Throw on some gun glasses and sunscreen as we celebrate the arrival of summer. We welcome Todd Tochioka of SnugComics.com to the show as we remember our favorite summer movies in this week’s Retro Roundtable. Whether they were made and marketed as summer movies, or they just remind you personally of summer, we remember the best and worst of the films that make us feel like spending a day at the beach.
 
Then we turn our attention to Todd to discuss Kindred Homecomings, his comic available on SnugComics.com. The comic is about Jane Borchardt, a hard working actress living in Los Angeles, CA. The daily grind can get exhausting after a while, so when she unexpectedly receives word that she’s inherited her estranged grandmother’s coastal property in the sleepy area of Solano County, she packs her weekend bag and heads north up the Pacific Coast Highway.
 
Although the house is not in livable condition, Jane decides to clean and fix up what she can in order to sell the property as soon as possible. At night, there are strange noises coming from within the walls, and with the help of the county sherriff, Malinda Claire, Jane soon discovers it’s something much more terrifying than rats in the walls.
 
Featuring 2017 ICFFA Actress of the Year, Jamie Bernatte (@jamiebernadette), as Jane Borchardt and the Unwritable Rant podcast’s Juliette Miranda (@morningneurosis) as Sheriff Malinda Claire, Kindred Homecomings, will be released as a full-color three-issue limited comic book series.  Head over to Snug Comics to pre-order your copy and check out a few pages from the book as well!
