Episode 110: What’s Happening, Marvel?!

[podcast src=”https://html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5265546/height/45/width/500/theme/standard/autonext/no/thumbnail/yes/autoplay/no/preload/no/no_addthis/no/direction/forward/” height=”45″ width=”500″]

Brandon & Rem invite you to sit in with comic shop owner Jordan Lowe to talk about what is happening with Marvel & the comic world at large!

Poor Marvel has had just a terrible few weeks with PR nightmares such as VP of sales David Gabriel blaming diversity for the lurch in sales.

From there, we ask Jordan’s perspective as a shop owner and comic connoisseur whether the problem is diversity or overall storytelling. Turns out it’s just not that simple!

Finally, we dive into the controversy with artist Ardian Syaf who, in his first issue of Marvel’s X-Men Gold, scrawled in subtle support for an Indonesian Muslim extremist group. As of this recording, Syaf’s fate in Marvel was still unknown, but as of this writing, he has been terminated from Marvel’s roster.

Guest Spotlight: Jordan Lowe is owner/operator of Asylum Comics, a brick-and-mortar comic shop located at 212 Third Street Suite A in Marietta, OH. He is also author of the indie comic about Bigfoot; Bluff Creek. Oh, and did we mention he’s also part of the quadfecta (and our mortal enemy, apparently) that is Ka-Pow! The Pop Cultured Podcast?! This guy must have drive or something!
