Robots From Tomorrow!

With Greg back in the underground recording studio, the lads decide to take a cue from the date and talk turkey; comics turkey, that is! From Mike’s recent foray to the Comics Art Brooklyn show last month to the recent shake-ups over at Marvel Comics, there’s a lot going on in this episode. What could Brian Michael Bendis’ DC future hold? What are the ups and down sides to C.B. Cebulski’s promotion to Editor-in-Chief at Marvel? What does Mike think is a good entry point to the works of Chris Ware? Today’s episode is the perfect way to sneak in a little slice of comics as you slip into that post-Thanksgiving dinner tryptophan coma.

This part of our monthly Previews two-parters is a little different, for two reasons. One: Mike is still flying solo. Two: the first premire publisher up for discussion this time around is Marvel. Instead of ending on the usual downbeat that is the general apathy our distiguished hosts feel towards The House of Ideas, this month we get that out of the way first. From there? Well, Mignola and Stenbeck kick off "Koshchei the Deathless," "Snagglepuss" enters stage right, and "Frankenstein Alive, Alive" is alive! Plus: questionable "Artists' Editions," delux reprints, all-ages comics and way more!

Emboldened by his solo run of Pull List episodes, Mike takes a crack at tackling this month's Previews catalog all by his lonesome. So what sorts of funny books await us in November's green section? How about a new "Strangers in Paradise" series? Will this 25th anniversary title finally get Mike to read this series? Enough with the questions, let's get declarative! There's a spiffy looking collection of Wally Wood and Jack Kirby's "Skymasters" on the horizon, as is a volume of classic Archie horror comics. Speaking of Archie, looks like their new series "Cosmo" might just fill the Sonic-shaped hole in their line up (and Mike's heart.) Then, of course, there's plenty of Fantagraphics love, particularly for that Shak Kane book they're coming to market with! All that and so much more await you in this week's episode!

This episode originally aired March 26, 2014.

After months of threatening and a few near-misses, we finally take a look at the manga/anime juggernaut that is Katsuhiro Otomo’s Akira. But not just one version; all three! The B&W manga, the color Epic run from the late 1980’s, and the anime. 4200+ pages of comics (over the two versions) plus over 2 hours of anime have lead up to this discussion. We guarantee that you’ll come away from this episode having learned something about this work that you never knew. How do the different translations affect Otomo’s overall message? How can the anime be an entirely faithful adaptation and yet leave out vast chunks of story? What are the bosozoku? Who is the main character? Does color help or hurt this manga masterpiece? All this and so much more is waiting for you in our latest episode!

One of the perks of being part of the Multiversity podcasting family is it puts you in touch with group of people who really know their comics. Case in point: today's chat with writer Ram V about his upcoming Image series "Paradiso" came via a recommendation and introduction from Pop Culture Hound's Chris Thompson, and follows in the footsteps of Ram's appearance on Paul Lai's Comics Syllabus show. Paul's customary deep dive with Ram into "Paradiso"'s debut leaves Greg a blank canvas to draw on for his own talk. Hear what he comes up with, as well as what your favorite city might sound like if you bumped into them on the street, and much more on today's episode!
