Jimmy was unavailable to record this week so Steve Niles stepped up and we recorded a great full length show for your listening pleasure. This week we talk about:
-New York Comic Con (and cons in general)
-Creator Owned Heroes
-Frankenstein Alive, Alive!
-Criminal Macabre Vs. 30 Days of Night
-Legends of the Dark Knight
-The comic book industry
Jimmy was at Heroes Con last weekend and moderated a few panels. This particular one was with Steve Niles and Bernie Wrightson! They discussed their recent collaboration, Frankenstein Alive, Alive! This led to a lot of chatting about favorite Frankenstein movies and how old Bernie was when he saw his first one. The conversation organically flowed into lots of their other work including Swamp Thing, 30 Days of Night, and Criminal Macabre. Steve and Bernie were old neighbors and talk about their Scrabble nights where they would come up with story ideas. A great discussion with 2 amazing creators! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
Here it is folks, The Month of Horror Begins and quite frankly i think this leads to one of our greatest discussions ever in the history of our show. We talk Hammer, We talk Midnight Movie, We Talk Scream, Horror Comedy like Young Frankenstein and Ghostbusters II, American Werewolf in London is here too. And then we get into the meat of the episode with a discussion of Last House on the Left and whether or not it is actually horror. Some comics are discussed but frankly it doesn’t matter as the reason for our existence this month is Horror.
Bo and John sit down and talk about comics, then stand up and talk about comics, then jump in the hammock and talk comics before going snorkeling and talk comics. Oh, and then they talk about comics. COMICS!
