The Bleed 2.6 : Reading Archer & Armstrong With Omar Spahi And Siike Donnelly

By Joseph Kyle Schmidt and Chase Magnett

The Bleed is a weekly podcast by Bleeding Cool contributors Joe Schmidt and Sam Morse. The podcast consists of the latest news in comics, creator interviews, and a weekly book club discussion. Unfortunately, Sam could not make this episode but when he's replaced by someone as awesome as Chase Magnett, we can hardly complain.

The OSSM Comics crew returns to the podcast and this time Omar Spahi is joined by EIC Siike Donnelly for this week's show! It's a grand ole' time, laced with condescending half-truths and backhanded compliments that only your best friends can provide!

Aside from running OSSM Comics, Omar is also writing their current title Separators, the follow up to their hit series Xenoglyphs. Siike is also the writer of the series Monomyth, also from OSSM Comics.

We're all big fans of the relaunched Valiant Comics and we decided to discuss one of their best titles, Archer & Armstrong by Fred Van LenteClayton HenryMatt Milla and Dave Lanphear. Who doesn't love an immortal bum with more holes in his memory than his underpants, his young and naive sidekick raised by zealots and trained to kill, on a crusade against an unholy union of secret societies?! (Don't say you, because that means no one likes you.)

You can download us if you're on the go here, and iTunes users can subscribe to the podcast.

Regular co-host Sam Morse will return next week for our in-depth discussion with Van Jensen and Jose Pimenta's beautiful, crowd-funded graphic novel, The Leg! Yell at us with the tweeters at #theBleedBC or email your thoughtful hatespeech to!
