Comics of Doom: Episode 127: Top Cow’s Matt Hawkins
July 17th, 2012 at 6:00 pm | |
Hey there comics fans!
Sure, we know, San Diego Comic-Con is over and done with, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun with comics and comic-related things! Heck, no! In fact, if you’re needing your comics high to keep going and growing throughout the week, then have we got your prescription! On this episode of Comics of Doom, Hunter takes a seat with Matt Hawkins, Top Cow president and writer of the upcoming series Think Tank, to discuss his day-to-day work, as well as his comic. Now, this isn’t all that they talk about by any means, in fact, Matt takes Hunter to school for about thirty minutes when he talks all about the modern marvels of science and how they influenced Think Tank.
The comic looks really cool, and I hope you guys give this a listen because I think anyone who’s into science and stuff will have a great time!
