The Fellowship is pleased to present a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the film Night of the Living Dead. Arguably the king of all indie films, this was a truly groundbreaking horror film in so many ways. We all have lots of opinions on this one, and we add our normal weirdness, as well as our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Catching up on comics - Dark Ark, Brothers Dracul, DC 100-Page Giants

Squee's Wonderful Big Giant Book of Unspeakable Horrors - from Jhonen Vasquez's Johnny the Homicidal Maniac comics (and a tangent on secrets)

Out of town over the weekend - a nice trip

Legion of Super Heroes: The Silver Age vol 1 - good overall, but some questionable content; also RetroFan magazine, from TwoMorrows Publishing; also Master of the World (1961) with Vincent Price & Charles Bronson

 

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!)

 

50 years of Night of the Living Dead - an indie film, a cult classic, and the start of a long-running cultural obsession with zombies (even if they may not really be zombies)

[Note: when we rated the movie, I neglected to give my rating. I give it 8 out of 10. :-) -m]

 

Picks for the week of 9/5:

Marvel Knights Black Panther collection (Marvel)

Jinxworld Sampler #1 (DC)

The Fellowship is pleased to present a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Batman story arc entitled A Death in the Family. It was a controversial one, with a new concept in reader participation and a slightly darker take on the Joker. There's a lot to cover on this one, and we add our usual flair, as well as our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Catching up on Detective, Strangers in Paradise XXV, Dungeons & Dragons Evil at Baldur's Gate - all fun series

Not reading, but catching up on TV - The Flash & Orange is the New Black, with Gotham in the on-deck circle

Where We Live (the fundraiser comic for the Las Vegas Shooting victims), Fairest (the Fables spinoff)

Aug 19, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present a celebration of the 40th anniversary of the original Battlestar Galactica TV series. It didn't last long, and the sequels were never quite as solid, but it still broke some ground in sci-fi television. Lots of reminiscing and our usual odd behavior, as well as our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

[Apologies for the Skype twitching at the beginning. It goes away pretty quick, I promise :-) -m]

Mikey's Big Bag 'o Nothing® - super busy this weekend, big pile of comics to wade through soon

New Chaykin book Hey Kids! Comics! - interesting reading

8/14 is the anniversary of the release of Rocky Horror Picture Show (and a little Heavy Metal film tangent too)

Murder on the Orient Express (2017) - pretty good remake, great cast, maybe a "sequel" on the way?

 

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!)

 

40 years of Battlestar Galactica - it may not have been on the air for long, but it had a lot of staying power otherwise

Also a bit of Glen A. Larson love - that guy created a ton of shows in the late '70s/early '80s

 

Picks for the week of 8/22:

Batman: Kings of Fear #1 (DC)

Twelve Devils Dancing #2 (Action Lab Danger Zone)

Punisher #1 (Marvel)

The Fellowship is pleased to present a pair of graphic novel reviews. This week we read two graphic novels so that we could review and discuss them for your entertainment.

The Fellowship is pleased to present another Casting Call episode. This time we're looking into the 1977 Spider-man live-action TV series, which lasted parts of two seasons. We've got some Spidey characters picked out, and we're choosing who we think should play those roles (as much from the time period as possible). Much fun was had by all, with a big dose of our normal weirdness, as well as our usual picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Missouri Swagger - video podcast on YouTube starring Cullen Bunn & Dennis Hopeless (spinoff of our show? You decide…)

Read a bunch of comics, but not willing to report (didn't like them) - shoot Liz some Marvel recommendations on Twitter @neumann_l  :-)

Les checked out the recent Sitcomics books - impressed with the quality

Busy working on background stuff for the podcast, so no comics this week (other than bagging & boarding)

 

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!)

 

Casting Call for the 1977 Spider-man live-action series

We sure do have a blast with these, and we hope you do too (even if we get pretty danged obscure with some of the names *cough* Robert Walden *cough* Richard Lynch *cough*)

Note: the D'Onofrio movie Les refers to is The Whole Wide World (1996)

Another Note: Fred Grandy served in the House from 1987-1995.

 

Picks for the week of 8/8:

Fantastic Four #1 (Marvel)

Windhaven GN (Bantam)

Black Badge #1 (BOOM! Studios)

Maestros #7 (Image)

Jul 29, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of what might have happened if National Comics Publications (later DC Comics) had bought out Timely Comics (later Marvel Comics) back in the 1940s. This led to a wild conversation spanning several decades of alternate history, including our standard strange behavior, as well as our usual picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Finished Hellboy Omnibus 1, started Black Magick v2, no more Doctor Who

Stowaway to the Stars (Byrne)

North Texas Comic Book Show - good show

The Culling on Twitch - what a story :-)

 

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!)

 

A fun what-if scenario, even if one of us managed to take it dark :-)

And let us know what you think about these ideas - we'd love to hear your feedback!

 

Picks for the week of 8/1:

Eclipse #9 (Image)

Midnight Tiger: Stronger #1 (Action Lab) [Note: we learned after recording that this title will only be available on ComiXology for now. Still should be a good one, though :-) -m]

Jul 22, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the rogue's gallery, both the concept itself and naming some of our favorites. It has been argued that a hero is defined by their villains, and dang it, there are some really cool bad guys out there. Plenty of our usual silliness this week, and as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Doctor Who on Twitch - #5 is good, but his companions are annoying, #6 gets a bad rap, suffered from terrible writing

Also Hellboy Omnibus volume 1 - greatness

Secret project reading - soon ;-)

The House With a Clock In Its Walls - the book is really good, the movie comes out soon

Jigsaw (not thrilled), The Doobie Brothers: Let The Music Play (enjoyable), Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind (good but bittersweet) [Note: a bit of a sound glitch in here. Sorry. -m]

So many villains - it feels like we only scratched the surface :-)

 

Picks for the week of 7/25:

Beach Blanket Bad Guys Special (DC)

Britannia: Lost Eagles of Rome #1 (Valiant)

Eden #1 (Alterna)

Midway: The Battle That Changed The Pacific War GN (Monroe Publications)

Jul 8, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our presentation of ideas for crossovers between comic book characters and other, non-comic folks from (mostly) TV shows. Sort of in the vein of DC's recent crossovers with Hanna-Barbera characters, only with our signature flair (combining our particular tastes in these things, which comes across as weird at times). And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Doctor Who on Twitch - Baker is just so different as the Doctor

Also secret projects ;-)

Void Trip trade, Twilight trade (not that one)

Sitcomics books - very cool stuff; check them out at sitcomics.net

 

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!)

 

Once we stopped ripping and started riffing, much fun was had by all :-)

 

Picks for the week of 7/11:

Relay #1 (Aftershock)

Little Girl #1 (Devils Due Publishing)

Twelve Devils Dancing #1 (Action Lab Danger Zone)

Xena #6 (Dynamite)

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the current state of the comics industry. We start with a couple of news bites from recent weeks, and off we go down the rabbit hole of the comics world.

What we're up to this week:

2000AD Sci-Fi Special (2000AD) & Rivers of London: Water Weed (Titan)

80 Years of Superman, pre-Wedding stuff, and other IRL bidness
