Double Page Spread

One of the most innovative uses of licensed characters in comics has to go to Tom Scioli and John Barber's "Transformers vs. GI Joe", now available in a hardcover "Quintessential Collection" from IDW. Scioli joins Wendi on this episode to discuss the life lessons of Jack Kirby, the larger spiritual implications of the Autobots, the mixture of media he uses, indie artists getting mainstream properties, and the complexities of letting so many characters take the lead in a massive story.

Prepare for a silly and NSFW episode as Wendi chats with very dear friend and return guest, writer Andrew Shaw. In addition to dirty sounding perfume descriptions, the inappropriateness of a horse at comic convention, talk of Michael Rooker, wrestler Joey Ryan, 70s porn and how Wendi almost got fired over suspicious banana behavior, they get down to the serious business of Andrew's new book "Cul De Sac". Billed as "An Australian Horror Story" it combines the exceptional painting of Will Pleydon against a backdrop of the idyllic 50s in an unsettling anthology. If you're a fan of the bawdy "No Apologies" crossover episodes, this is a must listen.
