Welcome to Episode 153 of The Orbiting Pod!
This week, we reactivate our tastebuds with Chew/Revival, take root with Trees #1, make an appointment with Doctor Spektor #1, take a peek under the hood with C.O.W.L. #1, and escape Bat Country with Deadly Class #5.
Next, Robin has a chat with Fred Van Lente & Crystal Skillman about their Kickstarter campaign for their play King Kirby, discussing the origins of the project, how they cast the role of Kirby, and the process of writing for stage rather than page.
Finally, we take a look at two recent OGN’s from the Big Two; Spider-Man: Family Business from Marvel, and Black Canary/Zatanna: Bloodspell from DC, discussing whether they succeed as stand alone stories, and the place of the Original Graphic Novel in mainstream comics publishing.
