It’s post-San Diego Comic-Con week here in Episode 292 of the Wayne’s Comics Podcast! You’ll hear my interviews with many terrific DC Comics creators, all of which took place at this year’s big SDCC from July 20 through the 23rd!

It’s the Wednesday before Halloween, so it’s time once again for the Two Guys with PhDs to look at this season’s spooky, horror-filled offerings. This year, Andy and Derek discuss 10 individual titles, some of which were specifically published for Halloween 2016 and others with particular themes and release dates that nicely coincide with the holiday. They begin with four all-age anthology titles and then move on to works that, while not specifically intended as Halloween specials, capture the spirit of the season in one form or another. In total, they discuss:
On this podcast we talk about Diggle’s new helmet, the Arrow: Season 4 trailer and Force Friday. Then it’s on to comics with reviews of Plutona #1, Deadpool vs Thanos #1 and Miracleman #1. Everything old is new and reprinted. Listen in!
At last weekend’s Sumter Comic Arts Symposium, Andy sat down with Tim Seeley in front of a live con audience and talked with him about his various comics, including Grayson, Batman Eternal, Effigy, Revival, and Sundowners. Along with Ray Fawkes (not part of this interview), Tim was one of the special guests at this first-ever Sumter event, which is described on the Sumter county’s website as:
an event like no other. This fun-filled event celebrates some of the most exciting and innovative creators working in comics and graphic novels today. From colorful cosplayers, once-in-a-lifetime Q&A panels, to exhibitions highlighting comics-inspired artworks along with prized original comic art from local collectors and emerging comic artists, the Sumter Comic Arts Symposium is sure to be the highlight of the Spring season.
Doc is joined by the quietly ubiquitous Professor Ryefleur, who diverts his attention away from RhymesWithGeek.com just long enough to have a fruitful conversation about recent headlines, and even helps review some comics!
We talk Doctor Who, Milo Manara’s “Spider-Woman” #1 variant cover drawing some criticism for being too sexy, Alan Moore’s video game and energy drink, and Frank Miller’s disdain for all screen versions of Batman. THEN we review “The Fade Out” #1 by image comics, “Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland” By IDW, and Dark Horse’s new Tim Seeley joint, “Sundowners #1”. Thanks for tuning in!
PS: Contest drawing moved to next episode when Shepherd returns.
