Robots From Tomorrow!

Another month, another “Previews” catalog to dissect! As always, Mike & Greg start things off with the diverse Green section, covering the majority of publishers in one fell swoop. What's coming to comic shops in October (or later) that catches the lads’ fancies? Junji Ito's Frankenstein! Disney Masters at Fantagraphics! Rolled & Told! Merry Men! Tillie Walden's "On A Sunbeam"! The Queen of Kenosha! Mega Man Megamix! The Lewis/Ayden/Powell followup, RUN - now with added Afua Richardson!

All that, plus the glory of the Saturday morning cartoon block, Mike & Greg's favorite events from American Gladiators, comics by non-comics people, and more. Definitely something for everyone in the top half of this two-part “Previews” walkthrough!

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!
