After the trainwreck that was the Annual FallCon epsiode, Joe and Cory!! have to issue an apology in order not to be called down to HR. And on top of that, a lot of comics news broke that has little to do with actual comic book content, but they are going to push their way through it in this low key, “Back to Basics” episode. They discuss:
- Comic news: Charging for autographs
- Not bringing fans in to the business end of things
- When to ask for autographs
- Why conventions are a business
- Joe dealing with celebrities at the airport
- HR issues and harassment in the comics industry: Specifically:
- Sexual harassment at a porn shop. Wait, what?
- Oh, and the creepy magazine they were trying to remember featured Heidi Saha: http://www.vampilore.co.uk/models/saha_heidi.html
- News out of the Baltimore Diamond retailer conference
- American Food! The HALLOWEEN Whopper
- They then discuss cereals that affect feces. No. Really.
- Freaking and Geeking INCLUDING: The great bunny hunt
All of this, the usual shenanigans and the ever popular Much, Much More!
