NYCC'15: Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter

Dec 01 2015 / Published in TV Essays Etc

We chatted with the cast of Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter while at the NYCC'15. Never heard of the show? Well, this five part Adult Swim mini-series will air all week long starting on December 7th. Set in the pretend sleep enclave of Garrity, Vermont (aka "B&B Town, USA!"), Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter is the story of a neon-clad man with a mysterious past and a highly specialized skill set - hunting werewolves. When a sudden plague of inexplicable werewolf fatalities strikes, the Garrity sheriff's department finds itself in over its head and the fate of the townspeople is left to Neon Joe. Will he catch the beast before the next full moon, or will it live another day and kill again?

This half-hour live-action mini-series is created by Jon Glaser (Girls, Parks and Recreation), produced by PFFR, and stars Glaser as “Neon Joe” with Scott Adsit (30 Rock), Stephanie March (Law & Order: SVU), Steve Little (Eastbound and Down), and Steve Cirbus (Delocated).

NYCC'15: An Interview with Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá about Dark Horse Comic's Graphic Novel: Two Brothers

Oct 15 2015 / Published in Comics Feature Story

Two Brothers, a new graphic novel by Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá came out this week at the New York Comic Convention (2015). It's an immensely fascinating story about a dysfunctional family from Manaus, Brazil. The artwork by Gabriel Bá is one of the most beautiful comics I've ever seen. The Brazilian Wonder Twins (Moon & Bá) transport you to Brazil in the 1950s. I have never experienced a comic so captivating as Two Brothers. It's dark, it's red hot, you can feel the music and the colors (the book is drawn in black & white by the way), and you will love/hate every character. It's a gripping soap opera of a tale. It's chaotic, it's fierce, and i thought what better place to interview the Wonder Twins about it then the New York Comic Con.
