The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of some of the highlights of 2016 from a comics perspective. We didn't want to do a formal "best of" list, but we did want to share some of the big impacts on us this year. And as always, our picks of the week.

The PodernFamily podcast feed - a sampling of PF podcasters celebrating the first anniversary of #PodernFamily

Taking the wife to a Die Hard "movie party"

Dec 4, 2016

The Fellowship is pleased to present our ideas on who we would place in Marvel's "Trinity." Social media feedback (thanks to all who responded) were swayed by the movies, and we tried to steer it back to the comics (as we often do). Oh, and Star Wars tangent, anyone? And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Blu-ray extras for the third Hobbit movie (not necessarily the movie, though)

The Black Monday Murders first arc - genius in every way

Spookhouse (Eric Powell) and Motor Girl (Terry Moore)

The revamping of our website and a new logo - coming in January :-)

Teen Titans omnibus

Marvel's Trinity: Link to Tom's editorial from back in 2011

 

And of course, leave it to us to find a way to list more than three options each for a "trinity"…

 

[Also, a brief apology for sound quality; the new microphone I got crapped out spectacularly last week (hence the missing show). I had to go back to the old one this week, so I sound like I'm 10 feet back from it. Another new one will be here in time for next week's recording. Thanks for your patience.]

 

Picks for the week of 12/7:

Norman: The First Slash #1

The Circle #1

Atomic Robo and the Temple of Od #5

The Fellowship regrets to tell you that we will not be able to release an episode this week. We had a tech problem which resulted in the total loss of the recording, and with the holiday this week we were unable to schedule a backup recording session. But please do not despair! We will return next week with another exciting episode, and if you need a fix please feel free to check out one of our previous shows (like the Terry Moore interview - we're rather proud of that one). And I did manage to salvage our picks of the week for your entertainment, listed below.

Nov 20, 2016

The Fellowship is pleased to present a discussion of comics properties that were killed by their forays into other media (movies & TV). We sidetrack a little (okay, a lot) on the new Dirk Gently series, the new Bone movie, and nearly everything else. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Big stack of trades to read (woohoo!)

Catching up on TV shows - Scream Queens, Dirk Gently, The New Howdy Doody Show (which is pretty annoying)

More teasing of secret projects

Teen Titans Omnibus (including primo teen lingo from the 50s & 60s)

[Note- the character in the new Dirk Gently show is Todd; the one in the book is Richard]

 

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!)

 

Comic titles we listed that were killed by other media (or something like that):

Howard the Duck

Fantastic Four

Classic Battlestar Galactica (kind of in reverse)

X-Men (from two different angles)

The Punisher

Jonah Hex

Doctor Strange (looking into the future a bit, I admit)

Speed Racer & Thunderbirds

[Note- we really didn't plan to pick on Marvel so hard with this. It just kind of worked out that way. Sorry, Marvel; we still love you, and if you want to come on the show for a rebuttal, you're always welcome :-) ]

 

[Note- Jeff Smith's Bone won an absolute embarrassment of Harvey and Eisner awards during its run, and was a consistent New York Times bestseller.]

 

Picks for the week of 11/23:

Athena Voltaire and the Volcano Goddess #1

The Black Monday Murders #4

Peepland #2

Super Powers #1

Hot Damn trade

The Great Divide #3

 

Happy (American) Thanksgiving, everyone :-)

Nov 13, 2016

The Fellowship is pleased to present our chat about Atlas/Seaboard Comics, which tried to publish comics for about a year and a half in the mid '70s. They did some interesting things with some well-known creators, but just didn't get the sales to keep it going. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Shiny new Blu-ray copy of Red Dwarf XI

Brazos County STX Comic Con 2016 (in Bryan, TX) & meeting Howard Chaykin

Also pining for Netflix (despite it being available for sale)

Also shoutout to local artist Thomas Branch

Catching up on comics

Also working on Secret Fellowship Projects - more to come in the future…

Season 3 of Young Justice [Note: what I looked up post recording showed Warner Bros Animation but didn't specify an outlet yet]

[Note: The Omega Man was released in 1971.]

Nov 6, 2016

The Fellowship is pleased to present a discussion of anthologies in comics, and how they're not as common as they used to be. We try to get a handle on why that's the case, just to realize that we were the target audience from the start. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Knights of the Dinner Table magazine [note: I said 10 years, but it's probably more like 25]

Ghost Adventures (Travel Channel show) with some local connotations

Getting caught up on side projects

Oct 30, 2016
