V for Vertigo, Episode 95: Zoom In!

This show’s more comic oriented than normal. How odd. I talk a lot about the new digital comic app for the Android and one with the strangest spelled name—Graphic.ly. It’s a terrible program that needs a lot of work. You can hear me struggle with it.

A Preacher movie has been confirmed and I think I’m the only one who can see it working. I’m an optimist. Lastly, I finish the limited series of Army@Love: Generation Pwned (Rick Veitch, Gary Erskine). Why wasn’t this an ongoing especially in today’s world?

#266 Jamie Delano: The Accidental Writer

Hellblazer 1Jamie Delano never set out to be a comics writer. His high school friend, a bloke by the name of Alan Moore, was big into comics, but Delano was not a comics reader. It was only at Moore’s suggestion, many years later, that Delano tried out, doing some work for Marvel UK, then landing the job writing Moore’s John Constantine character in the Hellblazer title as it launched in 1987. The rest is history. Delano is nice enough to give some of his time to Tim for an interview.

Chronic Insomnia – Issue # 181 Candy For Degenerates!

Chronic Insomnia, the world’s most absurd comic book podcast somehow missed the cut on USA Today’s “Top 10 Comic Book Podcast” list.  This week Mike and Ryan decide to make a run for # 1 in your hearts by doing what we do best – giving the First Amendment a run for its money.

I’m pretty sure that at some point we discuss the ComicsPRO meeting that just wrapped up in Dallas, IDWs Godzilla # 1 promotion, and Marvel’s “Next Big Things”, which all sound an awful lot like seven-times recycled old things.  My sleep deprived brain has some vague recollection of extolling the virtues of Amazing Spider-Man, Savage Dragon, and the latest installment of Silver Surfer.  All well and good.

But the important thing is that we talk about Ryan’s once-in-a-lifetime conversation with Gail Simone, an exciting crossover mega event with Comic Tube, why Facebook is like that friend of yours constantly trying to shove a pineapple in your out door, and a tear-tugging trip into the dark heart of Canada: land of puppy murderers.  We do it all in the most socially irresponsible manner possible, of course.  Find out why Pop Candy’s Whitney Matheson would call us “the comics podcast I wouldn’t listen to on a dare” if she had ever heard of us.

As always make sure to check out our good friends in Canada on Where Monsters Dwell.  We also have an excellent blog with much less poop and semen then our show which you should definitely check out.  Oh yeah, we love the all of you.

Superman Fan Podcast Episode #167: Superman Family Of Comics Cover Dated March/April 1955: Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #4 & World’s Finest Comics #75!

Episode #167: Superman Family Of Comics Cover Dated March/April 1955!

Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #4 & World's Finest Comics #75!

SUPERMAN’S PAL JIMMY OLSEN 4, March/April 1955, was published around January 20, 1955. It contained 32 pages for 10 cents. Mort Weisinger was the editor. The cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye, featuring the third and final story of the issue, KING FOR A DAY. The first two stories of the issue were THE DISAPPEARANCE OF SUPERMAN and THE HUNTED MESSENGER. All three stories were eight pages long and were done by the same creative team: writer Otto Binder, penciller Curt Swan and inker Ray Burnley. This issue was reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN FAMILY vol. I.

WORLD’S FINEST COMICS 75, March/April 1955, was published around January 27, 1955. It also contained 32 pages and sold for a dime. Jack Schiff was the editor, and the cover was drawn by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye. The Superman/Batman story was the twelve page story SUPERMAN AND ROBIN!, written by Bill Finger, pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye. This story has been reprinted in WORLD’S FINEST COMICS ARCHIVE vol. I, SUPERMAN IN THE FIFTIES, BATMAN ANNUALS vol. II and SHOWCASE PRESENTS: WORLD’S FINEST vol. I.

The last two stories in this issue were:

– THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS ARROWS, featuring Green Arrow, drawn by George Papp.

– THE BATTLE OF THE MEDICINE MEN, featuring Tomahawk, which was pencilled by Bruno Premiani and inked by Ray Burnley.

With the untimely death of comic book writer Dwayne McDuffie this week, I also mention two comic book titles he wrote which I read and still have those issues, ICON by Milestone/DC and DAMAGE CONTROL by Marvel. While DAMAGE CONTROL has not been collected in any reprint editions that I am aware of, ICON has been collected in two editions, collecting the first 32 of the title’s 42 issue run. They are titled ICON: A HERO’S WELCOME and ICON: MOTHERSHIP CONNECTION.

Jill Pantozzi, who writes THE NERDY BIRD blog at http://www.thenerdybird.com, and the column HEY, THAT’S MY CAPE at newsarama.com, mentioned some of her favorite comic book pros. She also proposed, for those on twitter, tweeting some of your favorite comic book creators, and using their twitter names @ if they are also on twitter. At the end of your post, add the hashmark #CreatorLove. Let’s show our appreciation for those in the comic book industry while they’re here to enjoy it, and re-read some of Dwayne McDuffie’s great comic book stories. You can read Jill’s full column at http://www.newsarama.com/comics/hey-thats-my-cape-mcduffie-appreciate-creators-110223.html .
