Welcome back to Scotch & Comics! It’s me, Devin R Bruce, coming to you with the first episode in…over two years? Really? It feels like shorter than that. So join me as I kick the tires and take this old podcast out for a spin.
In this episode I talk about a lot of different comic books, including: Jonah Hex: Riders of the Worm and Such from DC/Vertigo; Goodnight Paradise from TKO Studios; We Stand On Guard from Image; Dork from Dark Horse; Hex Wives from DC/Vertigo; and Three Fingers from Top Shelf. Which book made me surprisingly angsty and depressed? Which book explains the real reason for the death of Marilyn Monroe? Which book had an unexpected appearance by a late nineteenth-century giant of English literature? All these questions will be answered, and more. Plus: the debut of a new segment (which is also the first segment)! It’s a bold, strange new era for Scotch & Comics. Thanks for being here.
- A quick guide to the Whisky Producing Regions of Scotland.
- The crest of Ballantine’s Finest, a sight to behold.
- Bill Nye’s confusing Canada commentary
- I strongly recommend checking out previews of all the first issues from TKO Studios online. They’re truly excellent.
- This episode was recorded the week before it was announced that Hex Wives was cancelled with issue 6. I’d still recommend the trade when it comes out, though.
- If you haven’t heard it, the Thrilling Adventure Hour is a must listen.
