Oh dear friends of dragons who are sneaky, welcome to the first show of a brand-new year of Sneaky Dragon! There are some changes afoot as we start the new year: Ian has been fired and David has been replaced by a goat.
No, but seriously, Ian and Dave are fired. But they’ve been replaced by whole new Ian and Dave, who will be bringing a fresh new attitude to Sneaky Dragon! This week they talk about comics: can they ever be anything other than something Joss Whedon makes good movies from or in which handsome actors play unconvincing nerds? Is digital downloading a whole new ghetto? What they’re saying is: End comics apartheid! Also discussed: how are movies, books, plays and comics different from each other; why is On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (according to Dave) the best Bond film; what Dave does to save money; where Ian infected thousands of people; and for what reason Dave is not invited to funerals.
If you live in the Vancouver area, you can come see the trivially-challenged Ian and Dave in a hockey trivia challenge. This is a fund-raiser for Canucks Place Children’s Hospice, featuring the hockey film Goon and lots of local comics and celebrity guests. You can get tickets here and read more about it here.
Which James Bond film do you think is the best, dear listener? Ian and Dave would like to know!
