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

• November 23rd, 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

• November 7th, 2014

Your Hey Kids, Comics! co-hosts do as well!  In fact this particular decade in the history of comics proved such a broad topic that Andrew Farmer and Cole Houston had to bring a guest to the latest chapter of "Comicades"!
The United States of Geekdom's own Rick Gutierrez brings his experiences from his personal entree into comics to the table.  From the rise of Image to the multiple covers, poly bags, special edition trading cards, and embossed chromium, this was a decisive period.  The bubble that began to inflate in the 80s continued to expand to the point of bursting in this crucial decade.
