Here for your listening pleasure is my interview with Mark Andrew Smith, creator of great comics like Gladstone's School For World Conquerors, New Brighton Archeological Society and The Amazing Joy Buzzards. Mark and I spend most of the time talking about Gladstone's, a great all ages title that I highly recommend. Mark was kind enough to let me pick his brain about the creative process that went into it and he gave us a nice glimpse into the future of the series. I hope you all enjoy the interview and big thanks again to Mark for taking the time to talk with me.

I am excited to announce a new edition to our Comic Book Revolution Podcast. This new series of podcasts will center around the titles being published by Image Comics. Therefore, the name of this new series will be the Image Revolution. The hosts of this podcast will be Andrenn and Jordan. Take it away boys.
Andrenn: Welcome to a brand new podcast from the Comic Book Revolution. Jordan and I have joined forces to talk about something they both love: Image Comics! Image Revolution is a new Sub-Series in the Comic Book Revolution Podcast devoted to all things Image. We'll talk about various comics, creators and points in Image's 20 year history as the show continues. We had a lot of fun doing the first episode and we're excited to bring you more in the near future. Look forward to it!
Jordan XTREME: This is the inaugural episode of the Image Revolution. The Image only podcast was suggested by Andrenn a couple weeks ago and I immediately wanted in on this project. My love for classic image combined with my deeling interest in current Image were the reasons I wanted in. That and Andrenn is a fun guy to chat up a storm with. I think Image was and still is an important part of the comicbook industry but is tragically overlooked by the communtiy as a whole. I would love it if the stuff we discuss in the podcast every month led to you buying more Image comics because they are worth it. If anything else I hope this podcast will inform and entertain you. Now sit back and enjoy the sweet sounds of The Image Revolution brought to you by the Comic Book Revolution.
