The Sexy Girls Podcast Episode 4: Al Rio

Caitlin Fairchild

No one ever drew Fairchild better.

Tonight, in honor of our fallen hero Al Rio, we present a very somber edition of the Sexy Girls podcast, now officially christened a spin-off of Animation Aficionados. On this very special episode, we are joined by comic artists Pablo Praino and Aisaku as we talk about the Al Rio as well as many other “good girl” comic artists.

As someone who was inspired by Al Rio, I was shocked to hear of his death. He was and always will be one of my favorite comic artists. I think I speak for everyone on the show when I say that we will miss Al Rio.

This is a fairly short episode, so after the mid-show commercial break, you’ll get to hear some bonus audio that we recorded with Pablo Praino.

Topics Covered:
The secret of every good girl artist: Frederick’s Of Hollywood
Exposure – It’s like Dirty Pair with nuns.
“Wait a minute! That’s not J. Scott Campbell!!!”
Fronk Cho’s mom
We love Amanda Conner
Adam Warren, Adam Hughes, and Ed Benes

Bonus Content:
More stiff with Pablo
Dragonball is silly
His name is PAIN!!!!
The Crapman

Evil Mary Marvel

I'll take the Mary Marvel on the right. Thank you.


It's like Dirty Pair...without all the genocide...and with nuns.

Self portrait of Al Rio

Being from Brazil, this working environment is far from being inaccurate.

Red Sonja

Impenetrable armor, for sure.

Wonder Woman vs Wonder Woman

Yep, that's how we felt this time last year. Thanks, Al!

  1. This was a good one. I’ll have to check up on Rio to see if I’ve seen his work before. The only artist I recognize is Adam Warren, been reading his Empowered comic, very good stuff. I’d love to see this Dirty Pair version you guys keep talking about.

    • I’d also like to add with that Naruto bit, was that Pain brought all the people who died in Naruto’s village back to life after he talked him down. When you compare it to when Granny Chiyo gave her life to bring back Gaara, it makes it seem cheap by comparison. I’d read this manga over Bleach personally, but Bleach is there to look pretty not much story to go with and I have no problem with that. Like I said before, One Piece beats all that.
