Talksplode #74 - Kieron Gillen  

Thanks to iFanboy patrons, it's Talksplode time. A name familiar to iFanboy listeners is Kieron Gillen. We've been longtime fans of Kieron's going back to Phonogram. With the news that he'd be taking over the main Star Wars book this October broke, we figured it would be a good time catch up with Kieron, talk Star Wars and creating a popular new character in a legendary universe of characters and success at the creator owned level with The Wicked + The Divine. But to start things off, we get nerdy and talk about painting little miniature WarHammer statues. Total Running Time: 00:56:35 Music: “It Hurts To See You Dance So Well” The Pipettes

Pick of the Week #589 – Dark Days: The Forge #1  

This week Ron Richards and Conor Kilpatrick talk about the week that was in comic books while facing their greatest enemy. Not the absence of Josh Flanagan. Not failing old man memories. And not creeping summer heat. No this week their great enemy was a dodgy internet connection and thus, less than optimal sound quality. We apologize.
