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 episode it was my distinct pleasure to talk with Eric Seaton, creator of the graphic novel series Legend of the Mantamaji (and award winnig television director, but he's not one to brag so I will do it for him)
Notes on Eric and Legends of the Mantamaji:
Eric Dean Seaton has directed a plethora of television episodes, music videos, and sitcom pilots since his debut directing Disney Channel’s top-rated sitcom, “That’s So Raven” in 2004, but he’s dreamt of being a comic book creator since his childhood in Cleveland, Ohio. Eric, his wife, son and daughter live in California.

Beau contacted me to be on Crowdfinderds but hewasn't sure if he was a good choice because he had to put his book, INside, on hiatus because he got a traffic fine. It sounded interesting, it was. Not all about comics, but a fun freewheeling discussion.

More on Replicator
Set in England 10 years from now after an epidemic known as the red death has brought the country to its knees, a scientist heralded as its savior goes missing. Her husband is blamed for her death, is jailed and begins to lose his mind.
Due to lack of evidence he is released and starts to investigate his wife's disappearance. He finds the partially completed cure, a miracle drug she was developing before she disappeared, the proof that could clear him. However, his distrust of the world he lives in convinces him he has only one option, he injects himself with the serum she created.
He gains strange and unique powers and will stop at nothing until he finds his wife and uncovers the truth. With the whole world still wanting nothing more then the end of his existence.
The closer to the truth, the deeper his insanity.
