The Fellowship is pleased to present our quarterly look at crowdfunding in comics (and other cool stuff). This is when we go through Kickstarter and find a bunch of exciting projects to recommend to you wonderful people. With our usual silliness, of course. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

The Thrill of Dracula - part of the Dracula Dossier expansion for Nights Black Agents (Pelgrane Press); great for gaming, but also cool just for the movie knowledge [I got it through a Bundle of Holding offering. -m]

Oblivion Song, Aquaman, Deathbed - all really cool stories

Les' Big Bag o' Nothing® - not much going on this week

Marvel Comics: The Untold Story - interesting stories about licensing and titles called Man of Steel :-)

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of stories that didn't quite go the way we had hoped. Some stories have an element or a twist that just doesn't sit right, and we're talking about a few examples that we've come up with. Some are minor, some are major, and some are rant-inducing. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Horror Movie Archive channel on YouTube - cool old horror flicks ranging from the 1930s up to at least the 1980s

Going through the Previews catalog for May and waving byebye to all the moneys; also organizing the collection

Bad Flashdance joke; Picked up Sonitus and The XII by Alterna Comics - we definitely love us some Alterna :-)

The Complete Captain Marvel by Jim Starlin; also maybe bringing back a seasonal feature on the website???

The Fellowship is pleased to present our list of "amalgam" characters - that is, characters that are combinations of two (or more) existing comics characters, usually from different universes. We had some fun making up weird and wonderful new characters based loosely on some of our favorites, and we hope you will have fun too. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Two books last week that I missed - Frankenstein Alive! Alive! #4 (Bernie Wrightson's last work) and The October Faction: Supernatural Dreams #1

A new convert to the Kentucky Fried Movie, though maybe a bit awkwardly :-) and also Ice Cream Man (very creepy)

Thomas' Big Bag o' Nothing® [Note: the extra time he's talking about? We recorded on Thursday this week instead of our usual Tuesday. I don't recall mentioning that in the show. -m]

Reading one of the Quarry novels by Max Allan Collins - very entertaining

 

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!)

 

As promised, the link to our episode about Amalgam Comics for a little background on the project

 

[Note: there's a bit of a hum in the background off and on through the recording. Can't figure out a way to remove it - sorry about that. -m]

Atlas & Axis #3 (Titan)

Infidel #1 (Image)

The Fellowship is pleased to present our list of movies or TV shows (mostly) that we think would translate well to the comics medium. Our choices range from obvious to obscure to downright goofy - you know, kind of like our collective taste in comics. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Do Not Adjust Your Set - one of the precursors of Monty Python's Flying Circus; I found 9 episodes on Amazon Prime (they also have a few eps of At Last The 1948 Show, the other precursor)

The Walking Dead is back, and Liz is less than happy (also a brief appearance by Phil, Liz's hubby - hi Phil!)

Les' Big Bag o' Nothing® - read a few books, nothing to write home about

Star Wars Rebels is ending soon - awesome show, going to miss it

 

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!)

 

Movies/TV shows/other properties we think would make interesting comics:

Nah, you're going to have to listen to get the list. I'm not making it that easy on you ;-)

[Note: Les was partially right - there was the beginning of a comic based on the Illuminatus! Trilogy in the late '80s. It didn't last long. -m]

 

Picks for the week of 3/7:

Oblivion Song #1 (Image)

Actionverse featuring Stray #6 (Action Lab)

Ballad of Sang #1 (Oni Press)

Spider King #1 (IDW)

Highest House #1 (IDW)

Unholy Grail trade (Aftershock)

Green Hornet #1 (Dynamite)

Swords of the Swashbucklers trade (Dynamite)

Honorable Mention: Kamandi by Jack Kirby Omnibus (DC)
