Hoo boy. Did not think I was going to make this particular deadline. I won’t bore you with the blah-blah-blahs, but let’s just say: papa needs a new microphone and he needs one bad. I apologize in advance for all the not-especially-discreet cracking and popping going on at various points in the background of this. We are maybe two weeks away from a solution to both it and the mild echo chamber effect that’s afflicted us ever since Graeme managed to transcend this corporeal realm.
Buttttttttt, anywayyyyyyy… Gotta keep this short and snappy so lemme just say this: Wait, What? Ep. 83 is two hours and twenty-seven minutes long, and Graeme and I do not spend all that time trying to remember if the boss at the end of Crazy Climber was a gorilla or not!
No. Instead, we do our best to cover a lot of lost ground by jawing about Iron Muslim and Zombies vs. Fanboys from Boom Comics, Kirby: Genesis, the current state of comics and the comics internet including Chris Roberson quitting DC and David Brothers’ amazing article over at Comics Alliance, Before Watchmen, Grant Morrison, Brian Bendis and Avengers Assemble #2, as well as the Oral History of the Avengers.
Also? The eighth issues of Wonder Woman Justice League, OMAC, and Batman, Casanova #3, The Shadow #1, The Boys by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, Alabaster Wolves, Saga #2, Archie Meets KISS, Prophet #24, more issues of Glamourpuss, and much, much more.
This show was pretty late making its way to iTunes, but if it’s not there yet, it will be there soon. But even so! You can also listen to it here and now if you would prefer. Behold:
As always, thanks for your patience. I gotta go jump through hoops for the next ten hours or so, but we’ll have more for you next week–and, of course, thank you for listening!
