EPISODE #135: DIRK MANNING / TRAVIS MCINTIRE – IN THIS EPISODE:
On Fresh is the Word, we like to deliver wisdom through great stories from the minds of bright creatives of pop culture. Through those stories, we like to dissect the journey of our guests and present actionable lessons and advice for our listeners no matter what career or avenue of artistry they pursue.
This episode is a two-parter, first with comic book/horror author Dirk Manning, known for such titles as Nightmare World, Tales of Mr. Rhee, and Twiztid’s Haunted High-Ons, recorded at this years C2E2 convention in Chicago. We had a quick chat about his current Kickstarter campaign for the superhero comic HOPE, co-created with K. Lynn Smith (from Episode #131) and being released through Source Point Press.
The second interview is my chat with Editor-In-Chief of Source Point Press, Travis McIntire. During my chat with Travis, we talk about all the big things in store at Source Point Press in 2019 (HOPE, Floppy Cop, Rottentail movie, Haunted High-Ons), their early history, doing convention, what they look for in creators that they work with, and the audience they try to connect to.
Each episode, the guest is asked to suggest someone from their life/career that should be on Fresh is the Word that would have good stories to tell. McIntire chose Paul Burke, who worked in music management in the 1970s (for groups like KISS) and co-founder of McFarlane Toys.
