"Any of the big changes so they kept bits and pieces of like superman and other things that they liked but they know went back to the Everything else for the rest. But what i what i do like about this comic is if you're going to do something like the new fifty two and you just want to really flip something on its head and go for something. Different thematically totally. This is what i like to see. jeff amir. You know we got that invitation from dc like you wanna do something on the new fifty two and he sat down and he was like. I'm going to do something on the new fifty two you. I'm just gonna make it as bad shit fucking insane as possible. Then you -ccomplish that really did like the you know you don't get shit like this in dc normally not not. I mean especially in the new fifty. Two eric is like this stories are pretty cut and dry like they were pretty like. I put it classic nineties retakes pretty much. I'm mean that's how the new fifty two felt for me in this particular story. Felt like maybe like a two thousand ten like weird shit comic like that may be would find from image or something. Yeah one hundred. I wish i wish. I could have been on the phone call because i don't think it's a coincidence. That jeff amir wanted to go back shit insane and the comic that he did it with was animal. Man's one hundred percent certain. Dc would not have let this fly with something like that manner superman or one of the big justice league is so. I'm curious whether they went to jeff lemere with abroad invitation. Like do you wanna do something. And he picked animal man because he knew that that was a property. That you get really weird with or if dc was like there's this jeff lemere guy people fucking love them. Something about sweet tooth Let's just toss mammal mathis honestly shit. Or what if what if dc was like. Oh shit we wanna do a sendoff verdicchio. So we're going to do crazy. Animal man swamp thing. Crossover jeff amir weird with it. That does seem likely It's maybe not a story. I would've pegged for jeff linear but i even. Maybe if i don't appreciate this comic as a whole i really appreciate the chance that it took. I appreciate what it tried to do. I think you might just have kind of been in zone with his horror stories and he just kind of wanted to do something a little similar to pet cemetery. Because i feel like i saw a way more dead animals in this book than i have in a long time yet. A certain moment in this comic seems highly. Reminiscent pet cemetery The story itself. Though you know however much i appreciate the chances that jeff lemere took it. This really seems like something he was like man. I'm like deep into these other projects. Let me just go shit. Something out for really quick. He uses so much like macguffin does like like. Yes the trajectory for the story. There is no explanation and like shit just changes on a whim. Eight-man dude this thing really was slapped together like holy shit. This first the first roadmap is just wild. When maxine is like talking about his map on his chest that looks nothing like a map by ed but she could follow these crazy veins on him and then all of a sudden when they're actually in place or like getting near the place like oh we gotta listen to these animals now to find it. I'm like bit. You just told us this place by looking at your dad's here we are. We're this freckle on buddies right arm. We gotta talk to the animals to find where we have to go next it..

"This. Because i did read the first two collections of sweet tooth. are you happy mike. I finally it right it. This is of course the series written and drawn by jeff amir. I bought the first issue this when it came out. Because i think when this came out to in vertigo is doing their first issues. Were all a dollar. So i grabbed it and i had read essex county. At that point. I knew genucel myers work lumieres work and It didn't do much for me. I thought the pacing very slow. I couldn't imagine reading this book month-to-month so sitting down meeting the volumes collected works a lot better that said a silly with to burn through these collections in about our piece if that but collections were you reading the omni's or were you reading. Oh no say five issues to the trades. Yep yeah okay books. It's the volumes again. No one will bother to try to figure out but all that being said like i did enjoy this. I guess i didn't love the first issue. When i read it years and years ago but reading this now i didn't join more next to. It is at times feels cliche. If you've read or watched cormac mccarthy's the road either. The book or the film version. You've pretty much going on here And again lamar's work is I like it visually. I've always kind of liked his work more than the stuff. You just rights So that being said like as someone who loved county. I did appreciate that one of the issues in here. I think is fine too I don't know which one it was. But there's an issue about sad hockey player. So mike okay. Well that's what essex county's about so he's going back to the wealth outline I guess my biggest criticism. So far is i like the deliberate pace of it. I liked them. Amir's work i think. He has such a masterful control of slowing the reader down and slowing the pace the book without feeling boring. But i wonder if the book would look better if it was monochromatic or black and white I found the colors somewhat distracting along the time and lucas lakes. Our work so much to begin with it did feel like you'd like gilding the lily at that point where you don't need that but overall i i enjoyed it. I'm i'll probably go ahead and finish the rest of it. Like i said i burn to these these times pretty quickly so i can read the rest of it at some point so Yeah there you. Don't mike i did it. I liked it. I you know i i appreciate it and the thing i will say i i can see what you mean about..

"I'm trying to read comics. I finally finished. He caught an ago As part of the manga real long series. We're doing on dischord. I was like a day late. But i'm what an ending Might be one of the. Most exciting fund manga reads. You could ever read. I don't know I read the first arc of demon slayer because kelly started watching the anime. I wanted to be able to talk to her about it. So just really quick on those but the other things that i read that i have a little bit. More to say about is A red bar bailey. Number bar balian re red planet number five on this is by tape bramble and jeff amir with art by gabriel Walter colors by george blair. If you haven't been following along with the series and you haven't really read much of black hammer. I will say in this last issue in the arc and the the only thing that i can really say about it is this is quite an end to what feels like one of the most real stories in the black hammer universe in the black hammer universe. It's very much a mix of avengers in justice league and a couple of other things all at once but the bar balian story about this martian character. You know that has that comes to earth and changes his personality and we really didn't get to explore him too much outside of some casual bits in some smaller bits and pieces throughout the other black hammer stories but the see this miniseries focused on our balian and explaining why the character is the way that it is is probably it's devastating and incredibly sad Given the subject matter which is his name is not john. John's but i want to say john john's mark mark's thinks is his name he comes to believe it's san francisco working as a police officer right in the middle of the aids epidemic And he is a homosexual man. Or i guess like easily homosexual like martian which makes him homosexual human or something. I don't know how you really explain it So him as a police officer at that time. It's just not great. Obviously and it's it's super powerful story from beginning to end. So i honestly think that if you just picked up this bar red planet by itself and read it you would understand the impact. You don't need to know the whole backstory of everything that happened in the black hammer series to read it I think it's a pretty powerful story and to bring tape prom dhillon. I think the tell that story. Because i don't like jeff lombardo. Thick is trying to appropriate Telling the story of like You know queer person in the in the eighties and nineties in the united states. so is interesting to see that story play out and it's a super moving I will say so. Really really solid I highly recommend that. That whole arc bar bailing red planet. One through five is amazing. The other book that i read. Is i killed adolf hitler. This is by jason published by fanta graphics. I think paul. I think you told me to read this..

"Love to seize tannen. Get a theatrical release. She's one of my favorite dc characters. She's my favorite female character of all time. I love hannah absolutely look. There's something about there's something about a female characters that deal with magic that i love. This is the same goes for marvel. My favorite female marvel characters magic. And i love the tanna i love. I love this this the idea of this movie in the fact that it might set up a justice league dark that was a run from dc. That i absolutely loved one of the best things that came out of the new fifty. Two jeff amir's justice league dark constantine swamp thing animal man tanna. I love it i love it man and i want to see the character done right. I wanna see the casting.

Oh god what was the movie with johnny knoxville. The horror film. That came out i love. Alexandra daddario tastic. Or on you taylor. Joy who played magic. And she was most recently in the queen's gambit if she's done with marvel man fucking. I'd love to see her as the tana's well. I think both both would be fantastic choices for the character but man a new new installment in the extended universe. The project marks the character's first appearance both in the eu and on the big screen. No one has yet been cast as the top had stage illusions illusionists who is also considered one of the most powerful sources in the dc universe inherited from her alchemist father. The character has previously appeared once in live action for him. Played by actress. Surrender swan in a guest starring role in a ladder.

"Oh who's going to do it like let's got to be somebody else. It should just be hidden like. This is his baby. He nailed it in house of x. Number two just write them overseers adding. That'd be amazing. Easier said than done right so earlier. Twenty twenty. I was calculating my own. Take on the comics writer. Who owns the year end. Spurrier was basically the first name they hatami tier two segment for the record. Mytalk one was hickman. Jeff amir and w maxwell prints because ice cream is my favorite cop this year I'd have a spear below the likes of doing ravi now. Maybe some others Marine james tynan lately his. Indy stuff's really good. But either way to right like sprayers high up there and that blend of creator with an x pedigree and a strong creative output in this moment is a hard thing to come by in spurrier will be fantastic addition to the x. office superpower for that s from royal. I'm increasingly resigned to thinking. We won't really be hearing from her again. Until hickman's men endgame is in motion with the exception potentially of a series which probably will be mostly flashbacks. You know two different lifelines with maybe some framing devices sat in presentation. Which again i mean. We're all here for played cannot get your soon enough number. Four on the teaser list. We got maverick. And wolverine aka patchy probably couldn't tell it was woven there because of the patch but that is in fact. Our boy logan so. I'll probably dig deeper into maverick when the character shows up in the poll pages wolverine which has already been announced for wolverine number eight. The three hundred fiftieth anniversary issue. It's going to be from ben percy and cuba and vicky bogdonovich but for now the important details are that maverick is part of team x wolverines crew from the weapon x days. And he's also nineties hell mavericks power. Set is bishop is hell. He absorbs energy which makes sense given both characters are co created by jim lee. Wolverine is wearing his pacifist guys in the promo top five disguise in the history of comics which means we're going to matter poor anytime. Wolverine is dressed up as patch. Pretty good odds. We're going to match poor which is morals hive of criminal scum and villainy in ireland created specifically to do crimes which is always pretty fought mavericks. Most memorable story is his flashback. Debut with wolverine and sabertooth for omega like x. men. I think it's like issues four to seven in the relaunched. So it's the post clermont era in the start of the jim lee era in one thousand ninety one. I think he got john burns. Scripting co plotting involved some extent. Right game percy's use of omega red. Both in the pages of wolverine and x force with omega serving as a and wolfer dracula this story is a clear essential touchpoint flashing back to mavericks debut for my money anytime eric shows up. It means we're in for some weapon x intrigue which i always have a soft spot for. I don't think the mavericks been seen onkar honestly Which is interesting. But the questions i most here are like. What's the status of weapon x. I do think it's notable that when you look at orcas science organization tasked with preventing the extinction of homo sapiens factions of x. Shield sword hydra. Al flight aim hammer armor strike but weapon. X is not mentioned..

"This is the pinnacle of humanity's capacity for evil. And it's just like it's just insane. And i i. It's kind of interesting. Maybe you have the same thought process. But i like independence like we were talking about. Because they're fresh they're new they don't have to try to keep with some continuity from seventy eight years ago but then something like this comes along. It's like well this is perfect. You pulled some great stuff from thirty forty fifty sixty years ago. Continuity in comics is equal parts of the best thing in the worse. Yes there you go because you could not tell this story with the same impact with like black hammer. No you couldn't tell this story with invincible invincib- well now you could well now you. Yeah but it doesn't have eighty year history. There's just not that kind of gravitas to it and you can tell those like you can like the the smart thing that jeff amir's done and black hammer and one day we'll sit and talk about black hammer that we can. We can definitely do that. But one thing jeff amir has done is he's given an idea of a history so we're you have black hammer's only been around five years maybe a little bit longer. He's built this whole world where you could believe that something that happened in world war two which is a story he told matters to a story that set you know a thousand years in the future and it matters now and it matters in like this quantum realm and it matters and he he's done jeff lemaire basically breaks every rule. I could ever come up with comics. He's he's just done the a also side note he's done a sequel slash retelling slash new telling of sweet tooth. And all my buckets. It is so trippy and it shouldn't be allowed like like jeff. Lemaire is one of is one of the preeminent comic book creators and he knows i exist by the way super humble brag. That is not humble. Anyway i can go on the history like you said it's the most the best and worst thing is to have eighty years of history to but jeff was able to pull from these iconic moments and bring back the the comedian with the iconic camera. I mean he used that predominantly especially in issue three of this and just had that look and poll from those traumatic moments and put some iconic characters. You know red hood robin whatever you wanna call him. Barbara bat girl batman altogether plus all those jokers so smart and jason. I'm just going to touch on this real quick one of my favorite selling points for the book every single panel on every single page of every issue of this three issue. Giant-sized epic a masterpiece. It's all like be best things. I've ever seen in one of the reasons that it took forever for this to come out is geoff. Johns and jason facebook both wanted it to be done before the first issue came out and then covid hit and everything you know everything got up but.

"It's one of the best songs. I wonder how much this conversation matters outside of the big to right. Like if you're someone who doesn't work in the big two and comics. Do you still have these like those same kind of careers. Do you still get like tired work. Because when you're working indie creator stuff. I feel like you have a little bit more freedom to like only comic when you have something that lights your fire. Yeah like when that passion hits you and you can just take you take some time off and you find you know especially if you've had some success you can like kinda you're you don't have to constantly be producing. Nettie does now right. I think she does other things and then when she has a comic that she feels like she needs to get out there. She puts it out. It's four or five issues and she does it and then you know maybe it's four or five years before she puts another comic out right right which is a luxury as a greater rights radio. Yeah we can put on whenever we want. It can be free because big and yes. I'm making a direct equivalency between and radiohead. let's go there. We interviewed her. She can be radiohead. So i will say the point that i agree with what you're saying. I do think though that like if you look at maybe the creators who don't have this problem as much right now. Like jeff amir doesn't seem to have Any major like backlash necessarily know extreme production like constant production like no nobody produces like jeff moore. He has stepped away from big to comics in many ways over the last years. I think that helps a lot Charlotte earn the comments just mentioned hickman. Jonathan hickman who has a similar thing stepped away from over for like three like when he comes back to marvel. That's because he has something to say you know he's like hey i want to do this to x. Men and i have the chops to do it. And you know he's probably gonna stop doing exponential a year or two or whatever i don't know and then just focus on his like very esoteric really niche weird comics that come out like a series that comes out three times a month in his sixty pages and it's just charts in. It's like it's specific..

"Love these solo episodes doing these from time to time because it's just you and me talking about nerdy stuff before we dive right in though I want to do a shout out to a listener Matt. D. Over at the sixties Redo podcast, he contacted me about a previous episode and had some good comments about the choose your own adventure and some of the titles he. Enjoyed as a kid, one of them was a book called appointment with fear and so might take a look at doing one of those at a live event with Eddie. So thank you matt for listening and I'll put a link in the show notes to his podcast. It's called the sixties reboot podcast where they recast old TV series with a new cast for a new. Orleans. So thanks appreciate it, and if you want to contact me in comment about the show, you can do that you can go to covert ner dot net and see all the different ways you can contact me by. Or social media. So first topic is Jeff Lemere. If you don't know Jeff, Lemaire is an excellent writer and he has put out some great books like black. Hammer. More recently. But I want to specifically talk about one that I found called sender. And Sender is excellent book. It's about a young robots struggle to stay alive in the universe where all the androids and robots of an outlawed and bounty hunters go from planet to planet to try to find these robots. It's a heartfelt cosmic odyssey that pits humanity machine world against world. Creates sprawling space opera essentially, and it's an excellent book I highly recommend it. So December is the first book, and then a sender is the part two to the story I should mention that it isn't just Jeff Amir Jeff Lemere wrote it, but Dustin win is the artist. A love the combination of this it's it's great storytelling with a gritty art style fits the type of story that Jeff is trying to tell. Now you have descended that goes first, and then a sender is ten years after the December storyline magic has taken over the place of machinery that they got rid of, and so there's more magic than machinery and Mila the daughter of and Ian Efi from the previous book is what this story focuses on. In so it's a really good I highly recommend that they're still in the middle of a center part two of the story you can go get a collection of the first series book one and. On that and enjoy that is just an excellent story again about man versus machine. And you might have this and maybe you don't. But when I read something I can usually tell if it's good very quickly whether it's a book comic book or Podcast, you just can't stop consuming. This is one that you won't be able to put down like most of Lumieres work though it's excellent and addicting the whole future dynamic between robots and humans is fascinating to me and just fascinating to humans in general especially these days where is getting closer and closer to becoming more of. A reality like I said, the art is greedy and fits the story and like I said Gory December first and then chapter two is a senator. Also as I've said before I like a story that has a beginning and an end I don't know if Jeff is going to do something passed part to or not I I kind of doubt it. But at this point I, I like that has that conflict between robots and like how it has a beginning and it's going to haven't yet. I'll put a link in the show notes. So you can find more information about it but another Jeff Lemaire gold standard just like black hammer and some of his other stuff. This is really good stuff and I think you'll like it. Let me know go to covert dot net then you can email me contact me on social media and let me know what you think about December and a center. This next series isn't new, but it's new to me may not be new to you, but maybe it is, and that's why I want to talk about it. Because if you haven't heard of EC comics I, highly recommend you check out some of these old books. EC Comics is a collection from dark horse as reprinted these old comics most recently when you think about Darkhorse you might think they might be down for the count because they have lost a lot of AP's lately and I've talked about that in previous episodes. Simply put they've lost Conan Star Wars and several other AP's at they used to have and that used to be their main staple but they have black hammer, and then they have this one EC archives I think was an excellent thing to do is reprint some old comics but about easy comics entertaining comics more commonly known as easy comics. They were an American publisher of Comic Books Specialized in Hor Crime, fiction satires, military fiction, and science fiction from the forties and fifties. Notably, the tales from the crypt series. That's probably what most of you will know in one, fifty, four or fifty five though censorship prompt EC comics to concentrate on the Humor Magazine mad magazine. If you remember the comics, code of authority was spurred on from. EC Comics because they were considered edgy at that time. Now, you see was privately owned by Maxwell gains and specialized in educational child oriented stories early on later, it was owned by his son William Gains he sold the company in nineteen sixty and was eventually absorbed in the Kinney National Company, which was later purchased by DC comics or Warner brothers. So a little bit of history on where they came from but they were essentially it's kind of interesting. They were essentially the cause of the Comics Code Authority that we all know from the sixties, seventies and eighties until it was abandoned by most of the publishers in the late nineties and early two thousands. Isi had success. With its fresh approach pioneered in forming relationships with its readers through its letters to the editor and it's Fan Organization. So the letter from the editors that we all see in comics that was started by EC comics getting feedback from their fans also, EC comics promoted it stable of illustrators allowing each to sign his art, encouraging them to develop unique styles. The company had digitally published one page biographies of them in the comic books, which was a contrast of industries common practice which credits were often missing. So they really emphasize the creators and try to give them a little bit more push than they did normally. So again, these guys really pushed the envelope at that time. They were also known for their shock endings like weird fantasy number eighteen in nineteen fifty-three the story depicted a human astronaut a representative of the Galactic. Republic visiting the planet Sabrina inhabited by robots, he finds a robe is divided into functionally identical orange and blue races. One of which has fewer rights and privileges than the other. The astronaut determines that due to the robots bigotry the galactic. Republic should not admit the planet until these problems are resolved in the final panel he removes his helmet revealing himself to be a person of color which in Nineteen fifty-three America was shocking. Almost all of their stories had an Indian like this. They were around eight to ten pages typically each story. So not a lot of detail, but still they're able to a lot into those ten pages. Another fund series from EC. Comics is adventures into the unknown. One of the stories simply titled Haunted House might be a scooby doo episode. Then maybe Scooby Doo some of these inspiration came from this because a couple has to stay overnight in a house in order to get their inheritance from a rich relative the lawyer in charge of the estate tries to scare them out of the House so that they won't collect inheritance because in the meantime he was embezzling money from the estate and he made the House appear to be haunted by dressing up in a skeleton costume and of course. You have the reveal at the end where they find out. It's just a guy in a costume. It's a classic story and the art from nineteen, Forty Eight. It just screams forties and fifties and I love it. It's just so cool. Seeing some of this old stuff the time these were printed and written drawn. They were considered pretty edgy like I said this is before the Comics Code of authority. There's some panels where you actually see a guy getting strangle in these dead on the floor with his tongue hanging out which. Today maybe doesn't seem that edgy, but you remember this is early fifties late forties that was very edgy for that time talking about demons and other other things as well. I mean what a great idea though that darkhorse did in reprinting some of these old stories rather than create new characters, new stories why not go back seventy five years and retail stories that a lot of people have never seen before. This concept fits the same. Why recreate the wheel? You have great stories that hardly anybody these days has seen why not reprint them give a chance for new readers to experience and enjoy an old story. I D W also released a special limited run edition that features the best artists edition but I believe Darkhorse..

"Kerosene Barsky here with nick, white and today we're going to do something a little bit different. Because longtime listeners of this show will know that nick and I have kind of a reputation in that nick. Is Quote Unquote the Valiant Guy and I? AM quote, unquote the Archie Guy, so for this episode we decided to swap phantoms. Nick picked a book that he felt was representative of valiant for me. A newbie to valiant and I picked a book that I thought was representative of Archie. Comics for nick to read and we're going to discuss so. Neck how about you tell our fabulous listeners? Which book you pick for me to read? Yeah so the book I picked is bloodshot reborn volume. One This came out in two thousand fifteen. It was part of what was called like the valiant next series of titles towards the end of two thousand fourteen. They were making a really big push. towards introducing some new books. this was the second of the six that rolled out. The first was the valiant by Matt kint and Jeff Amir with art by Paleo Rivera. And this book bloodshot reborn is meant to basically roll out of the valiant and sort of. Basically give people who were new to bloodshot or we're looking for a new entry point. to have a new series to follow and I think they were also trying to give people who were into Jeff who are into Jeff Linear sort of an opportunity to You know pick up a jeff. Lynne Yearbook and so. it's written by Jeff Amir obviously with art, but primarily in largely by MECO Suen, except for the fifth issue, which was Drawn, by Rahul, Allen and Patricia, Martin. So. Yes, that was that was the book I picked. So I had gone into this book with a very limited knowledge of the valiant universe I had read some stuff like. Like many many years ago, like five or six years ago at this point so I didn't really like know a lot about it. I think I had read Was There a book called divinity or something like that. Yeah, that's correct. Yeah today I think I had read that one and liked it and I had read some of the faith stuff. And when that first came out, but like I don't really know anything about the universe so going into this this bloodshot book. I have to admit I. Did have a slight leg up on the exposition in the beginning, explaining the concept of bloodshot because I had just watched the bloodshot movie. And that was my hope that was. That was kind of both in picking this book for you and also sort of looking at this is an opportunity for our listeners to maybe have their own introduction valiant I figured. Something linked to the movie would be a pretty smart way of of navigating that, so that's yeah, that was what informed so okay all right so so reading reading this book was. Interesting for me because it's not the kind of book, I would have chosen. To read because it's very dislike gun, solve all your problems, and that is not the kind of media that I normally gravitate sorts, and I was also annoyed because I like I said I have a very limited experience with valiant, but I know enough to know that the the blood that blood shots like ex girlfriend I guess like I remember that I had read something in which I said. Oh I like that character, so I was very disappointed to start reading this book only to find out that she's dead. Was Not a great starting place for me. Oh, you mean, k., k., the geomancer Yom that one right so. I mean spoilers for anyone who doesn't know anything about valley at, but like they do start the book by saying she's dead and you're like what? Yeah and I get your disappointment in terms of that, and yet I also would temper that by saying who how do I tip toe this real hard This is comics and. If there was one rule that's consistent about Superhero Comics I. Want everyone to think about that rule just from moment or two. And I won't say any more, but I think. Maybe you're picking up what I'm putting down. Do you Get it. All right so so this. This book like you said is very much like we're going to do. Some heavy bloodshot exposition will still showing you story which I did appreciate because within the first four pages I knew what kind of character I was dealing with heavy shades of the punisher nick, I gotta say heavy. Heavy chamber so so. That said that meant that. Because I have seen part of the punisher flakes, because I am a true and proper comic nerd who ever reads the comics? I kind of knew the kind of trope of what I was getting to like terrible and kill people, but now I'm rethinking my actions and might want different, Ford. Maybe those action side consequences. Cleanses, but also guns are still the answer, 'cause. This is what I know and I'm like Oh God okay. But. But It's it. There were a few moments like. That I felt approached this kind of. Uniquely American, Macho man devoid of feelings, journey, or like not in touch with your feelings, journey that we do see in a lot of action or superhero comics that I thought were. Like realistic or borderline subversive enough that I kept being interested for example, there's this part where. Bloodshot is 'cause like the story starts with you finding out that bloodshot used to be like super like strong and fast and tough, and like indestructible, because of these NA- nights in his bloodstream, because comic books and at the start of this book does not have the nights, but he used to, so he's kind of dealing with being. For him the first time because he does not remember his life before bloodshot, but he actually is given the space in the narration to..

"jeff amir" Discussed on I Read Comic Book

"It's like twelve chapters per volume It's probably won't like I said one of the funniest Manga. I've read in a very long time. So I highly recommended. If you just want some goofs Because the art is stupendous it's drawn so serious and then it turns. The camera will turn around and be like he's has to deal with a seven year old kid who's trying to sell him cookies than actually a person who's come to his house to murder him. it's in its written so well like every every joke opens up the same. It's very serious until you realize what the actual thing that's happening is is revealed so highly recommend that the other book that I read was ludicrous. Number one like I said I realized that comic books really did come out last week But we didn't talk about them so The book that I would have picked. Anyways would have been ludicrous number. One this is Jim Rossignol with Karen Gillan art by Jeff stokely and Tamra bond villain and yeah. This is the wild and crazy. Book that I think people have been looking forward to for a while. Curing Gillan has been fairly planning on releasing this book for many many years. He's been working with jeff to try to our Jim to make it actually happened And I think Jeff Stokely Ian Tamblyn in and made this book the wildest in craziest thing ever really looking forward to number two because number one barely made a lick of sense. But I think that's because I think between Jim and cure in. They're trying to be a little bit more unhinged than I think. At least I'm not too familiar with Jim's work but I know during Dylan's work He's not nearly that unhinged Compared to someone like grant Morrison or worn LS or an Allen. More whatever you know these British writers that tend to go off the fucking deep end with wild shit and then somehow managed to wrap it up for good or for bad But I think that With this series with ludicrous rats during Gillan is really trying to be a little bit more wild and crazy and it's very very clear That's how that's what they're going with At least in the first issue so I'm excited to read more. I'm sure there's some Meta commentary that I'm not smart enough to understand in this book but for what it is what I read. I thought it was pretty finding entertaining. It'll be interesting to see where it goes because the whole goal of the of the book is. You must be ludicrous. You must be wild. You must be Not Trying too hard but be insane and I think that's a pretty fun concept to run with because it allows for cartoony antics at the same time as people having serious problems in discussions Lot of sexes involved. Lot of Just asinine things happened throughout so excited to see how wild and crazy. This book skits But anyways let's let's talk about comic books that are coming out in the upcoming week. Feels good to say that phrase comic books are dropping on May Twenty seven two thousand and twenty. What are you both excited for this week? I'm going to kick it back to you nick so for me. We're GONNA talk about Jeff Amir Again. I know that's the shocking gasp So the first volume of family tree comes out. This is a serious from written by. Jeff Linear art by Phil. Hester inks by Eric Gap stor colors by Ryan Cody letters by Steve wants the premises as follows quote when an eight year old girl begins to transform into a tree or single mom troubled brother and possibly insane grandfather embark on a bizarre and heart wrenching odyssey across the back roads of America desperately searching for a way to Kerr. That's not not curse desperately searching for a way to to cure her horrifying transformation before it's too late so it feels a lot like sweet tooth honestly. Yeah that was going. Say that sounds a lot like sweet tooth but it's more about how a kid a Kid. I guess he was kind of a kid and sweet tooth. I guess guess sorry I should say it's more like sweet tooth was about the kid. This is more about family. Sure yeah so it's a lot of Lumieres Strong points Family stories stories about rural slash farming slash. Small town living some horror elements in there. So I feel like it's it's a lot of what we've kind of come to expect from him but also again as I said it does seem to hearken back to sweet tooth more than anything else which I think is arguably us going to say the first title that put him on the map although maybe that was Essex County who knows I should know that's the correct answer. so yeah. I think pairing up with Hester was the smart choice Hesters actually no slouch of an author. Himself I read his serious mythic which he wrote for image a few years ago and I thoroughly enjoyed out Lemere Describes the book in an interview with sci-fi as a work that quote combines all of my storytelling obsessions into a love letter to David Lynch. And now more all filtered through Phil hesters incredible vision at Sprawling new horror mythology set against the family road trip against across America in the nineteen nineties. Which it's like jeeze like hedge your bets like maybe don't set people up for things like maybe it should be like. Hey this is a book you might like. It's possible you won't. This is also why. I'm not doing marketing for image comics. But Yeah I would encourage people to check out some of the preview art. I think are might be a little kind of nineties loose aesthetic for some people. I think are works for this book. I think it's a good pairing for this title But Yeah I'm sure some people will say I don't I don't know if this is for me but I'm I'm I'm pretty on board. I didn't hear much when it was coming out and single issues but I think also some of those single issues were starting to drop as things were getting a little bit wild around the world and so there wasn't as much attention there so I'm very excited to read this as a collected volume so I I remember seeing this thinking. Oh I'll pick up the collection. I had no idea when it was coming out. I just really quick before Passover Decay. I do of a small story about Phil Hester Really really obsessed with his book. Fire breather that he did over at image Short lived series it kind of lived in the shared quote unquote shared universe. That image was creating a little bit. That was kind of set up between invincible. Astounding Wolf Man on Tech Jacket. Spawn was in their savage dragon. Nailed it a big crossover at one. Point in fire-breathing was another character that I really liked and obsessed with the book and so I had brought all the single issues that I had to see tweets or no. This was before firebird. There came out with it had been announced. But I I I saw Phil Hester. I'd read some other stuff that he had done. I had brought some issues with that. I wanted to get signed for me. And this is C. To maybe like the first or second year and I had like a sketchbook for of gambits that I was trying to get And I was poor and I didn't have any money so I was thinking I'll just maybe walk over and ask if people do free sketches anti brought these books up the Phil Hester and Adams. Mannerly love this stuff. I really love everything you're doing and I was like. Hey I know that you also draw. Would you be up for drawing like a gambit in my book and he looked at me and look down all my books and he said Shirk it. Hold on a second like. He was not pleased that I had asked him. But he pulled out a permanent marker and he drew this beautiful sketch like it took him ten minutes. He drew the beautiful sketchbook that I have around my house somewhere But I always treasure that because I know like since then you know. I always pay for commissions sketches. I like. I have the money to do so I always feel bad about it. Know asking for anything for free but at the time I was just like I just WanNa get some sketches in. There were some web comic artists who were all for it. They were doing it so I just. I didn't know who really I was. Just didn't know if this was a regular thing or not and I asked him and he was he was he was very nice about it but Yeah that's my my one Phil Hester story one day. I want to get like a massive a really nice commission from him because his art is in fucking credible But he was kind enough to give me a free sketch that I will always treasure So anyways Kate what about you? What are you excited for this upcoming week?.

"For our show this week. Our topic is a little strange while. I'm I don't know why I think it's strange but for some reason asking someone who's your favorite comic book Creator is a little odd. But I think that I have two people on the show this week that I can easily ask that question because I know that they have answered so with with the actual topic itself being first exposure. What was your first comic? You read by your favorite creator or creative team. How do you see that series now? I have a bunch of follow up questions so that but I think we may know some of the answers to these tears. I think we all know nick. I want to hear from you first about like. What's your favorite comic? What's the first comic that you've read from your favorite creative team? What what's on your list? Well I just want to say up front like I want to thank Mike for for posing like an awful lake for for for an indecisive person this is just a this is torture because it's not only is it like well who's your favorite which of course like don't get me started that's terrible. Don't make people choose but then it's like hey can you remember the first comic McKee read by that person so then it turns into this like how. How good is your memory because yeah I feel basically this? Is this test this question. Should it'd be an ARP memory exam more or less nicb episode three hundred. I plan to break. You just want you yeah. So what's what's funny is at. I started reading animal man. 'cause I was thinking well that's the first book I've read by Jeff Amir and maybe about an issue in. I thought a little bit deeper and then I was like Shit. That's wrong. The first the Mir book I ever read was actually kid. Eternity number one which was a one shot that he did for DC With Coley Holy Hammer on art and Full Credit Zander. Zander is actually the person who who got this for me. He was at Cardi's he said. Can I grab some comics for you. And I said just pick some things out and so he basically did a grab bag of books and it was kid. Eternity and it was also The French comic thirteen number one and that's also become one of my favorites but It was it was a weird book because I remember So he owns this national comics imprint. And they did this series of one shots kid. Eternity being one of them Others being looker. Madame Max Rosen Thorn And and the idea was that they were gonNA use these one shots to Have them as entry points to inject new characters into the new fifty two which sounds great great etc.. I don't think any of these characters saw the light of day after their one shot I was gonNA say none of these names sound familiar to me. That's right that's right. We never saw any of them again. which which was a tragedy because I really enjoyed kid eternity and it was? This is a this is interesting as well was awesome. lemere reviving A Morrison character. So I suppose it's appropriate appropriately. It's appropriate enough that the book I ended up reading was animal man which is once again. Jeff Amir reviving a grant Morrison character. Again let me be clear. I know that Grant Morrison did not create free as the character but Lanier was building on a lot of The A lot of the character that Moore had built up specifically So it was. It was interesting to return to. That book It was basically me having a lot of. Oh I totally forgot that this happens opens in this book moments which is again not really reassuring for someone's memory when I was done with this. I immediately downloaded the luminosity APP. Because like I I don't have much more to lose at this point like I gotTa Get I. GotTa master tile matching and and things like that Well given the number of of comics and stories and just massive numbers of words that we take in. It's not really something you can expect to do. You can't really expect to remember every single thing that you read five plus years ago. I think that's okay. It's that's what a fake fan would say Michael so I'm glad that I'm right now. I'm just I'm just kidding. I'm just kidding I now I get. I mean just really quick Tia. Let's let's jump over to you. I mean nick it sounds to me like animal. Man was really the book that kind of set you on the path breath of. Let's just keep reading Jeff Lemere books until the day that I die whereas Tia like what was the book that really got you into your your creative team. I'm love well. I read journey and a mystery which got me hooked on Kieron's writing and signed then because like young avengers is sort of the next logical book to read in the Bullet Loki story from from there. That's what introduced me to Jamie. And then I realized that they were like comics married and had a uh other work together like fauna Graham and also fodder grim was like all the things for me To like all the music that I liked and like weird magic stuff and like just kind of an enigmatic story and I was like Oh yes my people I have found you and you and ah since then you hooked right I mean is there. Is There Gillan Book that you haven't tried yet or Jamie and Kieran Book. I think after after all the phonogram stuff they did wicked and divined vying for five years there was really anything else that try by the both of them shaming I think has done some other marvel work that I haven't red. I WanNa say it's X.. Many of some kind perhaps I forget an and I also did not agreed. Kieron's iron man. I just don't care about iron man takes. I mean even foggy on a helicopter right now coming to you couldn't make and I even bought all of them. I remember like this was back when I was just slake new to comics and I would go on comics allergy and this was I think also during in-app purchases and they were like. Hey do you want to buy every issue of this this word of iron man and I was like Yep Shirley it on me and I wouldn't literally just like you know be laying in bed at three o'clock in the morning being like add fifty bucks to cart. Why not uh-huh and I've been there? I remember those days. They were not good and I don't even think I read all of them because I was just like. Oh iron man then he Your view okay And I also didn't like I've read some Uber but it's just like not my genre onramp war porn to a certain extent I get that but as a team I've read other stuff. Yeah yeah that makes sense. I mean it's interesting so I guess like that you do bring up an interesting point here that like yes. You may have eight creator that you go to for anything you know maybe try try one issue of something that they do even if it's not your bag such as an iron man nick. I'm curious to know you know. Do you have that with Jeff. We can get to whatever my pick. Doc is because I had the same level of indecision I realized that the Creator that I always try the number ones for is Ed Brubaker and mostly because I read sleepless when I was really I I getting into comics beyond just big to stuff and I read sleeper or sleeper. Which is the crime? Knew our superhero story that was published by wild storm. So it's technically was like DC book before it was fully DC. I don't know but I got into that ever since. Then I've tried every single brubaker and Phillips Book. That's come out. I should say I read or own them all in some capacity because they're like my my cure in Jamie to a certain extent where it's just like. Oh there they have a book coming out. That's that's what I'm buying but this going back to my original question just to get my answer out of the way. Is there a book that you've you've picked up by low or you haven't picked up by Lanier even though you're like I really want to read everything that this guy does but you just weren't turned onto it for some reason go. Yeah I mean. Absolutely well he he he definitely has a clunker and is its name is a Justice League. United Oh okay. What do you work for you? The Book Oh Man I think a lot of it to be fair was DC editorial DC editorial it was not great during the new fifty two but I think it was even even worse towards the beginning and This this was a few years in and the whole conceit of the book was supposed to be that it was going to be Justice League but much like Jeff Amir was going to be Canadian flavored And that it was also going to go into space and yeah those two don't releasing mutual considering one's extraterrestrial and the others not ought but it was Jeff Amir and I thought I was going to have my maple syrup and eat it too or something else. That's Canadian Putin hum and something happened. There was some some shit went down in editorial in editorial was like no. This shit's going to space space and space alone and so the candidate stuff which was which really sucked because he created a new. A new character. her name was equinox and She was a native American character although I think in Canada Canada don't they say native peoples uh-huh anyway yeah and sell it out. You can have the right term for the indigenous people of Canada. uh-huh yeah exactly. People in Michigan. Have a real hard time talking about Canada. Talking about a cousin that lived at your house for a long time and so that was going to be awesome and they created the he created this new character and he he did a lot of Focus testing with the character with with individuals Up in Canada and it was going to be awesome and then in and then they were like no just space and it just it wasn't enjoyable There were some major art issues on that book. They were just. It was just rotating through artist after artist after artists. And I mean Jeff Amir is kind of one of those writers who at this. The point is sort of like he has talked about before for better for worse he has like seven people in his rolodex. That's it and so normally when he does the project. It's one of those seven people and you could tell that lake DC editorial control was like reporting up this book like every month no delays and so we had books where they were to artists sharing the book and it was very not linear. It was bad and entering them. So I'm having flashbacks right now. Did you pick up that whole run or something. I mean like I got support Jeffey through the tough times I see I see interesting interesting so so you know with the holy smokes. Let me just start my whole brain over. That's fine so the question that I guess I I want to do next is what keeps you coming back to these creators..

"There's ghosts here the Catholics were right about about purgatory. So I am drawn to read issue number two. It was very cute. Man I just Google this holy cow. This is is like the prettiest book I've ever seen. Yeah how how do you draw so many pretty people had one book. I don't understand this is like I don't know if you guys were. It's not girl by Brian. Lio Molly and her name is escaping me but everybody in that book is also very pretty in like super hot it's like quicken and divine some people out there. Just have this talent to draw incredibly beautiful people. This is exactly one of those books. Yeah there's also really good fashion in this book like all. The clothes looked really good. Yes that's the snack girl vibe. I was kind of pulling from that. You know the other number one I picked up was invisible kingdom It's written by g Willow Wilson with art by Christian war and letters by Selker Cape Riano and. This sounded really familiar when I was at the shop but it wasn't online to read list so I picked it up on a whim but it turns out that we have talked about it on the show before and that volume one is already out so this turned out really well for me because issue number one on which might still had for some reason was fantastic and I want to read volume one immediately please This book is like corporate espionage on Asia but in space and there's two protagonists Storylines one of them is kind of reminiscent of the firefly smuggler plotline but she's like Captain of a transport crew which is working legally for a corporate V. Corporation and the other story line is a nun in o o n e nun but it is a religious community so there's two very different storylines but I think that they're both heading in the same direction in about figuring out what's going on with this corporation And I was just so impressed by character building. Everybody was so real. All of their relationships with people who are really real will which was not gray in some cases because the none is a lot of racism because their race has four genders which is in writing but doesn't seem to be a great thing in this planet that they're on at the moment so I'm just super into the story I want to learn more and luckily the whole arc is out so and Christian wards are is UN fucking believable. This dude was made to draw high. Sifi crazy concept's stuff. I I love this book it's beautiful. I'm glad that you got on board. Kate is also what I'm saying. I'm just shocked. I didn't put it on my to read list. I mean I'm usually drawn to the stuff that you the you talk about Mike. And that's just never made it onto my good reads my good reads account for some reason at the start giving you a list for me this week. I read some books like on and off. I don't know what it is. I just haven't had the energy to read too much but I did like last Sunday. I think after the show I basically sat down and read like thirty comics in a row so I kind of made up for a whole week's worth of reading of the two books I do want to talk about really quick are a sender under volume one. This is Jeff Amir destined to win. This is the continuation of their sender series. And all I want to say fucking am I goddamn heart. Everything is terrible and broken inside out of me and this book is the reason for that. It's fantastic it's a great continuation. It doesn't feel like like I missed anything. I was worried there was going to be like a ton of history to to fill things in between descended into center and the way that the story is crafted. It's done in such a way that they're they're not GonNa win and explain things to you as the books going on and so for people like me who have been reading defender since the beginning It wasn't anything new but it was like a nice refresher of. Oh here. Are these people. Here's this thing. Here's what subtly changed from when we last left the story because there's a time jump and yeah I don't WanNa spoil anything because I think y'all should stop what you're doing. Go read all of December and then a sender volume one and then turn this episode back on. But it's a beautiful book. New Ends are is as expected in unbelievably precise somehow with watercolor and impresses me. Every single page turn throughout this volume. I think his work has only gotten better since volume one since the first issue of dissenter. And I mean this is saying from a guy who's absolutely established in comics. It's not like no one just started the dues been doing comic books for years. But you can. You can tell by reading this book that he's really kind of honed in on how to do this. Very precise style of pencils with very elaborate watercolors on top of it. And it's always impressive to see with this book especially with the range of characters and shapes and to do high Sifi that I usually requires a precise Clayton crain style to see. Be Done with this watercolor. That's usually very flowing airy is very impressive aggressive in this issue in this volume specific really touches on that even even to some fantasy elements. I won't go into that. It's very very good otherwise I also read this independent book. It's called meal. Published by Iron Circus Comics is by blue deliquency. Salil whole excuse me and Salil Ho. It's a food comic that is essentially about how to make food with insects and the history behind that to a certain extent the story follows close a main character who basically moves across the country to try to get a job at this restaurant. That's GONNA Open Up. That's only going to serve. Food based products are food products that have insects in them and the idea is like. Hey It's an Asian let Latin fusion kind of place so you can get Tacos or you can get or you can get something and it's going to have insects in it. In some capacity as the protein instead of chicken or beef or Tofu. And it's a really interesting concept. I picked this up at flame con on earlier this year just because I love blues work if you haven't read Oh human star boy. It's probably the best web comic I've ever read hits you right in the fields and it's such an interesting strange range concept that I I can't recommend it enough. Imagine robots in the future but also to dudes are in love. That's kind of the basis of it and the meal is a is a very down to Earth real story on this. I guess this person moves across the country to go work at this restaurant and along the way they kind of get a history of of the handful of cultures particularly Mexican Cambodian and History from the people that she meets about these cultures that have used insects in their food for generations and the main character ourself. You know she is half Japanese and she talks about how she met her grandparents in Japan and they went and had crickets and or these Japanese japanese-style crickets I don't remember what they're called but it's a really interesting. Look at an alternate take on vegetarianism and I think that kind of question. The air is eating. Insects still consider vegetarianism but even still I really enjoyed it. It was like a nice quick book. It's like one hundred twenty pages of the some recipes in the back on if you WANNA get your own meal worms. Here's how you make mealworm Tacos really really cool so I highly recommend this to people if you guys get a chance so mike the obviously obviously you're going to have to try the recipes out right well and the thing is like I'm not really scared to eat a mealworm. It's the Tarantulas that I'm scared to eat. I'm I'm not really up. Yeah they all they talk about. There's this like you deep. Fry a tarantula and that's like a snack and I'm like it sounds cooling concept but I don't know if I could eat a spider especially because it's still in the spider shape whereas with meal worms you you know you can kinda grind them up or you can smash them up and stuff and they don't really look like meal worms anymore So I don't know but yeah I mean I'm not opposed to trying it. I just want him bad in the kitchen in two. I don't even know where I could. I live in New York. I could probably find somewhere that will we'll worms and tarantulas and stuff and you tickets to eat but just a matter of actually putting the meal together so I don't know maybe I'll send it over to you Paul and you can. You can tell me Your your vegetarian. So you'll try weird shit right. That's how Eating animals thing is kind of A. Oh that's not. Yeah but let's say let's let's move on to talk about comic books. Folks that are coming out this upcoming week comics dropping on November twentieth. Two Thousand Nineteen. Let's hear what you guys are excited about this week. Let's start with you kate. I I just want everybody. Yeah no the I D W is putting out a big hero six comic yes like the movie And it looks like it's directed toward younger kids so it's probably not something that I'm GonNa in and check out but if you have kids or if you like kid comics The movie was delightful so the comical probably be delightful. But what I'm excited for. Is this grass kings volume two by Ken entirely Jenkins I read the first volume and trade. And so I've been trading the second volume. This title has totally fallen off my radar. I didn't even realize that it was still going on. But I'm very excited. That volume two is out and Paul. What about you? Well as I mentioned. I want to talk more about Matt Fraction and specifically his book Superman's Pal. Jimmy Olsen issue number five comes out this week and this has been probably the funniest book on the stands as the past. Few months has been coming out. So it's got Matt Fraction writing at Steve Lieber on on our work with colors by Nathan Fairbairn It to Jimmy Olsen book but what fraction and Lieber Lieber have done is done in. Oh my gosh to the silver age. Superman spelled Jimmy Olsen book right without it being without like making fun of it it the same. They're leaning into the silliness of it and kind of making it a sort of Meta textual Book but it's a lot of like sort of like but it's not that smart. Ah You know what I mean like. It's it's just a fun book without having making think too much about it. I guess is what I'm trying to say. You know what I mean. Yeah Yeah self-aware is self aware without making fun of the source material. And the the premise is that what Jimmy Olsen There's a death threat against him so he has to leave metropolis so he goes to Gotham as a underserve witness protection. So he's living in Gotham as a logger named Timmy. Olsen and the last the last issue he was doing a series of more elaborate video like pranks in in order to get batmans attention since superman can't help them out because that'll reveal his identity so but it just seems like doing that to get spam as attention is a bad idea idea. I don't know yeah right so at the same time fraction and Lieber also giving you a back x story about Olson's lineage turns out. His family has been feuding with LEX. Luger lex Luther family in metropolis for generations So get back story there and those sections the humor that fractions doing as breaking the fourth wall. It reminds me if I'm dating myself With the references Saddam. But if anyone's ever watched rock and Boeing Co. which is even before my time the humor is very reminiscent reminiscent of rocky and Boeing coal. which is kind of a treat because I remember watching herself when I was a kid? Oh Yeah me too. I watched it as a kid. Okay that's great stuff. Yeah so yeah it's a really fun book It definitely stands out. It's a nice a counter example to who the sort of.

"And then scholar call or something one of the thin. Guardians, like, basically, had suspenders on as a shirt. Yeah. That. Yeah. But in general, I mean, the art style and such it was. All right. I mean, it, it would be something that if I saw in one of today's books, I'd be kind of alarmed by, like, who is this person have been up and working for the last forty years or something, but it was fine. Yeah. I think what's interesting is that I think drugs are works really well for scifi stuff, because I thought that the invaders, they looked really cool like their helmets and their spaceship and stuff. Look, really cool. But his real life like in his his real life people in real life world felt more cartoonish to me. Compared to some of the scifi stuff they didn't. And then, that's I mean, that's whatever like I really like the way he drew, Martian, manhunter. I thought that was really great. But his humans looked kind of thought, as Saran looked really good, too. Yeah. Superman was pretty good, too. Aliens just aliens, only even if they left humans. Yeah. This is this is really interesting book. I mean, I think I don't think it's perfect. I think it's got a lot of stuff going for it. But it's clunky. I volume and I think if you read on you won't notice much clunky nece. But yeah, I mean I don't really have too much more to say about this. So we can we can wrap up right here guys unless you guys have any final thoughts. I just wanted to say that I happen to have read, Jeff laniers animal man. A couple months ago. Okay. Really glad that I noticed that this wasn't the same creator because I may have just reread Jeff laniers volume one and gone into this episode talking about that one and bent. Holy smokes. But Mike, I think that you've also read Jeff Amir's animal man. Do you feel like this series would flow into that series? All right. Oh, no. Not. I, I mean Nick I, I will, I will give Nick his soapbox to preach the gospel about that book in a second. But no, I think buddy, Baker feels the same. I think is son is a definitely a little bit different. Yeah. I think there's an, it's an interesting Jeff Lemaire take on animal man, feels very parallel university. It was like he knew he read Morrison's animal, man. And he knew who the character was and UC some parallels. But on the whole, I don't think that they're, they're very close at all side of them being called the same character and having the same powers. I think Lemere does a really good job of evolving. Animal man, emotionally and doing more to build some do some world building. Whereas Morrison was really trying to develop animal man, and do something specific about bad superheroes. I guess that's the only that's the only simple way, I can describe it just say that this volume really informed. A lot of the question that I had about laniers book slow like, okay, specifically, why the character design was the way that it was like his sons still has a mullet and his wife style. Yeah. Eighties. I did really enjoy seeing the daughter in this volume after all of the things that happened to her and Amir's run. She's just an innocent little girl in this the kidding. That's it. That's If it. you've read the Lemere run, you're not a fan of it, right? I don't even like people insinuating that, that's a joke. No. I actually love Lumieres run. I think that obviously, there's, there's commonality Lemere shifts in more into being in indie film, after if I recall exactly instead of stuntman, and of course, despite the fact that Lumieres version of the, you know, the new fifty two was much more about in integrated all encompassing very involved unified universe Lemere still kept his book fairly isolated as opposed to some of the stuff that you see in, in Morrison's where you have superman, and, and Marsha manhunter and the likes. And of course, I think he pivoted the book more towards horror. I would argue yet, which I think does eventually happen following more since departure. I think when Jamie, the guy who I wrote hell blazer when he takes over animal man the book. Give more towards horror unsurprisingly. Yeah. There's a lot that you can go with in Amir does that I think, you know, animal man has a lot of potential for that. Yeah. I mean I, I would say if you like if you even slightly enjoyed one of the two series you could probably, you know, put up with the other even though I know a lot of people have mixed feelings about travel forms art. Which, you know, that's it's too bad. You feel that way. I guess. No trouble form. I think is a very like divisive artist totally. And it's there's nothing wrong with not liking that art style, because it's very in your face. It feels really visceral compared to something like this, which feels very eighty s know. Yeah. Yeah. No, I agree. But yeah, I think I mean to Nick's point if you read one or the other, you probably get in on the other the opposite. Whatever if you read the eighties version read the new fifty two I think they're both really good jumping on for the character. I don't wanna say they completely, like art related to, you know, I was just saying that to make a joke Kate, but I think it's interesting to see to take on the same character in same like similar origins. And it's good. I dunno. It was really good. Comparison, I think having read the animal man from the navy to made me wanna read the this version. I think I enjoyed it more because of that. So maybe this Romeo really changes up the family dynamics to argue it's not as much about, like, the, the kids feel very much like an AB sitcom where it's oh man dad, you're the worst or whatever. And then track so Gotcha. Well, let me know if you guys keep reading this, I mean, I don't know Nick, if you've completely read through all of this, but Kate, if you read it as well. Let me know because I'd be interested to hear your thoughts as the story progresses. I.

"Figured out an easy setup and made it easy. I've I've been on podcast where people have the. Complicated audio board and all that stuff. And I'm like that's too much work guys. Yeah. It does seem like that. And that's we've been teetering in the middle there where we've had blue microphones. We still have them. And then we started getting into more and more stuff. And it turns out that that costs money. I'll tell you this the trick. If anybody out there is wanting to start a podcast the trick is not your microphone the trick. Is where you record. Yeah. Because if you're in a room that doesn't have an echo if you're in a room that is, you know. I'd say acoustically sound like for good recording doesn't matter. What Mike you have? You can have a Mike that cheapo Mike that you bought from WalMart or radio shack, and it would sound good in that room. It's more your room than your mic. But everybody thinks it's by the expensive, Mike, and it's not sure that's and that's the big argument between like condenser Mike's dynamic that's getting way into it. But that's on read it. They always have that discussion between dynamic microphones and can go stay off read it, man. I do I'm on too much. It's like a deep dark hole that uh. So just real quick when we were talking about like comic books for newbie readers. What would be a couple comic books that you would throw out there the say like if you're brand new into comic books. This is something you could read. Well, see that's a very difficult question. Because that to me is very similar to people being like, I've never seen a movie before. What do I say? Like, it's you know, it all depends on the person. So I can break it down by genres. I think if you're into scary movies or horror of any kind. I would out lock and key. It's when I was number one on my list for new readers think. Yeah. It's a great great great book in its written by the son of Stephen King. It's such a good introductory book. That's good that you don't even know you're reading comic book. It's just like, I don't know you just get lost in, you know, it's really good. It's it's it's one of it's one of the better ones. If let's see trying to think of a good superhero one. Pool. If you're if you're I would say, if you're if you're wanting to just check out a good superhero story. So this is a tough one. I would go with all star superman is a pretty safe choice as well as Batman year. One just depending on your tastes, whether you're superman person or a bad person. Because I think all star superman can show you how cosmic superman can get and you don't need to know any of the previous history. And then Batman, you're one is basically Batman begins at account book form, I think if you're into science fiction or stuff like that nature. I would highly recommend a dissenter who or. Yeah. By Jeff Amir or I would recommend saga. Ilya. That's always on the top of our list. We we love saga, and if you're into like western kind of crime books for comic books. I would my picks would be. Criminal by Ed brubaker that was an anthology series each ballrooms a different story. You don't need to know about any of the other stories. It's really good the other one I would pick would be the six gun by Cullen Bunn. Yeah. I'm a backer on his Kickstarter for his for metro. I don't know if you've seen that new by and to. I haven't read that book yet. But I keep hearing great things about it. So I definitely want to check that when I know on our list on super awesome. He's been nothing. But lovely to me every time. I asked him a question. I've I've done what you guys have done to me where I've been linked. Hey cullen. How's this thing work? Yeah. No. He's super cool. So everything I read on you know, because I and his Kickstarter all the messages, they send and everything is is really awesome. I know one that was on the top of both of our lists. Is why the last man we love that books. Oh, that's a good. That's a good choice. Just an man is also Sam Neill gamons a good choice as well. It it might scare away newer readers because the arts a little dated. But I still think the stories really strong the stories phenomenal. I love San as well. Yes. So you have some things coming up in the future. Tell us about it. Whatever what would honor what do you? Well, the the biggest thing that's coming up is. I have a pros book called super soldiers. That's gonna come out. I believe in June. I believe the release dates June fifteen and it's a nonfiction book the pros book. There's no pictures, sadly and those two we do. We do it's about because I don't I don't know if you guys know it on romaine people in the internet. I I was in the army yet. So that was another one thing that he. When he found that out. He's like, oh, he's from a small town in Kansas. And he was. So Jerry, so yeah, thank you for your service, Jerry. Yeah. I think we overlapped when we because you deployed to Iraq right idea. I went in two thousand five. Yeah. I was there. Oh, six of us. So so we waved his planes with we did that's cool, man. So super soldiers is take sixteen comic book characters some are heroes. Villains anti heroes that have served in the American military, and I compare how their military experiences have affected their writing. And also I throw in a lot of personal stories to them. So it's basically a giant salute to come characters that have served and the US military, and I'm I'm very proud of it. It's very personal at the little lot of Iraq's stories in there. You know, and as you can guess captain America is the first chapter so, but you can go find on Amazon right now with the temp cover a really bad description because it hasn't been filled out yet. But you can pre-order right now, if you really desire to and that would be awesome. But if you wait I will I'm going to eventually do a book plate where if you if you pre. Order a copy the book, and you send me the receipt. I'm gonna mail you a book played so you can have an autograph copy of the book. But so I have that geek history lessons the weekly podcast that comes out every single week. And then we're also going to be dropping reduce some really cool over on my patron. A patriot dot com slash Johnson. Which I'm a patriot for you. Thank you. Well, then, you know about crisis club, which is this giant twelve part video essay series that we're going to do where we're to break down every issue of Chrysler nurse over the twenty nineteen year leading up to the giant DC V crossover. So so that's the big thing that we're doing over there. And if that really works and takes off, then it'd be a thing we do every year. So if you wanna check that out it's over my patriot. Yeah, I would definitely recommend anybody out there that doesn't know about patriotic to get on there and find some of your favorite creators and just support them that way. I mean, I know they take their little cut or whatever. But. I just think it's such a great great way to support people and doing the things that you want to do know as you guys know like we a
