Crisis On Infinite Midlives Show Episode 73: And Now, The Hulk, For Chuck Norris Stretchy Action Pants

CrisisOnInfinideMidlivesPodcastLogo_300x300While it might not be the biggest comics-related news of the week, it was an item that particularly infuriated us: the confirmation that DC Comics would be running half-page ads on two comic pages in their June comics.

While the news isn’t as dire as the original rumor made things out to be, putting advertising on comic pages even for just a month is potentially a slippery slope. So we talk about not just being enraged by more and more intrusive advertising, but the effect that accepting half-page ads could have on comic storytelling, story length, creator compensation, the secondary comics art market, and worst of all: people thinking that Twix is an acceptable candy choice.

This week also brought us the end of DC’s Convergence event. Which, as promised, seems to have opened up the entirety of DC’s history to modern storytellers… but at what cost? We talk about Brainiac’s passive characterization at the end of the story, and more importantly, DC’s seeming off-camera utter nullification of one of the biggest and arguably most important comic stories of all time.

We also talk about:

  • Fight Club 2 #1, written by Chuck Palahniuk with art by Cameron Stewart,
  • Grindhouse #5: Lady Danger: Agent of B.O.O.T.I, written by Alex De Campi with art by Mulele Jarvis, and:
  • Where Monsters Dwell #1, written by Garth Ennis with art by Russ Braun!

And now the standard disclaimers:

  • We record this show live to tape, with minimal editing. While this might mean a looser comics podcast than you are used to, it also means that anything can happen. Like Rob’s discussion with beloved and abused parts of his anatomy.
  • This show contains spoilers. While we try to shout out warnings ahead of time, just assume that we are not following the first rule of Fight Club.
  • This show contains adult, profane language, and is therefore not safe for work. You want your boss to hear about some slightly shadier (and made up) Twix products? Trust me, you do not. Get some headphones.

Superman Fan Podcast Episode #321 Part II: Superman Family Comic Cover Dated February 1961: Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane #23!

Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane 23!

Superman’s Girl Friend Lois Lane 23!

Download Episode 321 Part II!

This 400th individual episode of the podcast features SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 23, February 1961, which was published around December 22, 1960. It contained 32 pages for the cover price of a dime, and had a circulation of 458,000 copies, according to the Statement Of Ownership published inside the issue. The editor was Mort Weisinger, and the cover was pencilled by Curt Swan and inked by Stan Kaye, featuring the issue’s third and final story. Kurt Schaffenberger drew all three stories, which have been reprinted in SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN FAMILY vol. IV.

– THE 10 FEATS OF ELASTIC LASS (9 pgs.), was written by Otto Binder. This story was also reprinted in GIANT LOIS LANE ANNUAL 2, Summer 1963, published with the DC titles cover dated July 1963 on June 6, 1963.

– THE CURSE OF LENA THORUL (8 pgs.), was written by Jerry Siegel. This was his 57th silver age Superman family story covered in this podcast, and his 99th we’ve covered overall during the silver age. This story was also reprinted in 80 PG. GIANT 11, June 1965, published on April 15, 1965.

– THE WIFE OF SUPERMAN (8 pgs.), writer unknown according to Mike’s Amazing World Of DC Comics and, while the Grand Comic Book Database listed Jerry Siegel as the writer. Because of the disagreement on the writing credit of this story I am not counting this story toward Siegel’s silver age story production. This story was also reprinted in SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE 86, 80 PG. GIANT G-51, September/October 1968, published on July 11, 1968 for the cover price of a quarter.

Also highlighted in this episode are the ads and other features in this issue, including the LETTERS TO LOIS column and DC Comics’ Statement Of Ownership for this title.

Elsewhere in DC Comics, 30 titles carried the February or February/March 1961 cover date, which were covered at the end of Episode 236 for the week of August 22, 2012.

Comics Alternative Interviews: Tom Neely and Keenan Marshall Keller

Listen to the podcast!

A F**k-filled Episode

humans_teamOn this interview show, Derek and Andy W. have a fun time talking with Tom Neely and Keenan Marshall Keller. The first trade volume of their series, The Humans, recently came out from Image Comics, and next week the narrative arc will continue with issue #5, in which the simian bikers make their drug run in L.A. Although every issue of The Humans is filled with action and dynamic art, this upcoming installment is particularly energetic, complete with chase scenes, road fights, blown-off faces, pissing on police cars, plenty of explosions, and an abundance of profanity. In fact, as the Two Guys point out, this has to be the most “fucked”-filled episode of The Comics Alternative that the guys have ever recorded. (And of course, it bears the appropriate “explicit” rating in iTunes.) Keenan and Tom cut loose with the conversation, just as their biker gang rides roughshod over 1970s Bakersfield. They discuss the genesis of The Humans, the series’ humble beginning as a self-published #0 issue, their relationship with Image Comics, the joys of living and working (literally) right down the street from each other, the kick-ass work of colorist Kristina Collantes, and the creation of a larger Humans “universe,” HumansNo5complete with its own soundtrack. You will even hear in this interview original tunes created specifically for The Humans. Tom and Keenan also discuss their larger plans for the series, possible spin-off narratives that flesh out their storyworld, and Humans-branded biker magazines. Although most of the conversation is devoted to the current series, the Two Guys ask their guests about their past works, including Keenan’s Galactic Breakdown and Force Majeure, as well as Tom’s The Blot and Popeye. Derek is especially interested in talking with Tom about Henry and Glenn Forever and Ever, how he came up with the idea — not surprisingly, there was a lot of drinking involved — and the story behind the satanic Hall and Oates. Not only is there a lot of explicitness in this episode, but there’s tons of laughing, as well. If you love comics about biker apes, drug use, exploding heads, and blow jobs, then The Humans — and this interview with Tom and Keenan — is definitely for you!

Be sure to check out The Humans‘ website.


 Soundtrack for this episode:

  • The Zig-Zags – “Humans March (Let’s Die)”
  • Boss Kong – “Viet Kong”
  • Fairlight Empress – “Outside in a Cage”
  • Smelly Tongues – “Live to Ride”


Comics Alternative, Episode 137: Reviews of Headspace, You Don’t Say, Lost Property, and Vacancy

Listen to the podcast!

Southern Comfort

On this episode of The Comics Alternative podcast, Derek and Andy W. discuss four new titles. They begin with Ryan K. Lindsay, Eric Zawadzki, and Sebastian Piriz’s Headspace (IDW Publishing). This was originally an eight-issue digital series published by MonkeyBrain Headspacebetween March 2014 and April 2015. A law enforcement officer, Shane, finds himself in a surreal land with no memory of how he got there nor any idea how to leave. He eventually discovers that he is inside the mind of a violent criminal whose brain is being manipulated by the authorities. As the guys point out, this is a psychological thriller as much as it is an astute exercise in world-building. Next, they take an extensive look at Nate Powell’s You Don’t Say (Top Shelf), a collection of seventeen short stories published between 2003 and 2013. For readers who appreciate Powell’s previous works — such as Swallow Me WholeAny EmpireThe Silence of Our Friends, and the first two volumes of March — this is a wonderful opportunity to see the development as well as the full range of the creator. The earlier stories, several of which were part of his first Top Shelf book Release Me, demonstrate Powell’s autobiographical attempts to capture an artist in transition. But the emerging impact of the writer becomes more apparent in the later works YouDontSay1where you can more clearly see some of the characteristics that mark Powell’s style, such as the theme of race relations (often set in the South) and the psychological quality of his storytelling. In fact, Derek points out that in many of Powell’s work, there is a “dreamy” quality where transitions between scenes and even panels are represented in a fluid, and at times ambiguous, manner, reflecting the way in which memory and fantasy allows us to interpret the world. Both Andy and Derek highlight their favorites in this collection, including “Cakewalk” (written by Rachel Bormann), “Bets Are Off,” and the gothic “The Villa at the End of the Road.” These collected stories originally appeared in earlier Powell works, in various anthologies, as part of a CD release, and as self-published installments. Together they demonstrate the sheer force of Powell’s artistry. Finally, the Two Guys look at two recent releases from Nobrow, Andy Poyiadgi’s Lost Property and Jen Lee’s Vacancy. These are both part of the publisher’s unique 17×23 series, a graphic short-story project established to help young creators present their work in a concise and economic format. Lost Property is a brief tale about missing pieces, the various things we have lost Nobrow-LP-Vthroughout our lives — both literal and figurative — and how their rediscovery can help us define who we are. Lee’s comic is an anthropomorphic narrative about the costs of freedom. Simon, a young dog, is neglected by his owners, yearns to venture beyond his backyard fence, and then ventures into the woods with a deer and a raccoon, with mixed results. Both of these short works are beautifully produced — Andy specifically points out Nobrow’s distinguishing coloring — and highly affordable. For a little more than the cost of an ordinary American comic book, you can get a 17×23 publication that is more of a book than a periodical. The guys featured a Publisher Spotlight on Nobrow last year, and there’s certainly a reason that they keep coming back to their publications.
