Holy hiatus, Spiderman! The podcast is back with three more episodes. Recorded pre-covid (hey, remember those times?) James and Giselle discuss the 1998 slasher-fest “Halloween: H20.” The two compare and contrast the 1998 return of Laurie Strode to the 2018 one, how chardonnay drinking axe wielding Laurie is… kind of amazing, and how adorably 90s this sequel is. Check it out!
Since it is October and therefore the perfect time to talk about all things witchy the hosts this week decided to talk about one of their favorite witchy flicks, “The Witches of Eastwick.” Yeah! James and Giselle go through this 1987 classic and discuss its themes of feminism, its allegory of the patriarchy, and how the Devil is pretty much a f*ckboy. Also, Veronica Cartwright forever. Check it out!
Guess what? The hosts are talking about “Halloween” 2018! Yeah!! This week James and Giselle discuss and gush over the long awaited sequel. They talk about the evolution of Laurie Strode, how the movie pays tribute to the previous ones, Human-o-lanterns, alligator moats, and banana pudding. We swear it’s all relevant. And we are pretty sure Michael Myers needs his own Pinterest page.
The Comic Bug brought their community of talented creators to Comikaze with a “pavilion” which consisted of long rows of tables at the artist alley featuring comic artists, writers and even the new geek dating app, Cuddli. We got to sit and hang out next to artists like Dave Crosland, Jim Mahfood, Richard Starkings, Rafael Navarro and many, many more.
To add to the fun, we created cards that let fans express what their feelings about geeks or fangirls are. We hoped to spark conversation and pride in being a geek girl, and people did not disappoint! Take a look at some of the empowering answers, artwork, and awesome cosplay we saw from the Comikaze con-goers.
We send off Valerie on her upcoming trip with tales from Reddit’s /NoSleep subreddit, but we also comfort her with the love of spiders from SPACE! Be warned, if you’re easily spooked, we do read off a couple of scary stories in this episode. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
