The Bleed Episode 13: Reading Pluto Vol. 1 With The Fuse's Antony Johnston

By Joseph Kyle Schmidt

The Bleed is a weekly book club by Bleeding Cool contributors Joseph Schmidt and Sam Morse. The group meets Wednesdays on Google Hangout to discuss news, the latest comics, creator interviews and the pick of the week.

It's our last episode of the year before we take a break for the holidays and we're going out with a bang. The prolific Antony Johnston joined us to discuss his work on The Fuse, Wasteland, The Courtyard, and many more gems from his expansive portfolio.

This week we're reading Sam's pick and our first manga entry in the book club, Pluto vol. 1 by Naomi Urasawa, based on the Astro Boy works by Osamu Tezuka.


You can download us if you're on the go here or take a listen below. We're looking to get listed on the iTunes directory and making it as easy as possible for you to stay updated with all of our latest ramblings. Look forward to that soon!


We will be back in the new year with more insight from some of kick-ass people in and around the industry. Any suggestions for guests or reading material? Send them to or #thebleedbc!
