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!

Now that San Diego Comic Con 2018 is over, it's time to talk about all the news that came out of the convention? Wait, no, that's too much news, let's just talk about the most interesting stuff! On this episode, Martin talks about the X-Men: Black and Uncanny X-Men announcement, the return of Marvel Knights with Donny Cates at the helm, Kelly Sue DeConnick taking over Aquaman, Grant Morrison relaunching Hal Jordan with The Green Lantern, DC's Metal followup, the return of Shazam! to comics, Comixology's next batch of original titles and what may be the biggest news of the weekend, The Silencer is coming to the CW's Arrow with season 7. 
Aaron Bell from the Absolute DC podcast joins Marvel today about their newfound love for Marvel Comics. After years, nay decades, both Martin and Aaron are heavily reading Marvel again and we're confused! What is Marvel doing now that's different and has us excited for the line again? Could it have something to do with an ancient Egyptian curse? Listen in and find out!

Studios and so much more. The duo discuss Bunn's writing process, time management, the importance of marketing yourself, their shared love of horror, and why Emma Frost is the greatest mutant of all time (well maybe)! 
It's Tuesday which means it's time for the news on Comic Talk Today!
