A show about comics, small press comics, comic strips, and anything else on the periphery that I think you might enjoy hearing about!

This episode is continued because it just got too long! Derek Coward of the Comic Book Noise family of podcasts joins us for this gabfest.

Although I'm the only one that has yet seen the Dr. Strange animated feature, that didn't stop us from talking about the movie, and Dr. Strange in general, for over 20 minutes!

I had the chance to see "The Thief and the Cobbler: Recobbled" a reconstruction of a masterpiece by famed animator Richard Williams. I rave about that for another 17+ minutes!

We get down to the BOP! (the Bottom Of Our Piles).

Jon's still away on vacation (or was at least, when we recorded this on Sunday) so our good friend Derek Coward of the Deliberate Noise Network joined us for this episode. The show went so long I decided to experiment with splitting it in two. PLEASE let us know what you think of the idea!

In Part A of episode 80 we discuss the Noisey Awards, the League of Comic Book Podcasts, and the Comic Book Podcast Wiki, with their creator, Derek. Not to mention all the other podcasts that Derek does, or hosts!

I had a chance to listen to two new (new for me) shows that are fellow members of the League of Comic Book Podcasts, Just Another Fanboy, and Fanboy Face-Off.

Lene Taylor of the I Read Comics Podcast just did a show with her "big brother" reminiscing about their younger days of reading and collecting comics. Although I'm a big fan of I Read Comics and enjoy EVERY show, this one, in particular, struck a chord with me.

I visited with Kwip, Happy Jack, and Dr. Sexy of the N3RDcast over the weekend and they broke some big news! Starting on Saturday, September 15th, N3RDcast will be going out LIVE on Cringe Humor Radio! Every Saturday from 12 until 3, listeners will be able to call in to the show and join in the fun. Congrats guys!

We'll be back in two days with Part B of episode 80.

Komicskast - #79 - A-town Con, Fantagraphics, Shenzhen, BOP

Jon's on vacation so you're stuck with just Stephen and I!:

(1:31) Just general chatter, including the new Flash Gordon TV show. This quickly digresses into our discussion on our crushes on various Television actresses. And then, somehow, that evolves into a discussion on the new Jekyll TV series on BBV America, and various other versions of Jekyll and Hyde. Visit the KomicsKast Forum HERE to confess your own TV crushes!

(16:23) Stephen visited the Fantagraphics Company Store along with friend Stevie (visit Stevie's site HERE) and then went on to detail what he bought as well as extoll the virtues of his cartoonists club.

(32:11) Bruce attended the Lehigh Valley Comic Con and hung out with the N3RDcast guys, who were guests at the con. Despite Stephen's not being able to find them on iTunes, N3RDcast IS available through iTunes.

(49:23) Supernot Podcast Promo.

(50:04) The BOP (bottom of our piles).

(57:30) A review of Shenzhen, a book by Guy Delisle detailing his year in China as a supervisor for an animation studio, his travels, and the folks he met.

(1:03:19) Stephen talks about the movie Stardust, which leads to a long digression (are you seeing a theme here?) on Science Fiction movies and MORE TV crushes.

Stephen animated the KomicsKast opening long before we were able to to figure out how to post it...

...he's since figured it out!

Presented in all it's glory, here it is!
