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.

F BombCast 80: Blackest Nothing

Well kevin is away so you know what that means, Lots of Comic Talk, Wha, HUH?!?! yep the boys surprise everyone with a deep dark discussion of Blackest Night 8, but you have to wait till the end there to get your fix. Luckily for you the journey to the end is just as glorious as the end itself. We talk Movies (Sherlock Holmes, Ninja, Star Trek: Insurrection), we talk Children’s Shows (Yo Gabba Gabba, and TMNT the movie), and we talk bodily fluids, Well just boogers this time but damnit it still counts. TJ recounts the sad tail of being too fat to ride a rollercoaster, and the trick that amusements parks play on fat people. We learn more about TJ’s daughter as he explains her state of mind on heaps of sugar. Then comes the comics, oh the fantastic comics. Haunt Volume 1, Savage She Hulk #1, DMZ Volume 7, Nemesis #1, Demo, Brave and the Bold #34, and then comes the Blackest night discussion that you have been waiting for since 4 sentences ago.
