It’s Comic Con weekend, and our scheduled guest on “Ask Mr. KERN” this week is my old friend writer-producer Zack Stentz, whose resume includes “Fringe,” “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” and two of last summer’s three big Marvel blockbusters: “Thor” and “X-Men: First Class.”
Stentz’ first novel “Colin Fischer,” the tale of an Asperger’s-afflicted teen detective, hits shelves Nov. 8.
Regular panelists “Movie Mike” Armendariz and Stefani Dias are at Comic Con tonight, so we might be getting a live report from San Diego.
Maybe we’ll talk about some of my favorite current comics, including “Hit Girl,” “Super Crooks,” “Secret Service,” “Angel & Faith,” “Buffy Season Nine,” “Earth 2,” “The Shade,” “Action Comics,” “Batman Incorporated,” “Next Men” and even some of the “Before Watchmen” titles.
Comic Con just screened a host of fall pilots I’ve seen, among them “Arrow,” “Cult,” “The Following,” “Revolution,” and “666 Park Avenue.” So those could come up.
I’ve recently seen Woody Allen’s “To Rome With Love” and Lynn Shelton’s “Your Sister’s Sister.” SO those could come up too.
And it’s not impossible we’ll talk a bit about my toy poodle and her strained relationship with my poodle-mama.
Candidly, we can’t cram half of this into a two-hour show, but we’re going to give it the old college try.
The radio show airs Saturday 8:05 p.m. to 10 p.m. Pacific Time.
No matter where you are you can listen to the show LIVE by hitting the “Listen Live” button at kernradio.com.
Best of all, you, constant reader, can join this very nerdy conversation.
The toll-free call-in line is:
Call in drunk, as I always do, but watch your language. This is not a podcast. This monster goes out over the air on all 50,000 watts of Southern California’s KERN-AM.
