So, we were supposed to do a real episode, but Euge’s computer decided to majorly crash a day before he was going out of town. So after a night of recovering all of the stuff necessary to record and process a podcast, we cobbled together this mini-live-to-tape episode, just to keep our Cal Ripken-esque streak going (note: we have no Ripken-esque streak).
Got no time for show notes this week (I’m literally catching a ride out of town in…uhh, five hours?..and have to go sleep). Our apologies to our scheduled guest, Phil Hester. Hopefully we’ll have him on the show soon, but check back next week for Marvel editor, Nate Cosby!
If you listened to Episode 38 with guest Paul Tobin, you may have heard a lengthy discussion on whether Batman and/or the Punisher would smile, and the subject of Batman and The Punisher smiling while going to get ice cream came up. Listener Sean drew us some art showing this momentous occasion:
And just to show why Batman would ever cry, Sean drew this picture as well:
Of course, what the picture crops out is Batman having just read The Widening Gyre #6. Yeah, I went there.
Also, over at AdamWarRock.com, I’m holding a contest and giving away tshirts to two lucky people. These tshirts are professionally screen pressed, and will be available for sale on August 24, 2010, but YOU can get a free shirt by entering the Diss Rhyme contest.
Go check it out and put things with us on your bodies! Wait…err…
So, a severe thunderstorm struck the DC area on Thursday, when we were supposed to record our next episode of Ajax with ComicsAlliance Assistant Editor, Caleb Goellner. It knocked out the power and internet for much of the region, including most of the trees and power lines, and in some cases, small buildings and cars. The next day, Sims was out of town through the weekend.
So no Ajax this Monday. But check back on August 16, when our guest will be Paul Tobin! And hopefully, Caleb will join us soon as well.
Sims is back from San Diego Comic-Con, so we gab about that with fellow ComicsAlliance contributor and House of Chicken and Waffles and Comics proprietor, David Wolkin. Also, Skymall, Mega Man, and comics!
