Writer Doug Bost and musician Adam Bernstein discuss the things that grown men shouldn’t care about -- but these guys do. What’s on the table? Only fun stuff. Episodes focus on all aspects of the comic book universe, from the warehouse of a professional comic book hoarder to interviews with some of the greatest comics creators alive -- Neal Adams, Klaus Jansen, Chris Claremont, and more. With frequent guests, Doug and Adam also cover movies, music, classic TV, and important topics like, “What musical style do you associate with James T Kirk?” (The answer, of course, is Wagner.) And the kicker: Original music by Adam Bernstein in each episode.

    Ep. 104: The Alex Maleev interview

    Ep. 104: The Alex Maleev interview

    When Alex Maleev paints Daredevil, you can feel the sweat in that red suit. When he sketches Miles Morales  you might get worried Miles is gonna fall off that building. We know and love his art from Spider-Woman, Moon Knight, Batman, Hellboy, and the Scarlet series, many created with Brian Michael Bendis. But we also know Alex because he lives here in Brooklyn and we were lucky enough to sit down in person with Alex to talk about his gorgeous new series Masterpiece. Also, to talk about why he loves the UFC. Music by Adam Bernstein!

    Ep. 103: The Steranko Handshake

    On this episode, find out why Doug and Adam will NEVER interview Jim Steranko—and why we love him anyway. Artist, writer, historian, magician, escape artist, musician, character designer of Indiana Jones, character designer of Coppola’s Dracula, and owner of an amazing head of hair, there is only one Steranko. We met him at Comicon this year and here’s the story of the handshake that almost cut off the circulation to my whole arm. With music by Adam Bernstein, natch!

    Ep. 102: The Joan LeMay interview

    Sure, you’ve heard about Dr. Wu. Peg. Josie. Rikki, who really shouldn’t lose that number. But here’s a question: What do they look like? Well, wonder no more. In this episode, Doug and Adam sit down with the amazing artist who decided to paint every Steely Dan character. You read that right. Joan LeMay has painted ALL of the characters in Steely Dan’s songs in the book she created with the very talented Alex Pappademas. And Joan was just as much of a fun, unpredictable character as any of her subjects. Listen, download, like, subscribe and we promise Mr LaPage will be your man. Original music by Adam Bernstein!

    Ep. 101: Power Records! (with special guest Kevin Maher)

    On the 101st Episode of the Greatest Comic Book Podcast of all time, we dive into uncharted territory: Power Records! In the 1970s, you didn’t just want to read your comics. You wanted to hear them, too. That’s where Power Records came in, creating comic books for your turntable, and this episode plays all the hits, from the Six Million Dollar Man vs Santa, to the Planet of the Apes, to Spidey vs Little Women. Elevating the conversation is the fabulous Kevin Maher. Kevin geeks out as only he can do, and also explains to us why these little 45 RPM records were actually good for kids! As if this isn’t enough, you’ll also get the superhero earworm you didn’t know you needed (by Adam Bernstein and Sam Mastandrea), but you really do need it. Put the needle on the record!Original music by Adam Bernstein

Of course always nice to hear Doug Bost’s and David Baeumler’s voices and be taken back to their growing up years away from the parental eye. Plain to see how the comic book played such an important part in the life of the male of the species. All in all it probably had a healthy affect. How about the Submariner (Prince Nemo) for the boy born in 1930?
