Hey Everyone! I'm so excited to tell you that we have Christopher Sebela on the show this week! Writer of Evolution, Shanghi Red, Crowded and tons more! If I seem a little out of sorts with my interview techniques its because I was nervous! Having Chris on the was intense! I didn't want to geek out like a little fan girl but man I was so excited! Anyway, hope you enjoy!
The year is over! We've made it through a 2nd year of Smash N' Grab Comics and we are so excited to share with you what we have in store for you right out of the gate in January! Christopher Sebela, writer of Crowded, will be joining us for conversation for our first episode of the new year!

Shawn, the Youngish Man of Comics, joins the dynamic dorks as they ramble their way through Lucifer #2, Web of Venom: Carnage Born #1, and Middlewest #1.

This week Tyler sits down with comic creator Eliot Rahal to talk about Hot Lunch Special. Out on Aftershock, this comic is a mob story set in the upper Midwest and includes obscure locations like Sioux Falls, SD as well as Ely, MN. If you listen carefully you can see the makings of a budding bromance between Tyler and Eliot. They are definitely kindred spirits! If you aren't intrigued then you are listening to the wrong podcast!
This episode has nothing to do with Bauhaus. I couldn't think of a better title so I just picked my favorite art school. You'll just have to listen to find out what comics we talked about! I'm a lazy producer.
I completely forgot to put in the intro music and I'm too lazy to redo the mix. You get it. Anyway, on to the comics!
Stranger Things #1
Walking Dead #184
Dead Rabbit #1
Black Bird #1.
We only touched on Magi Order #4 but we both really loved it!
SiouxperCon 2018: Return of the Con! The highlight of my day was getting to interview the writer from My Little Pony, Tony Fleecs!
Also, new intro music!

No JP for this episode so Tyler just went nuts with his love for Jeff Lemire.
Some might say, me included, that Tyler has an unhealthy fascination with #jefflemire but I'm just the lowly intern. What do I know?
Theme Song is Sing Praise by #theflyingeyes
This weeks show covers Oblivion Song #2, VS #3, Gideon Falls #2, Dead Hand #1, Crude #1. Our local comic book heroes also mention Doug Mand and his podcast #doodiecalls. This is a must listen!
Theme Song, Sing Praise, is by the #flyingeyes

Artwork by the interweb's badass, Tyler. Inspired by JP, the Pretty Boy of Comics.

We've been away for a couple weeks, sorry about that! I've been recovering from pancreatitis and then a gallbladder surgery. The important thing is that we are back! It turns out it was an entire #imagecomics week. We hope you enjoy the episode!
Tyler and JP meander back into the mainstream and give their random thoughts on Justice League. At one point in the discussion JP makes a mistake and refers to Justice League as a "film." Please note this movie being a "film" is not the opinion of Smash N' Grab Comics or Tyler.
As always, keep it weird!
Intro: Sing Praise by The Flying Eyes
#DC, #theflyingeyes, #justiceleague
This week Tyler attempts (yet again) to host a podcast by his lonesome. Did it work? You be the judge.
Eternity Girl #1

Hey Smashers and Grabbers! We hope you had a great week and are ready for this weeks comic rundown! The guys put in a lot of work on this one (finally) and think you are going to totally dig this weeks books!
Oblivion Song #1
Highest House #1
Fu Jitsu #5
Spider King #1
Gideon Falls #1
The Ballad of Sang #1
The trash-mouthed tag team sat down for a two on one interview with Alien Toilet Monster creator Eric Barnett. Eric got to clarify some confusing points of his book while Tyler and JP explained their reasons for the bad review.
Intro music: Sing Praise by the Flying Eyes
A snowstorm kept the ambiguously gay duo apart this week so Tyler's wife stepped up to the plate and played the role of cohost. I think it turned out pretty good too. You might hear a few differences with this episode. First off it was recorded with a different microphone and secondly it was recorded in Tyler and Peggy's kitchen. You can hear quite about bit of extra sounds like their dogs.
The two love birds hashed it out over Death Bed #1 and Punk's Not Dead #1.
Hey Smashers and Grabbers! It is with an irritated heart that I have to tell you that I lost the original episode that JP and I recorded last night. This is a short recap of what we talked about. I wasn't able to get back together with John in time to put out another episode with the two of us. New comics tomorrow and all. Then the cycle starts all over again! Side note; I may have referred to Stabbity Bunny as Stabbity Rabbit in the episode. Just go with it, I'm a bit stressed today.
Lets try this again! If you've already downloaded the podcast please delete it and redownload. Something happened with the post-production and it came out super quiet! This is the new and improved version!
It was a slow week in comics but that didn't stop Tyler and JP from putting out a solid bm. They also put out this episode. They talk about the podcast Doodie Calls, The Bearenstain Bears phenomenon, as well as something called a poop knife. I don't know either but its all here and waiting to pleasure your earholes.
Theme song "Praise Song" by The Flying Eyes
Yes, that is a photo of Tyler's creepy blue van. Enjoy.
Tyler and JP get right to business and cut the bullshit. Last weeks episode of all chatting and little comics left a bitter taste in their mouths. The dynamic duo dug in deep and pulled an amazing episode out of their collective comic ass. Well, ok, amazing may be a strong word...slightly more than mediocre.
Here are the comics that those two fiends read this week
Vinegar Teeth #1
Imaginary Fiends #3
Another great episode of Smash N' Grab Comics in the bag. However, JP and I spent more time catching up and ranting than we did talking about comics. We got to a couple issues, though.
Call of the Suicide Forest #1
The Ice Cream Man #1
We're back baby! 2018 is going to be a killer year for Smash N' Grab Comics! Be sure to stay subscribed for your chance to win comics and other cool prizes.
This week we had some serious thoughts on
Walking Dead #175
Baby Teeth #7
Rat Queens #7
Planet of the Apes Ursus #1
Don't worry! This podcast has not gone religious! But there is a comic out this week called Judas and it is amazing!
Issues covered this week are
Under: Scourge of the Sewer #1
Thank you to the Flying Eyes for the theme song!
#flyingeyes, #imagecomics, #boomstudios, #statixpress #Jasonbiggs #judasiscariot #athiest #johnpauljones
Hey loyal listeners! The first to leave a comment or on whatever podcast service you use (or our website, or facebook) gets a free copy of the new John Wick comic! Also, I believe that JP said he'd throw in some cool stuff from his collection!
Special thanks to the Flying Eyes for the use of their song Sing Praise as our intro!
This week we hated on Paradiso. It was a crap of a comic, don't read it. However, the Walking Dead 174 was nothing short of AMAZING! Pick that gem up for sure!
Tyler admits that he is bi-curious! That is until he is told what the term means! What a noob! Vertigo is back with a new #1! Don't be a douche and miss out on this incredible episode!
Imaginary Fiends #1
Rat Queens #6
Made Men #2
Special thanks to the Flying Eyes for the use of their song "Sing Praise" as our intro! Check them out on itunes, bandcamp and anywhere else you download music from!
The dynamic duo of the podcast world tackled the big questions of life. Who is the better Spider-man, Peter Parker or Miles Morales? Will Donny Cates' luck ever run out? Why isn't Tyler reading Evolution? All of this and more on this weeks episode!!
Thank you to The Flying Eyes for the use of their song "Sing Praise" as the intro this week!
This weeks comics would have been listed here but I (Tyler) forgot to write down what JP read this week and I'm too lazy to text him. Enjoy the show!
Solo mission for Tyler on this episode of Smash N' Grab. The guys just can't seem to get their shit together enough to record an episode. Sorry for this being so late, Tyler and JP just couldn't get their schedules to line up.
With the news that HAPPY! has been given a full series order on Syfy, Tyler and JP decided to review the source material. The dangerous duo give their thoughts on the Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson comic book series without spoiling anything for any fans.
Tyler caught JP's cold! Is there anything these two don't share? The trash-mouth duo have some pretty hard thoughts on Alien Toilet Monster #1. They also reviewed Snot Girl #7, Kill the Minotaur #4, and Dark Ark #1.
This week the degenerates rant and rave about Realm #1, Sink #1, The Shadow #2, Babyteeth #4, Pestilance #4, Sacred Creatures #3. Also the guys make a plan to get Jason Biggs to call into the show. Nobody holds out much hope for that plan to succeed.
In this episode Tyler and JP geek out over Pestilence #3, Kill the Minotaur #2, Royal City #5, Sisters of Sorrow #1, and Brittania We Are About to Die #4. One of these issues may be on the chopping block. Be sure to tune in with the guys as they decide if they should cut … Continue reading Episode 3 Bromance with Andy Serkis →
