ITK Newsletter, no. XCVII: ISLA RA SESSIONS – Featuring Guest Loony, Knol Tate

LOONIES, HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE!

It’s our weekly newsletter coming to you a little late, due to the fact that the previous episode got released a little late also…BUT, hoping to get back on track to keep all you Loonies in on the loop with what is going down in Moon Town!

And this upcoming episode, I’m as giddy as Crawley with a tea bag..! We’ve got another ISLA RA sessions heading your way, and we also will be following the phases of the moon for this one – 

PHASE OF THE MOON: WANING GIBBOUS

ISLA RA SESSIONS – KNOL ‘LOONY TUNE’ TATE

Knol has been on the show before, but last time it was all about his music (which you can listen to in Episode 92 – SPOTLIGHT: Deleter, The Music of ITK…  )…this time around, I’ll be chatting with Knol to tease out the comics which have made him the man he is today! Let me tell you, you’ll be VERY pleased with his selection, and surprised I’m sure with at least one of them…

What I love about this is that it’s a great opportunity to be exposed to comics I normally wouldn’t be exposed to, and it’s a fun journey to go through, and then to talk with those who cherish these desert island issues!

So as per usual, I’ll be asking Knol about how he got into comics; how he got into Moon Knight; his passion for art and poetry; as well as to talk about a few of his honourable mentions which didn’t make it onto the top 4…

Below you’ll see our standard format too – I’ll leave it to you to decide how you want to tackle it (it’s like a “Choose Your Own Adventure!”)

Knol’s Top 4 Isla Ra (Desert Island) Comics: ???

As always, we aren’t giving anything away! Below you’ll find encrypted links to Knol’s books. These will be in the show nots as well, but if you want to prepare for the show and discover what books Knol has chosen – and read them ahead of our discussion – then look no further than below – 

KNOL’S TOP 4 ISLA RA BOOKS:

  1. Knol’s Top Pick
  2. Knol’s 2nd Pick
  3. Knol’s 3rd Pick
  4. Knol’s 4th Pick

(note: I’m not entirely sure of the order for Knol’s books as we’ve not discussed it yet, so the order of these books is subject to change!)

ITK MERCHANDISE – BUY YOURS TODAY!

OK, so I’ve gone ahead and partnered up with TeePublic to bring you some official ITK merchandise. So excited that one Loony at least has already made good on these limited runs of clothes and mugs…be sure to get yours if you haven’t already…I’m eyeing that Capes and Lunatics one….

You can grab stuff from our store here…

GUEST CO-HOSTING ON THE COLLECTIVE

I’ve also been making the rounds as well with podcasts…yep, I’m back in force baby, and have racked up some future guests for our won show, but I’ve also been busy getting out there spreading the Moon Knight word!

You can catch me on the latest (Episode 122) Signal of Doom Podcast episode alongside Dave Finn! I had a great time, and  it’s actually the first time I’ve been in the same room with a co-host, so it made the dynamic totally different! I must thank Dave and Michelle for all their hospitality and for meeting Wade the Cat and Cooper the Dog… Dave and Michelle are so generous and hospitable…made recording so fun and easy!

Apart from our ISLA RA coming up, this weekend I’ll also be on the Capes and Lunatics Podcast alongside Phil, Charlie and Lilith…it’s San Diego Comic Con Weekend so we’ll have much to talk about and there’ll be discussion on current comics released as well as TV and movie news. Much of it I imagine will be intrinsically tied to the SDCC this weekend…should be heaps of fun, and I already had a great time with Phil on the ITK show where we did a crossover with his Ultimate Spider-Cast ( Episode 103 – Spider-man + Moon Knight Crossover Part 2 ) so it should be a great time again in their backyard!

I’ll also be recording tonight another episode for my other podcast which I do alongside Connor McKenna from Sons of the Dragon: An Immotral Iron Fist Podcast, which some of you will know – Last Sons of Krypton – A Superman Podcast. We’ll review a comic form the 1980’s written by Len Wein and with the Man of Steel in space…I really enjoyed the issue, so will be fun to dissect!

All this keeps me off the streets…so busy, busy…but it’s heaps of fun! (who needs sleep! )

Upcoming collaborations included are with 20th Century Geek, Epic Marvel Podcast, and We Are Venomaniacs!…Stay tuned!

That pretty much wraps it up for this week and this here newsletter – hope you’ve been enjoying the podcast recently…it’s been a bit bumpy but hopefully we’ll be right on track and have some consistency int he weeks to come!

We absolutely LOVE to hear from you, and will always address and give you shout outs on the show, so please don’t hesitate to drop us a line!

We’ve got various social media outlets and we use these to read Loony comments on the show – if you DON’T want your comments broadcast, please just add, “(DNB)” at the end of your comment, and we’ll be sure not to broadcast it. We’ll pick a few comments from here and discuss on the show!

OK, gotta warm the vocals for that Last Sons Podcast…then to more comic book reading!!
