    Jody Houser Talks Faith with Graphic Policy Radio

    in Pop Culture

    Faith is the first comic to star a plus-sized superhero! Graphic Policy Radio welcomes special guest, writer Jody Houser who is part of the team at Valiant Comics bringing Faith to life in one of the year's most anticipated comics.

    Jody Houser earned her MFA in Creative Writing at Emerson College in Boston, where she completed her master's thesis in screenwriting and was a winner of the Rod Parker Fellowship for Playwriting.

    She began experimenting with webcomics in 2006 and is the creator behind the webcomic Cupcake POW!, which has updated weekly since 2010 and is currently available on comiXology Submit.

    Jody has been a contributing writer to numerous comic anthologies including Womanthology: Heroic and Womanthology: Space from IDW, CMYK: Magenta from Vertigo, and Avengers: No More Bullying from Marvel, as well as Dead Roots and Rise: Comics Against Bullying. Recently, Jody has written Orphan Black for IDW and Agent May for Marvel.

    Faith was the break out star of Valiant's Harbinger. A psionically gifted “psiot” she has always aspired to greatness. Now this once-ordinary teenager is taking control of her destiny and becoming the hard-hitting hero she’s always known she can be – complete with a mild-mannered secret identity, unsuspecting colleagues, and a day job as a reporter that routinely throws her into harm’s way! Well, at least she thought it would… When she’s not typing up listicles about cat videos, Faith makes a secret transformation to patrol the night as the City of Angels’ own leading superhero – the sky-soaring Zephyr! But flying solo is going to be tougher than she ever thought.

    A Wizard Did It

    in Politics Progressive

    On the Thursday January 22nd, 2015 episode of Liberal Dan Radio: 

    Inflategate has caused a lot of discussion of the alleged repeated cheating by the New England Patriots. I will give my opinions on the matter and correct a lot of confusion there seems to be about it. 

    The State of the Union took place on Tuesday as well. I will review some of the highlights. 

    And in the bottom half of the hour I will have Wendy and Brock from A Wizard Did It to discuss their project and the impact that actions like those that took place in Paris can have on artists. 

    Those issues, headlines, tweet of the week, and more talk from the left that's right at 8pm central on Blog Talk Radio. 

    Remember, you can support the show by contributing to my gofundme campaign. 

    Finally, if you are listening after the live broadcast you can leave your comments at the show thread on LiberalDan.com.

    Elisabeth Gifford & Jonathan Matos

    in Books

    Elisabeth Gifford grew up in a vicarage in the industrial Midlands. She studied French literature and world religions at Leeds University. She has written articles for The Times and the Independent and has a Diploma in Creative Writing from Oxford OUDCE and an MA in Creative Writing from Royal Holloway College. She is married with three children. They live in Kingston on Thames but spend as much time as possible in the Hebrides.

    We are a team of two, Matt Snipes and Jonathan Matos, who met in our church's youth group, and became friends over a shared love for comic books and comic book films. Our love of good storytelling led us to create our own comic books, web videos, and now our own website, GraphiclyChristian.com. Our anthology series, Gauntlet Magazine, was a "call to action" for faith-based writers and artists to publish more genre and literary fiction, as well as an outlet for our own creations. Recent challenges have got us rethinking that format going forward, but our creativity simply can't be stopped! GraphiclyChristian.com in the new year will feature a new line of webcomics and video content, which we hope will inspire and excite a new generation of creative thinkers!

    XQ ResQ Radio guest Shannon Wheeler

    in Poetry

    Join Jordan Margolis ( ExcuseMan) as he talks to Shannon Wheeler bout his new book I Thought You Would Be Funnier

    Wheeler was born August 13, 1966 and grew up in Berkeley, California[1] where he attended the Walden Center and School. He later attended Berkeley High School, eventually graduating from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in architecture in 1989.

    He started cartooning while at UCBerkeley publishing his daily gag cartoons "Calaboose" and then "Tooth and Justice" in The Daily Californian. In the early 90s, he resided in Austin, Texas, whose laid-back cafe culture fueled and supported the creation of Too Much Coffee Man, becoming a weekly comic strip in 1990, eventually winning Wheeler an Eisner Award. Shannon continued to use this character in self-published zines, comic books, magazines and webcomics for a number of years, culminating in 2006 with the Too Much Coffee Man Opera[2] (in one act) and followed by Too Much Coffee Man Opera, The Refill (in two acts) in 2008. From 2004 until 2008, Shannon contributed to many of the Idiot's Guide books. Shannon's weekly strip Postage Stamp Funnies appeared in the The Onion newspaper until 2009, when he began contributing to The New Yorker magazine.[3] In 2010, Wheeler published a collection of his cartoons rejected by The New Yorker called I Thought You Would Be Funnier, which won the 2011 Will Eisner Comics Industry Award for Best Humor Publication.

    Wheeler currently lives in Portland, Oregon.
