For this special edition of the show, Mike sat down with the creators of Afrodisiac and Street Angel: Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca. They talk about Mr. Ed, Marvel Comics, what it’s like to write as a duo, art process, and what small press means to the industry. Jokes are cracked, philosophy is waxed, and Jim finds out that Cable is dead.
Listen to AudioShocker Podcast #180.5 right now:
MOCK TURTLENECKS? Good lord why!?!?! Nick calls out DC Comics and Jim Lee for their fashion-backward Justice League redesigns. Put that in your Project : Rooftop and smoke it, fanboys!!!
ALSO: More on the DC Comics September reboot. Fifty #1 issues? Really? Mad Eater Lad #1? SERIOUSLY???
No that’s not a typo, the world’s most absurd comic book podcast celebrates America’s fighting men with mammaries! Awesome. Also included: Mike pop quizzes Ryan on all things coital, shocking revelations about Mr. Bloodhound, and why you can no longer call Fluffy your pet. We also dissect public statements by Dave Finch, Tom Brevoort, Mark Waid, and Stephen Lindsay, which is always fun. Market Spotlight shines on Coheed, Cambria, and a zombie hating Jesus. Then we talk about comics for a fairly inappropriate period of time because Ryan likes Detective Comics and The Tattered Man (featuring a mammary enhanced cover by Amanda Connor) at an Olympic level.

This week, Russ can’t find a co-host but wishes all those still listening a Happy Memorial Day. There are two interviews, one of which is with the cast of Galactic Girl in: Attack of the Starbarians, a stage play being performed June 11th (9pm), 12th (4pm), 15th (7pm) and 30th (9pm) at the Brick Theater in Williamsburg, NY, and the other of which is an old conversation Russ had with James Roday, star of the USA Network show Psych. Psych‘s fifth season comes to DVD this week and includes an extended cut of “Dual Spires,” the show’s Twin Peaks-inspired episode which was the focus of this interview. Music from Twin Peaks, Psych and The Kids in the Hall.
This is a short episode this week, but I do cover a lot of ground like the UFC, Majesty, organic food, and culture differences. Listen as my voice gets progressively worse throughout the episode. There was a lot of editing done.
I soldier through and cover The Vinyl Underground: Watching the Detectives (Si Spencer, Simon Gane, Cameron Stewart), which is very similar to every other English comic that takes place in London I’ve read. But it’s better than some, worse than others.

Jerry is on a peace seeking mission in a far off galaxy this week, but will return to our airwaves next week. Max Beckman is filling in for out nineteenth episode in which we spend much of our times discussing this week’s “War of the Green Lantern” books, Nick Spencer “Fear Itself” crossovers, and Wolverine titles. While we are getting a kick out of the Green Lantern titles, we did have some tough-love for DC this week.
