If you’re into superheroes from around the world, this week’s episode will be one you’ll want to listen to! Kalman Andrasofszky from Captain Canuck is here, and he discusses who this hero is and his connection to him as well as updating him for today’s readers. He also talks about the growing Canuck universe along with the animated episodes he’s working on! Oh, and he tells us just what a “canuck” is, too, so don’t miss it!

If you’re listening to this podcast, you’ve probably at some point encountered (if not read) a history of DC or Marvel. But how about Harvey Comics? or Cracked Magazine? And if you’re into animation, perhaps you’d like a history of DePatie-Freling or Total Television Productions?
Comics and animation historian Mark Arnold has been tracking down the info on these companies and more. He also discusses Joe Edwards’ Li’l Jinx strip, that time when Blondie had a comic book, why Wonderful World of Disney seldom showed cartoons, and the storage challenges inherent in his chosen profession!
First of all we take a look at the premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 – “Shadows”. We didn’t like the first season much, going as far as accusing the Whedon tribe of nepotism during that uncharacteristically angry Serenity show we did. It’s not the fact that Jed and Maurissa got to a place they never would have got to without family connections that wound us up so much as the fact that they were sat in the world’s most awesome sandbox and couldn’t put together a compelling show. Let’s hope they’ve grown as showrunners…
Next up, our epic mission to podcast every bit of Babylon 5 out there reaches Season 3 as we find ourselves setting off NSA alarms over Skype and accidentally recreating a Breaking Bad scene in the process.
Finally, I introduce Simon to the Rankin Bass classic The Flight of Dragons, one of my favourite childhood films. Followed by both of us watching The Last Unicorn for the first time, based on it being a film by the same team, released in the same period and still held in similarly high esteem…
Tim talks with the members of Studio Revolver in Atlanta, some of whom are have done work for Cartoon Network and storyboarded TV commercials. Not beginners, these are folks who are accomplished and in demand.
So why’d they decide to make their own Web comics? Isn’t that how artists try to make names for themselves? Time times are a-changin’…
Alternate Reality – Episode #362
Jon and Charlie are flying solo in this episode to talk about Superman: Unbound; the new, direct to video, animated feature. Tonight the guys talk much about how well they liked or didn’t like this movie. Everything from the voice cast to the animation style, to the plot points of the story are discussed. How does this movie stack up against all the other DC animated projects? What do the guys think of the upcoming Flashpoint project? Will all animated DC features take place in the “New 52” going forward? When is Partin coming back? All these answers and more await you,….. well except for the one about Partin.

Join your hosts, Gavin and Dan for this Christmas special of the Sidekickcast as they delve deep into the world of comic books. In the news this week there’s Age of Apocalypse, G I Joe Retribution, The Dark Knight Rises, Avengers vs X-Men and The Amazing Spider-Man.
Reviewed in Stack Attack:
Avenging Spider-Man #2 (Zeb Welles, Joe Madureira)
Wolverine and the X-Men #2 (Jason Aaron, Chris Bachalo)
Avengers: X-Sanction #1 (Jeph Loeb, Ed McGuinness)
Stitched #1 (Garth Ennis, Mike Wolfer)
In the comic book news quiz with a twist, Secrets and Lies, Dan needs to make up so ground before Gavin becomes nothing but a bad memory. As part of the #youdecide event, you the audience have decided the Sidekicks should try out the new segment, Saturday Morning Cartoons, this week; Young Justice. Don’t forget to listen past the outro music for the usual brand of jovial out-takes.
Doug TenNapel’s name is known in a wide variety of media in the U.S., from video games to animation to, of course, comics. His Neverhood game is worshiped by, among many others, our own Kumar. His graphic novels have won acclaim but also some controversy, in part because of the statements on spirituality that are made in some of them, such as Black Cherry, the most spiritual book that you’ll never see in a Christian bookstore. (Could it be the nudity and F-bombs?)
Tim takes an hour of Doug’s scant free time to discuss storytelling media, how each fiction genre tends to tell certain stories, and inconsequential alien landings.
Martheus and Janet Wade are interviewed about their latest Original Graphic Novel, Jetta: Tales of The Toshigawa – Full Circle, then Jon Carroll swings by as he and Shawn discuss the iPad 2 and Race In Comics, and later on Donny Salvo stops by as Shawn tells him about the strangest dream he’s ever had, which then lead to a slew of tangents to later finding out what John Cena and Donny have in common!
This episode has everything you could possibly need! Enjoy.
In Episode 40 Shawn and Donny answer questions from the listeners and podcaster Darrell Taylor, discuss comics, Big Daddy Kane, Shaft, Iron Man on roller skates, Secret Wars I and II omnibus, Jolt Cola, Rambo vs. Chuck Norris, Jim Kelly, tangents, and tell the world that Chocolate Skittles are nasty. Enjoy, and have a great Thanksgiving!
