Speech Bubble: Daniel Brodie A backpacking trip through Amsterdam had Daniel Brodie wondering if he was really in control of his body and that led to Morgan’s Organs – his comic that takes a look at the various characters controlling the organs of a college student named Morgan. Touted as Pixar’s Inside Out for grown ups, Morgan’s Organs was meant to be an animated TV show, but is now a comic funding its second issue through Kickstarter as of this recording’s release. Brodie talks about the projects transformation and the deeper meanings that underlie its sophomoric humour.

Tony’s back! You get to hear all about his trip to Florida! All. About. It.
Linz reviewed Paper Girls #11. This issue was a transitory issue, setting up the girls adventure in another place?…time?…dimension? It is unclear to the reader and the characters of the story actually where and when they are right now, but they are definitely not in Kansas anymore (that’s a movie reference for your ass, this story does not actually take place in Kansas). This series, written by Brian K. Vaughn and drawn by Cliff Chiang, comes highly recommended by Linz. Her review does not do it justice, go out and buy them all! Right now! We’ll wait.
OK, assuming you just got back from the comic book store, you can rejoin our conversation, which covers topics such as the new Legion show, super hero origin stories, the Power Ranger suits for the movie, and Kevin Smith.

The co-creators and co-writers behind Songs for the Dead – a new indie comic about a young female necromancer who goes on an adventure to rescue a boy from her village – stop by to relay what it was like making and publishing their first real comic book.
Linz, Tony, and Josh gathered this week to talk about all things current and nerdy. Well, mostly. Turns out Josh is about a year late on a theory that widely circulated the internet about year ago. Still made for an interesting discussion though.
After trying to figure out what version of reality they were currently in, things moved to Tony’s most favorite topic: Power Rangers. Seriously, we should probably think about changing the name of this podcast to Drunk on Power Rangers. What started out as a review about issue 11 of the Power Rangers comic from BOOM! Studios quickly turned in to a history lesson about the Power Rangers and then a full on geek out from Tony and Josh, while Linz just sat back and watched the weirdness. Of course, the new Power Rangers movie trailer came out, so that became part of the discussion as well.
This week your hosts remembered they were a comic book podcast and reviewed some books! Along with Power Rangers #11, Tony also reviews WWE #1. Not having watched wrestling when this storyline took place, he is interested in where this story is going and is appreciative of the “backstage look” this comic offers. Both the writing and the art are on point. Later in the podcast, Linz reviews Curse Words #1 written by Charles Soule and drawn by Ryan Browne. The is a fun book full of wizards and magic, but with a great twist that can only be brought to you by the duo working on this book.
Other topics brought up during this episode are the rumors behind the casting of Cable in the next Deadpool movie and the possibility of Hellboy 3. They also covered the newest Logan trailer.

Independent comic book artist Shane Heron (Black Hole Hunters Club, Monstrosity) always had a huge talent for drawing, but didn’t actually make his first comic until his mid-twenties. Despite the relatively late start, he made up for it with gusto, collaborating with past Speech Bubble guest Ricky Lima on a 24-hour comic that would eventually become the alien bounty hunters adventure Black Hole Hunters Club (https://www.facebook.com/BlackHoleHuntersClub/). He even created a comic with the host of this very podcast. Now he’s working on a new book of his own called Morris – a post-apocalyptic western featuring a sheriff with more than a passing resemblance to actor Wilford Brimley.
