Gabriel Hardman reads HELLBLAZER #27

Chase and Joe are back for a new round of reviews, interviews, bickering, and general nonsense. This week's guest on RCBC is the insanely talented storyteller and artist Gabriel Hardman who is publishing a new one-shot at Image Comics in February called The Belfry

Gabriel is renowned both as a comics storyteller and Hollywood storyboard artist. In addition to the horrifying The Belfry, he is currently creating Invisible Republic with his wife Corrina Bechko. In movies he has worked on films like Interstellar, The Dark KnightInception, and most recently Logan. It's an impressive resume and he offers plenty of great insight in this interview. 

He chose to discuss Hellblazer #27, another standalone horror story created by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean. It's a chilling ghost tale titled "Hold Me" that examines the nature of human connection and warmth. We were both blown away by this gem of a comic and hope listeners seek it out after listening to our discussion with Gabriel.

We also cover two new comics in our review segment.

Finally, in The Comics Canon, we take on whether a certain comic deserves to be considered a classic of the medium. This isn’t for obvious cases like Watchmen or Maus. It’s defined for well-loved or forgotten comics that might need to be reassessed. This week we tackle I Kill Giants created by Joe Kelly and J.M. Ken Niimura.

We hope you enjoy the continuation of our newest reboot on the Comic Book Reboot Podcast, long may it last.
