Word Balloon Podcast Judd Winick's Hilo The Boy Who Crashed to Earth & Duane Burghard Sci-Fi Conspiracy Gopto
Judd Winick is back! We loved his superhero work for years at DC and Marvel (Batman: Under The Red Hood, Shazam, Exiles, The Outsiders, Green Lantern,) and running the alternate earth adventures of Marvel's Exiles, but it's been a long time since we've enjoyed the art and funny side of Winick's storytelling.
The Cartoonist behind Frumpy The Clown and Barry Ween has put himself back behind the drafting table to draw and write this hilarious action adventure that will delight children and thoroughly entertain their parents with legitimate comic book style action .
We talk about his feelings on this series compared to his superhero work, his work on The Hulu superhero parody The Awesomes created by Seth Meyers, and more .
Then Sci-Fi writer Duane Burghard brings his own military background into his new novel Gopto combining real world practicality with an alien conspiracy. Duane was also an online talk show host in the early pre-podcast net era, and he shares memories of some famous interviews he got to do i the sci-fi world.
