035 – B’wana Beast

Fulfilling a request by my pal Joe G. The only thing I really know about B’wana Beast is from his appearance in Grant Morrison’s Animal Man comic, and appearing on a Batman: Brave and The Bold, the Justice League cartoon (which I Joe and I do a podcast about) and having more action figures than …

034 – Daredevil vs. Daredevil

I have gone on at length about my love of Marvel Comics’ Daredevil before, so again, he’ll probably pop up once or twice throughout the next year. Decided to have a DD vs. DD faceoff with the Golden Age Daredevil (or Death Defying Devil, if you’re Alex Ross and Dynamite). I love the bizarreness in …

033 – Mr. Terrific

As I think I mentioned when I did The Spectre piece earlier, I was a big fan of the John Ostrander/Tom Mandrake run on the book. During the later part of their story, they introduced Michael Holt as a suicidal man that The Spectre helps out by telling Holt the life story of Terry Sloan, …

032 – Human Torch

Eh. Human Torch. He’s dead. Spoilers. My guess: He’ll be back in about 11 months, right around the time that the Fantastic Four comic would have reached issue #600.

031 – Silber

My friend Brian John Mitchell is kind of a jackass, but he’s a loveable one. He’s also super talented, extremely ambitious and the single most productive human being I’ve ever met. He owns and operates his own record label/comic publishing/web-zine empire called Silber Media. I think he’s also in 38 different bands, he’s constantly touring …

030 – The Spectre

This did not turn out as I had hoped. I was able to channel my inner Burne Hogarth a little, though. John Ostrander and Tom Mandrake’s Spectre is one of the most underrated comics ever published, and it’s criminal that DC a) has never properly reprinted the book and b) soiled the character with Hal …

029 – Peter Parker

I might try to draw more superhero secret identities. We’ll see.

028 – White Trash Green Arrow and Black Canary

Ok, so let’s get this out of the way, first. I love Green Arrow. I’m a huge fan of Mike Grell’s run, the legendary Denny O’Neill/Neal Adams revamp, and apparently the only person who thought Judd Winick did a great job in his short run. I even really dig Chuck Dixon’s run, especially the Connor …

027 – Zombie

I’ssa zombie. Oddly enough, I just started playing Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare. Western zombies. I’m a little rattled right now.

026 – Barney Miller

Barney Miller was always a favorite show of mine as a kid, and one of the rare shows that, while dated, still really holds up. I wish there were more seasons available on DVD. By the way, the first person to tell me about Hulu, Vudu, Netflix Instant or FuckU or whatever else video streaming …
