The podcast wife Erica Schultz returns to join Jimmy in studio for some more New York Comic Con coverage! They both forget how to speak throughout this episode but get their groove back near the end. Plus, Jimmy’s 6 year old nephew Maximus and 5 year old niece Chloe record their reviews of the new film Book of Life. At NYCC, Jimmy chatted with Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Archie Comics CCO) about all things Archie as well as his impressive writing resume in theater (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), TV (Glee, Big Love) and film (Carrie). He also sat down with one of his new favorite writers Vera Greentea about having her own publishing company, the comics she’s written and her love of baking (still waiting on those baked goods!).

We’re on vacation this week and since we don’t want to leave our new friends at The Comics Podcast Network without an update, we’ve loaded one of our recent debate shows. Don’t be sad, we’ll be back next week with an all new show.
With Black History Month coming to a close, we decided to rate the best and worst black characters from comic books, TV and movies. We also look at the history of white characters turned black. As usual, arguments ensue. Listen in!
Do you agree or disagree with our picks? Head over to our podcast Facebook page and let us know.
Shawn and special guest Hannibal Tabu (komplicated.com) discuss the lack of Black comic book writers in the Big 2 comic publishers (Marvel and DC Comics), race in comics, the comics market, and the Black Super Hero Algorithm; then Shawn has a conversation with Joey Aulisio as they go in deep about Red Tails, the subject of race within the movie industry, and Haywire.
Enjoy, and rep for Philo.
