you’re ready for another double-header and Kickstarter week because Episode 387
focuses on two excellent projects I hope you will support! First up is comics
creator Karl Kesel, who has Impossible
Jones, a high-quality graphic novel you can now support on Kickstarter by
going to impossiblekickstarter.com! This book is about a female
thief who gets super powers and is now considered a superhero, so she goes
along with it! We talk about how he brought this story to life as well as what
we might expect from them in the months ahead, including more Section Zero. This Kickstarter has been
doing well, so now is the perfect time to jump on to get great stretch goals!
Then everything wraps up with my discussion
about Kayless Issue #1 with writer Brent Larson from Silverline, the comics company
that is making this Kickstarter happen! Here’s the series’ quick description: “In 1967, Scott Anders rocketed into space on a secret,
CIA-sponsored mission referred to as the Kayless Project… to investigate an
astronomical anomaly known only in the darkest corridors of the U.S.
Government. Three days later all communication ceased. The project, seen as an
embarrassing and costly failure, was erased from history and forgotten. Until
today, when Scott mysteriously plummets to earth and emerges, unscathed, and
hellbent on one purpose… to return to the anomaly in space.” We talk about how the book
came to be, discuss the comic’s fascinating story, and what the future might
hold for Kayless. It’s an excellent science-fiction
story worthy of your support, so I recommend you go to Kickstarter at this link after you listen to our
It’s time to explore Infinite Dark! In Episode 386, I talk with Ryan Cady from the Top Cow comic, one of the very best science-fiction books out today! We discuss how the comics came to be, delve into its fascinating characters, and talk about what the future holds for Ryan and this series! Issue 8 is coming in July, so don’t miss it!
I hope you’re ready for a great conversation! In Episode 385, I talk with David Pepose, the writer of Spencer and Locke, a wonderful comic currently in its second successful run with a second trade due out on August 7! Here’s a description: “His partner’s imaginary… but the madness is all real! The critically acclaimed, five-time Ringo Award-nominated twist on the funny pages returns in Spencer & Locke 2, arriving in trade paperback this August from writer David Pepose, artist Jorge Santiago, Jr., and publisher Action Lab: Danger Zone. We discuss how the book came to be, how fans of Calvin and Hobbes, Sin City and Criminal have taken to the series, and what we might expect from David and these two in the future! Don’t miss it!
Join Ryan as he recaps and provides his commentary on the finale to Age of X-Man’s X-Tremists series. Then around the start of the month, check back for the main podcast where he and Rob discuss several of the X-Men books released each month. Thanks for listening!
Host Anthony Desiato revisits another former White Plains institution, COMIC BOOK HEAVEN, with longtime employee & customer Saad Siddiqui. They reminisce about the store’s owners (the husband & wife team of Morris & Irene), eccentric manager (“Bishop”), renowned back issue selection, various moves, and ultimate demise.
This week our rapidly shrinking gang of misfits teams up with the Atomic Knights to resolve a dangling plot from OMAC, as we take a look at Hercules Unbound #10. This issue has not only one, but two off-panel deaths, giant Dalmatians, and an implausibly small Great Lake…
Host Anthony Desiato brings everything full-circle in Season 5 with a look back at the lost comic shops of Westchester County, capturing a microcosm of the comics industry during the pivotal 1990s. Up first is the White Plains, NY, location of distributor and retail chain HEROES WORLD, the site of Anthony’s first-ever comic book purchase. Along for the ride is legendary returning guest Steve Oto, who–years before he would co-found Alternate Realities–shopped and worked at Heroes World.
This week we look at Hercules Unbound #9! This issue involves a flying comb and robots made of Play-doh! Also, weird hand gestures, and an old lady starting WWIII!! Also, a listener tells us what he thought of Avengers: Endgame! Nuff Said!
Rob and Ryan first dabble in the 616, checking in on frost giants and mutant fugitives. They then step across the stream into Age of X-Man, Nate Grey’s mindscape and try n gather bread crumbs to unravel the risque PG-13 mystery. Thanks for listening!
