I really like this podcast. I get to hear about new comics from interviews with the people who create them. The interviewer is generally good, and we all get to learn the basics of the comic. Sometimes I don't think the interviewer is willing to ask critical questions, but overall I like this podcast a great deal and think it is worth listening to.

Rank #2: iFanboy: Don't Miss #107 - A Once Crowded Sky with Tom King

Podcast cover
Read more
Tom King didn’t write a comic book. He wrote a book. But it’s not a book about comic books. It’s a book that’s about what a lot of comic books are about: superheroes. In that book, he does have comics, drawn by none other than Tom Fowler, one of the resident geniuses in comics.

Before being an author, King held the following positions: intern for Vertigo Comics, assistant to Chris Claremont, CIA counterterrorism officer. Yes, those are all true. And yet now, he’s written the story of a world where the superheroes have all given up their powers, and become less magnificent, and more mundane. Clearly the skies are no longer crowded.

It’s a novel unlike any you’ve ever read before, but it’s not just a comic book story converted to prose. It’s also a much more beautiful package than a lot of novels you’ll see on the shelves.

Walter Simonson is an actual living and working legend in comics, and the good news is that he doesn’t seem like he’s close to done. The man draws and writes this original graphic novel, The Judas Coin, which works a bit like an anthology that spans distant corners of the DC Universe, following the cursed payment for the betrayal of Christ, but also featuring Batman. Simonson is still very much pushing and challenging himself with comics at a point in his career where many would just sit back and put it on cruise control, and it’s incredibly inspiring.
