Hey kiddos, just dropping a quick post to some nifty links to stuff around town, and the greater internet suburbs.

First up, it was cool to see a list of 10 cool things to do around The Gravy Cave South aka Lodi, California, that listed my favorite place to score comics The Launchpad. If you’re in the Central Valley area, check it out here.

Looking for a cool monster comic? Check out Monstrous from Greg Wright, Ken Lamung and Travis McIntire. They have reached what they set out to on Kickstarter but that’s no reason for you not to check out the book here.

Over at the awesome Longbox Graveyard, Paul is taking a look at all the new #1’s from Marvel Comics. All of them. Stop by and check out all the reviews here.

It wouldn’t be a post from me without getting distracted by some sort of musical instruments or something music related. It what has to be one of the most talked about new gear announcements in ages, Korg is releasing an analog poly synth for about $500! Check out the specs, videos, and more over at Synthtopia.

I’ll be back with Omega: The Unknown and more soon. Love you, baby bird.


Holiday stuff!


The internet is busy still eating its own tail with some movie about Star Tours or something and why you should love it or why you shouldn’t and something, something, NOSTALGIA, THE FEELS, and I’m just hiding in the mountains. The Force Awakens after the jump, bitches!

DMC and Comics: Secret Origins


Our homies over at Mr. Throwback Thursday had a special guest on their show yesterday, the one and only DMC!


It was a great talk, not only does he have a comic book of his own in the works, but he talks a lot about his own history with comics growing up. He goes into taking inspiration and using superheroes to give him the confidence to do his thing, and how he loved Marvel growing up because they weren’t in some fictional city, but New York, and how that resonated with him. That’s awesome enough, but it’s much more than that.

What really makes it a great talk is just his enthusiasm, after all this time, he’s still a fanboy. He gushes over the MC’s that inspired him, and is just so positive, and humble, you can’t help but smile.
Head over to or find them on Stitcher and iTunes.

Podcast Crossover Action


Until we drop a new episode on ye, you can check out some of the other shows on the High Voltage Radio Network there are a metric butt-load (see, I’m using the metric system after talking to the Wasted folks, thanks Canada) of awesome shows on the network. In fact, you could listen as I talk to Guy from Must Hate Zombies, where I undergo the post apocalyptic, dating game round of questions. We also talk music, the last days of my drinking and so much more here.

Or if you have ever experienced Dungeons, Dragons, or any combination of the two, go check in with Mad Mock. I hopped on with Mock, and Sean from Pittsburgh Nerd for a funny talk about D&D, spiked shoulder pads, magic missiles, and dating werewolves here.

Hey! You got some gravy in my zombie apocalypse!


I just wanted to say a huge thank you to wild man of podcasting, mad genius, hilarious dude, and legitimately good guy Mad Mock from Z-poc Nation for having me on the newest episode, and playing a clip of us talking about baby rentals. I first met Mock as a guest on the Axehole’s Lounge I did with Axeology a little while back and just about fell out of my chair when Z-poc Nation returned and he mocked the spelling of my name and called me a “communist” and referred to us as a couple of “fat, f*cking monsters,” Mad Mock gets it. He is a larger than life personality, like the best in talk radio, he is a podcast giant. We talked a bit about comics, Captain America and all that good stuff. Also on this episode Mad Mock, “Dooms” Dave, and Professor Paige run through the zombie apocalypse survival bracket along with more classic radio drama. Go check it out! You can find the episode on Stitcher, iTunes, and podomatic. Also go check out the Z-Poc Nation YouTube channel. Thanks again,
