With Chris away on the high seas, Matt has welcomed special guest host Matt Fisher of the Life Leave Me Alone podcast to come aboard and talk with none other than Becky Cloonan about her work on Southern Cross, The Punisher and Gotham Academy! We also talk a bunch about metal and hardcore music, artist Andy Belanger’s wrestling alter-ego, the intersection of all the different books she writes and a bunch more! Plus, we take a financially focused listener question!
Afua Richardson joins us for this week’s show, and while you may know her as the cover artist of Black Panther: World of Wakanda and artist of Genius from Image Comics among other comics projects, she’s also worn many, many other hats including singer, voice actress, beatboxer, floutist, and the list goes on. Also, she’s on a first-name basis with KRS-One, which obviously makes her one of our favorite guests. In addition to all that, we also talk about taking breaks from work, adding symbolism to art, her X-Men ’92 variant cover, and much more! Plus, we take a listener question that relates to Every Story Ever!
It’s time for the 8th(!) annual War Rocket Ajax War on Christmas Special, and we’re back with another movie commentary! This time out, Matt Fraction joins us to watch the 1984 classic Gremlins, a movie Chris was too scared to watch back in his youth. What will he think now? Stay tuned to find out!
Thanks to Matt Fraction for joining us! Follow him on Tumblr, read Sex Criminals, ODY-C, and anything else he puts out.
With the holidays just around the corner, we asked the hosts of the Hark! podcast, RJ and Ian, to come on the show to talk about their ever-growing list of Christmas, holiday and winter songs! Plus, we requested that they go over Pitchfork’s list of the “50 best holiday songs of all time” with us, to see just how wrong they got it. Also, we take a listener question that adds a little comics content to the show!
