Jimmy was at San Diego Comic Con and all we got was this lousy t-shirt! It was a crazy busy time and he covered a ton of press rooms from Orphan Black to Supergirl to The Walking Dead.

Jimmy talked to Jeffrey Brown about the first book in his new series Lucy and Andy Neanderthal. He also talked to old buddy John Layman about the Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens comic he’s writing as well as wrapping up his big hit Chew. And finally, you can sit in on Jimmy’s annual therapy session…uh…interview with psychologist friend Dr. Andrea Letamendi. They talk about the psychology of some recent superhero films and more! No news or reviews or Top 3 in this episode as he’s still recovering from it all. But you get a quick recap with some highlights! 

Over the next few weeks, there wont be a regular format show.

Reviews: Kong of Skull Island #1, New Super-Man #1, Powerpuff Girls Vol 3 #1, Ghostbusters

No rest for the podcaster! The epic 700th episode went down last week and now it’s off to San Diego for Comic Con! Because of all the mad planning and prepping, Jimmy does a quickie solo episode to let you know what his media coverage/plans are for this year’s SDCC. He recruits some friends to do some mp3 reviews for him so it’s not entirely all Jimmy all the time. You’re welcome! Thanks to Rich, Emily, Monica and John for sending their audio reviews in. News includes: a new Jessica Jones comic is coming from Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos, DC/Vertigo is bringing a comic book sequel to the 1987 film The Lost Boys, Betty Boop returns to comic books via Dynamite Entertainment, Dark Horse announces more adult coloring books including Star Trek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Bryan Lee O’Malley has a new graphic novel trilogy coming your way. 

Jimmy will do an SDCC recap next week and will probably just release SDCC specials for 2-3 weeks to catch up on life. So, no regular format podcast for at a bit. Hope you enjoy all the massive coverage he’s going to get! And if you see him out there, say “hi”!
