EP 101 : Pluto Vol 1

The boys answer some emails.

First up is Phil from Kirkland that wants some answers to

How does Dad read comics?
Why are pedophiles and deer running on golf courses always mentioned?
Does Dad watch comic book TV shows? 
Phil Also recommends reading Gotham Central.

Next email is Shawn host of Just One of the Guys Podcast and co-host of Parallel Lines Podcast..  

Shawn makes Dad’s day by describing Dad as both a renaissance man and including his geographic location.

Patrick and Dad discuss Pluto vol 1  and the conventions shared in and differences in Manga and Western style comics.

Dad loves the book and the use of sound effects including musical notes to paint the larger picture,

Patrick blathers about Shinto beliefs and the juxtaposition of Japanese culture in terms of nature and technology.

Dad is insulted when Patrick explains sequential art.

Dad never watched the Jetsons.

Patrick and Dad agree the North 2 and blind composer story in the middle of the book helps frame the entire narrative.

Patrick gets upset with Dad when he begins the randomly jump through the story.   Dad gets some suggestions on how to improve his note taking by maybe adding footnotes including page and issue numbers.

Dad makes promise of bringing a cake no matter how much of a health nut his son may be for treats next week.
