This Means Gwar! With Matt Miner

Can you believe it's been 100 episodes? Me neither! Joining Martin on this momentous occasion is writer and editor Matt Miner whom you may know from such projects as This Nightmare Kills Fascists, and All We Ever Wanted: Stories of a Better World. Matt has a new book out from Waxwork Comics called Poser, a slasher horror story set within the punk rock scene of California that Martin really loved. The two talk about all these projects plus, the merits of Kickstarter, their shared love of anthologies, the evolution of the punk rock scene over the years and more!

Martin returns to Comic Talk Today with a new installment of Secret Origins. This week's week Secret Origins focuses on Captain Marvel/Shazam and the Marvel family as Martin prepares for the upcoming Shazam! relaunch by Geoff Johns and of course, the film that is coming next year. In this episode, Martin analyzes the changing origins of Captain Marvel through the decades by discussing WHIZ Comics #2, Captain Marvel Adventures #18, The Marvel Family #1, Shazam!: The New Beginning #1-4 and Geoff Johns' and Gary Frank's stories encompassing Justice League #7-11, #0, #14-16 and #18-21 from the New 52 era.
