Episode 168 - Game Changers

This week we are talking about game changing ideas that changed the DC and Marvel universes forever! Sometimes a creator comes up with something that really sticks, and those things should be acknowledged because we tend to take them for granted, as fans.

You can see those wild Charles Burns inks on the John Romita Jr pencils that Dave was talking about here:

I truly would love to see a whole book of different artists inking the same pencils.

And, of course, this episode title, GAME CHANGERS, had nothing to do with my debut novel, GAME CHANGER, which is a delightful smutty romance about a closeted NHL star who falls in love with the adorable guy who works at his local smoothie shop. GAME CHANGER can be bought wherever you buy ebooks (Kobo, Amazon, Barnes & Noble…all your faves). And the second book in my GAME CHANGERS series, HEATED RIVALRY, comes out on Monday, March 25. You can preorder that now. But those books have nothing to do with what we are talking about in this episode.

Thanks for listening! Next week we will be talking about Game Failures(?), which would be big ideas that didn’t land at all and were quickly forgotten or undone.

Guys, it is minus thirty degrees Celsius here today in Nova Scotia. Get me the heck out of here!

This week Dave and I are talking about fictional locations in Marvel and DC comics, and fantasizing about visiting them. Because even Dinosaur Island sounds good right about now. At least I’ll die warm.

Thanks for listening! We’ll be back next week!

This week we have a very special episode! Dave is joined by writer/artist Michel Fiffe (Copra, Zegas, Bloodstrike: Brutalists) to talk about lots of cool stuff, including Fiffe’s new G.I. Joe miniseries, Sierra Muerte!

What a special birthday treat for Dave!

I’ll be back on the show next week to talk about important things, like whether or not Henry Cavill has merged with his dog yet or whatever.
