Episode number art 44

We here at The Uncommon Geek enjoy reading comics.

Who doesn’t, right?!

So, when I had the opportunity to interview Eric Adams, the creator of the comic series “Lackluster World”, I jumped on it!

And let me tell you, he was an absolute pleasure to speak to!

We spoke a little bit at a few conventions, but never as in depth as this episode!

We talk about his flagship series, Lackluster World, as well as his Kickstarter to help get all seven issues printed into one complete volume with never-before-seen content!

And we also talk a lot about sci-fi and how awesome Farscape is!

Green Lantern 9 issues

A small assortment from my Green Lantern Collection.

Last year, I off and on started to passively collect comic books. My collection didn’t pass 15 issues before I sold them all off to help fund my short lived relocation to Washington state. I primarily had odd issues of X-Men, the rarest being Magneto issue 0, an issue with the X-Babies, and some issues of Cable. I had some other titles that I can not recall, but one of my favorites was an issue that I regret selling, mainly because it was a gift from a good friend. It was Green Lantern/Silver Surfer: Unholy Alliance! And that memory has sparked me to do something that I was kicking around for a long while, but haven’t found the drive to do until just a few months ago…
