Episode 71: Transfusion and Golem

Nick Hemsing
February 22, 2016

Well, Brock didn’t die in a jungle in Central America, despite Nick’s secret desire to have the ultimate party story of having one of his friends die to a collar bomb. As it turns out, Nicaragua is a pretty safe place to visit at the moment so Nick is going to have to resort to buying Brock tickets to border towns in Mexico. These aren’t usually on people’s vacation lists, so Nick will have to drug Brock and tell him he’s going to meet the mayor of Scotchtown who will give him a very heavy Hawaiian Lei . . ....

Episode 70: C.O.W.L. and Sithrah

Nick Hemsing
February 1, 2016

A new week, a new comic book podcast. Before Brock travels to Nicaragua and is ultimately kidnapped and ransomed back to his family, the CCCP crew decided to record one final podcast! They talk about yet another Image comic – C.O.W.L. – which started slowly and built momentum through the first volume. They also took a look at a new mobile comic platform – Webtoon – and read Jason Brubaker’s latest comic, Sithrah. If you’re not familiar with Brubaker, Nick and Brock talked about his first comic, reMIND, way back in episode ten. In other more comic book-y news, Brock’s... View Article

Episode 69: Wool

In this week’s comic book podcast, Nick and Brock talk Wool, the adaptation of Hugh Howey’s series of short stories. Walking into the book with zero expectations, both left the experience pleasantly surprised. They also talk about trailers (again) because, in case you haven’t noticed, it seems a week no longer passes without a new comic book movie trailer being released to the public. This week’s victim is the new Suicide Squad trailer. Does DC have the chops to pull off a silly, fun comic book movie? In other more comic book-y news, Brock’s short story comic, Duplicity, is now available... 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

Brock Beauchamp
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
