The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 50th anniversary of Monty Python's Flying Circus. It's actually hard to list all of the different ways this show broke new ground. And it also happens to be some seriously funny stuff. We talk about the history, the comedy, the censors, the spam, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual silly walks, as well as our picks of the week.
 
Announcements:
Come hang out with us! - we have monthly meetups on the 2nd Saturday at our local comic shop (A Galaxy Called Dallas in Garland, TX); details on Facebook & Twitter to come soon
 
 
What we're up to this week:
Still working on homework for episodes; also went to a G-league basketball game with family
Organizing comics; reading The Dreaming; prepping for tonight's show
Read a few books, nothing special
Podcast stuff and actual paid work
And Liz met her new niece 🙂

Soooooo many Python quotes... 🙂
[Note: We mentioned KERA general manager Bob Wilson (even if we couldn't remember his first name), but programming manager Ron Devillier was also key in bringing Flying Circus to the states. -m]
[Another note: Monty Python Sings was released in December 1989, so extremely early '90s, right? 😉 -m]

The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 85th anniversary of Flash Gordon. It started out as a comic strip meant to compete with Buck Rogers, and stuck around in the funny papers for decades. It also crossed media, with movie serials, a radio show, and both live and animated TV series over the years. We even talk civilly about the 1980 film (somehow). Plus our standard silliness, as well as our picks of the week.
 
Announcements:
Come hang out with us! - we'll be starting monthly meetups in January at our local comic shop (A Galaxy Called Dallas in Garland, TX); details on Facebook & Twitter to come soon (first one is January 12th at 7pm)
 
What we're up to this week:
Prepping for a couple of future episodes 🙂; also picked up Super Suckers and Startup, two Sitcomics titles, and loved them
[and the promised link, www.sitcomics.net]
Vacation & reading - DC Nuclear Winter special, among others [kind of a tangent on the Branch Davidian compound]
Reading - the recent King Features collection, among others; also binged the Thin Man movies on TCM
Reading & the Twilight Zone marathon on Syfy

Dec 23, 2018
The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the year 2018. We had a lot of fun bringing stuff to you, and we hope you did too. So this week we just talked about some of the cool things we remember from this past year. We may or may not get a little ranty, so fair warning 🙂. Plus plenty of silliness to go around.
 
What we're up to this week:
Big Bag o' Nothing - sick over the weekend (and ever since)
Not much reading, but picked up a big stack of comics at the shop 🙂
Went to a screening of Superman: The Movie at a nearby high school, charity event for Christopher Reeve's foundation
Found a copy of the X-Men: The Hidden Years trade (out of print, hard to find); gathered a donation of toys for kids for Christmas, had an adventure dropping them off; Last Year: The Nightmare has dropped (new horror game)
 
Announcements at the end of the show, so keep listening 🙂 
 
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 comics world gave us a bit of controversy this year, to say the least. But was it a good year for comics? You'll just have to listen 🙂 
 
No picks for the week of 12/26:
There's just nothing coming out. (OK, there are a few things, so go check them out. But not enough for us to choose picks from.)
 
Announcements:
No new episode from us next week - we'll be back and ready to go in 2019
Come hang out with us! - we'll be starting monthly meetups in January at our local comic shop (A Galaxy Called Dallas in Garland, TX); details on Facebook & Twitter to come soon (first one is January 12th at 7pm)

Dec 16, 2018
The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 25th anniversary of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. It was a strong kick-off for Warner's DC animation, and they've been going strong ever since. We get into this one pretty deep, and we talk about some upcoming animated features too. Plus our usual oddness, as well as our picks of the week.
 
What we're up to this week:
Busy week, but I started Criminal Macabre Omnibus 1
Walking around like "a penguin with ghetto booty" - so a Big Bag o' Nothing [Liz threw out her back last week 😞 -m]
A December to Dismember movie event (Christmas-themed horror movies & shorts); new Christopher Mihm movie Guns of the Apocalypse is out now [Avengers 4 trailer/NASA tangent]
Streaming movies on Twitch - Birdemic, MST3K 10 Year Anniversary show, several others; also an Avengers Epic Collection [callback to our Kree-Skrull War episode]
 
Announcements at the end of the show, so keep listening 🙂

There are those who argue that this film is the best Batman movie ever made. It's certainly hard to argue against that point 🙂

Dec 9, 2018
The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 40th anniversary of Superman: The Movie. It's still widely considered the best superhero movie, and the story of its making is probably more dramatic than the film itself. We've got a ton of info and opinion here, and our usual funny business, as well as our picks of the week.
 
What we're up to this week:
No Liz this week - get better soon 🙂
No comics, but an NBA game (which the kid enjoyed)
Reading - Liberty Meadows vol 2, DC Nuclear Winter issue, Burroughs anthology
Big Bag o' Nothing - busy with not-fun stuff
 
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!)
 
So much drama in the making of this movie, it's scary. Some tangents on the sequels, too, but given the diversity there, it's not surprising 🙂 
 
Picks for the week of 12/12:
Vampirella vs Re-Animator #1 (Dynamite)
Planet of the Apes: The Simian Age one-shot (BOOM! Studios)
Sasquatch Detective #1 (DC)
Blackwood trade (Dark Horse)
Fantastic Four Wedding Special #1 (Marvel)
Mega Ghost #1 (Albatross Funnybooks)
The Quantum Age #5 (Dark Horse)
Punisher Epic Collection: Circle of Blood (Marvel)
Jingle Belle: The Homemades' Tale one-shot (IDW)
 
Shoutouts:

Dec 2, 2018
The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 15th anniversary of the TV show Most Extreme Elimination Challenge (MXC) and the 30th anniversary of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K). Two completely different, yet equally groundbreaking shows, and both were funny as hell. We've got quite a range of opinions on these two, and we sprinkle in our typical antics, as well as our picks of the week.
 
What we're up to this week:
Hellboy Omnibus, a Postal trade, a Kill or Be Killed trade (dark but awesome comics)
Another local convention (this one in Irving) - a couple of cool panels (Steranko, voice actors)
Road trip and dog rescue stuff instead of reading comics [way more important, too, as we all pointed out - kudos to Liz for taking on that kind of volunteer work 🙂 -m]
Batman: The Golden Age collection, Walt Simonson's Battlestar Galactica Artist Edition (beautiful)
 
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!)
 
15 years of MXC! 30 years of MST! So much fun TV in the '80s and '90s. That's right, kids, this is what we did in high school and college rather than go to class 😉 
[The show Les mentioned, the weird one from Tulsa, was Dr. Mazeppa Pompazoidi's Uncanny Film Festival and Camp Meeting, hosted by Gailard Sartain. You might not know the name, but you've seen him (yet another of our infamous "oh yeah, that guy" folks). See the link and you'll get it. -m]
 
Picks for the week of 12/5:
Barbarella Holiday Special (Dynamite)
Wizard Beach #1 (BOOM! Studios)
Hack/Slash vs Chaos! #1 (Dynamite)
Prodigy #1 (Image)
Breakneck #1 (Titan/Hard Case)
The Freeze #1 (Image)
The Last Siege #7 (Image)
Shazam #1 (DC)
Honorable Mention: Deadpool #7 (Marvel) - Deadpool vs Santa Claus!

Nov 25, 2018
The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 35th anniversary of the film A Christmas Story. This movie has become a TV staple in the last 15 years, and its popularity has risen quickly over that time. And it's getting to be "that time of year" too, right? We've got some opinions and some stories, and we add our normal abnormality, as well as our picks of the week.
 
What we're up to this week:
Big Bag o' Nothing - busy week, still reading Hellboy (omnibuses are big)
Avoiding Christmas music and getting ready for Black Friday sales [this may be more of a tangent than a report, I'm not sure 🙂]
Local comics convention - the small ones are a lot of fun [CA wildfire tangent]
Comics - a new Epic Collection (X-Men) which includes a story by Jerry Siegel
 
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!)
 
A Christmas Story is an amazing story of how the blossoming home video market and careful (or lucky) cable TV placement can turn a movie into an "instant" classic. It helps that it's a very funny movie, of course 🙂 
 
Picks for the week of 11/28:
Infinity Wars: Arachknight #2 (Marvel)
Punchline #2 (Antarctic Press)
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Soul of the Dragon GN (BOOM! Studios)
Hellboy and the BPRD 1956 #1 (Dark Horse)
Aquaman: The Search for Mera collection (DC)
Marvel Action: Spider-Man #1 (IDW)

Nov 18, 2018
The Fellowship is saddened to present our tribute to the life and career of Stan Lee, who left us this week. Comics would simply not be what they are without him, and he will be deeply missed by the fans and the industry. We all have our own take on The Man, and we add our usual odd behavior (maybe a little less than normal), as well as our picks of the week.
 
What we're up to this week:
Thomas' Big Bag o' Nothing - under the weather, still not feeling great, sorry for any weird noises [Nyquil tangent]
Hellboy omnibuses (very cool), The Story Behind book (yay Emily 🙂) [podcast tangent]
Bill the Boy Wonder (recent bio comic on Bill Finger), Die Kitty Die trade
Old Doc Savage novels
 
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!)
 
Our deepest condolences to Stan's family, friends, and all of the fans around the world. There are many of us, and we will certainly miss him. Thank you, Stan, for everything.
 
Also, props to the NFL Network for their tribute to Stan 🙂
 
And Happy Thanksgiving to all of you who celebrate it!
 
Picks for the week of 11/21:
Bettie Page #1 (Dynamite)
American Carnage #1 (DC/Vertigo)
Brat Pack collection (IDW)

The Fellowship is pleased to present our review and discussion of the Kree-Skrull War. We read Avengers issues 89-97, first published in 1971-72, which may have some impact on the upcoming Captain Marvel movie. And we're breaking it down here for you, dear listeners. We have opinions (shocking, right?), and we add our usual mayhem, as well as our picks of the week.
 
What we're up to this week:
Comics - finished Shadows On The Grave, started Corpus (a Kickstarter collection of medical stories), read some of the Halloween Comic Fest books (all awesome)
More comics - Die Die Die, Stranger Things (yep, it's a comic), The Lollipop Kids, Batman The Maxx
Movies - MST3K tour (lots of fun), this month's AGFA film The Garbage Pail Kids (delightfully horrible)
Golden Age Wonder Woman collection, Last Year: The Nightmare beta streaming on Twitch
 
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!)
 
It will be interesting to see how much (if any) of this classic story gets used in the new movie. It's essentially all backstory for the "modern" Captain, so we'll see 🙂
Oh, and the promised link (at least to the first issue, 89)
 
Picks for the week of 11/14:
Plastic Man #6 (DC)
William Gibson's Alien 3 #1 (Dark Horse)
Faith Deluxe Edition Vol 1 hardcover (Valiant)
Firefly #1 (BOOM! Studios)

The Fellowship is pleased to present another Casting Call episode. This time we got creative, casting a New Gods series in 1995 (not real, obviously). We get a kick out of doing these; it lets us mess around with the property as well as surprise each other. Some fun and interesting casting choices, and we add our usual weird ideas, as well as our picks of the week.
 
What we're up to this week:
Comics - Regression vol 1, Shadows On The Grave
More of the 31 days of horror, more of the "ziplock" bags of comics (Domino, Die Die Die, Batman Sins of the Father)
At the local comic shop for Halloween Comic Fest on Saturday, reread Batman Animated
More Halloween Comic Fest (hope you all went and enjoyed), Twitch.tv channel PDCinema 
[Note: I looked it up, and all they took from the 1955 version of The Fast and The Furious was the title 😉 -m]
 
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!)

Empty Man #1 (BOOM! Studios)
