Rereading comics that sit in the box or on the shelf for long periods of time, binge reading, single issue stories, Valerian and Moebius being available in English start this one off. Pullapalooza finishes it out.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Thin Lizzy
Since Don Liked talking about Man-Wolf last episode, Al was forced to talk about the confusing history of the Bronze Age C list characters Tigra The Were-Woman, Beware The Claws Of The Cat, And Hellcat.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Five Man Electrical Band
The gang is back! Don, Al and Dallas are joined at the roundtable by our good friend and fellow comics enthusiast, JIM JOHNSON!
We talk shop as usual in the confines of Al’s underground fortress, and between passionate debates about Don Heck and Sal Buscema’s artwork, we discuss the merits and downright quirkiness of Public Access television (a lost art), Dallas waxes poetic about his newfound love for Warren Ellis. Jim and Don get in a fistfight over the Silver Surfer’s various incarnations, Al professes his love of “pedestrian” artists, and Jim gushes over the likes of Ernie Chan, Tim Truman, and his preference of heavily rendered artists.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: It’s The Dungeon Boss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Al starts the discussion off with what he calls “The Kirby Factor,” and seeing things through different eyes as you get older. Don brings up comic book publisher’s house styles and artist’s comfort zones, and continues to talk about a few books he read and brings the show well past the one hour mark.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Superdrag
Neal Adams Was A High Water Mark.
Aaaand…. welcome back!!!! We actually made it to Episode 4! Rook is MIA today, apparently he thought taking his family to Disney was more important than talking comics. Al finally rejoins the fold, as he and Don beat up Dallas and take over the show for a lengthy talk on Doom Patrol, the Savage Sword of Conan, DC 100 Page Spectaculars and more! They discuss their favorite artists and creators, including Bob Brown, Dick Dillon, the amazing Don Heck, Frank Robbins, Irv Novick, Jerry Grandenetti, Tony Tallarico, Mike Sekowsky, Ramona Fradon and Bruno Premiani! Leave a comment below, and tell us how much you freakin love us!!!
Bruno Premiani one of Al’s favorites.
