A bucket of news and most of it is good! Great, even!

The mystery of of the huge sales on some Marvel books? SOLVED! Not by us, but by people with drive & motivation! The speculation about what is happening both the DC’s movie verse and the new 52. Lots of con talk, books we read this week, what we’re looking forward to this week and we actually remembered our weekly question this time! All this, and the Shocker’s couch!

Justin and Kevin are back with this month’s installment of ¡VIVA CHIKARA! As requested by the listeners, the duo gives their thoughts on “You Only Live Twice” including what they liked and disliked, what seemed most like the CHIKARA of old, and what they hope for CHIKARA’s future. Then we move forth with discussion regarding all three shows in Chicago and Detroit this weekend. Which matches are they most looking forward to and why? And it wouldn’t be an episode of ¡VIVA CHIKARA! if Justin didn’t go on a rant about the roster page. All this and a Stardust action figure on this month’s edition of ¡VIVA!

"How I Met My Buddies" Episode 8 - Leonard F. Chikarason (hosted by #AllEgo)

EONARD F. CHIKARASON (podcast host – LONGBOX HEROES, wrestling commentator – ABSOLUTE INTENSE WRESTLINGCHIKARA) returns to Wrestlefolks for his now-monthly TWO HOUR visit to watch some weird stuff on Youtube! Such as…

- Buff Bagwell showing his stuff on The Jenny Jones Show
- “Mean” Gene Okerlund showing some young kids how it’s done
- The Road Warriors getting their D’s wet on 1989 sitcom Learning The Ropes
- Korchenko, the only Russian ever born in Jerry Lawler’s basement
- Nasty Boy/Hulk Hogan’s fattie Brian Knobbs’ reality television debut

Follow Leonard on Twitter – @LFChikarason – and check out his weekly comic book podcast LONGBOX HEROES at!

Event Center (6.13.14) with words from 17 and Amasis.

Todd and Leonard are back and never left at the same time! We talk about one of the craziest comics stories in quite some time! A deep discussion about Marvel’s variant cover policy and if it’s a good thing or a bad thing. We talk Daredevil casting news and somehow it gets toAdventures in Babysitting. Trust me, it all makes sense.

All this, what we read last week, what we’re looking forward to this week, digital sales and freebies. But DANG IT, in our excitement, we forgot a Twitter question! We’ll let you know here shortly.
