When you go into the same field as a successful parent, there are inevitably going to be comparisons about how you measure up to their accomplishments. When you're Brennan Wagner and that parent is Matt Wagner, the accomplishments you're measuring up against are numerous. But Brennan hasn't let that stop him. In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone dealing with it with more grace and humor than Brennan. Greg got a chance to finally talk to Brennan about not only his current work on the "Django/Zorro" series written by his father and drawn by Esteve Polls, but what it was like growing up in a family that also included just-retired legendary editor Diana Schutz and editor at Legendary (and Dark Horse, Oni, DC...) Bob Shreck! Brennan drops some truth bombs about being a colorist in this industry, just how many Eisners Dave Stewart has, his own art preferences and influences, and the joys of home-cooked meats. All that and more on today's episode!

Can we ever go home again? It's a question so many creators ask themselves when they revisit work from their earlier days. Mike & Greg take a look at how Toriyama has cracked that particular code with "Jaco", a book that touches on several themes and tones from the manga-ka's early "Dragon Ball" days while still letting him bring his mastery of craft to bear. A funny, adventurous romp, the titular Jaco is a super elite Galactic Patrolman sent to Earth to await the coming of a terrible monster… but he manages to sideswipe the Moon on his way in and crashes next to a small island. Maybe 'super elite' is supposed to be ironic? Find out why "Jaco" is a wonderful standalone manga story with subtle ties to Toriyama's later works, what manga tropes the cartoonist manages to celebrate and subvert simultaneously, how 'adorable' is a perfect descriptive for this book, which Neal Adams work gets compared to "Jaco", and a whole lot more in this week's episode!

Thirty-eight years of continuous weekly publication has given Judge Dredd fans a huge back catalog of stories to choose from. Mike & Greg flex some Multiver-City One muscles in this episode and take an in-depth look at 'America', the shattering tale by Dredd co-creator John Wagner and artist Colin MacNeil that makes absolutely clear what separates Dredd from other comics action heroes. What makes it Wagner's personal favorite and the top of so many "Best of Dredd" lists? How accessible is it to new readers? Are the sequels (1996's 'Fading of the Light' and 2006's 'Cadet') any good? Why isn't Colin MacNeil a bigger name? Who was Victor Jara? What does an apology from Judge Dredd sound like, and what do you have to do to get one? All that and tons more in this week's episode!
