We invited Comedian Roman Erik Grisby to come talk about Black Panther (out this Friday 2/16/18!), but we got so much more! This is one of our longer episodes but it is so much fun we couldn't cut any of it. Roman talks with A.T. and Paul about Black Panther (obviously), his history with comic books, his stance on Thor Ragnarok, a famous friend from his high school days and all sorts of "Hot Takes".
AT and Paul sit down with fellow weirdo, Brianne Kostielney! Bri read The Tick back in the 90's, but hasn't been back to the wonderful world of comics much since! We gave her Mockingbird (by Chelsea Cain) as her reintroduction and see what her feelings are on having a strong female character in comics to look to, the social commentary made in comics, and talk about where her nerd lives!
Heath, Paul, and I hang out with our wonderfully nerdy friend Shannon Heuscher and talk about her favorite character, Doctor Strange! We talk about our favorite parts of the movie, who else we would have cast as The Ancient One, and of course BennyCumz! Obviously we talk a LOT about the books! The Way of The Weird, Magic Bullets, Sorcerer Supreme choose your own adventure, and what Strange title we think everyone should read (Spoiler... actually no, no it's not a spoiler! Go read The Oath by Brian K. Vaughan!)
Nate Reads a Comic Book! Nate McWhortor (Comedian - National Comedy Theatre Phoenix) joins Paul, Heath, and Anthony to talk about his introduction into the wonderful world of comics! We gave him Rough Riders by Adam Glass (Aftershock) and we had a blast talking about ALL of it! From Teddy being Batman to Rasputin's third leg, we talk about it all. We also learn about what Nate is nerdy about and find out if Rough Riders was good enough to get Nate hooked on comics (SPOILER... it totally is).
