Ep. 089 “The Force Awakens”

It is the year 2016 and the geeks have truly inherited the earth. The entire world has been gripped by Star Wars fever and Ben and Dan are ready to weigh in on all the awesomeness spilling forth from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

Before diving into our review of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, we start things off in typical fashion with Top o’ the Pile. Dan talks up The Goon, Vol. 6: Chinatown and Ben get’s the ball droid rolling with a healthy discussion about Marvel’s Star Wars comic line. Then it’s off to the movies.

SPOILER WARNING: This episode contains in-depth conversation of plot points from the movie. We discuss the characters, the themes, the big reveals and give our opinions on all of it. If you are somehow listening to a comicbook podcast and have not seen The Force Awakens, show some self-respect, get to the theater and see it immediately, because SPOILER ALERT – it’s great!

After an hour-plus of movie talk, we wrap things up with a spacefaring Can o’ Beans that includes Jean-Claude Mézières and Pierre Christin’s Valérian and Laureline series and Rick Remender’s hard-drinking space western, Fear Agent.
