Episode 17: The Mighty Tangent!

Episode 17 - The One With All The Tangents

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls (go away, you innocent children shouldn't be hearing this kind of language!), welcome to Episode 17 of Comic Racks; the episode where no-one can stay on topic!

That's right, it's Tangent City this episode as Stacey gets hyper on who knows what and Iz, still recovering from concussion, has to deal with that level of craziness.

The girls cover highly important topics this fortnight, from the origins of The Cheeky Girls, to Stacey's Mr's giant birthday list, to whether Daniel Craig is a pouty woman or not, plus lots more in between.

But fear not, my comic loving friends, for the girls do get their comic on and bust out a load of reviews, from Kick Ass to Fables, Dock Walloper to Maus, plus a couple of non-comic goodies along the way. This is mostly because they couldn't think of a proper topic, but hey, it's all good. During these spoiler-rific reviews Iz proclaims that everything ever is "fucking awesome", Stace brings everyone down and The Racks enjoys it's first ever joint Top of the Racks. That's right, folks, there's a comic out there so awesome that it gets the full Comic Racks endorsement! (Go buy it!)

The regular Rack Music segment sees The Rack Ladies accidentally develop a theme of video game related tunes, though Stace has yet to find out Iz's verdict on her pick this fortnight.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy a podcast full of random singing, laughs and reviews a-plenty!

Episode 18: Secret Quotation

After the weeks of waiting, we finally reveal the mystery behind Secret Quotation. Keep an ear out in this episode for the Comic Racks portion of our UK Comics Podcast Group-wide competition! To be in with a chance of winning awesome prizes such as Noble Causes V1 & 2, an assortment of Virgin trades, a Wisdom trade and other splendid stuff to be announced, all you have to do is find the comic movie quote embedded within this episode, identify the film, then find the quotes from the same film in the other UK podcasts; Geek Syndicate (Episode 90), Quiet! Panelolgists At Work (Episode 45), Comic Book Outsiders (to be announced) and Birds Of Geek (to be announced). You have until the end of August to send your email containing your name, the title of the film, and all five secret quotations to secretquotation@gmail.com. Good luck!

Anyhoo, on with the show! In this accidentally long episode, the girls tackle the topic of comic book movies, announcing some of their favourites, some of their, ahem, not-so-favourites, some they haven't seen yet but would like to see, and some upcoming movies that have them squirming in their seats with anticipation!

On top of this comes all the regular bumph; Stace discusses her Things To Do Before She's 30 achievements, Iz warms to Guitar Hero 3 now she isn't getting booed off stage and both girls get excited at all the Rack-related news! Well, wouldn't you get excited at the prospect of interviewing Paul Cornell, having Jamie Smart on the show and being in a comic?? Thought so

During the reviews, the Ladies of the Racks unite in their enjoyment of The Uniques #1 and 2, continue their squabbling over whether the art in Wolverine Origins really is any good, Stace dispairs at her lack of memory during the reading of Final Crisis #2, and Iz travels down Memory Lane by picking up the Dandy!

All this and The Donnas and Weezer sound too good to be true? Well, it is true, so get to the listening!
