Process Party – Episode 02 – Elijah Brubaker!



Study Group Comics has a podcast! Join hosts Zack Soto (Secret Voice, Power Button) & Mike Dawson (Rules For Dating My Daughter, Troop 142) as they discuss their own creative processes, comic art, family life, and a ton of other stuff.
Each episode finds a new guest from the world of comics joining Mike & Zack for an in depth conversation, and occasional guest segments from their pals around the world.


This week’s guest: Elijah Brubaker!


Elijah Brubaker joins us to talk about writing, juggling new projects, the satisfaction of drawing, putting aside work you don’t love and being OK with it, and more. Elijah is the author of the excellent biography Reich & Jezebel, which was originally serialized here on Study Group but soon  to be a handsome print edition from Uncivilized Books.


Elijah ALSO talks up the bombastic but underrated 80’s American-Ninja-meets-Akira-meets-Red-Dawn-meets-Stand-By-Me-meets-Cannon-Films/everything in a blender comic Nth MAN: The Ultimate Ninja by Larry Hama, Ron Wagner & Dale Keown, published by Marvel  from 1989-1990. Zack is somewhat more earnest in his appreciation for Nth Man than Elijah, but they both have good things to say about it.


At the top of the show, Mike and Zack also discuss what’s been going on with them recently  – including the hotly anticipated NYCC convention report Mike promised us last week.

And! Cartoonist & friend of the show  Shanna Matuszak joins us to chat about recent comics releases Hot or Not: 20th-Century Male Artists By Jessica Campbell, Doom Patrol #2 by Gerard Way & Nick Derington, Lost Boys #1 by Tim Seely & Scott Godlewski, Kaijumax Season 2 #5 by Zander Cannon,  Southern Cross #8 by Becky Cloonan & Andy Belanger,  Cowboys & Insects by Shaky Kane & David Hine, and Southern Bastards by Jason Aaron & Jason Latour.
