We have more Black Mask goodness for ya this week as Joshua Hood joins the podcast!
With volume one of his hit comic We Can Never Go Home wrapping up, Josh is hard at work on the art of volume 2 but took time out of his schedule to chat with the Bleed about comics and more!
For this week's show Josh chose the Boom!Box hit comic, Lumberjanes by Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, Brooke Allen, and Shannon Watters! We read and discuss volume 1 of the series and how friggin' rad this comic is.
Next week is a MY LITTLE PONY extravaganza as we pull double duty with the Frienship is Magic and Friends Forever creative teams, including Christina Rice, Brenda Hickey, Agnes Garbowska, Sara Richard and Katie Cook!
It's another Hang Dai edition of the Bleed!
Prolific cartoonist Dean Haspiel joins the podcast and we discuss his upcoming release, Beef with Tomato! The collection of loosely autobiographical short stories will make it's print debut Sept. 19-20 at SPX in Bethesda, MD, and is available in stores shortly after.
We also discuss his work on the Fox, collaborations with Jonathan Ames, remembering Seth Kushner, and more INCLUDING the Pick of the Week!
And what a pick it is, as this week Dean discusses his idol Jack Kirby! We read one of Kirby's later DC projects, the high-concept action thriller One Man Army Corps aka OMAC!
Next Week: Another one of those hooligans from Black Mask joins the show, artist of We Can Never Go Home Josh Hood! Josh and Joe read and discuss the hit Boom!Box series Lumberjanes!
We're being invaded by Canucks! It's like a Skroce comic or something on this show.
Welcome the wonder Ed Brisson to the podcast; writer, artist, letterer, this guy does it all. He took time out of his busy schedule writing Image Comics The Mantle and Boom! Studios Cluster to come on the show and talk about his craft.
This week, Ed chose to read and discuss the seminal Spidey story Kraven's Last Hunt from Mike Zeck, J.M. DeMatteis, and Marvel comics. Considered by many to be among the greatest Spider-Man stories ever told, Ed explained how this comic continues to influence his sensibilities as a creator nearly 30 years after its original publication.
Next Week: We welcome another Hang Dai mastermind in the form of Dean Haspiel, cartoonist for Red Circle/Archie's The Fox! We're reading Dean's own semi-autobiographical collection Beef with Tomato as well as the eternally weird OMAC by Jack Kirby!
