This Is Not An Interview #1: Kieron Gillen

This episode was recorded this past week! This is the first in a new regular series hosted by Tia Vasiliou, in which she chats with some of her favorite people in comics about everything and nothing (and maybe also comics). In our first episode, she talks with Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Star Wars, and more) about crying, RPGs, and maybe also comics, like 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank and Image Expo reactions. This Is Not An Interview will alternate with our monthly Bonus Minisode and will appear in your regular feed! Stay subscribed!

Episode 51 | A Curse on the show & Soapboxes

This week’s episode was recorded (twice) on December 27th, 2015. This week’s episode was cursed. The episode was recorded twice (once with Mike, once without…), so bear with us this week as things get weird. The final version features Zander Riggs, Tia Vasiliou, and Nick White who talk what they read last week and their comic picks for this week (Mercury Heat #6, Doctor Fate #7, and The Omega Men #7). The focal topic this week was about selling comics based on their creators and subsequently about following creators (on social media and other platforms–not in real life). Tia had to attend to some business at home, so the last chunk of the show is mostly Zander and Nick ranting… especially after the credits.

Episode 45 | Where do you get your comic news?

This episode was recorded on November 15th, 2015. Mike, Brian, and Nick get sort of distracted on Star Wars discussion this week, but manage to chat about what they read this week and their comic picks for this week (Wrath of the Eternal Warrior #1, Rat Queens #13, and Extraordinary X-Men #2). Distractions aside, the focus of this week’s episode was around comic news–particularly where they get it from and why.
