Versus Ryan Browne creator of God Hates Astronauts

BastardCast-ryanbrowne-SI

This is a special edition of The BastardCast featuring an interview with God Hates Astronauts creator Ryan Browne. The regular, curse filled podcast’o shenanigans version of The BastardCast will come into your life over the weekend, and you will love it like a bear loves porridge and Young MC music. 

Some of the greatest fanbeing/comic series love affairs have been born from the magic of a word of mouth suggestion. That’s how I found God Hates Astronaut, a web-comic that will see a collected print release from Image Comics on October 9th (let your local comic shop know that you want this book NOW).

Weird and wonderfully hysterical, the book details the strange downfall of Star Fighter as he deals with infidelity, a ghost cow, an un-dead pugilist, magic bears, superhero bureaucracy, an asshole cowboy and a massive head.

Created by Ryan Browne (Blast Furnace, The Manhattan Projects) over the course of six years, Browne tells us about the future of God Hates Astronauts, the magic of Reginald VelJohnson (the cop from Die Hard and Family Matters, c’mon people…) and creating GHA’s world.

We also discuss the copious bonus content in the print edition, whether Browne would want to work for Marvel or DC and the creative cost that comes with such a job, his guest work on The Manhattan Projects, the long process from concept to web comic to print.

All that and more on the latest BastardCast Interview.

 

Versus Zombie College Hijinks and the Mystery of the Fox

BastardCast-412-Title


This time on The BastardCast, Jason and Jeremy pull a 180 after watching the new RoboCop trailer, warn you about the first ever GTA related virus that didn’t come from banging a pixelated hooker in a car park, and go back to school to learn about zombie stuff and things.

Also on the show: This Week in OMG/Total BS Star Wars News, another DC writer leaves the nest (and shits in it too), Will Smith gets ready to have a meeting in an airport Ramada about returning to his signature role (WILD WILD WILD WESTER here we come!), and Transformers 4 gets a title that we don’t care about (look forward to our 180 on The Dinobot Holocaust in a future episode.)

More? We can not deny you the news about an internet addiction treatment center (step one is admitting that you have a problem, step two is joining Google +), our sparkling repartee about the next iteration of the Bat suit, or our questions about whether Elizabeth Berkely (Showgirls & Saved by the Bell… we’re just helping you so you don’t have to use IMDB) can successfully undulate on dry land without the aid of Kyle MacLachlan’s magical unicorn penis on Dancing with the Stars?

By the way, If you have to ask, yes, this next story is readymade to make you scratch your head to the point where it leaves scar tissue: a mail room worker tried to take her career to higher ground by claiming to know the lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Chris Nolan, assuming that Hollywood would give it away… now.

Oh, and here is the that BatFleck Batsuit they talked about… see? They posted the link. GO TEAM!

What the Fox Say? He say re-subscribe to the show on iTunes, there may be a glitch in the system that is conspiring to keep you away from us! He also says that the half life of a meme is less than the amount of time that it takes to.. what were we talking about?

All that and Jeremy Argh Hudson on the lightness of beering during the autumnal treat that is, The BastardCast!candy-drunk
