War Rocket Ajax #27: Brother Got Ta Rap With Ryan Dunlavey!

 

 

War Rocket Ajax returns to action with the first of five shows where we’ve actually scheduled guests in advance! This wee, Euge and I have a chat with Ryan Dunlavey where we talk about his work on Action Philosophers!, his part in the MODOK Renaissance, and his surprisingly dim views of the heavenly music men call New Jack Swing.

Plus, Euge and I offer up comics reviews, discuss the punishment handed down to our teenage poster artist Max Huffman, and deny big ups to some truly hateful haters.

War Rocket Ajax #26: Eisner Nominated

 

 

This week, Euge and I return to War Rocket Ajax with a rare guest-less episode!

Euge was sick last week and we didn’t have time to wrangle a guest, so we decided to experiment with the format a bit for a shockingly short one-hour episode where we discuss SHIELD, go through a lightning round of Twitter Questions, and–of course–make several hundred mentions of ComicsAlliance’s Eisner Nomination! Plus, my happy occasion is sullied by what may in fact be the dumbest hater we have ever had.

So head over to WarRocketAjax.com now to download or stream the episode, or catch the iTunes feed when it updates later tonight! And if you’ve got an opinion on show length, possible guests, or pretty much anything else, leave us a comment at the site!

War Rocket Ajax #25: Kieron Gillen!

 

 

This week, it’s the big two-hour 25th episode of War Rocket Ajax, and we were more than happy to get writer Kieron Gillen on the show for an interview!

I’m a huge fan of Gillen’s, both for his work on Phonogram and his highly underrated Marvel stuff, and it was a thrill to listen to him talk about his history in games journalism, the lost second arc of S.W.O.R.D., and “very subtle things involving the semiotics of clothes.”

And in the rest of the show, the Ajax crew discusses Death and the Immortals (which, shockingly enough, is not a new series from Avatar), recaps the theory of plate tectonics, offers up a review of Blackest Night, and give a truly staggering amount of big ups.

And hey, if you’re not already a listener, you’re really going to want to check out this week’s episode of the Awesomed By Comics podcast! They always do a great show, but I’m pretty sure this week’s is going to be one War Rocket Ajax listeners don’t want to miss!

War Rocket Ajax #24: The Worst Episode Ever With Curt Franklin and Chris Haley

 

 

This week on War Rocket Ajax, Euge and I spend the entire show with our pals Curt Franklin and Chris Haley (the creators behind Let’s Be Friends Again, and the end result has pretty much assured that we’ll never do that again. Join us as we discuss the intricacies of All-Star Superman, which Van Halen album reigns supreme, and the many surprising uses of a bag of salt.

Plus, we’ve got a roundtable review of Nemesis #1, and for the first time ever, Euge takes the spotlight in this week’s installment of Big Ups To All My Haters! And could this episode feature the show’s first-ever lifetime ban? (Yes)

War Rocket Ajax #23: Ajax the Unfathomable with Tom Fowler!

 

 

We’re back with another super-sized episode of War Rocket Ajax, as Euge and I sit down with artist Tom Fowler to find out what happens when a former contributing editor to Cracked squares off against a guy who works for MAD. Not surprisingly, what happens is a really fun conversation, as we discuss the incredible Mysterius the Unfathomable, the most professional company in the business, and the terrifying secrets of Los Luchadores Magnificos.

Plus, Euge and I are joined in the third chair by Action Age co-founder, Monster Plus creator and Awesome Hospital co-writer Chad Bowers, who sits in the third chair to reveal the comics that scare him, his thoughts on Siege, and–yes, really–a discussion of my mother. Plus, we’ve got a Twilighty installment of Big Ups to All My Haters, and yet another week where we run out of time for hater stories. Sorry, guys.

War Rocket Ajax #22: The Edit-Free Bronus Round!

 

 

This week on War Rocket Ajax, we reaffirm our position as the World’s Most Destructive Comics and Pop Culture Podcast by doing a two-hour, edit-free, live-to-tape episode where we answer your listener questions! Of course, it wouldn’t be a Bronus Round without Bros, so Euge and I are joined once again by our pals Matt Wilson and Rusty Shackles, and–this is the key point here–we’re all drinking.

Plus, Michael “Llakor” Ryan, commissioner of Inter-Species Wrestling, joins us as the winner of our Hater Stories contest to tell us a harrowing and hilarious tale of being hated on! So head over to the site to stream it now, or catch the iTunes feed when it updates later tonight!

War Rocket Ajax #21: Megashark and Octopus with Grek Pak and Fred Van Lente!

 

 

War Rocket Ajax is back with an all-new two-hour episode, as Euge and I sit down for a two-on-two tag-team interview with Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente! It’s a long one, but believe me, once you hear those guys start talking about their work on Planet Hulk, Wolverine First Class, Incredible Hercules, improv comedy, sound effects, and Bill Mantlo, you’ll be glad we left it all in. And that’s before you get Fred Van Lente’s singing voice.

Also, Euge and I discuss the trials and tribulations of a Costco membership, review Black Dynamite, Wolverine: Weapon X, and Girl Comics, debate which movies should and shouldn’t get remakes, and offer a special salute to this week’s Hater. Plus, we reveal the winner of our Hater Contest, and while we don’t mention it on the show, we also welcome former guest and wunderkind cartoonist Max Huffman on board as our new regular show artist!
