It’s Spooky Season, and what’s been scarier lately than the threat of disease running rampant throughout the world? Not much, so let’s lean into it and take a look at Dr. Crowe, another wonderful collection from 215 Ink, in which a plague doctor deals with mystical elements in his adventures to stop the supernatural from bringing too much havoc into the world of man.

Listen in as Corey Fryia joins the show to help us break down series and get us ready for the trade paperback where you can get all of the current run at once. “Where can I grab this?” might ask. How about at the Dr. Crowe Kickstarter page or preorder at your local comic shop right now.

It’s always nice to be wanted. Even if the people wanting you are evil scientists. OK, maybe that’s not the best situation to be in but sometimes you have to take what you can get.

Listen in as writer Max Majernik and Band of Bards cofounder Chris Benamati join to show to give us an inside look at their current Kickstarter comic Prospects.

I’m just going to let the comic pitch speak for itself here, because I can’t do any better: What if Conan the Barbarian was forced to reclass as a wizard? And if that doesn’t hook you then I have no idea what will.

You know who might though? Les Julian. Which is a good thing since he literally wrote the book. What book is that you might ask? Savage Wizard, which you can get on Kickstarter right now. And you should. So get on that.

I’m not going to dance around it. This is a story that needs to be told right now. In so many ways the world is going to shit. And sadly part of that seems to be comic characters being twisted in the minds of people in ways that fit the exact opposite of what the character actually represents.

I can’t think of anyone better to have written this story and to talk about it than Jay Edidin. Listen in as we talk about the wild ride that the Captain America story from Marvel’s new Marvel Unlimited exclusive Infinity Comics line took to come into existence.

One of the best things about comics is that they can be about literally anything. Super hero stuff is obviously big. Horror comics were big back in the day. We even had comics that focused on historical events. And of course you can tell basically any kind of story you want to.

Part of telling any story is telling the story of people that more of us should know about.  Good thing we have my friend Michiums here to help us take a look at DC’s recent anthology Wonderful Women of the World.Continue Reading

The early 2000s were an exciting time. X-Men had the start of a feature film franchise and I’m sure there isn’t anything that could go wrong with that at all is there….. But for real people were really starting to get the hang of this PlayStation thing. And this was right at the start of every movie having a game to go with it.

Listen in as Billy comes back to help take a look at this game that certainly isn’t a Capcom vs title, but is still nothing to sneeze at. Mostly because that’s a rude thing to do.

This Episode is brought to you in part by Pocus Hocus, a Kickstarter comic that takes a look at what happens when someone sells their soul to the devil and then decides that they want their soul back.

How did I think I was the only one who didn’t read Gilgamesh in school? Somehow I thought I was the only one who missed it. But it turns out that even someone who is making a Gilgamesh comic didn’t have to read it in school. Now that’s just out there.

Good thing we have Cam Kerkau and Kostas Pantoulas here to talk about their Kickstarter comic Gilgamesh Eternal because I need a crash course in the subject.Continue Reading

Imagine a world where you couldn’t feel. No, for real, feeling will get you killed. And not just feeling hate or feeling love or any other specific emotion. All of them. Nothing is safe.

Good thing we have Peter Milligan here to help up navigate through this strange existence. Listen in as we talk about his new book from Vault Comics, Human Remains.

Men in Black is a franchise that I don’t think will ever leave the public consciousness. Sure, we didn’t know the comic even existed when the movie came out and we were 10 years old (I’m not doing that math but the age seems right for me). And for most kids when a cartoon happens as well that’s just a goldmine waiting to happen.

Good thing Kristian Cabrera from Simping for Senpai is here to help make up for my childhood foolishness. And maybe to uncover some secret alien related government tomfoolery.

The best thing about public domain IP is that you can do whatever you want with it. Like, oh I don’t know, taking the Wizard of Oz and making it a war story. After all, you did kind of have Dorothy coming in and killing people. That’s not exactly a nice move.

If only I knew someone who has done exactly that….. How about David Pepose? Yeah that would be good. So it’s a good thing that who you get to listen to in this episode.

And just a warning, we recorded this episode before the Kickstarter campaign for The OZ went public. And it kind of exploded a little bit. In a good way.

First impressions are a powerful thing, especially on the internet since we’re constantly blasted with so much information that it’s really easy to see a thing flash before our eyes and never see it again.

That’s why when I saw that Band of Bards was a new comic publisher with a focus on diversity I knew I had to hurry up and ask them to be on the show before I had a brain fart and forgot. Thankfully, Tim Stolinski was able to come on and let us know a bit about the company and their current Kickstarter campaign for Final Gamble.

How many times can I say that I’m a sucker for people promoting their own stuff? The Kickstarter Hustle is real folks and I respect the Hell out of it.

That’s why we have Jim Ousley back on the show to talk about his newest project The Atonement Bell.

X-Men. It’s the reason I started this podcast. It’s the comic series that people ask me about the most for coming on the show. And they just never disappoint because there are about a billion different reasons why people have gotten into them and why they love them. So what’s wrong with another look?

If you ask Kevin Newburn, nothing at all. Which is great because that would have made for a really awkward episode if he didn’t think that these mutants were worth another look.

Well it’s been a nice run of bonus episodes, way more than I ever intended to run back to back to…. well you get the idea. So to get back to the regular episodes I feel like it’s best to go with on of my first loves, our friendly neighborhood wall crawler Spider-Man.

Good thing today’s guest David Gallaher likes Spider-Man too because otherwise this could have gotten weird. Not that it didn’t anyway but at least it’s the kind of weird that we’ve gotten used to on this show.

Pets are better than people. Nobody should be shocked to hear that from me. I make it no secret that I love my cats more than basically any human who could ever exist. And that when I’ve lost pets in the past it’s just wrecked me.

So on that happy note listen to Steve Orlando and Steve Foxe come on the show to talk about Rainbow Bridge, the story of a boy’s last adventure with his dog. And if that doesn’t hit you right in the feels then I don’t think you were listening.

This Episode is brought to you in part by AfterShock Comics since they are publishing the book and everything.

Kickstarter is the bane of my existence because so many cool things are rolling through there. It’s a good problem to have I guess.

But Chris Mancini and Fernando Pinto, those two are enablers. Why do they have to be making such a cool sounding comic? Why do they have to be good people on top of that? Why do they make it so easy for me to give them my money?

This Episode is brought to you in part by White Cat Entertainment, both because they created this comic and because they’re just a cool company anyway.Continue Reading

The world just can’t get enough zombies. They’re everywhere. So let’s throw in dating at the same time. Let’s be real here, I’m not sure which is scarier.

Good thing we have Steve Urena here to help sort this stuff out. Listen in as we talk about his newest Kickstarter comic Zombie Date Night, which as of the publishing of this episode is fully funded and has just under 2 weeks left in the campaign for you to get in on the fun.

It all comes back to Spider-Man doesn’t it? There’s a good reason for that, he is one of Marvel’s premier characters for a reason. We’re just going to have a Spider-Man game for every console aren’t we?

Tune in this week as Aaron Weiss from Weisscast joins the show to help break down why Spider-Man gets so much love in the gaming sphere.

This Episode is brought to you in part by the wonderful Play Comics Patreon Supporters

The best thing about supporting a cool story on Kickstarter is getting to go along for the ride over the course of the story’s lifetime. And that’s what we’re doing here in the first time we’re taking a second look at a Kickstarter storyline.

Tommy Jauregui comes by the show again to talk about the second chapter of his Endless Moons story. And hopefully convinces some of you to back the Endless Moons Kickstarter campaign.

Don’t get me wrong, I love super hero comics. But they’ve been around forever, and with that longevity comes a tie to the past that just can’t be ignored. No matter what anyone does with Superman or Hulk there’s always going to be someone complaining that a bit of the past is being ignored. Even if that piece of the past is deeply rooted in values and ideas that we don’t hold as a society anymore.

Which is one reason why I’m so excited to get to talk to Adam Gorham, artist for The Blue Flame, Vault’s first venture into superhero comics. Listen in as we talk starting a superhero universe and how even I have someone who wants me to draw. Time will tell if that opinion holds up.

This Episode is brought to you in part by Vault Comics since they are publishing the book and everything.

Sometimes I just get confused when it comes to localization decisions. Why can’t we get the manga license with our games? Did they think we wouldn’t like a plane based shooter because it had a comic with it that we didn’t recognize?

Good thing that I have Steampunk Link and Emmy Zero from SNEScapades here to help straighten things up. Listen in as we try to solve this and other mysterious aspects of this early SNES Era gem.
