Comics You Can Dance To #15: Angering Superhero Fans with Faith Erin Hicks

A column article, Comics You Can Dance To by: Danny Djeljosevic

Comics You Can Dance To is Comics Bulletin's official podcast!

Hosted by Nathaniel MacDonald and Danny Djeljosevic (that's me) and supported by various jokers and guests, Comics You Can Dance To is devoted to discussing cool comics, pop culture nonsense and hopefully introducing you to some awesome music along the way.

This week we're talking to Faith Erin Hicks, creator of the recent graphic novel Friends with Boys and webcomics like Demonology 101, Superhero Girl and Ice. She took some time off from inking her newest (upcoming) graphic novel to talk to us about her craft, The Hunger Games, comics for young adults and just what exactly we want out of X-Men comics. Good times!

Sorry this is coming out so late after our last episode. There have been scheduling episodes and some real frustrating technical difficulties. We ended up losing all our intro and outro material and had to re-record, for one thing. Nevertheless, we'll try even harder to get this out more consistently.

Comics You Can Drink To

We invented a drinking came for the podcast! MAD PROPS to Niel Jacoby for coming up with the best possible name for it.

If you need to be drunk to listen to us (hey, I'm not judging), drink every time:

  • Nate or Danny forgets the name of something
  • Nate gets the name of something wrong
  • Danny promises to lend Nate a copy of something Nate hasn't read
  • There's an interminable lull, followed by awkward laughter
  • Nate and Danny get distracted by something happening outside
  • Someone refers to another podcast
  • Danny cannot describe why he likes a comic
  • Danny spells out his name in a singsong fashion

Finish your drink:

  • Whenever Nate and Danny do the time paradox joke and bring attention to the fact that they record the podcast out of order
