Podcast #13 – Thundercats & Shadowlaw Writer Brandon Easton

by Howie Decker @HowardTheDeck on December 3, 2011

in Podcast, The 80s

Brandon Easton knows a thing or two about patience. He began work on his graphic novel Shadowlaw in 1996. After 15 years of leaving it alone, coming back to it, artist turnover and other obstacles, at long last Shadowlaw was slated for a November 16, 2011 release. That release date has now been moved to November 30, but what’s two weeks when you’ve waited 15+ years? UPDATE: Shadowlaw’s release date has been pushed back to December 21, 2011.

We were fortunate to have Brandon join us on the UnderScoopFIRE Podcast to discuss his work in the comic book industry, working as a writer on WB’s new Thundercats animated series, the “Occupy” movements, and much more! Brandon was refreshingly candid with regard to the politics of the comic book industry and the inner workings of a major animation studio.

To help promote Shadowlaw, we are giving away five (5) signed copies of the new graphic novel! UPDATE: The Facebook Giveaway has been closed until we get closer to the new release date of 12/21. We will re-post the link then! If you don’t have a Facebook account, click here to enter via Twitter.

Joining us on this episode is “friend of the podcast” Justin Bell, the admin of GeneralsJoes.com and co-host of the What’s on Joe Mind? podcast. Justin came back to talk Thundercats and do a Fantasy Task Force Draft victory lap. Brandon revealed who his ultimate Fantasy Task Force would be if he had participated in the draft (see below for Team Easton)!

Shadowlaw is scheduled for release on December 21, 2011. Your local comic book shop may have ordered it but if they haven’t, ask them to and reference this code: (SEP110748). Tell your local comic book shop to order Shadowlaw!

Shadowlaw will also be available for order through Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.

Thundercats airs on Cartoon Network on Fridays at 8:30PM.

Last but not least, Brandon’s carefully selected UnderScoopFIRE Fantasy Task Force:

Team Easton

Megatron, Storm Shadow, Black Lion of Voltron, Rick Hunter of Robotech, Man-at-Arms

I think it’s safe to say this squad would have garnered a fair share of votes and maybe given Team Bell a run for it’s money!
