Comic Book Savant Episode 193: Comics Talk: Aquaman


This week I had a chance to catch up on a series I am woefully behind on Aquaman. I read Aquaman #7-13 which is collected in the Aquaman Vol. 2: The Others TP as well as #0. I will discuss and review all the issues I read in hopes to give you all the information you need to decide if this book is worth picking up. Enjoy!


View from the Gutters Episode 64 — The Superior Spider-Man


This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is The Superior Spider-Man, written by Dan Slott with art by Ryan Stegman, Humberto Ramos, Giuseppe Camuncoli, and others. Beginning in January 2013 and ending this month, Superior Spider-Man is not the story of Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man. Doctor Octopus swapped brains with Peter in Amazing Spider-Man #700, leaving Peter to die is Doc Ock’s terminally sick body. Otto, however, swears that he will devote himself to not simply continue the legacy of Spider-Man, but to become the Superior Spider-Man, outdoing his arch-rival by doing more with his life than Peter ever did.

Thus begins The Superior Spider-Man, as we witness Otto adapting to life as Peter Parker and putting his own unique spin on what it means to be Spider-Man. Superior has been an interesting change in status quo for Spider-Man as a comic, altering much of the landscape of what Spider-Man has been over the past 50 years, moreso even than when Peter was previously replaced by his clone (who legit everyone thought was the original Peter, until it turned out he wasn’t, and then he died; comics everybody).

This series also sees the return of fan-favorite Spider-Man 2099, as well as other nods to the 2099 line such as the founding of future megacorp Alchemax.

In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated Dumbing of Age, The Adventures of Superhero Girl, and Juice Squeezers for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is The Adventures of Superhero Girl. You can read it for free online at

Our hosts for this episode were Andrew Chard, Tobiah Panshin, and Cade Reynolds.

Deconstructing Comics #400: SoCal Comics Conversation

Robert RoachTim Across America, part ten! The finish line of Tim’s trip is Los Angeles, home of our friend Dale Wilson, of BuyIndieComics and DWAP Productions. Dale hooks us up with Robert Roach, comics creator and Hollywood storyboarder. He fills us in on ways that storyboarding is much different from comics, and also talks about the importance of getting the details in your story right — regardless of medium.

Legacy Comics and CardsFor the Southern California edition of Ask a Retailer, a talk with Howard Chen at Legacy Comics and Cards in Glendale. Unlike most of the other Tim Across America retailers, Legacy still has plenty of manga on the shelves. But to what extent are those books flying off the shelves?

Richard, Dale, Griffin, and StephFinally, Tim and Dale are joined by Stephenny Godfrey (“Panorama”, “Two Buses”) and Richard Hamilton (“Return of the Super Pimps”, “Miserable Dastards”) to discuss the L.A. comics community and revisit a topic from the Chicago episode: should you make a comic as a step toward getting your story on film?

Also, don’t miss Griffin the Dog in his podcast debut!

Tim appears on camera, for once.
