GAR! Podcast Episode 4- The one where Glenn nearly dies

Glenn was fighting an incredibly bad cold this week, but did he let that stop him from giving an incredible podcast? NO HE DID NOT BECAUSE HE IS GLENN. You can’t stop Glenn, you can only hope to contain him

So what did we talk about this week?

  • TwoMorrow’s brand new magazine, COMIC BOOK CREATOR
  • Old school hip hop- yes, you’re about to hear two 40+ year old white men talk about rap. (And nerdcore, too.)
  • The Jodi Arias verdict (no really, the Jodi Arias verdict) and problems with today’s media
  • an epic conversation about the worst relationships in comics
  • Judex, a French pulp action hero from the early days of movies

And here’s the links:

Ed Piskor’s Hip Hop Family Tree
Monie Love
Treasury Comics Blog
Adam WarRock
Comic Book Creator from TwoMorrows
Jon B. Cooke’s devastating article on Jack Kirby
So Ray thought this was the TV talking head…
…but GLenn corrected him when he sent the links.
French pulp adventure from the silent movie era
