Don and Dr. Morbius from parts unknown (Al) host the official “inker” episode! They begin by talking about how B-Movies were made, and drool over the all-encompassing glory of Krispy Kreme donuts and the subtle, understated appeal of Krystal burgers.
Talking About The Slow Robot A Go Go Podcast Started Everything Off
Then Went Into A Discussion Of Intentions And Bad Work
And then it’s inker time! The boys discuss the merits of full and partial pencil layouts and the integral job of the inker, and how many artists inked their own work. Don sneaks in Sergio Aragones’ Groo and Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo, two of his favorite books. They even mention Mick Gray and Terry Austin, two of Dallas’ favorite inkers, and then Al proposes a challenge to Don to ink his art!!!! Don recites the story of how Howard Chaykin helped J.H. Williams III get into the comics industry, and gushes over Chaykin’s Buck Rogers run.
Al gives Don his collection of Omaha the Cat Dancer and epic tales of underground comics ensues with discussions about The First Kingdom by Jack Katz, among others. Al gives his thoughts on the progression of underground/counter-culture comics (like the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers) into indie comics (such as Star Reach), and Don explains why Fat Freddy’s Cat is better than Garfield.
