David and Zack are taking this week off as our “Spring Break”, but we still wanted to give you something to listen to! In celebration of Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” hitting HBO Max, we are re-releasing our episode from a few weeks back where David and Ted covered the film!
Have you ever wanted to start reading comic books, but were too intimidated by the vastness of the comic world and didn’t know where to start? Well guess what, me too! This week my good friend and comic book aficionado Tristan Benns is here to help the Geek Garage kick off a brand new recurring series called “Comic Corner”, wherein we’ll take two (or more) characters and enlighten you all on the best issues/collections/one-offs to start with. And don’t worry about keeping track of Tristan’s recommendations, because you can visit our website to view them anytime!
Our guest Tristan has been reading comics since he was 5 years old, and frequently freelance writes for likes of Screen Rant, Comic Book Resources, and the Nerd Stash. He also co-hosts the “Nerds Talk Movies” podcast on the Nerd Stash Network.
One cool perk of being a Patreon donor to the podcast is that you get to pick out an episode topic for us to cover, and that’s what we’re doing this week! One of our long-time supporters requested that we discuss the 2012 animated short film “Strawinsky and the Mysterious House”. You can watch bits and pieces of it on YouTube, or you can pay $1 and watch it on Amazon Prime.
