Never before in the history of comics (and likely never again) you can win the ENTIRE contacts of an iconic true-blue pop-culture phenomenon’s ART STUDIO with only one bid!

The KEVIN EASTMAN ART STUDIO auction will run for 10 days beginning on Dec 25th – Christmas Day – at 9:00 PM (PST). It will wrap the evening of January 4th at 9:00 PM, which will be the final night of the 35 DAYS OF KEVIN EASTMAN event at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood. It will be a HUGE blowout, and we’ll follow the final hours of the auction live at the closing night party!!

A portion of the proceeds from this auction will go to benefit THE HERO INITIATIVE, a non-profit organization that raises money to assist comic book creators in need.

We don’t have a link to the auction page yet (it won’t be available until it goes live) but here’s a link to the eBay account that will be hosting the auction: http://shop.ebay.com/merchant/oranj - – feel free to publicize this link if you wish.

The Rosa Rage is uncaged on this edition as we dive full bore into the Wonder Woman revamp by Straczynski and Kramer. Then comes RED LIGHT PROPERTIES, THE ABOMINABLE CHARLES CHRISTOPHER, CAPTAIN AMERICA #606, IRON MAN #27, BRIGHTEST DAY, DC LEGACIES, GHOSTOPOLIS, DEATH OF DRACULA and WEREWOLVES OF MONTEPELLIER.

In the last segment we discuss this year’s Eisner nominations, and can’t help but cap everything off by further debating the work of J. Michael Staczynski. No one was harmed in the making of this episode, and everybody still likes each other (I think).

 

Music: Chevelle – Get Some / Project 86 – Set Me Up / George Michael – Careless Whisper / Seether – Careless Whisper (cover)
Intro: Notorious B.I.G – Who Shot ya (remix), and Project 86 – The Butcher
