It's the eve of the release of Thor: Ragnarok and Grown Ass Men had to chime in. We're both huge Thor fans so we are using this grand occasion to discuss the very first Thor stories from Journey Into Mystery, lesser known artist Al Hartley, and why we think Thor is so cool. It's a good one, don't miss it!

October 05, 2017 02:04 PM PDT
In this episode, Grown Ass Men take a diversion from their regular comic book culture topics to discuss one of our favorite bands, the incomparable Steely Dan. With the passing of Walter Becker, both of us were compelled to discuss him and Steely Dan as we are both gigantic fans. Going back to the 70's, Steely Dan produced some of the most unique, satisfying music and we've both been obsessed with them ever since. Take a listen!
And also take a listen to Doug Bost's radio play "The Dan" which can be found here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwGwXlNzZ_8

September 07, 2017 06:21 AM PDT
Back in August, Grown Ass Men had the great opportunity to visit the Society of Illustrators in NYC (https://www.societyillustrators.org) for the Spiderman original art exhibit. The private collection focused on John Romita Sr's incredible art but there were also gems by Steve Ditko, Gil Kane, Ross Andru and other well known artists. We brought honorary GAM Sam Mastandrea along and like proper comic geeks we had a great time checking out the art we know and love so well. Check out Doug's interview with the Society of Illustrators social media and marketing coordinator Jason Goodfriend and we introduce our new game show Verbatim! Who said it? Was it Trump or one of comic books worst villains!?
Listen and find out!

In the DC universe, Wonder Woman is one of our greatest heroes.

Ever wonder what a comic book inker really does? We did, so Grown Ass Men asked the best in the business, Klaus Janson, to share his thoughts on the subject! This is Part II of our interview with Klaus, and listen for the special tour we got of his studio! Check it out, true believers!
Original music by Adam Bernstein.Ep. 48: Klaus Janson Interview (Part I)
May 18, 2017 05:36 PM PDT
When you think of the most influential comic creators of the last 50 years, it's inevitable that Klaus Janson's name will come up. His work on Daredevil, and The Dark Knight which he created with Frank Miller, changed the industry. Klaus has worked on almost every major Marvel and DC character and has inked many of the greatest pencillers in comics history.
Grown Ass Men were lucky enough to be invited into his home studio where we chatted about many topics, enough for two episodes. In this first one, we discuss his work with Frank Miller, his new series Sacred Creatures with Pablo Raimondi, and how he learned English differently from you and I.
Writer Doug Bost and musician Adam Bernstein discuss the things that grown men shouldn’t care about -- but these guys do. What’s on the table? Only fun stuff. Episodes focus on all aspects of the comic book universe, from the warehouse of a professional comic book hoarder to interviews with some of the greatest comics creators alive -- Neal Adams, Klaus Jansen, Chris Claremont, and more. With frequent guests, Doug and Adam also cover movies, music, classic TV, and important topics like, “What musical style do you associate with James T Kirk?” (The answer, of course, is Wagner.) And the kicker: Original music by Adam Bernstein in each episode.
