Deconstructing Comics #455: Streetwise

Streetwise

When Kumar was in Toronto in May and met up with Koom, one topic that came up was a 2000 anthology book called Streetwise, featuring autobiographical stories by a number of well-known comics artists (including Jack Kirby, Sergio Aragones, Paul Chadwick, Joe Kubert, John Severin & Roy Thomas, Walter Simonson, Rick Veitch, and Barry Windsor-Smith). This week, with Kumar back in Australia, they chat via Skype/phone about an overlooked book that’s worth a look.

This week we have something a bit different, as we look at…erm…um… (looks around embarrassedly) Archie #648… but hey, it’s got a Simonson cover, right? So that makes it cool… really… 😉

Hooray!!! It’s episode 100!!!! Only a week late, but better late than never! We start out this time with a mini-profile of the All-Father Odin, and then we launch into our retrospective of the Walt Simonson run! (Thor #337-382) – Special thanks to all of you, who’ve helped make this show fun to do, and here’s to the next 100!

Hey Kids Vol2 15 No More Heroes 1

0d9c

It’s a thoroughly random email segment where Angela picks her sexiest Superman and names all 11 Doctor Who actors in order – kind of – before Micheal and Andrew kick off “But it’s not got super heroes in it!” season. Andrew guides the Battlestar Galactica through the choppy waters of 70’s MARVEL and Micheal picks INVINVIBLE! Which is a super hero book! Hmmn. Somebody didn’t understand the rules.

This is it, folks! This episode we wrap up the Walt Simonson era of Thor with issue #382, which also just happens to be Thor’s 300th issue! – Utgard-Loki invades Asgard, and Destroyer Thor invades Hel! Nuff said!

Radio Free Asgard 93

RadioFreeAsgard_FB_Logo

As we count down to the end of the Simonson era, we cover Thor #381, which features  some unconscious Avengers, the frost giants going down, down, down into a burning ring of fire, and the shiniest (and arguably most bad-ass) incarnation of Thor EVER! We also welcome our listeners over from 1000 Mikes radio, I weigh in on the ‘weight of Thor’s hammer’ discussion, and then we have a surprise comment from none other than Walt Simonson himself!

 

Radio Free Asgard 92

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I tangent a little bit about Disney’s “John Carter” movie, and some thoughts on why I think it didn’t do well. Then we review Thor #380 (the all splash-page issue!) where our hero, faces off in EPIC battle against that eeeeevil tree-murdering Jormungand… the Midgard Serpent!!
