For this week’s episode of Geekorama, we’re going to give you a sneak peek at some of the exciting things happening in our author careers. We finally open up about our own writing in the superhero genre, and talk at length about why we’re branching out to touch upon other sub-genres.
Pop-Culture Trivia-July 1971 Swamp Thing
A humanoid/plant elemental creature, created by writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson, the Swamp Thing has had several humanoid or monster incarnations in various different storylines. The character first appeared in House of Secrets #92 (July 1971) in a stand-alone horror story set in the early 20th century.The Swamp Thing television series first aired on the USA Network from 1990 to 1993, with Dick Durock reprising the role of Swamp Thing from the movie adaptation. DiC Entertainment's Swamp Thing animated series debuted on Fox Kids in April 1991, with Len Carlson providing the voice of the title character. A live-action series based on the Swamp Thing and produced by James Wan was released in 2019 on the DC Universe streaming service, with Alec Holland portrayed by Andy Bean while Swamp Thing is played by Derek Mears in a "physical costume."
- Trish - The Last Kingdom on Netflix. It’s a blatant soap opera, but it include Vikings, so who really cares?
- Jeremy - Some wonderfully bad horror movies (warning, I spoil pretty much everything.) What happens when you take AirBnB, annoying people, and a crazy dude with a hammer?
Deep Dive - What’s New in Our Superhero Worlds?
- Trish - I’m pivoting my Superhero universe to start focusing on more romantic novels. For TL Heinrich, it will be superhero first with slow burn romances and read quite a lot like Paranormal and Urban Fantasy with romantic elements more front and center. For Trish Heinrich, it’s Romance first, superheroes second with a good dose of steam.
- Jeremy - The second series is with the editor and I'm looking at a busy fall. After my pilot series focusing on action adventure, the prequel is much more of an alternate history / urban fantasy vibe. While that's with the editor I'm working on a much thicker science fiction novel that takes place centuries in the future. My current strategy is to maintain a superhero focus while touching on other genres to expand readership. We'll see how this pans out!
