Wherein all-star guest, Caitlín Rosberg and Marty discuss helping parents transition their kids to chapter books, through the lens of comics! The conversation revolves around the idea of helping comics loving parents help their kids transition to middle grade (8 years old to 12) books.
 
DC has created a MG and YA imprint, complete with easy to read branding. Marvel, in contrast, has licensed this to IDW.
Both of the big 2's work with MG and YA pale in comparison to the work of Rania Telgemeir
 
Also, it's Marty and Caitlín hanging out, just like they do at C2E2!
 
Check out Caitlín's new podcast, UniCURSEity.

Hi there Patrons and ACCtion Heroes!
 
The audio file says it all, but we have some formatting changes coming down the pike. We're spinning off Pullbox into its own weekly show. This way, we get to focus on our core mission of introducing new comics and comics-related media to our community. We tend to think of it as gate-opening. We are still going to do regular deep dives into other topics. For example, in the coming weeks, we have Immortal Hulk and Horror, Romantic Representation in Comics, and an interview with writer Jon Tsuei. But we're also adding a "lighter" topic into the rotation. Think of those topics as being palate cleansers for the dark and gritty Daredevil/Batman stories that Marty cannot stop bringing up. Examples of those topics include All Ages Media, State of the Arrowverse, and romance in general. Bookclub isn't going anywhere. In fact, this next bookclub will be Bone! And because Nick loves it so, we're going to do two whole shows on it, about a month apart. Look for our next Book Club vote in the coming weeks!
 
No matter what changes, our purpose remains the same: To open up the comics community so that it is welcoming to all people. Comics are for everyone, and we want to share the joy they bring with everyone. These changes let us double down on our commitment to you. The format changes are taking place this week. Let us know how we're doing either on Patreon or wherever you get your podcasts (ie a 5-star review would be great!)

The Episode Where I get to speak to Somer and Steve about Joker

Your guests are:

Steven Barnes
Somer Suter
 

Joker

Todd Phillips steps away from the dick and fart jokes, to try his hand at a serious movie, and the result was Joker. I had the feeling that this was going to be DC’s first breakout movie in the modern era, and wanted to talk to a couple of friends who saw the movie. In this episode, Producer Tim and Somer Suter talk for about an hour about Joker. What worked, what messages were being delivered, what didn’t work, and why, despite Somer’s disappointment, this was a good movie.
