Deconstructing Comics #446: Tom Spurgeon

Tom SpurgeonOur frequent guest Tom Spurgeon this time sits for an interview with Tim, discussing his childhood interest in comics; his lousy pre-Comics Journal job & how he got into TCJ; the Top 100 comics of the 20th Century issue (and why nothing by Dave Sim made the list); his new job, organizing an annual comics festival with the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum; the controversy over a certain recent Batgirl cover; and more.

Arc Reactions – 25 – Quiver

Dylan and John tackle another Kevin Smith story, this time from DC comics. Green Arrow – Quiver is the relaunch of the title and this story does a good job of restarting the story while still tying it to the history of the character. Dylan and I had a great time discussing the elements of this story both good and bad. Enjoy our thoughts on this story.

Two True Freaks! Episode 81 – Star Trek Monthly Monday #13

0d9c

Isn’t the saying supposed to be – “All the women want to have Kirk and all the men want to BE Kirk”? Apparently, this episode is going to prove half of that saying wrong with TWO tales of mentally ill women actually BECOMING Captain Kirk! One uses a mysterious alien technology in the original tv series episode “The Turnabout Intruder”!. The other employs ancient shape-shifting techniques to pull the ol’ switcheroo in DC Comics’ Star Trek issue #6!

And did I say that was all? Well, you are most definitely NOT excused, so sit your ass down and get comfortable for a trip below the sea to ORCA’S BOOK CLUB!!

And finally…brace yourselves and prepare your brains, dear listeners, for an EXPLOSIVE ANNOUNCEMENT! Star Trek Monthly Monday will NEVER BE THE SAME!!!! AHAHAHAHA!
