245: Frank Miller’s JO Challenge

My Podcast this week talks about Frank Miller’s Will Eisner’s The Spirit. My podcasts doesn’t think that it’s a very good movie. My podcast isn’t one of those other bad movie podcasts, though, it’s actually a comic book podcast, one that only on rare occasions dips its big toe into bad movies. My podcasts talks about the dad from Wonder Years being in this movie for the appropriate amount of time.

My podcast also features some hot new comic book news, and something in the Warmup that, if you didn’t know it yet, is new to you!

My podcast screams.

Episode 20: Game Changers – Batman is a Series of Circles

This week, we’re tackling game changers, with very little prep! Hopefully it doesn’t show! Those things that have come, seemingly out of nowhere, and changed the comic book industry. Grim ‘n gritty re-imaginings, non big-two comic publishers, the balance of art and writing (it was a little off in the ’90s, y’know), and the whiplash effect of what happens after Grant Morrisson leaves a book.
