Brandon and Tim begin a two-part Skype discussion, starting with Dr. Strange: the Oath! Also, Brandon reads from a 1959 Charles Schulz essay on developing a comic and asks Tim about how he developed Spider-Hag!
We wrap up our discussion of Japanese comics with New Lone Wolf and Cub, Tezuka’s Future Man Chaos, and Inuyasha, plus we get sidetracked on the 25th anniversary edition of Blade Runner!
Tim, Mulele, Patrick, and Patrik discuss Hitoshi Iwaaki’s Parasyte (recently republished by Del-Ray), and (sometimes very goofy) portrayals of Japan and other familiar places in comics and in Hollywood.
Tim, Mulele, and Patrick interview Patrik Washburn, who has just completed his successful first gallery show in Tokyo.
