• April 28th, 2016

Welcome back to the crime-filled story arc, "Comic Book Capers"!   In this issue, things really do get criminal as actual low and high profile comic book thefts and heists are the order of the day.  

From high end comics pilfered at conventions to rare comics going missing from comic shop displays to the most famous of all - Nicholas Cage's prized comics disappearing after a party!

All this and a change of heart from JediCole as your hosts Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston open the crime files of the thefts, petty and grand, of some of the most sought after comic books out there.

Hey Kids, Comics! #177 - Comic Book Capers: I’ll See You in Court!

• April 18th, 2016

Let a new arc begin!

Welcome to Hey Kids, Comics! and a unique new story arc that is all about the law, both sides!  From lawsuits to criminal cases, comic books have been central to many a court case.  

As your hosts Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston explore this topic, they start in the civil courts with a variety of famous (and not so well known) cases of publisher v. publisher, creator v. publisher, and more "v." cases that have come before the bench, primarily in the United States.  And not surprisingly, primarily involving Marvel Comics Group.  

So assemble your legal team, check your briefs, and all rise as the court of HKC! is about to hear the first case on its docket, that of the wonderful world of the lawsuit.

Order in the court!

Hey Kids, Comics! #174 - To All-Con and Back Again

• April 1st, 2016

Welcome at long last to the 174th issue of "Hey Kids, Comics!"  

This issue is running rather late due to post-All-Con constraints on JediCole's part and the inevitable con crud that set in afterwards as well.  But illness did not stop this issue making it out, albeit a week late and with the next issue hot on its heels.

All-Con, the favorite convention of The JediCole Universe, has long been a periodic subject of this show.  2016 proves no exception as Andrew Farmer (who could not attend this year) gets the details about the show from co-host Cole Houston.  Cole talks about his 12th year with the show and a banner year for Games and Theory, the game show track at All-Con.  

That and so much more on the latest HKC!

HKCmark2%2Bcopy.png

joker_darling.gifWe are back, dear listeners, to once again navigate the stegian void of linear story telling, with Hey Kids, Comics issue 172.  This week we tackle a myriad of topics in the second part of "The 10s".  Nic joins Andrew once again to ask Yes, And to a bushel of top ten topics, and fear not important questions are answered.  We wreck your paradigm with such pressing issues as "is the joker just really attracted to the batman", and "SugarMan?"

 

Cole is still in the war room for this one, but his influence is all over this issue.  Show your thanks for all his hard work by heading to All-Con this year, and getting involved.  He will return in short order to regale us with tales of entertainment and victory.

Sugar_Man.pngAgain, this is a rated R show, so out the kids to bed (yeah it's 3 in the afternoon, but you know you want to), and buckle in for part two of THE 10s!

Listen Here

His name is Kevin Spacey

Hey Kids, Comics! #171 - The “10s” Part One

• February 28th, 2016

Longshot_%2528Marvel_Fanfare_38%2529.jpg"People Love Top Ten Lists" - Nic

And frankly I can't disagree.  In an issue of HKC, that is equal parts Buzzfeed, and an Improv Experiment, we explore everything from netflix to babes.  There is also a surprising amount of Longshot for some reason.  We are joined by Nic, and record live from Kentucky.  Ample Warning, we are using a new rig, and not all the bugs are worked out, so the sound might get a little wonky at times, just hang in there, and it will be worth your while.

Cole is still out for this one, and just like when your parents go out on a date night, Nic and I raid the liqueur and get a little dirty with it, so put the kids to bed and get ready for the first installment of  the "10s".

• February 28th, 2016

Once more into the breach, fearless listeners!  HKC is back with issue 170:  The Best Comics We've Ever Played.  With Cole off to focus his boundless energy on what is sure to be an amazing All-Con (side quest), Andrew forges new alliances with old friends to continue the journey into the dark heart of all things Comics.  Joined by Hulking Barbarian, Kurt Maksay; and Guileful Gnome Tinkerer, Jordan Waag, the boys attempt to peel back the layers on the topic of Comic Book Games.  From vast fields of RPG to the peaceful valleys of board games this band plows forward to answer important questions like "Why hasn't Kurt played G.U.R.P.'s" and "Why is Heroclix so much like Freemasonry"? 

So velcro on your cape, and set your GM Screen to stun, your adventure begins NOW...well as soon as you hit up the link below

This show gets a little blue, so maybe not so much for kids...yeah?
