Having not yet reached his breaking point, THE HOUR COSMIC’s Brian Salvatore returns to the show and, like any good guest, brings with him a gift. Lo, there shall come a topic! Jonathan Hickman’s run on The Fantastic Four: great comic magazine or The World’s Greatest Comic Magazine?

Is it too soon to call for this series? What works and what doesn’t? And did Marvel drop the ball in continuing the title’s greatest (if you agree it’s there) with the run that followed Hickman’s? Brian throws down the (Infinity) gauntlet he got from the Council of Reeds for Mike and Greg. Are they up to the challenge?

In an RFT first, Mike & Greg follow up their talk about District 14 Season 1 with a new discussion about its sequel (Season 2) and companion book (The Fantastic Voyage of Lady Rozenbilt), also by the creative team of Pierre Gabus and Rommald Reutimann. But this time, mindful of the dangers of retreading old conversation, the boys add a new voice to the mix: Multiversity Comics Editor-in-Chief Matthew Meylikhov! Spoiler alert: if you liked the first book, you’ll love these new volumes. The trio talk about the necessity of showing unseen plot points, which D14 characters they would love to see in a Lady Rozenbilt-style spinoff, whether color helps or hurts the D14 universe, POV characters versus ensemble pieces, and tons more!

This episode was originally broadcast on December 26, 2013.

This week the guys dive into a work that, courtesy of the good folks at Humanoids, was translated and released in English earlier this year. From the incredibly inventive minds of Pierre Gabus and Romuald Reutimann, District 14 is a comic that pushes convention and genre into all sorts of new places.

Part noir, part sci-fi epic, and with a cast of both humans and funny animals, District 14 is the tale of an elephant named Michael who has recently immigrated to District 14 and is confronted with all the drama and absurdity contained within its walls. Nothing is ever as simple as it seems, especially when it comes to Michael and his newly minted friend Hector McKeagh, a beaver who is also the most notorious reporter in town. District 14 is a comic that can work on a purely fantasy level, while also smartly commenting on some of today's social issues. Wealth, corruption, fame, and the press are just a few examples of the topics reflected on in this work.

This volume, the first in a series, is well worth every comics fan's time. The concept and writing is exceptional, and the art is gorgeous. It's available digitally as well as in hardcover, and it comes with the RFT gold seal of approval.

The term “all ages” tends to be used as a shorthand for kid’s books in comics, but on this episode, Mike and Greg take a look at a book that truly has something for readers of every age: KOMA by Swiss cartoonists Pierre Wazem and Frederik Peeters.

Published by Humanoids in 2012, KOMA follows a young girl named Addidas (but not like the shoe) as she and her chimney-sweep widower father Julius try and stay one step ahead of their competition, all the while suffering mysterious blackouts. While on a job, Addidas follows one of the endless tunnels into an underground place where gigantic creatures operate machines that seem to control everyone on the surface. But that only gives you a hint of the wide range of things Wazem & Peeters touch on, as reality and metaphysics collide with heart-tugging simplicity in this amazing work.

He goes deep-dive into his experience at last weekend's 2000AD 40th Anniversary Thrill Festival, both from behind the microphone and from wandering the convention floor. What kind of shindig does Tharg throw for his favorite Earthlets? How far does the American dollar go in picking up original Thrill-art? When was the last convention you went to where beer-related art accidents were a hazard to consider? Who was the artist 'get' of the show? All that, plus the differences in original art ideology on either side of the Atlantic, the many medias of Mark Buckingham, Rick Veitch tremor meeting Dave Gibbons sheen, recapturing comic shop wonder, solving distribution woes, and much more on today's episode!

Without a net this week, Mike and Greg spin the roulette wheel of comics topics and hit a few lucky numbers! First up is Heavy Metal, that magazine you’ve heard people say was really good a long time ago. Is it having a resurgence? Then comes Archie Comics, and how they are showing everyone else in comics how to give new spins on old characters (and yes, there’s some DC talk spilling out of that).

But like the bouncing ball, we land on another positive topic: Stuart Immonen and the sliding scale of comic art abstraction. And what comics talk is complete without some apocryphal tales: did a well-known comic artist really dangle a DC editor out a window, Bud White-style? If so, which one?

All that and lots more!

Godzilla meets OZ. That's the basic premise behind Zander Cannon's new Oni Press series Kaijumax, and one that has hooked hordes of new readers to the book. But even that high-concept punch doesn't really prepare you for just how good this book is, which is why Greg made a point to sit down with Zander for this conversation about the book, his approach, and the different elements and aspects that went into its development.

What brought the series to Oni Press? How does the book represent a new way of working for him? What was it like working as a layout artist on such books as Top 10 and JLA? What kind of reception has Kaijumax received since it launched in April?

The answers to all those questions and many more are only a mouse click or finger tap away!

In honor of the new "Criminal" volume launching this week, we re-present this book discussion from April 16, 2015.

It wasn't their first creative partnership, or even their first long-form work together, but when comic fans think of the book they first noticed how good Ed Brubaker & Sean Phillips worked together, they almost always think of Criminal. With the series now at Image Comics and being rereleased in new trade paperback collections, Mike & Greg take this opportunity to look at the duo's opening storyline: "Coward".

What does it and the series as a whole know about crime fiction that so many imitators seem to miss? How does it stack up against the Eisner-winning sixth volume "The Last of the Innocent"? Where did the Brubaker/Archie Comics connection first pop up? Why did the duo announce their exclusivity to Image? Who's the best colorist in their crew: Val Staples, Dave Stewart, or Elizabeth Breitweiser?

All that and much much more about the whole world of Phillips and Brubaker is ready for your ears on this week's episode!

This episode was originally broadcast on July 22, 2015.

While sorting through the digital bric-a-brac that litters the subterranean RFT recording studio, we came across something very special buried deep on a hard drive. Back in December 2011, the one and only Jack Davis was the guest of honor at the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival. Fantagraphics had just released "Drawing American Pop Culture," a collection of Davis' art spanning his long and varied career, and the artist himself made the trip from Georgia to Brooklyn so he could sign copies and shake as many hands as possible. He took a little time away from the hustle of the festival to have a seat on stage and discuss his career and art.

Moderated by Gary Groth and Drew Friedman, the conversation you're about to hear touches on all aspect's of Davis' work, including his time at Mad and EC, as well as his commercial work producing magazine covers and movie posters. We're very excited to have found this, and even more excited to share it with all of you.

After covering the imprint’s origin & history, as well as its impact on the broader comics landscape, the lads finally get around to talking about the best aspect of Marvel Knights: the comics themselves! From the flagship Daredevil to the award-winning Inhumans to the culturally savvy Black Panther to the let’s-call-it-misguided first Punisher miniseries, there’s no lack of discussion material.

And the topics don’t stop there! From later series like The Sentry, Marvel Boy, Black Widow, Hard Knocks and the eponymous Dixon-Barreto book, to why the line couldn’t shake its “street level” vibe and what that means, to why David Mack is twice the comics artist you thought he was, to Greg complimenting Jae Lee and Mike complimenting Steve Dillion, to why Frank Castle and Joe Dredd are brothers from different mothers...there’s something for every one in this episode!

It's been twenty years since Marvel launched its "Marvel Knights" imprint -- an event so big the lads are taking two episodes to cover it! This week focuses on the imprint itself, and the who/what/when/where/why of how it came to be and what it set in motion for Marvel as a company and comics as a whole. Plus, how did it measure up to other publisher imprints, including the recent Young Animal over at DC. All that and more as Mike and Greg connect the dots on how Joe Quesada & Jimmy Palmiotti changed comics as we know it.

When you think about cartoonist journalists, the first (and probably only) name that comes to mind is almost always Joe Sacco. And for good reason, because the man has been using his cartoonist skills in the service of in-depth reporting for over 20 years. This week, Mike & Greg take a look at “Journalism”, a collection of his shorter reports over a 10-year period from such assignments as Iraq, The Hague, Gaza, India, Malta, and the Caucasus. It’s a 200-page hardcover that provokes more thought and questions in that page count than most OGNs at twice the size. The lads try and come at them from a few different angles, ranging from Sacco’s cartooning chops, how objective a reporter like Sacco can (or should) be, what advantages cartooning has over more naturalistic means of capturing information, why color should or shouldn’t be used in Sacco’s work, who influenced him, and much much more on this week’s episode

The book club discussions return after a year-long hiatus with this look at two similar but divergent Elseworld tales from DC Comics. Featuring powerhouse art teams (Mignola/Russell and Jones/Jones III) with undeniably appealing high concepts (Batman vs Jack the Ripper & Batman vs Dracula), both books stand as templates for how to do Elsewhere stories right...but take completely different paths getting there. Throw in a mystery third book and you have a talk covering such topics as the lasting impact of Zorro on Batman, Elseworlds vs ‘What Ifs?’, scary sexy body horror heroics, the refreshing naïveté of Bruce Wayne, red herrings & red sons, 19th century Gotham newspapers running front page stories in Kryptonese, and more.

This episode originally aired August 16th, 2016.

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 Mean Streets-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 episode originally aired February 19th, 2015.

Although 1993 was not far into the decade, the year "Marvels" was published in some ways saw the peak of its legendary excess: gimmick covers, spinoff glut, character assassinating revamps, and enough grit & grime to block out the sun. But in the middle of all that came a small 4-issue period piece miniseries, from a writer no one cared about and an artist no one knew, with a clarity that rang through the clamor. Mike & Greg take a long look at that Busiek/Ross work, as well as the 2007 followup "Eye of the Camera", to see if it still holds up over 20 years later. What makes that miniseries so unique, even among other stories like "Kingdom Come" or "Earth X"? What does Alex Ross not get enough credit for? What happened to the originally planned "Marvels II"? If someone ripped a gash in the Rocky Mountains the size of the Grand Canyon, and then fixed it on live TV, would anybody care? What simple suggestion did Tom DeFalco make to Busiek that crystallized the whole story for him? All that and more in this week's episode!

This episode was originally broadcast on March 16, 2016

Mike & Greg focus on a work that took home two 2015 Ignatz Awards (for Outstanding Graphic Novel and Outstanding Comic) AND made Publishers Weekly’s list of the best books of 2015: “The Oven” by Sophie Goldstein! When Syd & Eric leave their sheltered, regulated lives in a domed city to start a family off-the-grid, circumstances quickly become more than they anticipated. Have they escaped one dead-end only to find themselves in another? Is a fresh start possible under these demanding conditions? In only 80 pages, Golstein manages to tell a story both concise & expansive simultaneously, giving the lads a lot of material to consider. And you know they can't discuss an Adhouse Books release without getting into the particulars of the book’s presentation, especially one as striking as “The Oven”. Mike flexes some printing knowledge muscles as he breaks down how Goldstein & Adhouse were able to make this book look like nothing else on the shelf. All that and more on this episode!
