On Location: The First July Visit to Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find

Happy 4th!

Michael and Derek are back at Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find for the first of two July on-location episodes. They visit the shop on Independence Day, and they use the occasion to discuss current trends and titles in the comics industry. Mike explores recent manifestations of The Avengers and Justice League, focusing on Marvel and DC through what he calls the “classic Coke” approach. His discussion takes him across the writings of Jason Aaron and Scott Snyder, and then circling back to Tom King’s current work on Batman and the recent marriage event. Looking at the non-mainstream side of comics, Derek talks about his reaction to the first two issues of Evan Dorkin and Veronica Fish’s Blackwood and the initial offering of Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer, part of Titan Comics’ Hard Case Crime series. He also brings up Naoki Urasawa’s 20th Century Boys and the recent announcement of new Perfect Editions from VIZ Media. And, it being July 4th, the Two Guys also discuss comics, politics, and the current state of the country.

ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 84: Sex in Comics

Episode 83 of the ComicsVerse Podcast centers around sex in comics! ComicsVerse Comics and Managing Culture Editor Jamie Rice is joined by panelists Bob Franco, Dellen Miller, Phil Casey, Matt Murphy, Mark Bouchard, and Kay Honda!

LISTEN: Want more tawdry comic book stories? Listen to the comics that are our guilty pleasures!

In this episode, our panelists discuss books like SEX CRIMINALS, CATWOMAN, and SAGA in an attempt to unpackage the way in which sex and sexuality function in comic narratives. First, they recount the days of the CCA, or Comics Code of America, and the impact that it had on the American comics industry before moving on to discuss the idea of feminist sex in comics. The comics industry has and continues to suffer from a lack of female creators- thus, female characters are often both written and drawn by men, often leading to the character catering to the male gaze. Our panelists unpackage the intent behind the characters, as well as the actions taken by the characters themselves, to see just what makes a depiction of sex, “feminist.” They unpackage how real world attitudes about sex culture, such as the double standard that exists between men and women regarding promiscuity, and how they function in the real world.

In addition to this, our panelists explore the world of fetishism and erotic comics before moving on to a discussion about consent and rape in terms of a handful of comics, including NIGHTWING and KAIJUMAX. Going further, the panelists discuss whether or not rape should be present in comics at all, and the use of trigger warnings.

HEAR: Lots of SAGA in this podcast! Want more? Listen to Jamie host an entire podcast on SAGA alone!

With a reading list comprised of superhero and non-cape comics, this podcast was so intense, and had so many puns, that it couldn’t be contained in just one segment, so stay tuned for part two!

For your convenience, this podcast is also available on iTunes, SoundCloud, Spreaker, iHeartRadio, and Stitcher!

Reviews: Back to the Future Citizen Brown #1, Penny Dreadful #1, Satellite Falling #1

Melissa Dowell joins Jimmy in studio for this solemn remembrance of the legendary Darwyn Cooke. They chat about his legacy and some of their favorite works. Jimmy was lucky enough to have known Darwyn over the years (see previous post on CNI website) having interviewed him a few times and hung out at various comic shows. The comic world lost a great one but his work will live on and you must check it out if you haven’t. Producer Joe also helped put together a compilation of the 3 interviews that CNI did with Darwyn over the years and will release it later this week. Still great talks and Darwyn gives great insight into his work. News includes: DC Comics gets a new logo (again), Agent Carter and The Muppets are officially cancelled, Supergirl moves to The CW for season 2, Disney Tsum Tsum plush toys are coming to Marvel comics, an X-Force film is being developed, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn will get a spin-off movie, San Diego Comic Con may be creating a special Comic Con awards show, New York Comic Con will require fan verification for all attendees and more!
