The Mean Geek-Episode #197-“There’s A Little Too Much Orwell, And Not Enough Roddenberry”

We talk for a little bit about nothing significant at all, and then launch into the December Indies. We start with RAGNAROK 3 and zombie Thor amuses me. THE HUMANS 2 is even worse. MANIFEST DESTINY 11 has giant mosquitos being extracted from people’s backs. WYTCHES 3 is flashback city; EXTINCTION PARADE WAR 5 has vampires literally playing soldier, much to our chagrin. BITCH PLANET 1 promises a lot but is gonna take time to build worlds. REVIVAL 36 has more convoluted weirdness than you can shake a shmoo at. HELLBOY 1952 1 Gives us the first real missions for our hero. MEN OF WRATH 3 has a shootout in a church and executions. UBER 20 continues an uninterrupted runs of sheer awesome and adds a sort of body horror. OUTCAST 6 the boys visit an old lady and the pastor is assaulted. WAR STORIES 3 completes the arc with a high cost mission and a happy ending. AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE 7 has Betty’s diary, thanksgiving in the woods, incest, and fratricide. This concludes episode 97, and we were happy to bring it to you on the SIXTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE SHOW!

EJDAC Ep. 15: End of Days

EJDAC_Cover_Ep15

Erik and James examine Deadpool #42, Uncanny Avengers #2, Thor Annual #1, and Fantastic Four #643, with the specter of Secret Wars (and the end of the universe as we know it) looming over them. Also, our heroes come up with two hypothetical Secret Wars titles they’d love to see in the Battleworld to come. To no one’s surprise, James proposes an X-title, and Erik’s title spins out of a past Remender yarn gone wrong. The surprises are in the specifics. In 2 months…Time Runs Out.


Super Hero Speak – #94: Erik Larsen

This week John and Dave sit down with the creator of Savage Dragon himself, Erik Larsen. They talk about how Erik got interested in comics and how he created Savage Dragon in the 4th grade! They also talk about his early influences and the evolution of Dragon. Finally they field some fan submitted questions, which included who was better Marvel or DC? And will we ever see a Spider/Savage Dragon cross over? Only if Disney buys Erik! So sit back and enjoy.

He’s Got Issues: My Storage :(


Last week, I discovered that my “climate controlled” storage unit had sprung a leak in the ceiling sometime in the last few months.

So storms that came through in January leaked into my unit. Because it has been warm since, the unit has essentially been a sauna (i.e. humid.)

Fortunately, initial investigation seems like the books are safe for the most part. Their protective sealed bags and boards did their job.

I am however, replacing 250+ long boxes, as well as almost all of my shelving.

I am working with moisture damage professionals on assessment and preservation.

The storage management has been very helpful, understanding, kind, and supportive.

I am also working with my insurance, but will know more after I finish with the moisture specialists.

While this was initially heartbreaking, it is not seeming to be as bad as it could have been.

It has been kind of a best case, worst case scenario. (Second probably only to fire.)

I am not posting this here for your sympathy. I am not complaining.

My motto this week has been: “it’s only stuff”

However, given the various skill sets among this group, I do welcome your advice.

I don’t want to overlook anything while addressing this, and appreciate your constructive input.

(I overlaid the audio, otherwise all you would hear is a bunch of heavy sighing.)000-hesgotissues

Comics Alternative Special: A Roundtable Discussion on Will Eisner Week with Denis Kitchen and Michael Schumacher

Listen to the podcast!

Will Eisner in Perspective

Kitchen-Schumacher

On this special episode of The Comics Alternative, Andy and Derek kick off Will Eisner Week by having as their guests on the show Denis Kitchen and Michael Schumacher. Denis is an underground comix legend as well the force behind Kitchen Sink Press, and he was a close friend, business associate, and former publisher of Eisner. Michael is an author whose biography, Will Eisner: A Dreamer’s Life in Comics, was released by Bloomsbury in 2010. The Two Guys talk with them about the comics of Will Eisner, the artist’s impact and innovations, and the person behind the legend. They discuss with Denis his recollections of his relationship with Eisner, explore the impact of the underground comix movement on the artist’s career, and hear anecdotes about Eisner’s aesthetic philosophy and business practices. Derek and Andy also talk with Michael about his experiences researching Eisner, his papers, and former associates, and they learn about his efforts in chronicling Eisner’s life. The result is an engaging conversation that not only celebrates the artist, but also honors the man who was Will Eisner.
