You’re in for a real fun experience this week! In Episode 281, I talk with Ben Kahn, the creator/scripter of Heavenly Blues, coming soon from Scout Comics. I met Ben at this year’s C2E2 convention, and I enjoyed the first two issues from his new comic. We discuss the characters the series centers around, and why he’s completing his MBA. Be sure to let your local shop know you want this comic! For more about Ben, go to this link. Also, to keep up with Bruno Hidalgo, the great artist Ben collaborates with on the comic, be sure to check out his artwork here!
Angeli Arbitrium – that’s the name of the new comic from Joseph Bradford and his partners at TikiGodComics.com.
During my recent trip to Shock Pop Comiccon in Fort Lauderdale, I met Joe and was introduced to his book during the first convention he attended as a comics pro, selling the first issue of this title at the very first booth he set up to tell people about the debut issue. As a result, I got to chat with Joe about how the book came together, including finding artist Kay. We discuss the format of the series, the characters and what he has in mind both for this book and other projects he will be sending our way. Don’t miss this fun and informative conversation with an up-and-coming creator!
We’re back to the old format and I hope you like it because…. Well…. Tough.

Hellboy comes stomping and swinging into Burden Hill and meets the Beasts of Burden, and Burnt Weiners is on the scene reporting! Will Bo show too much cleavage to get the top anchor position? You will only know if you listen!
The Weiners are joined by Brad, long time friend of Weed and former comic book junkie, who has given up the habit but is sucked back into thei dark and seedy world out of boredom.
Brad tells us about an upcoming indie movie called ‘Sad Cafe’ that he graces, waiting for the call from Harvey Weinstein. Steege cracks open Rifts: Planes of Talara (Wildstorm) which is based on an upcoming MMORP.
Bo checks out the last issue of Widow Warriors (Dynamite), Green Arrow (DC) and once again is floored by The Tick (New England). John jumps back into an old love of his Action Comics (DC), checks out the new creative team on Teen Titans (DC) and then dishes about the love story in Henry and Glenn (Cantankerous)!
Weed decides to have mic problems (which is why he doesn’t appear for awhile during the episode) and lets us know what he really thinks about X-Men Vs. Vampires (Marvel), Hack Slash (Image) and Angel (IDW).

With the Shaft taking care of a sick wife, the balls come out to play. You get riveting discussion on the greatness of SNL (well old SNL not the shit from the mid 80s or the garbage now) and that leads to a timely discussion on the funniness of Hee-Haw and Carol Burnett. Kevin once again tries to live out his fantasy of being on Love Boat and we learn that the only thing that Brett Somers is good for is offering her hole to Jack Klugman. Kev discusses the Movie Fanboys and that leads to Dr. Who Talk as well as a little start trek (would it be a FBC without these). Next is a lot of comics, but honestly my Blackberry fucked up so i just got to listen to a little bit of it. Here is what i know was discussed: Wolverine Weapon X and Wolverine, REBELS, Angel, Batman, Teen Titans, Avengers: The Children’s Crusade, Captain America. I know there was more and i am going to try and listen again, Just as all you should too, Enjoy!
