Episode 2 – “Kirkmania!”

Everyone in comics is talking about the “Kirkman Manifesto” and we couldn’t wait to get in on the discussion.  In a special edition of Ben & Josh’s Near Mint Comic Show, the boys sit down to discuss Robert Kirkman’s mission statement, their reactions, and what it says about the state of comics.

Ben & Josh are moving but the Podcasts keep rolling …

With both of us moving in the next week, we knew it might be a while before we could get back “in the studio” so we released this conversation as it’s own Episode.  We’ll be following up with another full-length Episode in the next couple weeks featuring news, reviews, and a look ahead upcoming releases.


Ben and Josh started a podcast…wait, who’s Ben and Josh?

If you stopped upon this site on purpose, thanks for doing so. If you’re here by accident, WAIT!!!!! Don’t go

Here’s the deal: my buddy Ben and I have been comics fans for years. We’ve collected, watched the various movies/cartoons and even attended a few Cons in our day and with backgrounds in media and entertainment, doing a podcast seemed like a natural progression. Ben was the driving force as he is a podcast fiend (zombie?) and is a technical whiz at setting everything up and making it sound great. Me? I’m just a Spider-Man fan that likes some other stuff, the perfect foil for my comics-addicted friend.

So that’s that. You can learn more about us by listening to our first ‘cast, now on ITunes or on Switchpod. New shows will be out every few weeks and we’ll post info about those and more here on our blog site.

Thanks for listening and Excelsior/Huzzah!
