This Grawlix Bytes Jesse and Randy try something a little different. A commentary track for the first episode of the late ’90s HBO animated series ‘Todd McFarlane’s Spawn‘. Bust out your baggy jeans and sister’s stolen black makeup because it’s about to get dark, edgy, gritty… it’s about to get ’90s! The boys also discuss Mad Max: Fury Road (because why not) and more after the commentary.
In this weeks episode Dave sits down with the artist behind Broken Icon Comic’s Graver, Nick Wentland. Graver is the story of pro-wrestler turned demon hunter, G-Raver. Originally slated to be an interview with the entire creative team, due to technical difficulties this ended up just being Dave and Nick. But the soldiered on and had a lot of fun talking Graver, comics and all thins Broken Icon. So sit back and enjoy!

This week Dave sits down with 2 great guests, our first 3rd time guest James Maddox and artist Todd Beistel. They are the creative team behind Broken Icon Comics “The Horror Show”. On the surface The Horror show appears to be another Zombie book, but this being a book from James Maddox things are not always what they seem. A great read and a great interview. With bonus Dave and Todd geek out over Agents of SHIELD. So sit back and enjoy!
A startling change to the format of the show is mooted by an emailer before the inevtible digression that was current at the time but now seems dated and “like, so last year.” But after that, Michel and Andrew explore a Marvel that was on the cusp on the 90’s as their look at the adventures of the Cosmically-Enhanced Spider-Man concludes.
Did Batman REALLY kill The Joker at the end of The Killjng Joke? Is Brian Singer’s return to the X-Men franchise really a good thing? Do Andrew and Micheal evan care about Ben Affleck? 2 of these questions will be answered before Andrew delves deep into his comic book collection to produce a Spider-Man crossover so epic, so lauded, so jam packed with important STATUS QUO changing events, it will be hailed as a classic from here on in – THE AMAZING, SPECTACUALR, COSMIC SPIDER-MAN. Yes, Spider-Man gets involed in the ACTS OF VENGEANCE, a story so unimportant he never even finds out what’s going on! But who cares about all that? DOOM is in the house. So I think it would be in all your interests to listen. If nothing else, there are some good promos.

Well, we already tackled the underappreciated talents in comics, so now it’s only natural that we discuss… THE COMPLETELY OVERRATED TALENTS IN COMICS!!
Join hosts Scott H. Gardner and Michael R. Bailey, along with guests Jose Rivera and Chris Honeywell, for a fun and (mostly) light-hearted discussion (with a peppering of good ol’ fashioned fanboy ranting) of some of the most overblown, overhyped, and overinflated comic book writers and artists EVER. Who makes the list? Listen to find out, lazyass!!
The boys are back and talking movies, comics, and dick troubles. On this episode you will learn who uses the cheapest binder of all the comic companies, what game not to play with a two year old, and why the Nightmare on Elm Street remake is not as horrible as others are making it out to be.

Then it is All DC Comics all the time with discussions on War of the Supermen 0 & 1, Brave and the Bold 33, House of Mystery, Garrison #1, Batgirl 9.
