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!

THE GREATEST SPACE ADVENTURE OF ALL TIME RETURNS TO MARVEL! Join us at Midtown Comics Downtown on 01/16/14 as Jason Aaron and John Cassaday sign Star Wars #1, one of the most anticipated books of 2015!

Star Wars #1 – 01/14/14
Writer: Jason Aaron • Artist: John Cassaday

Luke Skywalker and the ragtag band of rebels fighting against the Galactic Empire are fresh off their biggest victory yet-the destruction of the massive battle station known as the Death Star. But the Empire’s not toppled yet! Join Luke along with Princess Leia, smugglers Han Solo and Chewbacca, droids C-3PO and R2-D2, and the rest of the Rebel Alliance as they strike out for freedom against the evil forces of Darth Vader and his master, the Emperor. Written by Jason Aaron (Original Sin, Thor: God of Thunder) and with art by John Cassaday (Astonishing X-Men, Uncanny Avengers), this is the Star Wars saga as only Marvel Comics could make it!

-Purchase of Star Wars #1 required to attend event.

-Limit of two items signed per person.

The whole gang (Andrew, Dimitirios, Sam, Gavin, and Ted) finally gets back together! We catch up on our Thanksgiving break. We then discuss the latest movie news including the Star Wars Episode 7 teaser, the Terminator Genisys trailer, Suicide Squad casting, and some actors finally getting announced for some projects.  Andrew tries to make heads or tails on the Walking Dead comic and TV show.  We then talk about our hot picks of the week and answer a voicemail from a listener.

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