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!

Well, Christmas is just around the corner! It’s time to wrack up that credit card debt, pack on the holiday pounds and try to squeeze some gaming time in between those pesky long hours at work, holiday get-togethers with extended family, and dodging pepper-spraying psycho shoppers at the malls. This week, the podcast Monkeys discuss geek culture and consumerism and reflect on the simultaneous joy and regret our over-spending on the hobbies we love has left us with some significant debt over the years. Pop on your fuzzy rabbit slippers, grab some hot cocoa, and be happy your finances aren’t our finances in this week’s pre-Christmas special!
