The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of weddings in comics, specifically the two coming out of the Big 2 this summer. Kitty and Colossus, Catwoman and Batman, and you know we're not going to get out of this without some historical ones as well. Plenty of opportunity for our usual silliness, of course. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Documentaries - Bombshell (Hedy Lamarr) & Now More Than Ever (Chicago - the band, that is); highly recommend both, and they're on Netflix

Jerry & The Joker (awesome memoir from Jerry Robinson, creator of the Joker), The Complete Cosmo the Merry Martian (from Archie Comics back in the day), The Red Hook (Dean Haspiel, interesting story premise)

Underdog Classics trade (cool stuff from the '70s, interesting color style)

No Liz this week :-(

The Fellowship is pleased to present our quarterly crowdfunding focus. We've got a bunch of awesome Kickstarter comics to share with you this time around. Go check them out (they're all linked below), and see what else you can find there too. Plus our normal abnormality. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Doctor Who streaming on Twitch - nostalgic, and cool sci-fi, but the stories are weaker than I hoped

Prelude to the Wedding one-shots - entertaining, especially the Ra's al Ghul/Damian one

Attended a festival for short films at the Texas Theatre - some good films, entertaining overall

Sgt Preston of the Yukon - TV show from the '50s; not a good show, but credit to the network for showing something that wasn't a "classic"

(And a bit of a tangent on old TV shows)

 

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!)

[Note: the weird hum was still an issue this week. Still no idea what the problem is; Liz can't hear anything on her end, but it only happens when she's talking (well, mostly). Also, it seems that my mic was feeling a bit sensitive too, as it picked up some of my breathing. Again, sorry for what I can't edit out. -m]

Jun 10, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion on aging in comics. It's strange how some characters seem to age (Dick Grayson, for example) while others don't (Bruce Wayne, am I right?). How important is it? Does it matter at all? Opinions and silliness run free here, not surprisingly. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Fear & Loathing, The Black Monday Murders volume 2, started Mythic

Also watched Demon with the Atomic Brain (Christopher Mihm film)

Forgetting what we ordered from the Previews catalog…

The Wormworld Saga - nice little story

[Tangent about how one reads comics; we may have to revisit this one later :-)]

Screening of The Producers (1968) [And the obligatory Mel Brooks tangent - we're all huge fans, obviously]

Star Lord: Guardian of the Galaxy trade

 

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!)

 

[Note: there was something a little wonky with Liz's Skype connection. She was getting an occasional background static that was quite overpowering at times. I cut out what I could, and we apologize for what's still there. -m]

 

Picks for the week of 6/13:

Plastic Man #1 (DC)

Dejah Thoris #5 (Dynamite)

The Magic Order #1 (Image) [And a bit of a tangent on collecting :-)]

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the "DC Implosion" on its 40th anniversary. One of DC's darkest hours, back in the 1970s the company tried to snatch market share back from Marvel, and it chose the wrong time to act, as we discuss. We talk about some fascinating implications, and make a snarky joke or two. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Trade pile - Norman, I Hate Fairyland, Postal (my pile is a bit dark)

Family time - most of them don't do comics, but there's a nephew who gets it

Found a comic sale and had a blast

Not much other than planning some future episodes :-)

(here's the link mentioned about the FF thing from the '60s)

 

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!)

 

If you want to read more on this, the Wikipedia page has some links you can check out, including the Jenette Khan column that was meant to intro the "Explosion." And the idea of Les owning Marvel is mind-blowing to say the least, right? ;-)

 

Picks for the week of 6/6:

Sherlock Holmes: The Vanishing Man #2 (Dynamite)

Doctor Strange #1 (Marvel)

Stowaway to the Stars #1 (IDW)

Deadpool #1 (Marvel)

Breathless #3 (Black Mask)

Honorable Mention: Athena Voltaire and the Sorcerer Pope trade (Action Lab)

The Fellowship is pleased to present another Casting Call - this time for the Tim Burton Batman "franchise." We're casting 1990-ish stars for some potential Batman allies and villains.

What we're up to this week:

Catching up on Knights of the Dinner Table, and watched Weresquito: Nazi Hunter

Batman: White Knight - two thumbs up

Bought a whole bunch of "dollar bin" comics, haven't gotten through them all yet

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of comics properties we'd like to see in the theaters or on the small screen. There are a ton of movies and shows out there now, but these are (some of) the ones we'd make if we were talented. Our normal levels of silliness apply. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Comics pile - FCBD stuff was pretty dang good this year, Brothers Dracul is great fun as well, and Knights of the Dinner Table :-)

Rockwall Comic Fest 2018 - a very well organized event, and well attended

Infinity War - the short, non-spoilery version: thumbs up

 

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!)

 

Our list of comics we'd like to see on either the big or small screen:

May 13, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of comics titles that we would recommend to new or lapsed readers. The idea here is not to just list our favorite titles - we're trying to find titles that will draw in folks who don't normally go for comics. We even talk a bit about how that works, and we get a little off track at one point (shocking, right?). And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

The films of Christopher Mihm (at least some of them) are now available on Amazon Prime Video - very entertaining and weird

Free Comic Book Day was a blast; also praise for the Hit-Girl series

Shock Rockets - cool series from a few years back

More FCBD love, in terms of the free comics themselves; also a book called Funny Face!: An Amusing History of Potato Heads, Block Heads, and Magic Whiskers

And the "get off my lawn" tangent of the week :-)

 

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 hope you find some comics here in our list that can help people get into the wonderful world of comics :-)

 

Note: Thom Zahler's new series is called Warning Label, and here's the Kickstarter link, which runs until June 11

 

Picks for the week of 5/16:

New Challengers #1 (DC)

The Three Stooges Slaptastic Special (American Mythology)

Harley Loves Joker #2 (DC)

Ether: The Copper Golems #1 (Dark Horse)

X-Men Wedding Special #1 (Marvel)

All The Answers (Gallery 13)

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of 10 years of Marvel movies. The Infinity War is now upon us, and we're taking a look back at how we got here. A bunch of past, a little bit of present, and a smidgen of possible future. Plus some compare and contrast with that other "cinematic universe." And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Aliens: Dust to Dust #1 and Jeepers Creepers #1 - new books last week that were awesome

Les' Big Bag o' Nothing® - out of pocket, not much time for fun stuff

Saw a certain new movie - no spoilers, because spoilers SUCK!

Also Rick & Morty comics - quick, easy read, very entertaining

Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars and Wait For Your Laugh - two cool documentaries to check out

The Fellowship is pleased to present our summer movie preview. Once again we go down the list of movie releases for the summer season and talk about the ones we think will be interesting or funny.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our suggestions for crossovers starring Valiant's cast of characters. We had a whole lot of fun coming up with pairings between the heroes of the Valiant universe and the heroes of other comics universes (we get a little obscure at times). A great opportunity, too, for our particular brand of silliness. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Analog #1 & Isola #1 - both Image titles, both very exciting first issues

Actually not watching The Walking Dead, apparently; also high praise for Won't You Be My Neighbor?

The Robert Asprin Myth series - great little fantasy novels, easy to consume, lots of pun - er, I mean fun ;-)

Batman: The Dark Knight Detective volume 1 - a cool throwback to the '60s TV series (from the late '80s?)

 

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're teaming up Valiant's finest heroes with DC, Marvel, - hell, whoever we can think of! If you think of any cool ones, let us know on social media!

 

Picks for the week of 4/18:

Action Comics #1000 (DC)

Skyward #1 (Image)

Black Hammer: Age of Doom #1 (Dark Horse)
