Teenage Wasteland Episode 61 – Avatar, IDW and All That I am Missing

This week is a special week as I am joined by listener and friend Jeff Sandquist. Jeff usually writes an e-mail to share his thoughts, but this week I thought I would give him the option of the microphone. What is discussed? Everything Jeff is reading: books from IDW, Avatar and other assorted publishers. Plus, a little conversation on Jeff’s career as a comic book fan, and a quick tangent on the Avatar movie.

Check it out; Jeff is a voice to like.

Comic Book Noise 130: Black Summer 0 And 1 With Brian And Damian

Did anybody else read this miniseries from Avatar Press? I did and I talk about it on the latest episode of Comic Book Noise with Brian Matus and Damian Smith from the Kryptographik podcast. At least we tried to talk about the series. After 90 minutes we only covered the first two issues. But in the meantime, we touched upon politics, the legalization of narcotics and the correlation with raising children, the mechanics of language, global economies, religious imagery in scenes of mayhem and of course puppies and children.

Actually the part about puppies and children was left on the cutting room floor but the rest is there.
