Listen up, friends. Despite the movie theaters being closed, there is still a #1 movie around the world right now – Extraction on Netflix. And if you pay attention to the credits, you will see that this film is based on the Ciudad graphic novel done by friend-of-the-show Ande Parks.
For the long-time listeners, you are well aware of Ande Parks by now. As a fixture in the Kansas City comic book scene and a wearer of hats, Ande joined us back on Episode 37 when Ciudad was first published. In the five years since that recording, Ciudad was optioned, went through a few script revisions and title changes, and debuted at the end of April as Extraction starring one of those Chris guys from the Marvel movies.
Ande has a print for sale of Extraction’s main character Tyler Rake for sale over at his website. Be sure to pick up one (or two or three…)
Also, we turn our attention to creator Neal Adams for our Pick 3 choices. With a career starting in the early 1960s, we have a lot of books to choose from Adams’ credit list.
Finally, we check in on our reading progress for the #My500ComicGoal challenge.
