This week Chris and Matt welcome Dr. McNinja artist/writer and recently named Deadpool: Fear Itself writer Christopher Hastings to the show! We talk with him at length about Dr. McNinja, Deadpool, influences, cursing in webcomics, the classic action film Commando and much more! If that wasn’t enough, we’re also joined by Ajax Hundo Club member Evan Guidry, and Chris takes on a hater on the topic of versatility!
- Follow Christopher Hastings on Twitter, and read his article on Comics Alliance listing the top five Deadpool moments!
- In case you had any doubts about the greatness that is Commando.
- We ask again that anyone who’s considering donating to WRA this week instead send that money to the Red Cross to help the people devastated by the earthquake in Japan. Alternately, GlobalGiving also has a Japan relief fund.
- To those who don’t like it when we talk about chicken and/or barbecue: Tough for you this week.
- Oh, hey! I didn’t talk about it on the show, but I’ll be hanging out at C2E2 in Chicago this weekend. I’ll be the guy with the beard, the longish hair and the horn-rimmed glasses. Say hi!
- Chris’s Rec: Pokemon Black
- Matt’s Rec: Deadwood on Blu-Ray
- Evan’s Rec: Gothic Doll
- Music used: “No Treaties” from the 1989 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles album, “Coming Out of Their Shells”
Comics Talked About:

- I had to cut it for time (yes, I cut things for time), but I talked about the first trade of The Sixth Gun. It’s great, and you should buy it.
