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!
This week on War Rocket Ajax, Andy Khouri, Caleb Goellner, and whatever chemicals were coursing through Caleb’s bloodstream join us for a New York Comic Con wrap-up! Get the thrilling inside story of cell phone coverage at the Javitz Center and hear Caleb go on and on and on about his truly shameful tastes in music! It’s a memorable one, folks!
This week on War Rocket Ajax, Matt and I are pleased to welcome Wondermark creator David Malki !, who tells us all about repurposing turn-of-the-century art to make comics and his (completely fictional) beef with Ryan North. Also, for the first time in War Rocket Ajax history, someone compares himself to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. And amazingly, it’s not me.
We skipped it last month, but this week, the War Rocket Ajax Roundtable is back, as Laura Hudson and Bethany Fong join us to discuss September’s big events. Plus, we talk about the full-back tattoos we want, and Laura tries to make the case that she is not, as I have often said, a monster who seems to exist solely to torment me.
No matter what evidence she provides, keep in mind: Marmaduke AND Transformers 3.
This week on War Rocket Ajax, Matt and I continue our unofficial War Rocket Ajax Lady Month as we chat with Blair Butler about reviewing comics on TV, her love of MMA, and her upcoming comic, Heart. She’s a lot of fun, and while she did not convince me that there was anything in Mixed Martial Arts that was even half as awesome as the Dusty Rhodes “Hard Times” promo, she did her level best.
Also, I think I forgot to mention last week’s episode here at the ISB, but we talked to Dark Horse Editor Rachel Edidin, one of my favorite people, about editing Dr. McNinja, AxeCop and others. It was such a good time that it inspired me to get a mohawk this weekend.
And yes, we know the iTunes feed isn’t working. Unfortunately, we had to nuke it from orbit last week, but there’s a new one getting set up right now. In the meantime, feel free to stream the episodes from CA, or download them from WarRocketAjax.com, and we’ll let you know when the new feed’s ready to go!
This week on War Rocket Ajax, Matt and I are thrilled to welcome the creator behind one of my favorite webcomics, Chester 5000 XYV‘s Jess Fink! She joins us to talk about what it’s like to create probably the best best piece of romantic Victorian robot erotica on the entire Internet, as well as the methodology of turning oneself into an Angler fish.
Plus, Evie and Aaron stop by as part of their celebration of 150 episodes, and considering the year is 2011, we get a lot of talk about the Spin Doctors in.
Please Note: We’re having some server issues, so the iTunes feed won’t update for at least a couple of days. ‘Til then, feel free to stream it from CA or WarRocketAjax.com, where you can also download the episode if you listen on an iPod or the like. Sorry for the inconvenience, but everything should go much smoother soon.
This week on War Rocket Ajax, Matt and I are pleased as punch to welcome back Chris Roberson, who comes to the show for an open, honest and brutally frank discussion of his time as the writer of Superman, picking up from J. Michael Straczynski to take over “Grounded.”
Chris is always great to have on the show, and this episode is no exception. Plus, the Hundo Club returns with some good times and some incredibly controversial Zelda bashing!
