We Be Geeks 219: Comics With Mike Zapcic

We start off this episode with Brett giving us a rundown of Motorcity Comicon which he attended last weekend. Brett tells about some of the great things he saw, heard, and bought at the convention, and then talks about some of the celebrities and creators he saw at the convention. Brett also tells us about some of the things he enjoyed about the con, as well as some of the things that could be improved about the con.
After the convention report, we take a brief interlude to talk about one of the We Be Geeks affiliates, Superherostuff, and a couple of the Herobox subscription boxes that they will be offering in the next month, including a box based on Spider-Man, and a Father’s Day special box.
We then welcome a guest to the podcast, Mike Zapcic from the AMC show Comicbook Men. We talk with Mike about comics, favorite things from Comicbook Men, and several other topics as well. Mike was a great guest, a great interview, and a lot of fun to talk to, and we thank him for coming on our podcast.

We Be Geeks 194: Something Good Comes Out Of Today

This week on We Be Geeks: The entire team is back together and ready to talk geek! Something good comes out of today! Wizard World was on Julz’s radar as she attended this past weekend. While there were great things about Wizard World Pittsburgh, it sadly isn’t returning. It’s not on the list for next years shows. It still may be possible, and we are hoping so. Speaking of Wizard World, Stephen Shamus (former Chief Marketing Officer) was recently fired for obtaining autographs from the celebrities, and selling them. He is no longer with Wizard World, but one wonders how much this has hurt them. Is Jessica Jones, Daredevil, or Luke Cage a better show? We discuss this much more in depth on this show. Speaking of Netflix, Stranger Things is adding some new cast members. Still no word on when the hit show will return, but we are all waiting patiently. Pacific Rim has begun filming it’s second movie. It has hit some bumps in the road, but is on its way to us in 2018. Out 200th episode is coming up very soon, and we have some very cool prizes to one lucky winner. Stay tuned for your chance to win.

Marvelette Missives – Kickin’ It Old School

I recently went to an old school comic con. If you’re lucky, you know what I’m talking about – a bunch of dealers crammed into a hall, maybe a couple of artists selling original sketches, but no celebrities or photo ops in sight. Sure, a few people showed up in costume (I think there was an actual costume contest at some point, though I didn’t stay for it), but it was primarily a crowd of comic book lovers looking for deals. I would say about 80% of the space was long boxes and most of what was on offer was golden, silver and bronze age issues with some current releases thrown in (especially ones with variant covers).
