Ted, Andrew, and Sam welcome the brains behind Kings County Comics Kurt KC Christenson and his partner Odette Coquette to chat about their performance in their last comic cosplay themed variety show and their planned future events.  Kurt tells the origin of the Kings County Comics collective and their roots to Brooklyn.

Then we talk about the just released Star Wars trailer and mild spoiler… someone isn’t as thrilled about it as the rest.  We also try to talk about Daredevil without giving any spoilers. And of course we discuss out top picks of the week!

If you have any suggestions for the show please let us know through our Twitter, Facebook, or email us at podcast@midtowncomics.com. Leave a question on our voicemail at 980-MIDTOWN and we’ll play it on the show!
