How do you follow up a juggernaut like "Scott Pilgrim?" Six volumes, a major motion picture, tons of awards… the task of coming up with the next thing after that has to be a daunting one. But after 4 years, O’Malley answered that question with “Seconds,” an OGN about a young restaurateur given the chance to fix the mistakes of the past with the help of some magic mushrooms. Sounds like just the thing you’d expect from O’Malley, right? It is...and it isn’t. Mike & Greg take a look at the latest work from this cartoonist and his assembled team to find out if this book, like any great meal, is worth coming back to for more.

After 37 issues, to call Matt Kindt's "Mind MGMT" an 'accomplishment' almost feels like an understatement. Kindt not only wrote, penciled, inked, colored and lettered the entire series, he also provided covers, back-up strips, supplemental material, a litany of secrets, and fake back page ads for every issue. With "New MGMT" #1, the final issue of the series, hitting shelves next week, we wanted to take a bit of time to talk with Kindt about coming to the end of such a monumental project. There's also a bit of chatter about his new series "Department H," revisiting old works, and thinking about Spider-Man while falling asleep.

Another Previews catalog showed up on their doorsteps, so it’s time to gaze into the tomorrow of October 2015 and see what catches Mike and Greg’s eyes. One-Punch Man! Claymore! Titan (not "Attack on...")! Iscariot! Robin: Son of Batman! Prez only getting a single term? Weirdworld! Kelley Jones on Spingebob! Lumberjanes! Magnetic Press's Love! The Maxx: Artist Edition! The Comic Book Story of Beer! Junji Ito's Cats! Alternative Comics (again...the publisher, not the category)! All that, plus some thoughts on the Morrison-led Heavy Metal's future, just what a Duncan Fregredo comic from 1990 would look like, whether or not there's a tipping point for Image Comics' line output, why Tim Drake had such a great set-up as Robin, the varying styles of small-a 'artist editions', and so much more!

This week we're bringing you the second of our two HeroesCon 2015 episodes: a conversation between Michel Fiffe & Klaus Janson. They may be from two different generations of the industry, but make no mistake: these guys are of one mind when it comes to making great comics. And they aren't afraid to speak that mind about it, either. 

Although jokingly referred to by many at the show before the panel as an excuse to sit around and talk about how awesome Klaus Janson is for an hour, the conversation quickly settles into a mutual exploration of each creator's work process and outlook on comics. Topics range from Copra intentions, where storytelling stands in today's comics, the secret to career longevity, what problem Janson was told he had as a creator (and whether or not he agreed), Charlton's printing quality (or lack thereof), the pros & cons of the monthly grind on creators, the possibility of a real Janson/Fiffe collaboration, and much more.
