Outhouse Pirate Podcast 21 - James Jacobs Interview

Written by ProzacMan AKA Brian Osserman on Tuesday, October 12 2010 and posted in Podcasts

The real hook of James Jacobs' book True Confessions of a Fanboy is that his non fanboy brother/coauthor gives his perspective on events too. Plus NY Comic Con News!

fanwebbookcoverAfter bkthomson, SuperginraiX, sdsichero, and ProzacMan put James Jacobs' Fanboy knowledge to the test, we can honestly say that he is the real deal and was an excellent guest on the Outhouse Pirate Podcast. When I first read the title of his book True Confessions of a Fanboy, my first reaction was "I don't need to read it, I lived it!". Then I learned the real hook of his book is that his non fanboy brother co-authors the book with him. James' brother Johnny Jacobs gives his perspective on the events and collecting habits of his geeky brother's life too. That got me interested. Seeing the dual perspective from the fan boy/collector and from some one that just doesn't get our culture is some thing I haven't seen done before.
