In this issue of the show we drink Firestone Brewery’s Pale 31 and Speakeasy’s Metropolis Lager while we talk more about former guest Larime Taylor and his brilliant book A Voice in the Dark, which could use a little help from our viewers! Also, science Officer Sara offers up Buzzfeed’s list of top indie comics – which leads to a discussion on just what exactly ‘indie’ is. From we go into Bill Sienkiewicz’s Stray Toasters and Paul Gulacy’s art on Master of Kung Fu. Mike rounds it out by giving us the secret origin of the GIJOE franchise.
In Issue 12 the Drinking w/ Comics crew welcomes guest host Jessica Kinni! Jessica schools Mike and Shawn on Gluten free beer, Doctor Who and Reality TV. Meanwhile, several delicious pints of Lost Coast Brewery’s Downtown Brown Ale sufficiently spur Mike to deliver the lowdown on just how variant covers really work. Other topics include Joss & Jed Whedon’s Dollhouse, Archie from Riverdale’s heroic death and Rick Remender and Greg Tocchini’s new book Low. Oh, and speaking of RR, the ongoing drinking game that revolves around the mention of his name goes haywire!
Shawn and Mike tease Joe.Baxter’s secret identity before going on to discuss Goose Island Beer, the new Silver Surfer and Elektra series from Marvel, the triumphant return of David Lapham’s Stray Bullets. Also Mike introduces Shawn to Richard Starkings’ Elephantmen! Oh yeah, and Producer Steve Simon stops by to tell us about the new show Geek Cred! All this and more, despite some S.H.I.E.L.D*.-related technical difficulties which are quickly overcome!
In Drinking With Comics issue #1 Joe mans the cameras while Mike and Shawn discuss the return of Miracle Man, the joys of Matt Fraction’s Hawkeye series, the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie, Terry Moore’s Rachel Rising and of course, Rick Remender. We get into a bunch of other stuff too, all while the three of us enjoy a delicious six pack of Hoegaarden beer.
