It took some time but… Yay! Duplicity has been published to Comixology and is now available for sale! It seems like an age ago when I first submitted this book to the Comixology marketplace (mid-September, actually) but the wait is finally over! Duplicity is an experimental self-contained short story that clocks in at 42 pages for only $1.99. It’s the story of two men on death row, sharing their final day on earth together… With a twist. I don’t want to give it away if you haven’t already seen the book. So, take a look at Duplicity for less than two bucks! Buy... View Article

Episode 68: Lumberjanes and Ei8ht

January 11, 2016

It’s 2016! yay. So, Nick and Brock are back at the normal schedule. That is to say, they will be doing 3 back to back weeks of this comic book podcast to kick off the year. Then, Brock takes a vacation. Then, who the hell knows? Kicking off this very not 2015 year is a trip to summer camp with BOOM!’s (weird to type an exclamation point with an apostrophe after it) Lumberjanes. Dabbling in children’s comics is a rare dalliance for this duo of wonky, pedantic, reviewers, but they do manage to give positive notes when they aren’t spending... View Article

Time Dick progress

January 4, 2016

I’m 60% complete with the first chapter of Time Dick! The first chapter has been a learning experience. I’ve tried to mix up my style quite a bit, change my inking tool(s), and adapt my coloring style to a new format. It has been a… challenge. But overall, I’m quite happy with the results and remain on track to have the first chapter done before the end of January. After that point, I immediately flip over to chapter two and once that is complete, the first chapter will be available for purchase (only $.99!) on Comixology. So keep checking back... View Article

Episode 67: Best of 2015 and The Force Awakens

Brock Beauchamp
December 28, 2015

In this week’s comic book podcast, Nick and Brock reflect upon the glory and pain that was the year 2015. They pick their favorite and least favorite books and fumble around with words about each for a few minutes before deciding to once again talk about Star Wars. You see, like nearly everyone else on the planet, they can’t stop talking about the new Disneyfied and JJ Abrams-powered movie, The Force Awakens. Did they like the movie? Of course they did, dummy… But it’s far from a perfect film and they discuss it at length.

Episode 66: Prez and Heathen

Star Wars marathons can wreck a person. Both Nick and Brock had one this weekend but Brock was smart and broke it up into a couple days. Nick started having a few drinks during the prequels recording episode early the next morning was, perhaps, ill advised. However, the show must go on! This week, Star Wars kicks off the show and you could bet your Boba Fett boxers that it will come up a few times in the next few podcasts. This doesn’t really need to be said but, wow, the prequels don’t age well. DC surprised both our pedantic... View Article

Episode 65: Alex + Ada and Captain Macbastard

December 7, 2015

The holidays always throw a wrench in the recording schedule but Nick and Brock could pass up talking about the dark spectacle that is the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer. Put that right up against the Captain America: Civil War trailer and the contrast between DC and Marvel’s approaches is very clear. Near future stories are fascinating for Nick. Today’s feature review, Alex + Ada from Image Comics, should be right in that wheelhouse. The common sci-fi genre of humans experimenting and coming into conflict with artificial intelligence still has a wealth of territory to explore. Does this... View Article
