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!
 
We started in Artist Alley where Jake interviews Ryan Ruffatti of the comic Teleport, and friend of the show Brian Lau and his comic Staunch Ambition. Two great comics that you won’t want to miss, so come in and hear all about them.
 
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!

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5537058/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]

With no guest joining us, we decided to bring you our second installment of our ‘What If?’ series. In this episode, we discuss how life might have changed had aliens actually crashed a UFO in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. And what if the government couldn’t deny it ever happened? How would our methods of transportation evolve? How deep would we be able to fly into space? Would the aliens be friendly or hostile? The possibilities are endless! This is a DON’T MISS episode for any lovers of UFOs and science fiction. Get in here!!

Canned Air #192 Prometheus

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5514562/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 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!

Canned Air #191 Sward Draws

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5494696/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 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 SwardDraws.com. 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 persyn 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 similiar 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 narative 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!

Canned Air #190 What If…Disney Never Existed?

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5470617/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 try something new this week and bring you our first ‘What If?’ episode! Based on the same concept as the Marvel comics of the same title, we will be taking significant moments from throughout pop culture and discussing the different possible outcomes of that event if a few minor details were changed. So to kick it off, we decided to start with Walt Disney!

 
There’s hardly a soul alive who hasn’t heard the name Disney, or who hasn’t had some exposure to the brand. This entertainment titan has its name on many different networks and properties you probably didn’t know about. So this week we propose, What If? Disney Never Existed? How different of a world would we live in without Disney to usher in the age of animation, introduce a new way of family vacationing to the world, and the innovations in both areas that have changed both industries dramatically? The effects run much deeper than you may realize. Come on in and take a glimpse at what a world without Walt Disney might be like.

Canned Air #189 The Threat Continues…

We start this week by paying tribute to the man behind the cowl, Adam West. Adam introduced Batman to a new generation of fans in the 60’s and put his own heart and soul into the Bat, which still remains with the character to this day. With all of his different screen and voice rolls over the years, Adam has left a mark on nearly everyone who’s seen his work. So come on in and help us pay tribute to the Bright Knight!

We are joined by Mark Schmidt of StratumComics.com to talk about issue five of his comic series The Threat, running on Kickstarter until June 29th. 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.
