Hey Kids, Comics! #259 - The Saga of “Saga”

• February 10th, 2018

Why has it taken nearly 260 issues of this show to finally arrive here?  

That is probably the biggest question posed as Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston finally tackle the epic Image Comics publication "Saga"!

For the unfamiliar it might be best to avoid this issue, at least past the first ten minutes or so, to allow yourself the opportunity to immerse yourself in the outstanding work of Fiona Staples and Brian K. Vaughn!  This surprising gem drops the reader head first into a vast universe of magic and technology, bizarre worlds and races, and characters who's humanity transcends their all-too-often curious exteriors.

Hey Kids, Comics! #258 - That Moment When, Again

• February 2nd, 2018

Nine months ago Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston embarked on a journey into the power of the comic book story to move the reader.  From the tales that make you think to those that move you so deeply that you find yourself tearing up from their poignancy.  

Naturally there are too many such instances to have been covered in a single issue.  And more have occured since the first issue of the show to address this phenomenon.  So HKC! is proud to yet again explore the moments when a comic became more than a comic.

The Rantcor Pit #68 - Far, Far Away or (The Enduring Inconvenience of Star Wars)

• January 28th, 2018

The Rantcor Pit is back on the JediCole Universe!

Your hosts Cole Houston and Eddie Medina had taken far too long a hiatus to see to varius projects and concentrate on the production of The Rantcor Pit Live on Dallas on Air as well as their own new monthly shows there.  

But you can't keep them away from the audio version of the show forever, and now they return with a look at another kind of long run, the nature of how so many things in Star Wars films seem so far apart or just downright inconveniently arranged.  In the interest of not giving too much away, the subject matter will be left at that so you can explore right along with "Your Favorite Star Wars Guys"!
