Steve Bryant on Radio Wayne

Wayne Cordova, of the very entertaining Radio Wayne Podcast, had me on as a guest this week. Wayne and I discussed Athena's past, present and future, as well as talking about movies, comics and my other upcoming Ape Entertainment book, Ursula Wilde. The Athena Voltaire trade paperback collection, Flight of the Falcon is Wayne's Indy Pick of the Month and he tells you how you can get it for a whopping 45% off!

For those of you unfamiliar with Wayne's show, it's an entertaining look at movies, tv, comics and general geekery, all told in a warm, conversational manner. Wayne has years of radio experience and it shows in his podcast.

Femme Noir #2 in PREVIEWS Now

The May Edition of Diamond Comics Distribution's PREVIEWS catalog is in stores now, and contains the solicitation for the second issue of the Femme Noir: Dark City Diaries miniseries. You can find it on page 214, along with some other great Ape Entertainment titles.

As with the first issue, #2 will feature two variant covers: the "A"cover by Joe Staton and Alfredo Lopez, Jr., and a guest cover by Matt Haley (Ghost, Birds of Prey, G.I. Spy). Each version has its own order code (see below) so you can choose in advance which version you want to get.

Here's a brief synopsis of issue #2, "Dead Man's Hand:" A husband's bad luck at cards results in a violent, twisted web of lies, blackmail, murder, and an explosive climax at sea with Port Nocturne's beautiful and deadly protector.

And here's what "Mistah Z" at Project Fanboy had to say about this issue:

This story continues the compelling crime/noir feel that was initiated with the first issue. While archetypical to the genre, I found the story to still manage to be fresh and compelling, giving some pulpy nods to its inspirations. The sub-plotting introduces and develops some "lesser" (for now, at least) characters, drives the main plot, and continues the mystery of "who is Femme Noir?" by trotting out all the possible suspects just long enough to keep you wondering. Joe Staton's art continues to be top notch and, once again, really ties the whole crime/noir vibe together. I'm looking forward to seeing how this mini-series develops.
The Diamond Item Code is MAY083591. (Staton & Lopez)
The Diamond Item Code is MAY083592. (Haley)

Remember, if you can pre-order it from your local comics shop, please do. Every pre-order helps a lot, and shows the store owner that there is interest in the book, which may lead him to order a few more copies for the shelves. Not sure where your closest comic shop is?
