It’s the holiday’s and we’re feeling festive! There’s plenty of reason to celebrate as Ben and Josh give themselves a big ol’ pat on the back for reaching 30 EPISODES! Then we bring in some special guests for a hearty discussion on The Walking Dead. Ben’s wife Jen makes her first authorized appearance on the show and Greg Giorgio joins the party as we get knee-deep in roamers, walkers, geeks and biters. We exchange pleasantries and chat with our guests before dropping the Spoiler Warning at 28 minutes
If you haven’t yet read The Walking Dead, or seen the TV show skip ahead to 1:24:36 or you WILL be spoiled. We discuss characters and plot lines from the Walking Dead Compendium (Issues 1-48) and the first 6 episodes of the AMC series. You’ve been warned!
Once we wrap up our Walking Dead talk and put the school teachers to bed, Ben and Josh soldier on and talk about holiday gift-giving/receiving for nerds and discuss the best of what they’ve been reading including, The Return of Bruce Wayne, Big Time, Last Days of American Crime, Avengers and more. All this, plus listener email, contest winners and some BIG announcements about things upcoming from the Near Mint Comic Show – HALLELIJAH!
