EP 05 - Glamorella's Daughter with Charles Martin & Brandy Williams
Link to Kickstarter Campaign: https://bit.ly/3q2DCr2 or Search "Glamorella's Daughter" @ Kickstarter.com Episode 05 gets superheroic with Charles Martin & Brandy Williams as we talk new original series Glamorella's Daughter. Created by Jerry Bennett, Brandy Williams, and Charles J. Martin,  Glamorella’s Daughter seeks to explore the difficulties children face when trying to relate to their working parents in this middle grade comic series. Glamorella’s Daughter possesses the heart and inclusivity of Ms. Marvel as well as Young Sheldon’s focus on the challenges of being a brilliant and inquisitive child. In this book you see a mother beloved by the world, and a daughter who prefers her world smaller and behind the pages of her book, join forces to stop an alien invasion and learn to work together and throw our title characters autism.                                                                                                                                                                           Charles, Brandy and I talk about the start of this story. How Charles' relationship with his own children influenced it, how Brandy and Jerry helped it grow, and the work the three of them do in the growing Oklahoma City creator owned comic book scene, that sounds as though the next big thing probably won't come out of the big two in New York or LA. With the title so close to its goal, even if you don't listen, give the Kickstarter read more on the title, and see if it might just be perfect for someone in your life. Check out Glamorella's Daughter, DONATE if the story sounds interesting, and make sure to check out this project before its end date on December 12th!

EP 04 - Forgotten Hymns or KickStart My Lovecraftian Noir Horror Comic
Link to Kickstarter Campaign: https://bit.ly/2HrpaaH or Search "Forgotten Hymns" @ Kickstarter.com Episode 04 is about to get spooky with Guest Andrew Guilde Creator of the Kickstarter project Forgotten Hymns. FORGOTTEN HYMNS infuses the noir genre with modern interpretations of the Lovecraftian mythos to bring attention to the very real horrors of sexual abuse. Combining elements of noir crime with Lovecraft mystery, monsters, and madness Forgotten Hymns is a character driven horror comic that scares it’s readers into acknowledging that real world monsters do exist. Andrew I talk about his background in comics and love of writing, how this story was inspired by the birth of his child, the elements his fantastic artist Isaac Perez add to the story which aren't expressed in his words, and the benefits and problems of crowdfunding comics online.  Check out Forgotten Hymns, DONATE if the story sounds interesting, and make sure to check out this project before its end date on December 10th!
