Robots From Tomorrow!

For today's episode the guys dive headfirst into Brandon Graham's King City. Set in a world of Cat Masters, alien races and mythic demons, King City is Graham's first long form comics work. It's a title that nearly fell victim to the Tokyo Pop implosion, but after a time in limbo, was revived and completed at Image Comics. The collected edition is as thick as a phonebook, with plenty of back-ups and back matter to sweeten the pot. Mike and Greg agree that this is a must read, and woth a place on any comic reader's shelf.

Greg chats it up with Joe Keatinge, fresh off of this month's Image Expo, and you'd better have a comfy chair to listen to this one in, because it is a behemoth! Over two and a half hours of comics talk straight from the man who brought you Hell Yeah!, Glory, and your soon-to-be-favorite title Shutter (announced at the Expo with artist Leila Del Duca), Joe is candid as always, and speaks his mind about Image, Marvel, DC, and a whole bunch of comics on either side of the Atlantic. Find out at what age he read Maus (it's a single digit), what he thought the biggest news out of the Expo was, what his original plans for Morbius were, and what event nearly collapsed the entire comic book industry. All this and more, plus updates on as many of the 10 books he has coming out in April 2014 as legally allowed: Shutter, What If: Age of Ultron, MK: Hulk, Glory HC, and more. AND there's a special segment after the outro with Joe just after he interviewed Jim Steranko at last year's Collector's Con!

Everything old is new again! Mike and Greg decide to tackle Bob Fingerman's 90's alt-comic fave from Fantagraphics, recently re-released in oversized hardcover form from Image Comics. Greg went new school and read the HC, while Mike went old school and busted out the FB trades. But it's all the same stories, right? Ummmm.... yes and no. For the new release, Fingerman (by his own admission) pulled a "Lucas" and re-worked the old material to bring it all up to his current standards. Did that help? Hurt? How does this series stand against the test of time, and what about Fingerman's new MINIMUM WAGE series debuting this month? And what's it like for two people to talk about a book they've both read and not read at the same time? Give a listen and find out!
