Episode 55: Slumdog Millionaire with Joshua Williamson

Welcome to another installment of The Hour Cosmic, your favorite comics game show! This week, our guest is writer of "Captain Midnight" and "Ghosted," Joshua Williamson!

On this week’s show, among other things, we discuss:

- Josh's suspicions about the validity of this very game show!
- Brian Bendis, College Professor?
- Amalgam Comics!

Let's meet our guest, shall we?

Joshua Williamson is yet another Oregonian guest and, in addition to living in Comicstown, USA (aka Portland), he is currently writing "Captain Midnight" for Dark Horse, "Ghosted" for Image, and the upcoming "Nailbiter" for Image and "Predators" for Dark Horse. He is our first returning guest of the game show era of this show, and is one of the truly nice guys in comics. You can find him on Twitter (@Williamson_Josh), on Tumblr, and on his website. As always, your hosts are:

Brian Salvatore – New Jerseyan, New York Mets enthusiast, host of “Input/Output,” a music podcast, and occasional blogger/freelance writer. He has never met a dog he didn’t like (even that one that bit his leg when he was 10), and has baked better bread than he ever thought possible.

Chad Bowers – South Carolinian, GI Joe enthusiast, co-writer of “Subatomic Party Girls" “Down Set Fight,” and “Awesome Hospital” with Chris Sims, and writer of “Monster Plus.” He teaches us cool expressions like “Oh, snakes!” and has a lot of opinions about barbeque.

Matthew Meylikhov – Bostonian, cat and beard enthusiast, co-writer of “Detective Space Cat” with Colin Bell, writer of “Morning Glories Babies,” "Morning Glories Academy Study Hall" (both backmatter for the Image Comics series "Morning Glories") and “Control,” and letterer extraordinaire. He reads more comics than anyone on the planet, and has sworn off White Castle for life.

AND Mike Romeo – Philadelphian, Sam Kieth enthusiast, co-host of the Robots From Tomorrow podcast and one-half of Multiver-City One. He does a great Stan Lee impression, and is just a sweetheart of a guy. He is also on Twitter (@YeahMikeRomeo).
