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!

161 Announcement = Fear Agent Library Edition Volume 2
Oh hell, folks. It doesn’t get easier. Not this week. We continue on right where we left off last week. When we last left our Paperkeg crew, they were mid-gut punch….. and then they started reading the Volume Two lolol poor Dale had no idea….
“The outlook isn’t sunny for Heath Huston or his ensemble of Fear Agents—planet Earth is infested by Feeder aliens, robotic conquerors are manipulating the universe through time travel, and Heath discovers a traitor in their midst! This second volume of the deluxe Fear Agent Library Edition collects issues #17-#32 of the popular series, and also includes Tales of the Fear Agent bonus stories and a massive gallery of covers, sketches, and pin-ups!”
This is going down TONIGHT. There may be reported “happy hours” right before we record this so holy crap. Happy. Hour. Drunk. Talking about Fear Agent while drunk. Do the math, people. We are talking GOLD in the making. Our brother in arms Jonesy who loves beer just celebrated a birthday, so he’s headed out to drink it up pre-show and they’ll probably play that Beatles birthday song. I think the rule, that has been broken on numerous occasions anyway, only specifically states that he can’t drink DURING the show so he would find that loophole and exploit it. While breaking that rule anyway. Ess all over the rules. Slim has a “Manhappan Hour” they call it. Expensive to organize but g-damn if people don’t get super blitzed and still function enough to get home after yukking it up with the NYelite. Dale has a pretty big night planned, too. Has to drop off a USB mouse and keyboard to someone on his way home and probably lose touch with reality for 3 hours or so until he can wrestle his kids to bed and then he can talk about the end of Fear Agent lololol. 
TONIGHT. On youtube - look for that link on our twitter or Facebook. OR, listen to the show on Monday when that hits our precious podcast feeds that you know and love. 
Also, thanks Rick Remender, Tony Moore, Jerome Opeña, and everyone else involved in Fear Agent. Quite the undertaking, and we are proud to devote two entire episodes of Paperkeg to the entire series.
xoxo,
Paperkeg

160 ANNOUNCEMENT
Here we go.
Fear Agent has been a long time coming on this podcast, and not just because it’s @slim's favorite comic book of all-time ever. If you search through the Paperkeg catalog, there is even an episode where he admits to openly weeping during the final two issues of the series. He pretty much cries on air as he reads a page out loud good grief. Guy is a mess. 
What is Fear Agent?
When down-and-out alien exterminator Heath Huston stumbles upon an extraterrestrial plot to commit genocide against the human species, he must put down the bottle and resume his role as a peacekeeper… the last Fear Agent!
Acclaimed writer Rick Remender (Uncanny X-Force, Venom) is joined by superstar collaborators Tony Moore (The Walking Dead, Venom) and Jerome Opeña (Uncanny X-Force, Punisher) in channeling the aesthetic sensibilities and spirit of high adventure of classic science fiction, war, and horror comics — three of the genres that made EC comics the high-water mark of sequential storytelling. Fear Agent takes readers through lush new worlds populated by jellyfish superbrains, wild apemen, and sentient amoeba beasts, and finally back to the frontlines of humanity’s war with an automaton regime bent on universal domination!
If you liked Remender’s Uncanny X-Force, holy crap is this book for you. We’ll be talking about Fear Agent Library Edition Volume 1, specifically. Don’t worry too much about the Tales of the Fear Agent issues, we’ll likely spice those after the show and talk about our favorites.  If you grab the digital versions, be sure to get Re-Ignition, My War, and The Last Goodbye.
Dale has been running cross country like Forrest Gump on that elliptical of his at home, so we pray he has the energy to throw on the electric blanket and record this epic. Jonesy almost blew himself up after his iPhone charger lit on fire at work. Probably never moved that fast in his life when he zipped across the room trying not to become a dead Human Torch. Guy is like a gazelle. And what of Slim? Probably an emotional wreck right now, just thinking about reading Library Edition Volume 2 for 161. That’s where your emotions turn to so much Heath Huston putty. 
It all starts tonight with Fear Agent Library Edition Volume 1. Join us on Twitter, YouTube, Google Hangouts, or grab the legit episode Monday morning. Mmm, baby.
