STRIPPED: The Comics Documentary


STRIPPED is a project that is way past due. Webcomic creator Dave Kellett (Sheldon, Drive) and filmmaker Fred Schroeder have put together a documentary interviewing 60 comic creators, from both print and web, about cartooning as an industry, an art form and a passion, including thoughts on the past, present and future of their chosen profession.

Now the project is ready for the post-production phase, which is where their Kickstarter campaign comes in. Dave and Fred need help to take this film the rest of the way, so check out the trailer and visit their page to learn more about how you can help.

The Walking Dead Season 2: New Teaser Videos


Despite all the recent behind-the-scenes drama swirling around this show, I still think it's safe to say that the second season of TWD is going to be twice as amazing as the first season.

CBP Special #15 - Emily McGuiness



Dan and Jeff recently had the pleasure of talking to Emily McGuiness. Emily is the writer/artist of the full length graphic novel Ties: A Chronicle of Letters and Scotch. Emily talks about her time at SCAD, her experiences creating Ties, her successful Kickstarter campaign, San Diego Comic Con, and more.

Check out Emily's blog or pick up a copy of Ties from Lulu.com.

(For some reason, Dan's volume is a lot lower that of Jeff's and Emily's, so apologies for variation in sound quality.)

Incredible Hulk comic trailer




Marvel Architect Jason Aaron joins forces with legendary artist Marc Silvestri to redefine the Hulk in an all new ongoing series. After the events of Fear Itself, the Hulk has gone into hiding, seemingly safe from a world that hates and fears him. But when government agents come knocking at his door, the Hulk has no choice but to return to war against the one man whose existence threatens the safety of every living creature on the Earth. The one man who’s existence could doom the Hulk himself. And that man is Bruce Banner. Now separated into two men, the Hulk and Banner exist worlds apart but one climactic battle will bring them face to face again—and leave the Marvel Universe shaking in its wake.
