Adrian Tomine - Season 3, Episode 9

cover art by Adrian Tomine

We can't think of a better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than with a lively conversation about love, marriage, parenthood and of course comics with the one and only Adrian Tomine. We discuss his latest book, "Scenes From an Impending Marriage", which humorously documents the dramas and DJs that he and his wife encountered on their way to the altar. Also of course we talk with Josh Frankel, our resident New Comics wizard about new and upcoming comics, as well as his magic-game addiction. So break out the heart-shaped candy and listen in! Love is definitely in the air!

Tom Kaczynski - Season 3, Episode 8

a panel from Trans Utopia by Tom Kaczynski

In this episode we talk to one of the smartest men in comics, Tom Kaczynski who just came out with a new mini-comic, Trans Utopia. We talk about his comics-making process, as well as his newly-formed comics publishing company Uncivilized Books which has produced books by Gabrielle Bell, Jon Lewis, and Daniel Thomas Wieken. Also we "try" to talk new comics with Josh, and debate about comics laureates and the fine art of critiquing comics. Have a listen, this one was fun!
