February 26, 2017 12:40 pm Love having Talksplodes to listen to! Interviewing is a difficult art form unto itself that few have mastered, even among professionals. And with good reason. It’s hard to listen and respond to comments in real-time, all while keeping next questions in mind and steering the interview along an organic path, not a prescribed one. If you can do it, insight and even revelation comes along as by-product. Josh, you’ve become one of the best interviewers out there -- in any context. In other words, you got this. Keep ‘em coming! Thanks, guys.
October 17, 2016 10:31 am Awesome show as always, gents. Thanks! One humble request - if you are going to give spoilers based on advance previews/solicitations, if you think of it would you give a second spoiler alert on that? I don't read previews or solicitations so as to leave myself open for surprises, so the spilling the beans about the upcoming supernatural element of "Moonshine" was kind of spoilerific. If not even spoilerageous. No biggie, of course, and like I said at the top, your show rules. Great to see the booksplodes and talksplodes returning! Josh does the best comics interviews in the biz, hands down.
August 17, 2012 10:42 pm Bendis is the mystery bubbleheaded person.
August 16, 2012 8:43 pm "The Hulk vs. The Thing" in FF #25 shows Ben's true character — he never stops fighting, even once he realizes he's no match for the tireless, Gamma-powered Hulk. Stan and his talented colleagues introduced pathos and humor to superhero genre in the Silver Age, and Ben Grimm stands alongside Peter Parker as the greatest examples of the type. And the fact that Ben is based on Jack Kirby's personality and background make him a wonderful tribute to the greatest comics artist of all time. The King is gone; long live the Thing!
July 26, 2012 7:59 pm You have to suspend a BUSLOAD of disbelief to enjoy this movie. Just sayin'. Even more so than Inception. Also, is this really a Batman movie? Or just a dystopian future, hero's quest, adventure story. Replace Bruce Wayne with Bruce Willis, circa 1990, and you'd have pretty much the same story.
July 11, 2012 8:23 pm Yes! This book is amazing. Incredibly impressive work for a writer-artist, from both sides of the equation. Rich, complex, story, with killer art and plenty of hooks to draw you in. There's a lot more nuance here than the cover suggests. Can't wait for more.
April 11, 2012 9:25 pm Excellent podcast! Jam-packed with valuable info. Thanks guys!
March 14, 2012 7:30 pm I see Bob McKee's photo -- did I miss the part where you discuss his excellent ideas about story, or recommend his book? It's a must for all writers. And probably more useful to aspiring creators than anecdotes about how to edit Peter David!
