A bunch a really good movies are discussed: The Kite Runner, Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, Some Dungeons and Dragons Flick Mike watched, Drag Me to Hell, A Haunting in Connecticut. Then the boys get all philosophical on two movies that really no one should ever get philosophical about ever: Doomsday and They Live. The Musical Infatuation lives as we hear a god awful indie song by Kevin but since it is about Steve McQueen it automatically becomes cool, Kamelot from Mike, and Dream Theater from TJ. Comics Round out this table of geekery with: Stumptown, House of Mystery, and Godland.

Comic Book Pitt #40 – Retconned!

deadpool 900

Listen to this episode

One day in October when we were recording episode #40, the Scarlet Witch appeared in the Comic Book Pitt and simply whispered “No more podcasts.”

We floated between realities until we were finally retconned back into existence in our own universe. For us it was mere minutes, but apparently we were gone for 24 days.

That original 40th episode is still floating out there…somewhere…

The cover scans for this episode can be found on the CBP Flickr site.

The music in this episode is by Ike & Tina Turner.
