099 - Not Dead Yet
Join the guys one more time, for a reunion of the mighty Graphic Novice Comic Book Podcast, as Nickel and VF reminisce over their 6 month absence, and triumphant return. If you're looking for a podcast that discusses weddings and chicken farming, this is the episode you've been waiting for. Even though Nickel refused to take the time to put together an outline, all your favorite segment bumpers make their return... The lack of formal comic news doesn't stop us from loading the show with the sweet sounds of Creed and laser beams. Nickel defends the longest standing championship run in Marvel Trivia Box history, which is coincidentally the exact number of days since we last recorded an episode. In a hybrid version of reviews and comic news, Nickel discusses Secret Empire, and VF provides some insight into the new Batman event, Metal. VF touches on some of the books he's read in the past couple weeks, Nickel opts out, and the guys avoid any tangible discussion regarding the future of the show. Stay tuned, and thanks for listening.

098 - The Death of Graphic Novice - Part 9 of 10: Left At The Alter
After The Salty Language Podcast leaves us at the alter in our pretty white wedding dresses, Episode 98 happens, and The Graphic Novice Comic Book Podcast is one step closer to its untimely demise. The guys discuss some general ongoings in each other's lives before proceeding with an always insightful and intelligent discussion on the wide world of comics. In Comic News this week Nickel and The Velvet Fog discuss Logan, Marvel's recent sales woes and other timely topics. Make sure you tune in to listen to Nickel's monumental performance in the Marvel Trivia Box segment. There is no "Rapid-Fire" Review segment this episode, but the guys do look forward to new releases coming out March 8 & March 15, 2017. Thanks for listening folks.

097 - The Death of Graphic Novice - Part 8 of 10: The Velvet Fog Returns
Not dead yet... The Velvet Fog returns from a prolonged absence and the Graphic Novice Comic Book Podcast makes its way back to the airwaves. Nickel & VF discuss their absence, and spend the majority of the podcast not talking about comics... but sort of talking about comics. Bumpers are once again rolled. After a lot of off-topic chatter, the conversation eventually makes it to "Comic News" and the decline of Marvel's comic sales... An old familiar subject, Nickel bitches about stuff... Other topics include: digital codes, The Batman Lego movie, Riverdale on Netflix, Iron Fist on Netflix, and Legion of FX. In the "Rapid Fire Review" segment Nickel & VF cover books released on February 15 and February 22, 2017 as well as the books scheduled for release on March 1st. Thanks to Desmond Hassing, of two many discontinued podcasts to name, for joining Nickel on Episode 94.2, and a huge thanks to everyone who is still listening. Stay Classy.

094.2 - The Underground Conversation Sessions - Desmond Hassing
Join Nickel from the Graphic Novice Comic Book Podcast as he tries to kill the time while VF recovers from the black plague, and records some conversations with old friends. In this session, Nickel sits down with Desmond Hassing of "Musings of a Geek", "Arkham Social Hour", and "Slackademia" podcasting fame. Desmond had as many podcasts as he has arts degrees, but its late and we can't remember them all... The conversation starts with the best of intentions, but after hours of trying to figure out how to record, Nickel is unprepared to steer clear of conversations revolving around politics, twitter etiquette, or Riverdale. There is some comic talk mixed in there, but you'll have to look pretty hard to find it.

096 - The Death of Graphic Novice - Part 7 of 10
Join Nickel & The Velvet Fog for one of the final episodes of the Graphic Novice Comic Book Podcast. The audio quality is a bit of a throwback to our earlier podcasts, as Nickel's internet connection is a bit spotty. In the "bullshit" segment, the fellows discuss bowel movements, bidets, future guest appearances, the Floppy Awards, and general on-goings since the last recording. "Comic News" is packed with comic news, but nothing all that newsworthy. A lot more time Tune in to see if Nickel can keep his winning streak of 1 going this week, as VF ambushes him with a quick 3 question showdown. In "Rapid-Fire Review" we look at a smattering of books released between November 16 & December 7, 2016. After we look ahead at a few of the books coming out December 14, 2016 we say farewell to the back of our sweet sweet outro. Stay classy.

095 - The Death of Graphic Novice - Part 6 of 10: Conspiracy & The Super Moon
Conspiracies are afoot following Donald Trump's election victory. The super moon, is in the sky, VF has joined the "Trump Youth" and censored our previous episode to ensure his place in the new President's graces. Nickel & VF start things out with an argument about the merit and existence of Episode 94.1, the Graphic Novice Post Election Podcast Spectacular. VF blames it on the super moon, Nickel blames it on Trump. Neil Cetrangolo of the Dark Angels & Pretty Freaks Podcast goes mysteriously missing during the clandestine recording of episode 94.1 as well, also possibly linked to the super moon... after Nickel lets VF drop the subject of 94.1, we spend some time talking about our favorite conspiracy theories. The General Banter or "Bullshit" segment closes with a discussion of the Doctor Strange movie and a Nickel rant about Nintendo. Comic News is essentially swept aside for the "Marvel Trivia Box" segment, where Nickel tries to end a 10 game losing streak. In "Rapid-Fire Review" the fellows discuss books released on November 2 & November 9, 2016 including Batman 10, Dark Knight III Book 6 of 10, Avengers 1, Champions 2, Occupy Avengers 1, Captain America Steve Rogers 7, Clone Conspiracy 2 of 5, & Invincible Ironman 1. We sneak in some serious talk about Jeff Lemire & Gordon Downie's "Secret Path" project, and the Residential School history in Canada. Thanks a bunch for listening. #BringBackEpisode94Point1

094 - The Death of Graphic Novice - Part 5 of 10
The Swan Song continues as we reach the half way point of our grand finale. VF & Nickel spend a awful lot of time talking about nothing (including fellow podcaster Jason Brigger's castration, some wedding planning updates and VF's cathouse). After an hour of literally talking about nothing, comic news is extremely x-men heavy, with Death of X discussion, a look towards future releases, X-Men vs. Inhumans, & ResurrXion. The guys discuss their hopes and dreams for the X-men franchise, and the million x-books being slowly announced as part of the ResurrXion event. As promised, we also touch on the triumphant return of the Great Lakes Avengers. After hours of unstructured discussion, the "Rapid-Fire Review" segment of the podcast covers new books from September 28, October 5, October 12, and October 19, 2016. A few of the books covered include Deadly Class 22, Captain America Steve Rogers 5, Captain America Sam Wilson #13, Lazarus #25, Jupiter's Legacy Volume 2 #4 of 5, Great Lakes Avengers #1, Mosaic #1, and Infamous Ironman #1. Thanks for continuing to let us into your ears a few times a month.

The Graphic Novice band is back together again... After 5 weeks off, VF & Nickel reunite to discuss stock advice, The Velvet Fog's trip to Japan, and some of the highlights and lowlights of the past month. Listener Feedback also makes a triumphant return, even though most of the questions seem to revolve around the History of Bad Ideas podcast. And... if you can make it through well over an hour of general bullsh*t, we do eventually discuss comics. A Graphic Novice explanation of Civil War II precedes the "Rapid Fire Review" segment, where we discuss 5 weeks of new comics, and the new books coming out on September 21, 2016. This episode is a little bit light on comics, but its heavy with love. Thanks for listening.

Episode 92 also features the return of our award winning "Listener Feedback" segment. VF shares his thoughts on the Suicide Squad in "Comic News".

In "Comic News" the guys discuss SDCC 2016 (not really), Nickel complains about stuff, and the lack of any substantial "Listener Feedback" is explained.

087 - Velvet Fog & The Spring of Fire
Another episode of the Graphic Novice Comic Book Podcast hits the airwaves with Nickel & The Velvet Fog. As a tribute to the Suicide Squad movie, internet issues forced us to go back and re-record several parts of this episode, delaying its release. In the initial "General Banter" segment, now renamed, "Bullshittin'" we discuss the Alberta fires, Doc Thirst's birthday, the Fantastic Four movie, Jeff Nau's appearance on the Latest "Book Club" episode, VF's recent and future travels, vintage Nintendo systems and games, and Danger Entertainment contract negotiations. "Comic News" is a little light this week, but we do play the bumper for all the Creed fans out there... Looking at you Bryan from Salty Language... "Marvel Trivia" is reduced to one question each... due to the extended "Bullshittin'" segment. Our second attempt at "Rapid-Fire Review" goes a little smoother once our internet issues are resolved. We discuss Batman, Detective Comics, Batgirl, Amazing Spider-Man, Moon Knight, Punisher, The Vision, Uncanny X-Men, Nailbiter, Lazarus, Low, Manifest Destiny, Rai, and 4001 A.D. We sneak in some discussion of the Spider-Porsche, and the History of Bad Ideas podcast before calling it quits this week. Thanks for listening.

086 - Dixieland Delight
The Graphic Novice Comic Book podcast returns to the sweet sweet sounds of Alabama's "Dixieland Delight". After discussing some southern terminology, the guys move on to the aptly named, "Bullshit" segment, where they review the highlights and lowlights from the past couple weeks. VF is a man on the town, Nickel is man on the ground. "Comic News" is a little light this week, as the guys boycotted doing any sort of "research" what so ever. They discuss the rejuvenation of Steve Rogers, VF's adventures with the DCU, and Nickel complains about stuff. Nickel continues to complain about some stuff throughout "Rapid Fire Review", where they review Batman & Robin Eternal #26, Black Science #21, Captain America: Sam Wilson #7, Detective Comics #51, Black Panther #1, Uncanny X-Men #6, and Moon Knight #1. The guys forget to review the books coming out this week, and limp out of town with a snappy outro discussing the pros and cons of retiring after episode 100.

Episode 84 of the Graphic Novice Comic Book Podcast kicks off with a riveting debate on hot vs. cold.

The State tells how about 1/3 of the land that hosts the infamous Murder Cabin is scheduled to be annexed by the County for flood mitigation. Don't miss out on this heart-wrenching tale of woe during the first hour of the podcast. In "Comic News" we set up DC's "Rebirth" event, discuss the Deadpool movie and get to know VF a little better in the "Getting to know VF a Little Better" sub-segment.
