Funko Pops with Adam Williamson (Boldly Viewing)

My wife says no Funko Pops for me, at least not if I’m paying for them. She lets me get video games and comics, so I guess I can’t complain. But since I was shutdown before I could even express any kind of interest in getting some I never really looked into them.

That’s where Adam Williamson comes in. I learn some about the history of these big headed little dudes, how he gets away with having so many, and just what I’m missing out on.

Politics in Comics with Reed Puc, Kamijace, and Adam Williamson

The world is once again whining about finding politics in the entertainment. Almost like they haven’t been paying attention to anything for years. Oh my gosh, when did all of this politics get into comics? Can’t we go back to the good old days when it just wasn’t there? Excuse me, I could barely keep a straight face typing that out.

Listen in as Reed Puc, Kamijace, and Adam Williamson stop by to talk about the political nature of comics.

Alright let’s get one thing straight right now. Comics are supposed to be fun. And making them is supposed to be fun. Literally everything about comics is supposed to be fun.

Atlantis Wasn’t Built for Tourists with Erik Palicki

I had the pleasure of having Eric Palicki come on to talk about his new book Atlantis Wasn’t Build for Tourists coming to us from Scout Comics on August 17th. That’s plenty of time for you to ask your local comic shop to make sure they have a copy for you. Or later, the everything going on in the world has been messing with release dates all over the place.

Mr. Butterchips with Alex Schumacher

I think some of the best social commentary comes from the viewpoint of a character who can say what they want without really worrying about the consequence. Someone who can just say what’s on their mind and that’s that. Even better when it’s an animal just because I find that more entertaining.

So I’m really glad that Alex Schumacher and I finally got together to talk about his new book collecting a bunch of his web comic Mr. Butterchips.

Ch05en: Kris with Will Dickstein

One of the things I’ve really come to like about comics is that there are so many stories happening at once. You can tell there’s something overarching going on but can also focus on what’s just in front of you at the moment. 

The problem for me has been knowing where to start, what tie ins need to be read and what can be skipped, if something is going to be a good jumping on point, that sort of thing. 

Will Dickstein might have that solved with his Ch05en series. The newest edition, which focuses on Kris, was my first experience in this world and I didn’t feel lost at all reading it. In fact I really want to go back and read more of it now to see what else is going on. 

So no matter if you want to start with this Kris centered story or anywhere else in the series you’ll be in a good place.

Why Manga Before Anime and Other Tangents with Justin Williams (SuperTangent)

You’ve got lots of manga titles. You’ve got lots of anime titles. And it always seems to be a manga coming first, then the anime coming after that. But why?

Listen in as Justin Williams from Super Tangent tries to discuss this with Chris. But tangents happen so there’s other stuff as well.

Making Friends With Your Ghosts

Recently I was a guest on Bipolar and Surviving to talk to Dan Lis and his listeners about my experiences with anxiety and depression. That’s nothing new. I’ve talked about it before and I’ll probably talk about it again, and I’ll be as open as the host wants me to be about it.

But Dan asked me an interesting question, one that he’s probably asked a ton of people but nobody has asked me yet. He asked if I would get rid of the anxiety and depression aspect of my life if I could, and I’ll give you the pretty much the same answer here as I did on Dan’s show. I really don’t think I would despite how much I hate having to deal with it.

Why Hal Jordan Sucks with Dan McMahon (DC SuperSons)

One of the things I like about comics is that there is such a history to everything. And inevitably that leads to someone hating certain iterations of a character, or with the “real life” identity of the character.

Good thing Dan McMahon from DC SuperSons has some feelings on the matter. Listen in as we discuss why Hal Jordan sucks.

Pro Wrestling with Charlie Davis (The Young Ones, Match Club)

Super Slasher with Luke Herr (Mutliversal Q/RPG Pals Club/Exiled)

Luke Herr from  Exiled, Multiversal Q, and RPG Pals Club comes by the show to talk about his comic Super Slasher. Luke is great and I really love everything I’ve seen from him and I don’t expect Super Slasher to be any different.

If Super Slasher sounds like something you want to get your hands on then go visit the Super Slasher Kickstarter and give him your money. I already did so you can’t pressure me with the same tactics. 

You can find Luke over on Exiled, Multiversal Q, and RPG Pals Club. Or catch him on Twitter @koltreg.

Pizza Boyz with Spencer Scott Holmes

Spencer Scott Holmes from Old Man Orange comes by the show to talk about his comic Pizza Boyz. Hear about the inspiration behind it and a bit about his process. And if I hadn’t been an idiot you could have heard it before the Kickstarter campaign was over. That one’s totally my fault.

Good news though, there’s always Pizza Boyz on Comixology so you can still read it if it’s something that you’d be into. And since you’re listening to this podcast I’m pretty sure it’s something you’d be into.

AMA #1 Hosted by Karrington Martin (Real Dudes Podcast)

I figured it was time to get some questions answered, so here’s a rather unedited take on that. Frequent guest Karrington Martin graciously agreed to host the show so that you could hear something besides me asking myself questions because let’s face it, that could get kind of weird.
