Special Edition Podcast

Talksplode #10 with Chris Eliopoulos of ‘Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers’, ‘Franklin Richards’, and ‘Misery Loves Sherman’

Show Notes

Josh Flanagan talks with our favorite multitasker in comics about his work on Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers, Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius, and his daily webcomic, Misery Loves Sherman. Chris even manages to talk about lettering, which makes sense since in addition to all these other projects, he’s one of the leading letterers in comics. Plus he has no recollection of the knish event of New York Comic Con 2008.

  1. Pet Avengers was a blast.  I hope it does well enough to spawn more minis.  The idea of West Coast Pet Avengers is hilarious to no end.

  2. This is a great interview. Great window into how the writing is done and I will definitely see myself being a fan of Eliopoulos.


    On a side note, is it me or do Josh and Chris actually sound the same and have the same voice inflections?

  3. Thanks!

  4. no, but seriously, how hard can it be?

  5. Nice episode.

  6. ! it’s so cool to hear a conversation about crafting comics that was fun and informative as oppose to clinical and laborious. A great interview, a dob of the cap to you, sirs. 

  7. I really, really, really want a Mort plushie.

  8. Chris’ "common mistakes" made me feel like a less crappy designer. 🙂

  9. Avatar photo Jeff Reid (@JeffRReid) says:

    For about ten minutes in the conversation, I thought Chris’s webcomic was called "Misery Loves German."  I was quite confused by this title.  Was this some type of "Hogan’s Heroes" type comedy?  Then, I just listened a little closer and felt foolish.
