This week on Podcorn Podcast, hit We Can Never Go Home writer Matt Rosenberg joins us on the air to celebrate the release of several of his newest works! Today, Civil War II: Kingpin, which features Rosenberg on script and Wolf artist Ricardo Lopez Ortiz, hits the shelves. We get the lowdown on what’s what with Hell’s Kitchen’s true defender. Where does he eat? How much fan service is too much? (Answer: there is no such thing as too much fan service).
In addition, we dive into 4 Kids Walk Into a Bank, Rosenberg’s and artist Matt Boss’ hilarious and terrifying drama about a group of suburban teens who find themselves embroiled in a plot to rob a bank! We examine the contradiction that is Berger and get a look at where things are headed. What did Duncan and Paige talk about in jail in issue 2? Tune in and find out!
Don’t forget to check out Matt’s crazy national signing tour! Will he be stopping near you? Check out a list of the New York stops below and listen in for some details about the West Coast.
Every Wednesday, I talk about comics with Brandon Montclare, writer of the hit Image series Rocket Girl and co-writer of Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur series.
We gab about what we’re reading now, what books we consider classics (Brandon loves Dark Knight Strikes Again…), and the hottest gossip of the industry. Occasionally, the inimitable artist Amy Reeder (Rocket Girl, Batwoman) stops by. Check out our full show archive at podcornpodcast.com.
Intro/Outro music this week is Call Me by Blondie, off the American Gigolo soundtrack.
