A radical change of pace this week: Mike and Alex spend the hour discussing the projects they’re currently working on and the differences and changes in their approach to writing. Yes, we answer questions like “What kind of ink do we use?”, and “How are comics edited?”, and “Where do ideas come from?”. Alex tells us about his new book, which is kinda, sorta, about people in their late 30’s/early 40’s, and Mike explains all about what he’s working on, which is sorta, kinda about some people, y’know? And, like, things that they do, and stuff. After this chat, you won’t be able to wait for the books to drop!

Lot’s of important business in this episode, including a very special announcement about the future of the Title Cards Illustrations project. First, there’s a correction about last week’s episode, and then a brief update on Mike’s time at the Small Press Expo. Yes, he threw up on one of the nights, but was it the cool-I-partied-so-hard kind of throwing up, or is it perhaps a signal that something’s physically wrong with Mike’s digestive system? Maybe in a future episode there’ll be a hilarious recounting of Mike’s trip to a gastroenterologist! Also: to help balance out last week’s ALL-NFL-HOUR, this week is SHOWTUNES IN REVUE!

Outstanding Comic Ignatz Nominee Brendan Leach creeps into the Lair this week to argue the ins and outs of being a sports fan. How should someone who doesn’t live in America choose which NFL team to follow? Why should people who live in cities without teams all of a sudden care when a team (The Las Vegas “Vajazzle”) suddenly appears. And, of course, is Mike allowed to root for both The Giants and The Jets (The answer: YES). Also, would you rather be in the Guinness Book of World Records for being a pituitary gland giant, or for being the owner of a disgusting and gnarled seven foot fingernail?

This episode contains an especially embarrassing moment for Mike, when it appears he can’t remember the name of a book he read a week ago, and claimed to really like. This proves that it becomes impossible to retain facts after a certain age. Also, after a certain age, it becomes very difficult to enjoy riding kiddie rides with your child, since all kiddie rides seem to be designed around the principle of spinning in circles. It’s all fun and games until Dad hurls out the side of the Balloon Ride Spin. Also, some macabre tales of death, and a little bit of talk about the comics industry as a welcome change.
