Masters of the Universe – Bunka
He-Man by Ryan Ottley
She-Ra by Terry Rachel Dodson
He has a new book coming out this September about the Kennedy assassination:
Full disclosure–I had the honor of working on the book with him.
Ernie Colón began his professional career at Harvey Comics as a letterer. He later worked, uncredited, as an artist on titles including Richie Rich and Casper the Friendly Ghost. At Harvey, he met Sid Jacobson, who became his editor and frequent creative partner.
His first confirmed, credited work was penciling and inking the two-page story "Kaleidoscope of Fear" in Wham-O Giant Comics #1 (cover-dated April 1967, published by the toy company Wham-O). He went on to draw three issues of Gold Key Comics' Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom (#24-26, July 1968 – Jan. 1969), and to do much work for Warren Publishing's black-and-white horror-comics magazines Creepy, Eerie, and Vampirella.
Colón was an editor for DC Comics from 1982 to 1985. He oversaw titles such as Arion, Lord of Atlantis, The Flash, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman.
Colón's many artistic credits include Grim Ghost for Atlas/Seaboard; the historical fantasy Arak, Son of Thunder (with writer Roy Thomas); Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld (with writers Dan Mishkin and Gary Cohn) for DC Comics; Airboy for Eclipse Comics; Magnus: Robot Fighter for Valiant Comics; and Damage Control and Doom 2099 for Marvel Comics. Also for Marvel, Colón wrote, drew, colored and lettered the 1988 science-fiction graphic novel Ax.
In the late 1980s, Colón penciled the short-lived Bullwinkle and Rocky series for Marvel's children's imprint Star Comics. Colón returned to Harvey in the early 1990s, and worked on such projects as Monster in My Pocket and Ultraman.

This time I talk with Gregg Schigiel, host of the Stuff Said podcast and artist on the Spongebob Comics series. Together we discuss lettering (or sound design) in comics, prepping for conventions, and a layered and elaborate metaphor for feeling like an outsider in your field.
There was a little bit of Skype buffering in this episode, but I think the discussion is fun despite it.

This time I talk with cartoonist Zack Giallongo about birding, the importance of empathy in being a cartoonist, and keeping things in perspective when encountering the stresses that come with creative pursuits.
Rachel and Jerzy celebrate the conclusion of their work on The Warren Report: A Graphic Investigation of the Kennedy Assassination with doughnuts, then compare and contrast coloring work between projects. We close by talking about how our friends with “normal” jobs react to our line of work.
New episodes drop first on the Lean Into Art Patreon page. They’ll appear in this feed a few weeks after that.
