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!

Sidekickcast Episode #47 – Beards and Mountains

SidekickCast Episode #47 - Beards and Mountains

Due to Indianna Jones-style-globe-trotting, with the red line and everything, this week’s episode is a little late but as always Gavin and Dan are on top Sidekickcast form. We actually talk about comic book matters for once with some CLiNT rundown, Alan Moore character assassination and a look at The Dark Tower adaptation.

In Stack Attack this week we look at Scarlet #2, Shadowland #3, Daredevil #510, True Blood #1 & 2, X-Force: Sex & Violence #3, Avengers #4 and New Avengers #3.

Dan is seriously closing in on Gavin in Secrets and Lies, the comic book news quiz with a twist but can he keep it up?! The Dig This! choice this week comes from Sidekick favourite Chris Barker in the form of Blade of the Immortal vol.1. Don’t forget to listen past the outro music for our usual brand of comedy cock-ups.
