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.”
