Sneaky Dragon Episode 130

by David Dedrick on May 31, 2014


With Steve Rolston! This week Ian and Dave are at Vancouver’s premier artsy comic books boutique show VanCAF where they interviewed the fantastic cartoonist Steve Rolston, Eisner-winning artist on Ghost Projekt, Pounded, Emiko Superstar and Queen and Country. When you have two Eisner-winning cartoonists on an episode of course the first thing you talk about is Madballs! They also talk to Steve about his career plus the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles get a mention; Dave makes his usual old-timey references; they talk about being ret-conned; lose the audience; mention ballwashers; reveal mysterious award ceremony buffets; Ian steals a joke; bemoan the lack of comics set in Vancouver; and finally, steel balls.

Thanks to Steve Rolston for coming on the show! He was a lot of fun and deserves a big hug for putting up with Dave. (Someone please give him that hug, okay?)

Thanks for listening.

Hola, Sneakers! Buenas dias or buenos noches. Ian is away in Barcelona this week so the boys did a marathon recording session and things got a little giddy. After a shaky start, things get real with some talk of the waking/dreaming state; that weird mind trick when you mix up dream reality with potentially actual […]

Well, everyone, it seems like it’s time to take a look at the red-headed stepchild of the Beatles’ catalogue and give a quick once over before we move on to more important albums, but Dave says not so fast. He thinks it’s time we re-evaluated this much-maligned record and remove what he calls “The Curse of […]

Good question! This week on the show, Ian and Dave talk about land-sickness; ask where are have all the waterbeds gone; Dave […]
