    098 - The Death of Graphic Novice - Part 9 of 10: Left At The Alter

    098 - The Death of Graphic Novice - Part 9 of 10: Left At The Alter

    After The Salty Language Podcast leaves us at the alter in our pretty white wedding dresses, Episode 98 happens, and The Graphic Novice Comic Book Podcast is one step closer to its untimely demise.  The guys discuss some general ongoings in each other's lives before proceeding with an always insightful and intelligent discussion on the wide world of comics.
    In Comic News this week Nickel and The Velvet Fog discuss Logan, Marvel's recent sales woes and other timely topics.
    Make sure you tune in to listen to Nickel's monumental performance in the Marvel Trivia Box segment.
    There is no "Rapid-Fire" Review segment this episode, but the guys do look forward to new releases coming out March 8 & March 15, 2017.
    Thanks for listening folks.

    097 - The Death of Graphic Novice - Part 8 of 10: The Velvet Fog Returns

    097 - The Death of Graphic Novice - Part 8 of 10: The Velvet Fog Returns

    Not dead yet... The Velvet Fog returns from a prolonged absence and the Graphic Novice Comic Book Podcast makes its way back to the airwaves.  Nickel & VF discuss their absence, and spend the majority of the podcast not talking about comics... but sort of talking about comics.  Bumpers are once again rolled.
    After a lot of off-topic chatter, the conversation eventually makes it to "Comic News" and the decline of Marvel's comic sales...  An old familiar subject, Nickel bitches about stuff...  Other topics include: digital codes, The Batman Lego movie, Riverdale on Netflix, Iron Fist on Netflix, and Legion of FX.
    In the "Rapid Fire Review" segment Nickel & VF cover books released on February 15 and February 22, 2017 as well as the books scheduled for release on March 1st.
    Thanks to Desmond Hassing, of two many discontinued podcasts to name, for joining Nickel on Episode 94.2, and a huge thanks to everyone who is still listening. Stay Classy.

    094.2 - The Underground Conversation Sessions - Desmond Hassing

    094.2 - The Underground Conversation Sessions - Desmond Hassing

    Join Nickel from the Graphic Novice Comic Book Podcast as he tries to kill the time while VF recovers from the black plague, and records some conversations with old friends.
    In this session, Nickel sits down with Desmond Hassing of "Musings of a Geek", "Arkham Social Hour", and "Slackademia" podcasting fame.  Desmond had as many podcasts as he has arts degrees, but its late and we can't remember them all...
    The conversation starts with the best of intentions, but after hours of trying to figure out how to record, Nickel is unprepared to steer clear of conversations revolving around politics, twitter etiquette, or Riverdale.  There is some comic talk mixed in there, but you'll have to look pretty hard to find it.

    096 - The Death of Graphic Novice - Part 7 of 10

    Join Nickel & The Velvet Fog for one of the final episodes of the Graphic Novice Comic Book Podcast.  The audio quality is a bit of a throwback to our earlier podcasts, as Nickel's internet connection is a bit spotty.  In the "b******t" segment, the fellows discuss bowel movements, bidets, future guest appearances, the Floppy Awards, and general on-goings since the last recording.
    "Comic News" is packed with comic news, but nothing all that newsworthy.  A lot more time
    Tune in to see if Nickel can keep his winning streak of 1 going this week, as VF ambushes him with a quick 3 question showdown.
    In "Rapid-Fire Review" we look at a smattering of books released between November 16 & December 7, 2016.
    After we look ahead at a few of the books coming out December 14, 2016 we say farewell to the back of our sweet sweet outro.
    Stay classy.

    095 - The Death of Graphic Novice - Part 6 of 10: Conspiracy & The Super Moon

    095 - The Death of Graphic Novice - Part 6 of 10: Conspiracy & The Super Moon

    Conspiracies are afoot following Donald Trump's election victory.  The super moon, is in the sky, VF has joined the "Trump Youth" and censored our previous episode to ensure his place in the new President's graces.
    Nickel & VF start things out with an argument about the merit and existence of Episode 94.1, the Graphic Novice Post Election Podcast Spectacular.  VF blames it on the super moon, Nickel blames it on Trump.  Neil Cetrangolo of the Dark Angels & Pretty Freaks Podcast goes mysteriously missing during the clandestine recording of episode 94.1 as well, also possibly linked to the super moon...  after Nickel lets VF drop the subject of 94.1, we spend some time talking about our favorite conspiracy theories.
    The General Banter or "B******t" segment closes with a discussion of the Doctor Strange movie and a Nickel rant about Nintendo.
    Comic News is essentially swept aside for the "Marvel Trivia Box" segment, where Nickel tries to end a 10 game losing streak.
    In "Rapid-Fire Review" the fellows discuss books released on November 2 & November 9, 2016 including Batman 10, Dark Knight III Book 6 of 10, Avengers 1, Champions 2, Occupy Avengers 1, Captain America Steve Rogers 7, Clone Conspiracy 2 of 5, & Invincible Ironman 1.
    We sneak in some serious talk about Jeff Lemire & Gordon Downie's "Secret Path" project, and the Residential School history in Canada.
    Thanks a bunch for listening. #BringBackEpisode94Point1

Least Informed but Most Fun

Great show! I got hooked after just a couple episodes. Nickel & VF are great together. Love hearing them chat about their lives. And they talk about comics too at some point! Give it a listen!
