Episodes

The Best Comics of 2016  

The title says it all: these are the best comics of 2016, courtesy of Matt Seneca, Chris Mautner and Joe McCulloch. Tucker is here too, but he refused to do a best of thing. 

Well, not completely.

Hey kid. You like comics? Then check out this comic called "White Boy"  

Hey there pardners. Saddle up and join us at the saloon for a rootin, tootin’ … OK, enough of that. In this episode Joe McCulloch, Matt Seneca and Chris Mautner are talking about Western comics, with a lengthy discussion of Garrett Price’s White Boy. Yee-haw. Or some such exclamation.

 

Cartoon Arts Brooklyn, the Joe McCulloch Way  

Every year, a festival takes place in Brooklyn, and every year, Joe comes out to visit Tucker and go through his rituals. This time around, Joe and Tucker are joined by Tim Hodler to recap:

CAB NINTENDO OPERA MANGA TRANSIT COMICS
The Road Dogs of CXC  

Chris and Joe went to second annual CXC festival in Columbus, Ohio, and decided to record a podcast about their trip on the car ride home. That’s a great idea, right? In between they talk about Winsor McCay, Charles Burns, Garry Trudeau and just how cool that Billy Ireland museum is (it’s pretty cool).

It's Time For the New York Review of...Comics?  

There’s a new comics publisher in town (any town, just pick one), New York Review of Comics. In this episode, Joe McCulloch and Chris Mautner examine two of their latest offerings, Peplum by Blutch and a new edition of Pushwagner’s Soft City. Merriment is had Fun fact: I hate writing blurbs.

Jeb Is A MESS  

On this episode, Chris, Tucker and Joe talk about what might be the worst Garth Ennis comic ever made, one that is fine, and the history of Queen Emeraldas. Get in where you fit in, young demon!

The Neon Demon  

Matt Seneca and Joe McCulloch couldn't find any comics, so they went to the movies! What movie, you ask? Why THE NEON DEMON of course!

Joe and Matt get all Hensley'd About It  

On this episode of Comic Books Are Burning In Hell, Joe McCulloch and Matt Seneca get together to talk about Tim Hensley's 2016 comic Sir Alfred, the final publication of Alvin Buenaventura's Pigeon Press. NOTE: difficulties with recording make this episode hard to hear at times, and for that we apologize. 

Tcaf! Old avatar comics! Junji Ito! The most typical-us episode yet!  

COMMUNITY. That's our message this week. MATT SENECA visits TCAF and reports on the scene.  JOE MCCULLOCH buys a stack of 1997 Avatar Press comics and gazes across the tides of history. CHRIS MAUTNER reads a Junji Ito's Fragments of Horror and ponders the nature of art and authorship. COMMUNITY. I don't need to explain this metaphor. TOGETHER WE CANNOT BE BROKEN.  Please consult the comments for factual corrections. 

All We Need Is Just A Little Daniel Clowes  

On this episode, Joe, Tucker, Matt and Chris debate the latest graphic novel from Daniel Clowes, Patience. Recently published by Fantagraphics, it's a pretty big deal.

Barry Windsor Smith and Egon Schiele  
On this episode, Tucker, Sean, Matt and Joe take on the Seneca Challenge: Barry Windsor Smith, Roy Thomas and Conan! Subjects include: Conan: Red Nails Egon Schiele Miracleman: The Golden Age Mercury Rising, Kiefer Sutherland's career and Mark Hamill's choices

 

Ex-Eros? He Can Draw Those Tentacles!  

On this episode of the podcast, Matt, Joe and Tucker sit down to talk about the following topics!

Super Hero Movies and the collapse of culture Mark Millar, the last traditionalist
New Comics? What are those?  

New Comics? You know who cares about new comics? Losers, that’s who. Which is why this week Matt, Joe and Chris pulled some old comics out of their longboxes to talk about — old, obscure comics you probably haven’t heard of before. ‘Cause you’re so uncool.

I wish i was dead all the time
