The Ink Panthers Show! Special Episode
Angie Bongiolatti Spotlight
It’s a Special Episode of The Ink Panthers Show! as Mike and Alex creep nervously back into Panther’s Lair to discuss Mike’s new book, Angie Bongiolatti. They have a fun insightful conversation about all the heavy political aspects of the book, as well as all the sex scenes. The Panthers talk about the creative process, getting at what’s really rewarding about writing long-form comics (hint: it’s not the part when you’re done with them), as well as a few announcements, including information on Mike’s new(ish) podcast.
Don’t worry, after all the comics chat, there’s a few minutes leftover in the show to get down to some Classic Panthers Slushery. Easter egg hunt stampedes, strange encounters on the subway, a city of Hobo’s toilets. Man, we missed these guys!!

Wally Wood inking Jack Kirby. Beautiful
Anonymous asked: Because I read A LOT of types of books, and people are often surprised when I tell them you are one of my all-time favorite writers. You seem to reference a lot of books in your publications. Have you ever written short stories, longer prose, and/or articles? Do you have plans to write any (more) in the future, and perhaps even self-publish a compilation as an ebook? -- You're #1 Fan, Annie (haha, just kidding)
I’ve written a handful of essays over the years but nothing worth digging up and never fiction. It’s funny that you bring it up, though, because I’ve been thinking about trying my hand at a proper novel or at least short story once I finish Our Expanding Universe. We’ll see.
I love comics, of course, but there are some things you can do with prose that you can’t do with comics (and vice versa) (at least not as easily).
Thanks for your kind words.

If we ever leave NYC the first thing I’m buying is a bike. The second thing I’m buying: a goat.

boblipski asked: Stephen is one of my favorite characters from BOP. I always wondered if he really did make a pass at Dorothy when they were roommates, or if she was making that up.
A lot of people have asked me about that over the years. I think the answer is in the book but who can really say for sure?
Who is Julius Downs Underbranch?
He’s the disgraced president of the United States, indicted on three counts of regicide before he fled to Canada with a false passport. Plus, he’s just one of the many characters and concepts in Triptych, the exciting new nerdy card game we’re attempting to Kickstart!
Loose pug skin. You could fit a softball under there.
jaredlovestodraw asked: Hi Alex! Are you gonna be at Moccafest this weekend? I'm tabling with my friend Jason Poland. I wanted to say hi at spx but I missed you. I drew a title card a long while ago for ink panthers. Hope you're well and hope to meet you sometime.
Since I don’t have a new book out I won’t be tabling but I’ll be walking around the latter half of Saturday. If you see me come up and say hello!
