Robots From Tomorrow!

Greg chats it up with Joe Keatinge, fresh off of this month's Image Expo, and you'd better have a comfy chair to listen to this one in, because it is a behemoth! Over two and a half hours of comics talk straight from the man who brought you Hell Yeah!, Glory, and your soon-to-be-favorite title Shutter (announced at the Expo with artist Leila Del Duca), Joe is candid as always, and speaks his mind about Image, Marvel, DC, and a whole bunch of comics on either side of the Atlantic. Find out at what age he read Maus (it's a single digit), what he thought the biggest news out of the Expo was, what his original plans for Morbius were, and what event nearly collapsed the entire comic book industry. All this and more, plus updates on as many of the 10 books he has coming out in April 2014 as legally allowed: Shutter, What If: Age of Ultron, MK: Hulk, Glory HC, and more. AND there's a special segment after the outro with Joe just after he interviewed Jim Steranko at last year's Collector's Con!

Everything old is new again! Mike and Greg decide to tackle Bob Fingerman's 90's alt-comic fave from Fantagraphics, recently re-released in oversized hardcover form from Image Comics. Greg went new school and read the HC, while Mike went old school and busted out the FB trades. But it's all the same stories, right? Ummmm.... yes and no. For the new release, Fingerman (by his own admission) pulled a "Lucas" and re-worked the old material to bring it all up to his current standards. Did that help? Hurt? How does this series stand against the test of time, and what about Fingerman's new MINIMUM WAGE series debuting this month? And what's it like for two people to talk about a book they've both read and not read at the same time? Give a listen and find out!

This week the guys dive into a work that, courtesy of the good folks at Humanoids, was translated and released in English earlier this year. From the incredibly inventive minds of Pierre Gabus and Romuald Reutimann, District 14 is a comic that pushes convention and genre into all sorts of new places. Part noir, part sci-fi epic, and with a cast of both humans and funny animals, District 14 is the tale of an elephant named Michael who has recently immigrated to Distict 14 and is confronted with all the drama and absurdity contained within its walls. Nothing is ever as simple as it seems, especially when it comes to Michael and his newly minted friend Hector McKeagh, a beaver who is also the most notorious reporter in town. District 14 is a comic that can work on a purely fantasy level, while also smartly commenting on some of today's social issues. Wealth, corruption, fame, and the press are just a few examples of the topics reflected on in this work. This volume, the first in a series, is well worth every comics fan's time. The concept and writing is exceptional, and the art is gorgeous. It's available digitally as well as in hardcover, and it comes with the RFT gold seal of approval.
