Released Friday, 1st October 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
This episode has been a long time in the making. Even aside from the hiatus we took after Episode 17, this topic is one we had originally planned to do for Episode 5, however covid lockdown kept us from doing the episode as we'd originally intended, But it's finally here: our episode on horror comic adaptations!

As longtime comic book fans, this is a topic we've been eager to do since the earliest days of our podcast. And we honestly couldn't be happier with how this episode turned out, particularly thanks to our wonderful guests. For the first movie in the episode, Nick chose Wes Craven's adaptation of Swamp Thing, and we were lucky enough to have comic writer Ram V (These Savage Shores, The Many Deaths of Laila Starr and current writer of Swamp Thing) join us to talk about it! For the second movie, Jake chose the first installment of the Blade series from 1998, where we were joined by the fabulous writer Danny Lore (Champions, Queen of Bad Dreams, Lunar Room and an upcoming Blade one-shot)! The third movie in the lineup is Brian Yuzna's adaptation of the rather notorious horror comic Faust: Love of the Damned. And lastly, we were joined by our longtime friend and fellow comic lover Bil White, who chose Guillermo Del Toro's adaptation of Hellboy as the fourth and final movie.

We truly hope you enjoy the episode, and we cannot thank our special guests enough for their time and the wonderful conversations. After you've listened to the episode, please check out their work and websites listed below:
And as always, thanks so much for listening!
