Gobbledygeek Gift Guide 2011

On the new episode of Gobbledygeek, Paul and AJ told you about all the things you should buy this Christmas season, and now here’s a comprehensive guide! (Including a few items that weren’t even mentioned on the show.)

Listen to Last Night’s Gobbledygeek

Last night’s Gobbledygeek, “The Match in the Fireworks Shop,” is available for listening right here. After one of our trademark GobbledyGaffes(TM), Paul manages to call into the show and we get things rolling on our discussion of the future of the comics industry. Discussed are Comixology for both the iPad and the PC, why it can be more satisfying to trade wait, and somehow, some way, we get around to vehemently slamming Rob Liefeld. Again. And, uh, yeah, we do mention LeBron at some point. In the bonus hour, Paul and I continue our countdown of the Top 100 Characters in Modern Pop Culture with #s 80-71, which I’ll hopefully make a post about some time this weekend.

As for the links I promised: here’s Progressive Boink’s list of the 40 worst Rob Liefeld drawings (and they are excruciating) and here’s iFanboy’s article about comics on the iPad and the way o’ the future.

Oh, and this week we had music! I’m going to try to add a page so that you can listen to said music should the urge ever strike you. Because I know you’re all dying to get that 10-second news theme on your iPod.
