The Near Mint Comic Show

Near Mint Ep. 038 - Rocked by Granitecon

May 27, 2011

Ben and Josh return with another "Live" episode , this time on location from the floor of the Granite State Comic Con.  We open up this mammoth episode with a recap of Free Comic Book Day and the pre-Granitecon Drink & Draw, which Ben took part in once again.  Then we throw a shameless plug to Josh and PJ Huot's new MMA show on WGAM– honest-to-goodness real-live radio! Tony Moore missed the show this year but we don't let it dampen our spirits, diving into lots of comic talk, including Fear Itself, Osborn, FF, and Kick Ass 2.  Then we welcome listener, Dan Bertwell and con-virgin, Mike SMith to the show.  Mike gives the wide-eyed newbie perspective and agrees to take on a homework assignment.  Later, Ben & Josh give thier thoughts on the Thor movie and Calrton Greene of Eat Sleep Comics stops by to sing talk comics, Kumbaya and drop a few f-bombs. Finally, we wrap up the show by interviewing two filmmakers.  First, we sit down with Mike Dogherty, producer/director of Browncoats: Redemption – a Whedon-sanctioned fan-made sequel to Serenity.  After that, we chat with Pasha Roberts, director of the upcoming animated feature, Silver Circle. Tuck in the kids and put on a pot of coffee because this is a long one, but it's Chock Full o' Near Mint goodness! Visit our Facebook page and check out our photos from Granitecon. Music in this episode by: Bentframe, Mötley Crüe, Curtis Mayfield, Citizen Cope, Gary Portnoy, Sonny Rhodes, Europe
