Steele and Scavenger drink beer and interview Pat Killik, creator of the acclaimed new independent comic, Shepperton’s Waltz. He discusses process, ideas, the artistry, and what it takes to create your own comic book and comic book company! Plus, upcoming comics and his search for new artists.

This week, Queerkateers, the boys get a little tipsy and a little loud (seriously, keep your finger near the volume control, you’ll need it) as they discuss the ongoing battle of digital vs hard-copy comics. Listen to Joe, John, Tony, PattyBoom and stevieD as the beer flows and the conversation gets nearly intolerable!
Digital comics are the way of the future, but there’s still a lot of love for paper in the hearts of these venerable fanboys.
In this episode, stevieD and Eric catch up with one of their favorite queer indie creators, Zan Christensen (Mark of Aeacus; Prism Comics) who was gracious enough to call us from WonderCon in San Francisco to let us know how it was going. Zan even shares with us who won this year’s Prism Comics Queer Press Grant (click on the link for details on how you can enter!). stevie then gets Ipad envy which leads to a discussion about digital comics and we round out the show with a call from another favorite queer indie creator Brian Andersen (So Super Duper)
