What to Listen to at Work

Sunday, January 30th, 2011

I’m a big fan of the podcast, The Ink Panthers Show. It’s a couple of comics creators, Alex Robinson, Mike Dawson, and lots of guests talking about almost everything but comics. They’re hilarious. I listen to them all the time when I’m working, and highly recommend everyone else do too.

In the interest of full disclosure, I’ve known Mike for quite awhile now. I met him when we both used to work at Scholastic Books and we worked together for a couple of years before he became a huge comics celebrity, so he will still occasionally talk to me.

In addition to the podcast, Mike’s got a great webcomic that he just finished up called Troop 142 which I can’t recommend highly enough. You can read it online now, or if you want to wait a bit, it’ll be coming out in book form in the fall. Whoo hoo! Be warned though that it’s kind of adult themed material. It’s about a troop of boy scouts, a comic about kids but not for kids, which I think means that kids will totally want to read it.
