Gobbledygeek episode 67, “Of Sci-Fi, Slayers, and Spider-Men,” is available for listening or download right here.
Welcome, boys and girls, to another off-the-cuff, scriptless episode. After some quote-unquote “banter,” the boys talk about why we geeks are so drawn to works of fantasy and science fiction. They also say some words about the latest wave of DC Comics’ New 52, AJ shares his thoughts on the films Our Idiot Brother and Horrible Bosses, and Paul waxes rhapsodic on Another Earth. But of course what we all care about here are the boys’ thoughts on the new Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 9 #1 (hint: they dig it), and Ultimate Spider-Man #1, which includes mocking the %#$& out of “valued reader” Jimmy Champane and “formerly happy Marvel true believer” Douglas Maxfield. Good times.
