Nick Marino of Holy F*cked reads Nothing!

It's the holidays! We hate the holidays! Why? Because who wants to spend family time when there's fantasy football playoffs and Star Wars movies and Black Friday sales and opiate dependencies and SO MUCH MORE.

After a slight delay, the Reboot Comic Book Club is back and we're checking in with friend Nick Marino, writer of Action Lab/Danger Zone's books Holy Fuck and Holy Fucked with artist Daniel Arruda Massa.

Normally we have a book to talk about but Nick and I were just so damn excited to get the opportunity to chat, we didn't even NEED a pick of the week. Instead you can hear us rant about Secret Wars, Bendis-isms, hate-reading comics, and much more jaded comic-book-guy-isms!

Next week, Sina Grace returns to the podcast to discuss his autobiographical OGN, Self-Obsessed, a shared obsession with Jenny Lewis and Rilo Kiley, and Ken Niimura's English-translation of Henshin!

@woeisjoe @NickMarino

Intro: "Be" by Common
Outro: "The Laws Have Changed" by the New Pornographers

Presented by Comics Bulletin

Editor's Note: This episode was recorded a few weeks ago and was delayed in posting. Holy F*cked #3 was released last week, so go get it now!

Ann Uland, Emily Willis, and Cat Batka read KAPTARA v1

Sometimes, Space gonna Space. S'what Space does. But c'mon, Space, why you gotta be like that?

We ask the hard questions around here and to dig deep we require some help. This week the Reboot Comic Book Club welcomes Ann Uland, Emily Willis, and Cat Batka of the creator-owned gender bending retelling of Julius Ceaser's story Cassius!

The group also discusses their other projects, including the status of Willis and Uland's ongoing mystery (and erotic!) webcomic Grave Impressions!

And to get to the heart of our opening question, we discuss Chip Zdarsky and Kagan McLeod's space odyssey Kaptara. The hit Image Comic deals with wayward explorers surviving an exotic-yet-hostile alien landscape, capturing the same spirit in stories such as Flash Gordon and John Carter. 

Next week, Sina Grace returns to the podcast to discuss his autobiographical OGN, Self-Obsessed, a shared obsession with Jenny Lewis and Rilo Kiley, and Ken Niimura's English-translation of Henshin!

Next week will see Nick Marino join the show to talk comics! and after a scheduling mishap, the Sina Grace/Henshin episode will go up next week!

Intro: "aNYway" by Duck Sauce
Outro: "Carrion" by Fiona Apple

Presented by Comics Bulletin

Because Ethics in Comics Journalism: Full Disclosure, Joe and Ann met at the CBLDF party at SDCC '15 in July. Now, they're friends. Joe commissioned Ann to create a 10 page mini-comic that was completed in September. If you're so inclined, you'll be able to find it and read it for free. Use your Google skills.

James Asmus reads WE CAN NEVER GO HOME v1

Old friend James Asmus returns to the show! And he has a bone to pick with Crackle's on-demand video service! So if you're the Director of Content of Crackle, maybe skip this episode because James is on a warpath!

Outside of Crackle's improving offerings we also discuss his continued work in the Valiant universe, returning to Marvel with a flagship series, creator-owned work, subtweeting insults, and much more!

Plus, hear us discuss the hit Black Mask Studios book (from former guest, artist Josh HoodWe Can Never Go Home! The book, co-written by Asmus' friend Matt Rosenberg and Patrick Kindlon

Next week, Ann Uland, Emily Willis, and Cat Batka join the show to discuss Kaptara!
