We didn’t think we’d be able to pull it off at the last minute, but we did it! It’s our big 800th episode live recording. Producer Joe comes down from upstate to help out as usual. Special guests: Michael Emerson, Erica Schultz, Jonathan Baylis and Slanty Eyed Mama (Kate Rigg/Lyris Hung)! And, of course, because it’s an anniversary episode, there is plenty of music! Many thanks to the CNI Chorus consisting of Sarah Goldrainer, Liz Pepe, Kristen French, Nicky Schmidlein and Emmy Potter.  Big ups to Hourglass Tavern for letting us hold the show there for the 4th time. Give them a visit if you’re in NYC. News includes: Drew Goddard will direct X-Force, Colin Trevorrow is not directing Star Wars IX anymore, Harley Quinn’s 25th anniversary will have her drawn onto classic Batman covers, Futurama returns as a radio play, the Doctor Who spin-off Class has officially been cancelled and the Guy Ritchie directed live-action Aladdin casts Billy Magnussen as Prince Anders (ugh).

Michael Emerson teases some of his upcoming work on Arrow, talks about his love of the classics and relays some interesting fan interactions. Erica Schultz tells us about her new work Twelve Devils Dancing and other projects. Jonathan Baylis gives the scoop on the new issue of So Buttons…, his autobio comic anthology. And Slanty Eyed Mama update us on what’s happening with them and give us an epic improv spoken word accompanied by violin performance!

Comic News Insider Episode 407 – A Conversation with Frankie Boyle

Comic News Insider: Episode 407 is now available for free download! Click on the link or get it through iTunes! Sponsored by Dynamic Forces.

Jimmy sat down at lunch with comedian/comic book writer Frankie Boyle when he was in London for Kapow Con. Good pal/fellow podcaster Barry Nugent (Geek Syndicate) came along for the ride to join in the fun. Frankie is known for his “controversial/in your face” comedy so there is some bad language throughout. However, he’s a pleasant fellow who knows his comic books well! The guys chat about Frankie’s comic in Clint Magazine called Rex Royd, growing up reading comic books, his last comedy tour, his books and overall career. Really great discussion! Jimmy ends with a couple of profile questionairres to sum it all up. This episode is also a crossover with Stated Magazine and will appear on that website some time in the near future. Thanks to Frankie for his time and for lunch! Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!

Kryptographik Episode 30

Kryptographik is a trans-continental podcast featuring Brian (in the U.S.) and Damian (in Australia), providing news, reviews, commentary and interviews covering horror, dark fantasy and science-fiction.

In our 30th episode, we’re joined by Barry Nugent (in the U.K.) from the Geek Syndicate podcast to discuss his how his novel FALLEN HEROES started out being self-published through Lulu.com and has since been optioned for adaptations into both a graphic novel and a TV series.

We also discuss how and why changes are made when stories are adapted to other media, past and upcoming adaptations of Sherlock Holmes, and our opinions about The War of the Worlds (starring Tom Cruise) and Indiana Jones & the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
