After a month’s hiatus (due to unforeseen circumstances), the on-location episode is back! And for the March visit to Valhalla Games and Comics, the topic is completely open. On this recording Derek is joined my several of the shop regulars including Craig, Matt, and Tristan. Among the many topics they cover are the recent Justice League Vs. Suicide Squad miniseries; the latest (and one of the best) X-Men films, Logan; the news surrounding the production of Star Trek: Discovery; and lots of manga talk. In fact, from the amount of time everyone discussed Japanese comics, it looked like this might turn into the month’s manga episode. Along the way the guys discuss Stephen Hillenburg (the creator of SpongeBob SquarePants) and his recently announced fight with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, legally permissible uses of the word “mutant,” Derek’s shame at being so behind on Marvel’s Netflix and Fox series, and Tristan’s utter dislike of children.

What’s sleazier: The Taschen Big Book of *****? Or two of our hosts defending Mel Gibson? You decide!
Sit down and warm up by the fire. The neon pink lights of the city offer no protection from this show. We are talking sleaze. You’ll hear our favorite album covers, memorable movie posters, and the subversive pulp books of yesteryear … all set to a groovy track that would get even the nastiest Toydarian lucky. PLUS, we “direct” our own sleazy masterpieces. Check your inhibitions, or you’ll never survive this one.
