The Halloween issue! In honor of the season Mike and Shawn trade recommendations for scary comics, from the oeuvre of comics legend Mike Mignola to Joe R. Lansdale’s Hex and its legal issues, Alan Moore’s seminal run on Swamp Thing, 70s pulp soap Tomb of Dracula and Jason Martin & Bill McKay’s criminally underrated Night of the 80s Undead from Action Lab. Also, Mike talks the new All New, All Different Marvel re-launch and Shawn shouts his love for Brian K. Vaughan & Cliff Chiang’s Paper Girls to the rooftops. All this while imbibing Ninkasi Brewing’s Dawn of the Red India Red Ale and Sleigh’r Imperial Pumpkin Ale – watch them derail the show about 3/4 of the way through!
Mike tells us all about his trip to Image Expo in San Francisco. Lots of new stuff coming out from the likes of Alex De Campi, Skottie Young, Scott Snyder, Brian K. Vaughan and more! Oh yeah, and we start the episode with Gram Solo Wellman’s standup comedy routine!
