It's been a while again since the last episode but now Scotch & Comics is officially back from vacation! Your intrepid host was gone from the "studio" ("apartment") for the entire month of June; it was very fun and also EXTREMELY busy, and there was only one opportunity to record a podcast. And it was while onboard the Marine Atlantic Ferry from Newfoundland to Nova Scotia! And even MORE exciting, the lovely and talented Kim Stolz (who you may also recognize from The Listmakers Podcast) was on the boat as well! Devin drinks scotch, Kim drinks Coca Cola, and of course, there are also comic books! Lots of comics in a short space, as the two friends dole out their thoughts on Locke & Key, Hopeless Savages, Lot 13, Concrete, and The Human Bomb (the Nu52 version). You know what they say: if this boat is a rockin', it must be another episode of Scotch & Comics!

REFERENCES! It's a punny title for a not-very-punny episode as your host Devin R Bruce channels the spirit of one of his Podcast Saints and dives headlong into his Regina pile...and also into madness! Will your intrepid host manage to survive the onslaught of his towering pile of unread comics? With the help of his spirit guide, Just Bill, how can he fail? From Chew to Fantastic Four to Über to Constantine to yes, even The Amazing Spider-Man, not even nine months of unread comics can stop the Scotch & Comics show!

Pretend it hasn't been nearly three months. Pretend that your intrepid host Devin R Bruce has always been here, talking to you about the glory that is the comic book and the wonder that is the single malt Scotch whisky. And then pretend this is not entirely unexpected! Because boy howdy, was this a fun one to record. Put your feet up while he fix you a (virtual) drink. and then rants at you about Batman And The Monster Men by Matt Wagner, Revival by Tim Seely & Mike Norton, Thunderbolts Classic from Marvel, The Invisibles from Vertigo, and Pirate Eye: Mark of The Black Widow from Action Lab Comics! Acceptable superhero far, small town horror-noir, adventures in metafiction, and a pirate-gangster mashup you won't soon forget. Is it a vision brought on by finishing off Grant Morrison's breakfast smoothie? No, it's just another episode of Scotch & Comics!

What's this? Two episodes of Scotch & Comics in one month? Has the world turned upside down? No, it's just a special treat for your birthday. In this sixteenth episode of Scotch & Comics, your intrepid host Devin R Bruce braves the sub-zero temperatures of his patio to enjoy Richard Stark's Parker: The Score by Darwyn Cooke, in an effort to raise the profile of the upcoming Graphic Content screening. Fueled by a choice cigar and a flask of Ballantine's Finest, he attempts to use the feeble English language to describe the transcendant nature of this work of comics art. Scotch & Comics: an episode that's worth at least five hundred words.

In this fifteenth episode of Scotch & Comics, your friendly host Devin R Bruce was initially found a little lacking for inspiration. But when he's running low on inspiration, he does what so many other people do: he turned to the internet! Armed with a couple of suggestions from his Twitter companions, he sallies forth to discuss Wolfman & Perez's New Teen Titans, Edison Rex from Monkeybrain Comics, and Punisher MAX's Kitchen Irish. Plus, he plugs the upcoming screening of Point Blank as part of the Metro Cinema's Graphic Content series. (February 19! Scotch served in the theater! You should come!) In the midst of all this, he talks a little about what might be a good gateway whisky for a non-Scotch fan, as well as what Scotch would go best with Sailor Moon. Scotch & Comics: you don't always know where you're going, but you're glad you took the trip!

It's a COLD January in Edmonton but this episode of Scotch & Comics is going to warm. You. UP. We're drinking the world's second-greatest hot alcoholic drink and we're talking - what else? - comics! Join host Devin R Bruce as he reads Northlanders, Excalibur, Avengers Arena, and Killraven, and then lets you know ALL about the 999 Regina Challenge, how close he came to finishing, and whether or not he made it past the finish line. Hot toddys and cool comics: just another day's work on Scotch & Comics!
