In a mostly tangent-free episode, we speak with Tony Parker, artist for the Dark Horse series This Damned Band. We discuss his career from his early days doing gaming art to his current projects and the art classes he is teaching. We also play with his very large dog, Cerberus, and discuss gaming systems, weddings, the challenges of art storage, and the ups and downs of the original art market
This week, we are joined by two guests: comic artist Al Sparrow and world famous cosplayer Michele Snyder. We review the new comic “This Damned Band,” give a send off to wrestling legend “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, and discuss Michele’s stint as Sharknado Gal and all things sharky, while managing to fit in the topic of bad movies, with an emphasis on MST3K and RiffTrax. As if that wasn’t enough, we manage to tangent into Megaforce, Denise Richards, speculate about our “Cruisin’ for Chick” documentary, and Steve hates on Wil Wheaton and Mark McGrath and continually refuses to get Gonzo’s name right
Jason and Steve welcome special guest John Derrick West onto the podcast, to discuss Chrononauts, Netflix’s Daredevil, Rob Liefeld, the Nicholas Cage of rap, and Steve sings Phil Collins
A special bonus episode! Steve talks with game designer Andy Ashcraft and comedian Jackie Kashian about comic books, board games, and personal trauma. Check out Andy’s newest game, The Siblings Trouble, now live on KickStarter!
Recorded live from the median strip of Apache Blvd, we are joined by returning guest Ryan Cody to discuss the upcoming ACME con, his Doc Unknown kickstarter, and the economics of indie comics. We also cover the color of strip clubs, the popularity of My Little Pony, why Ryan hates ICME, and Steve debuts his Irish accent!
This episode is sort of a big deal, as we have former Flash editor and DC writer Brian Augustyn to discuss the new television series, the previous series, and the comics that spawned them. Along the way, we also delve into golden age illustration technique, the history of Carmine Infantino, and very little love to the Rainbow Raider
Sorry for the last posting, but this one was worth waiting for! Our longest episode ever! Steve, Jason, and super special guest star Al Sparrow discuss the Legion of Superheros while fending off attacks from their arch enemy, Battery Drainer Boy.
We talk to our special guest, comic book artist and writer Ryan Cody, about his career, Jack Kirby’s career, and which episode number we are on. Plus, we are entirely free of random tangents about 80s movies (almost).
