Alternate Reality – Episode 390

*So I don’t know why but there was some static that was recorded during this last episode.  We have no idea why or where it came from as I didn’t discover it till we were posting the episode.  Might be a short in the mic cables.  Not sure.  We’ll try to figure out why this is happening.  Sorry about that.*

Alternate Reality – Episode #390

We’re back baby!  Alternate Reality was gone last week due exclusively to the fact that Charlie couldn’t make it back from Heroes Con in time.  But after a week hiatus to give Charlie a chance to sober up we got more comics to talk about this week.

This week, in order to earn a little small publisher/creator owned cred with Chris Partin, Charlie is talking about Skyward from Image Comics.  Charlie regales us with the awesome Zero-G premis of this story.  Then Jon and Charlie round out the rest of the episode talking about a slate of DC and Marvel books.

Lastly, Charlie fills us in on all the hijinks that occurred during his time in Charlotte, North Carolina at Heroes Con.  Charlie even has a special gift for Jon.

Alternate Reality; bringing you the best every week in comic book podcasting!!!

Comic Timing – Episode 163: NYCC 2014 Interviews


Here we are with all the interviews that were conducted at the 2014 New York Comic Con. This episode is dedicated to the memory of Jeremy Dale, who passed away suddenly last week at the young age of 34. Jeremy not only was a friend of the show but a personal friend of mine. Without Jerem’y smiling face at the end of an artist alley aisle, the comic industry is worse off for it. If you would like to help support Jeremy’s wife Kelly and the family as a whole in their time of need, please do check out Jeremy’s GoFundMe page. It would be greatly appreciated.

Back to the show itself, here is a full list of everyone who appears on this episode:
