It’s a great week here at this podcast because you’ll get to enjoy my interview with one of my favorite comics creators, Brian Buccellato! We discuss his latest hit series, Sons of the Devil from Image Comics. Brian talks about how the book launched, its characters and many other aspects of this fascinating series! We also get to talk about many of his other excellent books, including Injustice and Detective Comics from DC, Foster from OSSM Comics and The Black Bat from Dynamite! Be sure to listen to this high-power talent who tells some of the best stories on the stands today!
Roland Mann has been a writer, an editor, a teacher, a speaker and, most importantly, a comics creator. In episode 181, we chat about his creations, including A Demon’s Tails, focusing on a character he made for Cat & Mouse, and Krey, the story of a barbarian human in a world with humanity and mutants constantly in a state of war. He shares many great stories about his experiences working in this crazy comics industry, but you’ll want to hear what he shares about Malibu being acquired by Marvel a while back! He just might clear up a thing or two about that event!
Ep 25: This episode is intended to be more on the DC Comic tip. Jim and Eric discuss television news, the supergirl trailer and a little Batman: Arkham Knight. Then they jump into this week’s books and while Eric had a downer week, it’s Jim’s turn to shine. They also talk ghosts, Quato from Total Recall and tell a bunch of Dick jokes. Ryan Clark joins in with his Other Side review of the WYtches Trade Paperback and Dan gives us a spoiler edition of Geek News.

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Stumptown, written by Greg Rucka and drawn by Matthew Southworth and Justin Greenwood. Set in modern day Portland, Oregon, Stumptown is a detective story starring Dex Parios, a private eye and gambling addict.
In our recommendation section our hosts nominated Umbrella Academy, The Killer, Afterlife with Archie, Green Arrow, Vol. 1-3 (Kevin Smith), and The Autumn Lands (née Tooth and Claw) for discussion on our next episode, and our selected title is Umbrella Academy, Vol. 1 & 2.
Our hosts for this episode are Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Kayleigh Fleeman, and Cade Reynolds.
In John W. Allie’s The Non-Seen Chapter 1, a little girl finds an old book at the Salvation Army store, written in a strange language. Eventually she figures out how to read it and meets an earless cat. Tim and Mulele’s ears detect an interesting story here, but it’s a bit hard to hear over the needless noise.

We’re a couple of weeks out of San Diego Comic-Con, and, even though we can hardly believe it, it turns out that one of the panels we’ll be missing the most? The Heroes Reborn panel on Sunday in Hall H.
I think we can all agree that Heroes kinda went sideways in its later seasons, but we’ve always had a soft spot for the show, ever since seeing the pilot at our very first San Diego Comic-Con. And all these years later, it’s easy to forget just how exciting the show was in its first season. So we discuss what was so exciting about the show in its first season, what went wrong as time went on, what we know about Heroes Reborn, and what we want to see from this miniseries.
We also discuss the Miles Morales-starring Spider-Man book announced by Marvel last week, including what this might mean for Peter Parker, why it was a foregone conclusion that Miles would not only get his own post-Secret Wars book, but keep the name Spider-Man, and what the timing of this announcement might have to do with recent Marvel Studios activity.
We also discuss:
We Are Robin #1, written by Lee Bermejo with art by Jorge Corona, and:
Gotham by Midnight #6, written by Ray Fawkes with art by Juan Ferreyra!
And, the usual legalese:
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 learning why D-Man is to beautiful and ephemeral a character to ever be put on film.
This show has a lot of spoilers. While we try to shout out warnings ahead of time, if you want to find out for yourself if they ever Saved The Cheerleader? Be forewarned.
This show contains adult, profane language, and is therefore not safe for work. You want your employer to learn the finer points of performing a Spider-Mohinder? Get yourself some headphones.
Reviews: No reviews because it’s a Heroes Con panel special!
Jimmy moderated the DC Comics panel at Heroes Con last weekend with Ben Caldwell, Ming Doyle, Jeremy Haun, Stephane Roux, Babs Tarr and Robert Venditti. Hear how they got their start in comics, the books they are doing for DC, their favorite onomatopoeia and more! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
Episode 436: Post Convergence Continues: Secret Six, Wonder Woman, All Star Section 8, Green Arrow: Sean and Jim chat about Secret Six 3, All Star Section 8 #1, Green Arrow 41, Wonder Woman 41 and Superman/Wonder Woman 41 and more.
Might as well name this episode after the topic Doc Fluxx and Father Shepherd thoroughly analyze. They had read as many Secret Wars titles as they could as to give you their objective and superior opinions.
First, some news items: Tom Holland is cast as Spider-Man under a director who has a curiously sparse IMDB page. Doctor Strange begins filming in jolly ol’ London and Kelly Sue DeConnick abandons her Carol Corp! All that and more on episode 80 of Feed It Comics!!
