    Comic Timing Extra Point – Episode 12: Fan Films and Power Rangers

    HipHopKido

    Earlier this week, producer Adi Shankar and director Joseph Kahn put their 15 minute fan film Power/Rangers on the web. Three days later, the film has been taken off of both YouTube and Vimeo due to copyright claims by Saban Brands and its lawyers. You can still find the movie on Facebook, of which Shankar thanks for not bending to the copyright claim.

    Ian is joined by The Black Box’s Shawn Pryor and Ignorant BlissJulian Lytle for this Extra Point to discuss the star-studded short in full (James Van Der Beek and Katee Sackhoff, seriously!), what some of the original Rangers thought about the short, along with where we think the upcoming Mighty Morphin Power Rangers reboot may go as a film, what fan films mean to the industry as a whole, what it takes to make a mature film versus a mature content film, and a whole lot more where that came from!

    Comic Timing – Episode 160: Ethnicity and Race In Comics

    apokolipsnew11_

    The spiritual sequel to our Religion in Comics episode is finally here! Brent and Ian are joined by Brandon Christopher (for technically the third episode in a row if you count 159 Part A and B as two separate episodes) and Julian Lytle to discuss ethnicity and race in comics. How have comics evolved in their portrayal of people of color over the years? What still needs to be done to improve things further? How about creators of color getting their foot in the door of a predominantly white industry? Who are some of our favorite ethnically diverse creators? Is it a good idea to take originally white characters and reintroduce them as black, Asian, or otherwise, or is legacy the way to go? We go into all of this and more here. Listen in, and enjoy. This one is an instant favorite of the crew.

    As always – we are sponsored by DCBS! That’s right! Discount Comic Book Service! All comics from major publishers like Marvel, DC, Image and Dark Horse are 40% off or more.

    Then we go all out as we discuss the “Panda Force Summer Shorts” webcomics with “Panda Force” creator Sean Causley & the Glyph Nominated artist Julian Lytle, creator of “Ants.” Get familiar as we go all out and discuss their comics, webcomics, the end of Zuda, Doctor Who Anime, the fall of radio, Rick Ross, “The Expendettes” and a few comics that we think would fly off shelves but the big two would never publish.
