165 Book Club Announcement = Andre the Giant: Life and Legend
Wow. Here we go. We’ve been pretty excited about getting to this and here we are! Andre the Giant: Life and Legend by Box Brown! 
"Andre Roussimoff is known as both the lovable giant in The Princess Bride and a heroic pro-wrestling figure. He was a normal guy who’d been dealt an extraordinary hand in life. At his peak, he weighed 500 pounds and stood nearly seven and a half feet tall. But the huge stature that made his fame also signed his death warrant.
Box Brown brings his great talents as a cartoonist and biographer to this phenomenal new graphic novel. Drawing from historical records about Andre’s life as well as a wealth of anecdotes from his colleagues in the wrestling world, including Hulk Hogan, and his film co-stars (Billy Crystal, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, etc), Brown has created in Andre the Giant, the first substantive biography of one of the twentieth century’s most recognizable figures.”
What a great concept, the life of Andre the Giant in graphic novel form. You KNOW Dale is up on this, back before he stopped following wrestling and now he needs Slim walking up in front of him while he leans on Slim’s wrestling prowess. Much like Andre did in his later matches [Spoilers]. You KNOW Slim is up in this. Probably slept with it under his pillow last night dreaming of convincing everyone on the quiet car to read the book when he was done. Some trainshare setup. Sharing the book, etc etc. Jonesy is on VACATION this week so he’s probably eight fingers into the Tullamore Dew so if he is present and is only slurring a tiny bit it would be a miracle. Plus he does love Princess Bride if nothing else. I think. I think I remember an exchange about that somewhere. 
Who knows.
What I do know is this is going down TONIGHT, guys. TONIGHT WEDNESDAY NIGHT. Jonesy is leaving in the morning for the second half of his vacation so he’ll probably be pulling over somewhere and throwing up like Dale did that time after Pk meetup lolol Barcade fun is all it is. We have fun. Check for links tonight, guys. Facebook. Twitter. All in good fun.

You hear about this Ales Kot character? Guy is the next big thing. Let’s take a spy genre on its head, he says to us. Zero is unlike any spy book you’ll ever read. Maybe even the best.

164 Announcement = Zero: An Emergency
Ready for another sweet Pk to get your weekend right? This week the three gentlemanly hosts are going to talk up Zero Volume 1: An Emergency by Ales Kot and a whole slew of artistic talent.
“Edward Zero was the best spy the Agency had—and then he realized he was working for the wrong side.”
That’s it. That is literally the only description I could find on any website. Do NOT worry, though. Leave it to the boys at Pk to fill out the rest of that description with a great book club segment. 
I mean, IF we get that far into the show, that is. There is so much more to an episode of Paperkeg and frankly we cannot stop talking about Jonesy’s mortal fear of any surface within the boundaries of a major metropolitan area that we may never get off the subject. Twitter is abuzz with it this very minute. And ol’ Jonesy doing that one face he does that was memorialized in a screenshot of him being trolled. You know the one. I hope. Slim hasn’t tweeted about Longmire in like 8 hours or circled the wagons protecting Longmire with the rest of twitter so we’re not even sure if he is okay with recording. We’ll see won’t we? Dale has a multitude of issues to deal with including possible making the official switch over to green tea from coffee and also being without his classy hat that he left in Jonesy’s truck from the night of Cold Concretekeg™. He is without. Doesn’t know what to do. Crying like some fool standing in the front row of Michael Jackson concert.
TONIGHT. We are recording tonight! Probably, even though Dale never officially sent out the calendar invite and we do text each other for most of the day but rarely about show stuff because we SAVE it for the show you dig? TONIGHT. Check twitter. Check Facebook. Live feeds, friends.

163 ANNOUNCEMENT = Identity Crisis
Feels like it’s been forever, hasn’t it? DC Comics taking over our book club. It’s been since 151 and Death of the Family, if you don’t count Superman vs Aliens and let’s be honest who does??
Let’s get down to business. Oh, this book is all business. Boy do women not come out favorably!
New York Times best-selling novelist Brad Meltzer (THE ZERO GAME; THE MILLIONAIRES) unleashes a murder mystery featuring some of the biggest pop icons in the world: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League. When the spouse of a JLA member is brutally murdered, the entire superhero community searches for the killer, fearing their own loved ones may be the next targets. Before the mystery is solved, a number of long-buried secrets will threaten to divide the heroes before they can bring the mysterious killer to justice. IDENTITY CRISIS is an all-too-human look into the lives of superheroes, and the terrible price they pay for doing good.
This thing reads like a novel, tell you what. A realistic crime novel. If only it read like a Walt Longmire novel. You feel?
Dale we think was on his fourth vacation this year during this past week. No idea if he even had time to read, or even give a crap about life outside of his little time away from work. Jury is still out on if that guy has a job, or is his job just getting every day off from work? Lotto winner maybe? Does New Jersey even have a lotto? Place is hot garbage. Texted him this past week and got no reply. Probably revenge for that comment about iOS 8 having Do Not Disturb as a setting. Guy takes these comments to heart, you see. Always throwing it in my face, calling me a bad person subliminally. What of Jonesy? Guy also is off on some weekend getaway. All we can gather from Vine’s and UnTappd posts are that he is with his family drinking alcohol at all hours of the day. He also possibly wrote some erotic Longmire fan fic. And Slim? Guy ran this morning so that is all that matters. Got away from life and comics and work and TV and phones. Just him and the Top 50 Dance Songs on iTunes Radio. All he needs. All anyone needs.
Recording will happen TONIGHT LIVE on YouTube. Keep an eye on our channel for the link or our hot as s Twitter account. Identity Crisis! Tonight!
