Episode 24: Emma Steinkellner and Norm Harper

THE WRITERS BLOCK w/ David Avallone and Rylend Grant

THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT. David and Rylend have a state of the kids/Y.A. comic union pow-wow with Eisner nominees Norm Harper (Rikki, Haphaven) and Emma Steinkellner (Quince, The Okay Witch). Rylend is made more than a bit jealous when he puts eyes on the grand lego city Norm has built in his spare bedroom... but he’s borderline inconsolable when he learns that the residents of said town elected Norm Mayor-for-life.BE SURE TO BACK THE JUMP #2 on Kickstarter: bit.ly/thejump2EMMA STEINKELLNERTwitter: @emsteinkellnerInstagram: @emsteinkellnerWebsite: emmasteinkellner.comNORM HARPERTwitter: @ThatNormDudeInstagram: @ThatNormDudeWebsite: thatnormdude.com --Please leave us a rating on Apple Podcasts/iTunes!-- Website: pendantaudio.com Twitter: @pendantweb Facebook: facebook.com/pendantaudio Tumblr: pendantaudio.tumblr.com YouTube: youtube.com/pendantproductions

IndiComix Ep 101: ‘The Sequels’ with Norm Harper, Val Halvorson and Bobby Timony

IndiComix

We are back in full swing and this month covering The Sequels from Fanbase Press with Norm Harper and the amazing artists Val Halvorson and Bobby Timony! Synopsis: Remember the ‘80s? Avery, Gwen, Russell, and Dakota will never forget. As children, they each experienced unique adventures . . . saving the life of a sentient robot, partying with an intergalactic alien, battling the likes of vampires and werewolves, and defeating a nightmarish monster to protect imagination itself. Now, 30 years later, they’re directionless adults, still obsessed with their pasts. When a mysterious figure brings the group together to cope with their experiences, will they be prepared to live out the “sequels” to their childhood adventures? Buy The Sequels on Comixology and preorder on Fanbase’s website! Meet the Creators Photo credit: Jeff Katz Norm Harper Norm Harper is a creator whose previous works include the YA graphic novel, Haphaven, and the Eisner-nominated Rikki.

In addition to illustrating, they also like to write comics and they are not kind to their characters.

Like, *really* like THE SEQUELS! Published by Fanbase Press, written by Norm Harper, with art by Val Halvorson and Bobby Timony, it has been ticking all of our boxes in terms of '80s nostalgia, sci-fi, horror and action tropes and a wonderful sense of empowerment and self-analysis that you don't often find in modern comics.(Seriously, we've flipped for this book: do check out Samantha Maybe's reviews for Issues #1 and #2, here http://theconventioncollective.com/sandbox/the-sequels-1-holy-80s-nostalgia-batman, and here http://theconventioncollective.com/sandbox/the-sequels-2-review-testing-the-limits-of-friendship-in-space)At Emerald City Comic Con, Samantha was given the chance to talk to writer Norm Harper about the book, about what drove him to write it, about the methods he took to tackling some of the more fundamental underpinnings of THE SEQUELS in terms of how it deals with mental health, and what he has in store for the book down the line as well as his upcoming book, HAPHAVEN. It's a great chat and we hope you enjoy...Thanks to Norm for taking time out of his busy con, and to Samantha for bringing the interview to us…

Live @ APE: How to Build an Audience from Stratch with Gwendolyn Dreyer and Norm Harper

The Complete Creative

This past week I put together another How to Build an Audience from Scratch panel for Alternative Press Expo 2016. While this is the same title as my panel from Long Beach Comic Con, I promise the information is very different. In fact, I’m pretty sure I could do this panel 20 times a year and get different information from every single one. Of course, that’s because I keep mixing up the panelist. This time we have Gwendolyn Dreyer, business manager of editor of Monster Elementary (www.monsterelementary.com; @monsterelem on twitter), and Norm Harper, publisher of Karate Petshop (www.karatepetshop.com; @karatepetshop on twitter). I specifically brought in Norm and Gwen because they are very different than my last panelists. Norm is a new publisher who has been in business for only one year. So we talked about how he is going about building an audience from scratch right now, today. His insights are very different than Gwen’s, who has been working on Monster Elementary for several years. Since she is not a publisher, her insights come from a singular product point of view. While they have multiple volumes of Monster Elementary, they are focused on a single product instead of a line of products. Both Norm and Gwen gave fantastic insights on what they would do if they could wipe the slate clean and start again. Our conversation was very focused on new creators getting started today, but the tactics, tips, and strategies we talk about can be used for anybody at any stage of their career. I hope you enjoy this episode with Gwen and Norm!
