Blammo creator, Noah Van Sciver, calls into the Panther’s Lair from an undisclosed location out of the streets of Denver, Colorado, providing a heightened sense of tension for the entire episode, as we worry he may be struck by a speeding car at any moment. Speaking of cars, Mike’s just been to the International Car Show, and marveled at the new line of 2012 Fords and Chevys. Also, we respond to a listener question about whether we have pop-culture rules for our significant others. For example, could any of us really be with a lady who doesn’t like Peter Jackson’s Lord of The Rings? Is that a deal-breaker?

A while back, Alex was wondering if there was room in the show for a recurring “Star Wars Minute” feature. This week we find out the answer: NO. Any attempt to talk about Star Wars for one minute, clearly devolves into a half-hour segment about the quality of the prequels; the quality of Return of the Jedi; the quality of the action figures, and on and on… We can’t afford to do this every week! So, here’s the one and only Star Wars minute. But, don’t fret, non Star Wars fans, we’ve got The Desert Panther in the house, and before we get to arguing about nerd minutia, we have a follow-up on The Sexy Human chair story from episode 87, and a lively discussion about gift-giving.

Daniel Spottswood, John Kerschbaum, and Mike Lapinski joined us in the Mobile Panther Lair as we recorded a live episode of the podcast. Seeing’s as we were recording at the MoCCA Arts Festival, we made a conscious attempt to keep things comics-focused. Topics include: Conventions. What is the Point of Them?; Biggest Professional Regrets; Best Convention Celebrity Encounters; and more! Thanks again to Daniel, John, and Mike for joining us, and thanks to everyone who came out to see the show.

I was happy to welcome TwoTime Ink Panthers Show guest Dustin Harbin into the Professional Panther’s Lounge for a chat about his comics career. Since getting to know Dustin, just a few short years ago, he’s made the transition from Comics-Dabbler, to Full-Time This-Is-How-I-Make-My-Living Cartoonist, and this was a nice opportunity to check in and see how that’s going. Spoiler Alert: Dustin reveals pretty early on that it’s not been great for the bank-balance, but towards the end of our chat he also reveals he’s been tapped to host the Ignatz Awards at this year’s SPX Festival, so it’s not all doom and gloom.

The Desert Panther, Tony Consiglio, joins us in The Lair to discuss a number of hot topics: First, Mike is now American, and we find out if his fellow Panthers really do consider him an equal now. Second: the strange case of the sexy man who turned into a chair. Third: Tony has to explain a complicated lovemaking position to his mother. Fourth: Why is it OK to laugh about Italian stereotypes? Tony doesn’t see the humor in it, but Mike and Alex are all like, aaaah, shaddap you face!
