So here we have the 4th conversation with my friend Ron Wimberly. We talk about Ta-Nehisi Coates’ new book Between The World and Me. We also talk about how the people co-opt slang using the phrase “Basic Bitch”. We then talk about the dissemination of art and music in American society along with the comics industry. We focus on “blerd” and geek culture and if we feel we fit into it all along with just life and making work. I hope you enjoy.
This episode is with rising star Ramon Villalobos currently artist on the Marvel Secret Wars title E for Extinction. This episode was recorded in July a little before San Diego Comic Con. In this we talk about Yeezys, growing up as an Mexican American, representation in comics and media, pop culture influences, attitudes in doing comic art, Grant Morrison’s Batman and New Gods and of course rap music.
This is the Longboxes on 22s episode. Here Sean (Causley) and I talk about how we feel about the Marvel Hip Hop covers. Then we just talk about music. Enjoy.
