Welcome everyone to a very music inspired episode of Canned Air! We kick the episode off by talking about bands with fictional personas in this week’s Retro Roundtable. Bands like Kiss, The Gorillaz, The Aquabats, and Ghost have all added an element of fiction to their personas that not only proves entertaining, but adds another level of entertainment to any of their shows. See if we name any of your favorites!

 
Then we are joined by Starset frontman, Dustin Bates to not only talk about Starset and the bands mission, but also discuss The Prox Transmissions, a graphic novel that further expands the galaxy surrounding Starset. The novel, written by Dustin and Marvel’s Peter David (Ben Reilly: Scarlett Spider, Spider-Verse) and illustrated by Mirko Colak, SKAN, and others, is immersed in Starset’s galaxy, telling the story of Dr. Stephen Browning who intercepts a secret transmission from space. But because Starset’s world is laced in dystopia and disaster, Dr. Browning finds himself in chaos as the message proves to be a dire warning from the future — prompting him to seek help from Dr. Aston Wise, as they embark on a quest to discover the meaning of the message with the fate of humanity in their hands. This book hits shelves Sept. 26th so be sure to grab your copy before they’re gone!

Greetings loyal listeners and welcome to our coverage of the 2017 Wizard World Columbus Comic Con! We had a great time, met a lot of amazingly talented people, and watched a lot of great entertainment!

Then we get to talk with Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk) about the Hulk and what he thinks of the characters evolution, followed by a chat with Thomas Ian Nicholas (Rookie of the Year, American Pie) about his films and band, The Thomas Ian Nicholas Band. 
 
Thomas, along with Lani Sarem, was also promoting and selling pre-orders for Sarem’s  upcoming book, Handbook for Mortals. Handbook for Mortals is the first book in the series of this urban fantasy, paranormal romance series by author Lani Sarem. Following Zade through the trials–and romance–of finding her own place in the world, readers will identify with their own struggles to fit in, reflected in the fantastic, yet mundane world of Zade’s life.
 
Stay tuned after the show to hear our audio footage of the David Tennant (Dr. Who, Duck Tales). Some of it is a bit difficult to hear, but its sure to please any Dr. Who fan! Thanks to everyone who took the time to speak with us!

Canned Air #197 Playboy Laughs: The Comedy, Comedians, and Cartoons of Playboy

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5608285/height/100/width/480/thumbnail/no/render-playlist/no/theme/legacy/tdest_id/316455″ height=”100″ width=”480″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen]

This week we focus our attention on one of most influential, and misunderstood, organizations of the 20th century, Playboy. In this weeks Retro Roundtable, we discuss our memories of the magazine, our desires to visit the Playboy mansion, and that some of us did actually read the articles as well!

We then welcome author Patty Farmer to the show to discuss her new book, Playboy Laughs: The Comedy, Comedians, and Cartoons of Playboy.

Playboy Laughs invites readers onto the sets of the organization’s groundbreaking TV shows, Playboy Penthouse and Playboy After Dark. These popular variety series brought top-tier comedians, impressionists, and monologists?as well as the finest musicians?into people’s homes each week.

Readers will learn how before he ever dreamed of conquering the magazine publishing world?and along the way establish a worldwide brand?Hugh Hefner harbored aspirations of making his mark in the world as a cartoonist.

Playboy Laughs delves into the darker aspects of the time as well, tackling the ways Playboy and its comedy stars helped break down social and racial barriers as well as sexual ones.

Known for her devotion to meticulous research and clear, honest storytelling, Farmer has gained the full cooperation of the Playboy organization?and Hugh Hefner himself?making this not only an entertaining read but a trustworthy history of an under-appreciated aspect of American comic culture.

Be sure to visit Patty-Farmer.com and pick up a copy of Playboy Laughs!

Canned Air #196 Drawing Blood: An Interview with TMNT Co-Creator Kevin Eastman!

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5591366/height/100/width/480/thumbnail/no/render-playlist/no/theme/legacy/tdest_id/316455″ height=”100″ width=”480″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen]

This week we talk all things Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! We start by discussing our favorite Heroes in a Half Shell in this week’s Retro Roundtable. We share how we first discovered the Turtles, the highlights from the movies and shows, and how owning the Technodrome toy back in the day meant you’re a “Rich Kid”.

Then we are honored to welcome co-creator of the Turtles Kevin Eastman to the show! We not only talk TMNT with Kevin, but we also discuss Drawing Blood: The Stories Behind the Stories, his new comic series coming to Kickstarter August 1st.

Drawing Blood is a dark-comic-drama (dramadey?), the story behind the stories, a look inside the twisted life of a professional cartoonist. A roller-coaster of show biz and sex, fame and infamy, controlled substances and uncontrolled artists, genius and goons, this series takes you into the darkest corners of a mad world only talked about in the hotel bars of a Comic Con.

Drawing Blood is co-created by Kevin Eastman and filmmaker/ comic book writer, David Abalone. Don’t miss your chance to back this amazing project. It’s the only way to achieve true TURTLE POWER!

Canned Air #194 Fantastic Places And Where To Find Them

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5560256/height/100/width/480/thumbnail/no/render-playlist/no/theme/legacy/tdest_id/316455″ height=”100″ width=”480″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen]

We welcome Mark Schmidt back to the show this week, and Ray Dillon makes his first appearance on yet another great installment of Canned Air!

First, in this week’s Retro Roundtable, titled “Fantastic Places and Where to Find Them“, we take turns sharing what fictional place we would most like to visit. With so many stretching across pop culture, it’s hard to pick just one. Narnia? The Mushroom Kingdom? Latveria?? Come in and see if we name your favorite fictional place.

Then we turn our full attention to Mark and Ray to discuss The Threat, relaunching on Kickstarter very soon. In the not too distant future, humanity is dying at apocalyptic rates. The only solution is through Recombinant DNA, which causes mutations in a small percentage of the population. These people become know as VIRALS.
As cybernetically enhanced humans patrol the streets of Houston, preserving a hellish segregation, those who work for ANITEC are protected in their lives of luxury, while the rest are left to scrape together what life they can in the dangerous under-streets of the city. But there are still some, who will rise to seize a better future, becoming a THREAT to those who would keep them down. Keep an eye out for this Kickstarter for your chance to support The Threat!
