Last time Bob joined us his comic collection was sitting somewhere around 95,000 unique books. That was a little over a year ago. He still holds the record for the largest comic collection in the world....but 95,000 is most definitely an outdated number. 95,000 is old news. 95,000 ain't nothin'.

Check out the episode to find out the new number. It's....impressive to say the least.

Also check out Bob's site comicspectrum.com because it is packed with useful information ranging from current solicits to tips on grading your comics. It has pretty much everything you need if you're looking for a site to learn about comics.

Enjoy!

Here's part two of our chat with Micah from Beat Down Boogie! For those who missed out on part one all you have to do is check out last week's episode and you're good to go.

And for those who still haven't heard of Beat Down Boogie yet...here's a video they released just this morning. It'll give you a good idea of the brilliant content they produce.

Like what you see? Of course you do.

Normally when we have guests on the show who aren't Joe, Colin, or Brett we'll give them the usual "yeah so we like to go for an hour or so if that's cool with you".  Most of the time we're pretty good about sticking to our time limit but there are those rare instances where once we get going we have trouble stopping (See: PAX East 2015 wrap-up)

This is one of those instances.

But trust me: It's 100% worth it and it's even split into two parts! That's right folks, it's double episode time. The next two weeks will be full of awesome as Alex, Brett, and I chat with Micah from Beat Down Boogie! Yes! You absolutely read that correctly!

Now that you've made it past all of my exclamation points take a look at these links and do the usual thing: Support good people who make rad things. You can do that by clicking here, here, or here.

Tune in next week for part two!

It has been an absurdly long time since we had Joe on and I almost feel like I have to apologize to all of our listeners for making you wait for so long.

Per usual...whenever Joe comes on there is typically one thing we talk about: Gaming. Sometimes it's just videogames, sometimes it's just tabletop. This week? All of the above and then some including Tales From The Borderlands, Slap .45, Secret Hitler and more. 

Essentially we're discussing all the things we've been having massive amounts of fun with over the past 2 months (or the entire year if we're talking Tales but trust me you'll hear plenty about that this week).

Enjoy!

Ok, so I could do the normal thing and write about how awesome it is every time Matt comes on but at this point it's just going to come off as lame and repetitive so I'll do my best to avoid it.

No promises, though.

If you've heard any of Matt's previous episodes you'll know we're talking wrasslin'. We're talking indie wrasslin', professional wrasslin', classic wrasslin'. Pretty much every form of wrasslin'.

Speaking of indie wrestling: Alex and I made it out to the debut of UvT Wrestling in Enfield, CT a few months ago and I gotta say it was a blast. Seeing as my only prior experience at wrestling shows was a taping of RAW back in 3rd grade...I really had no idea what to expect. We get into more detail in the episode but seriously if you're looking for a fun night out and something a little different you might want to look into your local wrestling scene. For those folks in our area you should hit up these accounts on the Twitter. They'll have all the details you need to hunt down a show:

@PVPwrestling

@UVTwrestling

@FutureHeavies

@ComicHypnosis

Alex and I have yet to even attempt to attend Rhode Island Comic Con. Personally my wallet is still aching from NYCC last month. And Alex...well, let's just say he's not exactly on their "Nice List". Luckily we have friends who make the trip every year and are more than eager to tell us about it. Like Ken!

Remember Ken? He came on last year with Jess and took part in what went down as the most expletive filled episode we've ever recorded (including the "Ragefeld" episode from wayyy back). If you go back and listen to it be sure to pop some headphones on or something. Maybe make your peace with God, too. Just to be safe.

Anyway. Ken is back after making the haul to the smallest state in the country and it's time for us to find out if RICC has learned anything about running a convention.

Enjoy!

"The Girl in the Basement" holds a special place in my heart.

Not only is it the first campaign I ever backed on Kickstarter but it's also a project that some of my closest friends have been working on for 2 years now. We've had Kt on a couple times to give us updates; Director Jared and Producer Bob have both joined us once or twice each time feeding us little details on how the movie was coming along. Hell, I even get to record a podcast every week with the makeup designer and special effects expert (That's Alex, btw).

So you can understand my excitement when I get to say that the time has finally come and the film is making its premier.

Care to see a trailer to pique your interest?? Click here.

Now I know what you're thinking: "Where in the world can I see this film!?!?"

Answer: It's called the Short Film Showcase in Greenfield, MA. It will be a night of short films made by independent filmmakers headlined by the premier of "The Girl in the Basement". Click here for more info.

Seeing as the event is literally right around the corner we understand there's a chance you might not be able to make it. Never fear: There will be other ways of checking out the flick and you won't even have to do anything illegal. I'll update with more details soon.

This episode is a continuation to an episode we did back in September. It was just one of those conversations that had to end...but we didn't want it to end. So we kept it going.

This week we're finishing the tales of our comic origins.  *DRAMATIC MUSIC AND SOUND EFFECTS THAT HEIGHTEN THE MOOD*

Enjoy!

If you've ever been to Six Flags New England in Agawam, MA during the Halloween season it's almost guaranteed that you've seen/heard/saw people running from Milta. She's what one might call a Local Legend with an amazing library of spooky, scary, and downright disturbing characters at her disposal. She has an incredible ability to not only make you feel comfortable in a world of horror...but scare the living daylights out of you moments later.  Naturally we'd be doing the world a disservice if we never asked her to join us on the show and cap off an amazing month of spectacular spooky-ness.

Who knows. Maybe we'll just keep going with it.

Happy Halloween everyone!

The spoopy-ness continues this week!

Tune in for more spooky, scary talks of horror movies, haunted attractions and um....bodily functions.

Not joking.

Our guest is Jaime of Stone Dead FX and she's a special effects/make up artist currently making scary things for Barrett's Haunted Mansion in Abington, MA.

You don't want to miss it!
