It's been twenty years since Marvel launched its "Marvel Knights" imprint -- an event so big the lads are taking two episodes to cover it! This week focuses on the imprint itself, and the who/what/when/where/why of how it came to be and what it set in motion for Marvel as a company and comics as a whole. Plus, how did it measure up to other publisher imprints, including the recent Young Animal over at DC. All that and more as Mike and Greg connect the dots on how Joe Quesada & Jimmy Palmiotti changed comics as we know it. 

Next week: the comics themselves!

When you think about cartoonist journalists, the first (and probably only) name that comes to mind is almost always Joe Sacco. And for good reason, because the man has been using his cartoonist skills in the service of in-depth reporting for over 20 years. This week, Mike & Greg take a look at “Journalism”, a collection of his shorter reports over a 10-year period from such assignments as Iraq, The Hague, Gaza, India, Malta, and the Caucasus. It’s a 200-page hardcover that provokes more thought and questions in that page count than most OGNs at twice the size. The lads try and come at them from a few different angles, ranging from Sacco’s cartooning chops, how objective a reporter like Sacco can (or should) be, what advantages cartooning has over more naturalistic means of capturing information, why color should or shouldn’t be used in Sacco’s work, who influenced him, and much much more on this week’s episode

Mike and Greg dive deep into the first issue of Slott & Pichelli's run on "Fantastic Four", taking its measure both as a single issue but also its place in the grander FF tapestry. Does Slott have the chops to handle The World's Greatest Comic Magazine? What particular aspect of Pichelli's work really made an impression on the lads? Should this really have been an issue of "Marvel Two-in-One"? Which of the other "Fantastic Four" #1's does this share the closest resemblance to? All that, plus favorite issues of the past, how hothead is too hothead for Johnny, series blindspots, and more!

This episode originally aired June 17, 2017.

The book club discussions return after a year-long hiatus with this look at two similar but divergent Elseworld tales from DC Comics. Featuring powerhouse art teams (Mignola/Russell and Jones/Jones III) with undeniably appealing high concepts (Batman vs Jack the Ripper & Batman vs Dracula), both books stand as templates for how to do Elsewhere stories right...but take completely different paths getting there. Throw in a mystery third book and you have a talk covering such topics as the lasting impact of Zorro on Batman, Elseworlds vs ‘What Ifs?’, scary sexy body horror heroics, the refreshing naïveté of Bruce Wayne, red herrings & red sons, 19th century Gotham newspapers running front page stories in Kryptonese, and more.

This episode originally aired August 16th, 2016.

With the August 24th release of Twomorrows' newest comics book "Comic Book Fever", Greg got a chance to chat with writer George Khoury about this love letter to the comics and comics culture of his youth. From his survey of British art talent in “True Brit”, to his benchmark work untangling the Miracleman legacy and legal history in “Kimota! The Miracleman Companion”, to his extensive interview and contextualization of one of comics’ greatest creators in “The Extraordinary Works of Alan Moore”, Khoury has proven himself as one of the pillars of the Twomorrows publishing line and a must-read when it comes to understanding and celebrating the medium we all enjoy. Nowhere is that combination more evident than in "Fever”.

Celebrating the last decade of the Bronze Age, “Fever” touches on so many aspects of comics and comics culture from 1976 to 1986, that if you were a comics fan from that era and DIDN’T see something you recognized and remembered fondly...maybe you weren’t actually a fan.

He and Greg talk about not only his books, but also which DC artist was a spitting image of Mean Streets-era Martin Scorsese, how likely we are to see an updated volume of "Kimota!", why people shouldn't be surprised when poking the bear doesn't put the bear in the best mood, and more on this laidback, free-wheeling episode!

Although 1993 was not far into the decade, the year "Marvels" was published in some ways saw the peak of its legendary excess: gimmick covers, spinoff glut, character assassinating revamps, and enough grit & grime to block out the sun. But in the middle of all that came a small 4-issue period piece miniseries, from a writer no one cared about and an artist no one knew, with a clarity that rang through the clamor. Mike & Greg take a long look at that Busiek/Ross work, as well as the 2007 followup "Eye of the Camera", to see if it still holds up over 20 years later. What makes that miniseries so unique, even among other stories like "Kingdom Come" or "Earth X"? What does Alex Ross not get enough credit for? What happened to the originally planned "Marvels II"? If someone ripped a gash in the Rocky Mountains the size of the Grand Canyon, and then fixed it on live TV, would anybody care? What simple suggestion did Tom DeFalco make to Busiek that crystallized the whole story for him? All that and more in this week's episode!

This episode was originally broadcast on March 16, 2016

Mike & Greg focus on a work that took home two 2015 Ignatz Awards (for Outstanding Graphic Novel and Outstanding Comic) AND made Publishers Weekly’s list of the best books of 2015: “The Oven” by Sophie Goldstein! When Syd & Eric leave their sheltered, regulated lives in a domed city to start a family off-the-grid, circumstances quickly become more than they anticipated. Have they escaped one dead-end only to find themselves in another? Is a fresh start possible under these demanding conditions? In only 80 pages, Golstein manages to tell a story both concise & expansive simultaneously, giving the lads a lot of material to consider. And you know they can't discuss an Adhouse Books release without getting into the particulars of the book’s presentation, especially one as striking as “The Oven”. Mike flexes some printing knowledge muscles as he breaks down how Goldstein & Adhouse were able to make this book look like nothing else on the shelf. All that and more on this 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!

Keep the sports-buzz going with this week's episode about the state of sports comics in America! Why don't we have more (given the popularity of sports in this country), and who's doing a good job with the titles we do have? What is it about manga that can make cooking and chess into fan-favorite subjects? Is there a difference between sport and competition? How does the influx of comics in the classrooms influence what arenas publishers should be entering if they want to succeed at the sports comics game? All that, plus Mike gives his thoughts on the mood of Philadelphia at recording time, one day before the Eagles' victory.

Dave Chisholm may not have been in the comics industry long enough to achieve the 'rock star' status of someone like Jim Lee or Paul Pope, but in terms of creating both comics AND music, he's a band apart from just about every other creator out there. Because when you write and draw your own graphic novel ("Instrumental" from Z2 Comics in May), compose/perform a companion soundtrack to be released simultaneously WITH that graphic novel, AND have another full-length album of music from the band you front being released around the same time (Talking Under Water self-titled debut album on April 28th, 2017) . . . what other label is there? Decide for yourself after listening to this interview, where Greg talks with Dave about process both musical and sequential, the difficulty of getting the essence of sound across a silent medium, and more. Where else could you hear talk about Frank Quitely, Kevin Nowlan, and Brian Eno in the same discussion?

And if that wasn't enough, you can hear of clips "Celebration" and "Death and the Narrator" (from "Instrumental"'s upcoming score) in the episode itself, PLUS the full "Celebration" track from the Multiversity Comics episode post page!

BONUS: Here are the two other non-"Instrumental" pieces of music mentioned in the episode:

"Tossing and Turning" from the Tossing and Turning EP by Talking Under Water  

"Calligraphy" from Calligraphy by Dave Chisholm

Earl Tubb may not speak particularly softly, but the main character of the new Image series Southern Bastards ends up brandishing one hell of a stick after returning to his Alabama hometown to put family affairs in order. Jasons Latour and Aaron make this book one part Southern Gothic, one part Walking Tall (the Joe Don Baker version), one part Lone Star, and all parts fantastic. Mike & Greg take swings, between talk of fried apple pie and confectionary delights, at trying to do justice to this book and its look at a Southern lifestyle at once mundane and terrifying. Find out what themes and traits this book shares with Aaron's classic series Scalped, as well as how to look at the work fourth-dimensionally, the benefits of uncluttered plot progression, the differences between Europeans and Americans when looking at America, and what US town was nuked back in the 1960's (albeit ineptly).

Desire, thought, and action. In the followup to his acclaimed 1998 graphic novel "Hicksville," cartoonist Dylan Horrocks uses one of that book's supporting characters' encounter with a magic drawing implement to not only tell an engaging story, but also engage with those three components of the human experience. "Magic Pen" may have been 10 years in the making, but it still showcases one of comics' best thinkers trying to reconcile with themes very much at the forefront of today's comics culture: the power of fantasy, the ease comics can express those creators' desires (both positive & negative) to the audience, the effect they have on a growing audience of different-minded or impressionable readers. There's a lot to unpack and some sensitive subject matter, and Mike & Greg try their best to do it without offending anyone. There might be a few more pauses than usual, but that's just because words are being extra-parsed. Find out if they succeed in avoiding any hot-rail catastrophes in this episode!
