The best things in life are free – and this podcast is no exception! This week, we geek out over Free Comic Book Day, Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Eisner Awards, Herb Trimpe and much, much more.
First up in Top o’ the Pile, we talk about Essex County, Uncanny X-Men, and Josh’s refusal to read comics. then it’s off to our local comic shop to take in the sights, sounds and smells of Free Comic Book Day.
Dan and Ben assemble for a (mostly spoiler-free) review of Avengers: Age of Ultron that gives props to big action and breakout characters. Dan chimes in on last week’s Daredevil conversation. We run down some of the recent Eisner Award nominations and make our (no doubt completely wrong) picks to win.
Can o’ Beans closes out the show with promises to read She-Hulk, FCBD comics and, well… anything in Josh’s case.It’s an action-packed, over-stuffed episode that you won’t want to miss, “but you don’t have to take my word for it.”
We recorded one of the best shows in not just our history, but ALL PODCAST HISTORY this past Saturday as part of the 2009 edition of Free Comic Book Day, live from Double Midnight Comics here in Manchester, NH! It’s Episode 13 and it’s here now!
– SPILLS! Be amazed as we talk about the history of FCBD and what the publishers were cookin’ up for this year.
– THRILLS! Be enchanted by the interviews we did with shop co-owner Brett, store patrons and even Spider-Man himself!
– CHILLS! Hear Ben’s heartfelt apology for his actions against Josh in episode 12!
If you’re a comic fan, I guarantee you will love this show as there’s a little bit of everything including our talk with a manga-loving card player, an actual DC fan and what it’s like to be a shop owner. You’ll also hear from our special guest co-host PJ Huot, who you’ve heard in past episodes.
