The Fellowship is pleased to present our reminiscences about the career of Bernie Wrightson, who was taken from us this week by brain cancer. He had a marvelous career as an artist who could transcend genre, and he was also respected and loved by his fellow creators. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Catching up on Knights of the Dinner Table (I got behind)

Found some recent Heavy Metal mags with a Donny Cates story in them

Also found a movie called All Stars (2014) about youth sports - ah, memories

Finally saw Star Trek Beyond - an okay movie with some problems

Also Robert Osborne tribute on TCM - his interviews were something that our humble show can only aspire to

The Fellowship is pleased to present our reminiscences about the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series, which premiered 20 years ago this week. It ran for seven seasons, spawned a five-year spinoff, and put both supernatural horror and teen drama on the map. We also talk about the 1992 movie a bit, and share some favorite moments from the show. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Bought IDW's Humble Bundle - a ton of comics with the proceeds going to charity [in this case, split between Traveling Stories and the CBLDF. -m]

Playing Heroclix and having a great time

Catching up on reading - digging Superman Reborn

And introduced some new readers to Valiant's Faith title in the hopes of maybe catching the kid too

[Note: iTunes didn't begin operating until 2003, with movie rentals starting in 2008. -m]

[Note: The movie grossed $16m from a $7m budget, and rates at 5.6 out of 10 on IMDB. So not terribly successful. And rated PG-13. -m]

[Note: the animated series was started in 2002, but never got off the ground. I hear there may be some stuff on YouTube :-) -m]

[Note: Buffy and Angel are available to stream on Netflix. -m]
