Comic Issues #161 – The Battle For Your Love

We’re now in the second week of the Throne of Geekdom, where the icons of TV, movies, animation, comics, and games are fighting it out for your love. Remember, it’s not who would win in a fight (because, really, then Superman wins everything.) It’s a battle to see who you love the best.

So on this week’s podcast the crew talks about who’s likely to take it all the way to the Throne, and who’s going to get beaten into oblivion in the first week. Along the way we also talk about Microsoft possibly ditching Xbox, Marvel rewarding their digital buyers, and how 2018 is a liiiiittle long to wait for a new Avatar movie (the blue monkey-cat-people one, not the Airbenders.)

Comic Issues #160 – Guardians of the Everything Else

Like we said last week, everybody’s busy. But somehow we cram in a few things when we’re not at our jobs. Sometimes it’s freelance work, sometimes it’s getting a new place, sometimes it’s watching COMPLETELY AWESOME TRAILERS. And sometimes it’s dealing with the breeding habits of Pokémon. You heard me: Pokémon. Sex.

Join our heroes and heroine as we talk about a completely random assortment of things that fill our days, including (and not limited to) cat toys, romance novels, steampunk atriums, Stan Lee, Guardians of the Galaxy, and that time of year when a young Pokémon’s fancy turns to thoughts of love and that cute little girl Pokémon over there…

Comic Issues #159 – Working hard and hardly working

Everybody’s working so hard lately, but there’s two kinds of working. First there’s the building, designing, digging, power-tools kind of working. We’re doing a lot of that. But there’s also catching up on all the awesome geeky stuff out there. All those geeky TV shows won’t watch themselves you know.

Join the podcast crew as we debrief on our busy weeks filled with construction, yard work, hazardous dust, Almost Human, Hannibal, Bates Motel, and more.

Comic Issues #138 – 3 Years of Good Geeking

3 years ago four friends started a podcast that would one day save the world… Well some of the names have changed and we haven’t saved the world, yet.  But Comic Issues has marched forward and though some of the faces have changed the spirit has never died.  Together we gather every week to talk about the geeky happenings in the nerd-o-sphere, make fun of each other, and enjoy time spent with friends.  Along the way new friends have graced us with their presence including Leland from Movie Issues, Ross Thompson of Kingdom Con, Amanda Lynne from Birds’of’Play, Colin Bass of Young Justice: Abduction, Chris Gore from Podcrash!, Jonathan Pimentel, and of course Sara, Beau, Chris and Kody from The Villainous Lair.  These three years have been amazing and we have our listeners to thank for it.

So to celebrate 3 years we joined up with our Villainous Friends and played the greatest geeky drinking game ever, DRUNK QUEST! *cue fanfare*  Listen in as friends force each other to battle their demons in the bottle in this EXTRA long podcast.  Don’t worry though as the booze flows the fun grows.

Comic Issues #157 – Why we watched the Super Bowl

Millions of people gathered to watch the Super Bowl so they could see the football game of the year. (Sorry about that Broncos, better luck next time?) But geeks around the world waited through all that football stuff so we could get to the Captain America Trailer, and see Tom Hiddleston in a Jaguar commercial.

Join the podcast crew as we debrief on the Winter Soldier, Spider-Man, and Transformers trailers. We also fit in gaming conventions, BSG: Blood and Chrome, and the wretched excess that was Man of Steel (since Elizabeth only just now got around to watching it.)

Comic Issues #156 – Not Suitable for Children?

This week your podcast heroes and heroine catch up with their recent adventures to Night Vale, the discovery of Hulu, and Andrew explains how he’s broken hearted over Broken Age.  Once the pod-train leaves the station the crew talk about the recent controversy behind IDW’s much discussed Powerpuff Girls cover, by artist Mimi Yoon.  Are the children super heroines too sexy for their cover or is this another case of censorship over artistic vision?

Comic Issues #154 – Don’t Hate, Just Wait

This week the crew gathers together to celebrate the return of the one true wall crawler, Peter Parker!  Now with Pete’s return Anthony breathes a sigh of relief and has put down his hatred for Superior Spider-man so that he can pick up the book and read what all the fuss it about.  Thus spurns the conversation about how the geek world exploded over paradigm changes only to be pleased with the results later.

Up front though Anthony, Elizabeth, and Andrew get into a hot button descussion about internet privacy and how Google is going to kill you with your thermostat… ask Drew.
