This week the Two Guys with PhDs Talking about Comics are excited to have as their guest creator extraordinaire, Matt Fraction. They talk with Matt specifically about his new series through Image Comics, Satellite Sam(with Howard Chaykin on art) and Sex Criminals (with Chip Zdarsky), but they also take the opportunity to discuss other works of his, such as the current Hawkeye series, his Casanovacomics, and graphic novels such as The Five Fists of Science. Perhaps one of the most enlightening moments of the interview concerns issue #2 of Satellite Sam, where Matt points out that you can indeed letter the sound of “whiskey dick.” But comics aren’t all that the guys discuss. Andy, Derek, and Matt also spend a lot of time talking about
It’s a veritable smorgasbord of pop cultural fun! However, Andy comes away from the experience a changed man, wondering if his love of everything Dean Martin has all been for naught. “Nothing gold can stay, Ponyboy.”
Lincoln, The Civil War, Mark Twain, Spawn, and Ron Marz; What do these things have in common? Fuck if I know, but it made for a very entertaining and enlightening podcast. We start with some history that may or may not have been taught to you in school, the subject is a passion of both me and kevin, so please bear with us. We then lead into book censorship, which brings us to Rambo, yeah if you don’t think we have ADD than HEY WHAT IS THAT? oh right, we talk some action movies, and the spawn animated show. Batgirl helps explain the history of batman…with stick figures, and poor Ernie just wants to get away from General Glory. Ron Marz wants to shit on the people that buy his comics, Axel Alonzo acts like he was the guiding force at Vertigo. Finish it up with a little Manga and whether or not Daken hates the chicken and that is what I call podcast gold.
