It was mys distinct pleasure ot talk to Erik Bitmanis about his new book Hard Wyred.

 

Show Notes (Courtesy of Erik)

Hard Wyred is a new scifi/comedy comic series that has many of its visuals rooted in classic cyberpunk fiction. Melding together laugh out loud humour, over-the-top action, and some heart felt moments, Hard Wyred looks to play its way into reader’s hearts around the globe.

The story takes place in the near future where, through the wonders of the internet, we have now developed a highly advanced, futuristic online world. In this world people can upload their consciousness to an online profile and live out their wildest dreams and fantasies in this amazing new world without ever having to go back to reality.

The hero of the story, Sam Wyerznowski, is still very much stuck in the past. This fast paced, technological world has rushed past him and he purposely lags behind refusing to keep up. Once a member of special peacekeeping force known as “Sweepers”, Sam and the Sweepers have since gone to ruin. All of them lacking the conviction to enforce what they were originally uploaded to do, and instead focus on personal wealth, gain, and power. Sam’s job has since diminished to a corporate mercenary for hire, which oddly brings him into this online world on a constant basis. (Weird for someone who hates technology so much) Having spent the last 10 months on a leave of absence (although many refer to it as a forced retirement) due to a crisis caused by Sam’s own hands, Sam is brought back into this online world to investigate an attack on one of his previous employer’s research facilities. What he stumbles into is a problem much larger than he could have ever imagined.

This time it was my distinct pleasure to talk to City of Wall creator and comic book convention connaisseur Shaun Noel

SHOW NOTES (courtesy of Shaun)
 
City of Walls- Welcome to the prison-like city of Kowloon. A cluster of conjoined
buildings run by gangs. Where the ability of an individual to hope is
non-existent. Daniel, Jin, and Ariana are three kids who defy this
life sentence. They intend to escape and are willing to go to extreme
measures to do so. Since escape on foot is impossible, their quest
leads them to the sky.

The episode started as a discussion of Josh's controversial TUMBLR POST To the Writers.... 

But it became a discussion of Vinyl Records, JAZZ, the essence of collaboration and how we need to live by this simple principle: Don't be a dick first.
