Time Share is a time travel story paying homage to ’80s time travel movies, and Travis seems to be facing some time paradoxes of his own!
Travis belatedly reviews the latest issue of Mega Princess, number 3, and also includes the sweet animated trailed that Brianne Drouhard did for the book!
Travis talks about his first time at a comic shop, and also includes an update about the other comics featured in that DC TV ad from last time, thanks to you the reader!
Travis talks about when Marvel and DC advertised their comics on TV by giving local comic shops a piece of video to work from and add their own info!
As it’s the start of a brand new year, and as is traditional on the House to Astonish podcast, we’re running through the comics of 2016 and handing out our annual gongs. This episode features the results of the Homies awards, with Paul’s picks, my picks, and the winners of the listener vote. We’re taking a look back at new series, old stalwarts, our favourite writers, artists and colourists, and the moments in comics that made us sit up and take notice this year. We’ve got unexpectedly good books, predictably good creators, astonishingly close votes, and shambolically tabulated results. Come hear what we enjoyed this year, and what the voting Housemates plumped for. All this plus a wooden piece of wood, a beautiful leather briefcase, and a perfunctory log fire.
Travis celebrates a notable comic book hoarder anniversary as he explains how he became a full time comic book geek 25 years ago today.
The usual AJS lineup shifted a bit this week, because Travis still wasn’t done with his look at our pal Nick Marino’s new comic Cougar and Cub. It worked out, though, because issue 1 is out next Wednesday!
