V for Vertigo, Episode 111: One More Thing!

I’m back! I talk about the recent changes in Netflix subscriptions and how it’s not that big a deal. But people like to whine about things being taken away anyway. Also, Jackie Chan Adventures is on their stream so you should watch it. Hi-yah!

If you’re going to San Diego Comic Con, check out the Vertigo panels, and pick me up the Back to the Future exclusive. I then delve into the slice-of-life book, Daytripper (Fabio Moon, Gabriel Ba), which is not as boring as it sounds.

Deconstructing Comics #277: “Daytripper” & Mike Maihack (“Cleopatra in Space”) interview

A double-header episode this week!

First, Tim and Brandon discuss Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba‘s Daytripper. No, it’s not a time travel story (is it a story at all?); it’s a reflection on life and death. Is it fantastic, or trite? Depends on your point of view…

Then, Tim talks to Mike Maihack, the talented creator behind Cleopatra in Space, about motion lines, Web comics as a business, and more.

Burnt Weiners Episode 042 1 Month 2 Live #2

Weed is gone . . . and all the Weiners make frowny faces. On the bright side, they are just an audio podcast, so you don’t have to see their sad (and ugly) mugs, just hear their grating voices! They chose to use those voices to talk about the September Marvel series of 1 Month 2 Live! What did they think? I forgot, you better check it out and find out for yourself.

The Weiners are joined by the lead singer of Beneath the Surface as Steege talks about the book Zero History and playing some Diablo 2. Bo can’t find the words to describe Wolverine #1 (Marvel), where Logan finds himself in hell, but then won’t shut up about The Tick(New England)! John is excited about Lucid (Archaia), Weird War Tales (DC), the wrap up of Daytripper (Vertigo) and Last Days of American Crime (Radical)!
