TOTLB S19 YouTube Originals – Origin

Before making our trip down to Comic Con International, very little was known about the Youtube Originals show, Origin. This trailer debuted while we were there!

The show follows Lana & Logan, played by Natalia Tena and Tom Felton! Not much is still known about this show, but it follows a group of people who are stranded on a space ship, heading towards a far planet!! You witness everyone trying to cope and help with the situation, while also finding out that one of the passengers is definitely not what they seem!!

The show sounds awesome, and we had the opportunity to sit in on the Comic Con International panel!! Watching the actors speak about the show got me excited to watch!! Hopefully you all will watch, and listen to the episode!!

TOTLB S18 Youtube Original – Impulse

I started watching the Youtube “Original,” TV show, Impulse, a little bit before we headed out to Comic Con International!

What a crazy cool idea!! The very first scene in the pilot, sucks you in, without really knowing what is going on!! Two guys fighting, and teleporting, between what seems like an iceberg in the middle of nowhere, and a crowded subway car. It always peaks my interest when the action starts the movie, and every move from then on, represents a step towards knowing what the hell was going on! Starring Maddie Hasson as Henrietta Coles, whom we discover (as does she) has the ability to transport!

The show explores “Henry’s” ability to reconcile her brand new powers, while going through the pain of someone trying to rape her. We had the awesome chance to sit in on the Impulse panel, at Comic Con International! The awesome stars of this show, tell us about the show, and where we go from here!! The actors seemed super pumped about the show, and it resonated through to the audience! Definitely check this out if you haven’t had the chance, and listen to the panel!!

TOTLB 093 Where Are We Going

AND we’re back!! Here is episode 93!! This is the small bit of recording that we did during San Diego Comic Con! Mostly you’ll hear Gabe and Jonthan giving me directions, while being absolutely hilarious all at the same time!! Gabe and Jon watch some random guy clean his whole car with paper towels, and Jon critiques a mural on a wall!! There are also these awesome floor interviews, with these awesome people:

Ray ChouSkies of Fire

TOTLB S17 Fanbase Press

Because we couldn’t go through Comic Con International without dropping in on our friends from Fanbase Press!! We spent a little bit of time catching up with Barbra and Bryant! We do speak a little bit about what they have been up too, since the last time that we spoke. Their awesome team behind Quince, was nominated for an Eisner Award, in the Best Digital Comic category. They are doing wonders with that amazing book!!

Come catch up with Fanbase Press with us! If you haven’t already, make sure that you go read their books, and listen to their shows!! Quince, Penguins VS Possums, The Margin, and Fanbases overall creations are just amazing!!

TOTLB S16 Prop Store Collectibles

Stephen Lane is the CEO of Prop Store! This year is Prop Store’s 20th anniversary!! In 1998 Stephen took his love of movies, and turned it into something magical! For those of us that also love movies, and are collectors in our own right, Prop Store is definitely the place to keep your eyes glued to! With offices in London, and LA, and over thirty employee’s, Prop Store has amassed more than 25,000 square feet of props and costumes!

Stephen tells a little bit about his story. Why and how he came about some of the items in his catalog, as well as his love for everything that is “movie.” We speak about some of his more favorite pieces that he wishes he could have in his own personal collection as well. It takes him a full year to get one auction every year, but the amount of items, and the quality of items, makes it something that a collector should definitely take a look at!! The next auction takes place on September 20th, 2018! Some of the highlights of this auction include; Marty McFly’s Hoverboard, Anakin Skylwaker Hero Lightsaber, Jumanji Game board, with the full auction catalog to release on August 30th! If you think you might want to bid on something, go and register!!

Listening to Stephen you can tell that he is a GIANT movie nerd, just like the rest of us! Do not miss out on this interview, and make sure you check out the Prop Store website for more information! The props that were displayed at Comic Con were absolutely stunning, and one/all of them could be yours!!

TOTLB S16 Joe Casey Image Comics

We had the awesome opportunity to speak with Joe Casey from Image Comics while we were at Comic Con International 2018! Joe has been working on comic books for over 20 years, and he is a super interesting guy to speak with!! We had the pleasure of speaking to him about New Lieutenants of Metal and MCMLXXV during this interview!

Issue one of New Lieutenants of Metal hit comic book stores July 4th, of 2018! This is the “most kick ass head banging heroes ever assembled.” They are ready to strike down any threat that comes their way, and do it with a little “metal!” I don’t think that Casey is quite sure where he came up with this idea, but the ideas that come out of his brain are hilarious and worth the read!! With this book, we also discuss the fact that each issue will come with a soundtrack. We discuss where this idea came from, and what influences those soundtracks!

Issue one of MCMLXXV will come out September 12th, 2018! This book tells the story of Pamela Evans. By day she is what we might consider an average cab driver, serving the masses. By night, she turns in to Pamela Evans, “monster fighter.” Not only does she fight crime, she fights crime with an enchanted tire iron!! Not going to lie, that might be the coolest super powered weapon as of late!! If that description doesn’t sell the book for you, listen to the episode. Joe, again, not sure where the ideas come from, tells us a little bit about the book, and some of the ideas behind!!

Joe was great, and if you’ve been following his career at all, you know that you’re in for a crazy, wild, but great ride!!

TOTLB S15 Mego Returns Comic Con International

The Mego Corporation was founded in 1954, but turned to doing license action figures in 1971! One of the first action figures was NFL Hall of Famer, Joe Namath. But they didn’t stop there, as they would include characters from the Planet of the Apes, Star Trek, Micronauts, and so much more, boasting over $100 million at its peak!! Unfortunately, in 1983 Mego closed down, bringing an end to what once was one of the greatest action figures makers in existence!!

The great news is, that in 2018, 34 years after originally closing, MEGO IS BACK!! Comic Con International 2018 brought about this awesome news!! With the help of “Broadway Joe” himself, the Mego Corporation announced that they would be returning, with exclusives in Target stores around the country!

We attended the Mego Corporation panel during Comic Con (video above)! We also got to speak with Paul Clark AKA “Doctor Mego.” He is the Mego action figure expert! He can tell you everything you ever want to know about the whole line! PLUS, HE is the person who has been creating Mego parts for over 20 years, on his spare time, AND with the company! He is the perfect person to be “the man behind the scenes.” PLUS, we get to speak with the man himself, Marty Abrams. He has been the man behind the company for pretty much it’s whole inception! You’ll hear him speak about why it’s coming back, why target, and what the plans are for the future!!

TOTLB S14 The Man In The High Castle Isa and Daniel

Man In The High Castle debuted back in January of 2015!! Based on the 1962 novel, bearing the same name, by Philip K. Dick. Man In The High Castle is a dystopian story about an alternate reality. In this alternate reality the Axis powers won World War II and divided the United States into the Greater Nazi Reich, with the Japanese Pacific States to the west. The show follows characters, whose lives not begin to intersect with each other, when they watch a series of propaganda videos, that show a different version of history, from their own.

In the first part to our Man In The High Castle, Comic Con International, coverage, we speak with executive producers, Isa Dick Hackett (daughter of original creator, Phillip K. Dick) and Daniel Percival. Isa is able to give us some great inside knowledge about how her father would have felt like in society today, as well as his insights into the story. Plus they give us some awesome glimpses into what is coming for season three! If you haven’t watched this series yet, do your due diligence, and go binge watch it!!

TOTLB S13 Rick Remender

At Comic Con International 2018, we had the amazing opportunity to speak with Rick Remender!

Deadly Class is a comic book that Rick Remender, the writer/creator, debuted in 2014! The comic book revolves around Marcus Lopez, a guy living on the streets, trying to transition into a school of assassins! Up until his decision to enroll in the school of assassins, Marcus has lived a pretty rough life! His parents died in a horrific accident, he was placed in a grueling orphanage, and he has done some horrible things as a response. This book tells the story of his enrollment, plus the lives of his classmates!

In April 2018, SYFY picked up the pilot, to make a series, that will release in 2019! THIS is the reason we had the amazing opportunity to speak with Rick Remender during Comic Con! We get to speak with him about some of his favorite scenes that have already been recorded from the pilot, as well as where he thinks (without spoilers) this first season will take us!! PLUS, not only is Rick Remender writing, and creating the TV series so that it doesn’t go astray, BUT the Russo Brothers are also on board!! Amazing creators, and actors, make this show a MUST see when it debuts in 2019!

Weirdly, but awesome, we also speak about the music that will accompany the TV show, and has accompanied Rick as he created the comic book/TV show! Rick talks about needing to get back to making “Fuck You” music! Essentially, getting back to your roots, going out of your way to make music, or any other creation, that YOU like. Not something that will appease the masses, but rock and roll that goes back to it’s roots! Rick sounds absolutely pumped, and excited for this show to debut, which gives us the feeling that he is all in, and that makes us excited! Sounds like SYFY will have a winner on their hands!!

TOTLB 092 Knights At the Rectangle Table

I KNOW that everyone has been waiting for a normal episode to hit!! Trying to get all of our Comic Con International coverage out to you, but I did also want to make sure that I put a regular episode out, in the middle of it all!!

Episode 92 takes place BEFORE Comic Con International! We all get together at Jon’s comic book shop, Hall of Justice, and, as you know, things get rowdy!! We talk about the spoiler that came of Batman’s wedding, plus all of the things we were excited for, about Comic Con!

No interviews for this one! Just straight laughter!!
