For gamers and geeks alike, comic books are essential for building up your geek street-cred. While we here at Monkey in the Cage are a little behind the curve on mainstream comics, we’re working to fill the holes in our geek game every week. Join us this week as we talk comics and comic artists, both big name and independent, with our special guest, designer and illustrator Dennis Salvatier. We talk everything from the comics of our golden age (the 90′s) through the books that influence and entertain us today. Squeeze into your spandex, fasten the clasps on your cape, and get ready for a wild ride on this weeks all new episode of Monkey in the Cage!

With the meteoric success of The Walking Dead and the subsequent weekly zombie vacuum left on Sunday nights, we here at the podcast (and most everyone else out there in pop-culture land) can’t seem to get enough of the rotting, cannibalistic dead come to f*ck up the humdrum routine of society. Joining us this week are two very special guests – actor/writer and voice of Red Dead Redemption’s Bill Williamson, Steve J. Palmer as well as comic artist Guy LeMay, creator of Z-Blade XX, Zombie Headhunter, and The Entity Knights – as we discuss zombie movies, games, and the genre in general. Stock up on supplies, shine up your bullets, and pay attention because you’re going to want to change your zombie apocalypse plan after listening to this week’s episode of Monkey in the Cage!

Okay, admit it. You’re just as guilty as the rest of us. When it comes to the geeky things you know and love, there isn’t anyone out there that is going to change your mind on why it influences you or why it’s important. Even if that means a little “nerd rage” from time to time, or a lot if you happen to be Matt. This week we’re talking about the proverbial Dark Side of geekdom, that evil place where your passion for something geeky almost destroys it’s awesomeness because you’re too hung up on your own fanaticism. So, sit back and enjoy as the battle lines are drawn in this epic nerd rage debate!
