The Podcast Of Steel

The Justice League as 8 year olds, dealing with everyday life? Yes please! I am not sure when I read my first ever JL8 strip but I know that I was hooked from the moment I saw the charming characters. I got to speak with award-winning cartoonist Yale Stewart about his life, comics, Superman, integrity and his JL8 webcomic that has fans all over the world. It was fascinating to hear how these characters came to be and the origin story of this artist/writer. 00:00 Intro 02:30 Yale’s origin story 10:44 The birth of JL8 14:38 Releasing the comics online 21:00 “You have to wear a lot of hats” 25:17 Superman’s compassion 30:29 The Amazing Adventures Of Superman 38:00 Working for yourself vs working for someone else 45:23 Neil Gaiman 50:31 The Future of JL8 1:07:00 Favourite issues 1:10:50 The fans 1:19:03 How the world can get more JL8 1:25:06 “What does Superman mean to you?” 1:32:32 Outro The JL8 Comic: https://jl8comic.tumblr.com/ If you want more JL8 (Yale has a lot more stories to share!) then this is where you can support Yale: patreon.com/yalestewart Yale's store: https://yalestewart.bigcartel.com/ Yale's Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/yalestewartart Yale's Twitter: https://twitter.com/YaleStewart Yale's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/yalestewart/ JL8 on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jl8comiclol/ Thanks for listening to The Podcast Of Steel.
