135 Chelsea Cain Doubles Down with Man-Eaters

September 18, 2018
Special early release of this week's podcast!
 
New York Times Best Selling Author Chelsea Cain returns to comics with her latest work Man-Eaters (Image Comics). 
 
We open with a discussion about the personalty of cats and the perks of having a feline pet.
 
Revisiting her childhood, Chelsea explains how she earned the moniker "the dead pet whisperer". 
 
Next, Chelsea talks about The Green River Killer and how her fascination with the case led her to write the novel Heartsick featuring serial killer Gretchen Lowell.
 
How did Chelsea get into reading comics and ultimately write the Eisner nominated mini-series Mockingbird  for Marvel Comics?
 
We discuss Chelsea's return to comics after her hiatus with the entire Mockingbird creative team for Man-Eaters: artist Kate Niemczyk, colorist Rachelle Rosenberg and letterer Joe Caramagna.
 
What makes Man-Eaters different from other horror comics and how does Kate’s art add a hint of humor and a flourish of fun to the series?
 
We also talk about Chelsea and writer/husband Marc Mohanto plans for the next arc of The Vision, which since our initial interview was abruptly cancelled by Marvel Comics. 
 
In our fun questions segment, Chelsea talks about her favorite birthday as a child and her brush with one of the biggest celebrities in show biz!
 
What is the cause that Chelsea supports that in some way ties into the subject of Man-Eaters?
 
But wait, there is more!
 
After answering my fun questions, I followed up with Chelsea shortly after the announcement of The Vision's cancellation to get her thoughts on the subject. (46:53:-58:30)
