My name is Pat Loika.
I'm a writer, illustrator and podcaster based out of San Diego, CA. I also dabble in photography and way too many other activities to list.
This is where I do my personal blogging, with random thoughts, nonsense, art and photos.
Here’s a teaser for an upcoming episode of Loikamania. I chatted with Brian Michael Bendis about all things X-Men, Powers, Scarlet, Age of Ultron, and of course, Guardians of the Galaxy.
In this excerpt we learn the genesis of the new Guardians series, his collaboration with Sara Pichelli, and of course, we find out how Brian learned of the Gaiman/Angela news…
Look out for the show in a few weeks!
Whenever I invite people to my podcast, it’s usually because I’m a fan of their work. And when I have them on, and I talk to them for whatever length of time I have, I usually express how I feel. I mean, if you have the chance to talk to the person who makes your favorite thing, wouldn’t you tell them how much you love and appreciate it?
My podcast exists to celebrate the things I like. It’s a way for me to learn and get people excited about the same things I’m into. I’m not a journalist, a critic or a pundit, and I’m not going to pretend to be one.
I’m a fan, and I’m pretty fucking proud of that.
So if you email me to tell me that my show is too positive and too nice to my guests, then I suggest you find something else to listen to. There’s enough negativity and misery in the world, and I won’t be adding to that.
