FLASHBACK! Tim reads some postings from a comics writers’ e-mail list about building a new world for your characters. One poster recommends reading Joseph Campbell‘s books; another poster can’t stand Joseph Campbell. Brandon, our resident Joseph Campbell expert, critiques that poster’s critiques.
Tim and Mulele (and an unexpected special guest!) report from the movie theater before and after seeing Zach Snyder’s “The Watchmen”, then talk on Skype a week later about how a cerebral comic became an action movie, as well as reviewing the reviews of the movie by half a dozen other podcasts!
FLASHBACK! Tim interviews Dale Wilson of DWAP Productions, an indy publisher in Los Angeles that has published some work by one Mulele Jarvis…
After a long time away, Brandon is back to discuss with Tim the travels of Guy Delisle (“The Burma Chronicles”) and K. Thor Jensen (“Red Eye, Black Eye”).
FLASHBACK! Way, way back to the early days of the podcast: three guys sitting in a room, talking comics. Tim, Mulele, and Brandon discuss Steven T. Seagle and Teddy Kristiansen’s “It’s a Bird”, and Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s “Spider-man Blue” and “Hulk Gray”. (Regarding sound quality: in those days, I purposely downgraded the sound to keep the MP3 file small!)
Longtime comics and Star Trek-novel writer Peter David talks about being a writer, balancing the conflicting expectations of the mainstream comics audience, and why he’s learned to have NO expectations whatsoever of any movie before he actually sees it!
FLASHBACK! Re-presenting Tim’s interview with Alex Robinson. He talks about Box Office Poison, Tricked, Lower Regions, and the then-upcoming Too Cool To Be Forgotten, as well as the difficulty of working toward a deadline that’s months away…!
