It's our first regular episode on our new home and schedule and we are more than happy to use this occasion to invite our old friend Chase Magnett to discuss some awesome comics once again.
New books like Karnak and Wic+Div are discussed. We talk about ethics, intent, and advertising in comics blogging and journalism. And we hope you like hearing grown men gush about Nicholas Kristoff columns, because dammit that's what you're getting.
We also discuss This Week's Book, Transmetropolitan by Warren Ellis, Darrick Robertson, et al. It's Hunter S. Thompson meets Tom Wolfe meets Nicholas Kristoff meets a metric fuckton of ayahuasca and cocaine. And you're trying to tell me this is '90s Ellis? JFC.
Next week James Asmus returns to the program to discuss We Can Never Go Home from Black Mask Studios! WUB WUB!
Intro: "Drop" by the Pharcyde
Outro: "Death Defying Acts" by Angus & Julia Stone
Presented by Comics Bulletin
What's going on?! Where is the podcast?! What wicked sorcery beguiles thine eyes?
Well, it's a time for change around here. We have to thank everyone over at Bleeding Cool but for now the podcast is rebranding and relocating.
We are ESPECIALLY THANKFUL to Comics Bulletin and Kyle Garret for welcoming the show to their site. Expect to see more of the same wonderful content in the coming weeks!
New episodes EVERY MONDAY! Starting next week, Chase Magnett comes on to discuss Transmetropolitan vol. 1 by Warren Ellis and Darrick Robertson.
Probably should have lead with this, but it's better late than never: Welcome to the Reboot Comic Book Club.
Intro: Interlude (That's Love) by Chance the Rapper
Outro: Get It by Run the Jewels
Can you believe that this is our 51st episode and it's only the second time a creator has been honest about the demonic blood rituals and animal sacrifices required to succeed in this industry?
This truth-bomb comes courtesy of guest Sara Richard who is joined by Katie Cook, continuing our My Little Pony party podcast! Sara is cover artist extraordinaire on the Pony books, as well as others, while Katie was the long-time series writer on Friendship is Magic, as well as cartoonist of her own webcomic Gronk!
The relaunched Archie is on this week's docket, from A-List creators Fiona Staples, Mark Waid, Jen Vaughn, Andre Szymanowicz and Jack Morelli.
Katie and Sara also discuss other projects, the aforementioned animal sacrifices, crazy fans and MUCH MORE! Take a listen!
Tune in next time when Chase Magnett rejoins the occasion for a show so big, we may have an identity crisis...
We're celebrating 50 episodes of the Bleed with a special two-part My Little Pony EXTRAVA-BONANZA-GANZA!
On Part One, we welcome Brenda Hickey, Agnes Garbowska, and Christina Rice to the podcast! Agnes and Brenda are both artists for the My Little Pony comic books including Friendship is Magic and Friends Forever, with Christina contributing scripts for the books as well.
On this week's episode, the group discusses another book from IDW, the relaunched Jem and the Holograms by Kelly Thompson and Sophie Campbell!
The book is a wonderful blend of pop music, vibrant pastels, melodrama, and murder plots! But don't take the text's word for it, GO LISTEN TO THE PODCAST!
Look for Part Two next week, when Sara Richard and Katie Cook stop by to talk the relaunched Archie!
