Look Ma! We’re On the Internet!


While at the San Diego Comic Con this year, Chris and I had the chance to talk to people who record conversations. That’s right, our first real INTERVIEW!

We were interviewed by a few different people for various projects (feature documentary, web videos, podcasts, ect…) who knows how many of those projects will actually see the light of day. My favorite interview was the one we did with a puppet cat. Hey puppet cat, put that on the internet!

Luckily, the fine folks at the Meltcast podcast were kind enough to let Chris and I crash their recording session in the Marriot lobby and regale them with all our fine knowledge of comic books (and apparently butt jokes).

Thanks so much to Caleb, Aaron, and Chris for letting us chat with them!

Give it a listen here! (Chris and I come in around the 7:20 mark)

The Most Exciting Video Interview

Steven Surman from recently asked me and Chris to complete a written interview.

Instead, we made THE MOST EXCITING VIDEO INTERVIEW EVER MADE* and packed it full of action and adventure!

A super big thanks go out to the real pizza deliver guy, Willy Roberts,who did not know what he was in for when he delivered that pizza, Dave Geis for asking Steven’s questions on camera, and Jon Hill for shooting the whole thing and making it look pretty.

And of course, thanks to Steven Surman for asking us to do an interview, and then still posting the schlock we made even though we didn’t answer a single one of his questions.

Robert, Jason, and the fine folks at Image Comics were nice enough to give us five whole pages to show off our first colored issue! You guys rock!

Of course Chris and I have been super excited for the release of issue one and we’ve been talking to anyone who will listen to us about it! Which means…


The always super-cool Eric from chatted with us about our move to Image and what it’s like to work with together as brothers. Check out that fun interview here!

Josh Fialkov from featured us in his article, “The Indie Side: Reed Gunther” and said some very flattering words about the book and talked with us about what influenced Reed Gunther and horror westerns!

We’ll be chatting with lots more folks in the next few days so keep a watch out on our Facebook page for all the latest news.

We’ll also be appearing at a bunch of comic shops in the next week or two, so if you’re in the Southern California area, be sure to swing by and say hi! Check out the side bar on the left for all our current appearances.

“Shane and Chris Houghton, of Image Comic’s Reed Gunther, strap on their two-toned bowling shoes, talk Reed Gunther origins and enjoy some ‘Spare Time With Dom.’

‘Spare Time With Dom’ pits comic book creators against the extremely talented bowler, Dom, to talk comics, life and whatever else strikes-up in conversation”

We had a blast hanging out with Dom and chatting about all things Reed Gunther and bowling. Sadly, he did beat us at bowling…

Hope everyone is excited for tomorrow!
