All good things got to finish some time. Paul and AJ have reached the climax of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman, in its penultimate installment, Vol X: The Kindly Ones. As Morpheus' strict adherence to rules proves to be a cage of his own making, the Furies come down upon his head, wreaking havoc in the Dreaming and tying together many of this epic series' loose ends. Meanwhile, Lucifer plays piano, Rose meets Jack (non-Titanic edition), Matthew lacks pennies, and Lyta's hair drinks most of the water. It's been a hell of a ride.

Next: the boys get in the twisted Christmas spirit with a look back at Scrooged.

Whether you prefer your heroes fluffy and cuddly or coated with a layer of Depression-era dust--not that we're suggesting those things have to be mutually exclusive, of course--you'll find what you're looking for on the new episode of Gobbledygeek. Paul and AJ set their sights on two of the biggest movies of the fall: Big Hero 6, the Disney/Marvel animated film about a boy, his huggable robot, and five of their pals; and Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, starring Matthew McConaughey as a spacefaring daddy. What do these movies have in common? They're both pro-science, they're both pro-love, and AJ and Paul actually agree on both of them. For the most part. Plus, Paul went to freaking Disney World!

Next: for the penultimate Four-Color Flashback episode discussing Neil Gaiman's The Sandman, the boys tackle Vol. IX: The Kindly Ones.

For the first Geek Challenge in many months, Paul has challenged AJ to John Carpenter's 1986 fantasy/martial arts/neo-Western cult classic Big Trouble in Little China. In turn, AJ has challenged Paul to Henri-Georges Clouzot's 1953 "anti-everything" thriller The Wages of Fear. What, pray tell, is the common denominator? They're, uh, they're both about truckers. Tenuous connections are what Geek Challenges thrive on, and this one at least provides some sobering realizations for the boys. What do Paul's reactions to some '50s movies and AJ's reactions to some '80s movies say about them as people and that pesky generational gap? There may be actual answers. Plus, more surprising reactions, this time about Taylor Swift's 1989; and AJ springs #AlexFromTarget on Paul.

Next: in two weeks, the boys will be back discussing two more very different movies, Christopher Nolan's Interstellar and the Disney/Marvel animated film Big Hero 6.

The Deli braintrust--Arlo J. Wiley, Paul Smith, and Eric Sipple--take you behind the curtain to talk a little about what led us here, what the process of putting the book together was, and what you can look forward to in the future. That's right, this isn't the end. It's just the beginning.
