It’s The Ink Banthas Show! Mike is wrapped up in house buying and moving mayhem, so it’s a Very Special All Star Wars Episode this week with Alex and guest host: Pete the Retailer. Hopefully this will become a recurring feature, as I (Mike) really enjoyed listening to the two of them talk about everybody’s favorite trilogy (and, I guess, uh, the prequels too). They make some very sound points, especially in picking apart Luke’s “plan” to save Han from Jabba’s clutches. Have a listen!

Friend of the Show, Julia Wertz returns triumphantly to The Lair to discuss a variety of topics. One, a story Mike has about his bike commute which Julia rates a B-. Two, a discussion about Hollywood adaptations of our comics, which Julia rates a B+. And three, a lengthy discussion of Brozillians, Food-Tubes, Porky-Pigging, and Vajazzlin’, which gets straight A++++’s from all of us. Seriously, what have The Youngs got to deal with in this day and age, where the pressure’s on to have perfectly bleached, waxed, and diamond-encrusted nether-regions? We should all feel lucky to be so old!

An experiment this week: what kind of podcast can the fellas record when one of them (me) has just awoken from an impromptu nap? The answer: a pretty OK one, I think! We give sort of a half-answer to a listener question about popular webcomics, claiming we don’t spend much time on the show discussing comics, and then proceed to spend an entire hour talking about comics. In addition to webcomics, there’s the upcoming MoCCA show, and Alex’s Special Guest Status. We get quite in-depth discussing some recent Rob Liefeld news, breaking down both the definition of the word “Hipster”, but also asking why Liefeld gets such a bad rap. But, it’s not all comics, fear not! Alex tells us about the days when he used to be a morbid reader of books about serial killers, and Mike introduces us to a new term he just learned: Porky Pigging. What does it mean when you say “Oh, I was porky-pigging the other day”? Listen, and find out!

Alex returns from Sunny Spain and Watery Amsterdam with a report of all his adventures. It’s a short but sweet episode as we welcome Alex back to America, the land of Proper Extra-Large Clothing.
