Here's a big two-parter for ya. The first half is our typical yuckfest with some more post-apocalyptic updates, some pre-revolutionary updates, and a trip on the Nostromo. We've got a good and a not so good beer, and "San Pedro" by Mogwai to send you off. For round two, Chris interviews Alexis Fajardo, creator of the all-age graphic novel series, Kid Beowulf. Two volumes have been released already and were a huge hit with Chris's son. Unfortunately, the third and final volume is complete but unpublished. So, Lex has launched a Kickstarter campaign to send it to the printers. It's great stuff so (pre-)buy it, already!
In celebration of their lucky #13th show, the fellas rally around the 21 Jump Street movie, discuss their ideas for a Google+ Hangout with friends of the show, there's a renaming of Chris's comic section that just may stick, and Jeff brings us home with his first live beer tasting. Speaking of Google+, we're over there now! Add us to your circle if you want to join in on future hangouts.
Chris and Jeff went over their hour limit on this one because, hey, they had a lot of cool stuff to cover. First up, the music documentary "The Other F Word" which explores what happens when punk icons discover fatherhood. Then, the guys try to hash out where they stand with the current state of social platforms, Chris drops his thoughts on Craig Thompson's "Habibi", and Jeff finishes off the show with his typical beer shenanigans.
After taking 3 weeks off so that Jeff could move back to Jersey, we're back on schedule. In this episode, we get caught up and discuss our shared gaming apathy, how to keep cool with technology, Chris's new breathing apparatus, and the usual comic and craft beer talk.
This week's "Graphic Novel for Grown Ass Adults": "Shenzhen: A Travelogue From China"
...and this week's outro music:
Jeff and Chris spend their Father's Day walking uphill in the snow both ways to make another show...so you better appreciate it! This week, they cover their "top 3 cheeseburgers they didn't make or order from a national chain", the Apple keynote, Chris's 1st (of 500, or so Jeff hopes) "graphic novels for grown ass adults" review featuring "The Sign of the Four", and Jeff takes a trip down memory lane during the Yardley Beer Fest.
