At the International Comics Festival in November, Tim picked up by A Cat Named Tim and Other Stories . It’s a whimsical book aimed at kids that plays with several devices that only work in comics. It’s also another example of the convergence of comics and children’s picture books that we noted on this podcast years back with John Martz Mo Willems.
This week Tim talks with John about this convergence, as well as
the challenges of making material aimed at kids, inspiration from Jacques Tati and Charles Addams, storyboarding, , and, oh yeah, Destination X Popeye loops!

You know that feeling when you love an artist’s work, but then you get their next one, and feel like… ehh, the magic’s gone? Tim was afraid that would be his reaction to Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Seconds but, as he discusses with Cassey this week, his fears were completely misplaced!

L. Frank Baum’s classic children’s story The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was published 109 years ago and still inspires attempts to adapt it to other media. While the 1939 MGM movie tends to define the story in the minds of many, subsequent adaptations do stick closer to the original book than to the movie, including the two we discuss this week: a French version adapted by David Chauvel and Enrique Fernandez (published in English by Image), and Marvel’s recent version, adapted by Eric Shanower and Skottie Young.
, a published children’s book author in his own right, joins Tim in comparing the two adaptations, as well as discussing Rashad Doucet Yuko Osada‘s “Toto: The Wonderful Adventure” and, uh, “ sexy Dorothys“.
