Into It 84: Blade with Stella Cheeks

Stella Cheeks, co-host of Not Your Demographic, is on the show to talk about all three Blade movies. We talk about whether or not this vampire hunter manages to be as cool as the vampires, but we know he's at least cooler than Donal Logue, Triple H, and those ugly guys with the Alien tongues.

Into It 64: The Warriors with Elana Levin

Podcaster and longtime New Yorker Elana Levin is here to talk about the 1979 semi-sci fi classic street gang film, The Warriors. NYC geography as plot element, the importance of branding to street warfare, the real New York versus the mythical/cinematic New York, and what people miss about costuming (not just in this film, but in comics too).

We also talked about the idea of a Warriors comic, and Elana wants me to add Ronald Wimberly as a candidate for writer/artist, which I totally agree with.

Into It 58: Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope with Lauren Moran

Illustrator and designer Lauren Moran joins in for the first of a three-part series on the original Star Wars trilogy. Luke is whiney without being unbearable, Han is drunk but not too drunk to drive, and Leia is the best. Just, like, the best. Droids, jawas, cantina aliens, and that feeling when all you want to do is go to Tosche Station to pick up some power converters.
