The final episode of the Electrifying Adventures was released July 1st on CKMS and YouTube. There are even more great Canadian Bands that we would have loved to feature in the episodes and that we will continue to feature on the radio. Here it is!
The artwork for episode 5 was created by Cameron Matthews.
Cam is a fellow DJ at CKMS. He is host of the Denim Entertainment show and a new Cameron Matthews show that airs on Wednesdays. When he said that he also did comic artwork we thought it was only right and natural to bring in one of our own to contribute to the project! Note: The last page was created with images from season one and there are a few scenes incorporated by other artists that got involved at the last minute.
The Electrifying Sessions just released Episode 4: “The Paperboy” last night! Catch the ending of the epic chase down of the ManoKnight. Also, what does a paperboy have to do with anything? Find out here!
The Artwork for Episode 4 that was released on June 16th 2015 was created by Trevor Waurechen. Listen above and check his work out here:
Trevor sat right across from our booth at the Waterloo DIY day. We quite enjoyed his comic strip that he created. I'm not sure if he noticed ours.....a year or two later we asked if he would contribute to our audio comic. Note that the first page here was put together by Fred Start as a bridge between Episode 3 and Episode 4. The rest was designed by Trevor
Colleen is an art student who ran or used to run a gathering for like minded artists in the Guelph area. We tracked down who this great artist was on the interweb and begged her to going the Electrifying Adventures.
At the time of creation Sophia was a student at a local Secondary School in the area. We thought she did excellent work and tried to get her on board to create an episode. After constant nagging we finally got her to create an episode and it turned out great!
DJ Rockrilla has been on the Mano A Mano show a few times, he is most known for his battles vs DJ Gogaliesha. Rockrilla was such a fan of the Electrifying Adventures that he said “the only thing that could make the comic better would be if they had to battle robots” DJ Steel and DJ Jeff E Jeff took this idea and wrote it into the new season! Check out the trailer above!
The new season, complete with robots, is being released starting in May 5th and Ending on Canada Day!
Episode 6 Part A brought in Amanda Hordyk who did some work for another CKMS program. This Episode was broken up into two parts after the series was selected to be a feature installment at the inaugural Night\shift festival
This was the first episode done in watercolour paint.
Since the conclusion of season one, Episode 6B was to be featured at the inaugural Night\Shift Festival we wanted to feature all the artists that took part in the series. Thus various scenes were manipulated or created to finish off this initial series.
This past Tuesday on “The Electrifying Session with DJ Jeff E JEff” we re-released Episode 5: Detective J. Steel while gearing up for the season 2 release. We also released the Season 2 promo that can be seen below. This is the first issue where DJ Steel is introduced into the story to help DJ AdRock figure out what is going on with his Mano A Mano co-host! This also brought Big Poppa Higgs in as the voice of DJ Steel.
While looking for more artists Fred Start took on the creation of Episode 5. He felt that his work in episode one was not representative of what he was capable of, especially since it was initially communicated to just be some promotional material.
