105 - Jordan Morris | Demon Hunters, Comic Books, Mega Churches, and 90s Nostalgia

We are so excited to be sharing this interview with Jordan Morris today! We ramble about some current events in the intro segment but if you're wanting to jump right to the conversation you can skip to 21:33.

Jordan is a comedy writer with experience working in TV, features, comics, podcasts, digital comedy and video games!

For television he's written for shows on HBO Max, Disney Plus, Comedy Central, Cartoon Network and YouTube Originals.

For comics he created and co-wrote the 2x Eisner nominated graphic novel Bubble, based on the hit Maximum Fun podcast of the same name (also created by him!). They are currently developing a feature film based on Bubble for Sony Animation and Point Grey Productions.

His second graphic novel, Youth Group, is a YA horror-comedy out 7/16/24 from First Second Books! Available for pre-order NOW! This is the book we're primarily talking about in today's episode!

He's also written stories for Archie Comics for their Chilling Adventures line.

Jordan is a co-host of Jordan, Jesse, Go!, a totally nonsensical chat podcast with Jesse Thorn (NPR) and Free With Ads, a movie recap show with comedian Emily Fleming. You can also see him pop up semi-regularly on the hit YouTube show Good Mythical Morning as a variety of unpleasant characters.
