Cory continues his discussion about Jack “King” Kirby, covering the years 1956 to 1961.
Cory!! gives an update on the podcast, on himself and then tell you what podcasts HE listens to. Probably not thinking that if you listen to them, you might stop listening to his.
Another SpringCon is in the books and Joe and Cory!! are ready to talk about it. They also talk about where they thing the Con should go from here, cool stuff they got cheap and why Neal Adams is bat-shit crazy.
All of this, plus the usual shenanigans and tomfoolery and a Special Announcement from Joe about a long-forgotten show segment returning!
It’s just a couple of days until the annual Spring Con here in the great Twin Cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis in the great state of Minnesota, so Joe and Cory!! talk about the convention. It’s the 25th annual two day convention so they do another Very Special Episode about the convention.
And no, that doesn’t mean that Cory’s Uncle, played by Tom Hanks, gets drunk and slaps him, causing the whole family to come together and get him to join AA.
But first, we hear about Cory’s car taking a dumper again…it’s like deja vu from last year when something went screwy every week. We then get into the origins on the Minnesota convention, how Cory got pulled into the Convention, and why Shinders wanted NOTHING to do with the convention.
We get into the early days of the Con, stories about running the show and much much more!
That’s right, it’s time for another Very Special Episode. No, not the one where Blossom buys her first Bra, it’s the one about Free Comic Book Day!
Go ahead and download it, because, just like the comics, this is FREE!
Cory!! discusses the prestige format books that attempted to jumpstart the New Universe and ultimately laid it to rest, the mini-series that brought it into the Marvel Universe and the Warren Ellis mini-series that put the New Universe in a new light.
Along the way, he discusses horrible 90′s art, Marvel being bought by New World Pictures, Jim Shooter’s lessons from the line and how other publishers haven’t learned to the lessons of it’s failure.
Hey, it’s Friday and we’ve got a new podcast for you! It’s all about how Joe has no ideas.
OK, really it’s about Superman! What were the first stories Joe and Cory!! read, enjoyed and what do they think about the FIRST Super-hero. Oh, they have the other features like Freaking and Geeking, Hanging at the Home and the rest of the usual shenanigans!
We start by talking about Joe’s job and quickly get into buying back issues of comic books by the pound! And you people say we take too long to talk about comics!
After the ads and plugs, they discuss their plans for Free Comic Book Day, Hangin’ at the Home story wherein Cory convinces people his urine is blue and how Joe freaked out a comic book artist and convinced him he had a rare disease. They also go over a couple of obscure comics, dig into Joe’s resorted collection, Cory has the angriest rant during freaking and the proverbial much, much more!
All of this, plus the usual shenanigans. What are you waiting for? It’s free! Download it!
Joe continues to go through his collection, Cory!! continues to work more hours than he should, comics continue to come out and the snow keeps falling. Oh, there’s a lot of the usual shenanigans and tomfoolery, so go ahead and listen!
It’s episode 101, and Cory and Joe actually got to spend some time together in person to watch WrestleMania! So, they chat about that for a bit as well as their favorite Manias of all time!
We then get back to Joe’s Great 2013 Comics Sorting Project where Joe and Cory talk about the comics he finds as he goes through his collection. They talk comics history, comics sales and the series themselves as Joe finds them. What else do we talk about? X-Men, Hawkguy, sharing a pull list and guinea pig droppings for starters.
Don’t ask, just listen!
