Hey Kids, Comics! #141 - Secret Agent Man

• July 3rd, 2015

The mountain lion hunts by the light of the full moon.

While that may mean absolutely nothing to most, it may mean something to the espionage community which may wind up having the JCU wind up on a list somewhere.  The purpose of this is to set up this week's issue of Hey Kids, Comics! in which hosts Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston explore the world of spies and secret agencies.  
From the obvious like S.H.I.E.L.D. to the obscure anagram-themed organizations, there was far more subject matter to explore than time allowed.  None the less this show brings you what is declassified in the world of intrigue!
None the less, you may want to keep this one to yourself.

Hey Kids, Comics! #138 - I’m Waiting to Be Impressed: The 2015 SDCC Exclusives Rant

• June 5th, 2015

San Diego Comic Con is fast approaching and that can only mean one thing (for the third time in as many years)!  

Yes, it is time for Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston to piss and moan about all the cool exclusives that they won't have direct access to since they won't be attending Comic Con!  Yet this year the proceedings took a more somber note for various reasons.  The Marvel Comics revelation, the lackluster nature of some exclusives, and several other aspects of the collectibles end of things, well...you'll just have to give it a listen.
And if you are attending SDCC, be sure to heed the admonition of your hosts about a certain Bat-collectible!
