Robots From Tomorrow!

This episode was originally broadcast on July 22, 2015.

While sorting through the digital bric-a-brac that litters the subterranean RFT recording studio, we came across something very special buried deep on a hard drive. Back in December 2011, the one and only Jack Davis was the guest of honor at the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival. Fantagraphics had just released "Drawing American Pop Culture," a collection of Davis' art spanning his long and varied career, and the artist himself made the trip from Georgia to Brooklyn so he could sign copies and shake as many hands as possible. He took a little time away from the hustle of the festival to have a seat on stage and discuss his career and art.

Moderated by Gary Groth and Drew Friedman, the conversation you're about to hear touches on all aspect's of Davis' work, including his time at Mad and EC, as well as his commercial work producing magazine covers and movie posters. We're very excited to have found this, and even more excited to share it with all of you.

After covering the imprint’s origin & history, as well as its impact on the broader comics landscape, the lads finally get around to talking about the best aspect of Marvel Knights: the comics themselves! From the flagship Daredevil to the award-winning Inhumans to the culturally savvy Black Panther to the let’s-call-it-misguided first Punisher miniseries, there’s no lack of discussion material.

And the topics don’t stop there! From later series like The Sentry, Marvel Boy, Black Widow, Hard Knocks and the eponymous Dixon-Barreto book, to why the line couldn’t shake its “street level” vibe and what that means, to why David Mack is twice the comics artist you thought he was, to Greg complimenting Jae Lee and Mike complimenting Steve Dillion, to why Frank Castle and Joe Dredd are brothers from different mothers...there’s something for every one in this episode!
