Wayne’s Comics Podcast #342: SDCC 2018 Interviews – Part 3

Wayne Hall, Wayne’s Comics, Alisik, Helge Vogt, Rick Remender, Deadly Class, Image Comics, Titan Comics, goth, graveyard, school,

We wrap up our coverage of San Diego Comic Con with two great chats, if you will! First up is Helge Vogt, co-writer and artist on a fascinating book called Alisik, made available in the U.S. by Titan Comics.  We talk about the main character, her situation, her friends, and where the book might go from the first two issues! For more on the series, check out the Titan Comics online store!

Then everything wraps up with a news conference with Rick Remender, creator of Deadly Class from Image Comics! A word of warning: Mr. Remender likes what we call explicit language, so be prepared! He discusses how he’s making the upcoming Syfy show as close to the successful comic as possible, among other things! For more, check out the Syfy website!

On Location: Starting off the New Year at Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find

New Shop, New Conversations

For years The Comics Alternative has held a monthly on-location episode where one or two cohosts go into — physically or virtually — one of their local comics shops and talk with customers and employees about the comics that their reading, what they’re excited about and looking forward to, and what grumblings they may have in terms of comics culture. The last such episode was published last August, right before Derek moved to Charlotte, NC…and as things would turn out, in the final days of Valhalla Games and Comics.

But now that Derek has settled in his new environs, he heads over to Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find, his new local shop in Charlotte (at 417 Pecan Avenue), to begin once again the monthly series. So January’s show kicks things off, with Derek introducing customers and shop employees to the podcast and beginning what, we hope, will be a fun and informative monthly visit. Snowy weather hit Charlotte this week, so the ice and cold cut down on traffic in the shop over the past couple of days. But several did come in and take the time to talk on show, sharing what titles they’re currently reading and what they’re finding exciting, and frustrating, in comics and comics-related media. For example, Isaiah, coming in for his weekly comics, shares his thoughts on recent DC Rebirth storylines and the shenanigans he sees going on at Marvel. Shop employees, Karla and Eli, talk about the some of the comics that are currently or soon-to-be adapted for television — and Eli is particularly interested in the upcoming series based on Rick Remender’s Deadly Class. And shop owner Shelton Drum comes on to discuss their recent move to a new location, next week’s Charlotte Mini-Con (taking place on Saturday, Jan. 27, at the Gary Cole Center), and when we can expect to hear announcements about this summer’s HeroesCon.

A big THANK YOU to Karla and Shelton for helping to make this on-location show happen. And if you’re in the Charlotte area, be sure to come by the shop on Wednesday, February 21, for next month’s on-location recording!

ComicsVerse Episode 86: Interview with Rick Remender

After covering many of his works, such as DEADLY CLASS and UNCANNY X-FORCE, over several ComicsVerse podcasts, we’re proud to present Episode 86 of the podcast — our Rick Remender interview!

LISTEN: Check out our ComicsVerse podcast episode on DEADLY CLASS!

Over the course of the conversation with ComicsVerse CEO Justin Alba, Kay Honda, Matthew Murphy, and Marius Thienenkamp, Remender discussed his history and influences as a writer, his stances on the medium, the creative process, and collaborating with other artists.

LISTEN: Part 1 of our two-part podcast about UNCANNY X-FORCE!

In discussing his Marvel works, we focused on his fan favorite run on UNCANNY X-FORCE, a book that many consider a modern mutant classic. What’s the secret behind the book’s captivating moral dilemmas? How did Remender approach working with a set of characters that all share a dark side, or as Justin put it, a killer instinct, and how did he manage to give them a human side? Spoiler alert: he might not be thinking about some of the characters he wrote as enthusiastically as one would assume!

LISTEN: Our discussion about the ethics in Remender’s UNCANNY X-FORCE on the Ethics in Comics Podcast!

Of course, we didn’t miss out on discussing his numerous beloved works for Image. Be it LOW, TOKYO GHOST or DEADLY CLASS: themes like narcissism, fatherhood, and a fear of the future seemed to reoccur in his books, so during our Rick Remender interview, we discussed what these elements meant to him personally.

In talking about these works, Remender not only gave us amazing insight into his work ethic and creative energy but also into his personal morals and philosophy – be it as a punk-rock enthusiast or as a father. If you ever wanted to see his intimate and artistic side – this Rick Remender interview might be for you!

This podcast is also available on iTunes, Spreaker, SoundCloud, iHeartRadio, and Sticher.

Comics Alternative Podcast Episode 72: A Review of Six New Comic Book Titles

Comics for Kids with Backhoes

6-ComicsThis week Gene and Derek take a look at six new titles. They begin with a discussion of two new works from Image Comics, the first three issues of Alex + Ada (Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn) and Deadly Class #1 (Rick Remender and Wes Craig). They go into depth on both titles, especially Craig’s art in Deadly Class and the narrative pacing in Alex + Ada, which ultimately leads to a discussion on panel sequencing and story decompression. Next, they look at issues #1-3 of Letter 44, written by Charles Soule with art by Alberto Jiménez Albuquerque (Oni Press). They discuss its unique take on science fiction within the context of recent politics. From there, they turn to recent #1 issues from three other publishers: David Lapham’s Juice Squeezers (Dark Horse Comics), Bill Willingham and Sergio Fernandez DaVilla’s Legenderry (Dynamite Entertainment), and Curse from BOOM! Studies (written by Michael Moreci and Tim Daniel, with art by Riley Rossmo, Colin Lorimer). In this episode, the Two Guys with PhDs are all over the place, moving from all-age comics to Bush-era politics to licensed characters to horror titles to science fiction to steampunk to Reagan’s Morning in America. There’s a lot packed into this show…more bang for your buck!

So enjoy, won’t you?
