Chris Sims is taking the week off, so Matt’s answering your listener questions with two of the show’s most popular guests and oldest friends: Chris Haley and Curt Franklin! We revisit the old topics like bags of salt, and take on some new ones, including Captain America and Superman’s dining preferences, tweets on our tombstones and Prince memories.
Episode 300 is here, and to celebrate, we’re welcoming Scott Snyder back to the show for the first time in like, six years!
In that time, a good many things have happened, including Scott writing a whole heck of a lot of issues of Batman. So we talk with him about Batman (of course), including the new All-Star Batman series he’s working on with a murderer’s row of arists. Plus, we get into discussing his comics writing classes, too. It’s a big one!
Robert Wilson IV and Christopher Sebela, the artist and writer of Oni Press’ new series Heartthrob, join us for this week’s show! We talk about researching heart transplants, portraying unreality, Art Bell, the allure of the 1970s, Pinterest, nicknames, romance stories and much more!
