This week the guys sit down with Alex Covington and Rica de Ocampo the stars of the hit web series We Might Be Superheroes. A show that combines action, adventure and comedy, harking back to the 60’s Batman TV Series. The girls were lot of fun and this was a great conversation and we hope you enjoy.

He’s back! It’s always great to chat with one of my very favorite comics writers, Michael Alan Nelson, who’s creating Hexed and Day Men for BOOM! Studios!
We discuss both of those comics, including Hexed’s history and how he became involved with Day Men. We also discuss a favorite subject of mine, women characters in comics, as well as the characters in each of the books he’s currently working on! I’m sure you’ll enjoy what he has to say, so don’t miss it!
Next week, I’ll have another great interview with another terrific comics creator, so be sure to listen in!
It’s a perfect day to record a podcast. In this episode we discuss the fourth Harbinger Trade, and we argue about the proper way to shoot a bow and arrow, talk about what sets Kris apart from the other Renegades, and channel Lou Reed. …you’re going to reap just what you sow…
We were lucky enough to talk to David Walker who is writing the upcoming Shaft comic book from Dynamite. Listen and don’t forget to tell your comic book shop to order Shaft for you … it promises to be a great series.

We also touch on Constantine, The Flash, Arrow, Gotham and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the last few minutes of the show. And thanks to Comics Alliance for the movie infographic.

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is The Big Book of Barry Ween, by Judd Winick. This collection contains all four previously released trades of The Adventures of Barry Ween, Boy Genius as well as the color-special crossover with Whiteout. First released in 1999, Barry Ween is one of the great indie comics of its time.
It stars the titular Barry Ween and his best friend Jeremy in a series of adventures involving vulva-shaped dimensional rifts, evil government conspiracies, time travel, aliens, sasquatchi, and the machinations of god-like entities. It is replete with crude humor and hilarious quips that will surely delight young and old alike.
In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated J. Michael Staczynski’s Thor, Astonishing X-Men, Secret Avengers, and Hack/Slash: Son of Samhain for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Thor. We will be reading all three trades of JMS’s run, which collect Thor, Vol. 3 #1-12; Thor, Vol. 1 #600-603; and Thor: Defining Moments Giant-Size #1. These are collected in trade simply as Thor, Vol. 1; Thor, Vol. 2; and Thor, Vol. 3. Comics, everbody.
We invite you to discuss both this episode and its topic on our subreddit.
Our hosts for this episode are Tobiah Panshin, Andrew Chard, Brant Gillihan-Eddy, and Cade Reynolds.
