People, you cannot get this show started quick enough. This has to be one of our favorite interviews to date, and we’ve done a lot of them over the last five years. We got to sit down with actor David Dastmalchian to discuss his brand new comic Count Crowley from Dark Horse Comics.
If you’re not familiar with David’s name, you probably recognize his film. From The Dark Knight to Ant-Man/Ant-Man and the Wasp to Blade Runner 2049 to Gotham to The Flash and so many more. He came back home to Kansas City a few years ago to film his own movie, All Creatures Here Below, which also starred Karen Gillan. Heck, he’s a former Clint’s Kid going back to the days of the Metcalf South location.
Next week, David’s first comic, Count Crowley, hits shelves, and we can’t wait for you to read this book. Along with Lukas Ketner and Lauren Affe, David has created a spooky horror book that is perfect for the Halloween season. TV news reporter Jerri Bartman finds herself at the end of her career and forced to become the horror movie host Count Crowley at the local station. But creatures of the dark come out late at night, and find themselves drawn to the new Count Crowley.
To support this new book, David will be traveling the country to bring Count Crowley to a comic book store near you. Mark your calendars now for November 2 if you are in the Kansas City area. David will be at Clint’s Comics in Kansas City from 11 AM to 1 PM that day, followed by a visit to Chop’s Comics in Lawrence, KS, from 2 to 4 PM.
We start the show by getting our weekly Pick 3 selections for new books coming out on October 23. In addition to the obvious choice of Count Crowley, we pick a pair of books from Jason Aaron and a Superman-Naomi team-up.
