SEASON FINALE! Host Anthony Desiato seeks the guidance of guests Mike Capolino and Craig Higgins as he tries to reconcile his nostalgia with his current experience reading “DC: Rebirth.” Season 2 of My Comic Shop History concludes with the biggest piece of the collecting puzzle: Can you go home again?
Derek is back at his local comic shop, Valhalla Games and Comics in Plano, TX, for the October on-location episode. But it is also Halloween ComicFest 2016, adding even more flavor into mix. He is joined by customers of the shop, some of them in costume, to discuss horror comics, Halloween specials, as well as scary movies and games. They spend much of their time discussing the many free comic-book offerings for this year’s Halloween ComicFest. Derek is particularly interested in the special horror manga issues, such as VIZ Media’s Tomie and Drawn and Quarterly’s Shigeru Mizuki’s Kitaro: Strange Fun for Everyone. But there are many other titles that the gang discusses, ranging from holiday-appropriate (e.g., Comix Tribe’s Mummy’s Always Right, American Mythology’s The Three Stooges Halloween Hullabaloo, and the BoooOOOoooM! Box Halloween Haunt 2016) to Halloween-free, such as several offerings from DC and Marvel

This week, the paperback edition of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain’s graphic novel Get Jiro: Blood and Sushi, was released. This book is a prequel to his 2012 sci-fi comic Get Jiro!, and like the original, it is steeped in modern foodie culture. Luckily, Amanda is also steeped in foodie culture.
So we talk about Get Jiro! and other foodie-related books (like Starve and Chew), and how some are good about catering to new culinary enthusiasts, while others depict a subculture where not knowing the unwritten insider foodie rules mean that you literally deserve to die… all while being part of a comics culture that is trying desperately to shed a long reputation of being hostile to outsiders. And if that all sounds heavy, fear not: there is also a story about Rob eating a pile of rock salt at a fine French restaurant that is just plain funny and dumb.
We also discuss Civil War II #6, written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by David Marquez!
And, the usual disclaimers:
This show contains spoilers. If you don’t want to know if Jiro survives Get Jiro: Blood and Sushi, well, you’re probably being willfully obtuse considering it’s a prequel, but consider yourself warned.
This show contains adult, profane language, and is therefore not safe for work. We talk about C. B. Cebulski’s Lucky Peach. You want to risk your mom hearing about that? Then get some earbuds.
Jim, Eric and Reggie gather to talk all of this week’s DC Comics and while they claim they have nothing to say, the length of the podcast says otherwise. We also find out that Jim was in a car crash and has lice and really hates dioramas. They are also joined by Chris, Branden, Christian and Dillyn for a hell of a show that is all put to music by the lovely Dancing Mike. Enjoy!
At New York Comic Con, Jimmy sat in on the round tables for SuperMansion w/ Keegan-Michael Key, Heidi Gardnerr, Breckin Meyer, Gary Anthony Williams, EP Zeb Wells and EP Matthew Senreich. What’s in store for the upcoming Christmas special? How did Heidi find the voice for her character “Cooch”? Did Keegan find any inspiration for his character from politics? Jimmy also jumped in to the Stan Against Evil press room for a couple of super short roundtables with Janet Varney and Dana Gould. Hear a bit about the new IFC show and what’s in store for season 1. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love! Also, get a hold of us!
Jim, Eric and Reggie get together to talk about two pretty awesome books. Hear why they think Damian Wayne is the best 13 year old ever and why every fan of Wonder Woman has reason to celebrate. Also, Jim got in a head on collision with a truck today and may not be in the right state of mind to record a podcast and Eric is a hateful person who misses his daddy.

In celebration of the Halloween season, Shea and Derek devote October’s episode to a discussion of horror manga. This month they look at six — count them, six! — books, all of which embody the eerie holiday spirit in some way. That makes this a extra-long episode, clocking in at over two and a half hours, the longest manga show the Two Guys have ever produced. They begin with a classic example of horror manga, Hideshi Hino’s Hell Baby(Blast Books), and then move on to the medium’s most notable practitioner of the genre, Junji Ito and his 2014 collection Fragments of Horror(VIZ Media). They then turn up the creep factor with Usamaru Furuya’s Lychee Light Club (Vertical Comics) and Jun Abe’s Portus(VIZ Media). Finally, the guys conclude with two brand new titles from Kodansha Comics, Kazuhiro Fujita’s The Black Museum: The Ghost and the Lady, Book 1 and the shojo anthology Neo Parasyte F. The latter is a fifteen-story celebration of Hitoshi Iwaaki’s classic Parasyte series, which ran from 1988 to 1995. In their extensive discussions, Shea and Derek visit such topics as the juxtaposition of cute and gross, why the grotesque may become a writing crutch, the many uses of gender ambiguity, if video games are inherently spooky, and how Florence Nightingale can be quite sexy. That’s right, folks, it’s all here!
