Episode 37 - The Damage Done



Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.

Two comics from April 9, 2014. Plus your Nerd Confessions (about comics that blew your mind, in the metaphorical sense).
And on The Couch, we talk with writer Fabian Rangel Jr.

Show Notes:

This week's theme is...let’s call it intervention. In the drug parlance. We’re looking at two books that dabble a bit with the effects of drug use and abuse. But in the midst of that, we also delve into some even bigger issues, including sexual violence in comics, date rape drugs, and gender division amongst readers across the industry. 

TL;DR Andrea is crazy and Aaron was drinking. We're back!

Ghost Rider #2 24:30
Character reboots, pink pills and a brief interlude about *that scene* in Invincible #110. Poor Robbie gets the short end of the stick in life and from us.

Great Pacific #14 34:55
If you're power hungry, and your populace is hungry for drugs instead, what are your choices? Fish or cut bait is still applicable here.

The Couch - Fabian Rangel Jr. 44:10
Fabian is the creator of Doc Unknown, a superhero action adventure series, and has lately gotten a lot of attention due to his consistent success self-publishing his comics through Kickstarter and Comixology Submit. You can also find Doc Unknown short stories as a backup in Five Ghosts, published by Image Comics.
