Hosted by Nathaniel MacDonald and Danny Djeljosevic (that's me) and supported by various jokers and guests, Comics You Can Dance To is devoted to discussing cool comics, pop culture nonsense and hopefully introducing you to some awesome music along the way.
Whoa, this week we have a live episode! That is to say, we recorded the podcast with a guest that wasn't trapped inside a laptop. Artist, comicker and all-around nice guy Phil McAndrew is a San Diego local, so we had an adult lunch at SD's very own Small Bar followed by recording at a nearby coffee shop where we talked about his work, artists we like, his Cartoon Network project and his upcoming book of comics from Grimalkin Press. Also, we coined the phrase "Canadian treasure."

- Also, who wants to help us start a comics awards show that gives out championship belts instead of statues?
- So, at the end I kind of spitball ideas about Spider-Man being inspired by luchadores in the Andrew Garfield reboot. It's important to note that that movie was NOT out yet when we had this conversation, so it's eerily prophetic, like a Tupac album.
