Podcast! The Comics

This week a while ago, the boys got together to catch up, talk festivals, fermented fish and No Man's Sky! That game that generated a ton of controversy for disappointing people was, contrarianly enough, something James quite enjoyed! But he also likes fermented fish.

Also, comics?

Also, the Moonshot Volume 2 Kickstarter is still live! Check it out and maybe consider giving it money so James has to do work!

This week, the boys got together to talk about self promotion! On Brandon's end of things, his comic book shop, Variant Edition, is moving, and he'd like it if you all know about it! Because of this, James is breaking his "Brandon can't mention his business by name for some reason" rule, and including the link to not only information on Variant Edition's new location, but also a great sale they're running:

And in addition to that, James has news: he's been asked to write the foreword/introduction for the next volume of Moonshot, the indigenous comics collection! The first volume of the book was a huge success, and the second is being Kickstarted right now, with a campaign ending on September 30th! Check it out and get a hardcover:

Next, in lesser, unimportant news, they talk about TV, the WWE Cruiserweight Classic and, of course, comics!

This/last week (whoops!) the boys got together to talk the end of James' move, life cohabitating and of course insult each other. Afterwards, they discussed the WWE's Cruiserweight Classic, which is just a gosh danged delight don't you know.  It you're not a wrestling person, this could actually be something more up your speed - less weighted on story and styled more like an athletic competition, featuring handsome boys!  

Also, comics were discussed.

This week, the boys got together to catch up and watch the first episode of Netflix's new original series Stranger Things, which surprised them in its quality.  James refuses to be grateful to the person who recommended it to him, on principle.  Anyway, it's good!  Tune in for a more rigorous discussion of some John Francis Daley as hell teens.

Also, comics.

This week, the boys got together to give the most boring life updates ever, in the first ever episode recorded in the new podcast HQ, aka James' new office in his new home!  I mean, that's exciting for him, but the life update stuff is basically, "I moved, sorry about the echo."  We'll get 'em next week!

Meanwhile, the boys watched the first episode of HBO's newest drama series, The Night Of, and really liked it!  It also made James miss James Gandolfini.  After this, they discuss comics from the last week, including Jade Street Protection Services #1!

This week (!!!) the boys got together to catch up after a week without recording.  To mark the Fourth of July (and because there's no new TV that day) (and because James wanted to watch it anyway), they watch Jaws, which Brandon had never seen and James was more than willing to shout about.  After this: comics!

And yes, with this episode we are officially back on schedule!  New episodes will proceed as normal (Wednesdays, weekly) going forward and we'll try to keep folks aware of any disruptions to the schedule!

This/last week, the boys got together to catch up on life, which is to say James' move.  They discuss the first two episodes of the second season of The Jim Gaffigan Show, including his discussions of Catholicism and the difficulty in making an episode of internet outrage but also still getting the point.  Also, comics.

This/last week, the boys got together to catch up on life stuff, which means <reggaeton airhorn> moving update!  Also, James talked about seeing Popstar and becoming an Andy Samberg fan, and they discuss the first episodes of the new Voltron: Legendary Defenders show on Netflix.  Finally, comics are discussed.

This/last week (who even knows anymore), the boys got together to discuss something big: James' update on packing his apartment now that he's moving! Riveting! Also, and perhaps more importantly, they discussed the first episode of Lady Dynamite, Maria Bamford's new Netflix comedy series, and how it surprised them (or at least James) and why it's worth watching.  Also, comics.

This/last week, the boys got together to discuss what they were up to.  For example, James saw a baseball game!  They also discuss the first episode of the second season of Netflix's The Chef's Table and how something that seems pretentious might carry itself positively through enthusiasm and a desire for connection.  Finally, they discuss comics, and compare Heartthrob #2 to a romcom modern classic.

Now, you may notice that this is the second new episode in two days; James has been falling behind at posting new episodes when they went up, so there's a small backlog.  To get back on schedule, there might be one more episode this week and two episodes next week, so be warned!
