Episode 63. Festivus. For the rest of us.



Download podcast here.

This week, the format is a little different. Simply put: Darin already left us for Christmas vacation and Braeden is left to his own devices. So he airs his grievances in fabulous Festivus fashion - complaining all about the idiots sending death threats to Dan Slott over a comic they haven't even read yet, complaining about all the people who don't buy Saga like it's going out of style every month, and not-really-complaining about how great Remender and Romita's Captain America book is.

Then, we turn the mic in Darin's direction, as he interviews his nephew Brigham all about why he loves superheroes and tells us all about the superhero he created. Finally, we wrap up with some Matthew action, reviewing Giant-Size X-Men. (And stay tuned until the very end for the easter egg of Matthew goodness!)

Breakdown
Grievance: death threats 00:00 - 00:05
Grievance: go buy Saga 00:05 - 00:16
Rave: Captain America still rules 00:16 - 00:21
Darin interviews his nephew Brigham 00:21 - 00:43
Matthew and Jordan talk Giant-Size X-Men 00:43 - 00:48

Have a happy and safe holiday, dear listeners - and happy reading.

Episode 62. We're normal folk.



Download podcast here.

Back together. We missed you guys last week. Chatting this week: Death of the Family - definitive Batman story? Gail Simone and the improper treatment of comic book creators by the big 2. Avengers Assemble and lots of tangents because of it - Hawkeye, comic book cleavage, feng shui shops, how many times Darin has watched The Dark Knight Rises, et cetera. Also: Man of Steel trailer chat with Cassi. We prognosticate the heck out of that thing. Darin talks about how Henry Cavill's beard inspired his own. Ultimate X-Men is pretty great.

Sorry we couldn't do last week. Hopefully won't happen again. (Need to build up the backlog of special episodes, clearly.) Chat here, Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail. Because of the loves. The loves, I say.

Episode 61. Let's go be adults.

Finally, Darin and Braeden got to see each other. It's been like two or three weeks, which is shameful. But we didn't have time to have a full episode, with all the normal stuff we do. We just sat down at the dinner table with Braeden's wife Cassi. And chatted. We talk Thanksgiving, comics, life, the Antelope Lending Library (donate please!), and all sorts of stuff.

How was your Thanksgiving? What did you think of this episode? It was pretty loose in its format, that's for sure. But it was also lots and lots of fun. (Except for the whiny puppy parts.) Talk to us here. Facebook. Twitter. E-mail. You know the score. We love you.
