The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion on how we read comics. We're looking at it in terms of physical spaces and rituals/habits surrounding our favorite pastime. And no promises, but we might just wander off topic a bit. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Mikey's Big Bag o' NothingĀ® - kind of under the weather this week

Out at the racetrack (Texas Motor Speedway) having a blast playing with actual race cars

The Towering Inferno - doesn't age well, especially in terms of storytelling

The Complete Jim Starlin Warlock trade - fun to check out the beginnings of Marvel's space opera stories

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion on the career and the impact of Adam West to the geek community. For an actor who was essentially typecast, he managed to have a very long and diverse career, both embracing Batman and creating other memorable characters along the way. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

I Am Your Father - documentary about Dave Prowse and his uncomfortable relationship with Star Wars (a good if sad watch)

Why Horror? - Showtime documentary about the phenomenon of horror media (an interesting look at horror)

RPGs on Facebook groups - the modern version of message boards and/or play by mail (with a quick mention of Roll20)
