WMD Radio: Episode 330 – Canadian Road Rage and Comic Reviews

WMD 330Listen to Episode 330 now!

This week on WMD Radio we’ll be talking about a little thing we do differently north of the 49th parallel: “Canadian Road Rage”. Pop culture comes in many shapes and sizes, folks – and viral videos come from anywhere everywhere, so WMD Radio’s back yard is no exception. We’ll break down this local and courteous exchange of driver discontent while throwing in our usual 2 cents.

And after 2 weeks of recklessly leaving Brew and Redshirt unattended in the studio Remy is back! We’ll catch up with him while we review a few comics from our LCS, follow up on a couple of your favorite shows – heck, we might even have some stuff to give away again!

All of that plus a BIG guest announcement for next week’s Walking Dead series recap episode!

He’s also written Cancertown: An Inconvenient Tooth and Cancertown: Blasphemous Tumours, White Knuckle and other great stories. To buy his books in paper or digital editions, go to his Author Page on Amazon.com at this link! Either that or check out Markosia’s website to get your copies!

Comics Alternative Interviews: Noah Van Sciver

Listen to the podcast!


NVSportraitThe Two Guys with PhDs are glad to have on their show Noah Van Sciver, the creator behind the series Blammo as well as the recently published Saint Cole (Fantagraphics). The guys talk with Noah about the genesis of Saint Cole and how this became his follow-up graphic novel to The Hypo: The Melancholic Young Lincoln. For that matter, they’re even more curious to know why the artist chose our depressive sixteen president as his first long-form focus. While historical narratives aren’t unusual for Noah — he addresses the great 1863 Denver fire in his comic, A City of Whiskey and Fire (with Daniel Landes) — he’s quick to point out that he’s not a historically based cartoonist, as, for example, you might find in someone like Rick Geary. In fact, Noah tells Derek and Andy that he resists any kind of pigeonholing, even bristling at any attempts to place his work in the company of Robert Crumb or Chester Brown. He prefers to be a chameleon, changing up his subject matter at will, SaintColemuch like Leonard Zelig does in Zelig. And here is where the Two Guys demonstrate their characteristic talents for taking their interviewees into unlikely tangential realms. Throughout their conversation, Woody Allen becomes the topic that the guys keep returning to, especially since Noah is a big Allen fan. The creator even reveals that he’s currently working on project in the vein of Stardust Memories, a story about a successful artist who goes to a convention but feels alienated from his fans while he depressively reevaluates his life. But the conversation never evolves, or devolves, completely into a Woodyfest. There’s plenty of talk on Van Sciver’s Blammo series, his AdHouse collection Youth Is Wasted, his strips 4 Questions and Rufus Baxter, the World’s Oldest Unknown Rock Star for Westword, the Denver comics scene, his relationship with Kilgore Books and Comics, his desire to create a comic with a large ensemble cast, and his upcoming project for Fantagraphics, Fante Bukowski. So all in all, in this interview you get previews, you get insights, you get laughs, and you get a little cinematic Woody. What more could you ask for?

And you’ll find Blammo and other great comics at Kilgore Books and Comics’s website!

View from the Gutters #111 — God Hates Astronauts

We’re attending Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle this weekend, so you get the episode a little bit early. This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is God Hates Astronauts, by Ryan Browne. Initially launched as a webcomic in 2007, the series was collected reprinted by Image as God Hates Astronauts, Vol. 1. In 2014 the series was relaunched as a print series, the first collection of which has been released as Volume 2.

The series is a crude and absurd satire of superhero comics. It follows a group of heroes called the Power Persons Five through a series of inane and insane adventures, most of which revolve around petty revenge. The comic is over the top in every way imaginable both in art and story, in a way that honestly defies brief summation.

However if you are amused by concepts like King Tiger Eating a Cheeseburger (his actual full name), centaur astronauts, or the dad from Family Matters with gorilla arms, this comic might be for you.

In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated The Brave and the Bold, The Strain, Black Widow, and Sexcastle for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Black Widow, Vol. 1 & 2.

Our hosts for this episode are Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Tobiah Panshin, and Cade Reynolds.

If you are at ECCC on Saturday and would like to say hi to us, we’ll be having an informal meet-up.

Comics Alternative – Episode 128: Reviews of Tex the Lonesome Rider, Sweatshop, and Criminal Special Edition

Listen to the podcast!

Genre Smorgasbord

TexThis week, Derek and Andy W. discuss recent titles that span the genre spectrum. First they look at the new release from Dark Horse, the English-language release of Claudio Nizzi and Joe Kubert’s Tex the Lonesome Rider. Based on the famous American Western character created in 1948 by Giovanni Luigi Bonelli, this book was originally released in Italian and is now being published in the states in a beautiful hardbound volume. (Dark Horse had released the first part of this story in 2005 as Four Killers, Vol. 1: The Bartlett Brothers, and that same year SAF Comics published the entire story in English, but those books are long out of print.) The guys approach Nizzi’s treatment of Tex Willer as a classic Western, but one that isn’t afraid to delve into the darker, violent side of the genre. In fact, Andy argues that much of the story, underscored by Kubert’s art, owes a debt to noir narrative, and that one could arguably read this as Western noir. Although Tex is a famous figure in Italian comics, he is much less known in the United States, and indeed, both Derek and Andy admit that before this new release, they didn’t know much of anything about Tex and his history. SweatshopInsideBut Tex the Lonesome Rider is the prefect introduction to the character, meticulously rendered by the legendary Kubert, and the guys hope that there will be more translated Tex stories to come. Next, they review the new collection from Peter Bagge, Sweatshop (Fantagraphics). Although this book was just released, Sweatshop isn’t a new comic. It was first serialized by DC Comics during the last half of 2003, but it was canceled after only six issues. Now, the short-lived series is finally collected in a trade paperback, and if you’re not familiar with the work of Peter Bagge, then this would be the prefect place to start. Reminiscent of Bagge’s classic Hate, the story revolves around a self-centered and crotchety newspaper cartoonist and the young people he has working for him on the strip. Illustrated not only by CriminalSpecialEditionBagge, but also by Stephen DeStafano, Johnny Ryan, Stephanie Gladden, and Bill Wray, Sweatshop is a humorous, and at times sarcastically biting, look at the comics industry and the personalities that strut across its stage. Finally, Andy and Derek leap into Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’s Criminal Special Edition (Image), a one-shot oversized comic that takes us back into the creators’ seminal world of noir. Released to help draw attention to the new editions of Criminal published through Image — the original series came out through Marvel’s Icon imprint between 2006 and 2011 — this special edition is also an homage to the kind of sword-and-sorcery magazine-sized comics that appeared in the 1970s. The result is not only a curious pairing of genres, but more significantly, a narratively sophisticated return to a noir world that would eventually lead to such titles as Fatale and The Fade Out. If you’re a fan of crime comics, Criminal Special Edition is essential reading.


Final Issue Podcast- Episode 4: Social Media Etiquette

Our panelists discuss Image increasing their print run sizes, merchandising options for comics, an 11 yr old girls correspondence with DC comics and the Batgirl cover controversy. The final issue this week is a discussion of proper social media etiquette.
