Comics Alternative, On Location: Winging It at Collected Comics and Games

Listen to the podcast!

Movie Free


Once again, Derek is back at  his local comics shop, Collected Comics and Games in Plano, TX, to talk with customers and shop employees about comics culture. This month the topic was supposed to be summer movies and comics, with people chiming in on the recent releases of Avengers: Age of Ultron and Mad Max: Fury Road, as well as  the upcoming Ant-Man and Fantastic Four. However, there was only one of the on-location regulars who showed up this month, Shea Hennum, and much like Derek, he wasn’t informed enough about the summer movies to help carry the conversation. So instead, Derek and Shea talked about a variety of other comics-related topics. On this show, they cover a broad and casual range, discussing the latest issue of Adrian Tomine’s Optic Nerve and the upcoming release of Killing and Dying, the recent collected Angry Youth Comix and the “appropriateness” of Johnny Ryan’s art, potential problems in publishing a webcomic into book form, Jon Morris’s new book The League of Regrettable Superheroes, the upcoming series wrap-up of Ales Kot’s Zero, the current state of comics criticism/journalism, and Shea’s uncanny ability to alienate creators through his own writing. So even though the guys had to wing it for this month’s topic, it all turned out OK. Perhaps they’ll hold over the summer movies theme for July. Tune in next month, dear listener, and find out!

Comic Timing – Episode 152


According to Brent, this episode is titled, “The Back-Up Plan: The All Bitching Episode.” Although we do a lot more than just bitch, I promise. Brent and I are joined by Mr. Raphael Soohoo as we discuss The Flash’s new TV outfit, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the season so far (including the Sif episode), The Lego Movie, Brent’s review of Justice League: War, the official cancellation of Beware The Batman!, the announcement of the Arkham Knight game, my thoughts on Fables: The Worlf Among Us, and plenty more. We also review some comics, including Forever Evil #6, Superman/Wonder Woman #6 both She-Hulk and Ms. Marvel #1, Secret Avengers, Image Comics’ Zero and some other stuff here and there.

As a warning, there was a chirping noise that kept recurring throughout the recording. We couldn’t trace the source, so it’s there throughout. I did my best to get rid of it whenever possible, but it’s still there occasionally. Shouldn’t be too loud or annoying, I swear! Also, next week we should be joined by Sean and Jim of Raging Bullets, as due to power outages we had to push their episode back a week. So barring any other weird weather, it shall be done!
