Flashback: There Goes The Couch

No new cast this week because I just moved to a new apartment and I don't have internet. So here is a throwback from our vault that a lot of you probably know about through references or talk on the show but this is the original story of Brent and his couch. Enjoy, Issue #37 There Goes The Couch.

This week we discuss how to ruin a couch, creepy roommates, the new watchmen and learn that strong relationships are built on honesty... and embarassment. We also found out that we are very bad at taking 'breaks' during the cast and just talked straight through them...

Original Air Date: Fri, 3 Feb 2012

Pages and Panels #6: Johnnie Christmas and Sheltered #7

sheltered

On this episode of Pages and Panels I am joined by the insanely talented artist Johnnie Christmas. Johnny came on to break down issue seven of his Image comic book, Sheltered. Sheltered is written by Ed Brisson, drawn by Johnnie and colored by Shari Chankhamma. Sheltered is the story of a group of kids who are raised in a preppers community called Safe Haven. When some of the children learn of the possibility a super volcano is about to go off they enact their plan to kill all the adults to better survive the coming storm. Sheltered is all about the characters, their interactions and motivations. Johnnie is a master of conveying both intense emotional distress on one page and brutal violence and action on the next. Johnnie breaks down issue seven in the series providing insight into pacing conversations through art, creating mood, and drawing those pesky children. Thanks so much to Johnny for taking the time to talk to us and provide really great insight into his profession. Be sure to pick up the second volume of Sheltered that collects issues 6-10 dropping July 30th which will catch you up in time for issue 11 on August 20th. In the links below I have included Johnnie's issue of Murderbook as well. Follow me on twitter @kyleoverkill for requests or suggestions for that show. Thanks and enjoy!

On this episode of Pages and Panels I am joined by our first writer and artist duo with Ryan Burton and John Bivens. Ryan and John are the creative juggernauts behind the Image comic Dark Engine which hit stores July 16th. Ryan's cryptic yet ominous writing mixed with Johns kinetic and brutal art gave readers an amazing first issue in what seems like it's going to be a great dark fantasy adventure. Ryan and John provide ample vision into their debut issue of Dark Engine. Ryan and John talk about weighting exposition, how best to murder dinosaurs, buttered coffee, and the Ghostbusters debate rages on. Thanks so much to Ryan and John for coming on and breaking down an amazing issue of Dark Engine. Please go pick up the first issue at your local shop or on comixology here and make sure to ask your shop to order issue 2 out August 20th while you are there.
