Greetings, interwebz!

We continue our interviews from Epic Con today with part two! And, as I’m sure you’ve discovered, we are doing a weekly release for all of these! That’s because they are just too awesome to wait for!

We start off with John and Bea from World Paranormal Investigations going over their report from the investigation from Episode 27 of the Montgomery County Fairgrounds. I’ve been waiting for this report for about two months!

Then Andrew B. DeWar speaks with some of the vendors at Epic Con to learn more about their wares! He speaks with Curious Octopus (https://www.etsy.com/shop/CuriousOctopus) about their hand made clothing, as well as Twisted Wire art (http://www.twistedwire.us/) where we learn more about the inspiration behind the work.

We then speak with Jenny Janetty who is an up and coming scream queen type actress who is also a professional model who just also happens to be a wrestler! We learn how she fell into acting and talk about other nerdy stuff!

And lastly, we do some cross promoting with Zombie TakeOver T. V. (http://ztotv.com/) our booth neighbors at Epic Con! We talk to each other about how we all got started doing what we do!

We have more interviews to bring you, so don’t go away!

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!

TETHER: http://tethercomic.com

Les Garner’s Apocalypse Girl: http://www.sixus1.com and http://skystormstudio.com

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.

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? (more…)
