Hey! Hey! Hey!  It's The Grindhouse, folks!  We have our infamous double feature shows (The Comic Shoppe and Afronerd Radio) airing back to back this Saturday starting at 6pm eastern. First up, there's The Comic Shoppe, featuring your hosts, Dburt, Capt. Kirk and Daryll B. who will be discussing the following pop/pulp concerns:  is Marvel really cancelling The Fantastic Four comic (and by extension not allowing FF character usage in other books) as a protest against the upcoming Fox movie? ;  and speaking of Fox, is 2015's Hieroglyph the next Sleepy Hollow?  And can a show about ancient Egypt succeed without casting actual Egyptians?; can DC's reimagined world's third smartest man (aka Mr. Terrific) remain intelligent without falling into a tattooed thuggish trope? And lastly, time constraints not withstanding, we will address some of the issues left on the cutting room floor from last week's show (e.g.  David Goyer vs She-Hulk, TV expansion on to alternate formats and Youtube's Street Fight series).  Call in live at 646-915-9620.

And not unlike a Marvel movie, think of Afronerd Radio as the after credits scene-airing promptly at 7pm.  Join Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they tackle the following topics: two icons have left the building, poetess/author, Maya Angelou and The Bronze Buckaroo, Herb Jeffries; the LA Clippers may get a new owner for 2B (if crime doesn't pay, what about racism?) ; even Geordi Laforge could "see" Levar Burton's three million dollar takedown, thanks to Kickstarter and our take on the Santa Barbara shooting tragedy.  Imperius rex, folks!
