Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 32] : GTJC@SDCC 2015

comiccon

Gordy made the journey to the San Diego Comic-Con this year and has a couple of things to say about it. Justin spent most of the weekend in a literal closet, but that seemed pretty cool too, so they also talk about that. Wanna know if Gordy found someone wearing his Beast hat at the con? How many cigarettes did he smoke with the drunk blue guy? Was he under surveillance by SCOOPS the entire time?! Likely. Was he under the surveillance of Jesus Christ as well?! Most assuredly.

PLUS! Guinan isn’t who we thought she was, hologram cowboy games, Gordy nearly gets impractically joked upon, the Cross-Fit/Hawkman experience, and hot tips for sneaking into conventions. Stay tuned at the end of the episode for Gordy’s random guy interview and clips from the Grant Morrison Multiversity panel Q&A session!

DOUBLE PLUS! HUGE thanks to Jonathan Hennessey for hooking Gordy up with the con pass. Be sure to check out his comic book epic Epochalypse, now out in trade form on Amazon, Comixology, and/or your local comic book store!

Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 30] : Anaprez Rickwalker

prez

We’re Eagle Free in ’73 this week as the boys talk about the President Teen in 2015. What do we mean? It’s difficult to say. After a look back at Prez and its definitive take on Dracula, we look to the future to see if this new relaunch holds up. So far, without Dracula, the answer is a tentative “no sir.” Then, after creating a Smokey the Bear for a new generation, we crawl into the muck of Marvel and DC’s big time event books, Convergence and Secret Wars (not to be confused with Divergent or the Iraq war).

Prez Dracula Watch – Month 1 – No Sightings.

PLUS! Pod challenges, New Pompei, Doom as your God, and our plans to make sure Justin can ask Jim Lee about Zealot again some day, even if it means Gordy’s imprisonment.

Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 29] : Dairy to be Nipotent w/ Kuen Tang

witchblade

We start things off this week with an impromptu discussion about a weirdo who slobbers on iced cream for a living, and that quickly spirals into an exploration of his comic book potential. Could The Aerator end up as Steam-Man’s number one villain? Is he a ten? Does being a ten make him a one?! Tune in and find out. Then we have an awesome chat with the incomparable letterer, adventurer, and activist, Kuen Tang. She’s been everywhere and done everything, and we talk about it all. Listen to the interview, then head on over to her site – kuentang.com – and check out her past and future works.

Also! Don’t cross the creams, the challenges of Witchblade hair and Liefeld feet, nature’s barreled water, and spooky Russian babies.

angela

The spirits (or thetans) are with us on this week’s podcast as we spend the first half of the show unpacking some of the mystery behind the Angela character, formerly of Image but now a Marvel property. How does that happen? We’re still not *entirely* sure, but it does. After that the boys sit down with their guest Tyler Chin-Tanner, a writer and artist who’s currently out promoting the Kickstarter campaign for his latest project, The Broken Frontier Anthology. They talk about Tyler’s comics history, the realities of small-press publishing, managing a Kickstarter campaign, and just about everything in between.

Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 20]: Bakula, Dracula, Monterey Jackula

longshot

 

In an episode that is sure to inspire the FFFF community (Fan Fic For F-Sure) for years to come, Gordy asks Justin to help him sort through his confusing feelings about the X-Men. This quickly turns in to a discussion of venereal disease in the shape-changer community and Mystique’s time as a Chimp Shaman. So, everything works itself out in the end. Then they go over a couple of scamps Gordy has no confusion about, only a deep-seated and never-ending love: Longshot and Dazzler. Who’s got four fingers and a mullet? The guy who knocked up Galactus’s Disco Herald and gave birth to himself. That’s who.

ALSO! Ziggy’s terrible secret, the ghosts of steamboats past, Everybody Loves Shooter, and the true location of the Mojoverse.
