And here’s a photo gallery of cosplay from the con!

A quick note:  My apologies for my rather lackluster voice in my segments; I’m fighting that beginning of the school year thing where I come home with a perpetually scratchy voice.  And I hope the echo in the Amulet panel segment isn’t too distracting–the room was quite large.

Tune in next episode for part two of my coverage, when I talk to Gene Hendricks about our con experiences!

Origin Story Episode 31

Origin Story Episode 31 Website CoverWhen an American computer engineer seems to have gone rogue and started working with the Soviets in Southeast Asia, a select team of Joes have to go in to take care of him.  It’s a kinda/sorta crossover with “In Country” in G.I. Joe Special Missions #8.  Plus, I … well, I not so much reminisce as complain about the 1987 Mets and Terry F—ing Pendelton.

Pop Culture Affidavit Episode 77: As You Wish

Episode 77 Website Cover“Is this a kissing podcast?”

Travel back to 1987 and the land of Florin as my friend, Amanda Broyles, and I take a look at one of our all-time favorite films, Rob Reiner’s The Princess Bride.  We share our respective memories with the film and give it a review.  It may sound inconceivable, but we guarantee that listening to this is not one of the classic blunders.
