Podcast Episode 44: Witchblade and Wytches

Nick Hemsing
December 8, 2014

Double Image Image Comics has been the breakout publisher of the last ten or so years when it comes to non-superhero comics. No major publisher is printing as many new concepts and interesting stories these days. Nick and Brock sometimes have trouble finding non-Image books to review for this comic book podcast. So, as an act of pure childish rebellion, they go swimming in the putrid waters of 1990’s Image to dig up something that is everything the modern day Image is not. In the Shooting Gallery of Hate this week is the cheesecake work, Witchblade. The brain bleach of... View Article

Podcast Episode 43: TMNT: Change is Constant and Rasputin

But why do they talk? Sometimes topics are chosen just because they are fish in a barrel. Crossovers in comics are like that for Nick and Brock. Back on schedule for our comic book podcasting duo they take a look at the big crossover plans from Marvel and DC as well as some of the sordid history of the practice. To wash crossovers out of their mouth though, they discussed the feature review of this week, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Change is Constant. TMNT is proof that if you make something enjoyable enough, explaining how you end up with talking... View Article

Using a Cintiq Companion Hybrid

November 12, 2014

It has been a looooong time since I posted any art. If you listen to the podcast, you know that I’ve been very busy for a very long time. Things have calmed down in recent weeks and I took advantage of that break to purchase a Cintiq Companion Hybrid and start drawing again, mostly as I relax in bed and watch television (yay for portability). I may write up a lengthy review of the Companion Hybrid in the future but in a nutshell, it’s a pretty solid device. It’s not quite as fast as it should be, its software isn’t... View Article

Episode 42: Happy! and Parallel Man

Star Wars makes Brock happy in any dimension If you give Brock a chance to talk about Star Wars, he’ll take it. Talking about the Star Wars Holiday Special is like geek crack. Ok, so that’s not the real focus of this comic book podcast, but that’s where it goes sometimes. There is a review in here somewhere. This week CCCP takes a look at Grant Morrison’s Happy! Certain stories can just be comfort food and this is one for Nick. Brock may not agree, though. A disclosure is needed for our review of Parallel Man. Brock has met Christopher... View Article

Episode 41: Star Wars: Dark Empire and Little Nemo

September 22, 2014

Podcasters strike back! An extended hiatus can sometimes sneak up on you. Brock has been busy building his own Death Star, coding the Hello Kitty fansite he’s always wanted, working 80 hours or something like that. Having given up being a productive human being, he’s returned to this comic book podcast to review a blast from his Star Wars obsessed past, Dark Empire from Dark Horse. Do you risk ruining nostalgia by reading your favorites from long ago? Brock and Nick discuss this with crotchety near 40 something eyes. On a lighter note, the CCCP revisits one of Brock and...

June 23, 2014

Interview with the Director of Content for Tapastic, Michael Son Tapastic has become a frequent place for Nick and Brock to visit for new webcomics to review for this comic book podcast. They even stopped calling it Taptastic. This platform is bringing top notch content from around the world and presents it in an easy to use interface. Michael Son, the Director of Content for Tapastic, listened to Fisheye Placebo review on CCCP Podcast # 33 and is now on the show to talk about not only a few more great comics on the site but also a little about...
