Bill, Bryan and Steve are on hand this week for an extra-sized episode as they get ready for this year's New York Comic Con! First up, the CBB boys are thrilled to bring to the show Thomas A. Crowell, Esq.! Thomas is a partner with the law firm of Lane Sash & Larrabee where he counsels clients on a wide range of entertainment law and intellectual property rights issues. He is also the author of The Pocket Lawyer for Comic Book Creators, the very first dedicated legal guide for the comic book industry. The Pocket Lawyer is designed to help emerging artists and veteran professionals in the comic book industry build a solid foundation of business and communication practices and Thomas takes us through key legal issues involving protection of comic book properties. We also hear about the panels and seminars he is presenting at New York Comic Con 2016.

DISCLAIMER: Mr. Crowell’s comments should not be considered "legal advice," nor do they create an attorney-client relationship with the podcast listener.

Then we transition over to another guest joining us, our old friend Chris Cummins! CBB's own Bill and Chris will be co-hosting the Tales from the Toybox event for New York Comic Con's NYCC Presents! This multimedia evening will find Bill and Chris presenting a program about toys from the 60's to the present day which will feature many special guests and some amazing prizes and giveaways! And if that isn't enough, our own Bryan will be hosting  another NYCC Presents event, Flame On! Presents - Fan Feud, which will be a fun filled game show evening! All this and some talk of a Doctor Who event (involving some familiar names) and a comic book specific Woofs of the Week segment to round the show out!

CBB Flashback - Comic Book Bears Podcast Issue 80 - Legends of Tomorrow, Opinions of Today (Originally Released January 25, 2016)

Hard to believe that DC's Legends of Tomorrow is less than a year old and about to enter its second season.  Jump on the Waverider with us as we go back to January when we discussed the first episode.

Brother Justin missed our rendezvous with Rip Hunter's Waverider so in this episode Matt, Steve, Bryan and Bill are on the mic to discuss DC's Legends of Tomorrow, the new super-team show spinning out of The Flash and Arrow which premiered on The CW last week. You'll get to hear what they thought of the episode, their picks for comics featuring these characters and, being the hairy heavy homos they are, other opinions about this exceptionally woofy cast. All this plus their Woofs of the Week and hella more!

 

Intro - "Reflections of You" by Bear in Heaven

 

Outro - "Around the World in 80 Days" by Bing Crosby

THE UKPNW@40 PODCAST EPISODE 1 - 9/4/76, THE SEX PISTOLS

Bill Z of the Comic Book Bears Podcast has launched a new podcast - THE UKPNW@40 PODCAST!

UKPNW stands for United Kingdom Punk and New Wave and the intention of this podcast is to serve as a look and listen back at the amazing music that came out of England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland during the period from 1976 to 1979. What Bill will be doing with this podcast, as close as practicality allows, is to celebrate UK punk and new wave record releases, radio and TV appearances, key concerts and other events on their respective 40th anniversaries. Bill fills us in on some of his background and what to expect in the coming months on the podcast.  This first episode examines The Sex Pistols and their debut TV appearance on September 4, 1976.

If you are digging what you hear, like the podcast facebook page, tell friends who you think may also be into a podcast like this and reach out to Bill at ukpnwat40@gmail.com.
