I caught up with Sean Neprud of the Only the Valiant podcast at San Diego Comic-Con. Naturally, the Athena Voltaire Compendium came up a time or two. Much fun, and I didn’t ramble (too much)!
Jason Wilkins at Broken Frontier talked to me about webcomics, Kickstarter, Athena Voltaire’s history, influences and future. A good time! There’s some preview art there, too.
I stopped by the Earth Station One podcast to talk about the Athena Voltaire Compendium, comics and a trip to the Geek Seat! Have a listen!

Here’s the official text:
In the knuckle-dusting style of classic pulp adventure comes Athena Voltaire, a beautiful globetrotting aviatrix who takes on Nazis, secret societies, zombies, and unspeakable occult creatures! From sunken galleons to haunted mountain-top lairs to hidden jungle temples, our heroine faces peril at every turn as she races to save the world. This whopping tome rescripts and remasters Athena’s adventures from the long-running, Eisner-nominated comic by Steve Bryant, including over 50 pages of brand new material, as well as a pin-up gallery, concept art, and process sketches.
224-page hardcover • $20 • Order code: AUG140083
Yep, it’s a 224-page hardcover for 20 bucks!
If you’re still on the fence, here’s a 40-page preview!
I had a great chat with my old friends from the Comic Geek Speak podcast about the upcoming Athena Voltaire Compendium. We spent some time catching up, as well. A good time was had by all!
