ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 70: THE WALKING DEAD – Negan to Now

The brilliant podcast team of Justin Alba, Dennis Mui, Pete Imbesi, Emily Coleman, and Corey Spanner assembled to discuss and analyze the last fifty issues of THE WALKING DEAD. Fans of the comic will know instantly what happened, and the earth-shattering events that took place over those issues. Fans of the show will be happy to know the issues discussed were all about Negan, the latest villain on THE WALKING DEAD television show.

As issue #100 dropped, the trajectory of the book changed. Negan, nefarious and enigmatic, brutally murders one of the key characters of the book. From then on, an all-out war erupts between Rick Grime’s group of survivors and “The Saviors,” led by the baseball-bat wielding Negan.

LISTEN: Want to hear about another comic book turned movie? Our podcast on the X-Men spinoff, NEW MUTANTS, goes from issues #1 – #100 of the original run!

Ideas of morality and leadership are debated as the team compares Negan and Rick and ask themselves if they are even really that different.

In the aftermath of war, our heroes jump ahead in time three years, something the book has never done. Did it work? Did the creative team use such a huge storytelling tool to their advantage or did it fall back? The team discusses this along with other ideas of storytelling, as a book that has been going on for this long surely has a reason to keep going.

Finally, a new threat arrives and attacks Rick Grimes and our other favorites. A sadistic and radical group of rogues attack and kills many characters, and the podcast crew decides whether this is too much or too little in the wake of a villain as good as Negan.

HEAR: If you’re an Image Comics fan, listen to our all-female cast discuss MONSTRESS, a new feminist work by Marjorie Liu set in a fantasy feudal Japan!

Listeners be warned, the crew delved deep into the emotional and structural points of the book to analyze why such a simple story of survival has turned into one of the longest-running and financially successful comics on the shelves today!

Make sure to give it a listen and, as always, let us know how you feel in the comments below.

Jimmy joined the roundtables for the hit AMC  show THE WALKING DEAD while at Comic Con. You’ll hear from Michael Cudlitz, Danai Gurui, Sonequa Martin-Green, Lennie James, Andrew Lincoln, Melissa McBride, Greg Nicotero, Norman Reedus, Chandler Riggs, Steven Yuen, Scott Gimple (Showrunner), Gale Ann Hurd (Producer), David Alpert (Producer). The CNI mic is pointed directly at the talent so you’ll hear them the best (and that’s more important!) so apologies if the media questions are a bit muddled. I had a little fun with some questioning and you’ll hear showrunner Gimple jokingly call me out on it! Reedus and Jimmy had a laugh afterwards when Jimmy reminded Reedus of the promise he made to me to throw in a Boondock Saints easter egg. But instead, they thought a Chewbacca roar might be better. Some great hints on the upcoming season! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!

Wayne’s Comics Podcast #167 With Joe Keatinge

Wayne's Comics, Wayne Hall, Joe Keatinge, Shutter, Adventures of Superman, Ultron, What If, Robert Kirkman, Walking Dead, Steve Ditko, Spider-Man, Kate Kristopher, Tech Jacket,

You’re in for a fun discussion I enjoyed with comics pro Joe Keatinge, a creative force behind the excellent Shutter and also the scripter for Robert Kirkman’s Tech Jacket, both from Image Comics.

As we were in the process of setting up this interview, Joe asked if I had read Shutter. I told him I had not, and that sent me after the series, all of which made me a big fan of this dynamic and intriguing comic. If you haven’t read the story of Kate Kristopher and her adventurous family, you can catch up quickly by picking up the first trade and the subsequent issues before the #10 arrives on Wednesday, March 11. We also discussed Tech Jacket and what it’s like to work with Mr. Kirkman, something Joe compares to working with Steve Ditko on Spider-Man. We also briefly chat about a project he completed for Marvel as well as another he did for DC Comics. Don’t miss it!


Deconstructing Comics #438: John Layman gives us something to Chew on

PoyoAs John Layman and Rob Guillory’s Chew passes the 3/4 point, major characters (including badass galline fan favorites) get maimed and even killed — yet the story somehow retains a lighthearted tone! This week, John Layman (who’s also writing Cyclops for Marvel) talks with Tim about nonsequential storytelling, the one thing Rob Guillory can’t draw, Tiger Beat posters of Robert Kirkman, and much more.
