In the new episode of AMC's collector (and overall nerd celebration) series Comic Book Men, Ming Chen mixes it up with a customer over a vintage 1980s Pac-Man game. Plus, the guys freak out over a very rare Beatles board game.
But it is the swampy sophomoric jokes during the CBM podcast segments that have me laughing about the episode, airing Sunday, Nov. 6, at midnight.
In a debate about similar slimy super-things, Marvel Comics' Man-Thing vs. DC Comics' Swamp Thing, the Secret Stash team discusses the characters' origins and powers. But then Smith makes a point about Man-Thing that all goofy nerds have thought about at one time or another (and kind of reminds me of that Jason Lee conversation with Stan Lee in Mallrats).
Check out our exclusive clip from the upcoming episode below, and if you dig what you see, tune into Comic Book Men this Sunday night as the unscripted show continues with its sixth season.
