This week, I talk with Russell Brettholtz, the creator of an excellent comic called Side-Kicked, which was recently released in trade paperback and in individual issues on comixology.com. Russell discusses how a real-life experience led him to create this title, how he brought his team together, and also how this book examines what makes a person a hero and how a sidekick compares to those who take the lead in saving the day. To buy his book, you can order it through your local comics shop, Amazon.com, comixology.com or at the publisher’s website, darbypop.com. Be sure to listen in and discover this terrific tale that’s worth your attention and support!
ep 43: Jim and Eric get together on Halloween Night, but kind of ignore that fact to talk about DC Comics as usual. They go over all the DC Comics News, Comic books and even get to talk about Vic Sage’s porn addiction, Mythbrawl and why Batman is the most selfish god of them all. While they may not be huge fans of every book they talk about, they keep it real like the Man of Steel. I’m not sure what that means, but I like the sound of it!

Lucky Episode 13! Recorded on 2/15/2015. Erik & James discuss one new book (Thor #5), one from last week (Ant-Man #2), one from two weeks ago (Deadpool #41 that was cut from Episode 11 due to an audio mishap), and the collection of a series from 5 years ago (Doctor Voodoo: Avenger of the Supernatural #1-5). They really get into it about Thor… one loved it, one hated it. You can guess who fell on which side of that debate. Also, Erik breaks up with Savage Dragon, and our heroes cast comic book movies that will never be.
