This time Your Favorite Star Wars Guys are talking about a legend in collecting circles, author and former LucasFilm Fan Liason, Steven Sansweet.  As a Guiness Book World Record-holder for being the fan with the biggest Star Wars collection, Sansweet has made a mark on the fan and collecting community.  He has written extensively on Star Wars and its collectibles, worked directly with LucasFilm to keep the communication between the studio and the fan base flowing for years in the past and established Rancho Obi-Wan as a showcase that can be toured by fans and collectors.

In addtion to the uber-collector, collecting Star Wars in general is discussed and Eddie gets something out of his system in advance of the live show's upcoming Christmas Wishlist episode.

Hey Kids, Comics! Halloween Special #1 - Chick or Treat

• October 31st, 2016

On October 23, 2016, prolific religious comic book publisher Jack Chick passed away leaving a legacy of one of the most targeted if often bizarre uses of the medium.  His mini-comics (known as tracts) and full size color comic books have been a staple of illustrated ministry for decades.

As if to remind your hosts Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston that such publications are indeed an important aspect of comic books as yet unexplored on this show.  What started out as Hey Kids, Comics! #202 soon became the first Halloween Special.  Given the volume of Chick Publications that focused on the evil, witchcraft-inducing, foul history of Halloween and the susceptibility of all mankind to the machinations of Satan.  

Join your hosts, along with The Rantcor Pit's own Eddie Medina, as they explore the Hell-and-damnation world of Jack Chick.
