Reviews: The Other Dead #1, The Powerpuff Girls #1, Rat Queens #1, Sex Criminals #1

It’s the epic 500th episode recording and we do it live with an audience at The Hourglass Tavern (373 w. 46th St.) in New York City! We’ve sang for years and have teased a musical since 2005…and this will be the closest you’ll get. Many a musical number and so many special guests! Michael Emerson (Person of Interest, Lost), Carrie Preston (True Blood, The Good Wife), Veronica Taylor (Pokemon), Kevin Maguire (Justice League), ChrisCross (Bloodshot, Katana), Rafael Kayanan (NCIS: LA, Conan), Simon Fraser (Nikolai Dante), Michelle Mozes (Blue Streak), Qui Nguyen (Vampire Cowboys Theatre Co.), and Heidi MacDonald (The Beat). News includes: lightsabers are going to be real, Marvel teases many new titles to be announced at NYCC, DC based TV shows Gotham andConstantine are on the way and Dynamite Entertainment launches toys/games line. The CNI chorus (Patrick Garrigan, Salli Garrigan, Amy Wolk, Kristen French and Erick Pinnick) opens the show with a rocking tune. Jimmy and Kristen sing a duet as Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, a special voice mail from Avengers 2, and Jimmy almost spoils Breaking Bad in song. Many thanks to the rotating co-hosts Erica Schultz (the Podcast Wife), Emily Edwards and Kristin Garay. Of course, none of this would be possible without Producer Joe Gonzalez running everything. As always, listener feedback, Top 3 and more. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!
