We’re back with Black Panther review! And Comics talk! Ian, Brent, Brandon, and Donovan return! Listen to how Brent and Brandon take on Donovan in an epic clash over how T’challa has nothing to do! Did T’challa lose both waterfall fights? Find out, on Comic Timing!
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 stockMotor 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!
There’s a whole lot to cover this episode! Ian and Brent are joined by long-time friends of the show, Donovan Morgan Grant of the The Comic Book Film Revue Podcast, and Chris Johnson, talk Netflix’s Daredevil series, with SPOILERS abound. We talk about the plot, characters, setting, and even his horns. From there, conversation meanders to Gerry Conway‘s issues with DC Comics and creator rights in general, followed by some talk about the first few weeks of DC’s Convergence. Oh, and a little bit of Megacon and MoCCA Fest reactions. Plenty of talk to go around, and even a DeFalco bomb or two for old time’s sake.
