Episode #18 – Mild Mannered Slices of Life

26 08 2009

It’s Special Treat Week again, as we flip everything all topsy-turvy to bring you a buffet–a veritable smorgasbord if you will–of webcomics reviews! Though sadly missing Mike the Mild Mannered Music Man, Alex and Sam wade through a pile of each others’ favorite webcomics, keepin’ it short and pithy all the way. Who is Charles Christopher and why is he so abominable? What makes “A Softer World” so damned creepy? And just how much does Sam like awkward female protagonists, anyway? All of the answers and more lie in wait for you!

And you better not miss our upcoming very special feature–highlights from Alex’s three interviews with Bobby Timony of Twin Comics, Scott Weinstein of After School Agent and Porter Mason, the cartoonist behind “Bassist Wanted.” You can’t find this stuff anywhere but here! Check it out!

Let me just go ahead and Spoil my Pick for the Week now

16 07 2009

Spoiler alert! Mild Mannered Photographer here to tell you that MADAME XANADU VOL. 1: DISENCHANTED is going to be my pick of the week for the next podcast, you may think I would pick the beginning of Andy Diggle’s run of Thunderbolts, which is really good, but it’s hardcover and 25 buckaroonies.  Sure I’ve bought hardcover trades for 25 bucks, but instead I picked up the first volume of Madame Xanadu for 3 simple reasons:

  1. TEN issues in one trade, that’s 240 pages total!!!
  2. The Trade only costs $12.99!!!
  3. The artist for Madame Xanadu, Amy Reeder Hadley drew a jaw droppingly beautiful free sketch for me at Mocca-Fest

If you know me at all you will know that I will quickly become a fan of any artist if I receive free art from them and I then want to buy anything they have done when it comes out in trades. (I’m looking at you Chris Giarusso) But Amy was actually cool enough to let me videotape her while she was sketching and I asked her some questions, so check it out below because it was super neat and I didn’t get a chance to post this video when I first took it after Mocca Fest, but now its timely. 🙂

And come on, you get ten issues for only 13 bucks, that’s a value you don’t often see in many trades. I haven’t started reading it yet, but when I start I will give some of my impressions.
