Halloween Special- Dave Ebersole on his Crime Noir Horror Comic Dash

Philadelphia based director and playwright Dave Ebersole is the creator and writer of Dash, a noir detective story set in 1940 Los Angeles.

Dash is a comic cocktail that’s one part Maltese Falcon, one part The Mummy, with twist: Dash Malone is an openly gay private detective.

After a three-year hiatus, Dash returns with issue #5. 

How did Dave get the book back on schedule, and who has been added to the art team to carry on the series?

What are Dave’s plans for the series beyond issue six, the finale of The Mysterious Zita Makara arc?

We talk a lot about classic films this episode, including Dave’s favorite Rebel Without a Cause, starring the legendary James Dean.

Why does Dave prefer to watch it alone?

Also in this Special Halloween Episode, we talk about our favorite Universal and Hammer Horror Mummy films.

In which format do we prefer to watch another horror classic, Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, on DVD or Blu-Ray? Why?

We also talk about crime noir films of the 40s and 50s. How do we define crime noir? Which are our favorite films? Will we ever figure out what the heck is going on in The Big Sleep

We wrap up our conversation with the fun questions I ask all my guests!


This is episode is sponsored by The Comic Book Shop in Wilmington Delaware, who is having a Halloween Comic Fest and Spookabration 10/27 & 10/28!
