iFanboy #174 – San Diego Comic-Con 2010 (Part One)

Show Notes

iFanboy takes you to SDCC like no one else can, getting inside with the best creators in comics, and talking about actual comics among all the madness. This year was no exception, so get ready for the first part of our 2010 San Diego Comic-Con coverage.

Skottie Young of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Ron talked to artist Skottie Young, hot off his double Eisner win for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz with Eric Shanower.

Peter Krause of Irredeemable

Peter Krause, the artist on Mark Waid’s Irredeemable, from BOOM! Studios, talks with Josh about returning to comics, and working on a book as special and fun as Irredeemable.

Chris Burnham of Officer Downe and Amory Wars

Chris Burnham absolutely let loose with his artwork with Officer Downe, written by Joe Casey. The feast of carnage and silliness was nothing but fun. He’s also involved in Claudio Sanchez’ Amory Wars with BOOM! Studios.

Ron Marz and Michael Broussard of Artifacts from Top Cow

Top Cow writer extraordinaire Ron Marz, and up and coming artist Michael Broussard talk to Josh about the new mini-series, Artifacts, and what it means in the Top Cow Universe, as well as all the extra care put into this story.

Joe Kelly of Megamind

Joe Kelly, a favorite writer of iFanboy, fresh off the “Grim Hunt” story in The Amazing Spider-Man chats with Ron about the change of pace in writing the comic prequel to the upcoming Megamind animated film.

Jeph Loeb of Red Hulk

The always affable Jeph Loeb talks about wrapping up his monster Red Hulk series with artist Ed McGuinness and his new role as head of Marvel’s TV department. Will there come a time when we’ll see a primetime Marvel series on TV? This is the guy to ask.

Grant Morrison of Batman, Inc., The Return of Bruce Wayne, and Batman and Robin

DC’s Batman helmsman Grant Morrison tells us a very little bit about the next act in his Batman opus, Batman Incorporated, as well as the viability of a character like Damian Wayne.

  1. Man, such a great show guys.  I could listen to Grant Morrison talk for days

  2. At about 5:20, I see Paul sneaking about dressed as hugh hefner.  Nice try paul.

  3. Outstanding show guys, and one of the funniest opening credits you’ve ever done. All the hours & hard work are so worth it. Great job!

  4. So glad you finally got a Grant Morrison interview. Batman’s operations tripled, sounds exciting:)

  5. We’ve had Grant on the show several times. Just sayin’.

  6. Mike Romo rules.

  7. Wait till next episode.

  8. Ron’s intro is the…weirdest? Is that the right word?

  9. Loved the opening intro. Great show all round, can’t wait for part two.

  10. Great show guys!

  11. Great interviews. Just wondering, will you guys upload as a special edition podcast the digital comics panel that Ron moderated?

  12. @darkturtle: We didn’t record it.

  13. Wow, Grant Morrison said that Bruce would make Damien worse…… I wonder how that will play out when Bruce returns?

  14. I’m soooo glad morrison is going to keep writing batman, he’s got a great grasp on the characters and he’s taking them really interesting places.

  15. ^Yep, agree completely. I do hope that Morrison gives us some plotline-closure before Batman Inc. starts up, but I’m looking forward to a more global, team-oriented title.

    Great show guys.

  16. Great show. Love the cheesy intro; you should use it for your regular show. Was Brian K. Vaughan at the con? Does he have any future comic book plans?

  17. Josh gets 10 extra points for the yellow arrow at the wall…

  18. Heh.

  19. I didn’t get the yellow arrow to the wall bit. Was that related to Thomas Jane?

  20. Some jokes are for more long time viewers/isteners @torippu. It happened at SDCC last year. I’msure we talked about it somewhere, but I can’t remember where.  Audio show?

  21. How nerdy am I that I notice James Urbaniak (who played R. Crumb in American Splendor and is the voice of Dr. Venture on the Venture Bros.) walk by in the background of the Go Daddy spot?

  22. @MisterBlank, we all have our people. Last year, I literally bumped into comedian Doug Benson, and when I went to tell people about it I got a steaming bowl of "Who?"

  23. Finally getting around to seeing the video.  It blows me away how great these things look.  You guys are top notch.  I love the ‘moment of zen’ bit in the beginning with the cosplayers eating lunch.  genius.
