RETCON # 7: Strange ways with Dave Baker


On this week’s episode we have Dave Baker, the co founder of Mod Myth Press. We talk about his new online comic Strange Ways and his constant nose bleeds. Your host Henry Barajas joined by Eric Schock, Benn & Paul “The Game Guys”, Razor the host of The Lair, Karl Savage, and Kevin Thurman the marketing director of Sequart have a round table discussion about this week’s comic book news & reviews.


Piracy. It’s just plain stealing.

It’s important to buy records.


A lot depends on the sale of a record.   Album sales have a huge consequence things like touring, merchandise, and the band itself.  I think people forget that there is a huge corporate business that pays for this album, and  they want their money back.

I know most of you have jobs.  What if everyone was doing your job for free?  Then your out of a job.

I’m not being entirely fair with this whole piracy thing.  Nothing is definite, there is a polar positive side to stealing from people.  Piracy gains more readers and listeners.  One of my favorite writers Neil Gahman had some interesting things to say about piracy:

“Then I started to notice that two things that seemed much more significant. One of which was that places where I was being pirated — particularly Russia (where people were translating my stuff into Russian and spreading it out into the world) I was selling more and more books. People were discovering me through being pirated. And then they were going out and buying the real books, and when a new book would come out in Russia it would sell more and more copies.”

Do something noble and buy album, book, comic book, movie that was independently made.  Ask your retailer or friends online whats good.  What are your thoughts?  Message me.


Hello folks,
