We welcome comic creators Jerome Walford of ForwardComix.com, Miguel Guerra of 7Robots.com and Jaques Nyemb of NotSoSuperComics.com to talk about the Gwan Anthology, now available at ForwardComix.com, Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
The Gwan Anthology is a collection of creator-owned short stories, centered around themes of foreign lands, the immigrant experience and cultural fusion.
The overall goal for this anthology is to highlight and celebrate comic creators who produce work with a sense of the immigrant/expat perspective, expressing both the joys and challenges of such a journey. The anthology is open to any genre: sci-fi, fantasy or slice of life; open to both real and imagined experiences. This anthology is a beautiful work of art and a title you won’t want to miss out on!
In this week’s ‘Retro Roundtable’, we discuss some of the most well known wealthy fictional characters as well as what each of us might do with a new found fortune. How would you spend your riches? Let us know on Twitter!

Joining us all the way from Italy, we welcome author and creator Gilbert Gallo to talk about his upcoming comic 'Sancta Sactorum' currently running on Indiegogo until November 4th.
This graphic novel faces strong themes like faith, religion and gives a new, modern, fast and furious view of some of the most important heroes in human history: the Saints. Our main characters are not "perfect" Saints, but "imperfect" human sinners instead, who can wield the miracles hidden in the Holy Relics. They are called the Martyrs. The Saints of the new Church persecute the Martyrs as dangerous heretics and claim one of them is the Antichrist in disguise. The Martyrs on the other hand wish to stop the Patriarch from erasing all human sinners from the Earth along with Demons. Who's right? Who's wrong? If your a fan of 'Preacher' or 'The Da Vinci Code' then this book is for you!
In this weeks 'Retro Roundtable' we discuss one of Marvel's most vicious heroes, Wolverine. We touch on the ups and downs of Wolverine in cinema, what appeals to us about the character, and the release of the new 'Logan' teaser poster. This is one episode you won't want to miss, Bub!

This spend this week's episode reflecting on our time at the Cincinnati Comic Expo 2016! We discuss what we picked up, a few of the famous vehicles we saw, and everything that comes up in between.
The Cincinnati Comic Expo was born when Director Andrew Satterfield—a lifelong Cincinnatian and comics collector—was traveling to yet another comic book show out of town when he was filled with the desire to bring a great comics and pop culture convention to Cincinnati. He decided to make it happen in 2010.
In 2015, the Cincinnati Comic Expo proved to be the largest to-date with 24,000 individuals passing through the convention center over the 3 day event!
In this short period of time, fans and professionals have recognized the Cincinnati Comic Expo as one of the premier comic conventions in the Midwest.
Stay tuned after the show for a panel featuring Ray Park, better known as 'Darth Maul'. Don't miss this episode!
