Alex is about to embark on a trip to Europe to attend a Spanish convention, so we discuss all the things he has planned on his journey, and how it’s good he gets to impress his wife every now and then by taking her to foreign comics shows. The topics this week run the gamut: Amsterdam, Yanni, Our Insignificance In This Vast and Cold Universe. They Might Be Giants, Phish, Dexters, and psychopaths. Flying men, Icaruses, Jet-Packs, and more!

Mike returns from his recent trip to the Angouleme Comics Festival in France, and gives Alex a lengthy run-down of all the goings-ons. As is his custom, Mike takes a “vacation from vegetarianism” when traveling abroad, though unfortunately for the animals, it’s possible that this most recent journey could have been a game-changer. Also, Mike has to come to terms with the fact that he really enjoys visiting foreign countries, but learning a second language is quite simply beyond him at this advanced stage in life. Struggling with the language barrier has simply an unavoidable fact of life.

The Panthers are back in The Lair, with a lengthy discussion about drawing political satire cartoons. Plus, we run down the list of 2012’s upcoming Nerd Movie Releases, and talk about what looks exciting and what doesn’t. The Hunger Games? Seriously, it’s a movie about kids fighting each other to the death, and people can’t wait for it to arrive? And what about that Hobbit. Plus: Mike went to see Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, and got into an altercation with a livery cab driver. And lots more!!
