Matt Kindt joins Adam Witt to discuss… a little bit of everything! We get into a lot of MIND MGMT stuff: what’s in store for the next arc, where the story originated, how long it’s planned for, and more. We talk about Matt’s favorite writers and artists. Matt talks about his new graphic novel, RED HANDED: THE FINE ART OF STRANGE CRIMES, due in May from First Second. And it wouldn’t be an episode of Comics Will Break Your Heart without a bunch of diversions, would it? Listen for all of this and much more!

TERRY GANT - EPISODE 04

On this episode (streaming above), we talk to Terry Gant, the owner of Third Coast Comics — one of Chicago’s most diverse and interesting shops. We talk about what brought Terry to the comics retail game, his background as a student, a professional — and any talk like this wouldn’t be complete without talking comics, right? There’s plenty of that here. Terry tells some of his best stories as a fan.

We also talk about movies, the guys behind the comics, and the sort of experiences you can only find as a friend of the brick-and-mortar comic book stores.

Some weird circumstances led to this being posted late — overshooting some things Terry wanted to promote that were coming up at the store. My apologies to Terry, and anyone who might’ve been interested in going. That being said, everything mentioned is the sort of thing that Terry does all the time — which speaks to a sliver of what makes Third Coast stand out among the many comic shops in Chicago.

Tom tells us about the forthcoming American Barbarian hardcover — if you’d like to order it from your local comic shop, give them Diamond order code DEC11 0771 — and tell them to order a copy for the shelf, while they’re at it!

In this episode, we chat with Tom Scioli. We cover much ground: from his work — all through Myth of 8 - Opus, Godland, and the currently-running American Barbarian, to his art training, background, and influences — specifically, of course, the presence of Jack Kirby in his art.

There’s a bit of crackling on Tom’s line that couldn’t be edited. Our most sincere apologies.

On our first episode (which is streaming up top), we talk with acclaimed creator Paul Hornschemeier about his life and work in the comics industry. Also, somehow, there’s quite a bit of talk about movies.

Later this week, I’ll be posting an essay about his work. It starts like this:

"When I started reading Paul Hornschemeier’s books, I hadn’t seen anything like them. I’d been reading comics for 14 years — the majority of the 17 I’d lived up to that point — and I stuck to superhero stories. Once in a while, I’d check out a Vertigo book, but that was only because I’d learned names like Warren Ellis and Grant Morrison from their mainstream work. Hornschemeier was a strange, bright, and new discovery in comics for me. A year or two after I ordered Mother, Come Home from the comic shop I worked at, I started reading the novels that would shape the way I thought about the world, and about literature: On the Road, Slaughterhouse-Five, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. The only common thread these stories carry, for me, beyond their mutual and incredible quality, is the fact that I got the same feeling reading all of them — a feeling that it’d be a waste of time trying to articulate. If a story has ever changed your life, you know what I’m talking about.


Paul Hornschemeier’s stories have the power to make you feel this again and again and again.”

If you’re here because of the mention on Loikamania…

Hold tight! The first episode will be posted on Friday.

And, furthermore: thank you.
