Robots From Tomorrow!

This episode was originally broadcast on June 22, 2016.

Our month-long look at Dark Horse Comics continues, both over at Multiversity Comics and here on this show with today's overview of the publisher’s various anthology offerings. Yes, we’ve all heard of Dark Horse Presents . . . but what about Mayhem? Or Deadline USA? Or Cheval Noir? The lads dig deep on this one to give credit where credit is due for Dark Horse’s commitment to delivering many different kinds of comics in single-issue packages.

Why was there no manga anthology? Who was Toren Smith? What made Dark Horse Comics publish Dark Horse Comics? Which Alan Moore collaborator did Greg think made an appearance in ‘Sin City’ during its initial serialization in DHP? When did Ed Brubaker share shelf space with . . . Dr. Giggles? How did ‘The Masque’ wind up with a spelling change and a new lease on life? The answers to all those questions and more on today’s episode!

With HeroesCon coming up in a few weeks, we look back on past shows with this panel Greg moderated that was originally posted on July 7, 2016:

This week brings a conversation between two of the most important and influential comics artists of the last half-century: Neal Adams and Bill Sienkiewicz. Greg recently had the opportunity to "moderate" a panel featuring the pair (their first solo panel together), but as you can imagine when Neal gets behind a microphone, it quickly developed a life of its own. Both creators shared stories, insight, and surprises from their decades-spanning careers in comics. A more tightly packed hour of comics conversation you would be hard-pressed to find, so tune in and enjoy this panel from last month's HeroesCon.
