This episode: Michel Fiffe!

This episode we welcome COPRA mastermind Michel Fiffe! His self-published comic quickly caught the indy-comics world on fire, capturing the minds of the Wednesday Warriors who mainline superhero comics, as well as the artcomix wonks, panel flow fiends and mark-making fetishists from the “other” side of the tracks. Bergen Street Comics stepped in to produce the collections and get the word out past the limited reach of the issues, and the rest is history. Michel’s currently working in full on “COPRA Mode” on a 3 issue mini series for Rob Liefeld, detailing some lost history of one of his lesser known Extreme Studios creations, in BLOODSTRIKE: BRUTALISTS. We talk about that, the genesis of COPRA, his brief time writing for Marvel, some of his favorite creators, his working process, comics theory, and much much more in this lively chat. Plus: Mike & Zack debate what makes a ‘zine, and talk a little about ye olde internet harassment.  

PS: DON’T FORGET! We’ve finally launched our super cool Process Party Patreon! If you enjoy the pod and want to help support us in what we do, now is your chance to kick in. There’s a few reward tiers available, including the low low $1/month, but if you subscribe at the $3/month level, you will get access to an exclusive Patreon-only weekly podcast feed! That’s a whole extra podcast for less than 1$/episode of the main feed!

If the main Process Party podcast is like being in the mix chatting with cartoonists at a convention party, Process Party: Real Talk is the afterparty, when the walls come down and the real talk, advice and gossip flow freely!  Every week we ask our guests to impart a little *extra* bit of wisdom, some nuts & bolts how-to info or philosophy, and of course a heavy dose of every cartoonist’s number one concern: GETTING PAID IN COMICS! These minisodes contain exclusive content not included in the regular podcast!

Our guests come from a variety of backgrounds and places in their careers, and they all have advice for you. From how to mentally balance comics and day-jobs, to nuts and bolts advice about turning comics panels into cold hard cash. Hear exclusive tidbits about the industry, insider stuff that’s 🔥 too hot🔥 to include in the public podcast, and more.

If you really love the pod, you can sign up for the $5/month level and get everything in the lower tiers, but we also release an After Party mini-sode every Monday afternoon where Mike & Zack will review the stuff they are reading or watching at the moment! What did they think of that one movie about the people or place? What cool old/new comics are they digging on this month? This is a mainline fix of our patented jibba-jabba.


Episode 29 of Real Talk is with Tony Consiglio! Get in on the ground floor of the Process Party Patreon and make sure you don’t miss an episode of Real Talk! Real Talk updates every Thursday only for Patreon subscribers.

Also: Episode 09 of Process Party After Party is up!
After Party is our weekly jibba jabba podcast for 5$/month subscribers! The focus may shift slightly here and there, but the idea is basically that we’re gonna get together and talk about the books, movies or comics that we’ve both been reading. Some things we have both seen, and some things we’re recommending to each other (and you!).
EPISODE 09:   The Ladykillers / Goodfellas / ER
After Party updates every Monday only for Patreon subscribers.
