V for Vertigo, Episode 74: Interview with Anthony Del Col

There’s no review this week. Instead I interview Anthony Del Col, co-creator and co-writer of IDW’s Kill Shakespeare. He talks about the beginnings of Kill Shakespeare, the ideas behind it, and the future of the series. Believe it or not, we also talk some Vertigo comics.

Superman Fan Podcast Episode #139: Superman, Matinee Idol!

NOTE: This episode has been revised. After I discovered that only the first 30 seconds of the final edited episode had recorded (how this happened I don’t know) I re-recorded the episode and uploaded it.

The imaginary stories for this episode come from SUPERMAN 19, November / December 1942, published on September 4, 1942. The editor was Whitney Ellsworth. Jack Burnley drew the cover, which protrayed Superman carrying an automobile, without tires on its wheels, with a family aboard, running down the street. That’s road service, Superman style. This issue was reprinted in SUPERMAN ARCHIVES, vol. V.

Three of the issue’s four stories are featured:

CASE OF THE FUNNY PAPER CRIMES was written by Jerry Siegel, pencilled by John Sikela and inked by Ed Dobrotka. This story was also reprinted in SUPERMAN FROM THE THIRTIES TO THE EIGHTIES.

SUPERMAN’S AMAZING ADVENTURE, originally unnamed, but given a title for the Archive, was written by jerry Siegel and drawn by Leo Nowak. Since I don’t have a cupy of the SUPERMAN ARCHIVE, the plot for this story came from MIKE’S AMAZING WORLD OF DC COMICS at http://dcindexes.com.

SUPERMAN, MATINEE IDOL was written by Jerry Siegel, pencilled by Joe Shuster and inked by John Sikela. This story was also reprinted in SUPERMAN FROM THE THIRTIES TO THE EIGHTIES.

Next Episode: SHOWCASING LOIS LANE IN SHOWCASE 10!

Deconstructing Comics #243: “Frontline Combat”

EC Comics are primarily remembered as gruesome horror stories, but the company published in other genres as well. One EC staple was war comics, which enjoyed great popularity during the Korean War. One such title was Frontline Combat, the comic that dared to admit that “Marines retreat!” The now-huge names behind the series — Harvey Kurtzman, John Severin, Jack Davis, Wally Wood, and more — primarily intended it as an anti-war book, but is it? Is it possible to simultaneously portray war as horrible, and painstakingly present the tanks and guns in all their glory? Tim and Kumar discuss.

Cammy’s Comic Corner – Episode 138 (8/29/10)

Something a little different this episode. Since I couldn’t find one or five comics to talk about this week, I narrowed it down to three comics that came out from Image, all written by the same man; Robert Kirkman. I talk about Guarding The Globe #1 (Image), Invincible #74 (Image), and Science Dog Special #1 (Image).

More Kirkman than you can shake a Kirkman at!

Okay, it’s all been building to this. We’ve been dry humping Scott Pilgrim’s leg like nobody’s business and this is the climax. This is the money shot of all our fornitastic Scott Pilgrim love. This is our review of the Scott Pilgrim Movie. Dewayne Feenstra joins us again this week as we all gush (or maybe squirt?) with nothing but praise for Scott Pilgrim’s new Movie. If you’re a Scott Pilgrim virgin, or even if you’ve never liked the Pilgrim, after hearing our review, you’ll be cuming all over to our side of the debate, and basking in the sweet sweaty afterglow of Scott Pilgrim goodness.

Whew,.. I think I need a cigarette.

Enjoy!
