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.

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.

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.

Mike and Alex are alone in The Lair and they have a number of important things to discuss. First up, a revisit to Mike’s failed and now-it-turns-out backfiring raw food diet. He should just stick to his regular diet of locally produced cheeses and salted breads. Then, does anyone want to be told that they are a bad driver? Is it just one of those things that everyone just assumes that they are good at? After that, Alex has a spirited defense of our nation’s 39th President, Jimmy Carter. This one’s got it all!

The Slinkiest Panther, John “The Wiggly Reader” Kerschbaum pads his way back into The Panther’s Lair to make his triumphant return to the show. We talk about a number of important topics, such as A Citizen’s Duty to Take Jury Duty Seriously, because plainly a Trial by Jury is a better system than the Medieval Trial by Ordeal, and clearly those are the only two choices. Plus: Mike gets RAW. And a weak stomach. And, of course, our Third Annual Halloween Episode is just around the corner, so the Dads talk at length about the costumes they are making for their daughters, which is just plain adorable.

Mike and Alex crawled into The Panther’s Lair late Sunday evening, shortly after Hurricane Irene made her slow interminable crawl across New York City, and after two or three days of anxiety ridden anticipation, the Panthers were tired! But, ever reliable, they do their best to rally and get it up for a good show. And there’s lots to discuss: Natural Disasters, The Small Press Expo, Book Release Parties and Spotlight Panels. Mike and Alex reveal that they will be presenting one of the awards at the Prestigious Ignatz Gala at SPX, and brainstorm some ideas for comedic content.

Then! Just as the Panthers start to fall asleep, they welcome Gaz “Gary” Gretsky back into The Lair to settle some business. Astute listeners may recall last episode, where Mike confessed that he’d promised to ink a comic for his friend Gary, and had never followed through on that. Gary gets the opportunity to discuss the matter from his point of view. Plus: what is the worst Beatles song of all time, (Answer: Octopus’s Garden) and would you ever eat a bug? And not some halfway palatable bug, like a grasshopper, but some really nasty thing like a house “Eyebrow”.

Then things devolve into an argument about Novelty song, but the Panthers should be excused. We had two natural disasters in New York City last week!

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.

The Famous Panther, Josh Flanagan of iFanBoy, creeps back into The Lair to fill us in on his recent relocation to the State of New Hampshire, land of fireworks. Then the conversation gets controversial, as we get into a heated debate about X-Men; First Class. Mike holds the perfectly reasonable position that yes, it’s perfectly understandable for humans to fear and hate the mutants, but Alex and Josh strenuously disagree.

I know every week we promise a jam-packed show, but this week we really have got a show literally packed with jam. First, some follow-up on last week’s discussion with standup comedian Adam Conover, including the audio of him performing Mike’s soon-to-be-classic “The Thing’s Thing” joke. Then, like a bird-of-prey, Owly cartoonist Andy Runton, swoops back into The Panther’s Lair to talk craft and what’s meaningful to him as a creator. After that, Alex has some news about sandwiches, and Mike asks the tough-questions when it comes to picking out the perfect song to sing at a Karaoke outing. What song could he possibly choose that would make it tough to look him in the eye the next day? Find out here.

And if all that wasn’t enough, there’s the announcement of a new Live Ink Panthers Show, scheduled to take place at the MoCCA Arts Festival on April 10th. So, tune in to hear some early details about that.

Step right up and enter The Panther’s Lair to experience The Greatest Show on Earth! Alex has been to Austin, Texas for the STAPLE convention, so he tells us all about it; then Mike has been to the circus and he’s got lots to say about that – mostly stuff along the lines of “Do the Elephants really enjoy standing on a ball and being made to sit in a seat?” It’s sure to be Fun for the Whole Family!!
