As it seems that Patrick and Terry are almost the same person, this half of the interview is more about pro wrestling and heavy metal than it is about comics, but it always comes back around to comics. Just like life! When these two get together over a bottle of Jameson (yes, there was Jameson), you never know what’s going to come out.
We’re up for a Time Out Love Chicago Award for best Bucktown shop! Just where is Bucktown, anyway? Do comic books count as “media” for media mail? Hint: They do not. So just how do we mail comics? We hate Marvel Comics’ paper stock for their covers. Lots of damages lately from Diamond Comics, our distributor.
Do we stock the freshest comics?
Dal really wants biscuits. Or pancakes. He’s not greedy; he’ll take either.
Millarworld is Reborn! Haha! That’s a comic pun.
Hollywood celebrities that have written comics.
Marvel’s next Star Wars ongoing stars a completely original character.
After weeks apart, Dal returns to Contest of Challengers and it’s like no time has passed at all. New York Comic Con is happening as this episode is recorded, so we talk about new announcements such as Batwoman, Justice League America and Supersons, Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, Warren Ellis and a TMNT/WWE crossover. Yes, that’s right. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures dressed as WWE wrestlers. We also talk about… A new Ex Libris Challengers bookplate. Dal got a Vision t-shirt. Cave Carson and the feel of DC’s Young Animal line.
It’s an interview with Jill Thompson! The triple-threat of pop culture; comics, wrestling, and __________? Her brand new graphic novel “Wonder Woman The True Amazon” is out now and she’ll be signing it at Challengers on Saturday, October 15th. We talk about how she got into comics as a fan, her love of wrestling, Peanuts, Archie comics and all about Wonder Woman. Bonus: Brian Azzarello is also in this episode at various points, talking about his new Image comic Moonshine (which he’ll be signing at Challengers on Saturday, November 19th), decompressed storytelling and also, professional wrestling. This episode is presented in an entirely different order than it was recorded, just to confuse you.
