Welcome to episode 125. A lot of blood, sweat, and re-takes were done to bring the semi-milestone to you. But it was all worth it, since this episode starred executive producer and longtime listener Arch Stanton, who brings his encyclopedic comic knowledge and much-needed normalcy to the table.
Introduction – Jake descends further into madness as he fights against his HOA constituents and tells America how to do sports. I learn my town has a meth problem and do my civic duty against my will.
[42:15] News – Garth Ennis gets back on the Punisher saddle, and at some point Arch tells us about this amazing toy.
Mail Call – Mercifully, there is none.
[1:02:00] Bullet Points – Here’s the comics we covered:
- Punisher Annual #1, where Frank and Jameson go to space.
- Punisher #12-14, where questions no one asked are answered, and fanservice ramps up to 11. Also, that Kingpin challenge is real.
- Savage Avengers #3-4, WHERE IS MY FAMILY???
[ 2:43:30] Flashbacks – We continue with Paul Scheer’s Cosmic Ghost Rider Destroys Marvel History #3-4 and man these guys put in some work. We then do the jet ski meme comic Punisher: War Journal #19.
[3:45:55] Discharge Papers– First off, Arch’s audio cut out halfway through this segment, even though he was with us on Skype. I’ve shortened this segment down a bit due to that error. Anyway, Jake tell us why we need Samurai Cop in our lives and I explain why I want to be reincarnated into an anime girl who is a degenerate gambler.
