This is episode features a couple of interviews done on the first day of this year’s C2E2 convention in Chicago from February 28th – March 1st. First up is my chat with award winning writer Michael Moreci and Impact Theory founder and co-founder of Quest Nutrition, Tom Bilyeu, talking about the release of the sci-fi comic book series Hexagon. Moreci is known for comics titles like Wasted Space, The Plot, Roche Limit, Archangel 8, and Curse. Hexagon is a nostalgic coming of age story reminiscent of the Last Starfighter, coupled with epic Star Wars like galaxy adventures. It’s the second series from publishing studio Impact Theory (after Neon Future) and initially slated for five issues.

Also, we have author Rita Woods joining us on Fresh is the Word, author of the book Remembrance. In her debut title, Remembrance is a historical fiction novel that tackles issues of slavery, legacy, the power of womanhood, and the lingering effects of racism over the span of centuries. Before we started to chat, I learned that Woods is originally from Detroit, so we talked about her memories growing up in the city. We also talked about Remembrance, her motivation behind writing this story, and what being “black” really means. Rita Woods is a family doctor and the director of a wellness center. When she’s not busy working or writing Dr. Woods spends time with her family or at the Homer Glen library where she serves on the Board of Trustees.
