Jimmy was at San Diego Comic Con and all we got was this lousy t-shirt! It was a crazy busy time and he covered a ton of press rooms from Orphan Black to Supergirl to The Walking Dead. He also had a chance to do some 1:1s. You’ll hear him chat with the awesome Raina Telgemeier about her upcoming graphic novel, Ghosts, as well as her past work. Jimmy talked to Jeffrey Brown about the first book in his new series Lucy and Andy Neanderthal. He also talked to old buddy John Layman about the Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens comic he’s writing as well as wrapping up his big hit Chew. And finally, you can sit in on Jimmy’s annual therapy session…uh…interview with psychologist friend Dr. Andrea Letamendi. They talk about the psychology of some recent superhero films and more! No news or reviews or Top 3 in this episode as he’s still recovering from it all. But you get a quick recap with some highlights!

Over the next few weeks, there wont be a regular format show. You’ll get a lot of special episodes covering the press rooms for Arrow, Animaniacs, Agents of SHIELD, The, Flash, Gotham, Supergirl, The Walking Dead, iZombie, Justice League: Action, The Powerpuff Girls, We Bare Bears, Teen Titans Go, Legends of Tomorrow, Orphan Black, Rick and Morty, Riverdale, Steven Universe, and Wynonna Earp. Special thanks to Kelly Bedard of My Entertainment World for partnering up and covering some of the rooms that Jimmy couldn’t cover.

Deconstructing Comics #438: John Layman gives us something to Chew on

PoyoAs John Layman and Rob Guillory’s Chew passes the 3/4 point, major characters (including badass galline fan favorites) get maimed and even killed — yet the story somehow retains a lighthearted tone! This week, John Layman (who’s also writing Cyclops for Marvel) talks with Tim about nonsequential storytelling, the one thing Rob Guillory can’t draw, Tiger Beat posters of Robert Kirkman, and much more.

Deconstructing Comics #382: “Chew”: Disgusting and Delightful

chew_02Is there any other book quite like Chew? So minutely plotted by John Layman, so compellingly rendered by Rob Guillory, so disgusting (blood, vomit, cannibalism) and yet so much fun (mock-scientific names for the various types of food-based powers, wacky character names, the sheer volume of stuff packed into each issue… and of course, the world’s most badass rooster).

Ryan Haupt (from the Science…Sort Of podcast) is back to help Tim wade through the icky loveliness that is Chew.
