It’s landmark Episode 300 of the Wayne’s Comics Podcast! To celebrate, I’m sharing the great interviews I recorded at this year’s New York Comic Con with many great DC Comics creators, all of which took place from October 4 through the 7th! You’ll hear my chat with Marguerite Bennett from Batwoman and DC’s Bombshells followed by my interview with Flintstones creator Mark Russell. After that is Tim Seeley discussing Green Lanterns, Gail Simone from Wonder Woman/Conan, and Cecil Castellucci, who scripts Shade the Changing Girl, followed by James Tynion IV, who talks about Detective Comics and his new series working with Jim Lee. Next up is legendary creator Neal Adams and a writer new to the show: Ray Fawkes, who is launching a revisited Ragman, and then there’s a brief chat with Steve Orlando about Supergirl. Things wrap up with John Romita, Jr., talking about his upcoming projects with Frank Miller and Superman, among other things! Please note that I did have some slight technical trouble, so you’ll hear a crackle or two, but not often! As always, special thanks to Charlotte Sandler from BH Impact and the folks at DC Comics’ publicity! You’ll find the sequence and times you can hear each interview during the podcast below:

Have you discovered AfterShock Comics yet? I think this new comics company will send shockwaves through the industry as they make some of the best comics on the stands today!
During Episode 210, the first of 2016, I talk with Mike Marts, AfterShock’s Editor in Chief who gets us all caught up on how the company came to be, what books they have available and what is coming in the months ahead! You probably recognize Mike’s name from his stints in charge of Batman, Guardians of the Galaxy and other famous franchises. He’s overseeing great new titles, including Replica, InSEXts, SuperZero, Dreaming Eagles, American Monster, Strayer and Second Sight, bringing a lot of high-quality storytelling to your local comics shop! You can find out more about this groundbreaking company at their website at this link! He’s got a lot to say about the industry as well, so I’m sure you’re going to want to hear what he has to say!
It’s our Best of 2015! Jimmy sits down with The Beat’s Heidi MacDonald and good pal Jon Hoche to go over their 2015 favorites in comic books, TV and film. They didn’t read or watch everything released that year, so it’s just the Best of what they did read/watch. Fun discussions on great comics, their creators, TV shows, films, actors and more. What were your favorites last year? Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love! Also, get a hold of us!
Denver Comiccon 2015 was amazing. Dylan and John were able to interview 8 writers and artists for DC comics as well as 2 bands that were at the convention. We had so many interviews that we had to breakup this coverage into 2 episodes. In this episode, Dylan and John also talk about their overall experience at the convention including cosplay, people they met, and the panels they were able to attend.
