Russian mythology and Italian sausage: Talking ‘Atomika’ over Johnnie’s Beef with comics creator Sal Abbinanti (Episode 688)

ATOMIKA: GOD IS RED, the independently-created graphic novel by Sal Abbinanti, is being compiled in a new Omnibus edition. Jump on the Kickstarter of Atomika while you can: It closes soon, and there are all kinds of cool extras and goodies you can get from stretch goals already hit!

Sal’s a favorite of mine, and it was a pleasure to meet him at Johnnie’s Beef in Elmwood Park. Over Italian sausages, we talked about Atomika’s storyline and publication history, the independent and mainstream sides of the comic book industry, Jack Kirby’s far-reaching legacy, and Sal’s potentially concerning new project title.

Support Sal. Support Atomika. Eat more Italian sausage.
