It’s time again for the Two Guys with PhDs to head back to Lone Star Comics in Plano, TX, for their monthly on-location show. However, this month it is not Lone Star Comics they are visiting, but Collected Comics. That’s right, Collected bought out the Plano store, so although the Two Guys are at the same physical location, they are now doing their show from a different store. This time around, Derek is joined by one of the co-owners of Collected, Brent Erwin, along with Rick Cromack (the store’s manager), and Comics Alternative mainstay, Shea Hennum (Andy couldn’t be on this episode). This is the second of the two science fiction shows that they had planned: one to open the summer (the June on-location show) and another to wrap it up. On this episode, everyone begins by discussing some of their favorite sci-fi comics, along with some of the favorites that the listeners contributed. They also find time to talk about the various science fiction blockbuster films of the summer, various sci-fi televisions programs, and toys based on sci-fi comics. Everyone goes through an array of diverse science fiction titles, and Brent and Rick especially bring in some of classics from the 1960s and 1970s. So come get your science on with this month’s on-location show at Collected!
