This is episode 8 of Boing Boing's Tell Me Something I Don't Know podcast. It's an interview show featuring artists, writers, filmmakers, and other creative people discussing their work, ideas, and the reality/business side of how they do what they do.
This week TMSIDK host Jim Rugg is in the hot-seat talking about his new project SUPERMAG -- a glossy, full-color magazine-format homage to the graphic design and comics of the 1990s - published by Adhouse Books. It's a one-man anthology inspired by work like Dan Clowes' Eightball, Dave Cooper's Weasel, David Carson's Raygun, and David Mazzucchelli's Rubber Blanket.
Tell Me Something I Don't Know is produced and hosted by three talented cartoonists and illustrators:
Jim Rugg, a Pittsburgh-based comic book artist, graphic designer, zinemaker, and writer best known for Afrodisiac, The Plain Janes, and Street Angel. His latest
project is SUPERMAG.
Jasen Lex is a designer and illustrator from Pittsburgh. He is currently working on a graphic novel called Washington Unbound. All of his art and comics can be found at jasenlex.com.
Ed Piskor is the cartoonist who drew the comic, Wizzywig, and draws the Brain Rot/ Hip Hop Family Tree comic strip at this very site, soon to be collected by Fantagraphics Books and available for pre-order now.
