War Rocket Ajax #20: Love and Capes With Thom Zahler!



That’s right, folks: After a solid month of snow-induced absence, the World’s Most Destructive Podcast is back with an all-new installment where we sit down with Love and Capes creator Thom Zahler for what was originally supposed to be our Valentine’s Day show! But don’t worry, we don’t let a an extreme delay and a truly amazing amount of technical difficulties stop us, as we chat about wedding specials, character development, and my deep and abiding hatred of Aaron Sorkin!

Plus, the Third Chair is filled by the English Dynamo himself, as Solomon Stone artist Matthew Allen Smith joins us to provide his own unique brand of relentless cheer! We tackle the (literal) heights of my collaborators, debate the merits of Kick Ass, and delve into my difficulties having hot lesbian sex in space.

As mentioned earlier, we had a lot of technical difficulties–I ended up switching microphones like three times and for some reason we could not get a good connection going–but we had a lot of fun, and I’m glad to be back at it. So head over to WarRocketAjax.com to download or stream the new episode,or catch the iTunes feed later tonight!

  1. Been looking forward to this.
    And will wait to see what you have to say about Sorkin before I call you names.


  2. Saw that Beta Ray Bill cover a few weeks ago… it made me cry with it’s sheer beauty. Ol’ Horseface Killa should be in every Marvel comic as far as I am concerned.

  3. I have to disagree with your comments (because that’s what your blog comments section is for) about The Authority being where a switch flicked for Millar and he became more populist and lowbrow and point you to the UKs 2000ad.
    Quirky satirical strips like Robo Hunter and Judge Dredd were reduced to rejected action movie pitches and the “villain built up as the ultimate badass for every episode but the last where he’s defeated by one punch” formula that Millar ‘s now famous for was first trotted out there.
    Imagine a weekly anthology where every strip was Sonic The Comic’s ‘Streets of Rage’ but with a different core premise and you’re not far off what 2000ad became when Millar was writing a sizeable chunk of it – a period also known for its exodus of readers.
