Speech Bubble Episode 64 – Gibson Quarter

Another member of the RAID Studio graces the Never Sleeps Network Studio in promotion of the group’s RAID.One anthology featuring original work from celebrated artists Francis Manapul, Ramon Perez and this man, Gibson Quarter. Gibson’s name may not be as familiar yet in North America because a lot of his work is published in Europe. On this episode, Gibson describes how his love for the work of famed Scottish comic artist Frank Quitely lead to him breaking into the European comic market working for Quitely’s first publisher and then later signing comics beside him at the Glasgow Comicon. Though Gibson loves that he’s known in Europe, he reveals that having published work only available across the pond has hurt his career stateside a little bit. Still he perseveres, supplying covers and interiors for some issues of Canadian hero, Auroraman, Frogman #3: The Death of Frogman and working as the co-creator of The Organ Grinder, a character that first appeared in the independent anthology series Undertow published by 7th Wave Comics based in Seattle. This episode sponsored by Hairy Tarantula.
