The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of DC's Doomsday Clock series - not so much the story, though, as the "politics" of the title. We talk about the history of Watchmen and the clashes between DC and Alan Moore, and whether or not this new series should have been made. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Police Squad on DVD - freaking genius; also Allegiance by Timothy Zahn

Walking Dead omnibus reread, and some bad puns

Grading comics, and The Giant Spider (Christopher Mihm film)

Catlow (70s western), Black Panther epic collection, Dead by Daylight's new Saw DLC

The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the career of cartoonist Sergio Aragones, whose work was first published in MAD Magazine 55 years ago this month. He's a prolific artist with a glorious sense of humor, and we're big fans of his. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Liz is cold - our cold snaps do not compare to the areas having real problems, but we're not used to it

Snagglepuss, The Tick, Rocko's Modern Life comics, also Image+

Old Battlestar Galactica trades, would love to see an omnibus of them

Dejah Thoris #0, Monstro Mechanica #2, Mighty Crusaders, Codename Knockout

Also Not Brand Echh, which was a little disappointing

And go back to your local comic shop to pick up the new Strangers in Paradise #1 by our pal Terry Moore - we somehow forgot to mention it last week; sorry, Terry :-(

Thanks, Sergio, for all of the laughs you've given us over the years :-)

 

[Note: Avery Schreiber is another one of those whose name is unfamiliar, but once you see his face you're like "oh yeah, that guy, he's been everywhere." Google him ;-) -m]

The Fellowship is pleased to present our latest Casting Call episode. This time we're adding some casting to the 1978 Superman film series (you know, Christopher Reeve and company). We have a list of characters and we've come up with casting ideas for them. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Mikey's Big Bag o' Nothing® - having to be the r-word

A trade-a-day reading group, starting to watch Happy

Bubba Ho-Tep on the big screen

AGFA film this month - Shame of the Jungle (1975)

 

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!)

 

We mention near the end that you may want to have Google or Wikipedia handy while listening; sometimes we get a little obscure since we're talking about actors from the past. (Not if you're driving, though.)

 

Also, if you have any ideas for casting these characters, please share them with us on social media. We'd love to hear from you and discuss them :-)

 

[Note: Aliens was 1986. I can't believe I blanked on that… And I was way off on A Clockwork Orange (1971). -m]

 

As mentioned, not linking every name we talked about. But Les mentioned this list of Superman villains you can check out.

 

Picks for the week of 1/17:

The Family Trade #4 (Image)

The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein. We talk about the story, variations on the story, sci-fi implications, film adaptations and our usual silliness. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Red Dwarf XII - good but not great

Vacation in central Texas, reading comics in the car - Wonder Woman The True Amazon, very impressive

Doctor Radar, Barbarella

Thomas' Big Bag o' Nothing® - taking it easy this week

No major happenings from NYE - just a bit of a tangent on the really cold weather we had

And the Thin Man marathon on TCM

[Note: The Chris Meloni movie Les describes is National Lampoon's Dirty Movie (2011). -m]

If you have not read the original novel, you really should. It's not all that long by modern standards, and it will probably surprise you one way or another :-)

 

Also, hang tight for the little bonus bit after the end of the show ;-)
