Ep. 43 – Chris Eliopoulos


This week the guys talk to Chris Eliopoulos – a well known letterer & creator of the comic Misery Loves Sherman. He’s come on the show to talk comics, art, following your passions, and some tech geekery

He designed the in-house fonts for Marvel Comics & he and his team at Virtual Calligraphy do a massive amount of lettering for Marvel. He has also provided lettering work to Valiant Comics, DC Comics, and more. For Dark Horse Comics, he wrote and drew some stories for Star Wars. Yeah. Star-freaking-Wars.

He has worked on literally thousands of comics. But along with that, he is also the author/artist of many comics, including the popular series Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers and Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius

Recently he’s been working with Brad Meltzer on a series of children’s books called Ordinary People Change The World (http://ordinarypeoplechangetheworld.com/)

Not only is he insanely talented, but he’s a super-cool and down to earth guy and we were thrilled to get some of his time to bring him on the show.

Follow Chris’s work at any one of the fine links below:
