Here’s the recording of our intimate live podcast from NC Comiccon Oak City in Raleigh, NC! We’re talking with friend of the show Tini Howard about her comic Assassinistas, her work on WWE comics, Rick and Morty, and more. But before that, we go down a lot of rabbit trails that are also vapor trails.
We’re very happy to welcome the writer of the new webcomic Weekend Warrior and the upcoming wrestling comic I Love You, I’m Sorry, Mark Stack to the show this week! We talk about how juggling a secret weekend life is a lot like being a comic creator doing conventions, the best panels in Dark Knight Returns, non-wrestling fans reading wrestling comics, pronouns, the appeal of Adam Strange and much more! Plus, a Doom Patrol-centric Panel President segment!
Longtime pal Kelly Dale joins us this week to talk about the Kickstarter for the Skyward Omnibus, which collects all nine issues of the series Jeremy Dale made before his untimely passing in 2014, plus a brand-new tenth issue which wraps up the story. Plus, Chris and Matt answer a listener question that sends them into a retrospective of Bronze Age Marvel comics.
We’re pleased this week to welcome the creators of Capture Creatures, Becky and Frank, to the show! We talk with them about Frank’s pro wrestling podcast, creating their own Pokemon (of sorts), immeasurably cute drawings, the best Pokemon, New Japan, the perils of comics distribution and much more! Plus, we take an easy-to-answer listener question!
Kelly Thompson, reigning War Rocket Ajax Intercontinental Champion as well as writer of Rogue and Gambit, Hawkeye, and Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, among other comic series, joins us once again on the show this week to talk about comics romances, will-they-won’t-they tropes, the trick of pretending to be a couple, characters’ worst fears, working with longstanding fan favorites, the best X-Men couple and much more! Plus, Matt and Chris rank some characters for the Panel President list!
Rock Candy Mountain writer/artist and the Rick and Morty franchise Kyle Starks returns to War Rocket Ajax this week, joining us direct from his visit to Wizard World St. Louis! We talk about celebrity guests at conventions, hobo code, collaborating, convention entertainment options, Kyle’s different fan bases, a dream world for comic creators, and much more!
