Episode 71: New 52 Martha Wayne with Gabo

Welcome to another installment of The Hour Cosmic, your favorite comics game show! This week, our guest is artist of Oni's new "The Life After," Gabo!

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

- The practicality of 103 creators sharing one Eisner!
- How many "Simpsons" comic titles sound like Cure songs!
- The unchanging majesty of Kilowog!

Let's meet our guest, shall we?

Gabo is a Chicago-based artist (real name: Gabriel Bautista), about to launch "The Life After" with writer Joshua Hale Fialkov for Oni and the artist for "Albert the Alien" with writer Trevor Mueller for Thrillbent. He is also an accomplished colorist, having worked on both "The Spirit" and "All-Star Western" for DC, the Eisner-winning anthology "Comic Book Tattoo" for Image, and has penciled pieces in both "Elephantmen" and "Popgun" for Image. He is also the creator of the comics battling site EnterVoid.com. You can find him on Twitter (@galvosaur), on Facebook, or on his website, and he is a part of the BroFu artist collective.

As always, your hosts are:

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.

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.
