Geek Life Podcast ep 90 – Father Robot

July 16, 2014

Father RobotThis week we talk about the exciting new sci fi comic Father Robot. In his fascinating vision of the future Kristopher White shows us a world with no more casualties in war, where remotely operated robots fight our battles for us and there is no loss of human life. But when one side changes things up and actually attacks a civilian city while simultaneously launching a surprise ambush on troops in the field, a soldier disobeys orders to save his family and is ripped from the control chamber as his robot falls lifeless to the ground on the field of battle… or does he? Written by Kristopher White and illustrated by Sam Garland with color by Jennifer Gosk, this comic is one to pay attention to and is definitely worth a read. Keep up to date on all things Father Robot at FatherRobot.com, and see Kristopher’s other projects at FossilCreekProductions.com.

Geek Life Podcast ep 88 – Hybrid Earth

June 25, 2014

Hybrid EarthThis week we talk about the exciting new indie comic Hybrid Earth by Rustin Petrae and Frederick Allison Jr. In December of 2015 the nano-bomb was created, fusing nuclear and nano technology together. The first, and last bomb, was detonated into Earth’s atmosphere. When the irradiated nanomachines came back down, they merged humans with machines. Years later society is divided into two groups, the humans and the hybrids. Hybrids are people effected by the nanomachines, their bodies combining with technology in unique ways. Xander Hastings is a police officer charged with investigating a series of missing hybrid cases in this neo-noire cyberpunk comic. We enjoyed reading it and you will too!
