Oversaturated Magic Pulp

Hey everyone. Gedge here. In a recent podcast episode John, Dana and IĀ recapped our adventures at Dragon Con 2015. If you haven’t listened to it yet, strap down your ears for a listen (Episode 6: Dragon Con: Fury Road).

In the podcast, I brought up my experience at a couple publisher panels, which included Titan Books and Ace/Rock. The panel description included something along the phrase of “free swag.” In honesty, I wanted new books, so I showed up to see what they had—no shame, man.

Episode 2: Revenge of the Unicorn

Hey Everyone, back again with another podcast! We made it to two! In this episode we discuss Batman: Arkham Knight. Even if you’re not into video games, you might still enjoy the conversation as it devolves into a discussion on the artistic merit of video games, and the ethics of Batman’s privilege (to beat the shit out of people).

We also discuss DragonCon, which is coming up in less than a month and try to piss off the more colorful segments of fandom. We’re sorry, but not really.

Stick around until the end to hear John argue whether or not Captain America sucks.
