The Near Mint Comic Show

Near Mint Ep. 036 - Secret Pleasure

April 25, 2011

In what we really thought would be a short episode (false!) Ben and Josh talk about the blockbuster month of May headed your way.  First up is Boston Comic Con (April 30 - May 1st), where Ben Peirce will be moderating spotlight panels with Frank Quitely and Tim Sale.  Then, in the coming weeks we have 'live' shows lined up for Free Comic Book Day (May 7) and Granite State Comic Con (May 15). Next up in the episode, we run down the list of Eisner Award nominations and make our predictions on who will win.  We discuss some recent reads and Josh hurls some vitriol towards Marvel for spoiling their books in the mainstream media months before their release. And finally, we roll up our sleeves and play What's in the Box? Listen in wonder as Ben and Josh rifle through a long box full 'o treasures from a recent garage sale. Ben loses all capacity for vocabulary, Josh puts his Rainman-like recollection of Spider-Man covers on display, and the Hulk makes eggs Benedict.  There's enough 90's books and Atlantis Attacks annuals for everyone, so listen in and enjoy! Music in this episode by: the Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye
