Episode 12 - "The Dirty Dozen (or so)"
Show Notes: This episode I've got a few reviews and reading recommendations for you- "WINK" by Rob Harrell, "The Impending Blindness Of Billie Scott" by Zoe Thorogood, and the NCSFEST are my recommendations- but I also review "Hit-Girl In HOLLYWOOD" by Kevin Smith (and don't really recommend it so much). I also have some MSCA news, say goodbye to some local Memphis talents- George Hunt, Anthony Biggers, and Chris Jarman, and say good riddance to 2020. I hope you're staying safe, staying warm, and staying tooned!

Episode 11 - "Batman VS Superking"
Show Notes: We're gonna start this new year with a trip back to the past in this "Flashback Friday" episode. Originally recorded for the Rogues Radio Podcast at the 2018 Memphis Comic Expo (AKA "DonnieCon"). I talk with the Bluff City Batman (James Fyke), wrestling historian and author Mark James, and wrestling legend Jerry "The King" Lawler. We discuss Memphis wrasslin', comics, art, food, heart-attacks, and Batmobiles. Lots of Memphis memories are recalled. Unfortunately, Jerry's friend Jim Blake (who you hear mentioned in this episode) passed away October 1, 2020- he was 75 years old. Jim was a local business owner and heavily involved in underground music and art in the 60's, 70's and into the 80's. He was an avid comic book fan and could be seen at local comic shops and conventions. R.I.P., Jim.

Episode 10 - "PROcrastination"
Show Notes: This is the Mid-South Cartoonists Association's December Monthly Zoom Meeting- well, most of it. We talk toons, discuss what's happening around the M-town, swap ideas on self-promotion/increasing eyes on our artwork, and how to make money with it and commissions during a time with no (or few) in person conventions. The monthly video calls happen on the first Tuesday of each month, and honestly with everything that's been keeping me busy since this one was recorded it now qualifies as a "Flashback Friday" episode..! You can find website and social media links for many of our MSCA members on the group's Members Directory page and the "Winter" zine issue is now available for purchase in local Memphis area comic shops. Happy Holidays- stay safe, stay warm, and stay tooned!

Episode 8 - "The Janimal"
Show Notes: The Janimal is a Jersey tomato roasting in the Arizona sun. A graduate of the Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University (NJ), he now resides in Northern Arizona with his family and two cats. He has exhibited at comic conventions from Phoenix Fan Fusion to New York Comic Con and serves as the acting president of the Northern Arizona Cartoonist Association (NAZCA). His fun and cartoony style has a great retro feel and translates easily to the drawing demo classes that have been a staple at Verde Valley libraries and LibCons over the past five years. His work can be seen on Facebook (The Janimal Draws), Instagram (@thejanimaldraws) and Twitter (@janimaltweets).

Episode 7 - "At The Aggi'center!"
Show Notes: This is another Flashback Friday episode featuring artists Mike Norton, Jenny Frison, Dietrich O. Smith, and MAW Productions. I recorded these interviews at the 2018 Memphis Comic Expo (DonnieCon) for the Rogues Radio Podcast. Plus I have updates on the MSCA Zine, our next MSCA Zoom meeting, and the upcoming live Supergirl Radio episode Nicki Workman and I will be guesting on December 1st. BTW- I goofed in the interview with Mike, the "monkeys ridin' dogs" radio ad was for the Delta Fair at Agricenter International, not the Mid-South Fair which is at the Landers Center in Southaven, MS. Also, Selmer is actually a bit south of Jackson, TN. My bad...
