A lot of Slush Pile topics this week: What does Dr. Doom’s voice sound like, and how could you lose in a Latverian election against a guy called Dr. Doom anyway? And, what’s the deal with Birthday Cards telling you facts about the year you were born? And, did you know Jamie Foxx has his own radio show? And what’s the deal with this Vine thing all the kids are into these days?

Deadhorse creator Eric Grissom creeps into Panther’s Lair this week to discuss the very exciting meteor strike in Russia, and whether or not it would be very cool to die in such circumstances. We also talk about how things were from the Gremlins point of view in the movie Gremlins, and Mike makes lots and lots of fuss and build-up about a Downton Abbey joke that’s sure not to disappoint.

It’s The Voyage Home, part 2. After technical issues prevented us from discussing the 13 sexiest ways to die last episode, we enlist Tony Consiglio as a special guest to help us review them this week. Also, Tony tells us about a recent altercation he got himself into at a local Pet Smart, which culminated in things getting settled outside.

Midtown Comics big-wig, and star of the upcoming National Geographic pilot, Comic Store Heroes, Thor Parker creeps into The Lair this week to explain to us how the show is not like The Big Bang Theory, and how he became a vegetarian for unrequited love, and then later became a vegan out of bitter spite. Plus, Mike can’t throw a wiffle-ball and Alex gets into an argument with some New York City firefighters.

Alex and Mike are back in The Lair with a jam-packed episode! First, Mike’s Next Big Announcement Which Will Surely Have No Effect On The Regularity Of The Show (get read for lots of Ink Banthas episodes in November…), then Alex’s Man of The Week: a man who collects his own offspring like some people collect Vinyl LPs. A discussion about stress and decision-making, where unfortunately Mike implies that he’d always make the healthy eating choice. On the show he states he’d always choose the Fruit over the Candy, but he should have admitted in reality, he would choose a bowl of Heavy Cream over anything else. We all have our weaknesses. THEN! The topic of Mike applying to be a contestant on SURVIVOR is raised once again, but this time Alex has a better idea: The Panthers should apply to be on The Amazing Race. All one of them needs to do is learn how to drive a stick-shift, and the prize money is as good as theirs!

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.

Also in this episode, Second Life, and Christmas Card round-robins that spark outrage.

This week it’s just Alex and Mike in The Panther’s Lair, discussing that new Rise of the Planet of the Apes movie (or, RotPotA) and how great it is. This leads us back into a familiar discussion about Animal Rights, and how all animals have them (except scallops). Then, a conversation about Parents and Comics, some interesting new announcements, and Alex calls out an cartoonist who Has Wronged Him, and asks for advice.
