Episode 158 – The Dark Knight Returns, Strikes Back & More!

by Chris Thompson

With Adam Sherif & Owen Michael Johnson …
 
On this week’s show, Chris teams up with his old pals Adam Sherif & Owen Johnson to take a look back at Frank Miller‘s seminal The Dark Knight Returns and Strikes Again alongside DKIII: The Master Race #1.
 
The guys take a look at each of the books, reviewing what they mean to them and what Frank is trying to say. It’s a long show (don’t say we didn’t warn you!) but well worth it to revisit this key piece of comics’ history.

by Chris Thompson

With Dan Watters & Caspar Wijngaard …

It’s a fascinating glimpse into the early days of two up-and-coming creators who are happy to share their journey with others.

Episode 152 – A Taste of Space Dumplins with Craig Thompson!

by Chris Thompson

With Craig Thompson …
 
This week I chat with my near-namesake Craig Thompson about his new all-ages graphic novel Space Dumplins. In addition to geeking out over similar names and Christian rock of the mid-to-late ’80s, we discuss Craig’s love of comics growing up, how he explores various themes through his work, and why now is the right time for an all-ages book that addresses environmental issues and the class divide. All that plus some hints of Craig’s future plans, including a return (of sorts) to Blankets. Face it, true believer – you don’t want to miss this one!

Episode 151 – A Meeting of Oddfellows with Jack Logan!

by Chris Thompson

With Jack Logan …
 
After last week’s landmark 150th episode with Fight Club 2‘s Chuck Palahniuk, I’ve stripped things back for a somewhat more personal show paying tribute to one of my favourite bands: R.E.M. Planning the schedule, I realised Episode 151 was looming, which got me thinking about their classic song Oddfellows Local 151 from the album Document [1989].
 
By my reckoning – and given the incredible crossover between comics and music – I assumed at least one of the band members must be a comic fan, and maybe I could get them on the show. Despite the odd murmur, that search didn’t bear its intended fruit, but along the way I discovered the work of singer-songwriter and cartoonist Jack Logan.
 
Jack, as it turns out, was a largely unsung hero of the Athens, Georgia music scene, which had spawned R.E.M. as well as being a hotbed for creative talent. His eponymous Pete Buck Comics (inspired by the band’s famed guitarist) are still highly sought after today, though Jack has now made them available through his website Jack Logan’s Mysterious Basement.
 
I hope you’ll enjoy this special episode, which serves as a personal document of where music and comics meet for both of us. Jack opens up about where his love of the two began, the many paths his career has taken over the years since, and what future plans he may have for Pete Buck and his other art projects.
