CM Podcast 207 – Invasion from Planet Wrestletopia

Interesting story on the new comic we are reviewing in this week’s podcast. I received a tweet from a website called Suspicious Behavior Productions (direct link here: http://suspiciousbehaviorproductions.com/) asking if we would like to review a couple of issues of their digital comics, Invasion from Planet Wrestletopia.

At first, I thought it was a web scam with a name like Suspicious Behavior Productions but it turns out that they are a legitimate indy comic company and not a late 80’s R&B band. I agreed to have them send us a couple of copies of their comic and I was pleasantly surprised.

The comic is written by Ed Kuehnel & Matt Entin, the art is done by Dan Schkade with coloring by Marrissa Louise. All parties involved are very talented.

Premise: A popular wrestler, Rory “Rock & Roll” Landel in 1999 is told by the America Wrestling Federation (AWF) Promoter, Dick Drasin that he will be losing his title to new comer, Bob “Boy Scout” Schultz. Rory is not down for this so he decides to quit in style by cutting one of the greast promos of all time where he declares himself not only World Champ but The Galaxy Champion.

This promo gets beamed out to the stars until it reaches the attention of Planet Wrestletopia’s Ruler and current reigning Galaxy Champion, Manifest Destiny!

Manifest Destiny is dismayed that an Usurper would try to lay a claim to his title so he travels to Earth to challenge the fake Galaxy Champion, Rory Landel to a one-on-one planet cage match. WINNER TAKE ALL!!

Jon and I thought this comic was fantastic and we urge you to give it a try. We are not getting any kickbacks from SBP on this comic. We think it is a really good book that everyone should be checking out. Listen to the podcast for more details on why we think it is so great. We kept the conversation mostly spoiler free.

CM Podcast 197 – Giantkiller with Dan Brereton

Normally on Comics Misremembered, we start the podcast off with a small piece of music and then explain how that clip of music relates to the topic of the podcast.

This week we did not get a chance to go over the music track – which is David Bowie’s Scary Monsters (Super Creeps) because we wanted to devote all our time to out very special guest – Dan Brereton!!

Dan joins the podcast this week because he wants to talk about a very excellent kickstarter project he is promoting: The 20th anniversary collection of his Giantkiller comic.

You can see the kickstarter here:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nocturnals/dan-breretons-giantkiller-monster-edition-hardcove?ref=nav_search&result=project&term=dan%20brereton

Dan goes over why he is choosing to work with Kickstarter.com for this and many future projects. We also go over the history of Giantkiller – it started as a DC comic. DC offer to put his main protagonist, Jack in some of the other DC comics like JLA and Dan said “No”. Why you ask? Well, he tells all in the podcast.

We go on to talk about the future of his Giantkiller characters and I even pitch him an “original” idea for a future story.

It was a great time and we look forward to talking with Dan on his future projects.
