Yeah, this is as close as you’re going to get as podcasting in real time, Whatnauts — Graeme and I talked for half an hour just a few hours ago, and I decided I’d get this edited and uploaded for you to enjoy. Super-brief show notes for a super-brief SDCC special after the jump!
0:00-10:23: Very scattered greetings! Graeme is directly outside SDCC and Jeff is….not. We have thirty minutes to talk which of course is a stunningly short period of time for us, so this is far from us at our sharpest. Although the connection is a bit echoey at various points, Graeme gives up the big update on the DC All-Access panel: Aquaman vs. Sharknado — who does Geoff Johns think would win? Also mentioned: the state of Preview Night 2013; the crazy low prices over at the 2000AD booth; the state of cosplay; the awesome people at Fantagraphics; the upcoming Comic Blogging Panel; and more.
10:23-17:48: Comic books –we do in fact read ’em and decide, hey, why not talk about them? Covered in today’s talk Justice League of America #6 (Graeme’s read it, Jeff hasn’t); Walking Dead #112; Batman #22 by Snyder and Capullo; Batman & Catwoman #22 by Tomasi and Gleason; The Invincible Haggard West one-shot by Paul Pope; Deadpool #13; and Batman ’66 #3.
17:48-19:16: Whoever had 16:47 in the betting pool for when Jeff would start talking about 2000AD, pick up your winnings at Window No. 2! 2000AD Prog. 1841 as well as Judge Dredd Megazine #338 hit the apps yesterday and Jeff really liked the Dredd stories in both.
19:16-23:45: There is a brief chat about the upcoming Al Ewing Avengers book (Jeff is a bit bummed he will not be able to buy it), Avengers books back in the ’90s, and Irredeemable which Jeff had followed for a while and is now giving another try. Graeme read Extermination by Si Spurrier and Jeffrey Edwards.
23:45-end: Back to SDCC talk. Running into people at SDCC, as well as not running into people at SDCC; Graeme as Dr. Doom; Jeff wussing out on a more extensive part two to this talk. More bits about what Graeme has coming up (which I guess might make it possible to… stalk him, I’m just now realizing?), some great passerby (or is it passerbys?), and closing comments.
It is on iTunes (maybe?) and it is also right here (definitely):
So yeah, clearly, we’re not going to be replacing Twitter anytime soon, but since Graeme was willing to talk, I was willing to do what I could to get it up in a timely fashion. Obviously, we hope you enjoy!
