Comic Timing – Episode 121: The 2011 Supershow Recording

Part Two of the Supershow recording is out!!! This is the one we always look forward to here. Saturday night at the con, Ian rustles up whoever is in the mood to talk and we go completely off the cuff, drink some beers and have a damn good time for two hours or so. This year was no exception. This also means that the views expressed in this episode, negative or positive, are not necessarily the views expressed by any of the individuals involved outside of this here recording. This time we are joined by Julian Lytle of Ants, Martheus Wade of Jetta: Tales of the Toshigawa, Shawn Pryor of the PKD Media Blackbox and Action Lab, Jon Carroll of the Carroll Chronicles, Dean Stahl of Headlocks and Headaches, Bill English of Sounded Good on Paper, Raph Soohoo of Geeks Unite! and Chad Burdette AKA Unknown Fanboy. We talk everything from the show itself to Third and Spruce, vanilla sundaes, Power Rangers, wrestling and Captain Planet Swamp Thing. Totally worth every minute, people.
