Rat Afterbirth

Paul and Derek are pleased to have on The Comics Alternative the great cartoonist, Roz Chast. Her new book, Going into Town: A Love Letter to New York, was recently released by Bloomsbury Publishing. The Two Guys have been longtime fans of Chast’s offbeat and hilarious New Yorker strips for years, and they spend a good bit of time talking with their guest about how she has translated that sense of humor into a long-form narrative. They also talk with Chast about her previous book, Can’t We Please Talk about Something More Pleasant?, her memoir on living with aging parents, and how her mother and father find prominent places in the latest work. Along the way, Chast discusses her process of writing — she indiscriminately explores narrative paths to see what does and doesn’t work — her unique non-comic-book community of cartoonist colleagues, and her experiences editing last year’s Best American Comics volume. And of course, she spends a lot of time talking about her experiences and love of Manhattan, complete with its mind-blowing variety of restaurants, its subway system, its out-of-the-way specialty shops, its giant waterbugs, and the annoyance of rat afterbirth. Yes, rat afterbirth.

Welcome Back My Friends. What you have been here the whole time? Oh then EXCUUUUUUUSE US. We had some shit to deal with and now you can consider it dealt. Sci fi is kind-of brought to a close, but then is restarted as we enter Star Trek month, i think. We learn that Iowa Caucus runner up Rick Santorum may not be the biggest fan of us, but what do we care. Surround sound makes everything better but Lord of the Rings Extended makes your life drop to nothing. Cartoons and Comics, even those of a digital nature are discussed. Enjoy!

The PKD Black Box – Episode #38: The Warrock-M.A.S.K.-Eliopolous Super Show!

This weeks “massive edition” of The PKD Black Box starts off with Shawn having a conversation with MC Adam Warrock (aka Eugene Ahn) about his new album “The War For Infinity,” the “West Coast Avengers Mixtape,” hip-hop & geekdom and even rappers that can communicate with dolphins. Then Jason Wood from the 11 O’ Clock Comics podcast stops by to talk about college life, Busta Rhymes, and everything you need to know about M.A.S.K. as he and Shawn go all nostaligic. Last, but definitely not least co-host Jon Carroll stops by as he and Shawn have a solid interview with talented creator Chris Eliopolous (Lockjaw & The Pet Avengers) as we discuss all-ages comics, the art of lettering, why having talent at times can be overrated, and the hard work that’s necessary to make comics.

This episode is so massive that the next PKD Black Box will not air until November 10th. In it’s place for the next two weeks will be the Tales From The Attic podcast.
