James Earl JonesThis week was just plain hilarious … we got our first special guest and he had us in tears.

  • Tim Seeley sits in with us to talk about bad movies and stage plays
  • We chat a bit about the recent KING announcement from Marvel and what it might mean, but probably doesn’t, to the comics biz …
  • Mike and Tim recall some odd sketch requests from cons …
  • Features music clips of  "Crazy for You"  by Divebar and some random steel guitar thing of mine.

Mike will be at the convention in Dallas this weekend, so give him a buss on the cheek for me.
