Hey all, I will be at Fall ComiCon this weekend (formerly known as FallCon), peddling my wares to geek nation. As usual, I will be offering prints, original art, and my comic book, Duplicity. Due to this being a one-day convention, if you’d like to purchase an original sketch from me, please come by my table as early as possible so I can make sure you get on the docket before it fills for the day. As always, I’m looking forward to another fantastic MCBA event and hope to see you all there on Saturday! Once again, Fall ComiCon will... View Article

Episode 80: Concrete

September 19, 2016

Having covered most of the news they cared about in episode 79, in this episode Brock and Nick blather about random news, origins of Marvel comics and eventually just to annoy each other. They did fit in a review, though. This is another trip in the somewhat way back machine. Before millennials were born is probably “way back” at this point. When looking at the history of comics, though, a story like Concrete by Paul Chadwick is how, what we call, independent comics really started to break into major publishing. This story about a writer turned neigh invincible block of... View Article

A new episode! Yes! Brock and Nick are still doing this comic book podcast. One thing is to be expected, when summer comes around, Brock will be a little scarce. In the winter, he has all the time in the world. They did bother to review a comic book while catching up on the various geeky news they missed. Evidently, Brock has friends. One of them is also a comic book creator. This week is just a single issue review with Moving Bodies from Chance Wyatt. Brock calls him Chance Oberlander, or told Nick this when he asked. So, Nick...

Episode 78: Preacher

The time has come. Brock and Nick have put off this book for long enough and it’s time for them to talk about it. Preacher. This podcast does not exist without Preacher, unless Brock found another co-host that likes comics and happened to name it the same thing, but Preacher is what got Nick into comics. There is no way for Nick to do proper justice to this book but seeing as it has a show (finally), it cannot be ignored. So, if you haven’t read Preacher, do so now. If you want a snarky tearing apart of this book,... View Article

Episode 77: Lost at Sea

June 6, 2016

Brock and Nick finally have a podcast in person! Ok, this is probably more of a novelty to them than anyone else, but it is the first time they’ve actually recorded in the same since they started this comic book podcast. You’d think this would mean a longer recording, but, for some reason, they only reviewed one book this week, Bryan Lee O’Malley’s pre-Scott Pilgrim, soul-searching Lost at Sea. They also had to talk about Captain America: Civil War, because you need the hot take of 2 indie comic reviewers that finally get around to talking about it several weeks... View Article
