IMG_2836.jpg

It’s always exciting to meet your heroes. This week we have a lively discussion about the our earliest encounters with actual comic book creators.

We also talk about Rob Liefeld’s latest creation, George Perez’s retirement, and the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer.

Next week we are watching/discussing Venom! Because we like to keep things current!

Podcast - Episode 161: Grandway Comics

This week we were joined by Jeff Knott and Derek Jessome, the team that created Grandway Comics. Grandway is a very impressive new line of classic superhero adventure comics, printed in full colour on newsprint. Jeff and Derek are extremely talented, and have a lot of love for 60s and 70s comics and it shows on every page of their three debut titles: Space Cowboy & the Triumphateers, The Street-Fighting Man, and Grand Adventure.

You can check out their Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube Channel.

Sorry the episode is late this week! I have a cold and it’s making it hard to do anything. Thanks to Jeff and Derek for joining us, and thanks for listening!

Podcast: Episode 160 - Excited for 2019!

As we continue on with new and totally positive Living Between Wednesdays, we look ahead this week at what 2019 releases we are excited about. We also finally get around to acknowledging Stan Lee’s passing.

If you would like to watch that 1993 debate between Todd McFarlane and Peter David, you can check it out here. Fair warning, though, McFarlane is shirtless:

If you want to watch something much more palatable, you can check out the Cartoonist Kayfabe YouTube channel, where Ed Piskor and Jim Rugg analyze every issue of Wizard Magazine.

Ok, that shirtless image of Todd McFarlane is still taking up a lot of real estate on this blog post, so here’s the very attractive cast of Black Pather giving the Wakanda Forever salute at the Golden Globes earlier this week:

Podcast: Episode 159: Aquaman / Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Man. We turn our back for a few weeks and an Avengers trailer gets dropped, two Spider-Man movies are released, and Stan Lee dies.

Anyway, we are back! And we will continue to be back until Avengers: Endgame is released, or until the apocalypse, whichever happens first.

We saw Aquaman! And also Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Those are two movies that are in theatres right now! Later this year there will be two Captain Marvel movies in theatres at the same time. Wild times, guys.

We are going to try to make this “season” of the podcast super positive and include a lot of interviews and guests and good times. We probably won’t talk about the news very much, and we probably won’t review weekly comics.

Podcast - Episode 158: Takin' a Break

I think it’s pretty obvious that I haven’t been giving this podcast the time that it deserves. I am just stretched very thin right now and I need to focus on some other things. And Dave has some creative projects of his own to work on. The comic book industry and fandom has been getting me down lately, so I need to take some time to remind myself why I love comics.

But we will be back! And when we come back, it will be with better episodes!

Thank you, as always, for listening. We really do appreciate it.

In the meantime, check out Grandway Comics! You can see all the trailers there for Derek Jessome and Jeff Knott’s amazing original comics.
