DragonCon 2016 is over but the fun hasn't ended. I was fortunate enough to be on a bunch (12 in all plus a few I got pulled up on) of the panels on the American Sci-Fi Classics track this year and while not all of them have to do with comics some of them did. One of those was the Watchmen: 30 Years, 35 Minutes Ago, which took place on September 5, 2016. This was a fantastic conversation where we talked about Alan Moore as a writer, the themes of the story, the amazing art by Dave Gibbons and we even touch on the prequels that were a published a few years back.
We also take a few shots at the Zach Synder movie.
If you liked what you heard on this panel and want to check out the various podcasts my fellow panelists host they are...
- Gary Mitchel - (yes, that is his real name) is one of the hosts of the RevNews and RevCast shows over at RevolutionsSF.
- The Rad Ranger - host of the Rad Ranger Radical Radcast and also appears on the Needless Things Podcast from time to time.
- Will Price - Doesn't host anything but you can find him on Facebook.
- Kevin Eldridge - is on the Flopcast.
I do apologize for the sometimes spotty audio. I recorded this with my phone and sometimes it was hard to hear people but I think you can get the gist of what was said.
I also apologize for not getting the name of the young lady in the Silk Spectre costume. She was very nice and even posed for a picture with us.
Thanks again to Gary Mitchel and Joe Crowe for putting up with me again this year.
