Geek Life Podcast ep 83 – Pickman’s Model

April 16, 2014

Pickman's ModelThis week we spotlight Kim Holm’s incredible adaptation of HP Lovecraft’s short story Pickman’s Model. Being big Lovecraft fans around here we jumped at the opportunity to cover Kim’s work. This graphic novel adaptation of one of Lovecraft’s best is totally excellent. Kim’s vision of Pickman’s world is truly something to behold. The thick inky blackness, frayed lines and fevered pitch of his work is an experience you wont want to miss. You can purchase yourself a copy of  Pickman’s Model on IndiePlanet and read it for free on FreeComics.no. Be sure to like Kim’s facebook page facebook.com/DUHHfans.

Geek Life Podcast ep 82 – B-Squad

April 10, 2014

B-SquadThis week the gang spotlights B-Squad from Eben Burgoon (of Eben07 fame). B-Squad follows an A-Team like group of colorful & diverse folks who engage in missions of extreme danger that others would simply turn down. The really interesting part comes from the element of chance Eben has thrown into the mix. In each issue one of the squaddies will perish, chosen at random by the spin of an antique mariner’s gambling token made of whalebone dubbed “The Pequod”. Don’t get too attached too the team in this hilarious comedy, because it’s anyone’s guess who’s next on the chopping block (even Eben doesn’t know!). Masterfully illustrated by Lauren Monardo, this book is so very worth your attention. Check out BSquadComic.com to read more and purchase yourself a copy! Be sure to follow Eben on Twitter @EraserNubs & like the B-Squad facebook page at facebook.com/BSquadComic.
