GO JOE!!! In celebration of 40 years since the creation of the GI Joe comics and animated series, we venture back to the very beginning of it all. Shane, Chris, Ian and Matt give their thoughts on issue 1 of the GI Joe comic, written by the one and only Larry Hama, with art by the legendary Herb Trimpe. But do they stop there? NO! The crew also goes deep into GI Joe's very first five-part animated miniseries, The M.A.S.S. Device. Discussion includes variation in tone between the two versions of the franchise, whether the comic is as kid-friendly as the show, if the show is even as kid-friendly as we remember it to be, the 80s house animation style, Scarlett's split romantic longings, Cobra Commander's competency or lack thereof, Snake Eyes glowing like a Christmas tree, a lot more references to slavery than we remembered, the slaughtering of an entire village, Destro having all the best one-liners, and so much more. Much more includes plenty of toy talk from Shane and the rest of the Geeks, that's for sure! So now you know. And knowing is... well, you get the idea. (1:58:18)
We wind down 2022 with a relaxed Comic Talk, featuring Bryan, Shane, Kevin and Adam, with a brief appearance by Peter, who was unfortunately much less relaxed when this was recorded. Topics include a bevy of birthday wishes; Crusaders memories; Cheers; Black Adam; the future of DC Movies; DC TV; Tulsa King; recent purchases; Dark Crisis; Impossible Jones; Construction Geek Speak; art projects; Comic Book Binding; Bryan's new family addition; and more!

Seventeen years and two reboots ago, Spider-Man took his first swing at the big screen, under the direction of Sam Raimi and supported by a memorable cast including Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, and Willem Dafoe. Today, with Spidey's cinematic future in question, the Geeks hearken back to that simpler time and spin their own web of praise and deprecation around the original Spider-Movie: the stars, the script, the suits, the sketchy CGI, and so on. Listen today--it's your power AND your responsibility! (1:25:08)
The Geeks act as digital-audio docents, summarizing their experience of the Marvel exhibit at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia! Other attractions include a salute to FlameCon 2019; the inevitable rundown of the Sony/Spider-Man cinematic situation (sheesh!); a tantalizing MCU casting announcement; a few very earnest reading recommendations; a bargain-store bonanza for Shane; Muddle the Murd, and more!

August heat got you beat? Cool off with a big, ice-cold pitcher of Comic Talk, featuring follow-ups to our recent Top 5 Animated Series of Our Youth episode; reactions to SDCC news & gossip; a full-scale, five-Geek review of Spider-Man: Far From Home; and more! It's comic fun in the summertime! (2:26:50)
It was the worst of times for Daredevil; it was the best of times for his readers! It was 1986, and comics auteur Frank Miller was making his second pass at writing Marvel's Daredevil series, accompanied this time by master draftsman David Mazzucchelli as artist. What Miller accomplished over seven revolutionary issues (Daredevil #227-233), collectively titled 'Born Again,' was the total decimation of Matt Murdock's life and Murdock's subsequent triumphant resurgence, in a masterful tale steeped in hardboiled crime fiction and Christian allegory. Join our CGS literary circle (including Doctors of Daredevology Chris Eberle and Kevin Moyer) in an examination of this deft deconstruction and reconstruction of one of Marvel's iconic characters.
