This week we flip (and click) through the latest issue of Previews to see what’s coming up in January that you should keep an eye out for. Considering the magnitude of such a task, we asked THE HOUR COSMIC’s Brian Salvatore to stay a while and give us a hand. But before that, we run Brian through a gauntlet of questions about his show and Multiversity Comics in general, as this is the first time we’ve actually had, on the show, a representative of the website we recommend week in and week out. Hear his answers and see if we are able to make it through the comic industry’s catalog of wonders without stopping to pick the low-hanging fruit of controversy from a distinguishedly competitive publisher.

With the release of Action Presidents #1 this week, we take this opportunity to bring you a chat with the creative team behind that book, as well as Action Philosophers, Comic Book Comics, and a whole host of other titles from publishers as diverse as Valiant, Marvel, IDW, and Clarkson Potter: Fred van Lente and Ryan Dunlavey! Greg managed to carve out some time from their busy schedules to talk past, present, and future with the duo. And since technical difficulties have presented this talk from being broadcast since its March 2013 recording, their future is our present! None of that pesky waiting around for stuff to happen....it already has! All manner of van Lente/Dunlavey work is discussed, including the aforementioned edu-tainment titles, as well as Ryan's cook book with vegetarian chef Amanda Cohen (Dirt Candy) and, of course, Action Presidents! Bon appetit!

Rounding out our coverage of New York Comic Con 2013 is this trio of interviews with Tony Fleecs, Corrina Bechko, and Gabriel Hardman. Greg managed to squirrel away a few minutes with each of these creators to find out what they have worked on that you should check out, and what they have coming up for you to look out for. It turned out to be quite the Noah's Ark of an episode, as talk ranged from the My Little Pony juggernaut to Planet of the Apes to Kinski (which is named after a dog, not the actor). Throw in some non-porn porn, dastardly doings in San Francisco, and a special guest appearance by Ron Marz for a you-are-there experience like no other podcast brings you!

At this year's New York Comic Con Mike had the opportunity to sit and chat with Paul Pope about his latest work Battling Boy. They talk about the story, writing for an all-ages audience, and the influences that went into it.

A podcasting first: this episode debuts on October 31st and yet makes absolutely no mention to the accompanying holiday! Not how we roll. But what we do talk about is Battling Boy, the new OGN from writer/artist Paul Pope with colors by Hilary Sycamore. Greg and Mike rave and rave about this...wait a minute…Greg didn’t like it? Are you serious? Is that even allowed in comics podcasting? Is this the last episode of Robots From Tomorrow? No, but this episode does feature some real-time opinion-evolution. Give it a spin to see if you agree with where the duo start this conversation and where it ends up. Also, a quick shout-out to Steve Niles and how you can give Steve a hand and get some cool comics in the process!

Robots From Tomorrow is back from New York Comic Con and ready to bring you, the listener, the inside scoop on one of the largest comic conventions in the country! And not without personal risk, as Mike battles through a delayed “con crud” reaction that Greg managed to somehow avoid (possibly due to his junk-food-fortified constitution). But that won’t stop you from getting to hear about the Image/Mutliversity party, talking with industry giant Mike Richardson, just where the hell the DC booth was (spoiler: not at NYCC), how to plan your activities effectively, and so many other things. Shouts are outed, and news items from IDW, Archie, Dark Horse, DC, and Marvel are discussed. Couldn’t make it to the show? Spend an hour with us and you’ll feel like you were there all four days (without the “con crud”)!
