For this 700th episode, the lads bring you something old AND something new!
Things kick off with Greg talking to Multiversity alum and current comics writer Chad Bowers about his mini-series Snake-Eyes: Dead Game, drawn by comics legend and world's most energetic human Rob Liefeld.
The conversation then expands to get Chad's take on the broader G.I. Joe franchise: do the cartoons still hold up? Does Larry Hama's original Real American Hero run deserve to be mentioned in the same conversations as Claremont's X-Men and Wolfman's New Teen Titans when discussing definitive long-term comics runs of the 1980's? Can the franchise survive without Duke (a scenario G.I. Joe: The Movie tried to bring about)? And speaking of the feature film, is the opening title scene the best intro of the 1980's OR the greatest three minutes and seven seconds ever committed to celluoid?
Following that is a flashback to January 4, 2017 and a conversation Mike had with Hellboy creator and someone mentioned in at least half the lads' conversations over the last 699 episode: Mike Mignola. The original post described the interview as "kicking off with a discussion on collaborating on such a huge canvas and continuing on into some very interesting places".
So kick back, relax, and help Mike and Greg celebrate another milestone of funnybook talk by listening to this 700th episode of the show!
