Comic Issues #201: Star Lord Gotham’s Assassin

This week your favorite Podcasting Duo catch their breath after last week’s live 200th podcast super-show and catch up on some comics.  When the dust settled on the microphones their three favorites rose to the top of the stack.  Legendary Star Lord #6 is the funniest, bestest, worst date in the galaxy as Peter and Kitty try to make the long distance work and for Anthony and Elizabeth to cringe at how badly the Star Lord bungles thing up.  Another rare appearance for the podcast, a DC title sneaks into the spotlight with Detective Comics #37 serving as a great jumping on point for the book and the art and story by podcast favorite Francis Manapul and Brian Buccalleto have us both interested in what’s to come from the Bat Book that isn’t Scott Snyder’s.

All this plus the latest Mad Max trailer, the Steven Colbert Report interview with Smaug, and more of the normal geeking out you love so much.

Movie Issues: Jingle All the Way

The Christmas Season has arrived and here at Movie Issues HQ Leland the Grinch and his Elf Helper Spooky are getting into the the spirit with their first movie for the holidays, Jingle All the Way.  The 1996 Christmas “Classic” directed by the same man who brought you The Flintstones and previous podcast alum, Christopher Columbus, that guy who made the first two Harry Potter films.  These two cinematic “geniuses” joined forces to tell another tired tale of workaholic dad who learns that family is truly the greatest gift.  Listen in as Leland and Spooky complain about the inconsistent tone of the movie, how working dads get a bad rap, and all the other biggest movie news that’s dropped since last week!

Comic Issues #200 – Live Nerd Party Celebration!

Can you believe it? Comic Issues is celebrating their 200th episode! The little podcast that started with four friends sitting in a diner is now a huge podcast of three friends sitting at a dining room table. Mind-boggling!

But seriously, thanks so much to everybody who tuned in to the double-sized LIVE STREAM of the 200th episode. Prizes were handed out, beer was poured, the listeners got sneaky with making the crew take drinks, and the age-old question was asked: if you were born a shape changer, wouldn’t that make you bisexual? Wouldn’t it?

Along the way we also talked Suicide Squad, Doctor Strange, and the right way to pronounce “gif.” There was also a sing-along in the chat room, but that didn’t make it to the recording. Next time, guys. Let it goooooooo….
