Last week’s all star crew of Lorraine Cink, Kevin Conn and Jon Hoche stay on to record the Best of 2011 show! It’s a lengthy one but so much fun! Along with Jimmy, they bring their favorite picks in comic books, TV, films, videogames, podcasts, and more. They also discuss some of the biggest stories of the year including DC’s New 52 and the rise of digital comics. Plus, they briefly chat about the end of the Smallville TV show and Harry Potter films. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
Mike is back with a vengeance. And it is the month of horror so of course that means a discussion of Blade Runner and Other Sci Fi awesomeness. Horror is finally gotten to and a rousing debate about how much Nightmare on Elm Street 2 either sucks or is awesome ensues. And this week TJ does find the ability to multitask and the comic section lives. Avengers, OMAC, Action Comics, and Pigs are all discussed. Sorry for the short intro, but i feel it does the job. Enjoy!

The boys dip their toes into some intellectual waters this episode.
Topics of discussion: revisionist history in regards to Cold War aggressors; Television, Comic Books, and the difference between utilizing the strengths of one medium in regards to another and just straight up copying one medium to another and not respecting how one audience experiences it opposed to the other; and that age old debate between Diversity and Xenophobia in the comics medium.
Going deep this week.
