So a few weeks back Ron posted a piece of writing on Tumblr called “Stop doing spec pages: Why DC, Marvel, Boom etc. should pay you for your test pages.” He wrote about how the Majors of the comic book industry shouldn’t solicit free spec pages from artists they might want on their comics. We talk that and some of the discussion it caused in some places online. We go into more comic business ethics talk and identity within the culture of comics. There are some tangents on film and television.
This time it’s my friend Kenny Keil talking with me. We cover a lot of subjects here. Some good rap and music talk. We talk some TLOP (The Life of Pablo) and Kanye. We talk about the craft of making comics and drawing in vector along with comedy writing on Mad Magazine and why Cracked was dope. Kenny tells me how he going into writing Rap video treatments. We talk about Kenny’s comics, Rhyme Travelers, Death trip, Tales to Suffice, and Ferrari Boyz webcomic. We also talk about biting, hip hop culture and comic fandom (read the subtext bruh). Plus a manga talk all throughout. Enjoy this cloth talk. Major keys are laid down.
