Burnt Weiners C2E2 2011 Special

Chicago welcomes C2E2 2011 and the the guys were in attendance to check it out. They discuss the change in venue, the layout of the show, plenty of the stuff they saw, some of the people they met, the parties they attended and the thousands of faces and how the Henchmen rocked them all!

In our opinion C2E2 was a huge success for any fan wanting a well organized show and great convention experience. Plan for C2E2 2012 people, because we will be there!

Editors Note – Oni Press was indeed there, and was the 3rd booth Bo and John stopped by on Friday, as we picked up a few books from them! DOH!

Burnt Weiners Bitchin Bo Fiction Episode 001 Superboy

Burnt Weiners Episode 062 Wormworld Saga

Checking out a webcomic that has taken the internet world by storm, the Weiners gather around the computer, hold hands and plunge into the lush, vibrant world of Wormworld Saga. Well, we are hoping what they were holding was hands . . .


Steege looks into D&D Dark Sun (IDW) and plays a bit of Fable 3 in his spare time. Wolverine #1000 (Marvel) has some war stories that Bo digs the hell out of before he then dives into the ongoing tale from the red planet Warlord of Mars (Dynamite Entertainment).

Bullseye is figuring out Frank Castle in Punisher Max #10 (Marvel) and John is eating it up as well as the story of magic returning to the real world in Magus #2 (12 Gauge). Weed is loving what he is reading in Birds of Prey #9 (DC) and Heroes For Hire #3 (Marvel), and always, has to throw a shoutout to Unwritten (Vertigo).

Burnt Weiners Episode 060 Star Wars Darth Vader And The Lost Command #1

Darth Vader is center stage in the new Star Wars comic from Dark Horse. Will his brutal methods allow him to both punish Jedi’s and do what the Empire needs? And will John’s autoerotic asphyxiation fan fiction of the masked villian be accepted by the Star Wars community?

Steege checks out Kick-Puncher from the Community Season 1 DVD Set. Excitement is in the air, as Weed tells us that Skullkickers (Image) finally includes some kicks to the skulls!

Bo brings up Magneto (Marvel) which sparks a discussion about the origins of characters, before diving deep into the Robots Anthology (Accent UK). Doug TenNaple has snared John in his trap of awesome comics with Creature Tech (Image) and the online comic Ratfist (Ratfist.com)!

Burnt Weiners Episode 059 Wolverine And Jubilee #1

Kathy Immonen and Phil Noto bring back the mall-going Jubilee in her new Vampire infested persona, who is receiving help and guidance from the most sage-like mutant in the history of the Marvel Universe! No, not Deadpool, you fool, it is Wolverine! Did the Weiners enjoy this particular venture into X?

Bo quantum leap slide(er)s into Doorways #3 (IDW) from George R.R. Martin before talking about Batman #706 (DC). Steege finally catches up with the rest of the the nerd kingdom with Final Fantasy XIII.

John shows how much he loves boys (what?) with his gushing on(double what?) on The Boys #50 (Dynamite), then checks out a new vision of the underworld with Nancy In Hell (Image). Weed once again loves what Brightest Day (DC) is bringing to the table, and bids goodbye to Season 8 with Buffy #40 (Dark Horse).

Burnt Weiners – Jon Price Interview – Magus – H2Awesome

We had the opportunity and the absolute pleasure to speak to Jon Price about his current comic MAGUS from 12 Gauge comics, which is a wonderful tale in which magic returns to our world in our modern age. Written by Jon Price and artwork from Rebekah Isaacs, this is one the Weiners recommend you pull off the shelf or get a digital copy of!

Jon also has time to tell us a booze story, a little bit about his band H2Awesome and how John from our show pronounces “Magus” like a fool!

More information on Magus can be found at 12gaugecomics.com

You can stalk Jon at @jonsprice on Twitter

Burnt Weiners Episode 056 Batman Dark Night #1

Batman? The Weiners have been wondering who the hell this Batman guy was they have been hearing so much about (forgetting they read one of the titles about a month back), so they decide to check out the new series by David Finch! Does this Dark Knight hold up (to the Bounty Quicker Picker Upper challenge)?

Bo crafts some Bitching Bo Fiction with his take on Dark Wolverine #4 (Marvel) before talking about Carnage #2 (Marvel), as Steege is falling deeper into the world that is Fallout: New Vegas with the new DLC.

John thinks the current Bullseye bowls a perfect football goal (and is terrible at sports analogies), while Weed gushes a bit more about the Angel Illyria (IDW) series.

Burnt Weiners Episode 053 Kull & The Hate Witch #1

Kull shows his hand and discloses his strong dislike of witches with his new series from Dark Horse. The Weiners take a close look and examine the ramnifications this may have on the acceptanceof witches into today’s society . . . and have a poop joke or two.

Bo is checking out severe hallucinations and The Green Hornet (DYnamite), while Steege checks out some Asassin’s Creed, Dungeons and Dragons (IDW), Supergod (Avatar), Fallout New Vegas and a tremendous book about chickens called Elmer (honestly, it is really good).
