Episode 27 - It's All Part of My Fantasy


Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.

Two comics from January 22, 2014. Plus your Nerd Confessions (about your first introduction to the fantasy genre) and Aaron's Inner Child.
On The Couch: writer Josh Williamson.

Show Notes:
The theme of the show this week is fantasy. Not like sex, guys. Like magic and swords and dragons and elves and all that kind of stuff. The literary genre, if you will. We’re looking at two books that fit solidly in that generous world, and talking about what that even means in these days of mash-ups and derivations. Is “traditional fantasy” actually a thing?

Umbral #3 22:10
Dark fantasy with magic, swords, demons and thieves. So far.

Traditional fantasy with elves, wolves and magic. Just don't call it cute.

The Couch - Josh Williamson 49:05
Josh is currently writing Ghosted, published by Image Comics, Masks & Mobsters, published digitally by Monkeybrain and in a hardcover collection by Image, and Captain Midnight, published by Dark Horse Comics.
