Chicago ComicCon Unlimited

I drop in on Comics Unlimited to see how Matt Hawes enjoyed his trip to Chicago. Of course we go on for more time than is really necessary about stuff that no one else finds interesting, but I think we saved all the juicy bits for the podcast. Matt tries to hit the Chicago Con every year, but he does it from a dual standpoint, not only as a comics enthusiast and fanboy, but also as the owner of a retail store, and his perspective of this event is slightly different. Matt Billman of Living With Zombies (.net) snuck out the door just as I turned on the microphone, so we don’t get to hear from him, but you’ll find a link to his site in the post anyway. Take that, Billman!

Violent Chick-Lit

If you’ve missed the media hype surrounding Suzanne Collins’ dystopian sci-fi trilogy “The Hunger Games”, then you may in fact consider yourself fortunate. The guys and I sit around the round table and break down the trilogy of novels, including spoiling the plot and determining that the target audience is in fact – chicks. You’ll get plenty of warning and the magic of podcasting so that you can actually read the books if you still desire to do so. If not, check out the full scoop on this violently dystopian sci-fi beststeller. Also, head over to the Two-Fisted Blogger and check out my review on his site, as well as other articles about dude-lit.

Changing Comic Book Habits

I take my microphone and kids to the park for a bear-free picnic. While they hopefully wear themselves out on the equipment, I talk about the way my comic book habits are changing.  I’m buying fewer monthly titles, and reading more trades from the library, digitizing my collection, and delving into goldenage public domain archives.  Check out the links, and don’t forget to help the Jesus Geek Podcast for Water!

Lion’s Gate Marvels

Marvel Comics has really dominated the animated movie landscape for the past three years or so.  I take the time to look at the recent offerings from Lion’s Gate and break down the subtext of my favorite films.  They’re all good stuff, and I recommend any of them.  This week introduces a few new things, including the Fanboyarama section of the Amazon store, and the podsafe album of the week.  This week, we’re doing Marvel Heroes in animation, and the music selection is “Manifestations” by Synaecide.  Check it out in the tabber box!

Ambush at Evil Con

So, I had like two days warning when I found out there was an anime con at the local library. I grabbed my mic, ambushed a few people, and generally had a great time. Here’s what happened!

Pull and Hold

Following a technically challenged chat with the Snarky Avenger, I’m on about comic books.  We revisit Rann Thanagar Holy War, dog on Final Crisis a bit, and check on the status of my pull and hold file.  I’m reading Trinity, Booster Gold, and Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the Eighth Grade.  What are you reading?  What am I missing?  I need to know!
