On Blood of Kings Episode 30...Kevin, Norm and Mike reviewed the very first issue of the highly anticipated comic book series...Highlander: The American Dream from IDW comics and  an actual PREQUEL to the events that led up to The Gathering in 1985.

On this very special episode of Blood of Kings - Kevin and our very special guests - Kyle Wagner (co-founder of the Fandom Podcast Network), and Mike Sellers (the Immortal Cimoli himself!) take a very in-depth look at the ENTIRE five issue run of Highlander: The American Dream. With three different readers, come three different viewpoints of how this particular comic series affected our very beloved 30 year old movie franchise. 

 
Please note that this is a VERY SPOILER HEAVY review of this series!!! As with all extensions of the Highlander lore, your Blood of Kings team did their homework, discovered many interesting aspects of the story and stumbled upon a few narrative choices that led for some very interesting discussions! And as always, we would LOVE to hear YOUR take on this comic book series and perhaps even read your comments on the air in an upcoming episode of Blood of Kings!

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 50: Norm’s BRAW Trip to SCOTLAND!

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast
Episode 50: Norm’s BRAW Trip to SCOTLAND!
 
Kevin and Norm have reached EPISODE 50! FIFTY!! FIVE-OH!!! And...they have decided to celebrate with a SUPER-DUPER-SIZED feature interview covering Blood of Kings co-host Norman C. Lao’s BRAW trip to Scotland. Kevin began this trend…traveling to the Highlands and visiting so many special shooting locations in Scotland and we covered his trips in detail on Blood of Kings Episodes 7 and 8.
 
Now it is Norman’s turn to recount his (and Carol’s) tales of touring the magical country of Scotland. In his own personal words Norm summarized his feelings thusly, “This was the TRIP OF A LIFETIME! I am so humbled and grateful that I had the opportunity to visit Scotland and especially many of the places that are dear to my heart. This has been such a blessing and a gift and I owe so much of this trip to my lovely Carol who planned and organized a TON in preparation for this trip. The people are amazing, the food is incredible, the WHISKY of course is beyond amazing and plentiful...
 
...but it's the HISTORY that is just beyond words. This country has been wracked with war and strife and conflict and so much of that amidst all this natural beauty and wilderness is just an irony that only can be felt when you close your eyes and reach out with your senses...haunting...and beautiful at the same time. Thank you Scotland for sharing your soul with me. I look forward to seeing you again soon.”
