Is it time? Have you seen it yet? Well, too late, because Cory and Joe talk about the history of the Guardians of the Galaxy! The comics! The characters! The crossovers! And, eventually, The MOVIE! Don’t wait any longer, listen to this!
So, as we wind on down the road, what have Cory and Joe been up to? Obviously not getting this damn podcast mixed and posted, the slackers! Joe went to a Toy History exhibit, talks about seeing Sir Paul McCartney in concert and his family’s trip through Wisconsin and comic shops
Cory actually went and did some things too, like visiting Minnesota’s largest candy store, Hot Comics Jordan and a video arcade. Yes they still have them!
They also have a long discussion about canceled comics, Freaking and Geeking, the usual shenanigans and the proverbial much, much more!
An episode where we remember comic shop owner, comic convention runner, and our friend, Dominic Postiglione

This episode covers Kirby’s work and life from 1962 – 1970, the most famous and creatively fertile period of Jack Kirby’s career.

It’s another hour discussing the life of the King of Comics, Jack Kirby!
Kassie Brown, writer of Rethinking Democracy isn’t someone involved in comic books, but instead, she is someone who is putting her life where her beliefs are.
