Welcome back to another flawless episode of Canned Air!

    We welcome comic creators James Roche and Daniel Farrand to the show this week to first help us remember and celebrate Toys-R-Us in this weeks Retro Roundtable. With the recent news of the company going bankrupt, it’s hard to look back at our experiences with the store and not shed a tear. From bikes, to trains, and video games, it’s the biggest toy store there is. We didn’t wanna grow up, but we still did, so come help us summon our inner Toys-R-Us kids!

    Then we turn our full attention to Daniel and James to talk about The 4th Monkey: An Anthology for Awareness, running on Kickstarter until October 15th. The 4th Monkey is a comic book anthology featuring stories to raise awareness about environmental and social issues. Brought to life by 20+ comic book creators, each team will be creating a story about something that is near and dear to their hearts... or just something that's been bothering them.

    The 100 page book will feature 8 short stories revolving around the following topics: Online Bullying. Poaching. Political Polarization. Mental Abuse. Ocean Pollution. Pesticides. Alcoholism. Suicide. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this amazing project!

Welcome everyone to a very music inspired episode of Canned Air! We kick the episode off by talking about bands with fictional personas in this week’s Retro Roundtable. Bands like Kiss, The Gorillaz, The Aquabats, and Ghost have all added an element of fiction to their personas that not only proves entertaining, but adds another level of entertainment to any of their shows. See if we name any of your favorites!

 
Then we are joined by Starset frontman, Dustin Bates to not only talk about Starset and the bands mission, but also discuss The Prox Transmissions, a graphic novel that further expands the galaxy surrounding Starset. The novel, written by Dustin and Marvel's Peter David (Ben Reilly: Scarlett Spider, Spider-Verse) and illustrated by Mirko Colak, SKAN, and others, is immersed in Starset’s galaxy, telling the story of Dr. Stephen Browning who intercepts a secret transmission from space. But because Starset’s world is laced in dystopia and disaster, Dr. Browning finds himself in chaos as the message proves to be a dire warning from the future -- prompting him to seek help from Dr. Aston Wise, as they embark on a quest to discover the meaning of the message with the fate of humanity in their hands. This book hits shelves Sept. 26th so be sure to grab your copy before they’re gone!

After a technical error destroys this week’s episode, we leave you with the audio from a podcast we did with our friends from the Game Fix podcast. In this pod, we go around the table listing fictional characters from across pop culture who might be worthy enough to wield Thor’s hammer, Mjölnir. It was a great time that ended up a great podcast, so get in here and see who may indeed be worthy!
