54. Jim Rugg Returns! (Octobriana 1976, Cartoonist Kayfabe)

WITS' END

Pittsburgh-based cartoonist Jim Rugg is a walking encyclopedia of comics history and a testament to the advancement of the comics craft. In this episode, Rugg returns to Wits’ End to talk to (host) Shah Emami about comics. The conversation starts off by covering the who, what, when, where and why of Rugg’s OCTOBRIANA 1976 comic. With OCTOBRIANA 1976, Jim Rugg breaks ground in how comics are made. The outlaw comic, successfully crowdfunded through Kickstarter, is the first fluorescent blacklight comic book of its kind. This conversation is Rugg’s first time talking about his Octobriana comic since the Kickstarter ended. During the talk, Shah & Rugg talk about the differences between the appeal of western comics and manga, Octobriana’s creator Petr Sadecky, the rights of creators (ex. Jack Kirby & Dave Cockrum), Rugg’s work on Cartoonist Kayfabe (with Ed Piskor), funding his first Kickstarter, 70s comics & much more.

Jim Rugg

Speech Bubble

Jim Rugg is the Ignatz and Eisner award-winning cartoonist behind Street Angel, (co-written with friend Brian Maruca) Afrodisiac, Rambo 3.5, SuperMag and The P.L.A.I.N. Janes, which is co-written by past Speech Bubble guest Cecil Castellucci. But these days he is best known as one half of the immensely popular Cartoonist Kayfabe YouTube channel with Ed Piskor (Hip-Hop Family Tree, X-Men Grand Design, and the upcoming Red Room) Though based in Pittsburgh, prior to COVID-19 and the proximity precautions that come with it, Jim was scheduled to attend The Toronto Cartoon Art Festival in May 2020 in support of Street Angel: Deadliest Girl Alive from Image Comics and The P.L.A.I.N. Janes from Little Brown and Company, but formerly published by DC Comics' now defunct Minx imprint. There, he was going to surprise attendees with his latest project, Octobriana 1976 -- the world's first black light comic book -- with AdHouse Books. In light of the pandemic, Jim has switched gears and he is now funding Octobriana 1976 on Kickstarter from now until June 18, 2020 at 5 p.m. EST. He comes to Speech Bubble in support of Octobriana where we talk about Octobriana's strange and controversial origin story, why Jim decided to print this comic with fluorescent ink and why rebellious women are characters he keeps coming back to. We also talk about his collaborators: Shelly Bond, Cecil Castellucci and Brian Maruca, while tracing his journey from self-taught comics fan to a professional cartoonist who has taught others at the School of Visual Art. For all you Cartoonist Kayfabe fans, we talk about the way the channel has suddenly become important to the larger comic book community and some very high-profile creators. We get behind what fans of the channel know as "The Cartoonist Kayfabe Bump" and Jim talks about his strategies for back issue diving and he speculates with Aaron about what the comic industry may look like post-pandemic.
