Comic Book Bears Podcast
CBB Flashback - Comic Book Bears Podcast Issue #66 (Recorded 6/30/2015, originally released 6/30/2105)

Those bear boys continue to get caught up with unreleased episodes. This time Billy Z, Matt, Bryan, Justin and Steve congregate to talk cons, news and then, of course, the funnybooks themselves. First we cover Bryan and Steve's exploits at Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC. Then the whole group goes down the list of what Marvel's post-Secret Wars roster will look like.  The talk then turns to Marvel's Secret Wars tie-in books including Thors, the X-Men books and hella more.  After that, the Distinguished Competition gets its turn in the spotlight with talk about what is happening over in Justice League, Batman, Batgirl, the Superman titles and the #1 issues of Black Canary and Martian Manhunter! (And if you were wondering where the indie talk time is - - - fear not, true believer; the upcoming Episode/Issue 67 is nothing but indie comics talk!)

CBB Flashback - Comic Book Bears Podcast Issue #62 Part 1 - The One Where These Gay Boys Talked So Long They Had To Split The Episode In Two (Originally Released 5/18/2015)

The first of a two part marathon episode! Show regulars Billy Z, Justin, Bryan, Steve and newly official regular Matt go to the movies, turn on the TV and then take listener questions. (The current comic book talk doesn't hit until part two.) And let's just say there is more cussing and more alcohol consumption during this show than any previous one. First up, Avengers: Age of Ultron gets the spotlight. Next up is Daredevil on Netflix, now that all of us have seen the entire run. Then we are treated to the unforgettable throwdown of the Gotham season finale by Mr. Bryan Pittard. And last but not least it's the first part of our answering listener questions with topics ranging from Astro City to what Warner Brothers/DC is doing wrong in filmland to the Image books we read to the comic creators we find to be the woofiest. Part 2 is coming along real soon!

 

And we will give Matt a proper welcome to the show as a regular on a future episode soon - don't worry!

 

Intro: Matthew Sweet - "Where You Get Love"

1:16 - Avengers: Age of Ultron

34:20 - Daredevil on Netflix

48:13 - Bryan vs. Gotham

1:04:57 - Listener questions

Outro - (It's a surprise)

 

EXPLICIT LANGUAGE - hey, we recorded it on Cinco De Mayo.

CBB Flashback - Comic Book Bears Podcast Issue #61 - With Special Guest Jay Piscopo! (Originally Released 4/24/2015)

Justin, Bryan, Steve, Billy Z and that returning Fuzzbellied friend of ours Matt Brossard himself are back with a new episode! First up, the bear boys interview comic creator Jay Piscopo! Jay is the author and illustrator of The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli graphic novel series. He is also the creator of Sea Ghost, Commander X and a host of other characters based out of the Capt'n Eli universe.  Many of his creations have been turned into Mego-style action figures available through his own Nemo Toys. Jay has a signature style, combining 2D characters with 3D backgrounds and he joins us to discuss his body of work. After the interview Jay stays on the mic to join the rest of the crew for some media  and current comic book talk. Netflix's Daredevil and convention talk starts it off.  Then with DC's Convergence event starting up, a number of the tie-in books get air time as well as Jupiter's Circle from Image, Archie's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the Archie vs. Predator crossover from Dark Horse/Archie, Valiant's Bloodshot Reborn and Divinity, Marvel's new Hawkeye series and more!

 

Fair warning - especially since The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli is an all-ages series, we thought we should give you the heads up that we slip in a few slightly naughty words here and there. Nothing that would come close to garnering an R rating but still worth the advanced word if kids are listening in.
