Gobbledygeek episode 236, “Bone: Vol. IV – The Dragonslayer (feat. Greg Sahadachny),” is available for listening or download right here, and on iTunes here.
We got th’ gitchy feelin’, which can only mean one thing…it’s time for another Four-Color Flashback installment exploring the world of Jeff Smith’s Bone. Once again, Greg Sahadachny of The Debatable Podcast and All the Pieces Matter joins Paul and AJ to discuss Bone: Vol IV – The Dragonslayer. The series now has both feet in the “epic fantasy” realm, so the gang discusses how the expository infodumps work, how Smith maintains his sense of humor amid the darkness, Phoney’s major heel turn, and whether or not you should be reading this thing in color or black-and-white.
Next: while Paul and AJ are gone fishin’, they’ve discovered a “lost” Miyazaki Month episode! They’ll discuss the only two Miyazaki features they didn’t get to in April, 1979’s The Castle of Cagliostro and 2008’s Ponyo.
