Comics Podcast: 54 | Rick Spears

Aug 10, 2014

The Capes Crew welcomes Oni Press The Auteur writer Rick Spears. He shares with us his early years in the Movie Business and how that turned into writing comics. We then dive deep into The Auteur with some Q n A about the book and learn what inspired Rick to create such an over the top and visually stimulating comic.
Next we transition into what we are reading which includes reviews on: Zenescope’s various Grimm Fairy Tale books, Fanboy comics The Arcs,  Oni Press The Bunker and Marvel’s Legendary Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon. Casey also gives a tearful good buy to his favorite Marvel book Moon Knight.
Finally we dig into our topic lead by Piper covering the announcement that Guardians of the Galaxy had a 44% female viewership and what this means for the future of comics, movies and female characters.
It wouldn’t be a Capes episode if we didn’t preach our disappoint with Batman v Superman and discuss the latest happenings around the comic world. This episode is a good one and full of laughs, Please Enjoy!
