PLUS: Hawkman and Avengelyne writer Mark Poulton joins us to talk about his new All-Ages comic The Pizza Tree

ABOUT OUR GUEST: Writer Mark Poulton (Hawkman/Avengelyne)

WHAT DO YOU DO? (Think Twitter Bio)

I am a professional comic book writer and children’s book author. I’ve written for DC Comics, Image Comics, and Arcana Studio. I produced the A Cat Named Haiku animated short for Top Buzz, and served as associate producer on Mythical Creatures, an animated pilot financed by the Canadian and New Zealand governments.

WHAT DO YOU GOT GOING ON THESE DAYS? (Shameless Plug Time)

My latest book is Pizza Tree, an all ages graphic novel that I co-wrote with my 7 year old son, Chase, based off an idea he had. It is published by Arcana Studio through my new creator-owned imprint, Artistacomics. The A Cat Named Haiku animated short was released earlier in the year and is doing well. It is currently being developed as a feature by Arcana Studio with Sean O’Reilly attached as screenwriter and director.

GOT A HOT TAKE? (Tell us the burning issues you’re dying to talk about)

Not sure if you discussed DC’s comment that the comic book industry is on the verge of collapse, but I think it’s just the opposite. I don’t think it’s ever been stronger. The level of quality from creators is at its highest. I was at the Arcana booth this year for SDCC and the two biggest draws were 10 year old Kiefer O’Reilly and my 7 year old son, Chase. The future of comics is in good hands. The talent pool has never been stronger. Readers now just have so many great choices to pick from. It’s almost like television complaining that ratings are down. That’s because there are so many ways to consume the product (cable, Netflix and other streaming services). Most readers don’t have an unlimited budget when it comes to comics. If an indie company is putting something great out that they want to start reading, chances are another book will get cut from the their pull list and I think you are beginning to see readers don’t need that Marvel or DC book they have been collecting for years anymore.

Here’s an excerpt from the Podcast with guest Victoria Cheri Bennett:

Michael Dolce: So we’re going to start with Game of Thrones vs Lord of the Rings

Victoria Cheri Bennett: Lord of the Rings created WETA – this whole motion capture video. They changed cinema. It was unheard of to go to a studio and ask for funding for all three movies in one film.

MD: Hassan who are you going to choose?

Hassan: If we’re going by the books, Lord of the Rings wins out. IT was the second book to the bible. If we’re talking about the show, then Game of Thrones was bigger in depth and sheer enjoyment and comprehension of the story

Michael Dolce: I would like to welcome our next guest, who’s resume is incredible. It includes Doll House, House of Cards, Quantico, starred in Home Alone 3, American Pie 2, and he was on the Cosby Show. Welcome Kevin Kilner, how are you doing?

Kevin Kilner: I’m good, Michael, how are you?

MD: Fantastic, I have got to tell you, I mentioned to my interns that you were going to be on the show today and one of the interns was like “he was in A Cinderella Story.” She was very blown away that we are having you on the show today.

KK: It’s interesting having being a dad in these movies because they stick around. I’m having all generations, all walks of life come up to me. People from sci-fi or fans of House of Cards or A Cinderella Story, it’s interesting how it turns over. I did like five or six episodes of One Tree Hill and I have mothers and daughters come up to me.

Here’s an excerpt from the Podcast: David Crow Den of Geek:

Michael Dolce: Whats your favorite episode so far in the whole series?

David Crow: I would say season 2, which wasn’t my favorite season, but I loved black water. They did an entire episode around battle, which they have done several times since then, it did not have the budget or spectacle as the last battle. Reason why I love Black Water is the cinematic eye they had with it; they showed how each character reacted to the battle. It almost remind see of a play, in a sense there is this great violence and its showing how everyone is reacting to it in real time.

MD: A lot of people tell me season 2 wasn’t that good, but we are saying a type of pizza isn’t good, all pizza is good. Those first five episodes, not having read the books, was tough to get through. The first episode was intriguing, but then the next four were just a set up, but Season 2, I binged that in a weekend.

DC: I read the books, but only after the first season. I fell involve with the world, so by the time Season 2 came out, I was well rehearsed in it. I think they left out so much quality material in Season 2 because it was a good book. I think thats the reason why they broke the third book into Seasons 3 and 4.
