Robots From Tomorrow!

Charting Josh Dysart's career path in comics isn't easy. The writer has worked for a wide swath of publishers, from Dark Horse to Image to DC Comics to Vertigo to Valiant and points in-between, and gone where few other creators dare to tread, regardless of medium. Dysart has been all over the map, figuratively AND literally. So how do you pick just one topic to focus on when you get the chance to sit down with him? The answer to that question brings you today's episode: a chat that Greg had with Josh Dysart at this past weekend's Baltimore Comic Con.

They say nobody’s perfect, and that is certainly the case with Jaime Hernandez’s most popular creation Maggie. Over the last 30-plus years, he has shown us how flawed, and yet perfectly realized, a character she is. Mike and Greg catch up with Maggie in Hernandez’s latest graphic novel “The Love Bunglers” as she tries to find happiness with her on-again, off-again love interest Ray. The amount of story, craft, and emotion packed into this 110-page work is astounding, and the only thing keeping the guys from still talking about it is the fear of spoiling too much of this (or any other) year’s best comics. Whether you are a complete newcomer to Hernandez and his work, or have been following Maggie, Ray, Hopey, and the rest of the Love and Rockets cast for decades, this is a must-own book.

 

This episode originally aired June 2014.

The comics prognostication continues! Flipping to the front of the catalog, Mike & Greg’s attention focuses on Diamond’s top-tier publishers: Dark Horse! DC! Image! IDW! Marvel! All that, plus Mignola & company dodge a few swastika-shaped PR bullets, Doomsday Clock might or might not be the trainwreck derailing the Rebirth express, a Ross Andru appreciation, judging Image books by covers, one host’s real-time first reactions to Marvel’s ‘Legacy’ offerings, and more as the lads wrap up another trek through the “Previews” catalog!

Another month, another “Previews” catalog to dissect! As always, Mike & Greg start things off with the diverse Green section, also known as the largest section of the book. What's coming to comic shops in November that catches the lads’ fancies? Charles Burns! Battle Angel Alita! Paul Kirchner! Double shots of Forsman with a Fiffe chaser! Scott Morse! Fence! Bond! Tank Girl! All that, plus what the hell is up with Boundless (seriously, we're asking here…), ranking the hierarchy of sins from sex to drugs to violence, which epic-lengthed Adam Hughes series is finally collected, Art Clokey’s masterpiece (that's Gumby, dammit!), the Tao of Tanks, a property crossover so obvious we're stunned to be stunned by it, and more. Definitely something for everyone in the top half of this two-part “Previews” walkthrough!
