On this interview show, Gwen and Derek have the pleasure of talking with Howard Shapiro. The latest book in his Forever Friends Series, Hockey Karma, was just released last week from the Animal Media Group. The two talk with their guest about the series as a whole — including the two previous graphic novels The Stereotypical Freaks (2013) and The Hockey Saint (2014) — but specifically focus on the most recent work. Howard discusses the role that music plays in his books, which in many ways goes hand-in-hand with the premise of most of this narratives: hockey. He explains that while Hockey Karma (and The Hockey Saint) is centered on the sport, its themes transcend the ice rink. The Forever Friends Series is all about the struggles of growing up and finding your place, appropriate reading for young readers who will empathize with the books’ protagonists.

Deconstructing Comics #473: Matt Seneca on sports, hate, and religion

Matt Seneca from AffectedYou may have heard Matt Seneca on the podcast Comic Books are Burning in Hell (and, hey, he was on our show once, in the persona of a mild mannered comics shop manager!), but he’s also a comics creator in his own right. His comics are deep, dark, and very honest in expressing his opinions. This week he talks with Tim about the lack of sports in American comics, why he needs to feel hate for something to make a good comic, and more.

Deconstructing Comics #437: “Real” is a slam dunk

real_coverSports have rarely been subject matter for comics in the US; perhaps comics’ inherent static-ness has seemed antithetical to an activity with so much movement. But Japan has seen comics about various sports, and some of them have been quite popular, even iconic.

Takehiko Inoue’s Real is not only about basketball, but about physical handicaps, relationships, and more. Kumar and Ilango find a whole lot to like about it — including the satisfying ways in which it translates sports action to the comics page.

V for Vertigo, Episode 82: Musical Madness!

If you hate hearing me sing, this episode ISN’T for you. I’m more loopy than normal and all over the place. I blame Daylight Savings. I talk poker, Halloween, sports and of course The Walking Dead because everybody else is.

There’s a bit of sad news this week in yet another Vertigo cancellation. It’s actually a bit of a surprised in which title it is. Lastly, I do a bad job of covering Y: The Last Man–One Small Step (Brian K. Vaughn, Pia Guerra).
