Instant Depths #26 - Monkey Fest 2011


It's monkey mania as Jay and Adam tackle the terrible F. Murray Abraham movie, Blood Monkey and one of George Romero's Monkey Shines. Jay spends more time talking about the awesome new book Ready Player One than he does about Blood Monkey and Adam shares how he re-enacts Voltron with his cats on a daily basis.  Instant Depths will take a break for the holidays and will be somewhat sporadic for the rest of the year before returning in January 2012 with a new bi-weekly schedule.

Acmecast #51 - Cheers to You!


Jermaine, Stephen and Frank have a great conversation with Nightwing, Deathstroke and Gates of Gotham writer Kyle Higgins (and surprise guest Alec Siegel) about why Nightwing is the better Batman, how to direct a better Watchmen and how to lay out the building blocks of Gotham City!

Since a convention just wrapped, they also do their own version of Man vs. Food from the Triangle area and tear through the comics at the table!

Instant Depths #24 - TROLL!


Adam and Jay cover two recent addtions to the Netflix Instant library: Kevin Smith's "horror" film Red State and the Norwegian mock documentary Trollhunter. Our hosts also attempt to unravel the mystery of Netflix's often innacurate film summaries and stumble upon previously unoticed errors in the listings for film run times.  In addition, Adam questions the structural integrity of dog cages and Jay gives a mini lesson on lighting.

NC Comic Con 2012 - Look at Banner, Michael!

I'm not always the most practically capable creative person. I can draw decently, but not enough to do my own stories. I can't sit down long enough to knock out a script or short story. So it's always exciting for me when I'm just driving around, an idea pops into my head, and I'm able to make it a reality. This banner is one of those things.

Acmecast #50 - We Forgot Our Anniversary!


Jermaine, Stephen, Frank and Adam completely ignore the one year anniversary of Acmecast because there's just too much going on! Writer/artist Brian "Smitty" Smith joins the gang in the studio for the introduction and then Eisner Award winning writer Ed Brubaker calls in to discuss the world-quaking events of Fear Itself #7.1!

They also do one of their wider ranging editions of Comics at the Table, jumping from DC to Marvel to independent releases, floppies and original graphic novels and everything in between!

Reading Order for 11.2.11

If you've listened to the podcast, you probably know that my sorting ritual is a sacred part of the reading of my comics. Frank and I are chilling at Caribou Coffee and since I went through the public spectacle of divvying my books into a bunch of piles for all the caffeinated world to see, I'd just share it with you all as well!
