Cold Beer and Comics Episode 17: Chainmail and Ale 

Force Friday came and went and our excitement for The Force Awakens is greater than ever. Here’s what we talked about on this show.

4:40 Beer of the Week: Paradise Valley Grapefruit Ale

8:05 News: Corey feels like Nostradamus as we revisit some of his greatest predictions like the failures of Age of Ultron and Fantastic Four. Corey wrote a great version of FF while watching his dogs poop.  

The Totally Awesome Hulk is coming and he is a Korean-American. Marsh thinks it’s appropriate given the green Korean monster known as soju ... a liquor you never forget but ironically makes your forget everything.

Aftershock Comics has released details about their December releases.

Preacher is coming and Marsh and Corey think the rights may have been given through a random lottery.

Corey goes all fanboy about Kevin Smith and Mallrats 2. Marsh is happy that you can be cool like Stan Lee at 93.

44:55 Beer of the week comic pairing: Paradise Valley Grapefruit Ale and Red Sonja.


47:21 The Force Awakens – what we want to see and don’t want to see. Some of our highlights include Luke wearing a baggy Vader outfit, underwater lightsabers, and the return of some our favorite characters no matter how ridiculous it may seem. MTFBWY!

We take a departure from our usual show this week. Foxie couldn't make the show so Corey, Miguel and Marsh decided to get to know each other a little better. The result is a 'getting to know you' show. The topics range from G.I. Joe to Dominique Moceanu to opening the perfect business.
