Melissa Dowell joins Jimmy in studio for this solemn remembrance of the legendary Darwyn Cooke. They chat about his legacy and some of their favorite works. Jimmy was lucky enough to have known Darwyn over the years (see previous post on CNI website) having interviewed him a few times and hung out at various comic shows. The comic world lost a great one but his work will live on and you must check it out if you haven’t. Producer Joe also helped put together a compilation of the 3 interviews that CNI did with Darwyn over the years and will release it later this week. Still great talks and Darwyn gives great insight into his work. News includes: DC Comics gets a new logo (again), Agent Carter and The Muppets are officially cancelled, Supergirl moves to The CW for season 2, Disney Tsum Tsum plush toys are coming to Marvel comics, an X-Force film is being developed, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn will get a spin-off movie, San Diego Comic Con may be creating a special Comic Con awards show, New York Comic Con will require fan verification for all attendees and more!

Thanks for listening!

Tune in later this week for some special podcasts! First up on Friday is a lunch interview with Becky Cloonan (By Chance or Providence, Batman) and Renee Nault (Witchling). Started out as just a recap and turned into a wonderful conversation about self publishing, advice for tabling at a show, and some of their upcoming projects. Then on Sunday, we’ll release the spotlight panel that Jimmy moderated with German cartoonist Reinhard Kleist (The Boxer, Cash: I See A Darkness). He’s a talented, smart and funny man with a great career. Hear them discuss it all! 

Then come back next week for even more TCAF interviews with Jesse Lonergan (All Star), Eric Kim (Nitro Battlers), Box Brown (Andre the Giant), Lianne Sentar/Rebecca Scoble (Sparkler Monthly) and the Sports vs Comics panel that Jimmy moderated. 

Comics Alternative Podcast Episode 70: Reviews of Slayground, The Saviors #1, and The Midas Flesh #1

“It’s like Invasion of the Body Snatchers…but with more weed.”

Slayground1This week on The Comics Alternative, Andy and Derek review three recent works. They begin with Darwyn Cooke’s Richard Stark’s Parker: Slayground, from IDW Publishing. This is the fourth of Cooke’s comics adaptation of the Parker crime/heist novels from acclaimed writer Donald Westlake (AKA, Richard Stark). The Two Guys compare Slayground to the three other works Cooke has previously released: The Hunter (2009), The Outfit (2010), and Slayground2The Score (2012). They note that while they like this graphic novel, and find Cooke’s artwork (as always) truly outstanding, they nonetheless feel that the book is a little slim, especially when compared to the earlier works. At the same time, the book also includes a reprint of the 11-page story “The 7eventh,” originally appearing in Richard Stark’s Parker: The Martini Edition (2011). What with IDW’s recent announcement that they’re going to be publishing Westlake’s original Parker novels, illustrated by Darwyn Cooke, and the promise of another Cooke adaptation of one of those novels, this is an exciting time to be reading the Parker narratives.

SaviorsNext, the Two Guys with PhDs discuss two new #1 issues: James Robinson and J. Bone’s The Saviors (Image Comics) and The Midas Flesh (BOOM! Studios), written by Ryan North with art by Braden Lamb and Shelli Paroline. Their discussions of these two recent comic books are complementary, and at times provide illustrations of contrast. The Saviors gets going with an Invasion of the Body Snatchers and horror kind of feel — weird creatures of some sort apparently infiltrate a small Southwestern community and pose as respected locals — MidasFleshis told from the perspective of a pothead, and ends with a cliffhanger…literally! The Midas Flesh, which will be an 8-issue miniseries, juxtaposes two different stories, one a sci-fi quest taking place in an apocalyptic (?) future and the other alluding to Greek mythology set in some distant past. What makes this title especially notable is that it’s the first for the publisher’s BOOM! Box imprint, and the guys still aren’t sure how BOOM! will be defining that imprint. Both of these new #1s leave the guys, to greater or lesser degrees, anticipating future issues and looking forward to how their stories unfold.

Alternate Reality – Episode #304

Someone has angered the gods! That’s the only possible explanation as the Alternate Reality crew goes about giving awesome comic book reviews in the middle of a tempest of unimaginable might. It’s as if Thor himself is attempting to break our door down as Jon pontificates about the wondrous beauty of Darwyn Cooke’s adaptation of the Richard Stark Parker story: The Man with the Getaway Face. Charlie tells us why REBELS is worthy of our comic book dime and Chris fully explain the X-Men universe to us in his Lightning Round review of X-Men Second Coming #2 (hint: Hope isn’t Jean,…just saying). If we survive the tumultuous storm outside then this should be an awesome episode.

Enjoy!

F BombCast 46: Charlie is a Lonely Cougar

FBC Shirt3We are TJ-less again folks, so you won’t get to hear the great stories about his daughter being an anti Semite. Comics are discussed as the boys learn there is ne’er a segue that they don’t like. Blackest Night and Flash Re birth cause much angst towards the Untouchable DC , and the two disc Watchman is not loved by all we find out. A audio blow job is given to Darwyn Cooke’s adaptation of The hunter and the boys discuss the top Five Cougars (Defined as famous women over 40).
