We welcome comic creators James Roche and Daniel Farrand to the show this week to first help us remember and celebrate Toys-R-Us in this weeks Retro Roundtable. With the recent news of the company going bankrupt, it’s hard to look back at our experiences with the store and not shed a tear. From bikes, to trains, and video games, it’s the biggest toy store there is. We didn’t wanna grow up, but we still did, so come help us summon our inner Toys-R-Us kids!
Now we turn our full attention to Daniel and James to talk about The 4th Monkey: An Anthology for Awareness, running on Kickstarter until October 15th. The 4th Monkey is a comic book anthology featuring stories to raise awareness about environmental and social issues. Brought to life by 20+ comic book creators, each team will be creating a story about something that is near and dear to their hearts... or just something that's been bothering them.
The 100 page book will feature 8 short stories revolving around the following topics: Online Bullying. Poaching. Political Polarization. Mental Abuse. Ocean Pollution. Pesticides. Alcoholism. Suicide. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this amazing project!
