If I don't post a show on Robbie Burns Day then I feel like I'm probably doing something wrong. Also: hello! It's 2017 and I'm still occasionally rambling on about comic books while walking arm and arm with John Barleycorn. This episode John is rather silent but I talk about Astro City, The Anchor, Deathlok, and The Punisher MAX. It's a kind of a short episode but don't worry: the next one is going to be extra-long to make up for it. Just you wait.

I've tried to write the show notes for this episode five or six times now and it always just comes down to me trying to not talk about how it's been a while. So I figure the less said the better!

Long story short: if you want to hear your intrepid host Devin R Bruce talk about awesome independent comic books like Polly & The Pirates, Bitch Planet, The Hypernaturals, and Injection, then this is the episode for you! Also if you are interested in the fantastic comics in Showcase Presents Metamorpho and the unbelievable talent of Ramona Fradon, that's here too! Enjoy!

This episode of Scotch & Comics is trying something a little bit different. This episode isn't the result of a single evening's "hard work" but rather a handful of books spread out over a few days, then stitched back together. (It's fun to spend an entire evening sipping whisky and reading comic books, but sometimes it can be difficult to find five consecutive hours to set aside for that Herculean task.)

In this patchwork of an episode your intrepid host Devin R Bruce takes a tour of a wide variety of comic book stories, from Marvel and WildStorm's World War 3 crossover, Warren Ellis' rocketpunk adventure Ignition City, psychedelic espionage book Change, and Scott Morse's mind-expanding Strange Science Fantasy. Wrap yourself up in the warmth of this episode of Scotch & Comics. It's hypoallergenic and breathable, and made from 100% natural ingredients!

A little while ago I was talking with the ladies from the Boozy Boob Tube podcast, and I said that since I have a podcast where I drink and talk about comics and they have a podcast where they drink and talk about television, we should figure out some kind of awesome crossover. They agreed that it would be a good idea and a fun time, we just needed to come up with a show that I hadn't seen that was based on a comic book that they hadn't seen.

Then, iZombie happened. AND A PODCAST WAS BORN!

Gather around, podcast listeners, as I tell the tale of Episode 22 of the Scotch & Comics podcast, also known as...The Lost Episode! Abandoned shortly after it was recorded because of its strange aural qualities, it was thought that this episode would never see the light of day, but your intrepid host Devin R. Bruce was not going to let it go that easily. After searching the world for hints about the episode's location, he tracked it down in Marrakesh. After escaping an underground city of feral accountants and social workers, he dusted it off and has now sent it to you for safekeeping.

Thrill at the exploits of Bronze Age Superheroes in Adventure Comics #464! Gasp at the twists and turns of The Janus Directive! Shiver as your host revels in the finales of FF and Young Liars. Shudder at the strange audio happenings! All that and more in this very special episode of Scotch & Comics!

Today may be "his special day" but that doesn't mean that your intrepid host hasn't thought of you listeners! Yes, on this very special thirty-fifth birthday episode, host Devin R Bruce has crafted an audio grab bag that is bursting at the seams with comics goodness! Open up and find treats featuring comics from such luminary creators as (in alphabetical order): Brian Azzarello, Richard Corben, Garth Ennis, Jae Lee, Sean McKeever, Peter Milligan, Sean Phillips, Eric Powell, and John Severin. (And even more!) Though the journey may get a little dark at times, Scotch & Comics will shine a light at the end of that tunnel. BUT DON'T GO INTO THE LIGHT!!

It may have been six months since the last episode of Scotch & Comics but that doesn't mean that your host has gotten rusty. Or even gotten himself a Rusty Nail. (Ouch. I cut myself on that pun.) But in this special Robbie Burns Day episode, your host Devin R Bruce delivers an ode to comics. Specifically the comics Stormwatch, FF, Plastic Man, and Pretty Deadly. It's a guid a body!

(Note: there is some cursing in the musical interludes. If that is concerning to you.)

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!
