Love. The Fox (Magnetic Press)
Written by Frederic Brrémaud
Illustrated by Federico Bertolucci

From time to time I find myself staring at my double screens in my basement office, wondering why I’m not lying in the grass on an island paradise and watching the fauna go about their daily business.  Then I opened the pages of Love. The Fox and I was there!  This book is reminiscent of all the beautiful, animal stories that I read as a child (The Jungle Book, Cinnabar the One O’clock Fox, and Redwall all come to mind).  From the first pages, I was enchanted.

Kickstarter Q&A with Joe Badon

Since starting Therefore I Geek, we’ve had the good fortune to be able to share quality independant projects that are in need of a little crowdfunding. Recently we had the oppurtunity to discuss one such project, The Man With Ten Thousand Eyes, with its creator  Joe Badon. Make sure to head on over and support Joe and his project.

Therefore I Geek: Why don’t you tell us a little about yourself to get started?

Joe Badon: My name is Joe Badon. I’m 38 years old. I live in Slidell, Louisiana (where I was born and raised). It’s just outside of New Orleans.
I’ve been a freelance illustrator since 2008. I have a wife and two teenager girls (and a dog).

TIG: How did you get into comics?

JB: I started reading comics at a pretty young age. My dad had Zapp Comix and underground hippie comics and my older brother had Marvel and DC Comics. I always leaned toward the weirder stuff. Continue reading
