    Sherman & Lewis on ABOVE SNAKES

    Sherman & Lewis on ABOVE SNAKES

    Artist Hayden Sherman and writer Sean Lewis have gone from hi-tech to low-tech with their new Image miniseries Above Snakes, and Greg gets a chance to chat with them about it.
    A fantasy western with vengeance, blood, electric colors, surprise lettering, and a guy named Dirt, Above Snakes is their third collaboration, after The Few and Thumbs. Find out how they came together as this modern-day Jean Giraud, the difference between writing to be read versus heard, why Facebook isn't a COMPLETE blight on the world, directing plays versus writing Spawn, whether Sean even likes westerns, and more on today's episode!

    Talking Fandom with RushCon's Jillian Maryonovich, Part 2

    Talking Fandom with RushCon's Jillian Maryonovich, Part 2

    The second half of Greg's chat with RushCon creative director and "Rush Fan in Chief" Jillian Maryonovich is finally here! Having covered so much ground about Jillian's background and connection to the band (as well as her time as White House Creative Director during President Obama's second term), the stage is set for some full-on Rush geekery!
    Find out what Rush-related comic Greg absolutely hated, which Rush songs and albums Jillian would erase from existence for charity (and which ones she would do for free), how the band told off the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in the most Canadian way possible, why you should learn to stop listening to the naysayers and give this band a chance, and so much more!

    [Rebroadcast] Episode 761: Talking Fandom with RushCon's Jillian Maryonovich, Part 1

    [Rebroadcast] Episode 761: Talking Fandom with RushCon's Jillian Maryonovich, Part 1

    In preparation for the second half of this interview later this week, we present Part 1, originally broadcast on July 29, 2021.
    Robots is a show built on being a fan of something. While the fandom in question is usually comics, today's episode deviates from the norm a bit as Greg kicks off a 2-part chat with Jillian Maryonovich about fandom in general and their shared passion for the Canadian rock trio Rush. in particular.
    Jillian was not only in the front row for Rush's final show ever, but has appeared in two documentaries about the band. In her capacity as Creative Director for RushCon, she has spent years helping fans make memories and new connections over a shared love of the group and its music. She is also not a stranger to tours of a different sort, having been on staff for the political campaigns of Pete Buttigeig and one Barack Hussein Obama, including four years as the White House Creative Director during President Obama's second term. She may not have come up with the title "Rush Fan in Chief" but we think it's as apt a description as any.

    6 SIDEKICKS' Chris Schweizer & Kyle Starks

    6 SIDEKICKS' Chris Schweizer & Kyle Starks

    Another great interview lined up for you folks today, because Greg got the opportunity to sit down with the 6 Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton team of writer Kyle Starks and artist Chris Schweizer. They are both Eisner-nominated cartoonists in their own right, and have individually brought you such works as Sexcastle and Old Head in Kyle’s case, and The Crogan Adventures and The Roanoke Colony: America’s First Mystery in Chris’s. But these virtual studiomates have also started combining their talents on books like Rock Candy Mountain and Mars Attacks, and Trigger Keaton, now out in trade paperback from Image Comics, continues that trend.
    Greg talks to them about their particular working dynamic over several projects, how COVID has changed the importance and avenues of social media and creator outreach, selling motion in a static medium, balancing comedy and drama without shortchanging either, which Keaton TV show would make the jump to the real world if they had their way, Kyle’s upcoming F**k This Place ongoing series (starting May 18), just what the hell a ‘tiger truck’ is, and much more!

    COMPASS's Walker & Mackenzie

    COMPASS's Walker & Mackenzie

    To paraphrase a marketing line from the 80's - adventure has a new name, and that name is Shahidah El-Amin. The lead character in the recent Image Comics mini-series Compass, Shahidah is a 13th Century scholar from Baghdad's House of Wisdom who has traveled to the British Isles to investigate claims of a tribe that has found the secret to eternal life. Along the way to discovering the truth, Shahidah encounters different mysteries, cultures, surprises, allies, enemies, and those who would be both. Now collected in trade paperback as Compass: The Cauldron of Eternal Life, the series was drawn by Justin Greenwood, colored by Daniela Miwa, lettered by Simon Bowland, and written by our guests today: the Australian writing duo of Dave Walker and Robert Mackenzie.
    The conversation covers the meaning of adventure in today's world, the Venn diagram of role-playing games, comics, and improv theatre, the price of comics Down Under, doing your creative homework, ranking Indiana Jones's exploits, and much more!

    Episode 777: Robert Greenberger

    Episode 777: Robert Greenberger

    Today's episode presents a chat Greg had towards the end of last year with editor/author Robert Greenberger. The list of Bob's credits is both long and distinguished, including almost 20 years as an editor at DC Comics overseeing such titles as Doom Patrol, Suicide Squad, Who's Who, Crisis on Infinite Earths, The Atlantis Chronicles, and guiding the comics voyages of the Starship Enterprise during its DC publishing stint. He was also the founding editor of Comics Scene, a Starlog sister magazine of comics fandom from the 80s that provided a pre-Internet audience access to comics news and interviews. And when he's not teaching high school English or moderating convention panels, Bob is a prolific prose writer & editor in his own right.
    Bob graciously let Greg pepper him with questions about most of his comics career, expounding on such topics as the secret origin of Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol run, how comics collections are put together, balancing creativity versus productivity in comics, the best freelancer lateness excuse he ever heard, the nuts & bolts of how comics are published at the Big Two level, and much more!

Great banter

Very enjoyable banter about comics coming out with more of an indie spin

Most Excellent

I have been listening for the last 4 or 5 months and very much enjoy their weekly pull list and monthly Previews podcasts. Very knowledgeable and have a passion for the genre. Highly recommended to anyone who buys new comics regularly or who wants to follow along with a Previews catalog and learn some great stuff.

A must-listen for serious comic fans

Come here to find rangy and informed discussion of comics. There are so many comics podcasts. The ones that cover mainstream comics can sometimes be trite. On the other hand, the more indie oriented podcasts are sometimes esoteric or pretentious. Others can get myopic about creators, the industry, the craft. These guys kind of do it all, but do it with substance, depth, and sophistication, while just being two accessibly low key guys. They'll expound on a deep back catalogue of big-2 knowledge, but also often go at length about weird books I may never read, but am glad to learn of. Highly recommend.
