Blake McCarthy on life, family, and personal growth through storytelling

podcast art

Blake MCcarthy sits down with Eva to explore the story behind the story of his new comic, Territory, life as a first-time comics creator, family, personal growth and character development, and so much more. This is Blake’s first interview anywhere! Get it here first!

Note: This interview was recorded in February, and was always supposed to be timed to coincide with the launch of the book. Now that the book is coming out, it’s time to drop the interview. You’ll notice this one uses the older format, and there are mentions of spring releases. That’s why. Still a fantastic show.

We cover the whole spectrum of comics creativity, from writers and pencilers to editors and inkers. We also feature hot new talent for you to sink your teeth into. Not literally though. That would be weird.
