Fuck You Martha Stewart!

A cult of people wrongly accused by the media take their revenge on the press that did them wrong.  This week we are reading the debut comic of polarizing writer/artist Jonathan Hickman on the 10 year anniversary of its release.



  • 1 1/2 oz vodka
  • 4 oz ginger beer
  • 1/2 lime
  • 2 thin slices cucumber

In a glass add vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice.  Stir to combine. Garnish with cucumber. 

There is a story that goes along with this drink.  Check out Episode 30 for the details.

 Episode 30 - The Nightly News is out tomorrow on iTunesGooglePlayStitcher, and TuneIn

Dark 'N Stormy

This week we enter the Demilitarized Zone, AKA the DMZ, AKA Manhattan.  The story takes us thru a war torn New York in the center of a second American Civil War. Vertigo presents DMZ, a tale from expertly written by Brian Wood with beautiful Art by Riccardo Burchielli.

  • 2 oz Dark Rum
  • 1/2 to 3/4 oz Lime Juice
  • 4 oz Ginger Beer

Add rum and lime juice to a glass.  And Ice and stir.  Top with ginger beer and garnish with a lime wheel if you so desire.

Note: Adjust the line/ginger according to the sweetness of the rum/ginger beer.

It may be a bit of a stretch, but Bryan likes this simple cocktail, and things are "Dark and Stormy" for America, Manhattan, and the characters in DMZ.

Suffering Bastard

This week we stretch our feminist muscle with Bitch Planet.  We read the first collection of this current series by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro.  It is both a feminist parody of exploitation films, specifically women in prison movies, and a great commentary on society.

1 oz burbon
1 oz gin
.25 oz lime juice
1 dash orange bitters 
.5 oz ginger liquore
add ginger beer

Mix all the ingredients together.  Top off with ginger beer.

The men in this comic are suffering yet, but I'm sure they will eventually get the suffering they deserve.

The Amelia Mintz

Monday morning we are please to discuss the 2009 Chew trade paperback: Tasters Choice.  From the minds of John Layman, and Rob Guillory comes a humorous look at police work, chicken prohibition, cannibalism, love, murder, psychic powers, and alien invasions.
