Whew, this is a big one. What starts as an “angry show” turns into audio gold. First, naught but ball-bustin’ and butt-kickin’ for all. A rant about movers somehow becomes a talk about Batman: Arkham City, Arkham Asylum, and the creepiest video games. Then, Scott reviews Puss in Boots, but not before Dan gives him grief in a piratical manner. Then, a simple Fun With Race with Kielen turns into a fantastic conversation about race in superhero movies and comics. All that, and just how you will spend your Halloween weekend. A truly fun show with special guest Jamie “Master Dingo” Kirk. Thanks for listening!
Greetings Programs! Another Fun With Race Supplemental as Kielen King and David Walker sit down and power through a commentary of Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail. Can they survive 90 minutes of a man in a fat drag costume? Will David Walker hold back on his very first viewing? Only one way to find out…

What an issue. First, Aaron goes off the rail about how he (and everyone else) should pronounce La Brujeria, but not before telling tales of childhood whooping. Next, Scott brings a Dally Demands with Strange Brew; and then has a great conversation with James Sinclair about the creation process of La Brujeria. (That’s two references). Finally, Fun With Race gets a little serious as Kenny B asks Kielen if white comedians can use the N-word when talking about racial issues… But not before going off on the NBA strike. Don’t forget, La Brujeria issue 2 and Sabertooth Vampire Vol. 2 at Bridge City Comics on 10/21 from 6pm to 9pm. Finally, vote for us in Culture / Arts at www.podcastawards.com. Thanks for listening and your support.

It’s a double-double issue of Geek in the City Radio. First, 2 conversations about sports. 2 Bets resolved. Promoting 2 local books with the 2nd issue of La Brujeria & Sabertooth Vampire Vol. 2 (Friday, 10/21 at Bridge City Comics). 2 epic video games coming. 2 Fun With Race Questions. Talking about the 2nd Annual Swashbucklers Ball. Part 1 of a 2 part Dally Demands. Seriously, there is some freaky Harvey Dent stuff going on. Know what can’t be #2? Geek in the City Radio, so go vote for us at the Podcast Awards (and give some love to Funemployment Radio and Legion of News).

… Sophomore Superior!
‘Sabertooth Vampire’ & ‘La Brujeria’ unleash second issues at Bridge City Comics signing party Oct. 21
DATE/TIME: Friday, Oct. 21 from 6 to 9 p.m.
LOCATION: Bridge City Comics (3725 N. Mississippi Ave., Portland, OR)
On Friday, Oct. 21 from 6 to 9 p.m., MIKE RUSSELL (“Sabertooth Vampire”) joins forces with AARON DURAN and JAMES SINCLAIR (“La Brujeria”) for a blowout Issue 2 release party at Bridge City Comics.
The creators are teaming up to roll out the second issues of their comics — “The Sabertooth Vampire” and “La Brujeria.”
Writer Aaron Duran ( http://geekinthecity.com ) and artist James Sinclair (a colorist on “Hellboy” and “The Flash”), joined by editor/letterer Jennifer Alvin, will sign Issue #2 of “La Brujeria” — their supernatural comedy about Althalia, a “gifted” temp who gets a job at a pawn shop that’s actually a front for a team dedicated to Fairy Tale Domestication. In the new issue, Golden Bought Pawn takes a job under Portland’s streets as mystical powers rise to shake the city to its foundations. See why Mark L. Miller of Ain’t It Cool News said “LA BRUJERIA is definitely something I want to read more of.”
Meanwhile, Mike Russell signs “Sabertooth Vampire Unleashed,” which collects Season Two of Russell’s webcomic ( http://www.sabertoothvampire.com ) about a tiny vampire hampered by his oversized fangs. Will he pull his teeth out of the ground long enough to actually bite someone? Probably not. Over 56 pages, Season Two frequently contradicts itself as Russell dives into the Saber-Vamp’s personal life — his awkward teenage years, his stints as King Arthur and a caveman, his solo dance parties, and his awkward trip around the world after someone mistakes him for a garden gnome. Lauren Davis of io9.com called the comic “an amazing bit of silliness…. Yes, it’s a one-note joke, but damn if Russell doesn’t milk it for all it’s worth.”
