This week, we renew our nostalgia for exploitation comics and galaxies far, far away.
Don’t miss this Friday’s Geek Hard where Andrew and Mr. Green will introduce you to “The evil smashing, sucka trashing, party crashing reincarnated private eye defending the south side of Chicago from crime and The Man”: Disco Frankenstein! Joining the guys via phone will be Disco’s creator, Anthony Ball, to tell us all about the Kickstarter campaign currently running to make this crime/horror comic a reality. Anthony will fill us in on the origins of the idea and give us a bit more info on the story and what cool perks await if you support the crowdfunding campaign. Here’s a quick synopsis of the first upcoming story arc for Disco Frankenstein.
Hailing from the south side of Chicago, Anthony Ball has been reading and collecting comics all his life. Formerly a legal assistant / paralegal, he’s now the caregiver to his elderly mother. Needing a release from his old 9-5 job and caregiving duties, he started writing comic scripts 7 years ago and through trial and error, has a few solid story concepts that he’s excited to unleash upon comic audiences. Besides being the editor of the ongoing WonderFunders anthology series, he also has a short story, Bruce, in Anomalous Comics’ horror anthology, Send in the Clowns.
Be sure to check out the Disco Frankenstein Kickstarter page and listen this Friday as we talk with Anthony about this tribute to Universal Monsters and 70s cinema.
But that’s not all! Geek Hard will also be taking a trip to the theatre to catch a stage show that is out of this world. The One-Man Star Wars Trilogy (performed by Charlie Ross) is coming to the Bluma Appel Theatre this Wednesday to Sunday (April 27th to May 1st) and Geek Hard is taking in the show. Charlie has recently performed in Chicago, Miami, Ottawa and New Jersey and is set to reenact the battle between the rebels and the empire for 5 nights in Toronto. But will the force be strong with this one when we give our review? Find out this Friday.
All this, plus the news and reviews that you’ve come to expect, right here on Geek Hard. Listen LIVE! This Friday at 7pm Eastern on www.realityradio101.com. Do or do not, there is no try……but definitely do.
If you’re gonna geek out, GEEK HARD!
