Comic Books Are Burning In Hell episode 0.3
For realz, this is gonna happen every week. Yes folks, it's time for the third installment of the Comic Books Are Burning In Hell audio hour, a podcast by Tucker Stone, Joe McCulloch, and yours truly. This time, thanks to the assistance of Mr. David Dedrick (whose own Sneaky Dragon podcast can be heard here), you can actually hear us all talking, too! You can also hear the debut of our brand new theme song, penned and recorded by Nina Stone, whose new album you should help to crowdfund by clicking here. This is the episode where everybody but the real G's abandons ship, as it's pretty much hardline art-comix talk from start to finish -- though two of them are art-comix about Wolverine and the Suicide Squad, so you know. For posterity, here's the list:
- Aidan Koch's webcomic The Blonde Woman, which you can and should read here while you listen to us talkin' about it,
- The new Wax Cross book from art collective Tin Can Forest and Koyama Press,
- Michael Comeau's Hellberta #2, which is a deadly serious contender for comic of the year right now,
- and hometown boy/official CBABIH entourage member Michel Fiffe's new bootleg Suicide Squad comic Deathzone!, which is also kind of the best thing ever. I did not get a chance to talk about the art in there on this episode, but holy shit. The part where it goes to all pencil rendering and every tiny little stroke is going exactly in the right direction. Also the page where Deadshot and Count Vertigo are both fighting the monsters and the camera's moving away from Vertigo and in on Deadshot... and the COLORS, dude... Fiffe is a fucking beast right now. You better get that one here. Yes, the print comes with the comic.
Listen up! And as ever, follow along with Joe's fantastic show notes right here.
