#056 - Your Hair Is Already Dead (Try To Sleep Now)

Is there someone out there you love enough to purchase some of their hair? Or any of their body? These are the kinds of things we discuss on our show, and also Super Cute, our webcomic. Tweet us whose hair you'd purchase through Twitter. Or yeah, email it to us at You could even go to Facebook for us and Super Cute. Fanoff has lots of people whose hair you could maybe buy. Tumblr has art, not hair, but is there really that big of a difference? Comic Booked is only now developing a way to keep their hair from being stolen and sold on the black market. Please. Go subscribe to us through iTunes. We won't try to sell our hair if you do.

Episode #056:
• Intro -  David and Austin briefly switch brains, then talk about Discount Comic Book Services.
• Topic Thunder - The new Batman game gets discussed A LOT; a third season of "The Walking Dead" is already guaranteed; Marvel hates its employees?; Ed Brubaker will write a movie; and someone is going to own Jerry Siegel's hair, and that person isn't Jerry Siegel.
• Wizard World - Mid-Ohio: David attended Mid-Ohio con, and we discuss it and how kids are the future. Also, Perry, if you're reading/listening to this, give us a shout. You're awesome.
• Outro - See ya' 'round.

David Hopkins and Austin Wilson would probably keep some of each others' hair. Austin's bald though. They would find a way around this. Episode #056 runs 1:31:28. Please read our webcomic Super Cute, and please download more Hideous Energy episodes through iTunes or

#055 - Our Existential Crisis

There is a very certain character arc to this episode. We start out feeling normal, and end up questioning our very existence at the end. Read things that are similar to this show on our webcomic. Show Twitter some love. Email and talk to us whenever, at your leisure. Facebook has us and Super Cute. Fanoff will help you quit whatever you need to, cold turkey. Tumblr shines and shimmers. Comic Booked would totally pick us for their kickball team. Subscribing to us through iTunes means you don't really have to do too much to get us each week.

Episode #055:
• Intro -  Candles and voodoo and Discount Comic Book Services.
• Topic Thunder - The Walking Dead TV show premieres to huge numbers, but is maybe not as good as the numbers say; New York Comic Con pulled in some huge numbers, and also announced a bunch of stuff. We talk about a few of the announcements.
• Top 5(s) - We do two separate Top Fives this week. First, Verbs or Nouns That Would Make Good Superhero Names. Second, Stupid or Useless Super Powers.
• The Listen Bitches - Austin picks "God Killed the Queen" by Louis XIV, and David picks "Zero" by Smashing Pumpkins. Oh yeah, we also get completely into our own shit, and talk about whether or not we're immature (we are), but also about how much we love comics and how serious we take things. It is interesting?

David Hopkins and Austin Wilson know who they are, and wonder if other people do too. This show runs 1:37:14. Go check out Super Cute! Please download our other episodes and spread the word about how reliable we are about teetering back and forth between normalcy and absolute insane weirdness.

#053 - We're Mean and Andy Kirby Is Nice

Titling this episode was a very delicate process. We were presented with so many options, some compliments of our special guest Andy Kirby, and some generated out of our own fetid mind-swamps. Go check out Andy Kirby on the Marvel 616 podcast, follow them on Twitter and Facebook! They're cool guys, with cleaner vocabularies than Austin's was when he was in Kindergarten. Please read our own webcomic, which now has the ability for you to comment and be nice to us! Go to Twitter, it is waiting. Email and the circle will be complete. Facebook really, seriously needs you to click like for us and Super Cute. Fanoff will never leave us, right? Tumblr needs love too. Comic Booked has so much stuff for you to enjoy, including us. Your day won't be over until you download us and subscribe to the show through iTunes!

Episode #053:
• Intro - Skunky and Kankwar. After that we regain our senses and discuss Discount Comic Book Services and only make a couple of outrageous claims about their services. Go check them out!
• Topic Thunder - Image invades the digital world; Patton Oswalt hates DC and having fun with them (maybe?); a new Batman cartoon dares to be completely awful sounding; Marvel announces some new movie titles; and Dan Didio crushes the dreams of us ever reading a book called "The Crisis Crisis."
• Comic Peeps - We chat with Andy Kirby about his love for comics, and how and when he came to them. We only say weird or gross things a few times in this segment, so your family can probably listen. The rest though? Probably might need to screen those first.
• Vampires and Magicians - An attempt at an intro turned into us talking about vampire sex and their dead/undead physiology; also, magicians and books about them.
• Top 5 - Insult Book Titles - Suggested by fan Alex Warn! This one is his and David's fault.

David Hopkins and Austin Wilson have said a lot of gross things. Sometimes they record them, most of the time not. This time Andy Kirby joined in on the gross fun. This show runs 1:36:00. Go read the newest Super Cute comic, then subscribe to us through iTunes. Enter funny joke about subscribe versus prescribe here.
