After a wonderous intro to this episodes special guest @gronowg, find out exactly why Departed shouldn't be compared to goodfellas and Casino.  If that wasn't enough education for your sensative ears find out what Gorilla Fingering is and why it's important to future Star Wars casting news.
But lo! then comes the part you've been waiting for where our three protagonists discuss all things...The Thing! reviewing both the original and prequel!  Requiem for Windows and just what is the problem G has with the snow mobiles?

That Games Podcast Episode 11 - Tom'll Fix It For You

2013-03-24

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/TGPEpisode11.mp3

After what feels like an eternity away that games podcast, the biggest games podcast on the internet (or at least on the sidekickcast website) returns. We ask the big gaming questions like how many consoles chris has bought since Christmas, why do we need kinnect when all you need is Steph pause and can Tom fix all the games problems in the world in a Jimmy Savile style. Also we have a new feature inspired by http://www.superpowerbeatdown.com/ where we pit video games characters against each other. And we're giving away a code for motorstorm RC and have a banging track from Manumit.

Sidekickcast Episode #79 - Viva La Bumchin

2013-03-20

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode79.mp3

Mikey Bumchin bangs in a hat trick on his 3rd Sidekickcast takeover.
There's a bumper edition of the news this episode including Mikey's own comic book story "Simple rules of time travel", the future of the Ghost Rider movie franchise, Nightcrawler in Days of Future Past, Future DLC for Injustice, Supergirl redesign and many more tid-buts!

In Stack Attack we devour and disseminate Age of Ultron 1 and Dan shows Bones how to use Marvel AR, Daredevil 23, new indie book Moon 1 & 2, All New X-Men 8 and Justice League of America 1.

Taking his takeover duties seriously, Mikey tries to dust the boys fan-fave Secrets & Lies, but Bones' knowledge of Beauty and the Beast songs may have him pulling further ahead!

Bumchin makes us check Kick-Ass' new trailer and finally the boys round of the show with a hearty debate about the future of the Kid Wonder; Robin.

Anyone who's ever wondered what Soylent Green would be like if it starred Magneto, should hold onto something!

Then into Stack attack where we hit up Uncanny X-Force 1, Batman 16, Young Avengers 1, Minute Men Finale.
Bones puts an end to Dan's attempted "Land Grab" last episode (because Dan forgot his fact book) and ups the game on Secrets and Lies - the comic book news quiz with a twist!
Then the boys give you a different take on Smack My Pitch Up for no other reason than they're under prepared and drunk. Listen in awe as they put your favourite comic book characters into movies you know but maybe don't love. Awesome outro music provided by @monitorclothing's Seanus savent. Don't forget to listen right until the end for some outtake gold!

Live and Direck from out Local Comic Shop! The boys takeover Dan's community service at Fish 4 Comics this episode and record live from behind the counter
Take a trip back in time with the sidekicks. This epsisode is brought from an era gone by when the Iron Man 3 Trailer had come out and Arrow was on Episode 2! But there's interesting tid-bits like only the sidekicks know how.
Defenders of the Earth and Marvel Now are just a few of the things discovered.
Then listen as the boys act like Xmas comes early when Diamond deliver the next days comic books, toys and apparel and leaves the door open for 4*&!£^$ ages!

A Sneaky jab at Stack Attacks reminds us that "In Remender we trust" and a suprise guest pops in...and the sidekicks rip him (no,it's not Mikey Bumchin) and Rob creates a new jingle!

The original sidekicks bum-rush the geek behaviour this episode with the usual japery you've come to X-pect!

After discussing the Marvel Now! teasers and giving their guesses on what's to come they touch on some Batman game news and move on to the ol' fave Stack attack in a Number 1-o-rama, where they dismantle, (from Vertigo) Punk Rock Jesus #1, (from Image) Revivial #1 & Harvest #1 and (from Marvel) Hawkeye #1.

Then Bones tests the sub-standard geek knowledge once again in the veritable mastermind quiz-show-with-a-twist Secrets and Lies. Will Dan clamber back up for the lower rungs of the geek division? Listen to find out!

Finally, Dan takes the second part of his journey through the Holy Western that is Preacher. Not to mention the boys playing parts of a chosen passage from the book in "Preacher Theatre".

If all this aint enough humdingin' goodness just stay tuned for the awesome outtakes where the boys prove that 72 episodes just isn't enough to get there Shiz together...

The first episode of experimental travel-blog-cast, An Idiot Sidekick Abroad arrives with a whimper as I bumble around Denver, Colorado in search of some comic books...not to spoil anything but I don't find many. This episode was supposed to be bigger, longer and is most definitely uncut.

Follow @gavlesidekick on twitter for live updates of the next episode as it happens, look out for #idiotsidekick. Whilst getting lost in Denver, I took some photos of the places I visited or just thought looked cool, I'll do this each episode...hopefully.

Presented for the very second time, it's the Bumchin Redux, starring Cardiff's answer to Stan Lee; Mikey Bumchin...there's some other guys along for the ride too in form of Dan, Gavin and Rob Fish. At the start of the episode there's some uninformed discussion about Marvel Now! and the Sidekicks turn on Bones for his Amazing Spider-Man review.

There's some reviews in Stack Attack, a Bumchin flavoured Secrets and Lies and the Sidekicks finish off with a little Smack My Pitch Up. If none of that makes any sense you clearly haven't been paying attention, go back and listen from episode one yo!

Check the out-takes past the outro music too.

We have a confession...this is not the podcast you were looking for...episode #70, the latest Bumchin takeover was lost to us in what can only be described as the balls up to end all balls ups. Please send all complaints to @danlesidekick.

What we have for you instead though is an edited version of The Sidekicks recent appearance on Showcase Wales, a new music radio show broadcast by GTFM and hosted by our very own Lee Wood (of That Games Podcast).

We can't promise you any of the usual abusive language, reviews or comic book new quizes but we still manage to get in some comic book talk and the DJ Clash to end all DJ clashes; Sidekick vs Sidekick.

Will Dan's winning streak continue in Secrets and Lies, the comic book news quiz with a twist, the power is in his hands.

Joining regular hosts Gavin and Dan in the Danger Room this episode is local comic book shop owner and fiends to the Sidekicks, Rob Fish. They all talk some bollocks about comics and movies including Avengers Assemble, Iron Man 3 and Gambit before moving on to some reviews in Stack Attack.

Reviews: AvX#1-2, The Omega Effect, Secret #1, Secret Service #1. Smoke and Mirrors #2, Red Hood and the Outlaws #8, America's Got Powers #1, The Manhattan Projects #2 and possibly more I can't quite remember right now.

In a twist to the usual set up, Rob tests both Sidekicks as he takes over Secrets and Lies and Smack My Pitch Up makes a dramatic return to the Sidekick final segment spot. Don't forget to listen past the outro music for the usual brand of ridicule and disaster.

Rocking the Stack Attack reviews was Avengers vs X-Men #0, Red Hood and the Outlaws #7, Batman #7, Smoke and Mirrors, Supercrooks #1, Crossed: Badlands #1 and Saga #1.

The comic book news quiz with a twist, Secrets and Lies gets interesting, Dan is still buzzing from last win but can he turn it into a streak? The Sidekicks close out the show with a reveal of the winner of #youdecide, whichever it is, this week's segment focuses on Avengers vs X-Men.

Sidekickcast Presents...Horror Panel CICAE 2012

2012-02-27

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastpresentshorror.mp3



To kick off the panel sessions at Cardiff Expo this year we presented 'WHAT’S THAT COMING OVER THE HILL? WELSH COMICS’ DARK SIDE' with Rich McAuliffe (Damaged Goods), Jamie Lambert (Dexter's Half Dozen), Dave Clifford (Dexter's Half Dozen) and Simon Wyatt (Unbelievable). Each creator gives us a run down of their book, a little behind the scenes on the process and some general horror inspirations banter.

This being the SIdekickcast, we manage to throw a quiz in there and take some questions from the audience.

Sidekickcast Episode #65 - Live and Direct Yo!

2012-02-19

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode65.mp3

This episode of the Sidekickcast is brought you in association with Geek News Radio and was broadcast live on Saturday 18th February.

Join Gavin, Dan and guest host Rob Fish for exactly one hour of live Sidekick and sometimes they even talk about comic books. In the news is Cardiff Comic Expo, the launch of Into the Woods, Before Watchmen and lawsuits a plenty.

A limited Stack Attack due to time constraints but we manage to get in reviews of Batman #6, The New Avengers #21 and Lou Scannon #1.

The comic book news quiz with a twist, Secrets and Lies manages to baffle even the most acute comic book minds but how will Rob Fish, owner of Fish4Comics cope, surely he should have no problem? We finish the podcast with a very brief, Amazing Fantasy Team Up before making way for the rest of that night’s live line up. We even manage to get some out-takes in just after the outro music.

2011-11-09

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode60.1.mp3

A new era begins for the Sidekickcast, from the ashes of the Sidekick Civil War rises a new website and a revitalized podcast. Don't worry it's same old dick and fart jokes with your regular co-hosts Gavin Jones and Dan Marshall, they eve manage to throw in some comic chat in between trying to make each other laugh. The show starts with some news updates on Sin City 2, Sidekick favourite topic; Age of Apocalypse and the new Avengers line up.

With a new start comes new reviews in Stack Attack as Dan has become totally overcome by DCNu fever, Marvel zombie no more, he's now a total New 52 convert.

Secrets and Lies, the comic book news quiz with a twist is still rocking but will Dan be able to take advantage of Gavin's recent bad form as the replacement Sidekicks have shown him how it's really done?

To end out the show we ask for your help in deciding our new final segment, you have the power in #youdecide. Don't forget to listen past the outro music for the usual brand of bad manners, extremely inappropriate language and out takes that would make Jeremy Beadle turn in his tiny little grave.

With Daniel Marshall still out of the picture, Gavin resorts to a different tactic in the search for a new co-host, he replaces one Daniel with another as Daniel Clifford takes to the hot seat. There's a lot of talk about Daniel, mostly by himself and then they look at some comics. In fact a lot of comics.
Stack Attack sees the majority of the The DC New 52 in one hit, foolish some may say...they'd be right.

Secrets and Lies; the comic book news quiz with a twist has a new challenger and one that is maybe up to the task. Daniel brings with him a choice for Dig That! as the new duo review The Amazing Spider-Man: Origin of the Species. Then everything changes...

This week we have a talk recorded live at Thought Bubble 2010 called From Panel to Film hosted by Impact Magazine’s John Mosby with John Romita Jr, Glyn Dillon, Adam Brockbank, Andy Diggle and Richard Starkings. Obviously it’s not one of our Sidekickcast panels but I enjoyed it so much I thought I’d let those that either couldn’t make it to the festival or were too busy pimping out their own books during the festival (you know who you are) a chance to hear it. Sometimes the sound is a little dodgy but for the most part it’s an interesting and revealing look into the process of going from the comic book page to the silver screen. Enjoy.

Sidekickcast Episode #46 - Twitter'd & Confused

2010-08-25

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode46.mp3

Somebody decided it would be a good idea to leave Sidekickcast regular hosts, Gavin and Dan to their own devices. Bad move. Left to podcast alone they decide it'd be a great idea to get wasted and then talk about comics.

What follows is pretty much a mess, they sign Dan up to Twitter, attempt to do a Marvel-free Stack Attack, failing miserabley, muddle their way through Secrets and Lies and vaguely mention Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life for Knowing Me, Knowing You.

Normal Service will be resumed when these jokers sober up.

Editor's Note;
So Twitter'd & Confused are our boys that you will Marvel at the ear-shattering bursts of absolute static erupting from your speakers at maddening and utterly unpredicatible intervals! Come get some!!

Sidekickcast Episode #45 - The Triumphant Return of Dr Strange-Creek

2010-08-02

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode45.mp3

This week we bid farewell to Ned as Second Coming comes to an end, so Mikey Bumchin pops in to say bye along with Sidekickcast regular hosts Dan Marshall and Gavin Jones. There's some more guerilla marketing going on and an unusual method employed to discuss the news from San Diego Comic Con 2010.

For Stack Attack we read Scarlet #1, Batman #701, Daredevil #508, The Thanos Imperative #2, Avengers: The Children's Crusade #1, X-Force: Sex and Violence #1 and X-Men: Second Coming #2.

There's a twist for this week's Secrets and Lies, to say anymore would spoil the fun. No Knowing Me, Knowing You but it will pick back next with Scott Pilgrim vol.1. Fear no as we do have Mike taking a look at Elephant Men vol.1 in Dig This! Don't forget to listen past the outro music for the stuff that got cut and if you realy do have to see Gavin in his Deadpool outfit then click here, it ain't pretty!

Sidekickcast Episode #44 - Sleeping with the Sidekicks

2010-07-14

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode44.mp3

This week on the Sidekickcast the lunatics take over the asylum; Gavin is convinced it's San Diego Comic Con even though it's not until this weekend and Ned manages to drink himself into a coma, so it's left to the consummate professional Dan to keep everything together. There's talk of X-Men: First Class casting, Marvel shorts, a new zombie book by some guys from Cardiff called Stiffs, i-pad graffiti and even a challenge laid down to the Sidekicks.

In Stack Attack we look at Invincible Iron Man #27, Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #3, Shadowland #1, Batman Beyond #1, Secret Avengers #2, The Death of Dracula and for Second Coming: X-Men: Legacy #237 and X-Force #28.

Just how will Dan react to losing a point in Secrets and Lies without even getting to play? Will he be able to get back what he didn't even lose? Umbrella Academy vol.1 went down pretty well for the last Knowing Me, Knowing You but will vol.2 Dallas fair as well? Don't forget to listen past the outro music for some hilarious out-takes and tune in next time for some actual SDCC news.

Sidekickcast Episode #40 - Legends in Exile

2010-05-19

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode40.mp3

Once upon a time in a far away land there were three princes; Prince Dan Charming, Bonny Prince Bones and the artist formally known as X-Centric Prince Ned. Together these princes formed a merry band of Sidekicks and set out into the wide world to spread the word of las comicas. Listen in as they tell tales of their upcoming adventures as far as the wetsern port city of Bristol for the Bristol International Comic and Small Press Expo to present a panel with the mighty pen-man of The Dark; Chris Lynch. Ok I'm growing tired of this Fables speak, so I'll just say we also talk about upcoming stuff on the site and learn the rules of the comic book fashion club.

In Stack Attack this week we take a look at Invincible Iron Man #25, The New Avengers Finale, Siege #4, The Sentry: Fallen Sun, Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #1, Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis #1, X-Force #26, Uncanny X-Men #524, X-Men Second Coming Revelations: Hellbound #1 and X-Factor #204.

We focus on comic book movies in Secrets and Lies; the comic book news quiz with a twist where you're the detective, sniffing out the carefully crafted misinformation. Our Knowing Me, Knowing You choice for Dan this week is Matt Fraction and Gabriel Ba's Casanova and we finally take a look at Fables for Dig This! Don't forget to listen past the outro music for the classic out-takes.

Sidekickcast Episode #39 - The Comic Book Volcano

2010-05-06

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode39.mp3

Just what is a comic book volcano? Why do Sidekickcast regular hosts Dan and Gavin care so much? Which of the Marvel bargain movies will we see first? How do we manage to link from this to the new Doctor Who? And most importantly what has guest host, the truly X-Centric Ned been smokin'? All this and more (well probably not much more) will be revealed in another tantalising trip through the world of the Sidekicks.

In a bulging review filled Stack Attack we take a look at Devil #3, Crossed: Family Values #1, Daredevil #506, Turf #1, Cowboy Ninja Viking #4-5 and as part of our coverage of the Second Coming event: Uncanny X-Men #523, New Mutants #12 and X-Men Legacy #235.

Secrets and Lies; the comic book news quiz that would test the investigational skills of even the world's greatest detective focuses on the happenings at the C2E2 convention. Dan hasn't done his homework for Knowing Me, Knowing You but at least his excuse is entertaining and Dig This! takes a nose dive too due to lack of actual comic books. Don't miss out on the best bit of the show; the post-outro music cock ups.

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode38.mp3

It's back to basics in the best possible way as regular Sidekickcast hosts Dan and Gavin geek out for the first time in a while with some talk about new Who, Captain America casting, Shadowlands and of course comic books.

This episode's Stack Atack sees the boys look at Nemesis #1, Blackest Night #8, X-Men: Second Coming #1 and New Avengers: Military Exclusive #8.

The comic book news quiz that is Secrets and Lies powers on with a snapshot of some of the news to come out of Wondercon 2010. Knowing Me, Knowing You makes a triumphant return with the double header of Akira for Gavin and Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 for Dan but which will come out on top? And finally the Sidekicks take a look at American Born Chinese as part of the listener appreciation programme we like to call Dig This! Don't forget to listen past the outro music to hear how crap we actually are when not cleverly edited.

Coming soon to raid a library near you; Sidekickcast hosts Dan and Gavin accompanied by the tyrant of trades Mikey Bumchin. To kick off the boys discuss Captain America casting and the Great Amazon Glitch, did you get your cheap books?

In a review-tastic Stack Attack we look at Siege #3, Blackest Night #7, The Flash: Rebirth #6, X-Men Legacy #234, Dark X-Men #5, Crossed #9, Chronicles of Wormwood: The Last Battle #3, Choker #2 and Green Hornet #1.

The score is 13-9 to Gavin in the only comic book news quiz that matters; Secrets and Lies, can you sniff out the wolf among the sheep? Still no Knowing Me, Knowing You but we have a double Dig This! as we taske a look at Kling, Klang, Klatch and Mikey pimps us Vertigo's Fables.

Sidekickcast Episode #36 - The Magic Number

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode36.mp3

So what is the magic number? One...two...oh who cares, especially when you've got another episode of The Sidekickcast to listen to. Gavin and Dan are joined this week by the elusive yet always good value X-Centric Ned for some chat about the latest animated offerings from both Marvel and Dc and then maybe a little comic book talk too just for good measure.

The boys tackle Stack Attack head on with reviews of Devil #1, Choker #1, X-Force #24, Ultimate Comics Avengers #5, Ultimate Comics New Ultimates #1, X-Men Hope, Amazing Spider-Man #623 and Absolution #6.

Secrets and Lies
; The comic book news quiz with a twist, who knows what the score is? Who cares? A good time was still had by all and you can play along at home, shouting mercilessly into your generic mp3 listening decive.

A slightly shorter episode this week as both Dan and Gavin get thrown in detention for not doing their homework for either Knowing Me, Knowing You nor Dig This! But don't forget to listen past the outro music to see just how smoothly this operation truly works.

We appear to have had some server problems so if you're one of the unfortunate people to have downloaded the half-arsed version of the Sidekickcast please re-download now for the full version. Apologies, we suck.

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode35.mp3

A change in venue brings out the free and easy side in regular Sidekickcast hosts Gavin and Dan. They attempt to bumble their way through the proposed Watchmen prequels/sequels surely offending anyone with more than two braincells to rub between them.

In the reviewaram that is Stack Attack we look at X-Force #23, Batman and Robin #7 & #8, Kick Ass #8, Daredevil #504, Ultimate X #1, Cowboy Ninja Viking #3, Dark X-Men #4 and Milestone Forvever #1.

Dan attempts to close the gap even more in this week's Secrets and Lies, the comic book news quiz that asks you no question but always tells you lies. Knowing Me, Knowing You makes a triumphant return with Punisher MAX #2 and we take a gander at Hack/Slash Omnibus vol.1 in Dig This! Don't forget to hang on past our very telling outro music for some cock ups of the highest order.

For this week only we present to you the hangover-cast, regular hosts Dan and Gavin are joined by Sidekick regular Mikey Bumchin to prove just how apathetic alcohol can make you, with some unsuccessful attempts to answer that timeless question: 'Comics, what's the point innit?!'.

In Stack Attack we review Uncanny X-Men #520, Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth #7, Wolverine: Weapon-X #9, S.W.O.R.D #3 and Drone #2.

Secrets and Lies; the comic book news quiz takes it's first ever victim as one Sidekick can't take the heat. Still no Knowing Me, Knowing You but we gloss over that with a look at Brian Azzarello's Joker in Dig That!. The out-takes after the outro music this week are essential listening, miss them at your peril.

Chris has been in training in order to bring his best game to Secrets and Lies but will he be able to deal with the pressure of being in the hot seat?

It's that time of year again for the Bonapalooza so of course regular Sidekickcast hosts Gavin and Dan are joined in the Danger Room by X-Centric Ned and Davlo closely followed by our good friend Mr Jack Daniels. The Sidekicks celebrate Gavin's birthday in style where gifts are given and el vino doth flow, theres even some catch about comics thrown in for good measure!

In Stack Attack this episode we take a run at Cowboy Ninja Viking #2, The Siege: The Cabal #1, Dr Horrible #1, Viking #4, Blackest Night #5, Daredevil #504 and Invincible Iron Man #20.

The score is 10-6.5 to Gavin in Secrets and Lies; the comic book news quiz that is sure to to confound even the most hardcore comic book fan. Will the backup Dan has brought along be enough to keep the pressure on and sniff out the lie?!

We continue our new segment Alt.Uses for Comics with the comic book stab vest. *DISCLAIMER* The Sidekickcast does not in any way support the use of knives as weapons and strongly feels that people should in no way attempt to copy or take safety advice from this bunch of idiots*DISCLAIMER* Nuff Said.

Our Dig That! choice for this week comes from Lil Fat Mikey in the form of The Alcoholic by Jonathan Ames. We'd like to wish everyone out there a happy holidays and don't forget to listen past the outro music for some very drunken out-takes.

Sidekickcast Episode #31 - Pink it's Not Even a Question

2009-12-01

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode31.mp3

Flying solo for the first time in a while, well actually there's two of them but you get the idea, Sidekickcast hosts Dan (Marshall Law) and Gavin (The Boneman) are bringing it back for the little man. We wander down TV memory lane with some Firefly chat which evolves into Dollhouse dissection and somehow make our way over to Reservoir Turtles.

In our comic book review segment; Stack Attack we take a look at Flash Reborn #5, Wolverine: Weapon-X #7, Blackest Night #5, Chronicles of Wormwood: The Last Battle #2, SWORD #1, X-Force #21, Daredevil #502, Supergod #1 and Batman and Robin #6.

It's all down to Dan in Secrets and Lies the comic book news quiz, how will he fair with nobody to watch his back? We experiment with some alternative uses for comic books with varying degrees of success, have you got any ideas for this dodgy new feature? Gavin ambushes Dan in Knowing Me, Knowing You with Punisher MAX #1 in the hope of bringing him over to dark side of Marvel Comics. Dig That! becomes another example of Staurt Tipples' attmepts to frazzle the Sidekicks minds with obscure and mind bending comics, this week it's Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean's Signal to Noise. We fade to black with our favourite colour and some proper stupid outtakes.

Sidekickcast Episode #30 - It Ain't the Filth!

2009-11-14

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode30.mp3

A little bit late this week due to all the Sidekicks being gainfully employed and lazy as all hell, Gavin and Dan are joined by Sidekickcast regular Mikey Bumchin for what's sure to be an X-Tastic episode. We start the show by taking a look at the Kick Ass movie and all the Halo media that's floating about at the moment especially the HellJumpers comic book by Peter David.

In a packed Stack Attack we bring back the 2 minute Wonder where Gavin tries to review as many comics as he can in 2 minutes, in his hung over state will he manage more than 3? We also take a look at Blackest Night #4, X-Necrosha, Psylocke #1,Black Widow: Deadly Origin #1, Last Resort #3, X-Force #20, Superman: Secret Origin #2, Haunt #2, Punisher #10, Wolverine: Weapon-X #5, Life Undead, Cowboy Ninja Viking #1 and X-Factor #50.

Can the dream team of Mikey Bumchin and Dan add to Gavin's downfall in Secrets and Lies; the comic book news quiz that tries to pull the wool over your eyes. The Torch #3 is the last hope in trying to get Dan to read something he wouldn't usually in Knowing Me, Knowing You. In a rare Dig That! we have the man that gave us Planet Hulk in the house to gage our reactions to the 2006 Marvel event. Don't forget to listen past the outro music for some ridiculous out-takes.

Lil Fat Mikey makes another return to the Danger Room to show Sidekickcast hosts Dan (Marshall Law) and Gavin (the Boneman) just how much he's fallen down the comic book rabbit hole. We take a look at some comic book animation in the form of Ghost in the Shell, Battle Angel Alita and Iron Man: Armored Adventures.

In the Stack Attack reviews we cover Batman and Robin #5, Daredevil #501, Uncanny X-Men #516, Haunt #1, Chronicles of Wormwood: The Last Battle #1, Invincible Iron Man #19, North 40 #3 &#4 and Crossed #7.

It's time to crap or get off the pot in Secrets and Lies; the comic book news quiz with Gavin so far in the lead with a score of 9-5. Can all the revision Lil Fat Mikey has done this week bring Dan back from the brink? In Knowing Me, Knowing You, Dan has Mike Carey's The Torch #2 to contend with, can we convince to pick it up for another week? We get a Dig That! recommendation from our favourite comic book dealer Kristian AKA the Comic Guru in the form of Salem Brownstone: All Along the Watchtowers. Don't forget to listen past the outro music for some ridiculously funny out-takes.

That's not all though, we also get a special BICS 2009 report from past Sidekickcast guests Crazy Boatman and Lil' Fat Mikey, the Sidekicks are amongst us and doing good works across the lands.

Secrets and Lies

It's the night before BICS 2009 (British International Comics Show) and I want to be all bright eyed and bushy tailed so I'll make this brief. District 9, Nicholas Cage as Superman and IMAX Watchmen fill regular Sidekick hosts Gavin (the Boneman) and Dan's (Marshall Law) intro to the show.

Stack Attack hits Giant Size Wolverine: Old Man Logan, Invincible Iron Man #18, Superman: Seceret Origin #1, Blackest Night #3 and Buck Rogers #4.

Secrets and Lies the comic book news quiz with a twist takes a trully traumatic turn for for one of our Sidekicks. New Marvel title The Torch #1 get's the Knowing Me, Knowing You treatment from Dan, will it make the grade?

We kick it old school for Dig That! all the way back to '93 with Vertigo book Enigma from Peter Milligan and Duncan Fegeredo. Don't forget to listen past the outro music for some out-takes just so you don't think we're too perfect.

Happy 1st Birthday Sidekickcast, can't believe it's been a year already? Neither can we, especially when some special friends send their congratulations.

The only way we know how with a truck load of comics, some beer and the company of two of our favourite Sidekicks Mikey Bumchin and Lil' Fat Mikey.

In a special UK edition of Secrets and Lies; our comic book news quiz Dan leads a full frontal assault armed to the teeth with comic geekery in an attempt to catch up to the evil quizmaster.

Sidekickcast Episode #25 - The Welsh Coast Avengers

2009-08-31

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode25.mp3

The World's (or at least Wales') Mightiest Heroes assemble for the 25th episode spectacular of Sidekickcast. The Sidekick role call includes regular hosts Dan (Marshall Law) and Gavin (The Boneman), Davlo graces us with his brain power and an X-Centric character from the old days makes a dramatic return. Did you make it to Avatar day? No? Well the Sidekicks have got you covered with their preview of the exclusive Avatar footage presented by James Cameron.

In Stack Attack this week The Sidekickcs review Batgirl #1, Daredevil #500, Viking #3, Poe #2, Cable #17 and Superman #688. Chris Claremont's X-Men: Forever #1-5 get's the X-Centric treatment, will it live up to past glories?

Dan assembles a crack team of comic book knowledge in our pub quiz-esque comic book news game Secrets and Lies. In Knowing Me, Knowing You, Dan tackles the sequel to last episode's choice; Superman: The Stand on Krypton whilst Gavin supposedly takes a look at The Losers vol.2. We end the show on a high brow note with The Arrival this week's Dig That! choice from comic book artist Stuart Tipples and the usual out-takes play out after the outro music.

Sidekickcast Episode #24 - Second Time's a Charm

2009-08-20

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode24.mp3

Almost the podcast that never was, the Sidekicks Gavin (the Boneman) and Dan (Marshall Law) strike back against Loki the God of Techno-mischief by recording this episode not once but twice. You know what they say 'Second Time's a Charm' and Godzilla, Playboy and Wolverine's family tree help prove these are wise words.

In the review-a-thon that is Stack Attack we cover Invincible Iron Man #16, Halo: Helljumper #1, Blackest Night #2, Justic League Cry for Justice #2, Chew #2, Absolution #1 and The Marvel's Project #1.

The comic book news gameshow should be a complete bust this week due to the double recording but it's never that simple with Secrets and Lies. Dan got Superman: Last Son of Earth whilst Gavin got The Losers volume 1 in a pretty kick ass edition of Knowing Me, Knowing You, surely they'll both love each other's choice? I Luv Halloween from TokyoPop get's the Dig That! treament in the Sidekick's efforts to better themselves through their listener's recommendations. Keep on trucking past the outro music to hear the sidekick cock ups and outtakes.

Sidekickcast Episode #23 - Black Lanterns & Silverfish

2009-08-06

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode23.mp3

In the latest episode of Sidekickcast your hosts Gavin (The Boneman) and Dan (Marshall Law) bumble through the headlines from the San Diego Comic Con; that most massive multi media convention from across the pond. They show once again how little they know but how much they love all things comics. This episode sees our best competiton yet so make sure you listen out for the extremely easy question and get emailing in for your chance to have the power in your hands.

In a machinegun style Stack Attack we review X-Force #17, Captain Britain & MI:13 #15, The Last Resort #1, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep #1, Battlefields: Tankies #3 and Ignition City #1-2.

Gavin has a somewhat ridiculous lead in Secrets and Lies; the comic book news roundup quiz so every point counts as Dan tries to claw his way back to the top. Apparently Dan stole Howard Chaykin's Elseworld Batman book Thrillkiller from the Danger Room last episode as he's now taken to self medicating his Marvel Zombiedom in Knowing Me, Knowing You. The Crazy Boatman provides this weeks recommendation for Dig That! in the form of David Lapham's Silverfish from Vertigo. Don't forget to listen past the outro music for some of the usual hijinks and out-takes.

Oh Lordy! Here we go again, Dan (Marshall Law) and Gavin (The Boneman) are on their own this week with 100% no defects for an entirely Marvel free podcast. Gavin tries and fails to convince Dan that Torchwood is worth a watch whilst Dan shares his wild conspiracy theories on the moon landings much to Gavin's disgrace. We also try to stay current with some casting chatter about the geek films in production and coming soon.

In a packed but Marvel free Stack Attack we hit a preview of The Dark #1 from Markosia, Blackest Night #1, Wednesday's Comics #1-2, North 40 #1, Poe #1 and Chew #1.

With the score at 3-1 to Gavin, Dan really can't afford to drop any more points in Secrets and Lies; the comic book news quiz that everyone can play along with at home. Knowing Me, Knowing You makes a triumphant return with Dynamo 5 from Image comics and this week's Dig That! choice is something that has been gaining alot of chatter on the forums recently Red 5's Atomic Robo. Don't forget to listen past the outro music for some fun filled out-takes.

Just the Original Sidekicks this week but Dan (Marshall Law) and Gavin (The Boneman) bring their A-game and even try their hand at a spot of acting class?! Who's bored of the whole Steve Rogers back from the dead storyline? No? Well that's lucky because the Sidekicks give their two cents.

Sidekicks three this week as regular hosts Dan (Marshall Law) and Gavin (The Boneman) are joined by semi-regular Davlo to discuss the Bristol Comic Expo and Small Press Expo aswell as the new Star Trek movie. Of course this being the Sidekickcast any in depth discussion and critique quickly descends into queries about Vulcan love organs. From our recordings at Bristol Expo hear Bones nervously ask Mike Carey an X-Men question during the DC Vertigo panel with interesting results in a Sidekickcast Exclusive.

In Stack Attack this episode we cover The Unwritten #1, Flash: Rebirth #2, Invincible Iron Man #13, Captain Britain & MI:13 #13, Solomon Grundy #2, New Mutants #1, Dark Reign: Young Avengers #1, Battle for the Cowl #2, Uncanny X-Men #509, Viking #1 and Superman: New World of Krypton #3...kinda.

We reset the clock in Secrets and Lies as nobody knew what the score was and couldn't be bothered to listen to the last few episodes, call it our own Marvel Re-numbering fiasco. In our ongoing series of reverse Dig This! we take a look at Battle Pope, recommended by forumite Mrs Meanie aswell as another run at All Star Superman vol.1 now that all the Sidekicks have read it. No out-takes after the outro music this week, instead we've got a special Lost vs BSG quiz that you can play along with at home.

Sidekickcast Episode #17 - An Evening With Monkeys With Machineguns (Live from Bristol Expo 2009)

2009-05-13

http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/podcast/sidekickcastepisode17.mp3

So here it is our first ever interview, un-edited and raw as hell as we spend an evening and quite a few drinks with The Monkeys With Machineguns (MWM) otherwise known as Chris Lynch and Stuart Tipples. A completely different format to a regular episode there'll be no Secrets and Lies or Stack Attack just pure unadulterated chat with two truly fun and witty independent comic book creators.

We find out how the Monkeys came to be, where they're going and where they'd like to find themselves in the future. We talk about each of their influences and what it's like to work as a team in the independent comic book industry. They of course want to tell everyone about their upcoming series; The Magpye and it sounds as though they could be onto something special with this new and inventive character.

I should warn you, this was recorded in the hotel bar so there's alot of background noise and the conversation get's more and more out of hand as the drinks keep coming. Chris and Stu take us on a hilarious journey branching off into all levels of geekdom as we descend into debate over everything from Grant Morisson's The Filth to the original animated Transformers movie to a comparison of Batman Returns and the recent Dark Knight film.

Just the original Sidekicks again as Gavin (The Boneman) and Dan (Marshall Law) get prepared to impress at Bristol Comic Expo by showing how little they know really know about comic book creators. And just what does it take to kill an X-Man nowadays?

Pretty much a Marvel-a-thon in Stack Attack with Uncanny X-Men #508, Wolverine: Weapon-X #1, New Avengers #52, Daredevil #118, Punisher #4, Avengers: The Initiative #23, Kick Ass #6, Incognito #3 and much more.

We've totally lost track of Secrets and Lies, nobody has any idea who is in the lead anymore and we need your help. We're gonna keep bumbling along but we need you to literally tell us the score, there may even be a little prize in it for you if you get it right.

A flip reversal in Knowing Me, Knowing You has Gavin reading Omega The Unknown and Dan tackling new title I am Legion. In other business the Sidekicks get down to reviewing the latest movie offering from the X-Men franchise; X-Men Origins: Wolverine will it be this year's Iron Man or carry on in the vein of X-Men: The Last Stand?

The battle continues into Secrets and Lies, with Dan on a charge backed up by the extra firepower of Mikey. Gavin will have to bring out the big guns to pull the wool over these sagacious eyes. Knowing Me, Knowing You get's flipped on it's head aswell as finally getting into Secret Six #2.

The boys kick it dynamic duo style this week due to popular demand so just the original sidekicks Dan (Marshall Law) and Gavin (the Boneman). Of course this means there's no Dig This! but they make it up for it with plenty of completely non-comics banter as the wheels of the show start to fly off!

Panelogists at Work (Q!PAW) for Knowing Me, Knowing You something Gavin has been trying him to do for at least three epsiodes now!

We discuss the book and the movie in no particular order and no particular purpose, just a bunch of mates chewing the fat about a movie they all went to see. Oh and some undiscovered audio clips from Rorscach's journal.

The Bonapalooza Birthday Spectacular hits the Sidekicks into a drunken frenzy making it pretty difficult to get much comic talk done at all and what there is could be described as the ravings of the town boozehound.

In Stack Attack we cover X-Factor #37, Secret Invasion #8, New Avengers #47, Cable #9, X-Force #9, X-Men: legacy #218, Marvels: Eye of the Camera #1 and Gigantic #1.

Will the Sidekicks claw some points back in Secrets and Lies or will the Boneman's masterplan to confuse and confounder continue? The Twelve is out and FEAR Agent is in for Knowing Me, Knowing You.

Warning this episode contains an extraordinary amount of spoilers concerning Batman R.I.P. and Secret Invasion, as well as excessive amounts of alcohol so expect extra long out-takes after the outro music.

Stack Attack plays catch up as we now have access to our comic book shop once again so we're able to pick up on the important issues we may have missed over the last month. Reviews include Magneto: Testament #2, 1985 #6, Back to Brooklyn #2, X-Men Legacy #216-217, Uncanny X-Men #503 and we catch up with Ultimatum in the Ultimate Universe.

X-centric Ned fulfills his promise to delve deep into the events that lead to Angel's original fall from grace to become the recently returned Archangel. You may think you know the X-Men but this may shed a whole new light upon them and their motivations.

With The Boneman taking a 1-0 lead last time in Secrets and Lies will the rest of the Sidekicks be able to even the score this week and weed out his carefully crafted falseties. And will the Sidekickcast's tough customer Marshall carry on reading Marvel Comics' The Twelve, find out in Knowing Me, Knowing You.

We'd like to take this opportunity to say that whatever you hear in this podcast we are all very big fans of Mr Kevin Bacon and wish him well, no matter how it may sound.

Things get real at Sidekick central, find out just why everybody hates Dan?! This week your regular team have a man down as X-centric Ned takes a much needed rest but Dan (Marshall Law) and Gavin (The Boneman) are in full effect and joined by new sidekick John (Gutterballs) and the Wizard of the World Wide Web Neil (The Boatman).

Reviewed in Stack Attack this episode we have Secret Invasion #7, New Avengers #45-46, Mighty Avengers #19, Daredevil #111, Back to Brooklyn #1 and Invincible Iron Man #1-6. With no X-centric Ned this week we had to think fast and replace him with something just as high brow, so we came up with Secrets and Lies, our very own comic book gameshow. The question you've waiting two weeks to find will be answered in Knowing Me, Knowing You, will Dan be able to see past dopey names and enjoy Marvel's The Twelve?

Neil tackles Mark Millar's Superman: Red Son in Dig This!, will he dig it? Do you dig it? Why not let us know by joining us on the comic forums. And we finish off with some movie talk with the DVD release of The Incredible Hulk and recent releses at the cinema.

Don't forget to listen past our outro music for hilarious (some may say) out-takes from your Sidekickcast team.

The wait is over, I know you've missed your team of Sidekicks so we're back (we told you we would be). Here we proudly present the often difficult third podcast, Sidekickcast Episode three. Sidekick regulars Gavin (the Boneman), Dan (Marshalllaw) and Ned (urgh...Ned) are joined at the Watchtower by Alex (Sidekickcast composer), and what a team-up it turns out to be.

Without any Marvel comics in our stacks this week how will the sidekicks manage? and just why are there no comics? Reviewed in Stack Attack this week are War Heroes #1-2, Justice League of America #25, Secret Six #1 and Fringe #1. All this is followed by a continuing in depth analysis of the Purifiers and X-Force #1-6 (Angels and Demons) with X-centric Ned.

Knowing Me, Knowing You comes to a head and there could be blood spilled! Nuff Said! And we're confronted by a modern classic in the form of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns in our 'everyman' comic pimping Dig This!

And finally find out how far the Care Bears have fallen since the cancelling of their tv show, make sure you keep listening past the outro music for some hilarious out-takes. Parental Advisory, here be porn talk.
