We Be Geeks 219: Comics With Mike Zapcic

We start off this episode with Brett giving us a rundown of Motorcity Comicon which he attended last weekend. Brett tells about some of the great things he saw, heard, and bought at the convention, and then talks about some of the celebrities and creators he saw at the convention. Brett also tells us about some of the things he enjoyed about the con, as well as some of the things that could be improved about the con.
After the convention report, we take a brief interlude to talk about one of the We Be Geeks affiliates, Superherostuff, and a couple of the Herobox subscription boxes that they will be offering in the next month, including a box based on Spider-Man, and a Father’s Day special box.
We then welcome a guest to the podcast, Mike Zapcic from the AMC show Comicbook Men. We talk with Mike about comics, favorite things from Comicbook Men, and several other topics as well. Mike was a great guest, a great interview, and a lot of fun to talk to, and we thank him for coming on our podcast.

He gives a brief synopsis of the organization and how would they fit in the Cinematic universe. Mike follows up with an article about Mantis being all wrong in Guardians Volume 2, according to her creator. Kylan brings in two news stories regarding the spiderverse. The Venom movie has a new lead and director. It looks like it is going to be epic! And, for a bit of nostalgia, check out the article after the Venom story. Mike then gets to close out this week’s news segments with two articles: once is about a new solo book featuring Mace Windu and the second article is about a new book featuring Captain Cassian.!!

                              It’s another long one, but is that because there were a lot of books, or was Jim just hung up on yelling?  Little bit from column A, a little bit from column B it seems.  What started as a pretty positive, fun time turns dark and Reggie, Chris, Branden, Trevitt, Jeremy and Josh are all along for the ride.  Enjoy!
