On demand: iTunes ¦ Sound Cloud ¦ Stitcher ¦ Listed on podcastdirectory.com

Mad science is the punkest s*** there is. Teenage sweethearts Nat & Sumesh spend their nights breaking into abandoned superlabs to steal the parts they need to build a time machine – and they’ve just found the most important part. But mysterious entities keep trying to stop them turning it on. Now all they’ve gotta do is hang on long enough to figure out why. Magdalene Visaggio and Eryk Donovan bring you a high-octane adventure full of robots, muscle cars, and queer-a** skater punks in Quantum Teens are Go, the brand new series from Black Mask Studios!

Magdalene Visaggio is the writer and creator of Kim & Kim and Quantum Teens Are Go for Black Mask Studios. A former wannabe academic theologian, she turned to writing comics after dropping out of graduate school. She actually started writing comics when she was eight, but honestly, those were pretty terrible.

Magdalene lives in Manhattan.

Eryk lives in Savannah, GA and draws comics. He is known for his work on Memetic, Cognetic, Constantine, and the Harvey and Eisner Nominated In The Dark Anthology amongst others. His hands are rarely free of ink.

By day, Logan is a data entry administrator. At night, he writes about comics, TV shows for sites like Graphic Policy and Nerds on the Rocks, and is even working on a play. Once he interviewed a vampire. Feel free to pick his brain on LGBTQ representation in comics at any time on Twitter @MidnighterBae
