Welcome to Oppositeland

Tom Peyer, writer and editor-in-chief at Ahoy Comics, talks about the Dragonfly and Dragonflyman series, a prequel to The Wrong Earth. Two heroes—Dragonfly and Dragonflyman—find themselves on each other's worlds, two places which could not be more different. On gritty Earth-Omega, Dragonfly prowls the darkness for his evil prey; on sun-splashed Earth-Alpha, Dragonflyman protects the status quo.

Peyer talks about the two different heroes and the worlds they come from and how each adapts when the big switch happens. We also look at the other titles available from Ahoy and what is coming in the near future.

Greetings from Sweden

For the last show of 2019, I speak to Swedish musician Yajna. Her music touches on a dark part of her life and her goal to rise from it and move forward. Yajna talks about these experiences and how the music helped her. But she has much more to share! Prior to working in music, she was active in the action sports scene and remains so today. She also has a documentary film making its way around the indie film festival circuit and a book in the works.

Following this interview, enjoy her song, “You Are Beautiful,” one of a trilogy of songs that she has released.

Giving up Heaven for the one you love

It's a topic that Chris Callahan addresses in his comic, “The Misplaced,” available through Source Point Press, Comixology, and many others. In this series, we follow James, who dies in a shipwreck with his wife, only to wake up in Heaven to find that his wife is nowhere to be found. So what does he do? He leaves the afterlife on a quest to find his lost love.

What's even more amazing than the story is the art that brings it to life, and Christ talks about his unique style and how he came up with it. We also touch on conventions and his experiences with them.
