Ok...no dilly-dallying, join the crew of the SS Comic Shoppe this Sunday at 6pm as they discuss the following graphic novel/sci-fi/fantasy subjects: some enterprising teens are in the midst of constructing a Battlestar Galactica inspired Viper flight simulation ship with Kickstarter contributions; the legendary Texas indie film theater, Alamo Drafthouse makes its way to NYC; Ultimate Spiderman (Miles Morales) is set to meet the original (Earth 616) Spiderman in an upcoming crossover vehicle (and has a Quesada rule been broken with such a crossover?); Josh Whedon and crew film a "last minute" after credits scene for the eminent Avengers movie; Super Size Me's Morgan Spurlock has a new film entitled, Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope. And lastly, taking into account time factors, our thoughts on the upcoming Watchmen prequel (including a digital version of the comic's fictional newspaper, The New Frontiersman). Call in for the live broadcast at: 646-915-9620.

Next on the horizon is the Afronerd featuring Captain Kirk broadcast, airing at 7pm eastern standard time. The topics du jour for this live podcast are: financial juggernaut, Goldman Sachs gets tagged for investing in a sex trafficking website; taking a cue from the pop culture/comic book fansite, 4th Letter, the crew waxes on the hackneyed n-word rant monologue device seen in countless American gangster films; our thoughts on a rant of a different sort, coming from a man of color concerning stalled African-American leadership. Howard University students start a new campaign with the tagline, "Do I Look Suspicious? (and our answer is "yes") and lastly, after numerous documentaries and dramatic pieces pertaining to the tragic sinking of the super-ship, The Titanic, no one thought to highlight that there were folks of color as passengers on that fated voyage-we cover this fact for your edification.
