Next Week’s Savage Fincast Podcast to Feature Writer Joe Keatinge!

The Savage Fincast Podcast is pleased to announce that our next episode will feature rising-star comic book writer, Joe Keatinge!

Keatinge’s first professional break in comics-related work was doing color flats on Savage Dragon, one of his all-time favorite comic books.  Joe was eventually hired by Erik Larsen as administrative support for Image Comics starting as an Inventory Controller and working his way up to Public Relations and Marketing Director. During Keatinge’s career at Image he contributed to anthology titles such as the Next Issue Project: Fantastic Comics #24 with Mike Allred (Madman, X-Statics, iZombie) and created the Eisner and Harvey award-winning anthology, PopGun, with co-editor Mark Andrew Smith (Amazing Joy Buzzards, Gladstone’s School for World Conquerors). Keatinge also went on to work with Frank Cho (Liberty Meadows, Shanna the She-Devil Avengers, Hulk), as editor of his “50 Girls 50” series. In 2010 Keatinge left his marketing position to focus on becoming a full-time comic book creator.

Two years later, Joe is back at Image Comics– but this time as a professional comic book writer. Joe was awarded writing duties for Rob Liefield’s “Glory” comic as part of the new Extreme Comics relaunch. Joe’s first issue of Glory sold out at the distribution level, before it even arrived on store shelves. Keatinge’s second Image comic series, “Hell Yeah!”, is his own creation and will be released this week. Based on the media buzz the book has been generating, it is almost guaranteed to sell out as well. Joe is also in the process of working with Frank Cho on another creator-owned book at Image titled “Brutal”.

This will be another episode of the Savage Fincast you dare not to be miss! Join us as the Fincast Gang gets the scoop from Joe on what it’s like to work with Erik and the rest of the crew at Image Comics, what his favorite Savage Dragon comics are, and what is in store with his “Glory” and “Hell Yeah!” comics. As always, we will be going through the nitty-gritty details of the most trivial things from our favorite funny-mag as only the most obsessed Savage Dragon fan could!

You can forward any questions/comments for Joe or the Fincast Gang to dragonfanblog(at)gmail(dot)com. The episode is scheduled to live late next week. The Savage Fincast Podcast is located at http://fincast.guttertrash.net/
