On one of our first few shows, I just made fun of an earlier version of this image from the then-newly announced Image series from Todd MacFarlane and Robert Kirkman.

I finally read the first four issues of Haunt this week, and it turns out there is way more to it than jizz-hands. AND I have a wonderful, historical explanation of just what those j-hands really are! Be excited. I hope none of you get scared when we start talking about ghosts.

Despite reports of the issues 'selling out' (at the distributor level), you can still find first-printings of these first four issues on shelves. And 2nd, 3rd, and 4th printings, as well, no doubt. Issue #5 out this Wednesday.

And what's this Amazing Spider-Man cover got to do with anything? Listen to the show, I've got a pretty stupid answer for you.

LIVE tonight at 5:30 pm central time!

P.S- Here's some art I've been working on lately. Page three of Ghost Bee #1!:

Free Comic Book Day

Jason Aaron ( writer of The Other Side, Scalped, Ghost Rider, and Weapon X: Wolverine ) and Jesse Delperdang ( inker of Ka-Zar, Batman and other books in the Bat-family, and X-Infernus ) stopped by our local comic book store this Saturday, and they signed a few comic books for EVERYONE in Iowa City. Seriously, everyone. That's not even a joke. Don't know what I mean?

Listen to the show.

The 20 Minute Comic Book Fashion Hour

When I was in high-school, I was something of a shoe freak. I'd get rare pairs through shady channels and had a series of toothbrushes and special cleaning agents I'd use nightly to keep my kicks clean. Then I got to college and was poor.

I bought my first pair of new shoes last week, and have slipped almost completely back into my old ways (need to buy some more Q-tips and bleach for the vulcanized rubber soles) but I thought I'd share some findings with all you cool cats here.

Nike SB released this hero/villain pack in November 2008 and they are sweet.

The Spider-mans

The Venoms

Aaron thinks that naming them based on the colorways is stupid. I think they are cool looking shoes, and the name gives me an excuse to post them here.

If you want some complementary colors, is selling Marvel and DC character hats. Some are hits, some are misses but there's a nice mix between classic colorways and bugged out, hipstery ones:

There's more of a selection over at that separates the DC caps from the Marvel caps (if you care about that sorta thing) and features some designs not available on the aforementioned Dig it!

Adam Sandler fast forwarded through the middle part of our show. And the make-up sex.

We started late last Sunday. We also had a special 2-hour show in the A.M earlier that day ( i.e: midnight). I'll put the portion of that I recorded up here once I get it converted.

BUT for now, I bring you a brief, glitchy, 11-Minute-20-Minute Comic Book Hour. We're talking about The Walking Dead, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz ( where the recording glitches occurred), and Ex Machina. Dig it. Up. From the grave.

Or just get it HERE on zshare. 10 mb.

We'll start on time this week. 'Cuz we love you. And comics. Mostly comics.

Free Comic Book Day May 2nd. Gonna be a big deal in Iowa City! If you don't know yet, you will soon!
