The Fellowship is pleased to present week 3 of Carpenter Month, featuring Prince of Darkness (1987). A priest calls in a group of scientists to study a secret artifact which awakens and begins the apocalypse. Not one of his most celebrated works, to put it mildly. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Trade pile - Elric volume 1; cool and psychedelic

More trade pile - Shadow Year One (Dynamite), fun backstory; DK3 The Master Race, a really good story

Twitch watch - Cuphead, cool new game that's visually striking

 

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!)

 

[Note: We realized during the break that we forgot to do ratings for this movie, but we decided that how we felt about it was already pretty clear :-) -m]

 

Picks for the week of 10/18:

Sherlock Frankenstein and the Legion of Evil #1 (Dark Horse)

Maestros #1 (Image)

Wrapped Up #1 (Lion Forge)

Kill the Minotaur #5 (Image)

John Wick #1 (Dynamite)

Archie: A Celebration of America's Favorite Teenagers (IDW)

Honorable Mention: Curse Words #9 (Image)

Honorable Mention: JLA: The Nail/Another Nail Deluxe Edition (DC)

Honorable Mention: EC Archives: Aces High collection (Dark Horse)

 

Special Mention: We've been doing stuff like this for 7 years now - the Fellowship's first webcast was October 19, 2010. This was back when Ustream was a new concept, and Twitch didn't exist yet. [I think Tom is trying to say we're old, in his own subtle way, as if we need reminding ;-) -m] And a lot of those old live shows are on our YouTube channel for your enjoyment. You know, in case you wanted to know what we looked like five years ago or whatever.

The Fellowship is pleased to present week 2 of Carpenter Month, featuring The Thing (1982). Antarctic researchers have to save the world from an alien doppleganger, and hijinks ensue. A box office bomb now considered one of the best horror films of all time. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Started watching Amazon's The Tick - so far so good

[Skype kind of squicked out on Les here. But it got better after this segment, I promise :-) -m]

Tangent: Superman's Reign - DC's "alternate world" run back in the 90s

Showcase Presents: The Atom - nice little origin collection

TCM [I think] showing 3 Dracula flicks consecutively - it's October, obviously :-) (also it's tangent time)

Facebook games - not so much the "cooperative" ones; Star Trek Timelines in particular; slightly addictive

 

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!)

 

[Also, somewhere early in the discussion Thomas' microphone picked up a weird hum. Not a major deal, but an interesting sound effect had it been intentional :-) -m]

We didn't actually name the actor in the creature suit in the 1951 movie - it was James Arness (Marshal Dillon from Gunsmoke)

 

Picks for the week of 10/11:

Gotham City Garage #1 (DC)

Archie Halloween Spectacular (Archie)

KISS Vampirella #5 (Dynamite)

Dan Dare #1 (Titan)

Oct 1, 2017

The Fellowship is pleased to present the kickoff of our "secret project," which is that we're talking about John Carpenter movies for the month of October. The first installment is The Fog (1980), in which a group of murdered lepers seek revenge. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Mikey's Big Bag 'o Nothing® - family obligations, not much geek stuff

Thomas' Big Bag 'o Nothing® - working is the most fun he had this week

Hercules (1983) - Lou Ferrigno in the titular role; a bad movie's bad movie [Note: Rifftrax has not done this movie, but it's popular on their suggestions page. -m] And then tangent time :-)

 

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!)

Sep 10, 2017

The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 25th anniversary of Batman The Animated Series. This show broke a lot of ground, jumpstarting Warner animation and cementing Batman (and comics in general) in mainstream culture. And as always, our picks of the week.

Half Price Books haul - two locations, too many books :-)

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

Eddie Medina, who gets a shoutout for not being on this week's show (just kidding, of course - we asked him to join us, but he wasn't able to do so this week. Perhaps next time…)

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.
