Midnight Looms 065 – COMIC BOOK WRITER: DANNY GORNY – October 12th 2021
WE LOVE HALLOWEEN. It’s the only holiday that we dedicate a full month to and that month starts tonight! We’re back inside our PLAYDEAD CULT studio space after a week off, still digesting food from Thanksgiving dinner, and our host, GOBS, is joined by a buddy who happens to write comic books. DANNY GORNY is in the place. Gobs chats with him about his SCI-FI, FANTASY, and HORROR projects while we hear a selection of his favourite costume party jams. It’s the perfect way to kick off the Halloween season.
Danny throws down one wildly eccentric set of songs. DUSBTEP, HARDCORE, HIP HOP, INDUSTRIAL, CLASSIC ROCK. Seemingly tunes that don’t belong together, but then consider Danny’s work. He’s released comics about rats that kill people (HOUSE OF DOOM), and a secret agent who hunts monsters in colonial times (MYTH BUTCHER). He’s working on a sci-fi comic that he describes as “farm punk” (CYGNUS IMPERIUM), and he’s 4 issues deep into a 12 part series about a young woman who psychically projects herself as a superhero, called Radiant Dawn, while she’s sleeping (SLEEPWALKERS). Will our producer, Sophy, join in on a READ THROUGH of a MONSTER ATTACK scene from one of Danny’s comics? Tune in and find out!!
