John Carter (Feat. Mellow Brown)

$350 million? For this? That's right, this week we're talking the disastrous (both financially an critically) 2012 Disney film, John Carter. Not of Mars, or anything else. His name is his name. 

We're grateful to be joined by the super talented Mellow Brown (Blade Runner: Origins) to get into what exactly went wrong. Was it the red face? The thinly veiled Civil War allegory? The totally confusing plot devices?

We also chat about the importance of Black voices in science fiction. 

Mellow is crushing it right now. Blade Runner Origins from Titan Comics is available wherever you get your books. You can also catch his work on Station 19 on ABC, Calls on Apple+ and American Gods on Starz. Follow Mellow on Twitter @Mellowmarketer and his website at 

As always, you can find us at @white_pod on Twitter and at We'll be back next week with the OG of all this, To Kill a Mockingbird.
