Marvelette Missives – I Hate Image

Comic fans know that the first Saturday of May is Free Comic Book Day, also known to many as Merry Comics Day. Comic shops everywhere have lines out the door as people swing by for the freebies (and to grab deals on other comics and items that many shops put on sale that day). Many publishers re-release a previously published comic as a free book or combine stories from a couple of their titles to introduce to readers. But a few release books created specifically for FCBD. This year, one of the best was I Hate ImageMore

    The History of Bad Ideas Podcast, Ep. 175–Put the Pudding In the Pudding Pops!

    The HOBI Gang ushers in 175 episodes by talking Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 but its non-spoiler and the show goes off the rails pretty early!  Jason loves the latest episodes of Riverdale, much to Jeff and Blake’s dismay, while Jason is dismayed at Blake and Jeff’s taste in old school video game systems.  Jeff lays down the rules for shaving his beard, Blake gives a listener a nickname while relishing his latest Draft Day win, and Jason is the kiss of death for Fox television shows!  The guys get sexy with the Colonial from KFC while Jeff and Blake get giddy over Game of Thrones spin-offs!  The gang talk pudding, their Top 5 Unknown Facts About Themselves and their hatred of buttons!  This episode is sponsored by the Cincinnati Comic Expo!

      The HOBI Gang is at full strength tonight as the guys debate the NHL Playoffs (with help from Nickel at Graphic Novice), the disappointment of the Circle, and announce another finalist for the best Netflix original series tournament!  The guys bring back Draft Day and draft movie quarterbacks with bad Cleveland Browns quarterbacks, much to Blake’s chagrin.  Jason and Jeff are excited for Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 this week and Blake is not interested in another turn at the X-Files!  The guys debate How to Be a Latin Lover again and listener Nikki suggests the Top 5 this week, the gang’s Most Hated Food!

        The History of Bad Ideas Podcast, Ep. 173–The Jedi of Berkeley!

        The HOBI Gang is all together and welcomes Andrew, founder of the Cincinnati Comic Expo, back into the studio to discuss Star Wars Celebration and opening a Disney store!  In the most disjointed episode ever, the guys talk the relevance of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions, surviving a genocide, and Blake catching up on films from the past three decades!  Despite the Marvel debacle, Jason tries to be a Latin lover but can’t find the right music while Andrew announces more guests for the Expo.  Andrew’s tight schedule caused a shift in the HOBI paradigm resulting in the the earliest Top 5, Bucket List Items, ever!  This episode is sponsored by the Cincinnati Comic Expo!

                          Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 57: Who Else Seen Da Leprechaun Say Yeah!

                          It was a down week for books and after getting yelled out all week about review scores, Jim was pretty depressed.  That means one thing…The Mobile Leprechaun.  Yes, nothing brings a smile to Jim and Eric’s face quicker than a little, “Who Else Seen Da Leprechaun Say Yeah!”  It carries them through this long ass episode where they break down all the books, talk DC Comics news, get yelled at in the listener mail and try to have a good time.  Enjoy!

                              Jim, Eric and Reggie were going to talk about the solicits for this week’s podcast and then news starting dropping about “Rebirth”.  So, Jim finally got his way and the guys do an Emergency Podcast.  Things go off the rails a bit, but who wouldn’t expect that, right?  They do talk about the April Solicits and what they think this Rebirth thing is all about.  Possibly.

                                Jim and Eric get together the day after Christmas and they are not in a jolly mood.  Maybe they didn’t get the presents they wanted or they are still reeling from last week’s “Dildo Incident”, but they certainly don’t agree much.  Eric gives a sort of update on Stinky Jamie and Jim just wants to end it all.  They do manage to talk about a ton of books and continue being the #hardestworkingguysinpodcasting.  Enjoy!
