Episode 69: Mrs. Shazam with Riley Rossmo



Welcome to another installment of The Hour Cosmic, your favorite comics game show! This week, our returning guest is "Drumhellar" co-writer and artist, Riley Rossmo!


On this week’s show, among other things, we discuss:

- Drugs!
- The magic allure of the never materialized "Flash: Speed Force" series!
- Greek mythological pronunciations!

Let's meet our guest, shall we?



Riley Rossmo is a Canadian treasure, "Drumheller" for Image and just wrapped up "Curse" for Boom! Riley has done a number of Image series ("Bedlam," "Green Wake," "Dia De Los Muertos," "Cowboy Ninja Viking," "Proof," "Rebel Blood"), and recently did both an installment of DC's Digital "Adventure of Superman" title and a brief run on Valiant's "Harbinger." His other credits include an 8-issue run on Marvel's "Daken: Dark Wolverine," and various covers and fill in spots for IDW and Image books. You can follow him on Twitter (@rileyrossmo1) or visit his website for a nice gallery of his prior work.

As always, your hosts are:

Brian Salvatore – New Jerseyan, New York Mets enthusiast, host of “Input/Output,” a music podcast, and occasional blogger/freelance writer. He has never met a dog he didn’t like (even that one that bit his leg when he was 10), and has baked better bread than he ever thought possible.

Chad Bowers – South Carolinian, GI Joe enthusiast, co-writer of “Subatomic Party Girls" “Down Set Fight,” and “Awesome Hospital” with Chris Sims, and writer of “Monster Plus.” He teaches us cool expressions like “Oh, snakes!” and has a lot of opinions about barbeque.

Matthew Meylikhov – Bostonian, cat and beard enthusiast, co-writer of “Detective Space Cat” with Colin Bell, writer of “Morning Glories Babies,” "Morning Glories Academy Study Hall" (both backmatter for the Image Comics series "Morning Glories") and “Control,” and letterer extraordinaire. He reads more comics than anyone on the planet, and has sworn off White Castle for life.
