We welcome Ryan Little, creator of the comic series Lonesomes, back to the show to first help us celebrate Mark Hamill in this week’s Retro Roundtable. Mark recently received the news that he’d be receiving his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2018, and we here at Canned Air say, “It’s about time!” He has defined, and redefined, some of the most iconic characters that pop culture has ever seen. Come in and help us celebrate the man, the myth, the legend, Mark Hamill!

Then we turn our attention to Ryan Little to discuss his new comic starting on Kickstarter July 11th, Prometheus. You've heard the legend of Prometheus before; the titan who stole the flame of knowledge from the gods and gave it to mortal man, allowing us to grow and thrive.

For his trespass he was locked away to an eternal punishment at the hands of "The Eagle", a creature of Olympus that would make sure humanity's martyr would suffer for all time. Soon Prometheus faded from fact to fiction to legend, but he never a gave up on us.

The story begins with a battered Prometheus mysteriously liberated from his captivity and dying to see what mankind has made the knowledge he's suffered so long for. And what did he find? Our modern world of nonstop pop culture, rampant anti-intellectualism, and a burgeoning classism. One thing became abundantly clear through the noise of humanity's struggles: someone has stolen the flame of knowledge. And now he's going to get it back.

Be sure to check out the Kickstarter and throw some support toward this project!

We welcome comic and tattoo artist Adam Sward to the show this week to first help us talk about the Transformers in this week’s Retro Roundtable. Michael Bay has left his unwanted mark on this beloved franchise and has managed to make the worst Transformer film yet, so we look back before the day of Bay and remember the best of our favorite Robots in Disguise. Come on in and let us help you wash the taste of The Last Knight out of your mouth.

Then we talk with Adam about his amazing artwork at Illustrating professionally for the last ten years, Adam has drawn everything from comics, to posters, album art, and tattoos. Adam also is the writer and illustrator of the comic Electric Hangover.

Electric Hangover is about relationships, identity, and the frequent adaptations one makes to get through life. Its a story of a group of friends (a witch, her brother, a couch-crashing clerk, the person that he falls for, and a drug-addled robot that seems to keep everyone human) over the course of a year or so, in a time and place somewhat similar to now. Aliens, demonic forces, internet fame, pop-culture diatribes, explosions, love, filthy language, and lots of coffee. There is also a frequent break in the narrative where the artist and writer argue over the way they are telling the story. Electric Hangover; Reboot Your Sense of Self. This is a great episode you won’t want to miss!

Throw on some sun glasses and sunscreen as we celebrate the arrival of summer. We welcome Todd Tochioka of to the show as we remember our favorite summer movies in this week’s Retro Roundtable. Whether they were made and marketed as summer movies, or they just remind you personally of summer, we remember the best and worst of the films that make us feel like spending a day at the beach.
Then we turn our attention to Todd to discuss Kindred Homecomings, his comic available on The comic is about Jane Borchardt, a hard working actress living in Los Angeles, CA. The daily grind can get exhausting after a while, so when she unexpectedly receives word that she's inherited her estranged grandmother's coastal property in the sleepy area of Solano County, she packs her weekend bag and heads north up the Pacific Coast Highway.
Although the house is not in livable condition, Jane decides to clean and fix up what she can in order to sell the property as soon as possible. At night, there are strange noises coming from within the walls, and with the help of the county sherriff, Malinda Claire, Jane soon discovers it's something much more terrifying than rats in the walls.
Featuring 2017 ICFFA Actress of the Year, Jamie Bernatte (@jamiebernadett), as Jane Borchardt and the Unwritable Rant podcast's Juliette Miranda (@morningneurosis) as Sheriff Malinda Claire, Kindred Homecomings, will be released as a full-color three-issue limited comic book series.  Head over to Snug Comics to pre-order your copy and check out a few pages from the book as well!

We all stay home this week to hide from an oncoming snow storm, but the miracle that is Skype allows us to record an episode none the less!

We start the episode off talking about John Goodman's roles from over the years. With the release of Kong: Skull Island and John receiving his own star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, we felt the topic only appropriate. Remember Arachnaphobia? Remember Raising Arizona? Canned Air remembers.
