Citywide Blackout

Cool concept albums and epic sci-fi adventures

May 13, 2019

Comic creator Jim Zub opens the show with a detailed look at the new title, Stone Star. Jim introduces us to the team he's working with to bring this great sci-fi title to life, the story covered in the five-part series, and plans for more down the road. You can get this title exclusively on Comixology Originals.

After the break, I'm joined by singer-songwriter Lissa Schneckenburger. Her new album, available May 17, is called “Thunder In My Arms.” It's a concept album that looks at her personal experience as a foster and adoptive parent. It's sung from a number of perspectives, including that of a child in foster care. Among the shows she has planned for the album release is a June 2 performance at Once in Somerville.

Lissa's music will close out the show, and after Jim's interview, I've got “It's Dangerous (To Go Alone) from Collin Russell Mullins. This is the third single from the Austin multi-genre, singer-songwriter-guitarist.
