My Comic Shop History 3.2: Packrat Comics

Host Anthony Desiato continues his journey to comic book stores around the country with a visit to Packrat Comics in Hilliard, OH. Packrat made industry news in early 2017 with a viral photo highlighting the problem of delinquent customers. Anthony welcomes owners Teresa and Jamie Colegrove to discuss the inspiration for (and reaction to) that photo, overcoming early struggles and staying positive, winning an Eisner Award, and much more. Making it a true double-date episode, Anthony’s wife, Stephanie, also joins in on the fun.

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 50: What a Dildo!

maxresdefault (1)

It’s Star Wars weekend so Jim and Eric talk…DC Comics.  Yep, they stick with their mission statement and talk about every DC Comics comic book that came out this week.  The podcast may be filled with Superman, Batman, and the Justice League, but Eric’s girlfriend steals the show with her podcast debut and it’s a doozy.  In fact, it literally took Jim’s breath (and ability to speak) away.  We all hope that Eric is still alive and that you all enjoy the show.

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 44: When I Say Yummy, You Say Pie

Justice League - Darkseid War - Superman #1 (2015) - Page 10

 

Jim and Eric get together for another podcast, but this week’s bunch of books has got them down. While Eric wants DC Comics to get “Back to the Basics”, Jim just wants to rant and rave with or without pants on.  After Eric announces he’s a pretty girl, the boys talk about Superman’s love of pie, Steve Orlando’s “unique” dialogue and other stuff they found lacking…which means everything.  Eric may not be the voice for every comic book fan out there, but that hasn’t stopped him from trying to be.  They also discuss this week’s DC Comic News, read Listener Mail and  are joined by Reggie, Professor DC and Ryan to make this another…podcast.  Enjoy!

Episode 38: “He’s Dead Jim” / Weird Science DC Comics Podcast

Dick-Grayson-Nightwing-Batman-vs.-Superman-movie-570x294

Jim and Eric continue the fun this week by discussing all the DC Comics and DC Comic News that two grown men can take.  Along the way, we all learn that their local comic book shop still sucks, Jim doesn’t really pay attention to the news and Eric has a lot of friends who all have ridiculous nicknames.  Jim also continues his nyquil addiction…but it’s all for the good of the podcast.  When they get to the books, they don’t agree as usual, but Jim does convince Eric that We are Robin wasn’t as bad as he first thought.  Jim:1 Eric: 0  Enjoy!

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode #37: Double Secret Probation

what-is-actually-wrong-with-the-new-52-54e2cd49-45a3-447b-a830-d81c1ed30a27-jpeg-99161

It’s been a tough couple of weeks in Weird Science Land…After the fallout from Eric’s Batman #44 review started to settle, Twitter decided to flag the site as “malicious”!  Delicious maybe, but malicious?  While Eric tries to calm the ship, Jim has conspiracy theories and is just generally pissed off.  After Jim loses his voice and takes too much cold medicine, they hunker down to talk some comics and actually end up in a pretty good mood.  Who knows what the future holds, but one things for sure, “Bricks no hit back”.

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 36: Haters Gonna Hate

Batman #44 (2015) - Page 3

Jim and Eric get together this week to talk comics, Star Wars…who am I kidding?!?  They get together to bitch and moan about the shit storm surrounding Eric’s less than flattering review of Batman #44.  It really had Eric down the whole week and Jim does nothing to help his buddy feel better.  They also breakdown most of this week’s books (including Batman #44) and have a very extended version of The Other Side talking Star Wars with Ryan.  Of course, there is also DC Comics News, Listener Mail and Reggie’s Recklessness.  It’s another long one, but we hope you enjoy it.

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 35: Nightmares and Dreams

gl-brjpg-52a913_1280w

ep 35: After last week’s marathon, Jim and Eric are still exhausted and Jim may have drank too much caffeine.  With less books, little news and a bad attitude, they recorded one of the shortest podcasts they have ever done.  We still find out what Eric really thinks of Wes Craven, what Jim thinks of Green Arrow and what both of them think of each other.  It’s another love fest for everyone to join in on.

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 34: The Marathon Session

batman

ep 34: Jim and Eric cave in to  listener demand that they get rid of the “Flash Reviews” segment of the podcast and talk at length about every single DC Comics issue that hit the shelves this week.  That is fifteen books and boy, it took a long time to record this one.  I don’t know if they can keep up this pace and not kill themselves or find themselves abandoned by their family and friends. They also talk some news including DC Comics going against the “batgirlization” of their books.   So, here is the longest podcast they will ever do…until the next one.  Enjoy!

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Episode 33: “Late Night Sleepover Fun”

JUSTL_Cv41_marquee_54ff988b458205.89598968

 

ep 33: “Late Night Sleepover Fun” With not a lot of news, but plenty of Listener Mail and Comic Books, Jim and Eric get down to business and talk and talk and talk…  While they couldn’t remember the name of seminal band, Sugar Ray, they did remember Welcome Back Kotter, Guns and Roses and Third Eye Blind among other nonsense.  They are also joined by Reggie for his Recklessness and Ryan Clark’s Other Side segment featuring Welcome Back #1.  All that was missing is a stuffed crust pizza and a Puppet Master movie to make this a throwback sleepover extravaganza!
