The Bleed 2.23 – Reading Doomboy With David Dissanayake

By Joseph Kyle Schmidt and Samuel Morse

The Bleed

The Bleed is a weekly podcast by Bleeding Cool contributors Joe Schmidt and Sam Morse. The podcast consists of the latest news in comics, creator interviews, and a weekly book club discussion.

This week is special because we welcome back old friend and co-host David Dissanayake! David used to write for both Bleeding Cool and but is now helping with Marketing and PR for new publication house Magnetic Press!

And to celebrate both Magnetic's first year in comics and their award nominations, we are reading the Eisner-nominated original graphic novel by Tony Sandoval, Doomboy! The story of a young metal guitarist trying to cope with the death of a close friend, the story is an intimate portrayal of insecurity, compassion, and music in the face of loss and dispair. It's friggin' beautiful, too.
