X-Band: The Phantom Podcast #199 - Phun with Jason Paulos



Jason Paulos, is one of the most prolific Frew creators and we have not had him on since 2016 in X-Band: The Phantom Podcast #65 when we where introduced to the Phantom by Gaslight series.


We learn all about Jason including his history of comic creation including great stories of receiving a photocopy of art from Glenn Lumsden (Glenns Podcast Interview) as a kid and photocopying his first comics while stuck in an office job.


One of the interesting parts was when Jason showed us an A3 folder full of unpublished Phantom stories. Some of the other topics we talk about during the 95 minute podcast are:


  • His love for black and white comics

  • How to draw not to rely on colour

  • How he grew up on horror and DC comics in suburban Brisbane

  • His relationship with Glenn Ford and Glenn Lumsden

  • How Jason returned a story back to Frew

  • His views on story telling

  • His views on the American v European panels on page argument

  • How comics should be an escapism

  • Jason Paulos' process on drawing, lettering and colouring his comics

  • About The Gray Malkin Gaslight story

  • Jason talks about his Phantom song and how he wants a phan to create him a music video to it.


One other topic is that Jason is after feedback from phans on his Frew #1883 "The Poor People's Plague" story. If you would like to purchase artwork from him you can go to his website and or Facebook and contact him which page your after.


Please note that the video is not the best quality as Jason was having some technical difficulties and maybe not for delicate ears with a few F and S Bombs dropped occasionally.
