Episode 129 – The Real/Fake Geeks Tackle Secret Wars!

by Chris Thompson

With Maria Norris & Secret Wars …
 
Following on from the recent chaos of Nick Marino & Daniel Arruda Massa, this week I’m back with Maria Norris as The Real/Fake Geeks take on Jonathan Hickman‘s epic Secret Wars!
 
To coincide with this year’s Free Comic Book Day, we look at what you need to know going into this major Marvel event. Plus we discuss Marvel’s FCBD offerings and take a look at the new Marvel Previews in an effort to make sense of it all. If that’s not enough, we also share our thoughts on Avengers: Age Of Ultron and how it relates to us as comics fans.

Episode 93 – Enormous Undertakings with Tim Daniel!

by Chris Thompson

With Tim Daniel …
 
Following on from last week’s episode with Sina Grace & Daniel Freedman (which you can still listen to here), this time around I’m back with Tim Daniel, who recently appeared on the show with Jeremy Holt.
 
Tim & I discuss the route he took breaking into comics, how design (and designers) have become a more focal part of the comics medium, what he’s learned between releasing the Enormous one-shot and the new ongoing series, and all the other things he has on his plate right now. It’s a fascinating look at how design is asserting itself in comics and allowing people to do more than they ever dreamed.

Episode 33 – Going Undercover with Marcos Martin!

by Chris Thompson

With Marcos Martin …
 
Things are back to normal as Taylor and I are reunited in the studio to discuss three exciting new releases this week: Michael Moreci & Drew Zucker’s Skybreaker from Monkeybrain Comics; Jonathan Hickman, Nick Dragotta & Frank Martin‘s East Of West from Image Comics; and The Private Eye by Brian K. Vaughan, Marcos Martin & Muntsa Vicente.
 
We also have an exclusive chat with Marcos about his work on The Private Eye. Marcos & I go in-depth about his creative process, how the project came to be, what it’s like working with Brian & Muntsa, how he views the industry today, and what they’re trying to achieve with this comic. It’s a unique glimpse behind the curtain of a project (and creator) shrouded in mystery.

Episode 21 – Christmas with Emma Ríos & Guillermo Ortego!

by Chris Thompson

With Emma Rios & Guillermo Ortego …
 
Although our look at Marvel Now! may be winding down, this week Taylor and I have the hotly anticipated (at least by us) Morbius The Living Vampire #1 from Joe Keatinge & Richard Elson and New Avengers #1 from Jonathan Hickman & Steve Epting to enjoy.
 
We also present the long-overdue Christmas/New Year Special I recorded with artists Emma Ríos and Guillermo Ortego at Malta Comic-Con last month. Aside from sharing beers and cracking jokes, we make fun of my poor attempts at Spanish; discuss techniques and how they got started in the industry; share our mutual love for Brandon Graham, David Aja, and classic Westerns; talk about what’s coming up next; and much, much more!
 
All that and we continue to enjoy our BrewDog Craft Beers with the mind-blowingly strong Anarchist/Alchemist.

Episode 18 – with Ryan Ferrier from Challenger Comics!

by Chris Thompson

With Ryan Ferrier …
 
Taylor and I have mixed views about this week’s Marvel Now! books, and find we don’t see eye-to-eye with Daniel Way’s Thunderbolts #1 or Jonathan Hickman’s much-anticipated Avengers #1.
 
Taylor also chats with Ryan Ferrier (Tiger Lawyer and Challenger Comics) about his career thus far, how Challenger came to be, and where things are going next. Plus we enjoy our first sample of BrewDog Craft Beers, starting with their classic 5am Saint.
