Deconstructing Comics #455: Streetwise


When Kumar was in Toronto in May and met up with Koom, one topic that came up was a 2000 anthology book called Streetwise, featuring autobiographical stories by a number of well-known comics artists (including Jack Kirby, Sergio Aragones, Paul Chadwick, Joe Kubert, John Severin & Roy Thomas, Walter Simonson, Rick Veitch, and Barry Windsor-Smith). This week, with Kumar back in Australia, they chat via Skype/phone about an overlooked book that’s worth a look.

V for Vertigo, Episode 95: Zoom In!

This show’s more comic oriented than normal. How odd. I talk a lot about the new digital comic app for the Android and one with the strangest spelled name— It’s a terrible program that needs a lot of work. You can hear me struggle with it.

A Preacher movie has been confirmed and I think I’m the only one who can see it working. I’m an optimist. Lastly, I finish the limited series of Army@Love: Generation Pwned (Rick Veitch, Gary Erskine). Why wasn’t this an ongoing especially in today’s world?
