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!
