SMCcast Chase Variant PodcastComing at you with episode #4 of the Chase Variant Podcast. In this episode we decided to mix things up a bit and get a little grittier with some of our discussions. We discuss Carnage U.S.A. and Namor: The First Mutant and how we feel they relate to the quality of comics being published. We give a new character based game a try. Then we move on to two of the most currently talked about comic based shows The Walking Dead and Comic Book Men.

    Great podcast guys! Great review on the Walking Dead episode, but I’m going to have to disagree with you both 110% on Comic Book Men. It wasn’t that bad, and you guys make it out to be waaaay worse than it was, lol.

    Guys, awesome episode, enjoyed the hell out of it.

    have to disagree with you in regards to the statement one of you made about asking the mother to shoot her own daughter. zombie or not…thats just not cool…she basically just finds out her daughter is dead and asking her if she wants to put a bullet in her head is just adding fuel to the fire.

    As far as comic book men, for a first episode it wasnt great, but it wasnt as bad as you guys made it out to be. Second episode is much better. What you said as far as the people coming in to sell stuff are not just walking off the street, you are right. they openly asked people to contact the production company and setup times when to comin to bring their stuff in. i think most of pawn type shows do that, because you want to make sure the camera crew is there to catch the good stuff, instead of hanging around the store all day long hoping something happens. i think the problem was with the people they picked to comin was the problem…the chucky doll thing was just stupid. They did say there will be some who are just off the street walkins. As far as “the bearded guy”, Bryan Johnson, he doesnt work at the store, he is their long time friend who hangs out at the store, think they even say so during the episode, so they put him on the show because of their friendship and how the four of them interact with one another.

    looking forward to episode 5.

    Wow. When the cat’s away (me) the mice (you) have a pah-tay!

    I liked this episode a good deal actually (I like the episodes I’m not on, maybe I should take a hint :P)! but it wasn’t the theme of “crap” that made it good for me, it was the spontaneity and the looseness. It made it funnier and more entertaining. You sounded “alive”. Sometimes when I’m driving the show I could swear everyone’s falling asleep and I don’t know how to wake them up!

    The “crap” thing got depressing after a while though and it turned a little bit into a venting session and I felt you kept beating the horse after it died a little.

    Oh, and Niko’s good on the intro. :)

    Great work guys!

    I am personally glad you guys liked it. I listened to it and it did turn out to be a vent fest in some parts. thanks.

    The mother shooting her daughter, that was me. I guess I was trying to put out the theme “you take care of your own.” like in Pet Sementary, “you bury your own.”

    I stand firm on my argument with comicbook men though.

    Thanks again.
