Minisode 6 | Jeff Parker

This week’s episode was recorded sometime in the past…! Nick and Paul sat down to record a special minisode a short while ago to talk about comics writer Jeff Parker–author of books such as Batman ’66, Aquaman, Flash Gordon, Justice League United, and many many more. The episode was originally going to cover the series “Kings Watch” but expanded to a larger discussion about Parker as a writer, how he approaches licensed comics, reinventing old characters for the modern era, and the “nuts and bolts” of Parker’s style. Relevant Links/Information Nick – @dethstarplnz Paul – @OhHiPaulie Jeff Parker (Wikipedia) This week’s music was by Infinity Shred. This week’s episode was produced by Mike Rapin and edited by Zander Riggs. Have a question? Want us to talk about a topic?

Episode 84 | The Politics in Comic Books

This week’s episode was recorded on September 18th, 2016. The show this week features guests Nick and Kate to talk about politics in comic books. The topic meanders a bit, but the ultimate discussion of how politics are handled, presented, inserted, and masked in comics is discussed. This may seem heavy, but, on the whole, it’s a fun talk about how we as comic fans read into stories.

Episode 82 | The Dinosaur Tangent

Brian and Tia join Mike to talk about… well, the intention this week was to talk about re-reading comics, but there were about twenty different tangents–dinosaurs being primarily one of them.
