Episode 14 – “CAKE Chicago 2012 and the truth about lightsabers”
Release Date: 07/08/2012
In this show, Bombast Podcast visits the first ever CAKE show. CAKE is the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo, and there are plenty of artist interviews, and comicky goodness. We have interviews with: Nate Powell, JP Pollard, Spike from Templar AZ, Betsey Swardlick, Julia Wertz, Lisa Hanawalt, Domitille Collardey, and Walker Mettling of PCC Showcase with Providence Comics Consortium. After that there is a strange glimpse into the music business that must be heard to be believed. End of the show topics include Superman vs Aliens, Superman vomiting, Marvel vs Capcom, Megaman and the the band that Megaman inspired, The Protomen, Mummies vs Zombies, and the need for a full-on Frankenstein craze. And don't you want to answer the question we pose: "Who is the new character sensation of the year?" Is it Astro Duck, Skater Dude, or Strong Shark? And of course, because things were not ridiculous enough, we talk for a solid minute about how great lightsabers are.
