For two years, Comixstravaganza, in partnership with GraphicPolicy.com has brought you weekly live stream comic news, reviews, and pop culture views. However, all good things must come to an end. Kind of. Beginning in Feb 2017, Comixstravaganza will become Tales From The Flip-Side Too and will again star “Big Daddy Cool” John Pyka in a series of three weekly live stream programs!
In the announcement, Pyka said:
This is an opportunity to rebrand our programming and tie more directly into the existing “Big Daddy Cool” brand equity. With the release of the book series Tales From The Flip-Side we realized that we were missing a perfect branding opportunity” added Pyka, “and after a long hiatus we decided to start fresh as part of the BDC Entertainment Rebirth project.
Things kick off February 6th at 9 PM EST/8 PM CST with Tales From The Flip-Side: The Roll ‘n Go Game Review Show sponsored by Go! Games and Calendars retail outlets!
Pyka will launch the new Tales From The Flip-Side video and podcast series that will include several “micro shows” that showcase the “flip-side” of the retro culturalist.
In addition to the Roll ‘n Go show, Tales From The Flip-Side will also absorb Comixstravaganza as a weekly micro show, as well as the return of the Dee & Johnny Super Show in March.
Fans may recall that Pyka took an extended hiatus to recover from an injury that severely impacted his ability to appear on stage or on screen. With that challenge behind, there is a new energy and commitment to provide the best quality programming possible. The new series of Tales From The Flip-Side shows will include live performances at comic cons and theaters, and weekly taped and live shows distributed across multiple platforms. Weekly live stream shows will be streamed live via our partner at GraphicPolicy.com, with additional taped programs distributed via YouTube and Vimeo. With the change come a renewed commitment to live stream more live shows and events, including BDC’s pledge to “leave no fan behind” and stream live from conventions and festivals when possible. Each live steam show will also be followed by a Facebook live video to allow audience interaction and follow-up. Additionally, Pyka will launch a supporting Tales From The Flip-Side Too podcast that will allow he and the team to connect with those fans who consumer pop culture programming via podcasts. The intended goal is to create a unified programming brand that crosses platforms and genres.
In anticipation of the new direction, John is currently seeking additional co-hosts and guests to appear, joining long time co-host Dee Bartee, who will also return. Anyone interested in becoming a co-host or being a special guest can contact John Pyka at firstname.lastname@example.org.
