We have sung the praises of Dash - the GREAT noir detective comic book set in 1940's Los Angeles centered around openly gay private eye Dash Malone from Northwest Press - a few times already on the show. Now we are thrilled to welcome to the show for the first time Dash writer Dave Ebersole! We kick off the show interviewing Dave and delve into the world of Dash, what might lie ahead for Phil, Zita, Cindy, Sal and the other characters, Dave's process and his work as a playwright and much, much more. We then head into our Baltimore Comic Con wrap-up with a healthy CBBears contingent in attendance this year. Afterwards the whole group joins in to talk current comics with our observations regarding Sex Criminals, The Manhattan Projects, The New Deal, Ninjak, Brandon Graham’s Island, Book of Death, Captain America: White, Toe Tag Riot, Sentinel, A Piggy’s Tale: The Adventures of a Three Legged Superpup, Justice League, Sandman: Overture and much more!

CBB Flashback - Comic Book Bears Podcast Issue #69 - Shirtlifting with Steve MacIsaac! (Originally released on September 10th, 2015)
We start the episode off with an in depth interview with writer/artist Steve MacIsaac! Steve has recently released the fifth issue of his Shirtlifter series and he discusses with us what Shirtlifter is all about, the creative process, his successful crowdfunding effort for the book, the complexities of promoting a gay oriented indie comic, what is up next for him and so much more!
Then the hosts are pleased to welcome back to the show producer Sam Kite from Bear City 3! But this time Sam gets to talk about the funnybooks with us. There's a whole lotta of Marvel and Secret Wars talk, a lotta DC talk, some Valiant talk, Archie #2, The Wicked and the Divine, Tula Lotay, Phonogram: The Material Girl, Astro City #26, Hawkeye, Secret Wars tie-ins recommendations ... that's just skimming the surface.
(Also, one of the hosts was still dealing with the effects of strep throat when we recorded so there are some coughs here and there that snuck in before the mute button was hit. We hope what we couldn't edit out isn't too distracting.)

On this episode of the Comic Book Bears podcast, the CBBears are thrilled to welcome to the show Joseph Carriker! Joe has been writing in the gaming industry for over fifteen years and is about to release his first prose novel - Sacred Band from Lethe Press. Sacred Band is a queer themed super-hero tale which depicts the rise of a loose-knit super powered team dedicated to helping those who fall between the cracks in a world where the golden age of heroes is decades past.
After that Steve, Bryan and Bill spend some time discussing the first episode of Legion, the new X-Men related TV series on FX! (Mini-spoiler - they all liked it! A lot!)
