tether 2 cover

It has been a long wait for TETHER issue 2 to come out… Or, at least it felt like a long wait. Ever since I finished issue 1 at the Independent Creators Expo on February 1st, 2014, I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of issue 2, which I was told would be ready in time for Derby City Comic Con. And, thankfully, the kick ass TETHER team kept to their word, and shortly after I was gifted with issue 2, I devoured it! And I am pleased to share my review with all of you within the Nerdosphere!

episode number pic 22

As you may remember, Mr. and Mrs. Uncommon Geek went to Derby City Comic Con 2014 a week or so ago and met some pretty awesome people!

And, if you recall, we mentioned that we recorded some interviews!

In this episode of The Uncommon Geek podcast, be amazed as we interview… Chuck Moore: The guy behind the con! Joe Gilbert and Willis Alvey: who are some of the minds behind the wickedly awesome comic book, TETHER! Les Garner: The god who created Apocalypse Girl! And, John Wilson: The man, the legend, the one who keeps Chuck sane and co-owner of Comic Related!

We both had an amazing time, and can not wait to go back again next year! Below, please find the links to all the things!

Today’s song, I felt, needed a little bit more of a geek flare, so I chose “Otaku Help Line” by Victory Road from the album “Forever the Optimist”  licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported license.

Apocalypse Girl cover ADJUST

Derby City Comic Con. While I am not new to attending conventions, I am still somewhat new to the comic book scene. I often confuse Marvel with DC and have only really been interested enough in one or two story lines to want to purchase a serial comic at a local comic book store.

The thing that will get me to buy a thing to read generally rests on the story that it can tell. I have read many types of books by many different authors since I was very young.  Since entering the world of adult responsibilities, the main thing to change in my reading habits is that I have become more discriminating about what I read. Since I have less time to read for pleasure, it had better be a good story worth reading.

While I was wandering around the showroom floor at Derby City, I had the opportunity to meet and talk with Les Garner who is working on his first full graphic novel which is titled Apocalypse Girl and will be published in the future by SkyStorm Studio.  He was offering for sale the introduction of the story of Apocalypse Girl, as well as some of the art and pages that are already completed.

The encounter went a little something like this…*

As I sit at the table in our hotel room at the end of day one, wearing the TETHER/Derby City Comic Con shirt, resting up for the Ford Theater Reunion show that starts at around 9pm tonight at the time of this writing, I am struggling as to exactly how to begin my review of the awesomeness that is Derby City Comic Con. I mean, sure, it has been a long day, but, I can at least get the entry started, right? Continue Reading »
