The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the repercussions of the deal in which Disney is buying out most of Fox. There are a ton of moving parts in this, and a lot of potential for geek stuff to be affected, so we chatted about some of the possibilities. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

100 Years of Horror (Amazon Prime) - very cool documentary series once you get past the terrible opening titles

Negative Space (Dark Horse), Here's Negan, getting ready for the holidays

Harley Quinn 25th Anniversary book, Batman: Hush

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (what, a movie came out this week?), The Chair (the film from the Alterna comic), Logan

[Note: Thomas' microphone was doing that weird thing to his voice again. It did it once before during recording, but hasn't done it again since, so we didn't have any way to fix it. We're still not even sure it's his microphone, but we'll try to pin it down. Mostly it just makes him sound a bit autotuned. But anyway, sorry about that. -m]

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the "Death of Superman" story arc on its 25th anniversary.

Even more trade pile - two Superman trades, The Phantom Zone & Tales From The Phantom Zone

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of John Carpenter's Big Trouble in Little China. After doing some of the darker Carpenter movies in October, we wanted to cover some lighter fare (that and movie discussions are, let's face it, fun). Our usual hijinks ensue, of course. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Murder Dice - a D&D actual play podcast that you should all check out

A Very Bad Guild - webseries centered (loosely) on DDO (Dungeons & Dragons Online) hosted by Dirty William that you should also check out

Holiday shopping, family visiting for the holiday (and a tangent)

Showcase Presents: Super Friends - interesting read, especially when it poked fun at Marvel

The Heretic - a cool crime story from a few years back

Movie time - Murder on the Orient Express, Justice League, AGFA at the Alamo (The Kentucky Fried Movie)

Marvel's Epic Collections - Iron Man: The Enemy Within
