It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And no, this isn’t really a reference to much mistltoeing and hearts that are glowing. It’s better than that. It’s time for
Andy and Derek’s end-of-the-year top ten favorites episode!
The Two Guys with PhDs (who talk about comics) like to end the year by highlighting their favorite titles of the past twelve months. These could be ongoing series, limited runs or miniseries, one-shots, trades, original graphic novels, webcomics, or archival collections. So for this week’s episode, Derek and Andy each choose their favorite ten comics from 2013 and then share that list with one another. They don’t necessarily rank them in any order — although Andy does reveal the #1 title on his list — and neither knows of the other’s ten favorites before they record the podcast. As such, the Guys not only have a great time discussing the year’s best comics, but also in discovering what each other feels is truly his favorite. There are a few overlaps between Andy and Derek’s choices, but even more significantly, there are some big surprises in each one’s list!
While the Title of the episode is Gaiman Tastes like Bacon, The subject of the show is Alan Moore. A surprise Nuptial is announced and this is an invitation you need to see. Our comic fans will rejoice as a lot of them are discussed. Ostrander’s Suicide Squad mini from a few years ago rears its ugly head, Hack/Slash is ready to lop it off, And Dead@17 is ready to show you her tits. We look into that Crazy Curmudgeon, Alan Moore in depth including Watchmen, V for Vendetta, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Top 10, WildCATS, and much, much more.

In this classic and much more free-form show, The Freaks discuss the teasers and trailers for such then-upcoming films as Frank Miller’s “The Spirit”, “TR2N” (now retitled “TRON: Legacy”), “Terminator: Salvation” and the remake of “The Day The Earth Stood Still” among others.
Chris throws one of his best on-air fits ever all about garage sale etiquette and Scott invents the phrase “hobby raping”. Add some Firesign Theatre, the Justice League roll call, and a trip to the Freak Museum and you it’s easy to see why this is one of the Freaks’ most beloved episodes.
The song featured in the Freak Museum segment is “Our Song” by Roger Waters from the soundtrack to the movie “The Body”.
