Episode 68: The American Dream with Brandon Seifert

Welcome to another installment of The Hour Cosmic, your favorite comics game show! This week, our guest is writer of "Disney Kingdoms: Seekers of the Weird," Brandon Seifert!

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

- Brandon's freakish Marvel knowledge!
- The oeuvres of the Spin Doctors and "Weird" Al Yankovic!
- Perhaps the best discussion round in the history of our show!
Let's meet our guest, shall we?

Brandon Seifert is currently writing "Disney Kingdoms: Seekers of the Weird" for Marvel, and is the co-creator and writer of "Witch Doctor" for Image/Skybound. In addition to those books, he has written "Clive Barker's Hellraiser" for BOOM!, "Spirit of the Law" for Monkeybrain, and worked on "The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe." You can follow him on Twitter (@BrandonTSeifert), find him on his website, or Facebook, or check out the official "Witch Doctor" 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.
