In this episode, Tim and Mulele tackle these comics, submitted by their creators:
Craig Barstow is playing the lead in a TV show about space exploration. He faces accusations of being a drunk, and finds that the show is getting cancelled. And this is just the beginning of his precipitous fall in the first issue of The World of Tomorrow, by Giles Clarke, Kenan Halilovic, Felipe Obando, and Deron Bennett. Is this comic going in the direction its creators intended?
An overweight woman who takes photos of cats. A pair of adulterous Greek gods. A wife who is being cheated on but has secrets of her own. The cheating husband’s mistress who gets work advice from a ghost. A punk music club where… wait, why is all of this in one first issue? We have some strong words of caution for the Michael Norwitz, Enrico Carnevale, Andrea Blanco, and HdE, the creators of Possession #1.
Captain Ron Fortier and Chief Engineer Rob Davis return to the skies with a brand new episode of the Airship 27 Podcast!
This episode, they discuss their first release of 2017, Comanche Blood, updates on the Brother Bones movie (locations, casting and more!), their latest Sherlock Holmes volume on Radio Archives and more!
Plus, they spend a bulk of the episode answering listener questions before closing out the show!
Bayne: Legacy Apocalypse, from Silver Axe Comics, features an axe-wielding Morpheus-from-The-Matrix type in a post-apocalyptic California battling mutants or vampires or what-have-you. Jay Reed’s art is much more than serviceable; it’s quite nice. Chyna McCoy’s script, however… well, listen to find out what Tim and Mulele have to say about it.
Rob and Ron talk about the best Pulp Fest ever, Rob’s trip to River Con in Little Rock, their newest release, a pirate adventure, the latest on the giant anthology book and a look ahead to what titles are now in production.
As I wrap up things with Day 12 of the 12 Days of Zone 4, I reflect on the year of 2014. I discuss movies, comics and other life events that stood out to me personally throughout the year, and I look forward a bit on what’s to come in 2015.
Thank you to everyone who listened to and (hopefully) enjoyed the 12 Days of Zone 4! And thank you for all your support for Zone 4 throughout the years and going forward.
A slimy gambler goes up against the Devil, betting his soul vs. half the money in the world. Score! He’s then approached by some people who promise him a great reward if he funds their plans. He joins them, going up against (and beating) the hapless Devil repeatedly. It’s hard not to have some sympathy for the Devil when he keeps getting trounced by a slimeball. Tim and Mulele take on Ross May and Brett Wood’s Devil Dealers.
Tim Across America, part ten! The finish line of Tim’s trip is Los Angeles, home of our friend Dale Wilson, of BuyIndieComics and DWAP Productions. Dale hooks us up with Robert Roach, comics creator and Hollywood storyboarder. He fills us in on ways that storyboarding is much different from comics, and also talks about the importance of getting the details in your story right — regardless of medium.
For the Southern California edition of Ask a Retailer, a talk with Howard Chen at Legacy Comics and Cards in Glendale. Unlike most of the other Tim Across America retailers, Legacy still has plenty of manga on the shelves. But to what extent are those books flying off the shelves?
Finally, Tim and Dale are joined by Stephenny Godfrey (“Panorama”, “Two Buses”) and Richard Hamilton (“Return of the Super Pimps”, “Miserable Dastards”) to discuss the L.A. comics community and revisit a topic from the Chicago episode: should you make a comic as a step toward getting your story on film?

Tim Across America, part six! Having worked in mainstream American comics for three decades now, Dan Jurgens has seen a lot of change. The number of publishers, the type and amount of fan interaction (thanks to the Internet), the method of comics distribution, and the way the Big Two search for new talent have all changed greatly in that time. And, the Big Two now actually discourage the creation of new characters. Why? This week, Jurgens reflects on those changes — some good, some bad — in a talk with Tim.
He also discusses his work on Superman and Thor, how technology has helped film steal some of comics’ storytelling edge, and more.
Also, in the Minneapolis edition of Ask a Retailer, Tim talks to Paul Miller at Comic Book College!
AND, our new feature DCP In Touch, and a talk with Kumar and Mulele about their successful Kickstarter project!
Listener Aghori Shaivite asked us to look at his comic, Super Inc. Villians’ Edition, which explores the lives of the villians he has created for his superhero comics. Unfortunately, Tim and Mulele have identified a number of problems with the writing…
