One of our great joys every month is sifting through the latest issue of VIDEO WATCHDOG, one of the few great genre periodicals left.  So we were all predisposed to enjoy Colin's chat with the couple who bring that fine publication to life, publisher/author Tim Lucas, and his lovely and talented wife Donna, who is responsible for the distinctive look of "The Dog", as it's casually known among readers.

It was made an even greater treat to discover that, in addition to being immensely talented, Tim and Donna are just wonderful, fun people. Just watch how Donna reacts when it comes out that she and Colin have something in common in the area of music.




Rikki Simons, probably best known as the voice of GIR on "Invader ZIM" is also one of the artists responsible for the show's distinctive computer background.  He has also worked on other shows as well, like "Jackie Chan Adventures".

However, he is arguably at this best when working in the field of comics with his wife and partner, Tavisha Wolfgarth-Simons.  As cat lovers, we at Studio Kaiju love their hilarious books, "Super Information Hijinks Reality Check!" and its spinoff, "Ranklechick and His Three-Legged Cat".  But they have produced some absolutely beautiful work in a serious vein, such as Tokyo Pop's "ShutterBox".

Check out the interview below, and don't forget to go to to see some of their work.






The legendary "Writer of Stuff" and author of COMICS BUYERS GUIDE's "But I Digress" column took a few minutes from his busy schedule to talk to Colin at Motor City Comic Con about many of the legendary figures he's worked with, including The Hulk and The Little Mermaid. (He was also surprised to find out that Judy has copies of the ultra-rare JELLY BABY CHRONICLES with his pre-celebrity Doctor Who/Milne crossover, "Doctor Pooh"...But we digress.)






Here Colin talks to Mom and Dad's old friend, Greg Hyland, about his work on the cult comic, Lethargic Lad, and how his fixation with Star Wars Legos led to a steady gig working for the company.  As the line was not public knowledge at the time, Greg wasn't able to tell us during the interview, but that's his very distinctive art style adorning the Batman Lego boxes.

Greg is a genuinely funny guy.  Check out his website, toshare the madness.
