An Atomic Moo Update

Atomic-Moo-Moocast-Icon-600x600

Hey El Moochadores! It’s been a few days since I posted here, so I thought I’d give a quick update on what’s going on with Atomic Moo. New blog post might be kind of sparse the next few weeks. I’ve been putting in extra time at work, so it might get tough to post about the all the cool geeky creative stuff out there, but there is some good news! Atomic Moocast #113 will be done in a few days. This one should be pretty cool, because we have the original Brethren Moo back on the podcast. Also, Chudd and I have been working really hard on creating original new fan art.KilowogPreview Here’s a sample of a Kilowog portrait I’ve been working on. Chudd did the original sketch, I’ve just been digitally painting over it. It’s not nearly finished yet, but it is helping me keep my sanity. Finally, we’ll be going to Cherry City Comic Con in Salem Oregon at the end of April (April 30th to May 1st). I don’t have table information yet, but I’ll definitely post about it once we have know. We’re really excited for this event, and the chance to podcast from the con. Chudd will also have some original art for sale, and he’s working hard on getting his prints ready. So, yeah. That’s what’s going on with us. I’ll have regular (as regular as I can) post back on the site soon, so keep coming back!

Cheers!

Our Interview with Devin Kraft!

WE’RE BACK! Yeah, it’s been awhile, but that’s only because the unjust gods that rule our universe have been kicking me around like a hacky sack. But enough excuses! We got a Moocast, and you’ve got ears (we hope), so let’s make this happen!

On this episode we’re talking with indie comic maker Devin Kraft! Devin is the creator of a bunch of great comics, like Dragon Slayer, and I really got to apologize to Devin for getting this episode on so late. For this episode he joined the show to promote hisphoto-original Kickstarter for his new comic The Silence: Track One, which was fully funded! Way to go Devin! The Silence is a great looking story about a band of girls (rock band) that set out to find and save their fathers, who’ve been lost at sea. And they do it on a yellow submarine. Groovy.

So, here we go folks. It was hell to make, but now it’s here and ready for your eager ear holes! Go now, and get that salty snack and a cool beverage! Then find your way over to your favorite comfy spot, nestle in and hit play on the best damn podcast your friends don’t know about!

The Untamed #1: A Sinner’s Prayer!

Untamed_Covered

An Atomic Moo Comic Book Review!

A long while back, we were at a comic con (…not sure which one) and some very nice creators gave us a copy of their comic to review. I then took that comic home and put it in “the Pile” with every intention of reviewing it. However; like most things that go into my con-review pile, this comic was quickly swallowed and became a part of the ever growing mountain of comics, promo cards, and posters, that sits next to my computer. d’oh. Then, we attended C4 in Ventura, where we again met these really nice comic creators who, once again, gave me a copy of their comic to read and review — and that comic went into the pile. D’oh! And it probably would have stayed there to for all eternity too, but (to my credit) I’ve been chipping away at this (actually large) geeky stalagmite, and I came across both issues! Ha! So here we go folks! Let’s take a look at The Untamed! Alt Cover

Written by Sebastian A. Jones and illustrated by Peter Bergting; The Untamed is part of Stranger Comics’s world of Asunda. It’s supernatural fantasy about a man who’s returned to the town of Oasis to seek revenge on the people who murdered his wife and daughter. He has seven days to kill seven people responsible for his down fall and a chance to earn his freedom from… something! I bet it’s the devil. Not trying to spoil things (and I really don’t know), but this totally sounds like a devil sort of thing. Anyways…

The comic features incredibly cool art work (inside art by Bergting, with cover art by Hyoung Taek Nam) paired with a story that does of good job of successfully marrying Clint Eastwood’s High Plains Drifter with Conan (Barbarian, not talk show host). A sword swinging stranger wanders into a town of baddies hell bent on revenge is always a great story (well, we’ll exclude any of the Crow sequels from that statement…). Mix in some magic, elves, and what I think was Charon at the beginning: good stuff! As far as any criticism or feed back goes; I think the comic could have used a little bit more exposition in it’s narrative, but then again maybe that would have given too much away. I was only able to read the first issue of seven, all of which can be found in a graphic novel now. Overall though, a very enjoyable comic and worth a reading to the indie comic lovers out there!

I’ve posted a couple of sample pages below, along with the comics proper synopsis. For more information about the Untamed please visit the Stranger comics website, where you can also purchase all seven issues or the graphic novel! Go get it!

Keen.

A cloaked Stranger slips into the rustic Town of Oasis, changing things forever. Ten years it has been since he ran this town with malice and harshness. Even then, there was hope for his soul. His wife and daughter were on the verge of turning him from wickedness. But they were murdered, and so was he. Now he has returned, hell-bent on killing.

Look to the Sky

CNa0VCOW8AEYg2q

A documentary about young people who have shown the spirit of Superman.

Hello El Moochadores! Right now there is a new indiegogo campaign to raise funds for an inspiring feature length film that will “tell the uplifting stories of young people who have demonstrated the iconic spirit of Superman.” The documentary, Look to the Sky, is from the same producers as Legends of the Dark Knight, and they hope to show this film all around the world to raise funds for charitable groups. According to the Indiegogo page, producer Brett Culp is also writing an associated book that will goes “deeper” into the ideas behind Look to the Sky. The Indiegogo has just recently launched, and they’re trying to raise $90,000.00 to produce this documentary. I’ve posted the promotional video (which includes the films trailer) below, but would be contributors can hit the above links to check out rewards.

Enjoy and we hope you’ll support this project.

The Morning Moo!

Chewy

Featuring a Cool New Kickstarter and Some Animated Tom Waits!

Good morning El Moochadores! Well, I got my computer back to normal. Mostly. So, things should be back to the regular level of panic (pre-hard drive crash) as we do our best and put out the metaphorical fires that continually burn us around here. Figuratively. Anyways, the last few days have sucked, but I’m kind of in a good mood. So let’s start this Morning Moo off with a Chewbacca Toilet Paper Dispenser!

Yeah, that was awesome. Okay, so on this Morning Moo, we got a cool new Kickstarter for a novel called Blood Fuel and a really cool animation of an old interview with musician Tom Waits. Not that I’m a big Tom Waits fan (he’s cool), I just really dug the animation.

Here we go…

Blood Fuel!

3919256ba4a290474d065fefba648728_original (1)

Launching just this week on the old Kickstarter (and already than half way to their goal) is a gritty new post-apocalyptic novel by brothers Caleb and Luke Prochnow. Blood Fuel is a blood, metal and death story of two brothers trying to cross over into an elite world. Here’s the synopsis:4c1d5807d412b6afa22ee27e199b0fe0_original

Blood Fuel is set in the distant future. A dark post-apocalyptic caste society that relies on the bloody entertainment of the racetracks in order to dull the hopelessness that would soon overtake the masses. The racing circuits, like the caste society are divided based on the populations wealth, rank and occupation. It is extremely difficult for a racer to cross over into a circuit outside of his/her caste. Desperation causes two brothers, Ryan and Ed, to attempt to cross that divide and enter sinister worlds that they did not know existed.

They’re actually offering two versions of the first chapter (here) which people can vote on to see which will be used in the book. Currently they’re seeking a goal of $4,500.00 to help publish the book. I also think it’s pretty cool that they designed a set of models to show the different mechs and killer machines that go along with the story. Anyways, click the Kickstarter link above to see more about the campaign, rewards, stretch goals, and information about the story. I’ve posted the promo video below.

Enjoy.

Tom Waits on Everything and Nothing

TomWaits

PBS Digital Studios and Blank on Blank have produced this great series of animations that pair old recorded interviews of celebrities and artists like Johnny Cash, Hunter S. Thompson, and Tom Wait, with animations. Check out the Tom Wait interview below from a recorded interview in 1988 as told to Chris Roberts. The rest of this interview can be found at blankonblank.org.

The Empress Game

Empress-Game

An Atomic Moo Book Review

I kind of have to apologize to Titan Books for this one. They graciously sent me a copy of this book to review many months ago, and I’ve only just recently had the chance to read it. D’oh. My bad.

All the same though; Rhonda Mason’s space saga, The Empress Games is an exciting new science fiction epic with some very groovy old school vibes. It had a great blend of fantasy-futurism, action, and politics that was reminiscent of Dune, Star Wars, or even Asimov’s Foundation trilogy. Here’s the synopsis:

One seat on the intergalactic Sakien Empire’s supreme ruling body, the Council of Seven, remains unfilled: that of the Empress Apparent. The seat isn’t won by votes or marriage. It’s won in a tournament of ritualized combat. Now the tournament, the Empress Game, has been called and the women of the empire will stop at nothing to secure political domination for their homeworlds. Kayla Reunimon, a supreme fighter, is called by a mysterious stranger to battle it out in the arena.

So, basically: A scantly clad warrior space babe is enlisted to save an empire she here self is hiding from. Excellent. Though some of Mason’s story comes close to hitting some other common sci-fi tropes (the villain isn’t too far off from many other mad scientist and sinister politicians from like stories, and the Ordochian’s powers kinda feels like “the force.” Just kind of…), she does add her own unique twist that creates strong characters and an exciting tale. I think I mostly enjoyed this book for the political world Mason created and the ongoing potential to trap Kayla in that world. Though I don’t want to spoil anything, it’ll be interesting to read (in future books) what happens to Kayla’s relationship to the empire and with her own people.

The Empress Game is currently available in most book stores or you can order your copy online from Titan Books.
