Fireside Chats - Comic Book Podcast
Summary: Comic Book focused news and reviews brought to you twice each week. Join us as we analyze the newest comic current events and debate the weekly hot topics that every comicbook geek wonders about. Welcome to our multiverse. Welcome to Fireside.
Stop me if you heard this one. A man falls into a vat of chemicals…. Well Firesiders, that’s at least the start of one of the jokers on our list today. In this issue Mr. Maurer, P. Features, and Baby Huey talk about the “Man Who Laughs”, the Joker. With Joaquin’s behind the scene videos and photos consuming the internet right now. The guys thought it would be a good time to talk joker. They go through (in their opinion) the major portrayals of joker on the big and small screen. So whether you are a classic fan longing for the return of Cesar’s Joker, an animated fan waiting to hear Hamill’s trademark laugh, still curious about Heath’s scars, dancing with Jack, a member of Jared’s skwad, or clowning around with Joaquin, this is the show for you. Welcome to Fireside.

Ok Firesiders, I have to be honest with you... I have no idea what to say about this issue. Maurer still isn’t back and Mendte and Features are welcomed once again by Felix Hergood at Emergent Gamer studios. Reggie aka OBG is still hanging out, and the show starts normal enough... That changes quickly though. They try and talk about Reggie’s comic book history and Felix’s Punisher collection but there was a bit of derailing. We also lose track of time so enjoy and extra long chat. All I can say is enjoy. Welcome to Fireside.
