Originally podcasted in the Fall of 2011, here is our classic conversation with the late, great Bernie Wrightson. Bernie was an illustrator, a painter, a comic artist, and a former member of the legendary Studio along with Michael Wm. Kaluta, Barry Windsor-Smith and the late Jeffrey Catherine Jones. Stealing a few moments to chat with him was the highlight of our Dragon*Con weekend. Enjoy!
On a rare solo episode of the podcast (mini-episode), Swain recommends 10 movies that will make for great movie nights during the month of October. To keep it fresh, his list is limited to films released within the last 20 years. #Halloween2021
Today's pod is a playback review of the 2012 action-horror film "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter," starring Benjamin Walker, Anthony Mackie, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. This hyper-fictional reimagining of the life of Abe Lincoln as an ax-wielding vampire slayer is perfect viewing for Halloween.
What makes for an awesome adaptation? Is it simply a matter of talent and execution? Are some IPs unadaptable? On the pod, we discuss Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings, HBO's Watchmen, Serenity, Marvel's Netflix shows, and the highly-anticipated "Dune" adaptation out in theaters next month.
We're back for another round of ‘His 5 Best Comics’!
Today's creator is none other than comic book writer/artist Howard Chaykin (American Flagg, Black Kiss, Time²).
In 2011, intergalactic aliens invaded South London and only a band of young street kids could stop them.
On today's pod, we play back the film ‘Attack The Block’, to celebrate its 10th anniversary and discuss the recently-announced sequel.
On this episode, we play back the 1991 buddy action-comedy 'The Last Boy Scout' for its 30th anniversary! Directed by the late Tony Scott and written by Shane Black, this cult classic stars Bruce Willis and Damon Wayans.
"So what's it gonna be, head or gut?"

Greg published his first graphic novel ‘Above The Timberline’ in 2017 to widespread praise.
