Dylan Horrocks - Season 2, Episode 4

Thien and Rina have the huge honor of interviewing distinguished comic artist and writer, Dylan Horrocks, whose celebrated comics masterpiece, "Hicksville" has just been re-released with a beautiful new edition published by Drawn and Quarterly. In this episode, Dylan talks about his personal journey in comics-making since the first printing of "Hicksville", as well as his revealing experiences writing for mainstream comics, the decision to serialize his comics on the internet, and the inspiring comics scene in New Zealand.

We also chat with our lovely New Comics reporter, cartoonist and buddy Josh Frankel about new work by Lewis Trondheim, Oliver East, Matt Dembicki, as well as McSweeney's Panorama. We are really happy about this episode, and hope you will be too -- have a listen!

Lark Pien - Season 2, Episode 3

In this episode, Thien accuses Rina of child neglect for going on a book tour. Nice! Most importantly though, the two finally get to interview a very special guest, talented cartoonist and painter, Lark Pien. Lark talks about her newest book, Long Tail Kitty (published by Blue Apple Books) as well as her comics beginnings, working on children's books, and her various upcoming projects. (Geez, this lady is very busy!) We also talk new Japanese comics and Stan Sakai's Usagi Yojimbo with our friendly, neighborhood New Comics reporter, Josh Frankel. So, give a listen, it's a fun one! Oh, and, Happy M-Day everyone!
