Reviews: Comic Book Comics #1, Screamland #1, Serenity: Better Days #1

It's our St. Paddy's Day Drunken special! Except we're not drunk and it's not special. Jimmy saw the new Vampire Cowboys Theatre production of Fight Girl Battle World last week and loved it! He interviewed stars Melissa Paladino, Maureen Sebastian, and Paco Tolson. They discuss the show, creative cursing and their own ventures into nerd-dom. And...Vampire Cowboys generously offers us 2 tickets to the show this weekend! You have to listen to hear the question and email us your answer in by this Thursday, March 20th at 12 p.m. We'll then get you in touch with the Vampire Cowboy folks to set up what night you can attend this weekend.

News includes a Superman search, Wizard World L.A., Paley Fest report, Buck Rogers, Harry Potter, and an animated Britney Spears. We also pimp out the upcoming New York Comic-Con and the events we will have going on including signings, interviews, the charity raffle and Project Haircut. Yep. Jimmy is cutting his hair live at the show! The hair will be donated to Locks of Love and we'll be collecting donations. You can send donations via PayPal. Enter Jimmy's email address: jimmyaquinox69@gmail.com and send millions! Half of the funds raised will go to Locks of Love and the other half will help cover costs here at CNI.
