Episode 210 - SDCC Recap Madness with Felicia Day, Olivia Munn, Joss Whedon and Eliza Dushku Jimmy's back from his epic journey to San Diego Comic-Con. Joe stayed back home with the kids. Over 5 hours of recording to release and we do it all here! No, no. But, we do play interviews with Felicia Day (Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog, The Guild) and Olivia Munn (G4TV's Attack of the Show). We also get the tail end of a roundtable discussion with Joss Whedon and Eliza Dushku for Dollhouse. We do some quick news headlines from the con including Doctor Who being recognized by Guinness Book of World Records, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies graphic novel, Avengers film line up, Justice League comic line up, Marvel gets rights to Marvelman, John Cassaday to direct Dollhouse episode, Eisner highlights and more! Jimmy gives his epic recap of the show babbling on and on about interviews and drinking or both. Of course, tons of name dropping. Joe curses Jimmy for all of the editing he will have to do now, but is glad he got some good coverage.

Carrie Preston ("Arlene Fowler" on HBO's True Blood) returns to chat up the current season, her new on DVD indie film Lovely By Surprise and other projects. Carrie also read our weekly review and gives a non-comic book reader opinion on it. (p.s. She dug it!) Jimmy attended Molly Crabapple's book release party for her new graphic novel, Scarlett Takes Manhattan, and chats with her for a few minutes at the party. (Apologies for the sound. It was LOUD there.) News includes The Siegel/Superman court battle, San Diego Comic-Con programming (the good and bad), Ryan Reynolds goes green, new Jonah Hex graphic novel, Lobo takes Anthrax, and we play with a Dollhouse. Joe laments over his missing SDCC again, but Jimmy goes on and on about his excitement for it! He'll be out there next week and they'll record the show in their annual bi-coastal Pre-SDCC chat.
