Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 36] : Occasional Fish Dicks w/ Mark Russell

geek-prez
Mark Russell, writer and visionary behind DC’s Prez, stops by this week to talk to G&J about everything from Cart Dracula (get ready for some big news, Drac Pack!) to Eagle Free and everything in between. Do we contemplate the fate of all mankind at some point? You know it. Plus, we get a little sample of Mark’s tasty Frankenberry fan fiction. You don’t wanna miss this one, Prez Head!

Apologies for the sporadic drops in sound quality. Skype was being a real sore ass that day.

Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Ashcan 03] : Prophecy Boy, He’s a Power Man

gtjc-ashcan03

In a throwback to shows of yore, Gordy downs a few Red Alerts(tm) and tells Justin all about one single comic. He manages to recall countless minute details, none of which help anyone to understand one thing about the plot or basic story elements. It’s dense, like a nice, thick cream. But if you’re as big a fan of fantasy tropes as G & J are, you might wanna grab your own proprietary beverage and give it a listen.

Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 35] : Halloween Jammers 2015

superedit

Happy Post-Halloween! OooOOooOOoooh! In this spooktastic eppy, Gordy continues his downward spiral into insanity by trying to convince Bergo that the Flash is real. Not spooky enough for you?! OK, well how about Apocalypse versus Dracula?! How about porno zombies?! How about Supergods?!?! Something in there is bound to make you wet your trousers, so just go listen to it already.

“No one wants to see the Flash walk and talk. They wanna see him run and scream.”
-Justin

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.

Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 26] : Olly Olly Odin Folk w/ Tyler Chin-Tanner

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 25] : Button Fly Forever

robby

Remember the 90s?! VH1 had a whole thing about em, but come to think of it, I don’t remember them ever bringing up the biggest thing going on at the time: Image Comics. Spawn! Savage Dragon! The Maxx! Wildcats! And yes, also Shadowhawk. We talk about the good, the bad, and the button fly on today’s eppy. Then Gordy talks about his experience with Stormwatch in particular, a comic requested by loyal listener Billy.

PLUS! Gordy meets Zealot, Angela moves to Marvel, the President is the boss of mayors, and G&J launch their new hit crossover series Space Jam 2: Chunk it and Dunk it (with Morbius and Zealot). Watch for it on magazine racks nation wide!

Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 24] : Double Stilt Football

stiltman

If everything just feels right in the world to you today, it’s probably in no small part to this podcast and the heavy focus on Stilt-Man. You didn’t know you loved the world’s most obvious, high-tech peeping tom in history, but now you do. Know what else you probably love? Erotic mutant fan fiction. Just don’t read too much of it or you’ll end up face to face with Mephisto some day! Just kidding, never stop. Oh, and we dance around The Punisher for a bit, but as we all know, all roads lead back to Stilt-Man.

Also! HD sniffing, Bog McFarlane, NFL SuperPro 2.0 featuring Christian Okoye, NASCAR villains, and the mysteries surrounding the spooooky number 23.

daredevil

Josh Engen and his son Atlas sit in on today’s show to talk about all the hot button issues facing our society today. Is the Joker a good guy or a bad guy? What is an Octonaut? What’s the best position in a human centipede? And can Batman really fly? Once they solve all THOSE mysteries, they move on to maybe the biggest one of all: is the new Daredevil show really any good? We debut our new segment, “Justin, Judge and Jury,” and find out.

Also this eppy! Scarvel’s Baremevil, a Mad Men/TMNT crossover, a trip off the reddit bridge and into the darkweb, Comix Zone vs. Turtles in Time, and Gordy knows Bo, who knows baseball, so ipso facto Gordy knows baseball. Play balls!
