Hey all. It’s been a while, right? But I assure you I am very much alive and hard at work on comics and such. I’m nearly done with a 24 pg mini-comic for this November’s LUTEFISK SUSHI E show at ALTERED ESTHETICS (which, if you are a MN cartoonist, you’re welcome and encouraged to be a part of too!). The downside to this, of course, is that since its being done special for the show I can’t post any of it here. BUT BUT BUT shortly after I finish that I PROMISE I will get back to posting content–and an ALL NEW STORY–here. I’m going to finish a graphic novel I started in January over the next year or so and will start posting pages here once a week SOOOOON! Promise!!!
I’ve also been slacking on the LUTEFISK SUSHI PODCAST as you may have noticed, but will do my best to get back on track there, too. As a sign of good faith, there’s a brand new episode up RIGHT NOW!!! http://www.cartoonistconspiracy.com/sushipodcast/2012/08/lutefisk-sushi-podcast-episode-24-shloggs/
In the twenty-fourth episode host DANNO KLONOWSKI speaks with Matt “SHLOGGS” Risnes . Despite the fact this podcast is the audio sampling of MN Cartoonists, SHLOGGS is in fact NOT a cartoonist, rather Shloggs is one of Danno’s oldest friends on earth. In addition to that honor, Shloggs is an avid film aficionado, as well as a blogger and frequent and sought after film podcast guest who, rather than filling the internet with nerd rage, fills his blog posts and podcast appearances with eloquent logic and critical thinking about the medium of filmmaking. That in mind, Danno and Shloggs spend this episode breaking down and discussing their favorite (and least favorite) film adaptations of comic books. Shloggs provides the insight into the filmmaking and Danno discusses the ways in which being either faithful or disrespectful of the source material can make or break a film (depending on the film, obviously).
SPOILER ALERTS!!! If you have not seen the recent DARK KNIGHT RISES or AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (and good for you on that one), we discuss key plot points. Other films discussed include: SCOTT PILGRIM vs THE WORLD, BATMAN ’89, The HELLBOY series, the recent Marvel films including AVENGERS, THE CROW, and several more.
The Lutefisk Sushi Podcast is sponsored by the INTERNATIONAL CARTOONIST CONSPIRACY, the ALTERED ESTHETICS GALLERY, and the NORDEAST COMICS SUMMIT. The Lutefisk Sushi podcast is a STAPLEGENIUS.COM(cast) production.
