Geek Brunch Episode 95

Mike is joined by Bill (dbm) and Jay (modernlover) from the forums to discuss if Kate from Manhunter is fit to be a mother, why is there so much love for Ragdoll, Jack of Fables, how to walk down the Streets of Glory, how to Hotwire a car, and how the Luna brothers make beautiful kills using a Sword. We also discuss how Archie married into money, how to seek Vengeance during a full Moon, why X-Force is simply one of the best mutant titles out there, what is up with the Bucky from Heroes Reborn, why you would want to have an Executive Assistant, how to use a Mainframe, Absolution vs. being Irredeemable, how to avoid huge mosquitoes from another planet trying to sting you, how to join Sinbad’s group with simply cooking pans, and why you would not want to date Salem’s Daughter. On the TV side we discuss three different opinions of Community, how women pee in a cup (Always Sunny in Philadelphia), how to join a Glee club, and how a Cougar got into Town, and finally how Bill played Rugby and lived to tell about it. We then take a trip down 500 days of Summer, determine what it is like to be a hunter in the night, The Most Dangerous Game, and how the French can freak our shit, what you should not do with a Dead Girl, how to defeat a stink monster (Reeker) at 2:30am, Bromance with I Love You Man, and if you should buy a Surrogate. All this and more as we talk about eating healthy and not eating healthy.

Another Long Box

As long time listeners of Comic Book Noise know, one of the recurring themes of the show is when I find another long box that I thought was long gone. I have moved a LOT in my adult life and I have made the mistake of leaving long boxes at one place or another. Now that I have been living in my own homes (as opposed to living with family or renting from friends), I have slowly been reassembling my comic book collection. Since I have started the podcast, I have found comics at my mother’s house, at the house of my ex-wife’s mother, in my best friend’s basement and in the garage of my sister’s ex-husband (also my former housemate).

Some times, long boxes just appear. I’m not sure where they come from, but I know they are mine. I recognize some of the comics. For some reason, those familiar comic books are not in my database (which is Comic Collector 4.2, for those of you wondering), which means that in the grand scheme of things, they don’t exist. I even have piles of loose comics in the database as Location: None.

There has been a long box sitting near my desk for a while now and I have never really paid attention to it. I have always meant to put it with the other boxes, but it wasn’t in the way, so no big rush. Today I decided to take a look at it and discovered that it is not in the database. And like I said, if it isn’t in the database, it doesn’t exist.

Hurray for free comics that spontaneously exist.

I’m not sure what is in the box, but just quickly looking in the box shows:

  • a lot of American Flagg (including most of the DeMatteis/Badger run and the Time Squared special),
  • Grendel #1 (featuring Christine Spar),
  • all twelve issues Howard Chaykin’s Amerikan Flagg,
  • Infinity Gauntlet (the entire mini),
  • Infinity War (just the first issue),
  • Infinity Crusade (just the first issue),
  • Infinity Inc (including the annuals),
  • Invaders (including the battle against The Crusaders and the return of Union Jack)
  • Invasion (the entire thing),
  • a bunch of old Iron Man issues (Layton artwork. The stuff around the Sunturion times),
  • Judgment Day Aftermath (by Alan Moore and Gil Kane),
  • the first 30 issues of Nexus/Nexus Legends,
  • Starman Secret Files and Origins (which I didn’t even know I ever bought),
  • a bunch of the Millennium Giants crossover issues,
  • Superman Red Superman Blue with the 3D glasses and the other Superman reprint issue,
  • Superman Forever with the Alex Ross cover,
  • Trinity #1 (Green Lantern, The Darkstars and L.E.G.I.O.N.),
  • A long run of Walter Simonson’s X-Factor (very underrated stuff),
  • The first five X-Factor annuals,
  • X-Force #1 (I wonder how much this is worth now),
  • Two copies of X-Men #1 (ditto),
  • and a lot of grass clippings in the bottom of the box.

It looks like I have to do a lot of bagging because none of the Iron Man or X-Factor issues are in bags and they look like it. The issues are readable, but they feel dirty. I also need to confirm their existence by adding them to the database.

Who knows, I might even get a chance to read some comic books. If I do, then I will shamelessly steal from Just Bill and talk about what I enter into the database.
