No rest for the podcaster! The epic 700th episode went down last week and now it's off to San Diego for Comic Con! Because of all the mad planning and prepping, Jimmy does a quickie solo episode to let you know what his media coverage/plans are for this year's SDCC. He recruits some friends to do some mp3 reviews for him so it's not entirely all Jimmy all the time. You're welcome! Thanks to Rich, Emily, Monica and John for sending their audio reviews in. News includes: a new Jessica Jones comic is coming from Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos, DC/Vertigo is bringing a comic book sequel to the 1987 film The Lost Boys, Betty Boop returns to comic books via Dynamite Entertainment, Dark Horse announces more adult coloring books including Star Trek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Bryan Lee O'Malley has a new graphic novel trilogy coming your way. 

Jimmy will do an SDCC recap next week and will probably just release SDCC specials for 2-3 weeks to catch up on life. So, no regular format podcast for at a bit. Hope you enjoy all the massive coverage he's going to get! And if you see him out there, say "hi"!

Episode 688 - Darwyn Cooke Special

Fri, 20 May 2016 07:22:51 +0000

The comic book community lost a great one last week. Darwyn Cooke. The stories of love for the man that followed were endless. He was one of our very first interviews back at San Diego Comic Con in 2005. And in 2011 at Heroes Con, Jimmy sat down with him for a lengthy 1:1. And the final CNI interview with him was at TCAF in 2014. Producer Joe put them all together as a special tribute to hear the still inspiring words of one of the greatest cartoonists to ever grace the page. Jimmy and Joe also say a few words about this astonishing giant of the industry. His work will live on and we sincerely hope more and more people discover it every day. Thank you, Darwyn.
