    Robots From Tomorrow podcast

    Keep the sports-buzz going with this week’s episode about the state of sports comics in America! Why don’t we have more (given the popularity of sports in this country), and who’s doing a good job with the titles we do have? What is it about manga that can make cooking and chess into fan-favorite subjects? Is there a difference between sport and competition? How does the influx of comics in the classrooms influence what arenas publishers should be entering if they want to succeed at the sports comics game? All that, plus Mike gives his thoughts on the mood of Philadelphia at recording time, one day before the Eagles’ victory.

    Greg Matiasevich

    Greg Matiasevich has read enough author bios that he should be better at coming up with one for himself, yet surprisingly isn't. However, the years of comic reading his parents said would never pay off obviously have, so we'll cut him some slack on that. He lives in Baltimore, co-hosts (with Mike Romeo) the Robots From Tomorrow podcast, posts on his Tumblr blog, and can be followed on Twitter at @GregMatiasevich.


    Mike Romeo

    Mike Romeo started reading comics when splash pages were king and the proper proportions of a human being meant nothing. Part of him will always feel that way. Now he is one of the voices on Robots From Tomorrow. He lives in Philadelphia with one lady and three cats. Follow him on Twitter at @YeahMikeRomeo!
