“Talkin Comics” & “Living 4 Crits”: interview & review

We have some fun new press coverage to share with you today!

TALKING COMICS

We spoke with Stephanie at Talking Comics. Stephanie found us when we put a call out on Twitter saying this:

We were interested in having a more balanced set of interviews. We love talking to everybody, but we suspected that we might get more out of an interview when talking to a person who was a woman (for example, men tend to ask a lot of the same “what is it like to be a woman” and “since when do geek girls exist” questions, and we’d love to talk about other things). And hey—we were right, at least in Stephanie’s case.

Stephanie is an amazing interviewer and I was super interested in her questions and this conversation. Her podcast is called “Talking Comics” but we talked about a lot more than comics. Procrastination, quitting your job with and without a safety net, Nutella lattes, our future as the Aunts from Sabrina the Teenage Witch, which super villain Aubrey wants to be, and our ideal fictional supergroup.

2014 wrap-up | Clicks of past, present and future

Happy Holidays from Portland, friends. It’s come that time of year again, when I try to get my head around the year that’s ending. A time when I re-read these posts from the end of 2011, 2012 and 2013 and remember what a fool I was in the past, every moment until today. Gosh, past Angela was sure ignorant and silly, wasn’t she? Glad that’s all over.
