Robots From Tomorrow!

Greg finally got around to picking up something Mike had been recommending for years, so it's time for another free-form discussion! This week's show finds the lads picking apart some of the recent Grant Morrison-helmed Heavy Metal magazines and reflecting on both its legacy and future. Then the pendulum swings from West to East, as Mike fills us in on the particular brand of Euro-sheened Ito-esque body horror manga that is the work of Shintaro Kago. All that, plus heads in flight, beach towels that might get you arrested, Gerhard minus Dave Sim, poster sets discounted to $4000, and Greg can't seem to find his phone. All that and more on this week's episode!

Another month, another “Previews” catalog to dissect! As always, Mike & Greg start things off with the diverse Green and Purple sections, covering the majority of publishers in one fell swoop. What's coming to comic shops in July (or later) that catches the lads’ fancies? Plus, Moomin praise abounds, the lads realize Alex di Campi is writing for the upcoming Blade Runner animated series, and Greg inadvertently channels his inner Les Nessman. Definitely something for everyone in the top half of this two-part “Previews” walkthrough!

This episode was originally broadcast on May 1, 2014.

The book that launched the black & white boom of the 1980's, spawned a thousand imitators, spun off into every conceivable media, and taught millions of kids the names of four Renaissance artists is the subject of this week's episode.

While Mike and Greg are ostensibly looking at the "Return to New York" arc of the Mirage-era Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, like everything else Turtles-related, the talk mutates into a green-skinned juggernaut. Find out how the IDW continuity tracks with the original Mirage series, which creator did what on any issue, what prompted the 'Guest Creator' era, why there are some issues IDW can't reprint, and just how much greenbacks Eastman & Laird were making during their heyday.

Straight from the sewers to your ears via our recording studio deep beneath the Earth's surface, the Turtle goodness is just a click away!
