131 | Twilight Man, Jeff Smith, Archie, Roy Thomas, Sex Criminals And Walking Dead

Our host Dallas is joined by Rook, Don and Al to discuss anything and everything related to comics. Rook pulls out a gem from his childhood called Twilight Man, Don mentions TUKI which begins a nostalgic discussion about Jeff Smith and BoneAl talks Archie (Archie Vs. Predator, All New Archie) and the wonderful artist of Afterlife With Archie, Francesco Francavilla.

Dallas reminisces about his favorite Alex Ross print of the Uncanny X-Men, and Roy Thomas is name-dropped. Dallas reviews the wonderful Sex Criminals by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky. And, of course, there is talk of The Walking Dead and the new AMC show, Fear The Walking Dead.

78 | Reworking Old Comic Stories

Don and Al sneak in an episode and continue their Atlas comics talk. This leads to a discussion about fashion and reworking old stories in comics.
Don ruminates on the short-lived King Comics, and the beautiful painted covers of Dell and Gold Key comics. After divulging the Kirby Curse, the boys talk about workaholic artists, the guys that never stuck out, but deserve appreciation, like Dan Spiegel and Ross Andru.
Other topics include: The greatness of Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, Bruno Premiani, the Best Kirby Inkers, Michael Moorcock’s Elric, Comic Shop News, and Don’s gut-wrenching reaction to 1984 by George Orwell.
