We finally welcome someone from Archie Comics onto the show this week, as we talk with Alex Segura, director of publicity and marketing for the publisher, and writer of “Archie Meets KISS!” We talk to Alex about how he managed to snag the elusive band, Archie’s distribution policies, his top Archie books of all time, how Archie ended up becoming such a progressive company, and much more! Plus, a reading from Chris’ favorite magazine!
It’s time for another roundtable comics discussion, this week with Chad Bowers of Monster Plus and Josh Krach of Troop Infinity! We continue to talk about the DC reboot with our picks for what new titles we’d like to see in the line (and, you know, write). Plus, we get into what Marvel’s recent turn of the axe on some not-even-published-yet books means for comics makers like us and get into the question of whether fans seeing sales numbers is bad for out-of-the-mainstream titles. Plus, we answer some quizzical listener mail!
