Listen to Gobbledygeek Episode 465 – “FCF: Six-Gun Gorilla”

Art from Six-Gun Gorilla (2013) by Jeff Stokely & Andre May

Gobbledygeek episode 465, “FCF: Six-Gun Gorilla,” is available for listening or download right here, on Spotify, and on Apple Podcasts.

Sometimes a gorilla is just a gorilla. Sometimes, though, that gorilla–righteously bearing arms though he may be–is a gateway to a story about the power and fluidity of narrative. For this month’s Four-Color Flashback, Paul and Arlo go ape for Si Spurrier and Jeff Stokely’s Six-Gun Gorilla, a sci-fi Western published by BOOM! Studios in 2013. The boys discuss Stokely’s glorious, hyper-exaggerated art; how the book’s entertainment conglomerate dystopia feels like a logical extension of our present; the way Spurrier weaves various pulp genres throughout his story; and more. Plus, Paul got sick in Gatlinburg again and Arlo admits he was wrong about Dune.

NEXT: Gobbledygeek will return.
