Welcome to TheComicBookDen Year 3

What’s up Superfriends!? If you’re reading this that means that we’ve all entered year 3 of this thing together and it’s still chugging along. No doubt you’ve noticed that all our branding has been updated across our social media, you can thank Mr. Arden for toiling over that the last few weeks while getting way too much feedback from the other 4 of us. I’m sure you can imagine.

Anyways, hopefully you’ve had a chance to listen to the anniversary podcast where we do talk about all the great goals and aspirations we’ve set for ourselves and the podcast over the next year, if not I highly recommend you check it out down below.

Outside of that we’re working towards upping our podcast game in as many ways as possible, but more than anything we’d love to hear from you, the person who is reading this post right now. So if you’re reading this on the website, or maybe seeing it on Twitter or Facebook, let us know about it.

Anyways, we hope you’re excited about everything to come this year, we sure are, thanks for listening.

Fan Expo Canada 2017

Our Wet Hot Canadian Summer

Greeting Superfriends! It’s been awhile, how are you guys doing? See Spiderman? Pretty great right? Defenders is right around the corner on Netflix and some pretty intense new runs are coming out. You’ve likely noticed if you’re reading this that is been awhile since we’ve put out a new episode. Well we’ve noticed that too and we just wanted to let you know that we’re taking a short hiatus during this summer as some of us are moving and drastically changing things in our lives. As it stands right now we hope to be back on the trail by the end of August with new episodes and maybe even some new announcements. If you’re holding out for more ComicBookDen then just bare with us a little bit longer. We’re sure the wait will be worth it.

Your Superfriends,

The ComicBookDen

P.S. Obligatory Wonder Woman shoutout.

Ottawa Comic Con 2017

Of Things To Come

Hey Superfriends,

Hopkins checking in with you all again, this time to talk about the things that we’re planning for the new year and on for The Comic Book Den. We have a few things we can’t quite talk about just yet but here’s the gist:

-The show is returning to it’s original bi weekly format, so new episodes every two weeks. Mondays at 9:30am EST.

-Re Education Through Reading, our book review centred show has been shelved so that we can focus more on the main podcast and make sure it meets the level of quality discussion that we’re striving for. Don’t fret though you can expect more book centred¬†episodes in the future as well as written reviews and opinions here on

-We’re looking for more ways that we can engage with you, the listeners, so be sure to tune in for ways that you can help us make the show better. Please, please, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us on Twitter (@thecomicbookden) or on Facebook with show topics you’d like to hear us discuss, questions for the guys or just friendly constructive criticism.

-Just like last year we will be out in force at the Ottawa Comic Con in May with news and happenings from that event, so be sure to look forward to that. We may or may not be attending Fan Expo Canada again, Arden definitely will not but that’s his prerogative, more on that as we get further into the year.

-Lastly if you’re an independent comic book writer or artist we would love to feature your hard work on the podcast so please reach out to us so we can bring your creations to a wider audience.

The next episode of the show will be available on Monday February 13th at 9:30am  EST.

Until then,


Hopkins out.

Fan Expo Canada 2016

X-Men Pete-pocalypse bonus content

Based purely on the trailer, this “non-spoiler” site-exclusive companion-cast to our X-Men: Apocalypse podcast walks us through Produce Pete’s visionary synopsis of the movie (without actually having seen it).

Where have we been?

Are you a listener of the Comic Book Den Podcast? Are you asking yourself, “Where the fuck is this week’s show?”. Well we’re a bit behind, we’ve been planting toilet celery, attending Ottawa Comic Con, watching Civil War, reading books, ogling commissioned artwork and playing Uncharted 4.

But guess what Superfriends, tonight we’re hitting the Den and talking into some robot penises all for your listening pleasure, while we apologize for the hiatus I can tell you right now you’re gonna get some solid shows in the next few weeks, not to mention some surprises for you, the listeners. That is of course, if you even exist at all…

So don’t fret, content is coming.

See you at beers.
