Comic Timing – Episode 180: Hydra’s Civil Rebirth


Just like DC Comics’ worst kept spoiler in a while, we’re back! On today’s episode, Brent and Ian are joined by the Raph himself, Raphael Soohoo to discuss Captain America: Civil War, Bendis’ Civil War II, Free Comic Book Day and what comics were grabbed at said Free Comic Book Day, DC Comics: Rebirth #1, DC Rebirth in general, the whole Captain America Hydra kerfuffle, Comixology Unlimited, and more! More includes how comics have changed in the past ten years since the show started, by the way. That was fun!

The PKD Black Box – Episode #38: The Warrock-M.A.S.K.-Eliopolous Super Show!

This weeks “massive edition” of The PKD Black Box starts off with Shawn having a conversation with MC Adam Warrock (aka Eugene Ahn) about his new album “The War For Infinity,” the “West Coast Avengers Mixtape,” hip-hop & geekdom and even rappers that can communicate with dolphins. Then Jason Wood from the 11 O’ Clock Comics podcast stops by to talk about college life, Busta Rhymes, and everything you need to know about M.A.S.K. as he and Shawn go all nostaligic. Last, but definitely not least co-host Jon Carroll stops by as he and Shawn have a solid interview with talented creator Chris Eliopolous (Lockjaw & The Pet Avengers) as we discuss all-ages comics, the art of lettering, why having talent at times can be overrated, and the hard work that’s necessary to make comics.

This episode is so massive that the next PKD Black Box will not air until November 10th. In it’s place for the next two weeks will be the Tales From The Attic podcast.

Shout-outs to DJ Ruckus Roboticus, Cookiehead Jenkins & the Pontiac Fiero.

Enjoy! (The PKD Black Box is a explicit podcast because at times we cuss, FYI.)
