This week is a great episode because I get to interview Eric Shanower, a writer/artist who has been creating some of the most literate comics out today! We start out talking about his fanciful Marvel comics based on the Oz novels, then we move into his Image comic Age of Bronze, which is a great story that Eric both writes and draws! Be sure to get to your local comics shop this week when the Emerald City of Oz hardcover collection arrives and pick it up – it’s a terrific read!
Be back next week for my interview with Brian Joines from Krampus!
To surprise all of you looking at the comic podcast network, We actually start the show talking about comics. Fraction’s Thor and Glass’s Thor are discussed as is Neil Diamond, as he should always be. X Men and Vampires are like Peanut Butter and Chocolate, and Fool me once shame on you Fool me seven times Same on me, Try it one last time, and you get Gold, IN his eighth attempt to try something by Rick Remender, Kevin is in love with Uncanny X-Force. The Khunds are coming, The Khunds are coming, Better get your tampons and pads ready. REBELS is talked about as is the New Freedom Fighters. and SLGs Royal Historian of OZ is talked about. Then the Horror, oh the Horror. Is Nightmare the Elm Street a slasher? We say no. Two quick insta fives are completed with best and Worst Horror Sequels.
L. Frank Baum’s classic children’s story The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was published 109 years ago and still inspires attempts to adapt it to other media. While the 1939 MGM movie tends to define the story in the minds of many, subsequent adaptations do stick closer to the original book than to the movie, including the two we discuss this week: a French version adapted by David Chauvel and Enrique Fernandez (published in English by Image), and Marvel’s recent version, adapted by Eric Shanower and Skottie Young.
Rashad Doucet, a published children’s book author in his own right, joins Tim in comparing the two adaptations, as well as discussing Yuko Osada‘s “Toto: The Wonderful Adventure” and, uh, “sexy Dorothys“.
