Deconstructing Comics #567: Paul Gravett

Koom with Paul Gravett

At London Super Comicon last month, Koom got to sit down with Paul Gravett, a comics journalist and exhibition curator. Gravett is currently preparing the touring Asian comics show Mangasia, which will debut in Rome next month. This is a guy who’s read a lot of comics; do they all become a blur after a while? Koom asks him about avoiding burnout, the amount of progress comics have (or haven’t) made toward being accepted by the “art world”, and much more.

Wayne’s Comics Podcast #275: Ben Penrod From Awesome Con

Wayne Hall, Wayne’s Comics, Awesome Con, anime, Doctor Who, David Tennant, Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Stan Lee, Justin Jordan, Phil Lamarr, Samurai Jack, Donna Noble,

It’s a special episode of my Wayne’s Comics Podcast, so I thought for #275 we’d go where this show has never gone before – to talk with the leader of a successful comics convention! I talk with Ben Penrod from Awesome Con about that high-octane event, including how it came to be, what goes on there, and what we might expect from them in the future. He even discusses how it got that name, and why he thinks it’s perfect for the years ahead! Comics conventions are a big part of the comics experience these days, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy what he has to say! For more about Awesome Con, including details about this year’s event, go to their website here, and for more about the other conventions Ben is part of, head to this link.

Radio Free Asgard 258

This week we have a look at Stan Lee’s final regular issue of The Mighty Thor, issue #192! It’s Thor vs. Durok! At Mardi Gras! In a sterotypical South American dictatorship! Plus, Balder and Karnilla go to Mount Everest! Odin sleeps, and Durok gets a manicure between issues! We also have a look at what else was going on in comic-land that month! Nuff said!

Radio Free Asgard 257

With Loki in charge of Asgard, Thor, Balder, Sif and the Warriors Three have to fight a pair of flying hands! Odin gets sent to bed (apparently) without his supper, Loki grows really big, and everyone keeps stating the obvious! (Hey, it’s a Stan Lee comic) Plus there’s a big bald guy! Nuff said!

Radio Free Asgard 256

This week we look at The Mighty Thor #190! What happens when Death dies? Well, bugs and plants go crazy! We also hear Balder talk in his sleep (sort of), Thor shrivels, Sif whines, and Odin makes buildings wobble! In the meantime, Loki has some eeeevil plans! Don’t miss it!

Radio Free Asgard 255

RadioFreeAsgard_FB_Logo

This week it’s back to the halcyon days of yore, as we cover The Mighty Thor #189 from 1971! Hela stalks Thor… on Earth! Volstagg rides the subway! Balder renounces Odin! Firemen get old! Pretty much everyone (even Haag!) is in this issue, folks!

Deconstructing Comics #528: Lenny Schwartz: Comics and the Theatre, Act III

Co-Creator

While we’ve talked before with Austin Tichenor and John Roberson about adapting comics to the stage, we’ve never talked about (or even thought about!) adapting the lives of comics creators to that stage! But Lenny Schwartz has done it, and more than once, writing and directing “Co-Creator” (about Bill Finger and his claim to the Batman legacy) and “The Man Who Saw Snoopy” (about Charles Schulz, of course!). And he has another in the works on Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko.

This week Lenny tells Tim about writing these plays, just how much credit Bob Kane and Stan Lee may actually deserve, how Schulz used Peanuts as his diary, and much more.
