Jimmy has tamed the beast that was San Diego Comic Con and survived to tell the tales! Here, you’ll hear his recap of the show. Just a few fun tidbits of what went down, people he met, celebs he saw, elbows he rubbed, parties, roundtable sessions, interviews, awesome press rooms, hotels, outside of Comic Con, and all of the madness! He mostly did press rooms but managed to get some 1:1 interviews as well. He chatted with the Clare Kramer (“Glory” on Buffy the Vampire Slayer) about her new documentary that she directed called Joyrider. He also talked to pop star Lights about her upcoming album Skin & Earth and the comic book mini-series she created/wrote/drew/colored/lettered/etc. that coincides with it. On the last day of the con, he conversed with Shannon Wheeler about his new book Sh*t My President Says as well as his past work. And finally, Jimmy had his annual therapy session interview with clinical psychologist pal Dr. Andrea Letamendi discussing superheroes, Star Wars, and real life issues.

Starting next week and the following few weeks after, there will be no regular format shows. Only SDCC press room specials. Jimmy needs that long just to recover from all of the craziness that is Comic Con International. You will hear roundtables for Inhumans, Wynonna Earp, Doctor Who, Legends of Tomorrow, Batman and Harley Quinn, Dirk Gently, Supergirl, Dark Matter, Battlestar Galactica reunion, Gotham, iZombie, Justice League Action, Lucifer and Teen Titans Go! He missed some rooms that he wanted to cover but boy howdy did he still cover a lot!

Because of all the mad planning and prepping, Jimmy does a quickie solo episode to let you know what his media coverage/plans are for this year’s SDCC. He recruits some friends to do some mp3 reviews for him so it’s not entirely all Jimmy all the time. You’re welcome! Thanks to Rich, Emily, Monica and John for sending their audio reviews in. News includes: a new Jessica Jones comic is coming from Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos, DC/Vertigo is bringing a comic book sequel to the 1987 film The Lost Boys, Betty Boop returns to comic books via Dynamite Entertainment, Dark Horse announces more adult coloring books including Star Trek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Bryan Lee O’Malley has a new graphic novel trilogy coming your way.

Jimmy will do an SDCC recap next week and will probably just release SDCC specials for 2-3 weeks to catch up on life. So, no regular format podcast for at a bit. Hope you enjoy all the massive coverage he’s going to get! And if you see him out there, say “hi”!

ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 70: THE WALKING DEAD – Negan to Now

https://soundcloud.com/comicsverse/episode-70-the-walking-dead-from-negan-to-now

The brilliant podcast team of Justin Alba, Dennis Mui, Pete Imbesi, Emily Coleman, and Corey Spanner assembled to discuss and analyze the last fifty issues of THE WALKING DEAD. Fans of the comic will know instantly what happened, and the earth-shattering events that took place over those issues. Fans of the show will be happy to know the issues discussed were all about Negan, the latest villain on THE WALKING DEAD television show.

As issue #100 dropped, the trajectory of the book changed. Negan, nefarious and enigmatic, brutally murders one of the key characters of the book. From then on, an all-out war erupts between Rick Grime’s group of survivors and “The Saviors,” led by the baseball-bat wielding Negan.

LISTEN: Want to hear about another comic book turned movie? Our podcast on the X-Men spinoff, NEW MUTANTS, goes from issues #1 – #100 of the original run!

Ideas of morality and leadership are debated as the team compares Negan and Rick and ask themselves if they are even really that different.

In the aftermath of war, our heroes jump ahead in time three years, something the book has never done. Did it work? Did the creative team use such a huge storytelling tool to their advantage or did it fall back? The team discusses this along with other ideas of storytelling, as a book that has been going on for this long surely has a reason to keep going.

Finally, a new threat arrives and attacks Rick Grimes and our other favorites. A sadistic and radical group of rogues attack and kills many characters, and the podcast crew decides whether this is too much or too little in the wake of a villain as good as Negan.

HEAR: If you’re an Image Comics fan, listen to our all-female cast discuss MONSTRESS, a new feminist work by Marjorie Liu set in a fantasy feudal Japan!

Listeners be warned, the crew delved deep into the emotional and structural points of the book to analyze why such a simple story of survival has turned into one of the longest-running and financially successful comics on the shelves today!

Make sure to give it a listen and, as always, let us know how you feel in the comments below.
