The Fellowship is pleased to present our preview of the summer movie season. So many movies, so many different genres, and we talk about, well, a lot of them. Some we want to see, and a few we don't. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Thomas' Big Bag o' Nothing™ - working a lot

Getting my kid hooked on Weird Al

One of us went to C2E2 and had a blast - schmoozing with comics people, getting autographs, getting the con crud, and a string of name dropping :-)

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the idea that Wonder Woman could supplant Batman as the "money" character for DC, both in film and in comics. We go into how feasible it might be from a few different angles, a bit on how it could be done, and a couple of sidetracks on Batman and others. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Monty Python Speaks - hadn't actually read this before

Les' Big Bag o' Nothing™ - a quiet week

1050 Years in the Future - Legion of Super Heroes 50th anniversary trade (2008), in anticipation of new LSH coming soon?

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion, assisted by artist/podcaster Eddie Medina, of comics crossovers with toys. This was big in the '80s, so we get a bit nostalgic at times. But we got a few new ones in too, not to mention a couple of tangents. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Catching up on Knights of the Dinner Table and finding in it the Evil Overlord List

Will Save the Galaxy for Food, The Legion of Regrettable Supervillains, and The Monster of Phantom Lake: The Musical

Finished up the art for Kingdom Comics Presents #4 - the Sir Caliburn story

Also reading Sgt Fury Essentials volume 1

Starting to write a new story - ideas come, but the writing part is hard (podcasts as a block breaker?)

GI Joe

Shogun Warriors

Dungeons & Dragons (more game than toy, but lots of comics came from it)

Atari Force

Masters of the Universe

Transformers

ROM Space Knight

Marvel Super Heroes: Secret Wars (it really was based on the toy line)

Ninjago (a Lego property that put out a series of mini graphic novels and other early reader books)

Twisted ToyFare Theater (from the page of ToyFare magazine - fumetti style comics, which is word balloons over photos of toys)

[Note: on the Robot Chicken DC Special tangent, there are three specials. -m]

The Fellowship is pleased to present our conversation with writer Cullen Bunn. His new Image book Regression (with Danny Luckert) comes out on May 10th, and it's a good one in our humble opinions.

Batman The Animated Series - watching through the series for the first time; very cool how subtle the series can be

The Fellowship is pleased to present our Q&A episode, where we answer questions from you, dear listener. The questions for this show involve our "desert island" movie and how we would have handled the Star Wars prequels. Also, more tangents than a trig textbook. And as always, our picks of the week.

TV shows: Ghost Brothers, 3 African-American guys investigating haunted locations, and Cosplay Melee, a cosplay version of Face Off

Double Take comics - a defunct publisher who did some daring stuff with Night of the Living Dead tie-ins (not exactly a must-read) [Yes, it was 1968. The remake, not mentioned here, was 1990. -m]
