Something new as he has her record some reviews and a Top 3 and plays them for your listening pleasure. Jimmy is worried because her reviews are far more professional and way better than his. But good news for you listeners! She gives some really great insight and does some great research for her reviews/picks. You’ll love her! Jimmy also briefly chats about that last The Walking Dead episode as well as a new poster for the upcoming Game of Thrones season. (Both have a similar theme). News includes: Marvel schools you with new web series called Marvel 101, Gravity Falls is coming to an end, Felicia Day is cast in new MST3K reboot, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will premiere on January 21 and John Carpenter is developing 4 new horror/sci-fi series.

ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 48: “Interns Take Over!” — BITCH PLANET

It’s not everyday that you get to participate in one of your first ever podcasts when you have been loving podcasts for years AND you get to do it on one of your favorite comic books ever written. So if I sound a little excited chock it all up to that, but without further ado this is the BITCH PLANET podcast which stars me, Jamie Rice, and my fellow bitches Brian Delpozo and Kathy Wisneski. Written by Kelly Sue DeConnick with art by the amazing Valentine De Landro, BITCH PLANET is a story set in the not so distant future about a group of women that have been sent anyway to the Auxiliary Compliance Outpost a.k.a. Bitch Planet for offenses that range from obesity to non-compliancy.

LISTEN: Want to hear more about comic book works of feminist art/literature? Check out our podcast on Y, THE LAST MAN by Brian K. Vaughan

I think it’s pretty clear from that description what exactly BITCH PLANET is in dialogue with, but if you have an ever growing desire to listen to people talk about the metaphorical resonances of science fiction and what exactly it means to be an angry feminist than this certainly the podcast for you. With only four issues printed (but five is coming very soon!), BITCH PLANET has already managed to take note of many different tropes, and as my favorite Bitch Brian dutifully noted it doesn’t make a joke of a trope, but instead takes a trope and makes it feel real (I know it sounds complicated, but if you listen to the podcast I know it will be more clear).

HEAR: Comics We’re Thankful For: Y, THE LAST MAN and BLANKETS

We also got a chance to talk about what makes Valentine De Landro’s art simultaneously smartly retro and real, and about the ways that BITCH PLANET is a large operatic metaphor while at the same time being a completely realistic reflection of the way that women are treated by men and the way women treat each other in our patriarchal society. If for some reason you have not read BITCH PLANET and are curious about whether or not there is anything there then this is a great podcast to listen to or if you read it and didn’t feel like you got anything out of it I have to say that this conversation enriched me as someone who has read the comics more than once. Basically, it’s worth a listen and all non-compliant bitches are welcome.

The following members of the ComicsVerse family participated in this podcast episode:
Kathleen Wisneski, Jamie Rice and Brian Delpozo

Comics Alternative Episode 114: Reviews of Here, Wolf Moon #1, and Bitch Planet #1

Here and There

HereHappy Hanukkah! On this episode of The Comics Alternative, Derek and Andy review three new and exciting titles. First, they look at Richard McGuire’s Here (Pantheon) a project that actually goes back to 1989. A different, black-and-white 6-page version of the comic appeared in the first issue of Raw Vol. 2,  Art Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly’s groundbreaking comics anthology that ran from 1980 until 1991. The new book doesn’t include or build directly off of that original comic, but it does use the design and concept as a springboard into the larger, more ambitious project. Everything that takes place in this story — and the guys use the word of “story” loosely, here — is anchored in one physical space, the corner of a room. What McGuire does is to give us a history of that particular space, revealing events that took place in that area over a span of centuries. The “movement” within the narrative is strictly temporal, reaching back into the prehistoric past (the earliest year being 3,000, 500, 000 BCE) and pushing into a speculative future (the year 22,175). McGuire accomplishes this through an arrangement of two-page spreads, inlaid or nested panels, and precise placements of images that, taken together, provide visual and even thematic coherence. Indeed, it seems as if events across time resonate and interact. WolfMoonThis is the kind of book that is difficult to appreciate fully outside of the actual reading process, and it’s one that requires diligent and repeated efforts, each of which will be richly rewarded.

After their involved discussion of Here — and the Two Guys spend the better part of this episode on McGuire’s work — Andy and Derek look at two new #1 issues. The first is Wolf Moon, written by Cullen Bunn and with art by Jeremy Haun (Vertigo). This is the first of a 6-issue miniseries based on the werewolf myth. However, Bunn gives his supernatural retelling a unique spin, creating a lycanthrope narrative where physical transformation isn’t the only effects of a full moon. Haun’s art is appropriately dark, ill-defined in places, and violent. There’s a lot of blood in this first issue, and Wolf Moon promises to be a title that isn’t for the squeamish. After that, the guys turn to the new comic from Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine de Landro, Bitch Planet (Image). Both BitchPlanetDerek and Andy like this first issue and plan on continuing to read the series, but they nonetheless disagree as to the impact or accomplishments of this inaugural installment. Andy feels that this is a successful #1 that does everything it’s supposed to do. In fact, this may be one of his favorite single issues of the year. However, Derek feels that this is a story that will read better in trade, in that the first issue seemed incomplete and required more story space for effective immersion. There needs to be more there there. What’s more, he felt that Danielle Henderson’s mini-essay at the end of the issue was unnecessary and potentially undermined the impact of the story itself. While Andy felt that this was a useful supplement that helped to set a critical or thematic framework — and it does — Derek sees the essay as an expository exercise that tells (not shows) the reader what the series is all about. Instead, he feels that DeConnick and de Landro’s story should speak for itself, especially in this first issue. (Although Henderson’s essay would make a nice supplement to a future collected edition.) Still, both guys agree that this is an intriguing title that both will continue reading…if  not monthly, then in trade.

Arc Reactions Podcast – S08 – Emerald City Comicon 2014 Recap

Emerald City Comicon 2014 is over. Dylan and I had a great time there wearing our podcast shirts (thanks to Leigh Newman). We talked to so many people and saw some great panels and interviews.

ECCC also marks our 1 year anniversary of working on the show. It was last year at the con that Dylan and I discussed Avengers Vs. X-men and decided that we wanted to do a podcast where we record our discussions about comic book story arcs.

Also, this is our first “live” episode. We recorded this earlier this evening after getting home from the show. We had a great time and look forward to going again next year.
