It involved his college radio she which are collected on his website(www.wax-work.com) or his podcast(Cast in Wax Podcast). he conversation moves to when Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012 and if anyone saw Marvel getting the books back.

                  The talk then expanded to his work on other books, primarily Deadpool. From the crazy stories to the wacky art, and to have a throwaway scene changed his life, it is all here. Of course, same as usual, we head to the comic shop for our (P.O.W.) Picks Of the Week!!

                    Mighty Marvel Geeks 173: Your Friendly Neighborhood Marvel Geeks

                    Your Intrepid Trio has returned with another broadcast filled with more Marvel news for your ears! The show begins with a heartfelt memorial to Joan Lee, Stan Lee’s wife headed up by Eric. Kylan then follows with a late breaking story about an injured Jeremy Renner. Will it affect Avengers: Infinity War? Mike follows up with a piece about what three MCU movies must you see before seeing Spider-Man: Homecoming. The article creates an interesting discussion for the team. Do you agree? Mike then segues into an article about a scene that was in the trailer, but not in the movie and why. This, too, spills over into the prevalence of trailers and geek culture’s obsession with them. Kylan follows with a story about the five movie story arc for Peter Parker. Pete has quite a road ahead of him, it seems. Mike finishes the movie news with an article about the future for Blade in the MCU. Eric then finishes the news segment with a piece about Captain America being called out by another comic company. Fall is going to be kinda hot, it seems! The guys then take it to the comic shop for their P.O.W.(Picks Of the Week) and Kylan has the Marvel Unlimited POW.

                      Who is that coming through on your speakers? That’s right it is your Intrepid Trio, all present and accounted for in this latest issue of Mighty Marvel Geeks! They have handed out a lanyard and have a guest with them in the Lair! This week’s guest is the store manager for the Kissimmee, Florida location for Coliseum of Comics, J.C. Cunningham. You have heard about the comics industry from the writer, artist, and editor points of view, not you get it from the retail side. J.C. pulls back the veil on how things like special events, alternate covers, and even popular writers and artists have an effect on the business at the store level. From action figure variants to how special events can ruin trade paper backs, it is all in here. He even jumps in with the guys for the P.O.W.(Picks of the Week) and Mike has the Marvel Unlimited POW.

                        This week, the Intrepid Trio invites Marvel Comics artist John Tyler Christopher into the Above-Ground-Underwater-Volcano-Lair. John hits the ground running talking about his claim to fame, the action figure variant covers. Beginning with the Star Wars books and going to the most recent published books, he’s had his hand on it. John talks about what the action figure variants have meant to him as an artist and the guys talk about what it means for them as fans. JTC even goes on to discuss how a certain character could conceivably bridge the MCU and the Star Wars Universe. The Star Wars talk also brings up an obscure and missed character from the early Marvel run as well as toys that never saw the big screen. The talk then goes into his work on other Marvel books and characters that he really enjoy as a comic fan. From there the guys go to the comic shop for their (P.O.W.) Picks Of the Week!

                            The Intrepid Trio are all present and accounted for, but they also have brought in a visitor to the Above-Ground-Underwater-Sub-Orbital-Volcano-Lair, Aaron from Dis Dads Podcast! This issue is kinds special because it is our round table discussion about Season 4 of  Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. We leave it all out there for you guys to listen, take in, consider, and comment on, if you like. We start with the initial promotions for the new season and take it to what we’d hope to see for season 5. The Trio also proudly admit to being wrong about this being the last season for the show, although we do not the shenanigans with the new scheduling. We talk about the introduction of “pods” into the season and what worked and what didn’t on that front. It is safe to say that We’re all excited to be getting another season, regardless of how delayed it is going to be. This issue does have a backstory and that is where you will find the Picks of the Week and mike’s Marvel Unlimited Pick!
