Another member of the RAID Studio graces the Never Sleeps Network Studio in promotion of the group’s RAID.One anthology featuring original work from celebrated artists Francis Manapul, Ramon Perez and this man, Gibson Quarter. Gibson’s name may not be as familiar yet in North America because a lot of his work is published in Europe. On this episode, Gibson describes how his love for the work of famed Scottish comic artist Frank Quitely lead to him breaking into the European comic market working for Quitely’s first publisher and then later signing comics beside him at the Glasgow Comicon. Though Gibson loves that he’s known in Europe, he reveals that having published work only available across the pond has hurt his career stateside a little bit. Still he perseveres, supplying covers and interiors for some issues of Canadian hero, Auroraman, Frogman #3: The Death of Frogman and working as the co-creator of The Organ Grinder, a character that first appeared in the independent anthology series Undertow published by 7th Wave Comics based in Seattle. This episode sponsored by Hairy Tarantula.
The Jedi Ras is joined by Bachman and The Other Guy to discuss the reveal of the 13th Doctor, Jodie Whitakker, Spider-Man : Homecoming, and all the Star Wars : The Last Jedi and Avengers : Infinity War news to come out of D23.
That title is a mouth-full…..So much so that the thought of writing this review of this weeks episode in the voice of Elmer Fudd is an undertaking that couldn’t be done justice (trust us, we started and deleted multiple times a start to this with his speech mannerisms and its just hard) But besides that, Linz brought her son Conner into the studio talk a bit of comics with Tony.
Tony reviewed Batman/Elmer Fudd #1, which partly explains the title this week. It was one of the best crossovers in the series so far. Even though Tony dislikes Noir, it was so well put together that it felt like a regular day in the life of Batman. Conner reviewed Iron Fist #5. Although he is new to reviewing, we will give it an OK for now. Linz reviewed the long on hiatus of Sabrina #7. The world that has been created, and the art style is so unique that both Linz and Tony wish it would be on a more regular schedule.
Not a whole lot of news this week. Some numbers for Spider-Man opening and also some talk about what is holding up the Spawn movie. The biggest surprise was another Batman animated movie from DC. Tony is so happy he is finally getting an animated movie made. Heavy Sarcasm on that statement.
Booze and a Book was The Wicked + Divine #29 paired with an Alley Cat cocktail.
