GAR! 160: Comics, Don Rickles, and the Man with the X-Ray Eyes


Download the MP3 here!

This week’s episode of The GAR! Podcast is the first of five recorded live at the 2017 Camden Comic Con. During prep time at the Con, Glenn and Ray discuss recent Marvel Comics like X-Men, Captain America, Thor, and the Inhumans; talk diversity in comics; and remember legendary comedian Don Rickles.

The GAR! Podcast is the Glenn Walker and Ray Cornwall weekly podcast where they talk unrehearsed about whatever happens to come to mind. It’s an audio-zine for your mind, a nerd exploration of a nerd world, coming to you from the suburbs of New jersey and the sunny lakes of Florida via Skype.
