 Sometimes there's more to art than the art itself. No more is properly demonstrated through the creative dedication of Gonzalo Alvarez. He's the author of the all-ages smash indie comic The Legend of Polloman. He's the ComixCentral's coveted winner for comic of the year. Beyond obvious cultural understanding, Gonzalo's passion for personal and professional impact has reached the eyes and ears of everyone from The Huffington Post to Telemundo Universo and beyond. His risky retro indie game Borders made it to E3's Indiecade and has no sign of stopping. He's got plans for a more expanded Polloman universe, and more games in the works through his gaming company Macua Studios. He's got great in sites for any indie creator out there hoping to say something through art, illustration and storytelling. Listen and expand your outlook on art, or miss out and forever be doomed to mediocrity.

Check out Ben Bishop and his love letter to Sci Fi on this weeks episode of Adventures in Interviewing. The Aggregate: Book Two is the second installment in Ben's lore nodding a head to favorites like Power Rangers, Voltron and more cybernetic nostalgia greatness. The twist: you choose which way the story goes, and there's way more directions than you think. In addition to the story itself, Ben takes the time to share his breakup with art school, his breakout into comics, an email from Kevin Eastman himself and his secret to success in the comic world. 3 words my friends- just make comics. Let's get Ben to his $50k goal so the world can see what choose your own adventure comics really have to offer.

Isabella Acuna is as indie as it gets. Her underground comic, entitled Hikikomori Nation, is a deep dive into the world Trippy Japanese rebellion. It's a post apocalyptic drugged out heroes journey for a group of rag tag anime junkies fighting against tyranny of overly color-fied PC corporate evilness (and that's just issue 1).

In addition to underground clout, Isabella also crushes it as a DJ under the name Nurse Anabella (@lavalampsgirl) of Free Radio Santa Cruz 101.3FM and beyond. If that weren't enough her work has been hailed by the legendary Trina Robbins. It's a pretty perfect stamp of approval considering her comic is a modern take on Zap Comics.

She's interviewed more superstars than you can wave a selfie stick at and has even had an atari game made based on her own badassery. It doesn't get more wild then this my friends.

Take a listen. Take a trip. Take a look at Isabella Acuna. It may be black and white on the surface, but you'll come out the other side a more colorful version of yourself.

Talking all about Craig's latest venture with the Comic Con scene in England, how awesome it all went and what to do about taking the indie comic book marketing to the next level. Then we get to our indie reviews with 3 awesome new books you need to grab.

Barrels by Michael Watson, Jeff Lasley and Crank. All about 1920s moonshine running mobsters in the New York area, all based in historic fiction and dialed in with amazing artwork. Next we got Lost time by JWC in a slice of life drama that will make you laugh, cry and really feel the moments through the pastel colored world. Finishing off with Mysteries of Tong by Studio D 2015 in a very interesting and different style of anime mystery solving adventures. A book with twists and turns one would never expect.

 Power outages and snow storms can all be a hinder to the comic creator, though they do offer some time to catch up on the physical stack of comics. Of course we go on a Superman rant, that somehow leads to Star Wars, of course mixes in with Batman and has a Superman/Super Mario comparison in there as well. Plus some pre plans for upcoming comic cons and new ways to promote.

Then we get some reviews going with 4 awesome, must grab indie comic stories. Adventures of a System Admin by Juan Espinosa all about doing your own business, none of this wasted time at college and working the 9 to 5 like the Dolly Parton song says. No you go your own way but that doesn't mean you might not have a few odd jobs along the way. Then we get to a horror book with zombie like creatures created from Wasps. Already totally awesome but then it goes Angels and Demons to top of the crazy shenanigans in Swarm by Andrew Acosta. We get around to finally checking out Niki Batsprite by  Francesca Urbinati in a beautifully drawn and colored book about protecting the Stones of Balance with an awesome Sonic Adventure feel. And last we get Jack Irons The Steel Cowboy by Wikid Publishing. I'm always sold on anything western like and future western is always bad ass too but this book goes through time as an interesting incarnation story that just is the tip of the iceberg in the first issue. Can't wait to see more.
