Pocus Hocus Issue 4 with Allen Dunford

Or, you know, talking to Allen Dunford about Pocus Hokus. That’s why he’s back to talk about Issue 4, which you can back now on Kickstarter.

Head Cases with Lesly Julien

You ever sit around noticing people’s bags and wonder what’s inside them? Turn your head to take a look even? Maybe even push them open a bit with your foot.

Of course not, me either. But I certainly haven’t seen anything too weird while I wasn’t looking in there. Definitely not a human head collection. Who would even think of a thing like that? Lesly Julien would. And he’d tell you about it too, like maybe in a comic called Head Cases where you get to see the heads as well.

Producing the End of the World with Gary Proudley

It’s the end of the world and there’s nothing better to do than to read some comics about the end of the world in many different interpretations of the phrase. Somehow it’s exactly what I need right now.

Listen in as Gary Proudley comes to talk about the editing side and writing side of putting the anthology Producing the End of the World together, and lightly threatens me with Australian wildlife.

Godfoe Universe Appolyon 20XX with Josh Adams

The future is scary. It seems it’s always been scary. Remember when we would see dates like 20XX and know it was a stand in for some far off time when the world would be a totally different place? Yep those days are long gone. Heck it’s the year 20XX right now!

Enter Josh Adams, artist behind the Godfoe Universe series soon to be published by legacy Comix. Listen in as we take a look behind the scenes of this new comic universe that should have you pretty excited. Or scared out of your mind. Definitely one of those two.

Batman Vengeance with Matt and Thad (Making Nerds Cringe)

Batman is one of the most well know superheroes around despite the fact that he’s not really a superhero when you break the term down. Don’t care, still love him. And that little used fact in games where he’s a pretty good detective.

Good thing we have Matt and Thad from Making Nerds Cringe here to help unravel the mystery of Batman Vengeance. Listen in as we take a look at this Batman the Animated Series (?) inspired game and all the fun that goes with it.

Spider-Man Arcade with The Well Red Mage (Mage Cast)

Sometimes you just can’t help but take a look at something you missed on purpose. Like here, where I wouldn’t normally look at arcade only releases. But it’s Spider-Man and someone asked about it and who am I to let the fans down?

Listen in as The Well Red Mage from Mage Cast joins the show to take a look at the Spider-Man arcade game that so many of us missed growing up. Which sucks because we could have had some more 4 player action going.

Renfield: Visions of Madness

Anyone into the Dracula mythology, or wanting to get into it, needs to check this one out. It probably needs that connection for the reader to get the full effect out of it, but it’s a great story that has the blessing of the Stoker family.

Men in Black: The Series with Tristan Johnson (It’s (Probably) Not Aliens/Step Back History)

We’re just not going to escape aliens at all are we? You know, for a comic that I’m not sure even existed sometimes there sure are a ton of games to go with it. It certainly helps that there’s a spin off movie (that’s vaguely related) with a spin off cartoon (that’s vaguely related to the movie but oddly kind of closer to the comics).

Yup we’re talking about Men in Black again. This time with Tristan Johnson from It’s (Probably) Not Aliens and Step Back History as we take a look at Men in Black: The Series for Game Boy Color.

Wolverine’s Rage with Didge (Geekset Podcast)

Wolverine is everywhere and there’s nothing we can do about it because he’s popular and makes money for Marvel and why wouldn’t they keep using a character that’s popular partly because he’s used so much and always in front of consumer’s faces?

That’s what we explore this week with Didge from Geekset Podcast. Listen in as we discuss the prevalence of Wolverine and some surprising omissions from the villains in the Game Boy Color game Wolverine’s Rage.

Be sure to visit Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men to see how you can help support people effected by Florida’s recent passing of HB1557, commonly known as the “don’t say gay” bill.

Blade Maidens with Zoe Tunnell

Sword adventures are always cool. Especially when you actually get character development stuff with it and great art and a wonderfully written story and looks let’s face it we’re looking at a cool comic today that you can still catch relatively early and I’m just excited to get to share it with y’all.

Good thing we have Zoe Tunnell, writer of Blade Maidens, to help calm me down. Except that’s a big lie because she’s super excited to tell y’all about it as well. So yeah, this is going to be fun.

Blade 2 with Adam Reck (Battle of the Atom)

Movie tie in games get fun. Do you have someone play the movie and they know everything that should be happening? Or do you have a movie tie in game that tries to go beyond the movie and risk making something that people don’t like? And does it matter if it’s a super successful everyone in the world has seen it movie vs more of a niche film?

We’re taking a stab at those questions and more when Adam Reck from Battle of the Atom stops by the show to talk Blade 2 for the PS2 and Xbox.
