Two for one special on podcasts this week. Get 'em while they're hot! In this episode, we present our (belated) Summer Movie recap. We'll run down the 10 movies we saw this summer, from downright abysmal to "Hey, that was surprisingly good!" If you like reviews of things, you will probably enjoy this episode. Also, there is only minimal basement talk.
We return to our regular format after SPXplosion with a two for one special this week on podcasts. Get 'em while they're hot! In this episode, Justin makes creepy, possibly sexual advances on Colin, Sean, and all the listeners under the auspices of discussing Progressive Rock music. Our rap music discussion was a real mess (since Justin was pulling it out of his ass), so he tries to make up for it by talking about something he knows way too much about. Also, Justin makes a personal and shocking confession regarding AC/DC.
Well, that's it for SPXplosion, folks. Last, but not least, comes our interview with Lee Brettschneider, who puts out the Very Near Mint series of print comics along with a variety of other delightful prints, posters, and collectibles with his partner in crime, Justin Peterson. We came across Lee and Justin's table at SPX and immediately lost our shit as we started cracking up at their hilarious posters. We probably bought a half dozen posters from them. We also received a copy of their newest one-off, Bellanova Redstar: Space Girl 4199 at the Edge of the Universe, and we'll have a full review of it in a later episode. Check out this and other fine comics at adventuringcompany.com/
In this, our penultimate episode, we interview Jef UK, the front man for the sci-fi punk rock band Americans UK. Jef is also a writer of fiction as well as the publisher of a free comic (also entitled Americans UK) which follows the adventures of the band. Jef joins us to discuss, among other things, the Beastie Boys and how awesome the X-Men cartoon theme song was. Check out his stuff at americans-uk.com/ and www.jefwrites.com/ Also, listen at the end for the song "Cooler than You" off the free "I, Ape-Man" EP available on the Americans UK website.
In this episode, we interview Jeph Jacques, the creator of the popular webcomic Questionable Content. Judging by the size of the lines at his table, Jeph probably doesn't need much more introduction than that. In addition to doing Questionable Content, Jeph also posts original music under the Deathmole label (which also happens to be Marten's band in QC). Check out Questionable Content at www.questionablecontent.net/ and Deathmole at deathmole.bandcamp.com/
In this episode, we interview Frank Gibson, writer and co-creator of Tiny Kitten Teeth with Becky Dreistadt, who hand paints each comic with amazing flair. We assure you that Tiny Kitten Teeth is one of the most gorgeous comics you will find online (and definitely the cutest). The art is inspired by Animal Crossing, Golden Books, Disney, and a number of other sources. The writing is also delightful. Anyway, listen to our interview with Frank and then go to www.tinykittenteeth.com/
In this episode, we interview Jon Rosenberg, the creator of the (extremely) long-running comic Goats and the new comic that's taking the internet by storm, Scenes from a Multiverse. SFAM is the webcomic that lets you the reader vote to decide what you see more of. Jon joins us to discuss Dr. Who and the prohibitive cost of action figures, among other things. Check out Jon's work at www.goats.com/ and amultiverse.com/
