Comic Timing – Episode 184: Changing Political Climates and Comics


As the title implies, Comic Timing goes political this episode, partially as some catharsis after the events of the past few weeks, and also as a way to try and explain and further understand the political climate, and how it effects the comic book industry. Brandon Christopher of Pop Culture Clash, Donovan Moragn Grant of Questions, We Don’t Have Answers, Brent Kossina and Ian Levenstein discuss the decision made by Humberto Ramos and George Perez to refuse attending conventions in Red States after the President Elect takes office, as well as comic shops refusing to stock Motor Crush issue 1 because it has a black female lead. We also discuss tangential political topics that are not entirely comic related, but are still relevant to the overall conversation.

This episode may not be for everyone, but I really do feel like there is some excellent conversation within. No punches were pulled, but everyone involved did their best to be respectful while speaking their minds. Give it a listen and see for yourself!

ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 49: Interns Take Over! — BATGIRL in “Batgirl of Burnside”

Welcome to another entry of the ComicsVerse podcast, “Interns Take Over!”  This podcast series allows members of the ComicsVerse staff and interns to dedicate episodes to storylines and collections of their choosing. For my pick, I decided to go with BATGIRL: BATGIRL OF BURNSIDE (which collects issues #35 – #40 of the current BATGIRL and material from DC COMICS SECRET ORIGINS #12) series co-written by Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher, with art by Babs Tarr over layouts by Stewart.

CLICK: Want more BATGIRL? Check out this written review of Stewart and Tarr’s BATGIRL: “Batgirl of Burnside!”

I’ve been an avowed fan of the re-launch since it began, hence why I suggested it in the first place. However the other members of the panel bring completely different perspectives to our analysis. Both Alex Katz and Josh Cui have extensive familiarity with the New 52 Bat-Verse and were wary of the new approach in BATGIRL. On the other side of the spectrum, neither Jamie Rice nor Kay Honda had previously read any Batgirl comics but had a lot of things to say!

WATCH: Exclusive Interview with BATGIRL co-writer Brenden Fletcher.

Bringing together all these various viewpoints, we were able to examine all facets of the collection including the plot, Babs Tarr’s artwork, the changes to Barbara Gordon’s characterization, the Burnside setting, the villains, the supporting cast, the book’s use of social media and hipster culture and Batgirl’s new costume. In addition, we examine several of the controversies that have erupted around the arc, including the controversial character Dagger Type and the changes made to his issue for the collection, and the idea of Barbara Gordon drinking and having a hangover. We even take a slight detour to discuss the controversy surrounding the aborted BATGIRL #42 Killing Joke variant cover controversy.

We had a great time recording this, and hope you all have a great time listening to it, whether you’re a Batgirl super-fan or a novice.

V for Vertigo, Episode 105: We Have Heart

This is a short episode this week, but I do cover a lot of ground like the UFC, Majesty, organic food, and culture differences. Listen as my voice gets progressively worse throughout the episode. There was a lot of editing done.

I soldier through and cover The Vinyl Underground: Watching the Detectives (Si Spencer, Simon Gane, Cameron Stewart), which is very similar to every other English comic that takes place in London I’ve read. But it’s better than some, worse than others.

CBP: Back Issue Pitt #1 – Seaguy

ep 001 Seaguy

Listen to this episode

So far, 2010 has not been kind to us at Comic Book Pitt. First there were illnesses, now there’s blizzards. We’re trying our best to get new episodes recorded, but in the meantime, this is the perfect opportunity to introduce our new mini-show, Back Issue Pitt!

Back Issue Pitt is just what it sounds like; we’ll be talking about an old mini-series or a run of issues for a title that we’ve never read before. It may be a story that was huge or one that no one’s heard of.

The first BIP episode features Seaguy, a three-issue mini-series published by Vertigo Comics in 2004. Written by Grant Morrison, art by Cameron Stewart.

(Also, if this recording sounds a little off in places, it’s because I experimented with recording on my iPod.)

This episode’s music is by Frank Sinatra.

Comic Book Pitt can be found on iTunes and is a proud member of the Comics Podcast Network.
