Critiquing Comics #172 “Adventures of God”

Critiquing Comics #165: “Purgatory Pub” and “Amazing Tales”

Purgatory Pub and Amazing Tales

Critiquing Comics returns to discuss the following comics:

  • Gabriel Dunston’s Purgatory Pub presents an angel and a devil having a philosophical discussion. Tim and Mulele have very different levels of tolerance for that concept, and yet come to the same conclusion about this story.
  • David Dye’s Amazing Tales gives us “stories of an Australian nature,” as the cover warns (his word, not ours!). While we might not understand every word of this, we’d sure like to see more of the art.

Critiquing Comics #023: “A Little World Made Cunningly”

#228 Ruben Bolling

Ruben Bolling is a comic strip creator who admits that he’s less interested in drawing than he used to be.

One such pursuit may be a movie project with New Line Cinema. In an interview with Tim, Bolling talks about the movie, his influences, his tools, and his characters, as well as answering questions from listeners!
