As promised, the guys dive into March's DC Universe / Hanna-Barbera crossovers to see what was great, and maybe some of the stuff that wasn't so much. We also review the one DC / Looney Toons crossover that we didn't get to earlier, and that's Lobo/Road Runner. Trust us when we say you don't want to miss our review of this book (hint: the Main Man is back in style with this book!)

Graphic Content Podcast 26 | The Eisner and Inkpot Awards

August 3, 2017

In this episode of the Graphic Content Podcast, Jim and Adam talk about (almost) all of the nominees and winners of this year's Eisner Awards! We also shine a spotlight on the winners of the career achievement-recognizing Inkpot Awards as well! We were originally going to pair this with a lot of the news about Movies and TV from SDCC, but we thought better than to give you a 3+ hour long episode. That is something that we'll hold over for episode 27.

In the meantime, if you'd like to connect with us to get in on the conversation on comics and the comic book industry, we'd love to hear from you!

Graphic Content Flashback | While we create new content…

July 27, 2017

Due to a series of unfortunate events that took place today, we're not able to post the new episode we promised reviewing the nominees and winners of this past weekend's Eisner Awards. While we retool this weekend, we're posting this look-back at "Volume 1" of this show back in 2014 as the guys review that week's comics. We hope you enjoy the look back, as we're looking forward to bringing you more of the content that has you listening to our show. We appreciate your patience, and WILL have new content to post by the end of this weekend!

Today on the show, Adam is back to join Jim in talking about the highs and lows of DC Comics' recently-completed crossover specials with the Looney Toons characters. The highs were most-definitely Eisner Award-worth, and the lows... well, let's just say it's Adam's turn to blow a gasket on this episode. We hope you like it.

Graphic Content Podcast 23 | Spider-Man Homecoming Review!

July 11, 2017

Jim is joined by special guest reviewer Chris Wiler in reviewing the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Spider-Man Homecoming! Listen to the guys unpack this co-produced feature between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, and if they thought they did ol' Web-Head any justice. Plus, just like if Adam was on this episode, they go off on plenty of tangents in their conversation we hope you find entertaining...

(One thing Jim wanted to mention -- he doesn't think that Wonder Woman was the best superhero movie of the year, that was a slip of the tongue. Here's his official list for the record: Logan, Wonder Woman... and you can listen to the rest of the podcast to see if he liked Spider-Man Homecoming more or less than Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 :-)

Graphic Content Podcast 22 | Marvel Legacy… seriously?

July 6, 2017

In Episode 22 of the Graphic Content Podcast, Jim and Adam give their opinions on what admittedly little is known about the new "Legacy" event from Marvel coming this fall. Okay, it's actually rampant speculation -- but at least we're following the trail of breadcrumbs the House of the Mouse has given us so far and compared it to what their editorial slant has looked like up until now. Here's a hint: we think Marvel has actually found their way into chasing DC for a change. Listen to the show to discover what has led us to these opinions, as well as us actually stating how wrong we hope we are...

...we also want to know what you want to think! Hit us up on email by addressing your question or comment to thereal.graphiccontent@gmail.com. And we're on all of the socials as well: Twitter @graphicpodcast, on Instagram @graphiccontent.podcast, and our official FB page found on at http://facebook.com/graphicpodcast

Graphic Content Podcast 21 | ID10T Fest!

June 29, 2017

In this episode of the Graphic Content Podcast, Jim talks to Adam about the weekend he spent at the inaugural ID10T Festival presented by Nerdist's Chris Hardwick, A12 Productions, and Live Nation! We try to figure out if it's supposed to be called "Eye-Dee-Ten-Tee Fest" or "Idiot Fest". (Honestly, I'm sure either one works just fine). We talk about what the experience was like at a "transmedia event" like this that featured some of the best in comics, comedy, and music. Seriously-amazing talent from all three sectors were featured that weekend too numerous to count, but you can check out the festival's website out at id10tfest.com for the roll call of all the artists featured there!

So, after Adam and Jim blather on about the festival in general, the really good stuff starts: and that's the interviews Adam had with a variety of comic industry talent! First off is an interview with Mike Marts from Aftershock Comics, whom some long-time comics readers might know as a 20-year veteran of the "Big Two" comics publishers editing the Batman titles at DC before moving down the street to Marvel to take over the editorial reigns of the X-Men titles during the time Ed Brubaker was writing those books. Adam also talks with Matt Wilson (colorist on The Wicked + The Divine amongst a long list of other titles), Chris Burnham (an amazing penciller who's drawn mainstream comics like many Batman titles for DC & X-Men: Manifest Destiny for Marvel; to small press/creator-owned work like Nixon's Pals and Officer Downe). On Day 2 Adam spoke with Matt Horak (artist on Marvel's Punisher with Becky Cloonan), and wraps-up his ID10T coverage with a long-ish interview with one of my favorite creators in the comics business, the one and only Phil Hester!

We hope you enjoy the show, and would welcome your feedback. You can send emails to thereal.graphiccontent@gmail.com, and we're all over social media.
