Welcome to a very magic themed episode of Canned Air! We are first joined by Richard Rivera of Stabbity Bunny and James Haick of Scout Comics to help us recall some of our favorite fictional magicians in this week’s Retro Roundtable. With so many different types of magic strewn across pop culture, this was a deep well to take from. From Dr. Fate to Mary Poppins, see if we name one of your favorite!
We then turn our attention over to Richard and James and talk about the newly formed relationship between Richard’s Stabbity Bunny comic series with Scout Comics. Stabbity Bunny is a tale of mystery and suspense steeped in horror. Innocence is pitted against a ruthless, cynical evil as Grace must overcome a foe hell-bent on gaining power and revenge. Stabbity, Grace’s toy rabbit, has been with the family for nearly 100 years. Heard over to ScoutComics.com and check out Stability Bunny, as well as a lot of other comics.
Then we welcome magician/ writer Nate Staniforth to the show to talk about his career and new book HERE IS REAL MAGIC: A Magicians Search for Wonder In The Modern World. HERE IS REAL MAGIC is an earnest and heartfelt memoir about rediscovering the importance of wonder in everyday life, from professional magician Nate Staniforth. Filled with humor, wisdom, and a genuine sense of adventure, HERE IS REAL MAGIC is about that single moment of wonder in a magician’s performance—that instant when someone realizes they’re seeing something magical and their eyes go wide—and the journey to find it in our daily lives.
