I’m the Host A slightly deeper look at the media we all consume

With the Guardians of the Galaxy and Big Hero 6 getting surprisingly big-budget movies for less-well-known comics, we ask what comics would be great to pull for developing a new series or cinematic release? 

Kurt brings in Marvel's Exiles and Image's Invincible as examples, but with suggestions from Ally, Blake, and the Grown-Ass Geeks, you'll have plenty of new books to check out. Which ones will work? Which ones won't? And why? Tune in, true believers!

Editor Note: Blake was ONCE AGAIN wrong: it was in fact NOT Jon Hamm on the 2016 Big Fat Quiz of the Year show, but rather Rob Delaney. 

Blake Note: But seriously, just look at them; can you blame me for thinking they were the same guy? http://i.imgur.com/jqeBf0c.jpg

Due to the holiday, and Kurt and Ally moving we were unable to have the next full episode ready for you, but we were able to get our first listener response episode up. 

Jondar contacts us about our episode on the Lobster. And Ally promises Blake will do a voice for every listener question we answer. 

We'll have our next episode out on Timer soon, in the mean time enjoy this short episode. See you soon.
