Cactoid Jim

Sometimes you need to take a break from all the stuff you are supposed to be working on and just make a piece of art for yourself. This is one of those. I've been listening to a lot of "Thrilling Adventure Hour" this week. A podcast that has apparently been around for years but for some reason no one told me about it.

It's amazing, funny, smart, star-studded, brilliant, gross, and ...from Earth. Had I known about it earlier I would have started campaign for it to be nominated for a HUGO award. Because it deserves one. Maybe next year.

The shows bears a strong likeness to the old timey Girl Genius Radio Theatre podcasts we used to do way back when (ten years ago?) and fill me with a mighty urge to do them again. Adding to them the many other things I've concocted over the years, Doc Einstein: The Quantum Man, the Tesla Rangers, the Adventure Society. Apex :Ape Super Scientist, Chronopol, Silver Spector... and on and on.

My brain holds too much stuff for me to write and draw and get out into the world. Especially on my own. I need cadres- cohorts. Without them I fear I am doomed to watch from the sidelines and think about what might have been.

As a fellow TAH fan, I whole-heatedly approve of this art. Love your work on Girl Genius too! Oh and yes Ackerman and Blacker deserve a Hugo nomination.

If you enjoyed listening to Thrilling Adventure Hour, you should check out Decoder Ring Theater. More of the awesome radio adventure drama.
