George also talks about a new film project from frequent guest Bryan Loy being crowd funded through Indiegogo. Please check out Mount Skylight at www.indiegogo.com/projects/mount-skylight-a-short-film--2#/ and consider becoming a backer.

Finally, check out Spongebob Comics #72 with cover art (and pencils and inks on the lead story) by friend of the show Gregg Schigiel (www.hatterentertainment.com).

This week, his wife Amy joins George to correct everything he said! OK, that might be an exaggeration but you still get to hear her side of the stories. Plus, like she did on episode 175, Amy talks astronomy!

The Heart of NOVACON

George is joined by guest co-host Tom McKeon, otherwise known as the Heart of NOVACON. NOVACON (www.thenovacon.com) was the comic, gaming, cosplaying, pop culture event held at the Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner, VA July 28-30 this year. Last week you heard George speak with Ming Chen from AMC's Comic Book Men at the convention (check out episode 183 in our archives at www.georgeandtony.com) and you heard George and his nephew Frank discuss their volunteering experiences. This week, Tom tells George about his own adventures volunteering in almost all aspects of the show. 

We had originally planned a round table discussion about NOVACON but scheduling conflicts prevented that. Not only did Tom provide more than enough behind-and-in-front-of-the-scenes stories, George also had a chance to record a conversation with Kevin Bednarz, one of the key players behind NOVACON. This episode provides a nice epilogue to NOVACON 2017.

Blue, Ace, and Tu-Tone

After guest co-hosting on episode 179 just a few weeks ago (check our archives at www.georgeandtony.com), Eric from Longbox Review (www.longboxreview.com) returns and George makes good on his promise to not discuss comics with a man who has a podcast solely about comics! So, what do our heroes talk about this week? How about vacations, summertime fun, the ins and outs of Idaho, sonograms, training for 5k races, beer, and feeling nostalgic? It's our Christmas in July gift to you. You didn't think we'd let the Hallmark Channel have all the fun now did you?

Plus, a special announcement about NOVACON from none other than Ming Chen from AMC's hit show Comic Book Men (coming back for a seventh season in October). NOVACON is coming to the Ritz Carlton in Tysons Corner, VA THIS WEEKEND (July 28-30, 2017)!!! Get all the details and your tickets at www.thenovacon.com. You might even see George at the Registration Booth. You will definitely see Ming Chen there Saturday and Sunday...and you can hear him on the show next week!
