I always go to my local comics shop looking for a great story! This week, during episode 213, I talk with Brahm Revel, creator of a series of graphic novels from Oni Press called Guerillas, which is an all-time favorite of mine! The third volume is scheduled for release in May, so I appreciated the chance to discuss these books with Brahm, including where the idea for this series came from, who the characters are, and what we can expect from the third book. You’ll also want to listen because Brahm has a special announcement about the future of Guerillas, one that, if you’re a fan like me, you won’t want to miss! Be sure to listen to this great interview about a terrific comic you should be reading if you haven’t picked it up already! Really!
Remember David and Goliath? (Hint: Bible, 1 Samuel, ch 17!) The original story decidedly takes David’s side, but what’s Goliath’s story? Tom Gauld has recently released a graphic novel called Goliath, told from this alleged villain’s point of view. Tim and Mulele review. (Spoiler alert: Watch out for that rock!)
When we last touched base with Matt Silady, he was teaching at California College of the Arts, in the San Francisco Bay area. Well, he’s recently been involved in developing CCA’s new Master of Fine Arts in Comics, and has been appointed Chair of the program. Tim talks to Matt about developing the program, being locked in a jail cell for your art, and much more.
I CAN HAS DA 80 MINITS U STOLEZ FROM MUH LIFES? This week on Gutter Trash, we “review” the Zellner Bros. movie Goliath. Review is a strong word. Slag it is more in the ballpark. Jason and I play “What’s Your Ailment?”, debate porn at convenient stores, and express our love of cats (kitties!).
