For the first of two episodes featuring content from HeroesCon 2015, Greg managed to put together an interview trifecta featuring Corin (Batmite) Howell, Christopher (High Crimes) Sebela, and Frank J. (Five Ghosts) Barbiere. The talks cover new books, old favorites, a beloved 80's action film, artist communes, teaching what you're preaching, and more. One artist, two writers, three great conversations from North Carolina to your ears via the magic of the internet.

Between self-publishing and small-press publishing is a place where a lot of talented cartoonists are finding themselves. Too big for one but not big enough for another, they can find themselves without a solid foundation to send their work off from to the larger readership. But luckily, one of those cartoonists decided it was time to do something about that. Mike & Greg take a look at several 2015 releases from Box Brown’s Retrofit Comics (“An Entity Observes All Things”, “Ink for Beginners”, and “Mowgli’s Mirror”) as they shine the RFT spotlight on Retrofit Comics as a publisher. What’s their angle? How can you find their books? Why was their release of “Prison Planet” #7 so controversial? Given their size and roster, what can they give you that Marvel or DC can’t? All that, plus what it’s like to have a timeshare in independent comics, just how likely Greg is to get a tattoo, and more!

200 episodes! Great Googily-Moogily! Surely the lads have a star-studded anniversary extravaganza planned, yes? Well, not quite. Another Previews catalog showed up on their doorsteps, so instead it’s time to gaze into the tomorrow of August 2015 and see what catches Mike and Greg’s eyes. (You don't get to 200 episodes in less than two years by deviating too much from the schedule...) Luke Cage punches the ocean! Gallery Editions from P. Craig Russell AND Stan Sakai! The Bozz Chronicles! Prez! Ducks galore! Hip-Hop Family Trees! My Hero Academia (plus some other Shonen Jump talk)! Breathtaker! Two Brothers! DC HC/DVD! March Grand Prix! Smart choices for The Usual Gang of Idiots! Plus, how comics fan can live in Okinawa for three years and know less about manga than a fan who never left the East Coast, which Dynamite book is Mike recommending, what DC move gives Greg all the feels, and so much 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!
