ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 79: SAGA by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

SAGA has been described as STAR WARS meets GAME OF THRONES, which is a pretty amazing comparison considering those are two of the biggest franchises of the last 50 years–Thank goodness they didn’t put LORD OF THE RINGS in there too. However, I have to say that the story of Alana and Marko’s struggle to protect their forbidden child and love as they run across the galaxy is more than up to the challenge.

Told from the future in voiceover by Alana and Marko’s child Hazel, SAGA is the story of Alana and Marko’s struggle to protect their daughter from a world that wants to rip them apart. Why do they want to rip them apart? Because Alana is from a Landfall, a planet where the people have wings, and Marko is from Wreath, a moon of Landfall where the people have horns. These two people have been at war since anyone can remember. So long that the rest of the universe has even gotten involved and taken sides.

There are more creatures than I can name in this short post, but SAGA is more than just fantastical and beautiful creatures rendered gorgeously by Fiona Staples. SAGA is an epic story about the ways that cultures and prejudices clash. It is a story about the lengths that people will go to to protect their families. It is a story about pregnancy and the unexpected and pointless nature of death. SAGA is a story about life itself and what it truly means to live. In this podcast with guests Pete Imbesi, Matthew Murphy, Brad Sloan, and Phil Casey we discuss all this and more. So sit back and relax while ComicsVerse discusses Brian K. Vaughan’s and Fiona Staples’ epic space opera, SAGA.

Comics Alternative, Episode 145: Reviews of We Stand on Guard #1, Will Eisner’s The Spirit #1, Archie #1, and Leisure

Listen to the podcast!

Electric Boogaloo

July21ShowCovers

This week on the podcast, the Two Guys with PhDs take a close look at a few #1 issues and one minicomic series. However, before they get into the nitty gritty of their reviews, they share some of the listener mail and attention they’ve been receiving — including a very cool call-out from the Kyle and Drew at Comics for Fun and Profit — and then go into some news out of SDCC. In particular, they discuss this year’s Eisner Award winners, most of which the WSOG1guys are familiar with and/or had expected (or hoped) to win. However, there were some surprises as well as some disappointments in this year’s Eisners, but such is the game of awards systems such as this. After highlighting a little more news out of San Diego — e.g., the announcement of new Vertigo titles, the return of Lady Killer, Fantagraphics to publish the next Kramers Ergot — Andy and Derek plunge into the titles that they’re discussing this week. First, they look at Brian K. Vaughan and Steve Skroce’s We Stand on Guard #1 (Image Comics). This is one of the most anticipated new series of the year, and the guys waste no time in underscoring not only BKV’s storytelling abilities, but Skroce’s meticulous art. Next, they look at the latest attempt to bring The Spirit back to reading audiences. With Will Eisner’s The Spirit #1 (Dynamite Entertainment), Matt Wagner and Dan Schkade capture not only the spirit — bad pun intended — of the original, but also introduce Eisner’s crime-fighting world in such a way that brand new readers can easily get on board, even without much knowledge of the original. The same can be said of Mark Waid and Fiona Staples’s Archie #1 (Archie Comics). ComrieFHBThe creators’ take on the comics icon appears both fresh and reverential, making this new series accessible, yet in a familiar way. Still, the guys wonder who exactly the audience might be — or might end up being — for these new spins on Archie Andrews and Denny Colt. Finally, Derek and Andy turn to a minicomic series from Tim Comrie, Leisure. This is an autobiographical, very personal, series with three issues so far. Comrie lays bare both his pleasures and his turmoils, and in a genuine manner that never comes across as calculated or discomforting. The guys also bring in a discussion of Comrie’s other series (along with Mike Heneghan), Five Hour Comics, and compare its style and tone to Leisure. If you’re not familiar with Tim Comrie’s work, then now is the time to check it out!

Comics Alternative Interviews: Brian K. Vaughan

BKV Is in the House

BKVThe guys are pleased to have on their podcast the great Brian K. Vaughan. And for this conversation, Derek and Andy K. are joined by Andy Wolverton, who actually secured this interview for the show through his library connections. The guys begin by asking Brian about his thematic ambitions in Saga, and the discussion evolves from there. Over the course of their conversation, they ask their guest about the origins of the award-winning series, his melding of the sci-fi and fantasy genres, the challenges of juggling more than one ongoing title at a time, the stories behind the artists he chooses to work with, the pay-what-you-will philosophy behind The Private Eye, the future of Panel Syndicate, his loyal (and enthusiastic) fan base, the ever-evolving nature of comic conventions, and (as much as Brian can reveal) his new series that were recently announced at the Image Expo. Along the way they discuss not only his current titles, but also Brian’s ever-popular Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina, Swamp Thing, The Runaways, and The Pride of Baghdad. This is an exciting interview for the guys, and it’s a sign of the many great guests they will have on The Comics Alternative in the coming year.
