Flipside Focus: Buy Indie Comics Day Special

Welcome to another exciting episode of the TRUE Indie Comic Podcast Flipside Focus, as you knew (or did you?) last August 6th was Buy Indie Comics Day. Over a dozen stores participated in the US as well as Australia, where local creators were given the opportunity to display their creations in their local comic store.

Flipside Focus hosts Dodgy and The Random Dude Josh had the awesome opportunity to interview one of the brains of Buy Indie Comics Day Phil Buck.

Flipsiders will learn about the creation of BICD from it’s humbled beginnings and to what it could become. Phil also shared with us his favourite indie pick Salvagers which appeared to get Dodgy all spaced out and curious.

Meet the Visionaries of BICD:

Phil Buck is an avid comic book fan and generally into all things nerdy. Phil came into writing and creating comic books as an offshoot of his musical endeavors, namely Those Shadow People, a comic book and music combo. Phil has also been known to letter a comic or two, but these day you can find him mainly in the studio or penning new scripts for whatever comic book project he can get his hands on.

Manuel A. Carmona is an indie artist himself and President of Truthful Comics. He stumbled upon fellow BICD masterminds by chance happened by connecting with Carmelo and Phil. Currently he is working on a new book called Project: New Wave, a creator owned project I been working on for the past 10 years.
