Movie Meltdown - Episode 508

This episode we’re joined by special guest Tony Moore. Now you probably know Tony as the co-creator of The Walking Dead comic series. Or if you are more of a comic fan, you also may know his titles like Battle Pope, Fear Agent and The Exterminators. And of course, in recent years, you’ve seen his work as part of several huge series for some of Marvel’s biggest characters.

But as usual, in our on-going series with artists, we’re going to start at the beginning and find out where Tony’s inspiration started, how it led to his success, and of course along the way… we’ll see just how the movies tie into his journey.

And as we work as hard as we can to put the toys back in the box before we’re done, we also bring up… Saturday-morning cartoons, detail-oriented, the thrill of being legitimately disturbed by something I've watched, 28 Days Later, Image Comics, Batman Returns, this infinity of drawing space, Mad Magazine, we got a literal death threats over that book, instant access, Lobo, Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn, teaching illustration principles, entomology, so we had all the monsters that live in the Marvel Universe are like huddled in the sewers of New York City, I don't remember a time, ever, in my life that I wasn't drawing, Deadpool, taking tests competitively, Dark Horse Comics, Rohs Opera House, X-Men, a comics version of Louis L'Amour, pop culture junkie, Rick Remender, hillbilly heathens, Spike Lee, Masters of the Universe, corporate comics, EC Comics, Franken-Castle, a presentation on The Body Farm, Vampire: The Masquerade and we’ll do this thing... it'll be offensive… we'll get famous... it'll be awesome.

“I always say… it’s like we were standing in the ocean, holding a surfboard, and had no clue that the wave of a lifetime was right behind us.”
