Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt, the writer/artist team behind Oni Press’ The Sixth Gun and The Damned, sit down with us this week to talk about their comics, the best Westerns, collaborating, the power of a good margarita, the difference color makes, why supernatural stuff is a part of their stories and much more! We also welcome another member of the Ajax Hundo Club, Alberto DeJesus, and answer a philosophical listener question!
Atomic Robo and Captain America: The Fighting Avenger writer Brian Clevinger stops in to talk with us about Cap, Thor: The Mighty Avenger, his new Robo anthology, the future of digital comics, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, who he’d pick to voice Robo and lots of other stuff! Plus: A momentous checking of ourselves, one last reading of pledge drive names, and more!
Chris Burnham, artist on Batman Incorporated, Officer Downe and Nixon’s Pals, stops in this week to talk about his work, particularly on a character one host seems to have some kind of affinity for. Among other things, Mr. Burnham tells us how difficult it is to draw death traps and to not draw Batman murdering people. We also welcome yet another member of the Ajax Hundo Club, Mr. Rob Dean! With him, we answer an age-old question about donuts.
Fellow Carolinian and barbecue enthusiast Jeff Parker returns to War Rocket Ajax this week to talk about his work on Hulk, Thunderbolts and his webcomic, Bucko! We talk at length about barbecue (it wouldn’t be WRA without it), why Jeff wasn’t able to have any snow cream this year, the zen-like conundrum of Shaolin monk vs. caveman and much, much more! Plus: We offer one last big incentive in the very last week of our pledge drive, answer a listener question and give our first ever anti-recommendation!
