We are thrilled to welcome to the show for the first time queer comic book creator and educator Justin Hall! Justin is an Associate Professor of Comics at the California College of the Arts and a Fulbright Scholar. He's a pioneer historian of LGBTQ comics and in 2012 he curated the anthology No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics, which featured milestone contributions by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer comics creators. Now, Justin's Lambda Literary Award-winning and Eisner-nominated collection is the inspiration for a documentary film directed by Peabody Award-winning and national Emmy-nominated filmmaker Vivian Kleiman. This feature-length film will bring stories from the comics off the page and give you a personal introduction to the dynamic artists and writers who paved the way! Justin discusses the Kickstarter campaign for the film, which runs until May 23rd, as well as his own comic work and much, much more! Links are below!

Though we were unhappy that Bryan could not join us for our latest episode due to his work travels, we are thrilled to bring back to the show special guest Wendi Freeman of the Double Page Spread Podcast! Instead of testing out Steve and Bill's chairs, beds and porridge Wendi joins the boys at the spinner rack as they discuss Milk Wars, Super Sons, Armstrong and The Vault of Spirits, Young Monsters in Love, the Black Hammer-verse and much, much more.  And in celebration of International Women's Month, we also spotlight women artists we really dig and our recommendations for kick ass female led comics. And we celebrate the face that we got through over an hour without going too far off on tangents ... by going off on tangents.  Listen in as and you will find out about the recent importance of bananas in Wendi's life, what Bill thinks of 1970's Hanna-Barbera cartoons and just why the cover girl for our episode is Stevie Nicks!

Bill and Steve offer up an hour plus of retro comics talk as they look back on the very early days of Image Comics. What Todd McFarlane, Jim Lee, Marc Silvestri, Erik Larsen, Jim Valentino and Rob Liefeld did in the early 90's was nothing short of revolutionary for the comic book industry.  Join us as the CBB spinner rack becomes a time machine and we discuss Spawn, Youngblood, WildC.A.T.S., Savage Dragon, Shadowhawk, Cyberforce and more. We also delve into titles that the big two released in the wake of the aforementioned that were very, very Image-y in certain ways.

In the first part of this new episode, Bill Zanowitz interviews Andy Mangels! Andy is a man of many pop culture credits including authoring novels, comic books, and magazine articles and producing DVD collections. Andy is here to discuss the recent Wonder Woman 77 Meets The Bionic Woman from Dynamite and DC which he wrote and which has recently been released in a collected edition. Apart from taking us through this historic first meeting between Princess Diana and Jaime Sommers, Andy also discusses his long standing role in fandom, his work with Gay Comix, his moderating of the first Gays in Comics panel ever and his work producing DVD documentary materials for many TV seasons sets! And if that's not enough we also get to hear about with his performing with the Broadway Bears singing group and about his creating the first prominent LGBT character in the Star Trek universe!

After the interview, Bryan and Steve join up with Bill to discuss a couple of movies that you may have heard were recently released - Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League!

We did things a little different on this episode.  We turn on the tube instead of heading over to the spinner rack as Bill, Bryan and Steve are all on the mic in this ep to talk about the first few weeks of comic book based TV of the 2017-2018 season. Plus we throw alcohol into the mix. We flip the channels to talk about Lucifer, Supergirl, The Gifted, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Riverdale, Gotham, Arrow and Inhumans. Listen to this barely edited episode with some bits of snark, excessive appearances of "um"s and "like"s, Bill forgetting Steve's name and all of us forgetting Lou Diamond Phillips' name.

Bryan and Bill recently went to New York Comic Con and also participated in a number of NYCC Presents events, just as they have in years past! Listen in and you'll hear about when went down at NYCC 2017! Then, while we were recording we went off on a tangent! Neither Bill nor Bryan were able to go to the queer oriented panels at this year's con but that doesn't mean they not did have opinions about the recent panels of a similar stripe that they either hosted or attended.  It turned into a really robust discussion and the CBBs decided to include it in full (and naturally would welcome anyone else's opinions on the subject matter that we cover.) We eventually course correct, get back to the con coverage and then head over to the spinner rack for some chatter about DC Rebirth titles, Marvel Legacy, Iceman, Mister Miracle and more current comics!

We have been quiet on the Comic Book Bears front for most of the summer but we didn't want to send off Summer 2017 without leaving you with another episode.  This time around Bryan talks about what it was like hosting a panel at San Diego Comic Con!

The Comic Book Bears had an unplanned summertime hibernation but we can't think of a better reason to get us up and moving within our cave than to welcome Thom Collins to the show for the first time! Thom is the creative force behind Occultation, a three part graphic novel series that explores a distant dystopian future and what happens when the religious, right-wing fundamentalists take power. The central character, Ellis Becker, is a 6’7″, 340lbs gay man who works as an "extractor" - a highly trained specialist who’s purpose is to extract people, art, literature and anything of value to the human race, without detection. Thom takes us through how he came to develop the universe that Ellis, his teammates and his adversaries inhabit, his creative process in crafting the very distinctive look of the series, his influences and much, much more! Occultation II was the first book in the series released and was the subject of a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign. A campaign to fund Occultation III is under way right now!

After the interview, Bill Z and Steve reconvene to talk about what they have been up to, what their missing co-hosts Bryan and Justin are up to, their experiences at HeroesCon and Garden State Comic Fest and then they head to the spinner rack for reading of books both new (Mage: The Hero Denied; the Batman/Elmer Fudd and Legion of Super-Heroes/Bugs Bunny crossover specials) and old (Common Grounds, Ex Machina) and much more!

Mike and Billy Z came to be comic fans at the same time and they will present their argument that 1973 was a GREAT year to enter the world of four color heroes!

Some of those favorites - 100 Page Super Spectaculars, The Defenders, Justice League of America, OMAC, The Flash, Spider-Man, Jack Kirby, Mike Grell, Cary Bates, Len Wein and much, much, much more!

The (then) current comic talk continued on with Aliens: Defiance, Faith, Avengers: Standoff, The Ultimates, Harley Quinn and Suicide Squad: April Fool’s Day, Injection, The Omega Men, X-Men's Apocalypse Wars, Lois and Clark, Batman, Silver Surfer (complete with an Alicia Masters tangent) and more!

The Comic Book Bears are thrilled to bring back to the show for a second time special guest Steve Lightle! You will know Steve from his decades long association with the Legion of Super-Heroes and as a prominent cover artist (Classic X-Men and The Flash among others), not to mention interior work on a host of titles. In recent times Steve has been the writer and artist of the webcomic Justin Zane.  As Steve details on his website Justin Zane "is the name of a hit tune in 2769 A.D., as well as the name adopted by an incredible mental patient on the satellite asylum known as "the TOMBS."  He lost his freedom because he is too dangerous to be free - or so they are telling him.  The psychiatrist assigned to his case is the intelligent and beautiful Doctor Glimmer Starborn - but she seems too good to be true.  Then there's the matter of the glamorous newscaster Catrina Fellina, the anarchist skrok band known as The Idle Reich, and the destruction of Yasgur's Planet." Steve goes into some of his future plans for Justin Zane, the supporting cast (which includes a character Steve created when he was six years old), his influences, a little bit of the Legion, working for the big two, his artistic process, The Beatles, sci-fi authors Steve loves, H.P. Lovecraft and horror comics ... and as an exclusive he lets us in on a big Justin Zane secret!

We continue to reintroduce episodes that were originally exclusive to the E2 Network feed. Hope you enjoy this one from December of last year!

This week's episode is the first of a two-parter (sadly minus Justin) where Matt, Steve, Bryan and Bill put the comic books back in the bags and boards, put the tops on the longboxes and turn on their TV sets instead. This week our attention is focused on the shows currently airing that are based on DC Comics properties - Gotham, Supergirl, The Flash and Arrow along with a tiny bit of discussion about the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow mini-series event.  Needles to say - SPOILERS if you haven't been caught upon these shows (though it should be mentioned that at the time we recorded this how and next week's episode #76 we weren't quite yet at the mid-season finale point for these programs.) Make sure you come back next week when iZombie, Fear The Walking Dead, The Walking Dead, Jessica Jones and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are on the Comic Book Bears' viewing screens!

CBB Flashback - Comic Book Bears Podcast Issue #62 Part 1 - The One Where These Gay Boys Talked So Long They Had To Split The Episode In Two (Originally Released 5/18/2015)

The first of a two part marathon episode! Show regulars Billy Z, Justin, Bryan, Steve and newly official regular Matt go to the movies, turn on the TV and then take listener questions. (The current comic book talk doesn't hit until part two.) And let's just say there is more cussing and more alcohol consumption during this show than any previous one. First up, Avengers: Age of Ultron gets the spotlight. Next up is Daredevil on Netflix, now that all of us have seen the entire run. Then we are treated to the unforgettable throwdown of the Gotham season finale by Mr. Bryan Pittard. And last but not least it's the first part of our answering listener questions with topics ranging from Astro City to what Warner Brothers/DC is doing wrong in filmland to the Image books we read to the comic creators we find to be the woofiest. Part 2 is coming along real soon!

 

And we will give Matt a proper welcome to the show as a regular on a future episode soon - don't worry!

CBB Flashback - Comic Book Bears Podcast Issue #61 - With Special Guest Jay Piscopo! (Originally Released 4/24/2015)

Justin, Bryan, Steve, Billy Z and that returning Fuzzbellied friend of ours Matt Brossard himself are back with a new episode! First up, the bear boys interview comic creator Jay Piscopo! Jay is the author and illustrator of The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli graphic novel series. He is also the creator of Sea Ghost, Commander X and a host of other characters based out of the Capt'n Eli universe.  Many of his creations have been turned into Mego-style action figures available through his own Nemo Toys. Jay has a signature style, combining 2D characters with 3D backgrounds and he joins us to discuss his body of work. After the interview Jay stays on the mic to join the rest of the crew for some media  and current comic book talk. Netflix's Daredevil and convention talk starts it off.  Then with DC's Convergence event starting up, a number of the tie-in books get air time as well as Jupiter's Circle from Image, Archie's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the Archie vs. Predator crossover from Dark Horse/Archie, Valiant's Bloodshot Reborn and Divinity, Marvel's new Hawkeye series and more!

 

Fair warning - especially since The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli is an all-ages series, we thought we should give you the heads up that we slip in a few slightly naughty words here and there. Nothing that would come close to garnering an R rating but still worth the advanced word if kids are listening in.

Comic Book Bears Podcast Issue #106 - With Special Guest Blue Delliquanti

CBB boys Billy Z and Steve are back from New York Comic Con!  They will be joined by Bryan next week to discuss what their experiences at that massive convention were like but before then they are thrilled to bring to their conversation cave this week the mega talented Blue Delliquanti!!! Blue is the writer and artist of O HUMAN STAR, a long-form online comic that started in 2012 and for which she has launched a Kickstarter campaign to put out a second graphic novel collection. O HUMAN STAR, which has been raved about on the show previously, presents the story of Alastair Sterling, an inventor who wakes up in a lifelike robot body 16 years after his death and must come to terms with the unfamiliar, futuristic world that is the result of his work and his legacy. Along the way he reunites with his former research partner Brendan and comes face to face with another robot whose mind is a copy of Sterling’s – and is living as a teenage girl and as Brendan's daughter - and we then follow the these three coming together as an unconventional family in a not-too-distant future. Blue also lets us in on MEAL, another upcoming project of hers! Love, robots, insect cuisine and Sailor Moon reconsiderations - they are all here in this great conversation!!

Bill, Bryan and Steve are on hand this week for an extra-sized episode as they get ready for this year's New York Comic Con! First up, the CBB boys are thrilled to bring to the show Thomas A. Crowell, Esq.! Thomas is a partner with the law firm of Lane Sash & Larrabee where he counsels clients on a wide range of entertainment law and intellectual property rights issues. He is also the author of The Pocket Lawyer for Comic Book Creators, the very first dedicated legal guide for the comic book industry. The Pocket Lawyer is designed to help emerging artists and veteran professionals in the comic book industry build a solid foundation of business and communication practices and Thomas takes us through key legal issues involving protection of comic book properties. We also hear about the panels and seminars he is presenting at New York Comic Con 2016.

DISCLAIMER: Mr. Crowell’s comments should not be considered "legal advice," nor do they create an attorney-client relationship with the podcast listener.

Then we transition over to another guest joining us, our old friend Chris Cummins! CBB's own Bill and Chris will be co-hosting the Tales from the Toybox event for New York Comic Con's NYCC Presents! This multimedia evening will find Bill and Chris presenting a program about toys from the 60's to the present day which will feature many special guests and some amazing prizes and giveaways! And if that isn't enough, our own Bryan will be hosting  another NYCC Presents event, Flame On! Presents - Fan Feud, which will be a fun filled game show evening!

A Flashback from 12/2014: After an extended break, Billy Z, Bryan and Justin are back on the Comic Book Bears mic with nearly two hours of comic book and geek culture talk. Grant Morrison and Frank Quietly's AMAZING Multiversity: Pax Americana is up first in the spotlight! The comic talk continues with the bears boys weighing in ODY-C #1, Matt Fraction, purple nipples, Wonder Woman, AXIS, Thor, Superior Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, the original Secret Wars, Mike Zeck, Kraven's ass, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Robert Hack, Action Comics, Superman in the New 52, comic book sales and the back issue market. They then take a non-comic detour to discuss the end of the current season of Doctor Who and the Star Wars Episode 7 teaser trailer. Then they turn on the TV to rap about what is happening on Gotham, Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Flash and Constantine. They wrap up as always with the Woof of the Week.  Word of caution - the boys are little more potty mouthed on this ep than usual for some reason.  And who or what is Havok Thanos Del Rio? Well, you'll just have to listen in to find out!!

Comic Book Bear Podcast Issue #98 - With Special Guest Bob Schreck

On this week's episode we are honored to welcome to the show Legendary Comics' Editor in Chief Bob Schreck! Bob has been a longtime fixture in the comic world.  In the early eighties he worked for Creation Entertainment on their groundbreaking fan conventions and from there he transitioned to a position at Marvel and then as Administrative Director at Comico Comics. From there Bob moved onto an editorial position at Dark Horse Comics which he then left to co-found Oni Press. Toward the end of the last century, Bob moved over to DC Comics where he became the group editor for the Batman books as well as overseeing editorial duties on Green Lantern, Green Arrow, the creation of the All-Star imprint and later a stint with Vertigo. After leaving DC, Schreck joined IDW Publishing as a senior editor and since 2011, he has been a VP and EIC of Legendary Comics, the comic book wing of Legendary Pictures! Legendary Comics launched with Frank Miller’s controversial Holy Terror. Other books that have come out of Legendary include Grant Morrison and Frazier Irving’s Annihilator, The Tower Chronicles and other works by notable names such as Mark Waid, Chris Roberson, Shane Davis and Judd Winnick and series and original graphic novels involving franchises that Legendary has been associated with in the film world such as Godzilla, Trick R Treat, Pacific Rim and Krampus. Bill Z, Steve and Justin speak to Bob to about his impressive career and what is brewing at Legendary Comics. After the interview, Matt joins us and we get down to some talk about current comics including Aliens: Defiance, Wonder Woman: Rebirth, Legend, Providence, some Valiant titles and more.

Comic Book Bears Podcast Issue #74 - The One Where They Talk About Comic Books

The Comic Book Bears are back to five strong as Bryan rejoins Matt, Steve, Justin and Bill this week! The state of Marvel is up for discussion first and the boys dig deep into Secret Wars, Thors, The All-New All-Different Avengers, Hercules and more.  Then DC gets time with Justice League: The Darkseid War, Starfire, Bizarro and the new books from Vertigo. Indie talk is dominated by the extraordinary Huck, F__k Fairyland and The Devilers. And Justin's retro pick is not Harry Potter. (That's a hint.) We also included a potty mouth preamble to kick off the episode. (During our pre-show conversation we were cussing up a storm. There's a little of that in the main body of the episode for whatever reason.)

Intro: "Reflections of You" by Bear in Heaven

Comic Book Bears Podcast Issue #70 - with SAINTS’ Sean Lewis!

We start off the show welcoming Sean Lewis for an interview about his upcoming series for Image Comics SAINTS with artist Benjamin Mackey. Sean is an award winning playwright and This American Life personality and he drops in to tell us about this new ongoing series he is writing; a crime/horror action-packed new series that promises heavy metal, sex and deadly one-liners at every turn.  Sean delves into how a Catholic upbringing informs the story, how he and Benjamin came up with the idea for SAINTS, his creative process and a lot more.  After that, we hear about Steve’s trip to DragonCon and he gives us the lowdown on his time and the sights there. Then the comic book talk starts off - Injection, lots of Secret War tie ins (Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows, Civil War, Future Imperfect, Ghost Racers and more), Force Works (!), DC Comics Bombshells and other female magic based books out on the stands, the now obligatory Matt and Steve “Valiant Moment” and we end on mullets and other hair disasters (not a comic).

T.H.U.N.D.E.R.C.A.S.T. - The T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents Podcast, Episode 7

Bill Zanowitz and Rob Staeger are back and it is a big one folks, as they cover T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #7, cover dated August 1966. After their customary tour through the spinner rack of June 1966 (and maybe a little too much Spider-Man talk) they tackle T-Agents #7 which includes some guest appearances from the ladies of Marvel (sorta kinda) ... but more importantly, they end with spotlighting "A Matter of Life and Death", probably the most important T-Agents story ever. T.H.U.N.D.E.R.tracks this time out from Sex Mob and David Bowie.
