With the August 24th release of Twomorrows' newest comics book "Comic Book Fever", Greg got a chance to chat with writer George Khoury about this love letter to the comics and comics culture of his youth. From his survey of British art talent in “True Brit”, to his benchmark work untangling the Miracleman legacy and legal history in “Kimota! The Miracleman Companion”, to his extensive interview and contextualization of one of comics’ greatest creators in “The Extraordinary Works of Alan Moore”, Khoury has proven himself as one of the pillars of the Twomorrows publishing line and a must-read when it comes to understanding and celebrating the medium we all enjoy. Nowhere is that combination more evident than in "Fever”.

Celebrating the last decade of the Bronze Age, “Fever” touches on so many aspects of comics and comics culture from 1976 to 1986, that if you were a comics fan from that era and DIDN’T see something you recognized and remembered fondly...maybe you weren’t actually a fan.

He and Greg talk about not only his books, but also which DC artist was a spitting image of <em>Mean Streets</em>-era Martin Scorsese, how likely we are to see an updated volume of "Kimota!", why people shouldn't be surprised when poking the bear doesn't put the bear in the best mood, and more on this laidback, free-wheeling episode!

This week's episode kicks off with a simple request: pick a number. It's a lottery of sorts for Mike and Greg as random comics are plucked from their places and used as kindling for conversation. Dark Reign-era Marvel, Mike's least favorite "Hellboy" arc, and a deep dive into Ashley Wood's storytelling decisions are just a few topics that're touched on in this wide-ranging free for all! Also, keep this image handy for later reference.

A co-host’s comment and an EiC’s panel answer spark this week’s discussion on tackling the comic reader’s eternal dilemma: “How can I make time to enjoy the comics I already have when I keep buying more each week?” Unstoppable forces and immovable objects collide as the lads discuss not only quantities of comics but quality of reading as well. When was the last time you got to savor a book? Really look at and absorb for more than two seconds that page an artist worked a whole day creating? But with the market as it stands, and deserving creators needing every single customer to keep their books afloat, is dropping New Comic Day cold turkey really the answer? And what is your definition of ‘deserving’? All those questions and more posed, pondered, and maybe even answered on this week’s episode!

After tackling the Green section last week, Mike and Greg turn their full attention to the front half of the Previews catalog for September 2016. Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Image, IDW… they may be deemed Premier publishers by Diamond, but are they bringing the goods this month? Will DC’s Gerard Way-headed “Doom Patrol” title be the breakout hit Young Animal needs? Where are the gotta-have-them-NOW books that used the set Image apart from the pack? Standing behind the astronauts, maybe? And is Civil War II the next event giving Marvel momentum at the cost of a burnt-out readership? It's not all gloom and (Doctor) Doom, but talk gets real about what it means to be following Big Two books in 2016 on the second half of the July 2016 Previews double-header!
