Chris is on Infinite Earths, Episode 20: Justice League of America #224 (1984)

July 17, 2019

Hello Conventioneers!  This time out your paragon of curmudgeon-ing Chris (@acecomics) shares his experiences attending and even volunteering at various comic book conventions during his fandom-career.  From humble beginnings rifling through bins at the Sun-Vet Mall, to getting the opportunity to wear a Media badge, interviewing Kurt Busiek and having a picture taken with Dan Jurgens... it's a story of anxiety, agoraphobia, preciosity and heat-exhaustion. 

Also, we take a look at Justice League of America #224 (March, 1984) by the aforementioned Mr. Busiek - With an audio clip of my 2016 interview with him where we discuss this very issue!

July 10, 2019

Greetings Fellow Butterfly-Effect Victims!

Today we're going to take a look at the first-issue of the Universe-Altering DC Comics event, Flashpoint... without too much complaining about what came afterwards!  This book hit the stands on the very day the direction of my own life was unexpectedly and profoundly altered... for the better... and you'll hear probably wayyy too much about that once you hit PLAY!  (Please hit PLAY anyway).

It's a New Day... Yes it is!

Join Chris (@acecomics) for the return of the Chris is on Infinite Earths program when he discusses the book that launched the crossovent that finally made him take notice of DC Comics after an extended bout of unemployment... Brightest Day #0!  He'll also tell you far more than you'd ever care to know about how that bout of unemployment began!  I, er... He apologizes for that ahead of time.

Cosmic Treadmill ep. 141 - William Shatner’s TekWorld #1 (1992)

May 19, 2019

Hello, comics enthusiasts! In this episode, tekheads Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) dive into the world of the future...which would actually be somewhat close to the present, when we read William Shatner's TekWorld #1 by Ron Goulart and Lee Sullivan, published by Marvel Comics, through their Epic imprint, in 1992! After some biographical information about Goulart, Sullivan, and Shatner, the voice androids read every futuristic page of the issue. Then, they talk about what happened with the rest of the TekWar property, including the desktop video game and trading cards that came with it. The episode wraps up with a look at William Shatner's music career, and how he learned to embrace his fans! It's a Shatner-filled episode, you don't wanna miss it!

Thanks to Mark Jager for suggesting the comic book!

Shade and Sweet Water, Everybody! 

This time out Chris (@acecomics) shares his extended comic book "secret origin", which started with a peek at two particular pages of the ElfQuest Gatherum!  This will be an especially "Christory-heavy" installment, with stories of my time with ElfQuest, my first visit to a comic book specialty store and subsequent first trip to the back-issue bins... also: the revelation that trade paperbacks were very expensive!

Had a great time reliving "The memories that made a Fan out of Chris"!  I hope you'll enjoy hearing all about 'em!

May 12, 2019

Hello, Rebel scum! In this episode, Jedi-curious Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) dive back into the world of Star Wars comic books when they read Dark Empire #1 by Tom Veitch and Cam Kennedy, published by Dark Horse Comics in 1991! After the biographical information, our tie-fighter pilots look at the hand-off of licensing from Marvel to Dark Horse, and set the stage for the book to follow. After the issue, our soothsayers tell the rest of the story, and detail all the Star Wars comics ever published by Dark Horse! It's a long list, so may the force...of caffeine be with you!

Reggie’s Comics Stories ep. 15 - The Great Marvel Exodus

Reggie’s Comics Stories ep. 15 - The Great Marvel Exodus

May 8, 2019

Hey folks! In this episode, Reggie (@reggiereggie) looks at an article from Comic Book Artist #7, compiled by Chris Knowles titled "The Great Marvel Exodus." Normally, the number of creators that left in the late 1970s is attributed to Jim Shooter's promotion to Editor-in-Chief, but after reading these recollections by the actual creators in question, we see that things are not so cut-and-dry. It's another unsolicited promotion for TwoMorrows Publishing, so be sure to head over to twomorrows.com and check 'em out!
