Episode four of the new UK small press Awesome Comics Podcast will be coming at you this Monday. The hosts Vince Hunt (The Red Mask from Mars), Dan Butcher (Vanguard) and downthetubes contributor Tony Esmond will be chatting to artist Christian Wildgoose.
Christian is really making a name for himself in the UK and now in Europe and the United States. The artist on True Grit, Porcelain and the upcoming Bone China, he is being courted by the bigger companies over the water after excellent appearances in the Vertigo anthology CMYK and Mad Max: Fury Road – Inspired Artists.
Part of the small press collective Improper Books, Christian is about to release the second instalment of the Porcelain series, entitled Bone China, at Thought Bubble in November. If you can find one, there is an free preview of the second volume that has been distributed at comic shops and conventions. (I think GOSH in London’s West End still has copies available).
So strap in for some talk about Christian’s process, his plans for the future and his artistic influences. Vince, Dan and Tony will be on hand with snarky remarks, sexy talk and encouragement. There’ll be a book of the week talk and recommendations for other small press comics that are well worth your attention.
