Author of Copernicus Jones: Robot Detective and the International Society of Supervillains and co-host of War Rocket Ajax and Movie Fighters Matt D. Wilson is here to discuss parody and satire. Along the way we discuss a the weirdness of the Tick Animated series, a little-known Jim Henson Muppet property, and we do our very best to get a Spacebars prequel comic series off the ground.  Signature Cocktail: The Valiant  Here’s to the pencil-pushers. May they stave off lead poisoning, and stay warm.  2oz bourbon 1/2oz rye 1/2oz dry vermouth 1/2oz sweet vermouth 1/4oz Grand Marnier, Cointreau or Triple Sec 2 dashes Angostura bitters Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice.
