Announcing: Early Night with James and Brandon! The Show!

PureSpec and Comics! The Blog present:

Early Night with James and Brandon! The Show!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if we were given the keys to their very own late night talk show? Listen, in our heart of hearts, we know that you’ve secretly been waiting for this moment, whether you’ll admit to it or not. And now it’s here!

For the first time ever, we’ll be taking the stage for our very own live talk show at this year’s Pure Speculation festival, delivering late night laffs in a prime time spot.

This is now how I will end every conversation.


The show takes place on November 17th at the Grant MacEwan Robbins Health Centre, running from 6pm to 7:30. To attend, you must have tickets to PureSpec, so don’t show up and just expect to get in. We love you, but these folks are taking a ridiculous and unnecessary risk by letting us talk to a room full of people for over an hour, and they should be richly compensated for that courage.

You can grab tickets for the full weekend (or just Saturday) online at their website, or you can pop in to Wizard’s Comics or Happy Harbor, where they will gladly give you a full weekend pass in exchange for $40 slim dollars. (An aside: we highly suggest you nab the weekend pass, which grants you FREE ACCESS to the big Taste of PureSpec on Friday. It’s a hoot.)


If the chance to hear our supple voices in person is not enough to tweak your lobes, we have just the thing that’ll do it.

During the show, we’ll be interviewing the darling Matt Fraction and the dapper Kelly Sue DeConnick, writers of book such as Casanova, Invincible Iron Man, Osborn and Captain Marvel! They will be our special Skype-in guests, alongside whatever else we have planned (but can’t quite announce).

It should be a pretty rad time, so drop in, check out PureSpec, and then hit our big show! You’ll be glad you did!

Brandon is a comic book manager at Wizard's Comics in Edmonton, and a staff writer for Comics Beat. He's also the co-creator of Comics! The Blog, and an occasional writer. He hasn't written anything in days, probably.
