Geeking with Destination Venus - Episode #1: Chatting with Witchblood's Matthew Erman


So. The Geeks at the Gates is dead - long live Geeking with Destination Venus! We start with the first part of Regie's conversation with the immensely talented and endearingly enthusiastic Matthew Erman. Click on his picture below to go to the download page, or simply search for Geeking with Destination Venus wherever you get your podcasts.

Our discussion started with Witchblood - the current collaboration between Erman and his wife:

Witchblood is a modern, Wild West road trip about a witch named Yonna cruising the Southwest as a band of bloodthirsty biker vampires, The Hounds of Love, hunt her scattered coven for the source of all magic: witch blood.


From the critically acclaimed creators of The Modern Witch Tarot Deck and Long Lost comes WITCHBLOOD, a blend of action, lore, and Americana-perfect for fans of Buffy and American Gods -except frankly it's better than both of those things.






Mention was made of muted colours in comics back in the eighties. This is the sort of thing Regie was talking about:
