Jimmy attended the press conference for Better Call Saul. Attending were stars Bob Odenkirk, Giancarlo Esposito, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando, producers Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould! How will last season’s big death affect everyone? What other Breaking Bad characters might we see? What’s been the difference in character for those that have been on both shows? Tune in to find out! Jimmy got some legs out of his one question as Odenkirk repeated it to the producers (whom arrived later) and the entire panel ended up answering. No regular format show over the next few weeks. Just the awesome and massive SDCC coverage!! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love! Also, get a hold of us!

Comics Alternative Podcast Episode 55: A Review of David B.’s Black Paths and Incidents in the Night, Book 1, and Jonathan Hickman and Mike Costa’s God Is Dead #1

Of Dreamscapes and Gods

IncidentsNightThis week on The Comics Alternative, Tof once again joins Derek to talk about comics, and this time they’re reviewing new books by David B. — Black Paths (SelfMadeHero) and Incidents in the Night, Book 1 (Uncivilized Books) — and issue #1 of God Is Dead by Jonathan Hickman, Mike Costa, and Di Amorim (Avatar). The Two Guys with PhDs begin by BlackPathsdiscussing David B.’s surreal and idiosyncratic style, and how that style manifests itself in his two most recent books. First they look at Black Paths and how David B. uses history,  the Italian poet Gabriele D’Annunzio and the ill-fated Free State of Fiume, as a scaffolding for his story. Tof and Derek also highlight the various narrative connections between that book and Incidents in the Night, pointing out the creator’s penchant for interlinking GodIsDeadhis narratives though iconic markers. They talk in-depth about David B.’s surrealistic style, his “flat” or two-dimensional art, and the dream-like world where most of his stories take place. Next, the Two Guys turn to the first installment of Jonathan Hickman and Mike Costa’s new six-issue miniseries, God Is Dead. Although Tof is a little uncertain about Di Amorim’s art (e.g., the depiction of women), Derek is fascinated by the way that Hickman and Costa set up their storyworld, giving us several events that promise to converge in the coming issues. There’s a lot to listen to…so start listening already!

Jimmy sat down with the cast and creator of the hit AMC show Breaking Bad. Yes, I know. It’s not really in the “nerd” realm of stuff we normally cover on CNI. But, as I mentioned in shows past, SDCC is a place where we can cover things that aren’t normally covered since they are all there. Plus, I know plenty of you watch this show too! Bryan Cranston, Anna Gun, RJ Mitte, Aaron Paul, Bob Oedenkirk, Jonathan Banks,  Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt and creator Vince Gilligan all sat down and chatted about the current and final season. Great insights into the characters and story. Spoilers do abound if you’re not caught up! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
