PUNX of RAGE RADIO is co-produced/directed by two Chicago creators. I love when artists collaborate on projects. To unite individual tastes, ideas and concepts; somehow avoiding ego, usually creates larger projects that can’t do anything but enrich the world. Joe Robinson Currie is a career long comic book publisher of Strictly Underground Comics. In fact, the name, PUNX of RAGE directly comes from his flagship IP (intellectual property) of the same name. Chris Turner is a talented illustrator that has also contributed to Joe’s projects and other creators. Mr Turner is also busy working on his own IP called Dial Exces.
PUNX of RAGE RADIO has existed since November 2017 on the BlogTalk Radio format. What are they about? Per their BlogTalk page, “PUNX of RAGE | Cinema, Comics Culture – Covering All topics Comic Book and Graphic Novel related including techniques and tips for creating comic books.“
What’s great is the chemistry. They are both laid back but clearly they get amped up if it is a topic they feel strongly about. Since their first show, they have covered a variety of topics; “The Art Of Collaboration”, “Why We Love Comics”, “Marketing & Distribution”, “The Impact Of Image Comics” and more. They have interviewed incredible talented artists such as Filmmaker R.L. Scottand Afrofuturist Author and Speaker, Ytasha Womack. They also have shows in between the interviews called The Chop Shop where they talk about any entertainment news, especially pertaining to comics and the industry.
