something, anything really, I'll then save it into a archive library. This library contains ever pose of all characters, backgrounds, animals, plants, furniture,...

The Indie Index - Interview with Theodore Riddle

The Indie Index - Interview with Theodore Riddle
cover2002
I'm just putting it out there that this is the most in-depth interview that I've ever been a part of. Theodore Riddle is a person who clearly knows what he wants and goes for it, tooth and nail. Here's the interview, please enjoy!   Hey Theodore! First things first those those who may not know you, tell us a little about yourself. A misconception about Monolith Comics is that I am a Publisher which I am, but I am mainly a self published artist. Monolith Comics is just the imprint under which I have established my business for tax reasons to self publish my creation entitled Compu-M.E.C.H., Mechanically Engineered and Computerized Hero® and the universe which surrounds the story. I have done all the writing, penciling, inking and lettering of all of my twenty-seven 128 page black and white graphic novels. This has been the effort of twenty years worth...
