About the artist:
John Kovalic’s cartoons have appeared everywhere from his hometown WISCONSIN STATE JOURNAL (Madison, WI) to the NEW YORK TIMES and DRAGON MAGAZINE. His creations include the sell-out comic book sensation DORK TOWER and “DR. BLINK: SUPERHERO SHRINK,” as well as SNAPDRAGONS, NEWBIES, WILD LIFE, BEACHED, and panel cartoons including MURPHY’S RULES, THE UNSPEAKABLE OAF and others.
About the work:
DORK TOWER is for anybody who’s ever been burned being an early adapter; who’s made more Twitter tweets than actual Twitter followers; who’s ever gone to a Star Trek convention; who’s ever played Dungeons and Dragons; who suspects Anime is more than just a passing ad; and who’s been fragged by a Gravity Hammer in Halo III – or anyone who KNOWS one of these people.

Hey John, welcome back to the show! It’s been a while; would you remind our listeners of who you are and your claim(s) to fame?

How goes the battle against online distractions?
Dork Tower

Munchkin & The Shakespeare Kickstarter
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/847271320/munchkin-shakespeare
Tell us about Munchin & The Shakespeare Kickstarter project.
How do you draw on those little bitty cards?
We know you draw the cards…but do you ever write the cards? You strike me as a great wielder of puns.
Do you support a lot of kickstarter projects? Wanna give us a few?
When they kickstarter got funded so far beyond your goal did you say “Yea!” or “Uh, oh,” or a bit of both?
Did you guys start running out of stretch goal ideas?
We’re seeing more and more Kickstarters from established companies. With so many versions of Munchkin already out there, why did SJ Games turn to Kickstarter for Shakespeare Munchkin?
Charity Work
Anything new happening with the Insane Charity Bike Ride for 2017?
Is it appropriate to wear bicycle shorts over 40 to any other event besides cycling? Like the grocery store? Asking for a friend
