Episode 76 - The Dark Knight's Dong Rises with Ryan Alves
When the 2021 Guysner Award winner Nate McDonough asked us to have Providence-based cartoonist and illustrator Ryan Alves on an episode, we knew this was a big favor. Would we set a dangerous precedent by allowing someone to dictate who comes on? Would Ryan Alves meet the high watermark set by past guests? The answer to both questions is yes. If you're a Guysner winner, you get more leeway. And besides, Ryan is great and he would've been on the show anyway. To Nate's credit, he did expedite the process. Again, Guysner. After a few scheduling conflicts, we finally sat down with Ryan to talk about his rapidly growing body of work including Bubblegum Maelstrom and Moustache, why he got into comics, his experience at the Winter Hocking Hills Cartoonist Retreat, and who has the biggest hog in Batman's rogues gallery (it's Bane).  Check out his work at on his website and follow him on Instagram @alvestagram and Twitter @AWE_comics.

Episode 73 - Try Finger, But Hole with Jasper Jubenvill
Even though we said we wouldn't have repeat guests on the main feed, it's only fair to have 2021's Pimp of the Year Jasper Jubenvill come on for a second time to really hash it out for the listeners. We go in-depth about process, his influences, his current love affair with Elden Ring, and why Cam loves WWE2K22 so much. EDITOR'S NOTE: We erroneously referred to Nate McDonough as a Pimp of the Year when in fact he was only the recipient of the Dudes Rock Award. JB will receive 20 lashings from Nate for his transgression and we hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive us. Follow Jasper on Instagram @jasper.jubenvill. He does not have a website yet, so be sure to judge him harshly for that.  Questions? Comments? Suggestions?

Episode 61 - Train Talk with Blake Sims
Clear the tracks because the Gutter Boys train is leaving the station! The boys are back with another interview from the Hocking Hills Cartoonist Retreat and this time it's none other than long time friend of the show Blake "The Uncle King" Sims. Based out of Bowling Green, Kentucky, Blake is a true comics soldier who's been cranking out pages since high school and doesn't show signs of letting up any time soon. His last book, Logor, was one of our top picks from last year and his upcoming book, Sicko Hunter, is shaping up to be another contender for 2021. We talk about his long love for comics, his early influences, and what he's hoping to accomplish in the near future. We also sprinkled in some wrestling talk because of course Blake is also a wrestling fan and it would've been disingenuous to not bring it up. If you want to check out more of Blake's work or stay updated on what he's up to, give him a follow on Twitter and Instagram @blakersims. Questions? Comments? Suggestions?

Episode 58 - Barely Legal with Nate Garcia
You have a collect call from Ligma, do you accept? Of course you do, because it's time for another episode of GUTTER BOYS.
