'King Tiger #1'Randy Stradley and Doug Wheatley have been working on the King Tiger series here and there as they’ve piggybacked the story into other comics, however, now it will be getting it’s own, standalone line starting with King Tiger #1.

Blood, death, and fire—the darkest kind of magic. A monstrous secret from King Tiger’s past has found the mystic warrior, but can Tiger’s skills and sorcery triumph against an unthinkable supernatural obscenity linked to his own destiny? If the Tiger falls, the Dragon with rise!

King Tiger #1 will be out in August and Nerdist did a nice interview with Randy Stradley you can check out here.

N: So, with that in mind, what can readers look forward to from this series?

RS: Well, without giving too much away, we’ll learn a little bit about the kind of man Tiger used to be compared to who he is now. And Tiger’s past catches up with him in a really huge and horrible way—death and destruction on a massive scale. There’s lots of kung fu, sword fighting, and even gun play, all with a magical twist. But at its heart, this is really a love story. And Doug Wheatley is making every panel of it awesome.

Podcasts in Review

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 189 packs in a couple interviews. First up is Gabe Smith and Ryan Merrill, the writer and artist for the Human comic series. They talk about all the work that goes into getting a comic started, funded and promoted. They talk about the writing, the artwork and going to conventions. For anyone interesting in getting a comic project started or in learning more how the process works, it’s a nice interview to check out. Afterwards they have an interview with Darren Hayes and Tim Stanton from the He Said He Said podcast. It’s a fun interview, but also a random one as they talk about Savage Garden (Darren’s band), Star Wars and how they met. Overall, a fun episode.

Dead Talks: Episode #35 is hosted by Justin, John, and Antoinette as they review The Walking Dead episode “Forget”. Now this is my first step into the world of The Walking Dead podcasts, and as a fan of TWD, I absolutely loved this podcast. The hosts are great, they do a terrific job of covering the television episode and all the cool moments, plus there’s some great observations of comic elements which I would have missed as I haven’t read the comics yet. I’ll definitely be checking out more of this show as it’s a great way to get your Walking Dead fix.

Fangirl Chat: the Strange Magic episode is hosted by Tricia and Kay as they give a very kind review of Strange Magic. It includes a quick description of the movie, discussion of George’s comments about the movie, great animated moments, bad moments, the good and bad storytelling, and more. The episode ended kind of abruptly, and I have to admit the discussion didn’t have the best flow. I kind of got the feeling it was hard to say a lot of positive things about the movie without being critical of it’s missteps and missed opportunities. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
