SPOT-ON PETER GRIFFIN IMPERSONATOR DOES STAND-UP AT COSPLAY CONTEST
At the 2014 Allentown Comic Con there was a cosplay contest judged by celebrity cosplayers Riki Lecotey a.k.a. “Riddle” and Nicole Marie Jean. To keep the crowd entertained while they deliberated, they asked a spot-on Peter Griffin cosplayer to take the mic and he completely KILLED it! Fox should hire this guy to go on tour or something.

A LITTLE BIT ON: THE LAST WEST
During our adventures at Wizard World Philly we ran into Lou Iovino and Evan Young, the creators of the mind-bogglingly complex and awesome graphic novel The Last West. After getting funding for the first volume on Kickstarter, the second volume has surpassed its goal and i for one can’t wait to get my grubby mitts on it.
Watch these two super passionate (and insanely nice) dudes talk about their project, then go pick up the first volume over on Amazon, Comixology, or wherever else you can get comics.

Stay tuned for our review of The Last West Volume 1 coming soon! Spoiler alert: it’s really, really good.

WEEKLY COMIC REVIEWS 6.11.2014

Here’s our latest video review featuring comics released on Wednesday, June 11 2014. Gonna’ be completely honest, most of this week’s reads were complete caca and garboski with a few gems sprinkled in. Check out the video below to watch us talk smack on the turds and gush over the good stuff.

As always, comments on these are truly appreciated and you can help our YouTube channel grow by subscribing and clicking that thumbs-up button. It really, really helps.

Also, this show needs a catchy name. Weekly Comic Picks was dumb since it sounds like we’re recommending top picks, so this week I changed it to Weekly Comic Reviews, but that’s sooooo boooooring. I’m torn between Comic Book Casserole because I thought of it while making a casserole the other day, or Comic Book Real Talk because it has sass and we don’t mess around with silly scores, but that just sounds kind of generic.

Whoever comes up with the best name in the comments section wins a prize.

This week we review Nailbiter #2, Rise of the Magi #1, Big Trouble In Little China #1, Black Widow #7, and Original Sin #3.

We took some advice from one of our viewers and tried to make this episode as spoiler-free as possible which also makes for shorter, more digestible episodes. Check it out and let us know what you think.

If you like these videos, please show your support by giving them a Thumbs-Up, leaving a comment, and/or subscribing to our channel. It would really mean a lot, plus it’s nice to have some form of interaction with you guys so we know that other people besides us are into this kind of stuff.

We hope you like this episode. Until next week, let us know what you’re reading in the comments!

PAST EPISODES
WEEKLY COMIC PICKS FOR 5-28-2014
Okay, so I’m pretty late in getting this one up. My bad. Life and stuff.
Anyway, this week we talk about Trees #1, Inhuman #2, and Avengers #30. We also do an all new Quick Picks segment featuring C.O.W.L. #1 and Southern Bastards #2.
Check out this week’s (i.e. last week’s) video below.

We got some awesome comic recommendations from you guys on the last episode, so we’ll try and feature at least one in this week’s episode. Which should TOTALLY be up on time this week if I don’t slack like a jerky loser.
In the mean time, go read Matt Fraction’s super ultra amazing Hawkeye. If you think superheroes are dumb, you will love it. If you love superheroes, Hawkeye will become your new favorite. Get the fancy hardcover collecting the first 11 issues HERE or the cheap paperback version with issues 1-5 here.

DAILY GRAFFITI: THE SICKEST ‘AKIRA’ GRAFFITI EVER [GALLERY]
Let us celebrate this crowning achievement in storytelling and animation by admiring a bunch of walls that some insanely talented jerks vandalized.

Katsuhiro Otomo’s Akira is masterpiece - a legendary staple of pure creativity and artistic genius. Its reach has spread beyond the niche fandom of nerd culture and made its way into the mainstream. This highly influential film (and the manga that it was based on) has inspired many of the most well-known writers, directors, musicians, and artists of our time. Akira’s presence can be felt everywhere from car commercials to rap videos and even the latest blockbuster movies. While the film version was released in the late 80’s, it remains a cinematic spectacle the likes of which have never been seen even decades later.

DEAR XBOX ONE HATERS, MICROSOFT IS LISTENING
Microsoft’s backpedaling continues! Shortly after announcing that you’ll no longer need an Xbox LIVE Gold subscription to use certain streaming services such as Netflix, they’ve announced that a $399 Kinnectless Xbox One bundle will be available this July.
Gizmodo seems to think that killing off the Kinnect this early in the console’s lifecycle will make the Xbox One worse in the long run. The Internet is reacting and one of my favorite comments comes from @toythatkills on Twitter who says "The only E3 promise left for Microsoft to backpedal on now is the actual existence of the Xbox One."
When Microsoft announced last year that there wouldn’t be an Xbox One bundle without Kinnect at launch, people were furious. Now they announce a cheaper bundle without it and people are STILL mad.
At least they’re trying, right?
I mean, sure, Microsoft was a big part of introducing DLC and microtransactions to home consoles, thus destroying a good portion of what little purity was still left in the industry (now it’s okay for developers to put out half-assed games and sell the rest and patch the bugs later. JOY!), but at least they’re listening, right?
Oh yeah, and Titanfall, guys. They have Titanfall.
