Episode 198: Eric Shanower

The Great Big Beautiful Podcast

This week, we're traveling to Ancient Greece with Eric Shanower's epic Age of Bronze series. Shanower first began his story way back in the Dark Ages of 1998. And yes, he's still working on the series 20 years later. It's that big. After a break from the series - during which time he worked on projects such as the Oz series for Marvel and Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland for IDW - he's going back to Age of Bronze. To the beginning and to the future. On this episode, Shiri and I talk to Eric about working on Age of Bronze for 20 years - where it's come from, where it's going, and how it's changed - simultaneously going back to the beginning of the story and moving forward, and working in the classic sandboxes of Oz and Dreamland with Little Nemo.

We have Eric Shanower on! It was amazing to talk to him and we can’t explain how excited we are for this episode. It was such a pleasure to talk to him and we hope you enjoy! Via IDW Synopsis: “An all-new, all-ages series full of magic and whimsy from award-winning creators Eric Shanower (Adventures in Oz) and Gabriel Rodriguez (Locke & Key)! Spinning out of Winsor McKay’s brilliant early 20th century strip, Little Nemo in Slumberland sees King Morpheus’ daughter, in the Royal Palace of Slumberland, select her next-playmate: Nemo! Only Nemo has no interest in being anyone’s playmate, dream or no dream!” Via IDW Via IDW To find and buy Little Nemo Return to Slumberland go to your local comic book store, Comixology , IDW’s website, and Amazon! As you can see, the art is amazing and Gabriel Rodriguez is absolutely fantastic at bringing the world from 1905 back to life! To hear what we think of the book, tune in on the next episode! ERIC JAMES SHANOWER was born in Key West, Florida, on October 23, to James Lowell Shanower and Karen Elizabeth Shanower (nee Hietanen). The family soon moved to Hawaii, where they lived on the islands of Kauai–where Eric’s sister, Elizabeth Edna Shanower, was born–and Oahu. The Shanower family subsequently lived in Monterey, California; Laurel, Maryland; Norfolk, Virginia; Port Angeles, Washington; Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; and Novato, California. Early in life Eric showed interest in drawing and in creating stories. At six years of age he discovered the series of Oz books by L. Frank Baum (and others) and decided to continue the Oz series with his own books. He began with amateur efforts, producing several illustrated manuscripts during the next decade. After graduation from Novato (California) High School, he attended the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art in Dover, New Jersey. On the day after graduation, he received his first professional comics assignment, lettering an issue of the comic book Warp, published by First Comics.

As we enter December, the last month of Year One of not just the Gutter Talk podcast but the site as a whole, we pause a little to reflect on just how much we’ve accomplished in that time. But not for too long. Not only are we still not done, we’ve just barely scratched the surface. That trend continues with the first podcast of December, yet another amazing artist we can add to our guest list, Eric Shanower. Join Adam and Eric as they meet at an amazing San Diego restaurant, Alchemy, to discuss mostly comics but even a little personal history similarities.
