You may have noticed that there have been some strange new things popping up on Geekade lately. That would be the result of a new partnership with the online community Comic Book Fans United. Who are they? What does this all mean? Don't worry, it's a good thing. Let's take a minute to introduce our new friends.
The goofballs you see in the picture above are the fine folks in charge of CBFU (except the 13-year-old communist). They're all rabid fans of comics and other aspects of geekdom, and they're bringing with them several new forms of content. Let's run down the list, shall we?
The Comic Book Fans United Podcast - Unlike our other podcasts, CBFU is a video podcast that goes up regularly on the ol' YouTube. Now, you'll also be able to find it on our YouTube page, as well as right here at Geekade.com. Each episode, a roundtable of CBFU admins gather together and discuss the latest news, books, and whatever else they deem necessary for your amusement. The language can get a bit salty, but it's a genuinely good time, filled with some interesting discussions.
Between 2 Beards - Speaking of salty language, B2B is a new audio podcast that also mainly centers around comics, TV, and movies. To say it's vulgar would be a gross understatement, but if you aren't easily offended, it's absolutely hilarious. Every other week, Carlos, Topher, Fredo, and Kevin discuss the awesomeness of comics, "nerd" related media and hopefully make you laugh in the process.
CBFU: From The Shop - While we're still talking about comics, CBFU also has a weekly review video series! Every Wednesday, a rotating cast of CBFU admins get together at Manifest Comics in Bayonne NJ to review the books they read the previous week. In fact, a new episode went up yesterday! Check it out in our Videos section.
Tiger Driver '91 - Finally, rounding out our wrestling coverage, we have a new wrestling focused podcast! Fredo, Carlos and Joey sit down and talk wrestling and a collection of other stupid things that manage to come up. New episodes go up every other Wednesday!
And that pretty much covers it. Check out their shows, and let us know what you think. These are all extremely good folks that we've known for years, and are very proud to have on board. We're still working some of the kinks out, but you can expect to see lots more from them, as well as some crossover with some of our existing content.
Welcome to Geekade, CBFU. Hope you survive the experience.
