Zone 4 #258: Pork-Chops, Heroes & Skype Hates Us

The crew returns to discuss con etiquette, which turns into more of a list of don’ts. But before they get to that, there’s an update on Denver Comic Con, Heroes returning, Rocket Raccoon’s comic series, Big Trouble in Little China, Constantine, Star Wars, True Detective, Farscape, and much, much more!

And, this week we have a new Facebook Shout-Out!

Finally, the guys wrap things up with some announcements.

Chiditorad:

Nerds and nerd-friends! The Chicago Nerd Social Club is proud to be participating in Chiditarod Chicago this Saturday by running the checkpoint station at Emporium Arcade Bar! Chiditarod is now in its 9th year of causing creative mayhem for a good cause: raising funds to benefit local organizations fighting hunger, and raising food donations for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Last year the Chiditarod Foundation awarded $20K in grant money to organizations fighting hunger, and the event raised over 17K lbs of food and over $34K in funds. If you’re interested in helping us smash those records, there are two ways you can do so:

1) Donate funds via our First Giving link – each checkpoint team is doing their part to raise funds for the Chiditarod Foundation. Help us show Chiditarod just how awesome the nerdy, geek community is – whether you’re a Chicagoan or from out of town, we’d love to have your support in any amount you are able to give. http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/ChicagoNerdSocialClub/chiditarod-2014

2) Donate food to the checkpoint! Emporium will have a food donation collection box at the bar through the race this Saturday! For a list of what would help the GCFD, go here: http://www.chiditarod.org/race-day-logistics/

And if you’re interested in checking out the race, spectators are welcome at the starting line and you can come visit us at Emporium, where we’ll be staffing our checkpoint in Star Wars cosplay, with fun games for racers and the ORIGINAL trilogy screening at the bar. Also, Emporium will be carrying a SPECIAL LIMITED BREW from Illuminated Brew Works: ChiditaRye – a dry French Rye Saison, so come on down and try it! Bonus: Emporium is donating a portion of the day’s profits to the event! Learn more at www.chiditarod.org.

Wayne’s Comics #121 With Chip Mosher From Comixology

Wayne Hall, Wayne’s Comics,  Chip Mosher, Batman ’66, comixology, France, India,

I’m finding that I buy more and more from Comixology, the leading source for digital comics! So it’s great that I could interview Chip Mosher, their vice president for Communication and Marketing, about many of the things they’re doing at their website and the apps that make reading comics easy on a variety of different devices. We discussed Batman ’66, and how that successful guided view native comic comes to be.  I learned a lot talking with him, and I’m sure you will, too! To check out their offerings, be sure to go to comixology.com or your favorite app store!

Be back next week for more from the comics universes!

IC3 Episode 141: “The 5th Ghostbuster”

ic3-141

The Incompetent Comic Cabal Cast is entering a brand new era of their journey into podcasting history with this episode! As we move on from the shell of a comic podcast we once were, we decided it would be a good idea to start interviewing people you should hear about. People with a profound influence on the media you love, that you may not even know about! That’s why Ian and Dann sit down with the long-forgotten FIFTH GHOSTBUSTER!

Also, Jeff tries to sing again and we do more plugs, but who the fuck cares when you’ve got a Ghostbuster to listen to!

Fantastic Four #1
Chew #40
The Wake #6
Manhattan Projects #18
Revenge #1


Hosted by Jeff, Dann and Ian!
