Part of my blog silence has been due to a long-overdue overhaul of the Pop Sequentialism website–which is still in process, but should be done before the New Year. We'll also be moving the blog over to tumblr which will be a seamless transfer, resulting in no loss of past posts and much easier share and subscriber capability.
The podcast started as a suggestion from my old friend Gaston Dominguez, proprietor of Meltdown Comics, whose prior partnership with Nerdist helped yield the weekly comedy show Nerdmelt. Our friendship goes back to 1991, when we were co-workers at Fantastic Store Comics (RIP) on Highland, which was a filming location for the Quentin Tarantino scripted True Romance.

The timing couldn't have been better. Mad Max: Fury Road, based on Brendan's screenplay had just opened in theaters, and continues to get rave reviews from critics, fans and industry professionals alike. From Freakwave to Fury Road, Brendan McCarthy has been on the cutting edge of comics, art, and entertainment since punk rock was in diapers. On Episode #01 of Pod Sequentialism, we talk about Mad Max, Vertigo, and Thatcher's England–and how thalidomide babies influenced the zeitgeist.
