The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion on the 100th birthday of comics legend Jack Kirby. Kirby is at least partly responsible for a huge chunk of what we know of today as Marvel Comics, and he did some groundbreaking work for DC as well. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

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

Les' Big Bag o' Nothing® - quiet weekend, scifi meetup, nothing exciting

Quick trip out of town - glad to be home & recording

Thanks, Jack, for all of the amazing contributions to the many worlds we still know and love today in comics :-)

Shoutouts:

A fond farewell to comedy legend Jerry Lewis, who died this week at age 91 - condolences to his family and friends, and thank you, sir, for all the laughs

[Note: slight hiccup in the audio here; Thomas was saying that he didn't think he'd ever seen any of the films from when Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis actually worked as a team. -m]

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…)

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.

Infinite Seven #6 (Action Lab Danger Zone)

The Chair #2 (Alterna)

Hercules: Wrath of the Heavens #1 (Titan)

We welcome Carl Goad, friend of the show and former host of the SciFiFX podcast, to help us break down the show, discuss the new additions to the show, and speculate on what could happen  down the road.

Real-life vigilante crimefighters (it ties together, listen and you'll see :-)
