Back on the Edge

Paul and Derek are excited to have Karen Berger on The Comics Alternative. The first release from her new Dark Horse Comics imprint, Berger Books, occurs next week, and the guys talk with Karen on the cusp of this event. The Two Guys ask their guest about the genesis of Berger Books as well as her efforts in launching new titles — such as Hungry Ghosts, Incognegro: Rennaisance, Mata Hari, and The Seeds — and securing impressive talent. But they also talk with Karen about her time working at DC Comics and establishing the industry-defining Vertigo brand. This is a fun and informative interview, and Karen Berger is one of the most engaging and pleasant guests the Two Guys have ever had on the podcast.

V for Vertigo, Episode 93: Valentine’s Day Blues

Another year, another Valentine’s Day by myself. Oddly enough, I understand women more because of the very insightful book I’m reading, The Female Brain. For my Valentine’s gift, I may give myself Netflix.

I talk about the rather violent and tough to read book yet insightful, Unknown Soldier (Joshua Dysart, Alberto Ponticelli). Where do Americans go when we want to leave our country?
