The above image is from Dave Sim’s Glamourpuss #24, just one of many fine comic book hoohahs under discussion in episode 82 of the latest podcast from the brilliant (but presently ill!) Graeme McMillan and the generally slow-on-the-uptake (but mostly healthy!) yours truly.
I gotta say, we pretty much drove right in on this one, and ended up talking Action Comics #8 in the first three minutes of this two hour twenty-five minute blabapalooza, and also managed to hit topics like OMAC #8, the colorization of Scott Pilgrim, the battles behind the TV show Community, a great blog post by Steve K. about the state of the comics Internet, Casanova #3, Supreme #20, Fatale #4, Strike Force Morituri, and that stunning issue of Glamourpuss mentioned above.
Also! We have the first (and hopefully last) installment of Listen to Jackass, in which I respond to blog posts I haven’t even read yet! It’s a bit like that old Johnny Carson ‘Carnac The Magnificent’ sketch, except instead of cheap laughs it kinda goes more for the “feeling ashamed for Jeff and, in a way, the whole human race” kind of feeling.
iTunes? Well, of course! But also right here and now, ready to be cradled like a baby bird that has tumbled from its nest:
Oh, and I should warn you–because Graeme is feeling very under the weather, and I am feeling like I want to watch The Raid: Redemption over and over and over until they drag me kicking and screaming out of the movie theater, we won’t be recording this week, so there won’t be a podcast next week. You understand, don’t you?
In any event, we hope you enjoy this latest installment, and thanks for listening!
