Jimmy planned on having the podcast wife Erica on to co-host but due to a work commitment (on his part) he had to go solo. Next week there shall be a co-host! He discusses the demise of The Podcast Arena at New York Comic Con this year and mourns/gives tribute to one of his idols Robin Williams. Jimmy sat in the roundtables for the hit BBC America show Orphan Black and chatted with stars and producers Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Ari Millen, Dylan Bruce, Kristian Bruun, Graeme Manson, and John Fawcet. The roundtables were brief as they had to rush off to their panel but we got some good questions in. Apologies for the annoying/unprofessional reporter from HGTV whom manipulated the tables with her inane questions and often interrupted talent to chat with them. Besides that, and while brief, we still managed to get some exciting news about the upcoming season! Jimmy also chatted with amazing cartoonist Gene Luen Yang about his new graphic novel The Shadow Hero and some of his awesome past comic work. News includes: a new Batman comic called Gotham by Midnight coming from Ray Fawkes/Ben Templesmith, Disney theme parks will add more Star Wars and Kyle Maclachlan joins Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!

It’s the super huge and long BEST OF 2012 show! Jimmy is joined by Marvel’s The Watcher host Lorraine Cink and good pal Mike Cho. Both are CNI vets and bring their nerdy knowledge to the podcast once again. Jimmy saw Django Unchained and Attack of the 50 Ft Cheerleader. One had lotsa violence and another had lotsa boobs. Guess which one he REALLY liked? News bits include:Axe Cop will debut on Fox’s late night animation domination in July, Guillermo del Toro is heading up a DC comics based “Dark Universe” film, XX coming from Marvel, Adventure Time graphic novel on the way, Joseph Gordon Levitt cast in Sin City 2, Disney’s Aladdin coming to Broadway, and Disney Junior’s “A Poem is…” series recruits Doctor Who and Lady Mary Crawley. And the feature segment is our lengthy, informative and fun BEST OF 2012 picks…that we read! As always, listener feedback, Top 3 and more! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
