ACME guest Jason “Gonzo” Gonzalez along with my old pal Negative Steve interviewed me last weekend. We covered my start in comics and how I got into them as a kid. Lots of Jack Kirby and Hero Initiative talk as well as the announcement of a new ACME project. EVOLVE. Vol.1 is coming at the start of 2015. Listen for the sound of me opening a beer at the 30 minute mark, and for the list of artists contributing to EVOLVE at the end of the interview. – https://soundcloud.com/propagandapodcasts/cult-of-popture-10-by-popular-demand-episode-nine
I just wanted to thank each and every one of our super great guests, our amazing crowd, and some wonderful sponsors for making ACME 3 the biggest and best event yet.
A very special thanks to Stuart and Kathryn Immonen for their generosity, graciousness and being all around a couple of the nicest people I have had the pleasure to meet. Cory Walker is amazing, and provided me with the best promotional artwork I could ever ask for, I can’t thank these three enough for their support.
Samurai Comics and Bookmans Entertainment Exchange once again became flagship sponsors early on and helped immensely. Andrew Turk and Polsinelli Associates & The National Comedy Theater were new sponsors this year and really helped out, both are wonderful companies and people to work with. Acme Prints once again stepped up to provide all of our great marketing materials and went out of their way to help us. FilmBar Phoenix was an excellent spot to hold our first ever ACME gallery showing, and we’re very happy to partner with them for our exhibit that runs through May. Lastly, a big thanks to Cheba Hut for providing all ACME guests with delicious sub sandwiches!
Thousands of comic fans funneled through the store on Saturday and I hope each of you had a great time. Keep an eye out for other ACME events coming later this year and we’ll see you next May for ACME 4: The Bride of ACME!
