The WAYNE GALE VARIETY HOUR ep.68: COMIC BOOK LIFE LESSONS with ZANDER CANNON

wg68

On the 68th episode of the WAYNE GALE VARIETY HOUR, DANNO KLONOWSKI is joined by a friend, writer, and THE BEST CARTOONIST of 2014 ZANDER CANNON!!! 

FIRST: DANNO totally messes up, so to learn LOTS MORE about ZANDER’s comic career, click HERE!!!  Otherwise, be sure to pick up his award-winning book HECK and look forward to the upcoming KAIJUMAX!!!  

ZANDER and DANNO have some UNO HITTRES including: The legacy of JACK KIRBYPACIFIC RIM, MIRAGE MEN, TROLL HUNTER, MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS, DANNO runs into COLIN HANKS, and MORE!

AND THEN: ZANDER’s knowledge of cartoonist and SPAWN creator TODD McFARLANE is tested on the WAYNE GALE VARIETY HOUR MOVIE GAME!

FINALLY: ZANDER and DANNO have both made a lot of comics in their lives. They have also read a lot of comics, and a lot of those comics were pretty terrible and helped shape the work DANNO and ZANDER would eventually create.  So both ZANDER and DANNO pick five comics issues/series/or creators who  influenced them…not in their greatness, but in their mistakes, and what the fellas took away as COMIC BOOK LIFE LESSONS.

Thanks as always to you for listening!

LUTEFISK SUSHI PODCAST episode 22: Live from SPRINGCON with Justin Skarhus of 2D Cloud, Brad McGinty, Zander Cannon & Lupi McGinty

In the twenty-second episode host DANNO KLONOWSKI is joined live for a panel recorded at the recent Springcon in St Paul by JUSTIN SKARHUS of 2D CLOUD, BRAD McGINTY, and previous Sushi Podcast guests ZANDER CANNON, and LUPI McGINTY.  Unlike previous one-on-one creator talks, this episode instead gets rather meta as we discuss the very notion of comic book conventions, what it means to be indie creators tabling fandom shows, and if in this age of interwebs and kickstarters if comic cons are even a relevant outlet and necessity for getting our work to the masses. Since it was recorded live at the con in a ‘room’ made up of cloth partitions there is plenty of ambient con noise, and you, the listening audience, will feel like you were really there!  Thanks to Nick Post and the fine folks at the MCBA for making this possible!

LUTEFISK SUSHI PODCAST episode 20: ZANDER CANNON

In the twentieth episode host DANNO KLONOWSKI talks with MN cartoonist ZANDER CANNON in-depth about his nearly 20 year career: stealing table space at San Diego Comic Con, discovering what motivates a robot, the joys of piecing together Alan Moore’s mental set designs, and all the exclusive insider dirt on the CHAINSAW VIGILANTE you’ve been craving!

Lutefisk Sushi Podcast episode 11: The Nordeast Comics Summit (Dec 2011) “Game Show Time!”

In the eleventh episode host DANNO KLONOWSKI is joined again by KEVIN CANNON to introduce this months NORDEAST COMICS SUMMIT : “Game Show Time”.  That’s right, to celebrate the end of the year (and the ninth anniversary of the International Cartoonist Conspiracy), Kevin and Conspiracy Grand Poo-bah Steve Stwalley put on a game show with an interactive Jeopardy-style game board, mind-bending questions about both local and national comics and cartoonists, and honest-to-goodness valuable prizes!  All were asked to show up early and put their name into a hat.  Steve (as you’ll hear) drew the names randomly and two teams of three players were selected.  Lets meet the fierce competitors, shall we:

TEAM GREEN: Nicholas Straight, episode 6 guest Lupi McGinty, and Zander Cannon

TEAM YELLOW:  Episode 2 guest Athena Currier, Danno Klonowski (I know, I know. I assure it was random!), and Timothy Foss

There were also five 30 second “DRAW” rounds where all six player had to draw the same thing. The audience then voted for the best (teams) drawing.  Here are the winners (you’ll have to listen to find out which team they belong to):

The next Nordeast Comics Summit will be on JANUARY 5th, from 6-6:30 at Big Time Attic: 1618 Central Ave NE, Ste. 216, MPLS, MN 55413
