Comic Books Are Burning In Hell (comics)

On this episode of Comic Books Are Burning In Hell, Matt, Joe, Chris and Tucker sit down and deliver the public service of easing the world into a land where there is no new weekly column by Joe McCulloch lining up the various comics and graphic novels that will be released this coming Wednesday. If you've spent the last 13 plus years reading Joe on Tuesday mornings and are now wondering where you are to turn, well, so are Chris, Tucker and Matt. So here it is: your weekly dose of Joe, in podcast form. We tried our best to stay out of his way!

Subjects Discussed in this Episode:

The Work of Yuichi Yokoyama--you can read Matt's interview with Yokoyama here,. His new book is called Iceland, and you can track it down from Retrofit if it isn't at your local store.

Poppies of Iraq, by Brigitte Findakly--you can find more information about this graphic memoir at the publisher's site.

Pope Hats #5, by Ethan Rilly--you can find more info over at the publisher's site.

What is a Glacier, by Sophie Yanow--you can grab a copy at Retrofit's site if this is hard to come by.

It’s a podcast crossover as Trash Twins co-host Katie Skelly shows up to talk about Moyoco Anno’s Insufficient Direction. Then Joe and Chris talk about Dominique Goblet’s Pretending Is Lying. It’s a short episode but we actually got decent audio recording equipment for once. Don’t expect that to ever happen again.
