February 16, 2017 5:58 pm Great show, guys. I appreciate the dedication to script and format that you manage in the POW podcasts, but the wider ranging nature of this conversation was excellent. I need to become a Patreon supporter, as I suspect the monthly hangouts are similar. Thanks for the deluge of material this month.
August 1, 2016 6:53 pm Conor, listen to Josh on this one - read Thor again. Jane is such a superb Thor. Jason Aaron imbues the story with the same weight and grandiosity that his God Butcher story had. If you're really waiting for the Odinson to return though, at least make a note to return to this run in trade format sometime in the future. It's going to stand the test of time.
June 19, 2016 10:22 pm Agreed. Excellent interview Josh. Particularly impressed with how well you balanced the writer/artist questions. Would love to listen to more of these.
April 24, 2016 10:09 pm I second this request. Just last week while reading the Grant Morrison's Wonder Woman: Earth One, I found myself wondering what you guys thought of the work.
April 4, 2016 8:27 pm Just wanted to chime in about Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. As Josh pointed out, it's not really a book for most of us. I have a colleague at school though, whose young African American daughter (about six years old) hangs around the science department. When I saw this book, I knew I had to get it for her. I gave her the first issue, and she was thankful, but unsure about it. Every month since then, she gets super excited when she comes to collect the next issue from me. For that reason alone, I'm glad this book exists. I know it won't be around for long, but until it goes away, I'll have that one kid's excitement of seeing a character just like her in comics.
October 26, 2015 9:36 pm Your hatred of the current costumes is well placed. I can't think of a time with less visually appealing costumes than the 90s, but we're getting pretty close.
September 16, 2015 8:11 pm What a great interview. Seriously, it's so good to have this type of discussion about the craft with pros back.
April 29, 2014 11:11 pm Is Lone Wolf and Cub as good as its reputation suggests? I haven't read it, bit I've also never heard you guys mention it, You tend to call out great books that you love, so I'm genuinely curious.
October 6, 2013 11:27 pm Haven't listened to the podcast yet, so sorry if this was already mentioned. The best fantasy comic out in the past ten years was the first Dungeons & Dragons series put out by IDW. It's written by Jon Rodgers and (mostly) drawn by Andre DiVito. The characters were cool and it read like a great TV show. I looked forward to that book every month it came out. There are only about 16 issues in total and they are worth tracking down.
