Episode 32 – Periwinkle Skies w/ Ming Doyle

We’re back! I know we said Rick Remender would be our guest, but due to some last minute complications, we had to reschedule him (to next week!). So Chris & Euge get to sit with the lovely and talented Ming Doyle, artist of The Loneliest Astronauts and whose work you’ve also seen in Marvel’s Girl Comics anthology. It’s an episode about HeroesCon, dream romance, and lovely skies as the crew is back again with the incredible, and all that goodness.

The Rundown

  • Thanks again to the wonderful Ming Doyle for effortlessly sliding from third chair into guest on this very crazy episode. Check out all her stuff at her website, talk to her on twitter, and buy her amazing sketchbook here. The sketchbook is really beautiful, guys.
  • Also check out Ming’s work on The Loneliest Astronauts, written by former third-chair Kevin Church! Why not buy Loneliest Astronauts stuff, like the book? Or buttons? Go check it out.
  • Rick Remender will be on next week to talk about Fear Agent, Bulletstorm, and a host other things.
  • Check out Comics Alliance’s Ask Chris panel from HeroesCon over at this link. Stay for Chris Haley‘s question. Yes, I do have my answer, but you’ll just have to ask me on twitter or something.
  • Go check out the Adam WarRock debut single, “Starving Artist” at this link. Remember, downloading it gets you a secret track from me.
  • For reference, this is what Ming’s apartment apparently looks like.
  • Check out Sims at The ISB, Comics Alliance, his new webcomic Awesome Hospital, as well as the complete Solomon Stone at ActionAgeComics.
  • Check out Euge’s music at AdamWarRock.com.
  • I know I said I’d have a new theme for this ep, but no joke….I had it written out, and I accidentally closed the file without saving. This happened like, a day or two ago. ๐Ÿ™ย  I’ll have a new theme hopefully next week. DAMN YOU TECHNOLOGY!!!

  1. Wow! I read Cam Jansen growing up too and am kind of startled to have heard a reference on the podcast.

    I loved ’em so much that I was convinced I had a photographic memory (and would insist to people that I did), even though I very clearly didn’t.

  2. Hey Euge, why travel all the way to Atomic in Baltimore for your comics? There’s that decent shop out in College Park. Or better yet, try Third Eye Comics out in Annapolis, the shop I go to. Biggest damn trade paperback wall I’ve ever seen and has a pretty baller staff. Plus, it’s the only Eisner-nominated shop I know of around the region. So…yeah.

    Btw, fucking big ups on the single man. Stellar little number there.

    1. Huh. I’ll definitely check out 3rd Eye Comics. I just know that Fantom closed in PCity mall (where I commute), and Big Planet in CPark and Fairfax are just far away to make it not easy for me to make regular trips to.

  3. Newspaper reporterin’ seemed so sassy and cool when I was growing up! You might almost have to pull a “Superman Returns” fake timeless retro number to make a story like that work now, though.

    Basically my unreasonable demand is that I want the Daily Planet bullpen to be like the workroom in “Project Runway” but fraught with mortal and moral peril.

  4. It’s totally not an Asian thing – it’s a “time you got to the X-Men” thing; Jubilee hate is about two things;

    1) People who came to the X-Men before you did, who’s X-Sweet-Heart was Kitty Pryde, and they don’t get that they were manipulated in the same way you were, and as such Kitty Pryde is awesome and Jubilee is lame.
    2) Wesley Crusher factor. Why does that teenager get to hang out with Wolverine, when I am so much cooler than she?

    1. Please note that when I say shops in DC suck, I don’t necessarily mean the shops in Fairfax or the shops in College Park, which are basically not easily reached by me during the week.

  5. I’m really surprised that Sims liked the Shed story, because I thought it was exactly what Sims hated about comics nowadays–just mindless blood and gore for no real reason, and it pretty much took away everything that made Lizard an interesting character. But hey, whatever strokes your boat.

    Also mad props to Ming Doyle–her mini-comics are great, and The Loneliest Astronauts looks really cool, and just bookmarked it. ๐Ÿ˜€
