This week on War Rocket Ajax, we hit a milestone with our very first professional wrestling guest, as Lightning Mike Quackenbush comes on the show to talk about how comics shaped his childhood! It’s a fun time, as he launches right into it with a ton of enthusiasm, and even ends up cutting a promo on the colorist of Marvel Comics Presents.
Incidentally, we figured out after recording why he doesn’t care for Al Milgrom: He’s never read the masterpiece that is U.S.1.
This week on War Rocket Ajax, Matt and I are pleased as punch to welcome old friend Chris Roberson and new pal Rich Ellis to the show to talk about their new book for IDW, Memorial>! Plus, Matt does stand-up and I unveil my latest obsession, which is of course a TV show made for twelve year-olds.
I am nothing if not consistent.
War Rocket Ajax is back for 2012, and to kick things off right, we’ve got the 75th Annual Gordie Awards for the best and worst of 2011, with categories suggested by our listeners! As a result we avoid all that tired “Best Comic” and “Favorite Hero” nonsense and go straight to “Worst Thing Laura Hudson Did To Chris” and “Best Use of a Character You Hate.” It’s a good time.
And — Gasp! What’s this?! Could it be that War Rocket Ajax is back on iTunes at last?! It is! So if you used to subscribe, please re-up and if you feel like it, write us a review.
Also, just so I don’t have to write a whole other post about it, this week’s episode of Japanese Spider-Man is maybe the best Spider-Man story of all time. There is a steel cage deathmatch, you guys. Seriously.
Christmastime is here, and that means it’s time for The War Rocket Ajax Christmas Special! This year, Matt Fraction makes his traditional return to the show along with Eugene “Adam Warrock” Ahn, as we offer up track-by-track annotations for the Psychopathic Records Christmas album, Holiday Heat.
It is a magical time of presents, festivity and utter, soul-crushing horror at what we’re doing, all for you. Merry Christmas, my ninjas.
This week on War Rocket Ajax, it’s our monthly roundtable, with Action Age’s own Chad Bowers and Josh Krach! We go through the month’s big stories in comics, and by that I mean that we talk about the Creeper and Wild Dog and then figure out what would be the best selling comic of all time. Hint: It’s in the episode title.
In this week’s War Rocket Ajax, we talk to Ming Doyle about The Loneliest Astronauts and Fantastic Four! Plus, we cast out the devil, shout out some newlyweds, and bring you the best worst name for a restaurant in history. BELIEVE!
This week on War Rocket Ajax, it’s the WRA Halloween Special with our pal, Benito Cereno! We meant to talk about comics, but instead we settle for each giving our five essential Halloween horror movies, so if you want some last minute cinematic treats, start listening…. now.
Plus, the usual shenanigans! Enjoy, and Happy Halloween!
