Up Late With Rus & Pat • Episode 45

spider-man-rhino-comic_0Just over two weeks, and Rus & Pat are back! This is another 2 hour episode, but it’s basically two episodes in one. It starts with a brief discussion of Patrick Warburton and Louis CK, leading into the now-late Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond) which leads into talking about the ’80s show Remington Steele, Pierce Brosnan, and James Bond and Batman films. They then get into who would make a cool villain in the upcoming film Spider-Man • Homecoming. The second half of this episode has the guys talking about personal comics projects they’re working on these days when they should be sleeping (according to doctors — what do they know?).

More on David Gallaher (from the press release)…

In addition to his work as Chief Creative Officer for Bottled Lightning Inc., Gallaher has written for Marvel Comics, The New York City Police Department, and McGraw-Hill and served as an editor on Attack on Titan, Fairy Tail and Sailor Moon for Kodansha,. For five years shortly after college, he taught in the Maryland Public School System as a special education teacher.

“My experiences as an educator informs so much of THE ONLY LIVING BOY,” said Gallaher. “Growing up can often feel lonely and isolating. As teacher, I saw firsthand how anxiety can haunt children. With this series, I’m exploring how children adapt to adversity. Readers might gravitate to this story because of the exotic and dangerous creatures, but the story will resonate because the characters grapple with issues that kids relate to, like intolerance, self-confidence, and feeling like the odd one out.

Thank You for Doing This • A Double-Dose of Top Fives!

handChris and Pat triumphantly return (once again) to tackle two incredibly important Top Five topics…Hot on the heels of the Suicide Squad trailer, the guys muse over the size of the shoes that Jared Leto has to fill as the Joker. This served as the catalyst to discuss who should be next in line to perform another iconic comic book hero: Wolverine. Then, in Part 2 (buckle up, it’s a long one), Chris and Pat take turns guessing the plots of TV shows they have never heard of. Trust us, our versions are WAY better.
