Hey, we are back! Like, backity-back! Like, two full hours of back! Back like Baby’s Got Back! Back, like Back to the Future! Like The Front is back! Like Orange is The New Back! Like Back That Azz Up is back, but with more of a later Outkast-influenced Atlanta sound! Wikipedia!
Posterior! Glutes! Back!
After the jump: show notes…are back! Back like [etc., etc.]
0:00-22:49: Man, it seems like it’s been forever, doesn’t it? After a few minutes of us trying to remember how it works, we finally remember that it seems to include “talking” and “listening” and so I wrest from Graeme the full report on his San Diego Comic-Con experience. Topics covered: Marvel’s Hall H presentation; the Agents of SHIELD TV show; interviewing Simon Pegg; meeting Glen Weldon; including the Marvel’s press conference adaptation of Waiting for Godot; and more.
22:49-1:02:01: And then we actually talk about, you know, comics? We discuss the joys of Lisa Hannawalt’s My Dirty Dumb Eyes; the pleasures of current 2000 A.D.; Indestructible Hulk #11 (the first part of the “Agent of Time” arc by Mark Waid and Matteo Scalera); the first 19 issues of Irredeemable by Mark Waid, Peter Krause, Diego and Eduardo Barretto; Batman Annual #2 by well-that’s-as-far-as-my-resolve-to-list-everybody-went; The Wake; the first trade of Saucer Country by Paul Connell, Ryan Kelly, Jimmy Broxton, and Goran Suzuka.
1:02:01-1:37:27: “It’s crazy that we’ve been talking for an hour and we haven’t even talked about Batman, Inc. #13.” We try and quickly cover the rest of the stuff we’ve read so we can get to that milestone, but pretty much fail impressively. Discussed along the way–we talk about Lazarus #2 by Greg Rucka and Michael Lark; Satellite Sam #1 by Matt Fraction and Howard Chaykin; the latest issue of Sex by Joe Casey and Piotr Kowalski; Amelia Cole #9 by Adam Knave, D.J. Kirkbride, Nick Brokenshire and Luiz Moreno; Hawkeye Annual #1 story by Matt Fraction, art by Javier Pulido (and we throw in a shout-out to Jog’s stellar TCJ column discussing the early art of Jae Lee; Flash #22; Optic Nerve #13 by Adrian Tomine; Judge Dredd Year One #4 by Matt Smith and Simon Coelby; and Five Ghosts #5 by Frank J. Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham.
1:37:27-1:57:31: We finally cut to the chase (90 minutes into the two hour podcast) and talk about Grant Morrison and Chris Burnham’s Batman Inc. #13. We mention David Uzimeri’s brilliant take on the issue over at Comics Alliance, as well as Morrison’s run on New X-Men, Action Comics, the work of Chris Burnham, and much more.
1:57:31-end: Almost two hours; a lot of comics talk; some pathetic attempts at beatboxing. The magic is back! Back like Return to the Planet of the Apes! Back like A la recherche du temps perdu! Back like a thing that was absent for a while but now is present! Back like if you look for this episode on iTunes, chances are good you’ll find it! Back like if you look right below you can download and listen!
As always, thanks for listening and we hope you enjoy and that when there is a next episode you are aware of it and listen to it as well.
