Welcome to a Grown Ass Men 2017! We wanted to start this year with a bang so we chose a topic everyone has an opinion about; what's better, Star Wars vs. Star Trek!? We certainly have our thoughts about it and we asked folks in the GAM community what they thought as well. It's a fun episode, give a listen!

When you think of the giants of the comic book industry, its inevitable that Chris Claremont will be at the top of the list. He joined the Marvel Comics Bullpen in the early 70's and went on to pen some of the greatest stories in comics. Besides his classic work on Iron Fist, New Mutants, Batman, Fantastic Four and others, he basically elevated the rebooted X-Men team to the most popular in comics. Many of the X-Men and Wolverine movies are based on his stories.
Two weeks ago in December, Grown Ass Men sat down via phone with Chris for an interview. Amazingly, he has a near perfect memory about everything! We chat early influences, his start at Marvel, what he's up to now and, of course, the Uncanny X-Men. Don't miss it!
Happy holidays and thanks for listening fans! We'll catch you in 2017!

In the spirit of the great NYC comic book heroes, Grown Ass Men like adventures in a good ole' warehouse. A few weeks ago, we traveled to the recesses of Sunset Park, Brooklyn to get a private visit with Joe Koch, owner of the Koch Comics Warehouse. Any comic book fan would be blown away by the sheer volume of collectibles and we were no different. Besides touring the premises, we got a chance to talk to the owner, Joseph Koch, a comic book store veteran who's incredibly knowledgable about the industry. Enjoy!

Motorcycles. They’re just cool. There’s no debate about that. But there’s always a little debate over which comic book hero looks most awesome riding a badass hog. Ghost Rider? Cap? Batgirl? Black Widow? In this episode we explore these pulse-pounding questions with special guests Jimmy Dean Horn and Mary Micari. Climb on back, true believer — we’re hitting the road.
