Critiquing Comics #154: “Some Strange Disturbances” and Tim sees a Marvel movie!

Strange Disturbances & Capt Marvel

This time, we diverge from the normal format and discuss a variety of topics:

1:17 Writer Craig Hurd-McKenny sent us three of his LGBTQ+-friendly comics, and we discuss them all: The Magic If (art by Gervasio, Melisa Jones, and Tyler Smith-Owings), The Brontes: Infernal Angria (art by Rick Geary), and Some Strange Disturbances (art by Gervasio, Carlos Aon, and Tyler Smith-Owings).

32:16 In Deconstructing Comics last week, Tim talked to some comics retailers in Chicago about the state of the industry. Tim and Mulele react to the retailers’ comments.

55:17 Tim talks about the movies he saw during his visit to the U.S.: Captain Marvel, Dumbo, and Shazam!

1:26:53 We read mail from creators whose comics we’ve discussed in past episodes.

#605 Audio “MIND MGMT” & 20 years of “Jane’s World”

MIND MGMT & Jane's World

Matt Kindt (creator of Super Spy, Revolver, and more) recently ran a Kickstarter for an audio comic — on a vinyl record! — set in the MIND MGMT universe. He talks to Tim in this episode about how it went, why he wanted to do this project, and what’s coming next from him.

Then, Jason McNamara joins Tim to discuss Love Letters to ‘Jane’s World’, a 20th-anniversary collection of Paige Braddock‘s Eisner-nominated strip.

#267 Writer’s Old Fashioned and the Future of Comics

In San Francisco! Tim finally meets in person some of the Writer’s Old Fashioned folks who have been on the podcast before– (L-R) Matt Silady, Steph Godfrey, Jason McNamara–and meets Matt’s co-teacher, Justin Hall. We catch up on what they’ve been doing comics-wise, and get their thoughts on creating comics, including keeping yourself going after finishing a project, keeping genre fiction interesting, and how the move to digital comics might pan out.
