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.

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.
Dylan and John discuss Emerald City Comicon 2017 and share their experiences with the event. We talk about panels we saw, people we chatted with, and what Reed Pop is doing well and where we could see some improvement.
Our next podcast will be Logan (film) on March 19th.
We would like to thank Packie Wambaugh for recording our intro and outro music for us.
We look forward to hearing from you.

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!
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.
This week the guys review Marvel’s Luke Cage. Marvel’s latest Netflix series hits it out of the park again. So sit back and enjoy the guys journey into Harlem and talk Luke Cage, enjoy! Be warned thier are spoilers ahead.
