A Podcast with Ross and Fawn #138 - SPX-Men

A Podcast with Ross and Nick

Fawn gets in on the fun as we dissect an EXTREME two-part story from X-Men: The Animated Series episodes #48-49 (s4 e6-7 on Netflix). And, of course, we've got stupid screencaps for you from both episode 48 and episode 49.

Magneto has decided to give the mutants a home away from home on Asteroid M. But everything doesn't go to plan and Magneto's most zealous follower ends up becoming his most deadly enemy! Oooo!!

After that, we talk about our magnificent road trip to the 2012 Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Maryland. Ross, Nick, and special guest Fawn were at the show last weekend repping Super Haters, Stick Cats, Time Log, Wet Moon, Glory, and more.

Fawn kickin' it at Nick's SPX table

    Double shoutout! Good day to be a fan. It was nice to meet you Nick and Fawn(maybe next year Ross).

  2. 2 nick marino

    great meeting you too. i dunno what the hell Ross was doing at the time. probably making out with Dan Clowes. I HOPE IT WAS WORTH IT, ROSS.

  3. 3 Smars

    haha cool. thanks for the shout out mate! X3

    hm... i was going to suggest that maybe you try and do some anime conventions. I would think you would do pretty good at some of those.
    they're usually not fully anime and and more so all comics and weird comics. just anything. yup.

    oooh! or... do you guys have any of those awesome one day shows that like local comic shops hold? we have them here every 3 months, those are always good. C:
    seriously... hit up some of those small college cons. i do those. those guys are always hungry for content. haha

    haha! i love the picture of Fawn at the table, what kind of facial expression is that?! it's some ambiguous mix of fatigue, annoyance, a strange smile, and.. something...

    Oh my god you guys are so hilarious. It was nice meeting you guys, too. We should hang out next SPX if you all come.

    And yes, Michelle is behind the Hiddleston army.

    @Smars: I missed a local comic shop show at a nearby mall to do SPX!! And I just did a college zine fair yesterday. The zine fair was way more laid back, business was the same as SPX, and the table was only $10.

    @Ross: I'm pretty sure Storm was missing from these episodes. Same with Cyclops, Jubes, and Jean Grey.

    @Heather: Are you going to NYCC? We should all kick it together there!!

  10. 8 Heather Nunnelly

    I am going to NYCC! Yes! We should all hang out together again.

    Dang I feel like I totes missed out on this cool show! I don't know how well I'd fit in at an indie show like this... I mean I like small pres and all but I also like a lot of digital comics and manga, which I have the impression don't go over well at these shows.

    Anyways hey Fawn it was cool to hear your voice, now I have a voice to put to all your tweets.

    That god damn Magneto gif was running in the background while I toned this weeks Dedford page and listened. ARRRRRG!!!

    @Heather: Yeeesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

    @Jessi: Then I guess we'll just have to have Fawn back again soon, by popular demand!!!

    @Brandon: I've read a number of SPX 2012 recaps that mentioned some division between the art comics crowd and the webcomics crowd at the show. Honestly, I didn't sense any animosity between styles of comics. But I'm also kind of oblivious to stuff like that.

    SPX is definitely more of an art comics show, that's for sure. But I think everyone was equally welcome.

    Frankly, I've never been to a comics show that felt like it embraced digital work. I know of a few webcomics conventions, but they're set up kinda weird in terms of registration and pricing and location. And anime shows are cool but the focus feels like it's on cosplay and dealers, and not on self-publishers. What do you think?

  15. 12 Brandon!

    @Nick: I've noticed that the fans are getting hip to webcomics so I think it's growing! It's tough to keep up with webcomics for me still, but that's mostly cuz I'm so busy making them.

    I have nothing against small press art comic shows, I don't have a lot of experience with them tho. I've also felt a little outcasted by having an "manga" or "anime" look and content, at comic cons in general. I haven't experienced an Anime Con yet...

    I've never heard of any webcomic shows?

    @B: Shows like Intervention and Connecticon began as webcomics conventions and morphed into internet culture conventions. New England Webcomics Weekend ran for a couple of years and folded. And I've found a couple others through my research.

    I love the idea of them and maybe I'd do great there. I guess I'm just really conditioned to think that comics shows are the best place for me (even though I tend to do better at shows that advertise more than just comics).

    I have noticed that superhero comic creators and art comics creators often have a bit of a snobby comicon attitude directed at artists with manga styles, which is absolutely ridiculous if you ask me!

  18. 14 Brandon!

    Maybe we should look into getting a table together at a webcomic or internet culture show? I have a new web series I'm working on so I'll be running two web comics are the same time (YIKES!)

    The manga thing IS ridiculous! Luckily we have dudes like Brandon Graham, Giannis Milonogiannis,Becky Cloonan, and Ross (guilty by association) breaking down that barrier!

    You guys should have Fawn on again sometime!

  19. 15 nick marino

    @B: YEAH!! That'd be sweet. We should definitely split a table at a show like that. Only problem is... I'm planning to move out to LA in December, so that would make our table sharing a little more difficult!!
