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.
The guest for this episode is New York City-based comic book writer Rich Douek, who has a couple of a new titles with Road of Bones #1 premiering last week via IDW Publishing and Wailing Blade #1 coming this week via ComixTribe. In the past, Douek wrote the Gutter Magic and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Universe books on IDW Publishing along with being an award-winning copywriter in advertising. During our chat we talked about Road of Bones and Wailing Blade, creating universes, the real world parallels of his stories, and the spectrum of horror writing.
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. Douek chose the artist on Wailing Blade, Joe Mulvey, and Andy Schmidt, former Senior Editor at IDW Publishing and former Editor at Marvel Comics who now runs Comics Experience, which as noted on their web site: “create the comics courses that he wished existed when he was trying to break into the industry and learn the skills needed to become a professional comics creator/editor”.
