Alternate Reality – Episode 387

Alternate Reality – Episode #387

A long time ago (last week) in a galaxy far far away (Kentucky)….. Jon and Charlie sat down to discuss the newest outing from the, now Disney owned, Star Wars franchise; “Solo: A Star Wars Story”.

Both Jon and Charlie had things they liked and things they didn’t like about the movie.  High-points and low-points.  Some of those things they agreed on, others they did not.  And so they hash it all out in this quick (hour long) movie review.

Many things will be discussed such as; new actors in old roles, the look and feel of the film, charters they enjoyed and didn’t, easter eggs that relate to other existing and upcoming Star Wars films, back-splaining everything that we ever knew about these characters and how and why they got that way, weather those explanations make sense,….. so forth and so.

Also in this episode Jon and Charlie spend a good deal of time making fun of Chris Partin. We know you don’t want to miss that.

Enjoy!!!

Deconstructing Comics #589: Dorman, Mackie, and McCrea at Toronto Comicon

This week, three interviews that Koom got at Toronto Comicon, in a special two-hour episode!

Dave Dorman is best known for his Star Wars art, as well as other fantasy work, and even some Batman. Here he talks about being one of the first students at the Kubert School, and the lasting friendships he made there with other now-famous names, and about his approach to painting, including doing likenesses.

Howard Mackie entered Marvel in 1984 as an editor, and eventually became the writer on such characters as Ghost Rider, Iron Man, and Spider-Man. He talks about that transition, working with the guys who would later form Image Comics, and what he’s done since leaving Marvel.

John McCrea is best known for his work with Garth Ennis on such works as Troubled Souls, Hitman, and Section 8. What’s it like working with Garth? Why should you avoid doing work that goes against your publisher’s expectations? Why did he set out to do a different kind of comics than the type he’s seemingly best suited for?

Critiquing Comics #124: “The Adventures of Rage” and “The Big Sheep”

In this special Monday edition of Critiquing Comics, Tim and Mulele take on a couple of comics by our listeners:

First, Chris Calderon’s The Adventures of Rage drops us right into the middle of a battle. This is a time-honored approach, but is it being done well here?
Then, Andre Mateus and Rahil Mohsin’s The Big Sheep gives us funny animals in a noir setting. How does this compare with Andre’s previous submission to Critiquing Comics?
