Episode LII - The Obligatory Free Comic Book Day Edition

Remember "Free Comic Book Day?" Remember the joys you found as an adult, as you stepped into the funnybook shop, all wide-eyed and anxious to get your grubby little mitts on the four-color exploits of your favorite science-heroes? And remember how your little face lit up when the man told you the comic was absolutley free! You ran home to your wife, so excited you could barely speak? If any of this sounds familiar, please seek help immediately. Regardless, the Comic Book Haters crew (joined with Cappy, unfortunately) take a look back at FCBD 2006. Some surprises will be heard, especially to those who follow this link.

To Soar Amongst the Flyers

With the upcoming summer season, the heart of every true dork turns away from all responsibilities, instead favoring a love unspeakable. Yes, it's convention time, and the Comic Book Haters are giving you a chance to triple your investment, without costing you a single penny. You do the math. Regardless, we submit unto our legion of fans this humble flyer, to be printed and distributed at your lesiure. Should you, perhaps, visit a comic book convention within the unknowable future, think back on the years of entertainment they've given you, and print out a flyer or two. If nothing else, use it to reacquaint yourself with Bill Alger's stunning rendition of the Comic Book Robot. Other desirable locations are comic shops, used record stores, brewpubs, church socials, church anti-socials, anti-social church functions, and other varied events. Grab this link, print some out on someone else's dime (at work, as an obvious example), and enjoy a higher quality of life. A "4-up" variation is forthcoming. Or, more likely, fifth- or sixth-coming.

The Second Fiftieth Episode

The Comic Book Haters 50th podcast celebration continues. This time around, the CBH crew takes a look into the far flung past, as well as the distant present. Old friends are reunited in what could possibly be the most shocking revelation ever to be recorded by mankind. It could just as easily NOT be the most shocking revelation ever recorded. Most likely, that's the case. Regardless, the insanities continue in this, their second 50th episode. Gather together with family members and loved ones as the Comic Book Haters welcome you into their fold.
Special thanks to Bouncin' Billy Alger for the over-the-top rendition of Comic Book Robot. Please support Mr. Alger in everything he does, and offer him hugs and kisses should you pass him on the street one day.

The Comic Book Haters' Fiftieth Episode

It's finally here: the 50th episode of the world's favorite (and only) comic-book based 'Hating' podcast! Take a walk down memory-loss lane with a couple of guys whose memories have long ago been devastated by tacos, beer, funnybooks and novelty combs.

And by 'Enjoying,' we mean 'Getting drunk by yourself and listening to.' And by 'listening to,' we mean 'downloading, storing on your hard drive for a few weeks, and ultimately deleting.'

CBH Member Wanted for Questioning

The Comic Book Haters will not be broadcasting a new episode this Monday. Unfortunately, one of the cast was apprehended and retained for questioning regarding an illicit incident which took place on or near the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Though the identity of the culprit has not yet been verified, we would like to maintain 'Radio Silence' on the matter until a penalty has been issued. Our hearts go out to you, Schooly G. We sincerely hope the bitch dies before she's able to testify.
