The fifth episode of Scotch & Comics is a Very Special Epsiode, and by that I don't mean one where we all learn an important lesson about bullying or lying to your parents. I mean one where you get to hear a conversation with a comics professional! On his episode I talk to writer and artist Kody Chamberlain, from Image Comics' Sweets and the upcoming re-launch of Punks from MTV Comics. We talk about Sweets in particular (and my hazy confusion about the plot), his craft in general, his opinion on digital comics, and then a brief discussion about what he's currently interested in in the rest of pop culture. And if that wasn't enough - and believe me, it should be - I finish it off with a trio of comics reviews that span genres, companies, and decades. Your regular semi-soused comics reviews, an interview with a very talented creator, and a charming story about waterfowl: you can't ask for much more than that!

WARNING: I mention this in the intro to the podcast, but Kody Chamberlain and I do talk about the plot points and reveals in his comic, Sweets. Spoilers abound, but the rest of the reviews start at about the 40 minute mark.

It's been two long weeks but Scotch & Comics returns, with host Devin R Bruce serving up another round of slightly tipsy comics conversation. With the help of his friends on Twitter, he goes through a random selection of comics from his long boxes as well as one book from his shelf. It's a big glass of superhero comics with a zombie twist and a sprinkling of pixie dust! Featuring conversations about X-Men First Class (the comic, not the movie), Giffen & Levitz's Legion of Super-Heroes, Fables, Welcome to Tranquility, and the zombie comic Things Undone. Scotch and Comics: stumbling through the long boxes to find nuggets of solid gold!

Happy Hallowe'en everyone! In this horror-themed episode of Scotch and Comics, host Devin R Bruce talks about a real Monster of a whisky and then dives into a trove of dystopian sci-fi, monsters, vampires, and other creepy tales! Featuring looks at Smoke by Alex DiCampi and Igor Kordey; The Complete Dracula by Leah Moore, John Reppion, and Colton Worley; a smattering of Marvel Monsters; Brian Azzarello & Eduardo Risso's Spaceman; and a selection from the venerable Creepy Archives, Volume One! Plus side discussions on Canadian ballet films, Kickstarter campaigns, and more. Scotch and Comics: more fun than you can shake a severed limb at!

In this second episode of Scotch and Comics, host Devin R Bruce takes a little bit of time to talk about one of his new favourite Scotch varieties, then dives headfirst into the newly-relaunched (don't call it a reboot!) line of DC Comics titles. After going through The Good, The Bad, and The Questionable, he then cleanses the palate with some decidedly darker non-superhero fare featuring Joe Casey & Steve Parkhouse's The Milkman Murders, Rafael Grampa's Mesmo Delivery, and Cody Chamberlain's Sweets.

NOTE: The DC Universe talk features a spoiler for Nightwing #1 at about the 27 minute mark, so if you want to keep your reading experience relatively pure the rest of the reviews start at about 32:20.

In this first episode of Scotch and Comics, host Devin R Bruce explains the premise of the show, then wades through a mostly-random selection of comics including Locke & Key, Batgirl, Vice, Jew Gangster, Martian Manhunter, and Incorruptible. Fortified by a healthy dose of Scotch whisky, he shares his thoughts and insights with anyone who cares to listen. Scotch and Comics: two of the greatest things ever invented, now in podcast form!
