Near Mint Ep. 099 - Beginning of the End
Following a year of self-imopsed exile, our heroes emerge with bittersweet news. After 8+ orbits around the sun, the time has come for the starship Near Mint Comic Show to return to base.
Delays aside, this rust-free episode spells penultimate with a capital ULTIMATE! And despite big announcements and major real-life developments, we manage to get to some comic talk by the 10-minute mark. Top o' the Pile features a sampler plate of We Stand on Guard by Brian K. Vaughn, Amazing Spider-Man from Marvel, and DC's Super Sons. After that we dive in on how we've evolved as comic fans and as people since we last met.
Joining the party is Sean Gordan Murphy, as we discuss his outspoken views on the business of comics. We tackle the latest (well ok, not so latest by the time you're hearing this) Movies and TV shows, and we set it all up for our 100th and FINAL epsiode.
Keep those cards and letters coming. Episode 100 will be a celebration of all things Near Mint and all things comics from the time we've been doing this show. We want to hear from fellow fans, what you've enjoyed about the show and about comics over the last decade. Send us a message (or better yet a VOICE message) at firstname.lastname@example.org, facebook.com/neatmintcomicshow, or @nmcomicshow. We know you've been listening and we want to hear from you!
