FEEDING GROUND _ Solicitation and Podcast

Michael here:

In case you missed it, here you have the solicitation for FEEDING GROUND Issue 2 and a link to my first Podcast appearance! With this cover image, I was trying to create a new doomed iconography based on the Christian symbol of the Sacred Heart as well as the Mexican lotería card for "Corazón" to communicate the cursed blood that flows within.

Page Count: 64 pages
Format: saddle bound, 6.625” x 10.25”, full color

A local enforcer, Don Oso, terrorizes the Busqueda family as their father Diego makes a solitary trek home through the horrors of the Devil’s Highway. Meanwhile, US Border Patrol agents unearth a shocking discovery that threatens to reveal a secret buried in the desert for generations. Also included are 24 pages of bonus content in Spanish!

I'm a regular listener to The Ink Panthers Show podcast (a "Fanther") and I was nervous and excited to be asked on as a guest star. Hosted by famed cartoonists Mike Dawson and Alex Robinson, the show is ostensibly a comic book podcast but the topics are all over the map and the main draw is the funny, familiar, conversation held between Mike and Alex.

On this episode, I reveal the details of that crucial moment when Archaia accepted my FEEDING GROUND pitch and then the conversation veers off into other bits ranging from Pixar to veganism and my love of cuttlefish.

You can listen off of their website or download and subscribe to the podcast for free through the iTunes store.

Ride the Panther!
