Apologies for the wait but PCP is back with another edition of ….(*sigh*) Avery has Issues with these Issues. The gang sits down and dissects two of the new Marvel Now books the hilarious Deadpool and the poorly drawn Ironman. Witness Josiah put his foot down on the books he’s reading and Marvel Now catches its first casualties of the line when two people finally drop two books. Elsewhere, there’s a little PCP business talk at the end to wrap up the episode and the guys bunker down for a deluge of books comic in the next week.

PCP Episode 086: Kevin Smith

26 Sep

We like profiling people that give us mixed feelings because it’s just more interesting to talk about. After all, agreeing about how great or awful someone is is about as pointless as reading these descriptions. The title is right there! If that’s not reason enough for you to listen, what can we say here to convince you? Anyway, you know the routine: we profile the man, his works, highlights, low lights and talking about Dogma a lot.

PCP’s Weekly Dose: Solve for JLA

14 Sep

It’s the return of everyone’s favorite radio game show where the rules are made up and the points don’t matter. But that’s not all! We touch on the recent passing of Michael Clarke Duncan, the VMAs, more on comics, metrosexuality and then get to our game. The magic here lies partially in playing along, but mostly in the chicanery surrounding the game. We can make anything sophomoric and in poor taste around here.

Yes, there is a reason why this episode is titled the way that it is. Listen to find out.

We’re back, we have…retuuuuuuurned! Yep, after a bit of a respite from regularly scheduled posting, the PCP boys are on mic again. Of course, since its been a while, we can’t just jump right in like old times. What if we’re a bit rusty? So, we decided to try something a little experimental.

This week we’re talking Hellboy. Why? Because we can! We recount the publishing history of Mike Mignola’s magnum opus and bastion of Dark Horse comics.

PCP Episode 074: The Avengers

We closeout with the good stuff as we speculate on the movie and tease the nerd war that this upcoming summer will bring.
