Image Comics & Childhood Memories

In words of Sophia Petrillo (Golden Girls if you don’t know)… Picture it Ojai, California, 1993. I was 10 years old at the time and just starting to really get into comics. I was really into DC and had a nice collection going with the help from my Father. There was a comic book store in town, sadly for the life of me I can not remember the name of it. I just remember it was a hole in the wall , next to a army surplus store in a back ally behind a restate office. I remember going there for a couple of years as it was my first comic shop I have ever been to. I think it was open for about 5 years before he had to move his shop. Do to drama (A story for another time) and he tried to run the business out of his garage. That didn’t work to good and the doors was shut.

61lU8QutzqLBut that not the story I want to tell here. I was starting to get into Marvel when one of my friends show me these trading cards he had. These were the Marvel Universe Series 4 Base set. If you collect all of them you were able to put them together to make one full picture. Of course I remember doing a bunch of yard work to earn enough money to go buy a box set. Back then it was $60.00 and I managed to make a little over 80 dollars. From there I got my box set and then found a number of comics  like X-Force, Jim Lee’s X-Men, Spider-Man, Robocop vs Terminator. There was Batman vs The Predator series I picked up as well, but only got two copies in and stop. It didn’t hold my interest as well.

But I remember that summer there was this buzz going around about a new comic company called Image Comics. Being that young at the time, I didn’t really understand what the big deal was. One of my neighbor’s kids use to come over a lot and one day he asked if I wanted to see his comic collection. Not really thinking much about it I went on. Because we were trading and talking shop about comics…

While we were walking to his house he was talking about Image Comics and a artist name Todd McFarland. He was completely enamored with Todd’s work and wouldn’t stop talking about it. I knew of Todd because of his work on Spirder-Man and Venom. So I could only imagine what this Spawn would look like. I was wrong… What I had pictured in my head was completely wrong and was not ready for the world of Spawn.

SpawnWe get to his room and in his closet he had a number of shelves label with what comic go where and by artist. It was amazing…. He pulled out the an issues of Spawn to see if I would even like it. All black with big bold red letters spelling “SPAWN”. Behind that was this monster or demon looking thing with teeth all over the place and these red bug like eyes. Two big horns or tusks if you will and all the slime and that was it.. As I opened the comic I was blown away by it. I had never seem anything like this before. Nor read anything like this before. I knew my Mom would NOT let me have these at the house or over all. But I knew my Dad was more open about things like that hahaha. I must have read it 5 times while I was at my neighbor’s house. From there he introduced me to Young Blood, Savage Dragon, WildC.A.T.s…. I was in nerdy heaven.. Before I left, my neighbor gave me the Spawn issue number #4 with the Violator on the cover. Wanted nothing in return, he had doubles anyways.

Thanks to him He started a obsession that will continue well into my adult years. My Father was hooked by Spawn, he really fell in love with Jim Lee’s art style. So WildC.A.T.s. and Gen13 (Scott Campbell) was his favorites by far. Through out high school I would copy McFarland art work over and over. Trying to have a better understanding on how to draw. While my Father trained me with the classics of Tex Avery and Chuck Jones style of art. McFarland really kicked open the door to whole new world.

As a kid this was an exciting time and realizing now what was going on shocked me. On Amazon there is a Documentary called “The Image Revolution”.

 In 1992, Marvel Comics was the number-one publisher of comic books in the world, largely due to its dynamic artwork. But as a response to what was believed to be years of mistreatment toward creative talent by the industry’s leading publishers, a small – but influential – group of artists left Marvel Comics at the height of its popularity to form their own company, Image Comics.

In one of my podcast we were talking about some new things we have watched and would share them. Chris Lockhart told us about this Documentary. He was not wrong at all! This brought back some many memories watching this movie. It was interesting to see what was really going on behind the scenes  and not just rumors around the comic shop. I’m happy to be around when that happened, because that change the way comic were forever really.

One of the main reason why I’m writing about this now, was because I was to be on a podcast talking about Image Comics. Sadly I was not able to make that show. I really want to do that one too.. But in the end I think is the best way to make it up. Here is the link to the podcast is you would like to give it a play:

A New Podcast Is Coming

Before I explain the new podcast that is about when the launch date is about to happen. I must share a bit of sad news about Geek Fallout’s end. Earlier this month the original owners/creators of Geek Fallout made the move and ended the podcast.

“Me(Mike King) and Richard Rehder are hanging up the Geek Fallout network. My first podcast was with them and still exists, with a new name, Tech Chatr, on the Chatr Nexus. If you don’t like tech talk podcasts, we will have other kinds of shows in the near future so stay tuned. And be sure to like that page and send in stuff you would like us to review, or if you would like to guest on our shows. Can’t wait to hear from you all

I’ve been doing Geek Fallout for a number of years and it was also my first introduction to podcasting as a whole. Because of this podcast I went on to do a number of shows, like: Trek1701, Random Nerdness, Geek Fallout Top 5, Eclectic Mayhem Podcast, Geek Fallout Comic Book Eps. While it is a sad time, it does gives us a change to start anew.

So with this clean slate, Chris Lockhart and I are now starting up a new podcast called The Pop Culture Pub. This is Chris’s brain child and asked if I would be his new co-host for the show! Together we’re working to bring something new to the table and bring in some past podcasting friends. The current link for the show is on Podbean (The Pop Culture Pub ) and there is a iTunes profile being made at the moment. I’ll post that here soon! There is current a few shows posted, that were made by Chris Lockhart explaining the new show and the over all idea behind it.

Geek Fallout: The Return!!……… Again

Thats right! Geek Fallout is back yet again for another reboot. What is this now, genertion 4, or are we at 5 now?

This episode we have three members from different generations of the show to usher in its resurrection and chat about our favorite of 2018 so far before going into some POST Infinity War PRE Antman and Wasp discussion on the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Geek Fallout. The Return. Again
