    Welcome to Episode 23, where Comic Racks will engage you with tales of squidgy fingers, job-miffs, and podcast-theivery...and then actually get on with the episode itself.

    This week we have real-people news (Comic Racks, Jamie Smart, and Almost Dr Karl Byrne)and some pretty spiffy reviews:

    Deadpool #1 and 2
    Big Hero 6 #1
    The Dead #1

    Our Top of the Racks are as outstanding as ever with a controversial Tail thrown in for good measure (via a big joint fume about Forbidden Planet)...

    Our main topic this episode is less of a blow-by-blow account of Brum Con 08, but rather more of a how-drunk-did-we-get-and-what-panels-did-we-miss? account smile.gif Join us as we ramble about our celebrity new best friends, the panels that we *did* manage to get to, and what we got up to with all our forum buddies smile.gif

    We round off with some cracking Rack Music (Clint Eastwood from Gorillaz and Cath... from Death Cab for Cutie), as well as a rather dubious Peeve...

    Tune in next fortnight for an Ask the Racks special and don't forget this is the last episode to be hosted on the Geek Syndicate feed - in the future find us solely at http://comicracks.libsyn.com/rss
