Jace welcomes up and coming writer Morgan Hampton to the show to talk about his series Sons of Start Trek. So much of the recent story telling in the IDW Star Trek universe has dealt with legacy, family and fathers & sons, it's great to hear Morgan's take on his approach to this story. We also find out how Morgan found his own way to Star Trek through his own father. Plus, the remarkable similarities between Morgan and Jake Sisko. Listen in for all this and more.

Jace and Rocky chat about the DC titles for the week of June 25, 2024. We have the penultimate issue of Penguin where he seemingly loses everything but is it all a clever ruse? The last two chapters of the Brainiac event are hugely satisfying. A lot of books this week tie into Absolute Power which quicks off with a "Ground Zero" issue that sets the stage for the first issue of the event next week. Listen in for details on all these books and more!

Jace welcomes Mark Waid to the show to chat about all things Absolute Power. Mark gives his thoughts on the event as a classic big comic versus a villain spotlight as well as his thoughts on Amanda Waller as a villain. Mark also gives some insights on how the Absolute Power events we've seen so far tie together. What the consequences of this event might be is also hinted at and it seems that the end of the year for DC may be quite intriguing. Mark finishes up by giving his thoughts on working with the various other writers and artists on this event and how what they have brought to this story. There's tons of insight into the event here and enough hints to excite us even more for what's to come in the Absolute Power event.

RISE follows Jonathan A. Prufrock as he comes face to face with the perils of the male ego while attempting to be super. The first two issues of this premium print comic combine for a whopping 74+ pages and explores one male's ego through the elevated life of a superhero attempting to navigate the pressures of what it really means to be a good man.

 

This superheroic journey is penned by rising writer, Trevor Fernandes-Lenkiewicz (AREA 51: THE HELIX PROJECT, MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT); drawn by the hidden gem, Ryan Best (BEAR MARKET BUSINESSMAN), and gorgeously colored by the one and only, Fabi Marques (BATMAN: THE WORLD, POWER RANGERS, BARBARIC) with letters by the nicest man in comics, Matías Zanetti! This is Trevor & Pocket Watch Press' NINTH project on Kickstarter, having successfully funded & fulfilled all prior campaigns!

Jace chats with writer Dan Watters about Destro #1 from Skybound's Energon Universe. Teaming up with artist Andrei Bressan, Dan gives this debut tons of action while staying true to the character of Destro. Dan talks about leaning into the classic characterization of Destro and how easy the story flowed from start to finish. Plus he gives us some ideas of which Joe's head like to write. Check out the Skybound solicitation for this fast-paced first issue and be sure to pick up your copy

 

THE NEXT CHAPTER OF THE COBRA THREAT BEGINS HERE.
James McCullen Destro XXIV is the man behind M.A.R.S. Industries, the undisputed leader in providing high-tech weapons to world powers-for the right price.
But the emergence of Energon has changed everything.
As Destro's ambitions grow, the "Crimson Twins" Tomax and Xamot Paoli emerge to destroy their competition, and Cobra Commander realizes his current ally could be his future greatest enemy.
Acclaimed writer DAN WATTERS (UNIVERSAL MONSTERS: CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON LIVES!, Loki) and artist ANDREI BRESSAN (DARK RIDE, BIRTHRIGHT) change the balance of power in the Energon Universe forever.

Jace and Rocky chat about the DC Comics for the week of June 18, 2024. Nightwing continues its final arc with the current creative team as Dick Grayson finds himself on the wrong side of the law. Jimmy OIsen may not be the best choice to save the world but you work with what you have in World's Finest and we get some fallout from Zur En-Arrh's action in Batman #149. We also have another possible explanation for the cause of Selina Kyle's nine lives that is more scientific than spiritual. The link between Wonder Woman and Cheetah is explored in Wonder Woman #10, though maybe not as deeply as it could or should be and Constantine gets very meta in his search for the sand of Morpheeus. Get the details about all of these in more in this week's episode.

Jace is joined by Skybound Editor Alex Antone to talk about the record-setting campaign for the G.I. Joe Compendium. A massive collection of four volumes collecting all the original G.I. Joe material produced by Marvel. With a campaign that has broken records on Kickstarter, it is clear that the fandom for G.I. Joe is as big as ever and you this definitive collection for this era of G.I. Joe has more value than anything that has come before or is likely to be seen again. Listen in to hear how the project came together with a peek behind the curtain and be sure to check out the campaign yourself so you don't miss out!

Jace and Rocky chat about the DC Comic titles for the week of June 4, 2024. There is a huge fundamental change for Billy Batson and Shazam, while the Birds of Prey continue to hop around from one plane of existence to the next having no idea where they will end up after each jump. The My Adventures With Superman title is the equivalent of the Christmas Episode for fans of the show and should not be missed, while Zod confronts a surprise character who may be friend or foe. Finally we get the end of the Batman/Failsafe/Zur En Arrh story and the consequences for the Bat-Family remain to be seen.
