The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of comics properties we'd like to see in the theaters or on the small screen. There are a ton of movies and shows out there now, but these are (some of) the ones we'd make if we were talented. Our normal levels of silliness apply. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Comics pile - FCBD stuff was pretty dang good this year, Brothers Dracul is great fun as well, and Knights of the Dinner Table :-)

Rockwall Comic Fest 2018 - a very well organized event, and well attended

Infinity War - the short, non-spoilery version: thumbs up

Our list of comics we'd like to see on either the big or small screen:

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of comics titles that we would recommend to new or lapsed readers. The idea here is not to just list our favorite titles - we're trying to find titles that will draw in folks who don't normally go for comics. We even talk a bit about how that works, and we get a little off track at one point (shocking, right?). And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

The films of Christopher Mihm (at least some of them) are now available on Amazon Prime Video - very entertaining and weird

Free Comic Book Day was a blast; also praise for the Hit-Girl series

Shock Rockets - cool series from a few years back

More FCBD love, in terms of the free comics themselves; also a book called Funny Face!: An Amusing History of Potato Heads, Block Heads, and Magic Whiskers

And the "get off my lawn" tangent of the week :-)

 

Check out our sponsor page! Head to the website and click on the banners for Things From Another World! (Click through the TFAW banner on our site and we get a cut. Thank you!)

 

We hope you find some comics here in our list that can help people get into the wonderful world of comics :-)

 

Note: Thom Zahler's new series is called Warning Label, and here's the Kickstarter link, which runs until June 11

 

Picks for the week of 5/16:

New Challengers #1 (DC)

The Three Stooges Slaptastic Special (American Mythology)

Harley Loves Joker #2 (DC)

Ether: The Copper Golems #1 (Dark Horse)

X-Men Wedding Special #1 (Marvel)

May 6, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of 10 years of Marvel movies. The Infinity War is now upon us, and we're taking a look back at how we got here. A bunch of past, a little bit of present, and a smidgen of possible future. Plus some compare and contrast with that other "cinematic universe." And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Aliens: Dust to Dust #1 and Jeepers Creepers #1 - new books last week that were awesome

Les' Big Bag o' Nothing® - out of pocket, not much time for fun stuff

Saw a certain new movie - no spoilers, because spoilers SUCK!

Also Rick & Morty comics - quick, easy read, very entertaining

Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars and Wait For Your Laugh - two cool documentaries to check out

 

Check out our sponsor page! Head to the website and click on the banners for Things From Another World! (Click through the TFAW banner on our site and we get a cut. Thank you!)

The Fellowship is pleased to present our summer movie preview. Once again we go down the list of movie releases for the summer season and talk about the ones we think will be interesting or funny.

Apr 15, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our suggestions for crossovers starring Valiant's cast of characters. We had a whole lot of fun coming up with pairings between the heroes of the Valiant universe and the heroes of other comics universes (we get a little obscure at times). A great opportunity, too, for our particular brand of silliness. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Analog #1 & Isola #1 - both Image titles, both very exciting first issues

Actually not watching The Walking Dead, apparently; also high praise for Won't You Be My Neighbor?

The Robert Asprin Myth series - great little fantasy novels, easy to consume, lots of pun - er, I mean fun ;-)

Batman: The Dark Knight Detective volume 1 - a cool throwback to the '60s TV series (from the late '80s?)

 

Check out our sponsor page! Head to the website and click on the banners for Things From Another World! (Click through the TFAW banner on our site and we get a cut. Thank you!)

 

We're teaming up Valiant's finest heroes with DC, Marvel, - hell, whoever we can think of! If you think of any cool ones, let us know on social media!

Apr 8, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 80th anniversary of Action Comics #1, the first appearance of Superman. We talk about the character, his origins, and how he's managed to stay relevant throughout the decades. We also wonder about how he might manage to stay relevant for one or two more. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

The Edgar Allan Poe Chronicles - available on Kickstarter until 4/25

Catching up on Superman comics; "explaining" to the SO that binder clips and comics DO NOT go together EVER!

Caught up on TV; also bought the Batman game (from the last KS episode)

Picked up the Hawk & Dove trade from a few weeks ago; also really digging Scooby Doo Team Up

Apr 1, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 50th anniversary of the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. We talk about its roots, its story, and its impact on the culture. It's a very influential movie in a lot of ways, and it's also a bit polarizing, so it's a fun one to discuss. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Lucy Dreaming #1 (Boom! Studios) & 2000AD Prog 2073 - books from last week that I would have reviewed had I had time; both are very cool

Norman trade (Titan) & Punks Not Dead #2 (IDW/Black Crown) - rebellious fun in both cases, though in very different ways

MAD Original Idiots: Will Elder - dude is a genius

Ready Player One - amazing movie, true to the book [It sparked a bit of a tangent, too. -m]

DC's Millenium collection - an awful lot like Secret Invasion, but 30 years earlier, and thanks to Joseph Illidge for recommending it :-)

 

Check out our sponsor page! Head to the website and click on the banners for Things From Another World! (Click through the TFAW banner on our site and we get a cut. Thank you!)

 

If you haven't seen 2001: A Space Odyssey, you really should. And please try to watch it without any expectations :-)

Mar 18, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of stories that didn't quite go the way we had hoped. Some stories have an element or a twist that just doesn't sit right, and we're talking about a few examples that we've come up with. Some are minor, some are major, and some are rant-inducing. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Going through the Previews catalog for May and waving byebye to all the moneys; also organizing the collection

Bad Flashdance joke; Picked up Sonitus and The XII by Alterna Comics - we definitely love us some Alterna :-)

The Complete Captain Marvel by Jim Starlin; also maybe bringing back a seasonal feature on the website???

 

Check out our sponsor page! Head to the website and click on the banners for Things From Another World! (Click through the TFAW banner on our site and we get a cut. Thank you!)

Mar 11, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our list of "amalgam" characters - that is, characters that are combinations of two (or more) existing comics characters, usually from different universes. We had some fun making up weird and wonderful new characters based loosely on some of our favorites, and we hope you will have fun too. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Two books last week that I missed - Frankenstein Alive! Alive! #4 (Bernie Wrightson's last work) and The October Faction: Supernatural Dreams #1

A new convert to the Kentucky Fried Movie, though maybe a bit awkwardly :-) and also Ice Cream Man (very creepy)

Thomas' Big Bag o' Nothing® [Note: the extra time he's talking about? We recorded on Thursday this week instead of our usual Tuesday. I don't recall mentioning that in the show. -m]

Reading one of the Quarry novels by Max Allan Collins - very entertaining

 

Check out our sponsor page! Head to the website and click on the banners for Things From Another World! (Click through the TFAW banner on our site and we get a cut. Thank you!)

 

As promised, the link to our episode about Amalgam Comics for a little background on the project
