Like a rocket from the crypt, Ben & Josh roared back on the on-demand audio airwaves for episode 60 of the flagship Near Mint Comic Show, recorded live to digital tape on January 25, 2014.

Listen Now:

Among the topics the two talked about:

Comics related movie news and rumors!
There’s been a metric crapload of Marvel-related movie announcements since we last recorded, and some additional setbacks from DC. We discuss Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, Batman vs. Superman, Ben finally seeing Man of Steel, not seeing Wolverine, and what’s new on the small screen. Will Ben see The Lego Movie?!?

Josh goes digital!
Thanks to Ben, Josh has gone digital for a few issues. Does he like it? Does he hate it? Will he set the pulp and paper industry back with his decision?

Ben talks Parker!
Not Peter Parker, his son Parker. (Hey, he owns the house. He can talk about whatever he wants!)

Comics!
The Dark Knight, Marvel Knights: Spider-Man, Jupiter’s Legacy, Secret Service, Arms of the Octopus and more are discussed.

Walking Dead!
We talk the series from 1:11:49 – 1:17:02. Spoiler warning, y’all!

Josh gets spoiled!
Why did Marvel decided to spoil the world about the return of Peter Parker?

The guys also discuss comics constipation (seriously!), give a postmortem to Venom and do a preview of the next edition of The Minty Awards!

Music: Edie Brickell & the New Bohemians, Peter Frampton, Grateful Dead

Prez-Elect Obama: A Spider-Man Fan?

Barack Obama - Comic Fan!
Barack Obama - Comic Fan!

I knew there was a reason I loved this guy.

As I perused Newsarama the other day, I saw this post entitled ‘5 Lessons We Hope Obama Learned from Spider-Man‘ and bookmarked the page to check it out later. Then, a friend of mine on Facebook had a link to ‘50 Things We Didn’t Know About Obama‘. Number 1? He collects Spider-Man and Conan The Barbarian comics.

Whu? Huh? How did I miss this?

Apparently, this just broke over the past days and this article points to how a certain store is now selling more and more because of this revelation. The President-Elect is not only a comics fan, but a Spider-Man fan?

I love America.
