Episode 63: Pen to Rubber with Aaron Conley and Damon Gentry

Welcome to another installment of The Hour Cosmic, your favorite comics game show! This week, our guests are the creators of "Sabretooth Swordsman," Damon Gentry and Aaron Conley!

On this week’s show, among other things, we discuss:

- Ultimicity!
- The best Ninja Turtle!
- The Machete Order!
Let's meet our guests, shall we?

Aaron Conley and Damon Gentry are the co-creators of "Sabretooth Swordsman," an original graphic novel from Dark Horse Comics. They are currently, and happily, working on Volume 2 for Dark Horse, hopefully due in 2015. Outside of their tiger-themed work, Gentry wrote a story for "Eerie" #2, which was illustrated by friend of the show Mike Allred, and drew a pin-up in "Shaolin Cowboy" #1. Conley has done covers and pin ups for books like "Regular Show: Skips," "Shaolin Cowboy," "Creepy," "Undertow," "Prophet" and "It Girl and the Atomics." You can find them at their website, you can follow Damon on Twitter (@invademyprivacy), and Aaron on Instagram (@aaronconley77) - and make sure to look out for a new 8-page color "Sabretooth Swordsman" appearing in the relaucnhed "Dark Horse Presents" #1 in August.

As always, your hosts are:

Brian Salvatore – New Jerseyan, New York Mets enthusiast, host of “Input/Output,” a music podcast, and occasional blogger/freelance writer. He has never met a dog he didn’t like (even that one that bit his leg when he was 10), and has baked better bread than he ever thought possible.

Chad Bowers – South Carolinian, GI Joe enthusiast, co-writer of “Subatomic Party Girls" “Down Set Fight,” and “Awesome Hospital” with Chris Sims, and writer of “Monster Plus.” He teaches us cool expressions like “Oh, snakes!” and has a lot of opinions about barbeque.

Matthew Meylikhov – Bostonian, cat and beard enthusiast, co-writer of “Detective Space Cat” with Colin Bell, writer of “Morning Glories Babies,” "Morning Glories Academy Study Hall" (both backmatter for the Image Comics series "Morning Glories") and “Control,” and letterer extraordinaire. He reads more comics than anyone on the planet, and has sworn off White Castle for life.
