Robots From Tomorrow episode 103: Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca’s Street Angel


The publisher of this week’s book, Adhouse, suggests that book, Street Angel, be filed under these categories: comedy, poverty, hero, and kung fu. Those terms both entirely describe and woefully undersell the breadth of pure comic booking contained in this 10th anniversary hardcover reprinting of Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca’s breakout hit. The title character is homeless teenage girl Jesse Sanchez; she sleeps in abandoned buildings and prowls the streets of Wilkesborough on her skateboard, keeping it safe from ninjas, mad scientists, demons, time-displaced Spanish conquerors, more ninjas, and (with the help of an aged but still bad motherSHUT YOUR MOUTH Afrodisiac) racist gun-toting rednecks. This book may be Rugg’s first but it still hits like a 100-megaton bomb of experimentation in the name of homage and homage in the name of truth. Listen to Mike and Greg talk about how many ways Street Angel is a little slice of comic book heaven for anyone who picks it up.

Robots From Tomorrow episode 102: Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare


For this week’s episode Mike welcomes Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare to the show! Amy and Brandon have been working together for a few years now, most recently having completed the first volume of their creator owned series Rocket Girl over at Image Comics. What’s an artist’s motivation for selling original art? How open should creators be with one another in regards to pay and contracts? How do creators stay motivated and not lose steam? Is Klaus Janson’s name pronounced with a “J” or a “Y” sound? We cover all this, and more! The first volume of Rocket Girl is availavble right now wherever finer comic books are sold.

Defenders #22 por Steve Berger y Sal Buscema

feel however that I should make an ex-comics-canon-enforcer confession and say that when they first had Hulk stop speaking and then later had him speaking in the first person like a modified Thing/J Jonah Jameson, I was really out of sorts about it, because my Hulk talked about himself in the third person and his main concern was who his friends were and weren’t, which was why I loved him and love him still
but guess what
I already had that Hulk for like 300 issues, it’s perfectly cool to change up your whole style once in a while and is actually a really good idea

JD is laying down some Marvel perspective today.

Still pretty proud of my response to this.

I loved Marvel comics when I was a kid; I was a weird kid who didn’t get down with macho stuff, in part because of the general scene in my house & in part because I was scrawny and couldn’t really front like I was tough. In my tiny limited-to-my-personal-friends-and-surroundings comics scene, the idea that macho norm-enforcer types could be into comics would have come as a huge and deeply disappointing surprise; comics, in my mind, were for people who’d already begun to sense that, in the immortal words of Anti-Flag, “their system doesn’t work for you.”
I hope Marvel systematically “ruins” absolutely every one of their legacy characters forever, one after another, and then D.C. runs a Sgt. Rock miniseries where he renounces violence as a means of conflict resolution. May the grousing of the macho comics dudes ascend to Heaven forever and make an acceptable sacrifice unto Galactus
