Hey Kids, Comics! #117 - The End of the World

• December 19th, 2014

But thankfully not the end of Hey Kids, Comics!

After a week off Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston are back at it with a lively exploration of another facet of comics.  In this case it is that old chestnut, the end of everything! 
How often has Armageddon loomed large, has Ragnarok come a callin', has oblivion been the order of the day?  Fairly often in the 100 plus years that comics have been a part of the literary scene.  Far too often, really.  But that is the sort of thing that makes ideal grist for the mill that is this show and the discussions of two fans who can't get enough of analyzing comics!  
Enjoy this word-destroying episode today, while there's still a today to enjoy it during!

Hey Kids, Comics! #115 - Have You Heard?

• November 28th, 2014

This episode truly is for the birds!

Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston really wing it this week with a flighty issue of Hey Kids, Comics! that flies over the cuckoo's nest!  
Birds are the subject of discussion.  Not literally, but figuratively.  Comic characters with bird wings, those who take on the mantle of a bird, and those who's name invokes a bird are on fair game.  Why do birds resonate so strongly with us as a culture that they inspire and inform so much of our popular culture, especially comics?  Well your hosts have some thoughts on this, even if some are a bit bird-brained!
Enjoy
