Kryptographik is Back: Episode 31

I had a nice surprise this morning when I opened up my iTunes - after what seems like a long time away Kryptographik is back with a new episode.

Kryptographik is a trans-continental podcast featuring Brian (in the U.S.) and Damian (in Australia), providing news, reviews, commentary and interviews covering horror, dark fantasy and science-fiction.

In this the 31st episode, the hosts discuss with author Dirk Manning the seven-year journey his creation Nightmare World made from webcomic to Image Comics; working with over two dozen artists on multiple continents; his Newsarama column ‘Write or Wrong’ and the lost art of juggling humor, horror, pathos and Cthulhu Cultists in 52 8-page stories.

I've blogged before about Kryptographik and I can't recommend it too highly - I enjoy the hosts approach to the show: they speak knowledgeably and enthusiastically about their subject, their style is laid-back and light-hearted. The two men have a good rapport with one another and, if I didn't know otherwise, I'd be sure they were sat together in a room.
