Show Notes:
Welcome to a special episode of Wildstorm Addiction! Our resident Wildstorm experts Joe David Soliz & Benjamin Murphy give an interview with the current inker on Grifter, Dave Beaty. We chat with about the rise and fall of this Wildstorm character in the new DCU 52.

00:00:36  – Ben welcomes everyone to a special episode #41.5 and welcomes Dave to the podcast. We apologize for the audio quality on this interview, this was our first attempt spanning three different time zones(probably not true) and my bandwidth couldn’t quite keep up(definitely true!) and Dave seemed to have some background his in his microphone. Alas, there is good information to be gleaned from this worthy artist and the show must go on!

Dave Beaty Inks00:01:32  – Joe gets it started by asking Dave how he broke into the industry as an inker after having seen some overlap and confusion about Scott Beaty on the internet for some of the main comic book databases.

00:05:16 – Ben wonders how hard is it to transition between pencilers on the same book.

00:08:09 – Ben asks Dave to get a bit more specific by explaining some of the tools he used and more of the process with the inking step in the production.

Dave Beaty Inks00:15:39 – Joe wonders what Rob leaving may have done to the fate of the title being cancelled. He also wonders with his absence did DC make a conscience effort to downplay some of the Wildstorm introduction into the new DCU 52 such as Voodoo’s cancellation, Zealot’s quick disappearance, very small cameo’s of Pike, change in direction for Team 7, and the quick dismissal of the Daemonite presence from the DCU after such an obvious build-up in major titles through-out the first year.

00:23:28 – Ben like to discuss the ever closing distance between creators and fans with the proliferation of social media beyond the simple forum. He wants to know Dave’s thoughts on where this relationship will head in the future of comics.

00:28:53 – Always liking to go out on a light note we checked out the honors and achievements on your website www.davebeaty.com. We want to know…are you in fact a ninja?

00:40:51 – Joe gives a shout out to Chris Striker, of the TheAuthority.ws and Stormwatch.ws websites. Remember to visit The Higher Authority’s message boards Clark’s Bar to continue the Wildstorm integration discussions among long time Wildstorm fans at theauthority.ws. Be sure to check out our friends of the show, the Image Addiction podcast as they cover new releases from Image Comics and the Only the Valiant podcast as they cover the re-launching of Valiant Comics which current titles include X-O Manowar, Harbinger, Bloodshot, Archer & Armstrong, and Shadowman.

Show Notes:
Welcome to another episode of Wildstorm Addiction! Our resident Wildstorm experts Joe David Soliz & Benjamin Murphy review the new DCU versions of Stormwatch #3, Voodoo #3 and Grifter #3. As well as a follow-up interview by Joe with Grifter writer Nathan Edmondson at Wizard World Austin.

00:00:34  – Ben welcomes everyone to episode #28 and gives his spoiler alerts warning. Remember, all written reviews on the website are spoiler free and usually get posted within a day of print release.

00:01:20  – Ben gives some Wildstorm related news as it pertains to the current books in the DCU. February 2012 we will see the first crossover of the 3 Wildstorm titles as the Daemonites begin to play a bigger role in the DCU. And sadly Ron Marz is off of the Voodoo title after issue #4 and is being replaced by writer Josh Williamson. Apparently, Marz turned in a script for #5 (as shown in solicits) but it was rejected and Williamson’s script will be used instead.

00:03:01 – Joe kicks it off first with a follow-up interview with Nathan Edmondson at Wizard World Austin. We get to hear some upcoming highlights for Grifter and his dealings inside the DCU.

00:14:59 – Joe reviews Stormwatch #3. Released on 11/2, written by Paul Cornell with art by Miguel Sepulveda and Al Barrionuevo. Joe starts referring to this as the hidden cover which was not the original cover when first solicited like last months. This month Chris Burnham was the artist for the printed cover. He gives this issue a resounding score of 10 and then explains why he gave it such an incredible rating.

00:22:54 – Ben claps for Joe at what an outstanding job he did on that crazy review. Ben also gives a 10 out 10 on the third issue for Stormwatch.

00:25:06 – Ben reviews Grifter #3. Released on 11/09 and written by Nathan Edmondson, with art and cover by CAFU, sadly his last issue on this title as Scott Clark and Dave Beaty will be taking over for issue #4 next month.

00:33:57 – Joe gives his assessment on Grifter by quoting his favorite line, “This is the face your kind will remember!” He’s pretty bumbed out that CAFU will be leaving the title so soon and thinks that this is not the last time we shall see Max Cash as he himself may now be possessed by a Daemonite!

00:38:19 – Joe reviews the third issue of the alien Voodoo. Released on 11/23, written by Ron Marz with art by Sami Basri and Hendry Prasetya, along with a cover by John Tyler Christopher. This is the first major character cross-over between an old Wildstorm character and a lead DCU character of Green Lantern. Joe is still totally digging Basri’s art with the detail and emotion in each and every character’s facial expressions.

00:46:54 – Ben is also pretty disappointed that Ron Marz is leaving this title so soon. Even though it was an awkward start at first, he’s really getting into this title and can’t believe it’s changing hands so quickly.

00:49:43 – Ben gives an update on other Wildstorm related sighting and tie-ins from the other DCU 52 issue #3’s that have released last month. (I know I say October twice, these released in November!)

  • 11/12 Demon Knights #3 –  Still no sign of the Century Baby (that we know of!), because neither of us were able to flip through it yet.
  • 11/12 Superboy #3 – Fairchild reveals her powers to Superboy at the end of the issue by “hulking out” and also revealing that her choice of lady undergarments pays homage to her original costume (purple and green).
  • 11/23 Teen Titans #3 – No Caitlin sightings in this issue, but next month we may get to see her as Superboy confronts the Titans!

00:53:26 -Ben continues by giving a run-down on the upcoming books and character appearances in the new DCU relaunch. Remember, all these books are available digitally the same day as the print release at the DC section of www.comixology.com

  • For the week of 12/14
  • For the week of 12/28
    • VOODOO #4  (Voodoo is heading torward Metropolis, this could get interesting!)
    • TEEN TITANS #4 (Showdown with Superboy, Caitlin Fairchild appearance?)

00:55:49 – Joe gives a shout out to Chris Striker, of the Higher Authority and Stormwatch.ws websites. Remember to visit The Higher Authority’s message boards Clark’s Bar to continue the Wildstorm integration discussions amongst long time Wildstorm fans at theauthority.ws. DC Wormhole podcast ep. 3 is out at culturalwormhole.com and they’re covering several of the new 52 books.

00:58:03 – Joe also gives the contact details as shown below.
