The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the MoviePass concept.

What we're up to this week:

Trade Pile - Cyrus Perkins and the Haunted Taxi Cab (Action Lab) - very likeable ghost story/crime story from a couple of years ago

More Trade Pile - Alien Legion book from 2015, Fire by Brian Michael Bendis, Sherlock Holmes Crime Alleys (Dark Horse)

More More Trade Pile - The Greatest Villains of the Fantastic Four - here's a decent image of the cover in question

[Apparently we all read comics this week. Go figure, right? :-) -m]

Aug 27, 2017

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion on the 100th birthday of comics legend Jack Kirby. Kirby is at least partly responsible for a huge chunk of what we know of today as Marvel Comics, and he did some groundbreaking work for DC as well. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Begun research for a future "secret project" - watching some cool movies

Les' Big Bag o' Nothing® - quiet weekend, scifi meetup, nothing exciting

Quick trip out of town - glad to be home & recording

Aug 20, 2017

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of an article predicting the death of comics (specifically Marvel comics). We address it from different angles, such as financial considerations and how our fandom informs our perspective. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

The Third QI Book of General Ignorance - a book of questions debunked by the QI elves, and a lot of fun for a geek like me

Batman and Harley Quinn - recommended; it has some elements we haven't seen much in animated Batman

Thomas' Big Bag o' Nothing® - busy week, didn't feel like doing much

The Fellowship is pleased to present our Casting Call for the 1977 Wonder Woman TV series. This is where we list some new characters for a series and then cast them. It gives us a chance to geek out on some stars of the past. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Mikey's Big Bag o' Nothing® - too much family stuff going on this week

Catching up on crime comics - Loose Ends, Bankshot, Crosswind

Sniglets - found some of the books and reread them; funny stuff

 

Check out our sponsor page! Head to the website and click on the banners for Things From Another World and Make Mine Indie! (Click through the TFAW banner on our site and we get a cut. And check out tons of great indie comics in the MMIndie catalog. And thank you!)

 

There's kind of too many things to list out here if I tried, so instead I'll just encourage you to listen for yourselves. You might have to Google some of our more obscure choices (hell, I had to), so be safe if you listen while driving :-)

 

Notes:

The guy who played Green Arrow on Smallville was Justin Hartley.

I momentarily confused Michael Dunn and David Rappaport - Dunn was the one on Star Trek TOS, not Rappaport.

Emma Thompson did indeed attend Cambridge University, and was a member of the Footlights troupe.

We welcome Carl Goad, friend of the show and former host of the SciFiFX podcast, to help us break down the show, discuss the new additions to the show, and speculate on what could happen  down the road.

Jul 30, 2017

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion about the news that came out of this year's San Diego Comic Con. It's the premier event of the year in the geek world, and this year was just as busy as ever, with comics, TV, movies and anything else you can think of. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Deadlands game - general consensus is that the setting is cool, but the system is excessively complicated (sorry, Deadlands creators)

Comic series One-Hit Wonder (Image) - cool crime comic from 2015

Also Marvelman Family's Finest (Marvel) - a different take on supers

Last Girl Standing (2015 movie) - good premise, weak execution, but overall pretty good little horror flick (sparking a small tangent)

 

Check out our sponsor page! Head to the website and click on the banners for Things From Another World and Make Mine Indie! (Click through the TFAW banner on our site and we get a cut. And check out tons of great indie comics in the MMIndie catalog. And thank you!)

And our episode where Thomas chose Dr Doom as worthy of his own title was episode 15, if you'd like to check it out

Jul 23, 2017

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion about comic strips. We talk about several of our favorites from childhood, some of which are still around today (though not necessarily in a daily newspaper). And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Movie Sign with the Mads - a cool movie podcast starring Dr. Forrester (Trace Beaulieu) and TV's Frank (Frank Conniff) of MST3K fame

The Blair Witch (2016) - overall an okay movie, but nothing surprising (a little too close to the original)

And we tangent off into other horror movies (a bit)

[Les is out on vacation this week. -m]

Peanuts

Calvin & Hobbes

Bizarro

The Far Side

Family Circus

Foxtrot

Life in Hell

Pearls Before Swine

Dilbert
