Hosted by Kris Bather and Mladen Luketin from Western Australia, ES is a weekly podcast filled with news, reviews and pop culture shenanigans. Kris (loyal superhero fan) and Mladen (manga, anime and indie defender) chat about their varying, and occasional overlapping, interests in the wonderful world of sequential art.

Episode Eighteen-Xenozoic, Marineman and Definitions

66 mins. Now old enough to vote, here’s our 18th podcast! We discuss the new all ages book Marineman, the visually striking Batwoman, a funny manga about an aspiring artist and talk about the terminology of comic books and graphic novels.

1:05 NEWS

The continuing woes of the Spider-Man musical after it’s mixed debut performance, the death of director Irvin Kershner, Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons working together on a secret project.


I’ll Give It My All…Tomorrow by Shunji Aono, Secret Origin doco on the history of DC Comics, early vertigo one-shot Mercy, new all-ages series Marineman by Ian Churchill, Batwoman #0 by J.H Williams III (otherwise knwon as J.H Williams the 3rd), Flesk Publications’ new collection of Xenozoic tales by Mark Schultz and Arnie’s first film Hercules in New York.


We attempt to define the difference in terminology between comics and graphic novels. Mladen and I have different thoughts on just what term should be used for what type of sequential art. Is it related to format? Theme? Who knows? We do, or so we think. Let the lively debate begin!
