For today’s episode, Mike had the pleasure of sitting down with Brazilian artist Aluisio Santos. Published by Image Comics and written by Kurtis Wiebe, Aluisio’s latest book, Grim Leaper, an uber-gory love story, hits shelves November 14. The two also chat about Aluisio’s history and future with writers Johnny Zito and Tony Trov, from creating webcomics for DC’s Zuda to the trio’s upcoming series, Astounding Oddfellows. All this, plus plenty about influences, technique and Akira.
