We talk with comedy writers Geoffrey Golden and Amanda Meadows, the founders of The Devastator. Formerly a bi-annual humor anthology, The Devastator is now an all-comedy publishing company producing new novels, comics, magazines, and activity books every month. We discuss the genesis of The Devastator, the reasoning behind their move away from anthologies to one-off publications, the challenges facing independent publishers in the Direct market, and much more.
We are super excited for this N4AL podcast, because we had the chance to talk to the co-creators of the new children’s book, Archibald’s Next Big Thing, including Emmy-Award winner TONY HALE! Archibald’s Next Big Thing is a collaborative effort with co-writer Tony Biaggne, with artists Misty Manley and Victor Huckabee. We caught up with the two Tonys and Victor before their signing at Happy Up Toys in Edwardsville, IL.
