Comic Books Are Burning In Hell episode 0.2
After a week of no doubt white-knuckle waiting, it's finally here: the second part of the inaugural, so lo-fi it's hi-fi episode of the Comic Books Are Burning In Hell audio hour, featuring Tucker Stone, Joe McCulloch, and myself. Big ups to Robin McConnell of the legendary Inkstuds podcast for getting this episode to sound a little better than the last one, though we remain the My Bloody Valentine of comic book podcasts. This time the topics up for discussion are:
-last month's MoCCA Festival, our various problems with it, and the amazing Norwegian comic Suicide Joe, which we picked up there,
- the recently concluded Lobster Johnson miniseries, and how it's way better than the Avengers movie,
- the new Grant Morrison Action Comics, which is much less entertaining than Joe's take on it,
- some weird shit called Morgus, a local Detroit newspaper comic by a TV horror host (I was pretty disappointed that my grandmother has never heard of it)
- the relative merits of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comics old and new,
- and a return to the deep-level Garth Ennis theorizing of the episode's first half, this time centered around his new Fury Max comic.
Listen up! And when you're done, Joe has posted another highly rewarding bouquet of annotations for your pleasure here.
