Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

On this edition of Nerdbot Talks, Dade Elza chats with Dylan Sprouse about his brand-new comic book series “Sun Eater.”

Sure, you might remember Dylan best from his days as Zack Martin on the Disney Channel’s “Suite Life of Zack and Cody,” where he co-stared with his twin brother Cole Sprouse (Jughead Jones on The CW’s “Riverdale“), but he’s venturing into the world of funny pages with “Sun Eater.”

He is also the co-founder of New York’s All-Wise Meadery. Mmm. Mead.

About “Sun Eater”:

Sun Eater is a nine-issue saga that takes place in ninth century Norway, where a drug-addled warrior sacrifices his leg to the Gods.  In return he is fused with a parasitic beast, giving him the power to rescue his son from his sworn enemies—history’s first Norwegian king and his five personal guards. The result is a grim and bloody adventure—a dark metaphor for drug addiction, selfishness, and the children it affects. Heavy Metal and DiGa Studios will be releasing the series later this year.

“I love fantasy-action and I wanted to create something that would appeal to newer fans of the genre while tackling an elevated story,” said Sprouse. “The characters I wrote are from actual tales and bardic songs, and the story is about the adult, dark, grotesque, and somber world of Sun Eater and its desperate, faulty protagonist. While I have been actively writing Sun Eater for years, the culmination of the content rings especially true for me now, at this stage of my life.”

In this episode, you’ll see just how delightfully adorable Dylan is, and how he saves a bee TWICE!
