A show about comics, small press comics, comic strips, and anything else on the periphery that I think you might enjoy hearing about!
On The Fly - Vampire Hunters, OLD Guys, and the good old days, not to mention, good luck?!

I've been pretty lucky over the last couple weeks to receive four "first offered" movies; Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, Expendables 2, Dark Shadows, and Men in Black 3. Am I really lucky, or is there some other reason that I've managed to get the four DVD's the first week they were offered?

I was worried that I wouldn't enjoy the show for all the media stuff going on, but ended up getting some good bargains, so in the end, I guess I did enjoy it afterall! On this podcast I just talk about some of the stuff I got, and why I bought it. Some of you younger folks may not even have heard of some of it!

I need to go a more in depth show on those various Archie Genre stories!

VERY short one this time. Spent the day wondering what I could talk about and realized that the only comic I've read all week was Captain Marvel. I don't normally like to do negative reviews, but it's all I got! But hey! The pups decided to wrassle in the background, so at least THAT might be exciting...

The Flash Gordon volume coming from IDW is 12 X 16" not 12 X 12 as I said last time... That sheds a whole new light on things and changes my opinion on the best choice.

I finished the Adaptoids story in Secret Avengers and REALLY liked it.

Got my copy of Van Reid's new book: Moss Farm, and have started to read (and enjoy) it. www.moosepath.com

Tony G. asks my opinion on IDW's Popeye series, and I oblige.
