This week’s guest is Joey Weiser, the creator of Ghost Hog, coming in May from Oni Press.  You’re not supposed to judge books by their cover, but how can you go wrong with a title like that?  This is an all-ages original graphic novel about..well...a ghost hog.
If you want to try out Ghost Hog before buying it, you can check out a completely original story in the Oni Press Free Comic Book Day issue on May 4th.  Try that out, then come back on May 8th to pick up the graphic novel with entirely different material.
Joey can be found online on Twitter as @JoeyWeiser, Instagram as @JoeyWeiserComics and his official website, tragic-planet.com.

This week’s guest is Magdalene Visaggio.  You might know her work from comics such as Kim & Kim, Quantum Teens Are Go, and that really awesome Superman story in last year’s Cursed Comics Calvacade.  She’s writing a new series due out in March from Oni Press called Morning in America. I got a look at the first issue and it’s pretty awesome.
What I liked most about this conversation is Magdalene’s perspective on the ‘80s.  Morning in America is set in 1983 so there’s a nostalgia factor in there, but she brings a really interesting viewpoint to it that really explains a generation’s current fascination with that decade.  
Magdalene can be found on Twitter as @MagsVisaggs.  Morning in America #1 is due out on March 6th.

This week’s guest is John Horlsey, the creator of The Eynes, a new anthology series currently on Kickstarter.  John has orchestrated an elaborate and impressive setup for this comic, pulling the strings behind the scenes to tell an overarching narrative using short stories from creators all around the world.  Each tale looks at different characters from across time that have been fighting monsters for ages. It’s pretty cool stuff and it’s clear from speaking to John that this project is in good hands. He’s very buttoned up.
You can find out more about The Eynes and check out previews and the Kickstarter itself at EynesAnthology.com.  John can be found on Twitter as @y2cl.

This week is the return of writer, Ben Kahn.  I last spoke with him way back in episode #25 when he was just starting his new series, Heavenly Blues with Scout Comics.  That six-issue series has now completed and has not only been collected in a trade paperback, available now, but has been optioned as a feature film, so there’s some pretty exciting times ahead for Ben.
Ben can be found online at his official site, BenKahnComics.com and on Twitter as @BenTheKahn.  
In other news, 2018 has wrapped up and I have shared my list of the top 10 horror comics of the year.  Be sure to check it out over at HorrorTalk.com. I’ve had the pleasure of speaking to a number of the creators whose work is highlighted in the best of the bloodiest on this show.

Yes, I’m still playing catch up.  The last few months of 2018 have been insane.  I’m aiming to get into more of a regular schedule with next year.  Anyway, here’s the second half of my New York Comic Con interviews.  There are three here for you, all of which have books out now from Image Comics.  First up is Joe Casey with MCMLXXV, then Gisele Lagace with Exorsisters, and then Ryan Cady for Infinite Dark.  Be sure to listen all the way to the end because I asked a bunch of creators what classic Disney movie they’d like to see reimagined as a horror movie.  I collected the responses at the end of the episode.

This week I had an awesome chat with writer Dave Dwonch.  His work includes Prom of the Dead and the new webcomic, Mind Palace, which creates a singular universe of all of Bryan Fuller’s TV creations, including Hannibal.  Dave has an abundance of stories and we just scratch the surface in this conversation. I definitely want to get him back on the show to talk some more.
Dave can be found online at OutOfMind.co.  You can find Mind Palace at MindPalaceComic.com and you can purchase Prom of the Dead at BehomethComics.us.  
In other news, past guest Mike Garley has returned to Kickstarter for a one-shot digital comic called Our Final Halloween.  At the time of this recording, he’s only a few days in with over 100 backers and about halfway to the funding goal.

"Terrortory 2", the sequel to the Amazon Star of October 2016, will premiere on October 1, 2018, on Amazon Prime.

Both films are in the popular anthology format like Creepshow, Tales from the Darkside, and Trilogy of Terror.

The film was shot entirely in Maryland and is the seventh feature from filmaker Kevin Kangas, writer/director of the award-winning "Hunting Humans", "Fear of Clowns 1&2", "Bounty" and "Garden of Hedon". "Terrortory 2" is written entirely by Kangas other than one segment that's written by Stoker-nominated horror novelist Ronald Malfi. ("Bone White", "Snow", "Floating Staircase").

The film features actors Richard Cutting ("National Treasure 2"), Joe Cardamone ("Alaska Ice Cold Killers", Stormi Maya ("Death Kiss"), Josh Davidson ("Dead Island"), M.T. Smith ("Deadlands 2: Trapped"), Frederick Cowie ("Plan 9 From Outer Space"), Ali Lukowski ("You're F**kin' Dead!"), and B-movie legend George Stover ("Nightbeast", "Attack of the 60 Foot Centerfold" and "Hairspray").

Ironically, with this month's Loot Crate theme being 'Mayhem' there's surprisingly little of it caused by James' two unwilling co-hosts as they stay relatively calm and under control for the unboxing of August's crate.

This week’s guests are Drew Edwards and Paulo Hernandez.  Drew is the creator and writer of Halloween Man, a long-running horror webcomic.  Paulo is one of the artists on the new Halloween Man anthology comic Bat City Special, currently on Indiegogo.  This comic serves as a spooky love letter to the city of Austin, Texas and it’s clear from speaking to these two creators that they care deeply for that town.

Ben is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the release of Secret Santas.  It’s well worth checking out.

Due to a scheduling snafu, I don’t have a guest this week.  I’ve got a few horror comics creators lined up for the next batch of episodes, but this ended up being an off week.  Don’t worry though. I’m prepared for this. This has happened once before in between episodes 25 and 26 where I played the introduction episode of the first, but lost HorrorTalk podcast, If You Watch This, I’ll Read That.
If you haven’t listened to that episode, here’s a quick recap.  The show is hosted by myself and my editor Steve Pattee. The idea is that I don’t watch a ton of horror movies and Steve doesn’t read a ton of horror comics so he’d give me a movie to watch and I’d give him a comic to read.  Then we’d come back and talk about it. This is the first discussion episode where I watched The Exorcist for the first time ever and Steve read one of my all-time favorite horror comics, Colder. This was recorded a few years ago, back when Colder was only a single mini-series.  Now it’s a trilogy.
We recorded four episodes of If You Watch This, I’ll Read That over the course of several months.  These never made it out into the world because we couldn’t quite get on a more routine schedule. I intend to launch a Patreon for Funny Book Splatter by the end of the year and this show is one of the goals I’ve outlined.  I want to try and carve out at least one a month. So, if you like the show, please let me know. I can be reached via email at [email protected] and on Twitter as @JamesFerguson.  I would love to hear what you think.
We’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming next week.

This week I’ve got a packed house for you.  Greg Smith, Michael Tanner, and Zach Lehner are here to talk about their young adult horror series, Junior Braves of the Apocalypse from Oni Press.  The comic follows a group of scouts as they return from a camping trip to find a zombie apocalypse has decimated their hometown. The second volume, Out of the Woods, just dropped this week.  
Quick note on the audio for this show. We had some technical difficulties getting Zach connected, but we figure it out a few minutes after we started chatting.  We could see Zach, but not hear him. That’s why we get so excited when he chimes in all of a sudden.
You can find out more about Junior Braves of the Apocalypse at the official site, JuniorBraves.com, Facebook.com/JuniorBraves65, @JuniorBraves65 on Twitter, and @JuniorBraves on Instagram.  Zach can be found online on Instagram @lehnerzach. Greg can be found on Twitter @ThatAmazingTwit. Michael can be found on Twitter @MikeIsErnie.
In other news, I recently posted the latest Loot Crate unboxing videos to the HorrorTalk YouTube channel.  I film these with my two kids and they’re increasingly out of control. In the newest one, my three year old tries to slit my throat with a plastic scalpel.  It’s a little nuts. Check them out and subscribe to the channel for more of these unboxing videos and other content.

This week’s guest is Joseph Oliveira, returning to the show to talk about his new project, Wendigo Wood.  I had first spoken with Joseph over a year ago, early in his comics career. Since then he’s had a few successful Kickstarter campaigns to fund the release of the first two issues of Ghost Island and an anthology called Folk Tales of the Cryptids.  He’s on Kickstarter again to fund the release of the first issue of Wendigo Wood, another comic that gives me a perfect excuse to avoid the outdoors.
