Jimmy has tamed the beast that was San Diego Comic Con and survived to tell the tales! Here, you’ll hear his recap of the show. Just a few fun tidbits of what went down, people he met, celebs he saw, elbows he rubbed, parties, roundtable sessions, interviews, awesome press rooms, hotels, outside of Comic Con, and all of the madness! He mostly did press rooms but managed to get some 1:1 interviews as well. He chatted with the Clare Kramer (“Glory” on Buffy the Vampire Slayer) about her new documentary that she directed called Joyrider. He also talked to pop star Lights about her upcoming album Skin & Earth and the comic book mini-series she created/wrote/drew/colored/lettered/etc. that coincides with it. On the last day of the con, he conversed with Shannon Wheeler about his new book Sh*t My President Says as well as his past work. And finally, Jimmy had his annual therapy session interview with clinical psychologist pal Dr. Andrea Letamendi discussing superheroes, Star Wars, and real life issues.

Starting next week and the following few weeks after, there will be no regular format shows. Only SDCC press room specials. Jimmy needs that long just to recover from all of the craziness that is Comic Con International. You will hear roundtables for Inhumans, Wynonna Earp, Doctor Who, Legends of Tomorrow, Batman and Harley Quinn, Dirk Gently, Supergirl, Dark Matter, Battlestar Galactica reunion, Gotham, iZombie, Justice League Action, Lucifer and Teen Titans Go! He missed some rooms that he wanted to cover but boy howdy did he still cover a lot!

The Lost Comic Timing Episode – Batman: Under the Red Hood

BTTF

GREAT SCOTT!!!

Gather round, as we go back in time to August 18, 2010. Yup, exactly six years ago to the day. Before Avengers was a movie, before The New 52, before Brent was married, and before Ian owned a smartphone. In this never before released episode, Juan de Jesus returns from a long hiatus, which is now even longer, to join Brent and Ian to review the Batman: Under the Red Hood animated movie, followed by some thoughts on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and why it flopped at the box office. Time flies when you completely forget an episode exists! But this is classic Comic Timing goodness, that’s for sure. Dig in, and reminisce on days gone by.

You can e-mail the show at comictiming@gmail.com and be sure to Like us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/ComicTiming. Be sure to follow Ian on Twitter @i_am_scifi, or on Tumblr at heehaw-ds9.tumblr.com; Brent is on Twitter too @kossinab. And if you want to find out what Juan has been up to lately, check out his work over at ReviewFix, or follow him on Twitter @DaNerdyPugilist.

Thanks again for listening, and we’ll catch you next time!

Jimmy joined the roundtables for the upcoming CBS show SUPERGIRL while at Comic Con. You’ll hear from Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, David Harewood, Andrew Kriesberg (Showrunner), Sarah Schecter (Executive Producer). The CNI mic is pointed directly at the talent so you’ll hear them the best (and that’s more important!) so apologies if the media questions are a bit muddled. The show’s trailers look really fun and everyone sounded genuinely enthusiastic to be involved in it. Especially Mehcad, whom was a blast to have on. Some great hints on the series debut.
