HAPPY THANKSGIVING from the War Rocket Ajax crew. No plugs, no links, no nothing. Just a heartfelt thank you from all of us here. Thanks so much for listening, for commenting, for emailing, for everything. Hope all of you have a great holiday!
We’ll be taking the week off, but check back December 7, 2009 for our next episode!
p.s. – thanks so much for the incredible response for our Listener Email episode! Wowzers, you guys really came out of the woodwork to discuss! We’ll be doing it again soon!
We take a week where we give thanks for our bros and the bro-tastic bro’in’ that bros do. Errr..I mean, we invite Rusty Shackles, Matt Wilson, and Smithy to the show and answer listener emails, and the topics range far and wide. It’s a week without a guest, with a lot of non-comics discussion, and a chance for us to give thanks to everyone for listening to our little show.(click on the above link for full size art by Rusty Shackles).
Hey ho. We’ve been busy ’round these parts, so the blog’s been a little slow on the posts. But we still got a new episode coming on Monday, with a roundtable of bros ready to answer your listener email. Make sure you send any and all questions and comments to warrocketpodcast_at_gmail.com for our next listener mailbag episode. It was a blast. No topics were off limits!
For now, I will say that we want to keep doing our best to bring you the best possible show we can. And it helps us massively if you leave us reviews on iTunes and comment on the site with feedback, comments, hate mail, and compilments. Whatever you want to say, just keep the conversation going!
I’m hoping to have a new song for one of our future episodes, and we have some special guests and surprises in the works. So stay tuned, and thanks for all the emails! New episode Monday!
It finally happened. We breached the 2 hour mark. For those who hate how long our episodes are, maybe you can blame writer Chris Roberson for being too interesting, as he talks about Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love and his upcoming title I, Zombie. Or, you can blame Dr. K, since he stops by to talk about his trip with Sims to the infamous South of the Border. Or maybe, just maybe…you can blame the REGGAETON AIR HORN. Either way, it’s an episode of international intrigue and racist tourist traps. And really, how can you shortchange any of that? (click on the above link for full size art by Rusty Shackles).
We’ll be recording our next episode Friday the 13th, tonight, with Chris Roberson, writer of Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love, as well as other titles for the Clockwork Storybook Collective and MonkeyBrain Books, of which he is also the publisher and co-owner. Send your questions via email and twitter, and stay tuned for the episode to post next Monday!
The War Rocket Ajax crew is going to have an episode where we read YOUR emails! So email the show at warrocketpodcast_@_gmail.com and ask us anything you can think of, whether it’s related to comics or not. We’ll read them on the air and answer them with some special guests!
Guest announcements coming up soon. It’s been a busy week, I’m still trying to get organized.
In our most jam-packed episode yet, four writers from Toyfare Magazine’s Twisted Toyfare Theatre series stop by to chat about the creative process, and GI Joe. Justin Aclin, Rob Bricken, TJ Dietsch, and Jon Guitierez all join in on the fun. Also, it’s our obligatory Dark Reign tie-in episode, as a special guest stops by to take over third chair duties in the name of H.A.M.M.E.R. (click on the above link for full size art by Rusty Shackles).
Our next episode records tonight with the staff of Twisted Toyfare Theatre, the hilarious toy comic that appears every month in Toyfare Magazine. It’ll be a packed house, so if you have questions about TTT, Toyfare Magazine, or…well, anything you can think of, tweet ’em or email ’em at us post haste!
The gang’s all here, as Rusty Shackles joins the whole show, including our interview with special guest James Lucas Jones, the editor-in-chief of Oni Press. He talks to us about his history with comics, hate mail to editors, and his feelings on the personality of Oni as a publishing house. Also, apparently the crew decided to get drunk for every other segment completely independently of each other (click on the above link for full size art by Rusty Shackles).
