David had the pleasure of talking with Bobby Torres, a scrappy yet meticulous up-and-comer in the indie comic book world. They talk about Bobby’s journey developing his incipient career while balancing family and two jobs (the second of which he took to pay for his comic book habit). All of us can learn a lot from this guy, and if you’re anything like David, you can take away a little bit of inspiration as well.
Chris and Chris are back! Following hot on the heels of their Oscars preview/wrap-up, the guys get to have the last words on the latest film offering from DC, including the irrelevance of Lois Lane, the questionable directional choices of Zach Snyder, and how to do a post-credit sequence the right way. That leads them directly into Marvel Universe territory, where Chris (listen to find out which one!) suggests that DC could learn a thing or two from its competitor. It’s a dirty bomb of Kryptonite thrown right into DC’s face!
Just 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?).

Mike & Rus finally return after about two months, with an all-new time-travel related podcast. This time around, they discuss the new Hulu Original mini-series 11.22.63, based on the 2011 novel by Stephen King, starring James Franco & Sarah Gadon. Make sure you’ve either read the book or watched the series (8 episodes in all) before listening, because many spoilers are discussed as they debate the pros and cons of going back in time to change a huge historical event or just pursuing a romantic relationship with someone in the past.
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.
After 10 weeks of drama, Pat and Chris finally discuss the conclusion of FX’s The People vs. OJ Simpson (we definitely spoil the ending). Before that, though, Chris talks about his experience seeing the defense attorneys from Making a Murderer that could have used a little more production value. Throw in some beer talk, some Backdraft talk, and – as always – a lot of Bane talk, and you’ve got yourselves a steaming new pile of Thank You for Doing This!
David got to talk with Mike Schneider, the innovative anti-artist behind Octal, an anthology of curated comic pitch packets.It’s entertainment, it’s educational, it’s an opportunity, it’s even great design.
Chris (from the Thank You for Doing This! podcast) and his buddy Chris, get together to preview the Oscars… one month after they actually aired (in fairness this was recorded a week prior to the Academy Awards, but incompetence kept it from being posted until now… sorry).
Join Chris and Chris for 60+ minutes of hilarity in the debut episode of their new ongoing podcast*!
*If they ever make another one…
Thank You for Doing This! returns after a month. Chris and Pat quickly make up for lost time and discuss Hulk Hogan (at length), Erin Andrews, and The People vs. OJ Simpson. We dive into the latest Captain America: Civil War trailer and finish off with a discussion on the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. All this and more on the 25th episode of TYFDT!!
