In this episode the guys share their thoughts on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, tackling some deep philosophical questions.  What’s the best kind of lightsaber fight?  Are wookies mammals?  Does JJ Abrams know how space works?  Where are all the A-Wings?

After that, George, Nathan, and Peter talk about the Martian, and the many rescues and non-rescues of Matt Damon.  Super-hero / noir series Jessica Jones gets a lot of love, and George gets up on his soapbox, which it turns out is full of comic books.

Meanwhile, Peter’s been playing The Witness, and reading Lev Grossman’s Magician series, which Nathan agrees is pretty great.

George invents a new segment of drive-by-pop-culture-ry, and some good times are spent with The Library at Mount Char, Grimes, and assorted boardgames.  Nathan fiends for the Black Blood of the Earth, and George shares his (terrifying) historical reading list, featuring Colt 6000 and Command & Control.

George Chimples

George Chimples comes from the far future, where comics are outlawed and only outlaws read comics. In an effort to prevent that horrible dystopia from ever coming into being, he has bravely traveled to the past in an attempt to change the future by ensuring that comics are good. Please do not talk to him about grandfather paradoxes. He likes his comics to be witty, trashy fun with slightly less pulp than a freshly squeezed glass of OJ. George’s favorite comic writers are Warren Ellis and Grant Morrison, while his preferred artists are Guy Davis and Chris Bachalo, He loves superheroes, but also enjoys horror, science fiction, and war comics. You can follow him @TheChimples on Twitter for his ramblings regarding comics, Cleveland sports, and nonsense.
