Afua Richardson joins us for this week’s show, and while you may know her as the cover artist of Black Panther: World of Wakanda and artist of Genius from Image Comics among other comics projects, she’s also worn many, many other hats including singer, voice actress, beatboxer, floutist, and the list goes on. Also, she’s on a first-name basis with KRS-One, which obviously makes her one of our favorite guests. In addition to all that, we also talk about taking breaks from work, adding symbolism to art, her X-Men ’92 variant cover, and much more! Plus, we take a listener question that relates to Every Story Ever!
It’s time for the 8th(!) annual War Rocket Ajax War on Christmas Special, and we’re back with another movie commentary! This time out, Matt Fraction joins us to watch the 1984 classic Gremlins, a movie Chris was too scared to watch back in his youth. What will he think now? Stay tuned to find out!
Thanks to Matt Fraction for joining us! Follow him on Tumblr, read Sex Criminals, ODY-C, and anything else he puts out.
With the holidays just around the corner, we asked the hosts of the Hark! podcast, RJ and Ian, to come on the show to talk about their ever-growing list of Christmas, holiday and winter songs! Plus, we requested that they go over Pitchfork’s list of the “50 best holiday songs of all time” with us, to see just how wrong they got it. Also, we take a listener question that adds a little comics content to the show!
The writer of the Inspector Pancakes series, Dreadful Sirens and the upcoming Project Tingler, Karla Pacheco, joins us once again! We talk with her at length about boat living, tragic phone loss, cross-country adventures, working with the enigmatic Chuck Tingle, irony, hotel fires, Joey Ryan, and eventually, her upcoming story in the Gwenpool Holiday Special! Plus, we take a couple listener questions!
