Helping new, lapsed, and long-time comic readers discover new characters, stories, and creators.
Joe Quesada - Reasons Why I’m Here
To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Marvel Knights, we welcome Joe Quesada to tell the origin story of the imprint and contextualize it within Marvel history. One lucky break he got early in his career came full circle with the launch of Marvel Knights. That single opportunity he was given has continued to inform his creative career (and life) ever since.
Without Marvel Knights, we would not have the version of Black Panther that just hit screens, and were it not for writer Christopher Priest (aka Jim Owsley), we would not have had Marvel Knights in the first place, either.
"The chance that there's an open assignment? Not good, but I'll see."
Interviews with Joe Quesada were recorded live onstage at Fan Expo Canada in Toronto in the fall of 2016.
48: Enforceable Curfew and Women in Towers
John interviews Dean Haspiel pre-Election 2016 about what it is that he's afraid of and the infinite emptiness of the internet, while Moisés talks with Alex de Campi about the glorious darkness of certain fairy tales and the importance of being on a Science Ninja Team.
One-Shot 7: The Death Of
As a coda to our creator spotlight on Dan Slott, we look at the just-released Dead No More: The Clone Conspiracy #1. There's a spoiler warning at the point where we start spoiling, so don't worry. In the outro, we tease some upcoming guests and episodes.
47: Monkey's Paws with Dan Slott
Dan Slott injects danger and fear for our hero's life wherever he can, and that's why we love his work on Spider-Man. Those choices extends to how he has brought unexpected, sometimes-hated (and then loved), but always interesting changes to the status quo of various characters. We also hear from the man himself about not only his sensational and spectacular run onAmazing Spider-Man, but also his work on She-Hulk, The Thing, Silver Surfer, Ren & Stimpy, andArkham Asylum: Living Hell.
One-Shot 6: The Amazing Cube
Special Cameo Appearance by Stan "The Man" Lee! We waited until the second issue of Captain America: Steve Rogers came out to talk about the whole "Hail HYDRA" thing. How many people read comics versus read headlines about them? What is and isn't "a gimmick"? Are we on-board?
One-Shot 5: Emotional Payoff
This is either a "Triple-Sized" One-Shot or a Regular-Sized regular episode (or both!) coveringDC Universe Rebirth #1. There was confusion we were aware of before starting, and all-new, all-different confusion we discover while recording. We stay spoiler-free until the 37-minute mark.
A peek behind the curtain
What I believe makes this podcast standout from the other comicbook podcasts is all the insight you get to enjoy from creators!
Moises and John know the medium and the industry and bring a special twist to the usual interview.
There are also not hidden agendas, these guys are open and honest about their opinions on comicbooks, stories and events in the industry.
Give this a listen, I guarantee you will learn something every episode
No other comic book podcast required
Excellent stuff from start to finish. Two guys who know what they are talking about really convey their love for the art form and inform and entertain at the same time. A 'must have' for anyone with even a passing interest in the comic book universe.
A great listen
I’ve really enjoyed Giant Size. It seems that every episode they suggest a new book for me to read, this past episode (#42) it was Mythic. The discussion between the hosts is always informative.
