COMIC WRITER & ARTIST
Kent Heidelman is a former Comic Shop Co-Owner, and past intern of comic publisher: Archaia Entertainment.
He is the Creator, Writer, & Artist of the FREE comic: Scariest In Screamforth. A story about three kid monsters in a monster town trying to solve a dark mystery. Very Spooky-Cute! This story began as a creative exercise on 24 Hour Comic Day.
Kent is also the Creator of the webseries Comic Review Puppet, which stars Kirby McStaples, an energetic puppet that posts about his favorite comics. Kent and Kirby met in an alternate reality past life and discovered they both had a passion for recommending great stories. The webseries came about quickly afterward.
Kent first started in podcasting by Co-Creating Comic Book Workshop with Jason Hammons. The show is about making comics, discussed with the top creators in the industry! Jason and Kent first met sitting next to each other in the front row of a Comics Coloring class in Los Angeles. They found that they were both equally frustrated with the lack of modern resources in the world about being a professional comic creator. Comic Book Workshop podcast was made in response.
Laughing at comics isn't just a hobby for Kent, he's also the Co-Creator of Comics Out Loud, a parody webseries that pokes fun of classic comics while reading them with crazy voices. The show came to life instantly with C. Marcus Odden when Kent bought a gigantic, almost poster sized hardcover issue of Fantastic Four #48 from the 1960s. Each of them couldn't stop mocking or roasting the outdated writing, and somewhere in the chaos clicked a record button.
Meanwhile... a sister show was about to be born...
Similar to Comics Out Loud is Kent's second podcast: Bad Audiobooks. A parody series poking fun of novels & literature while reading them with ridiculous voices! Co-Created with Nick Mazmanian, the two future podcasters first met (perhaps by fate) as co-workers at a bookstore. Nearly a decade later, Nick & Kent now roll up their face sleeves each week and read like poorly trained circus animals.
Kent lives and works in Orange County, California.
