The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 80th anniversary of Action Comics #1, the first appearance of Superman. We talk about the character, his origins, and how he's managed to stay relevant throughout the decades. We also wonder about how he might manage to stay relevant for one or two more. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

The Edgar Allan Poe Chronicles - available on Kickstarter until 4/25

Catching up on Superman comics; "explaining" to the SO that binder clips and comics DO NOT go together EVER!

Caught up on TV; also bought the Batman game (from the last KS episode)

Picked up the Hawk & Dove trade from a few weeks ago; also really digging Scooby Doo Team Up

The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 50th anniversary of the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. We talk about its roots, its story, and its impact on the culture. It's a very influential movie in a lot of ways, and it's also a bit polarizing, so it's a fun one to discuss. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Lucy Dreaming #1 (Boom! Studios) & 2000AD Prog 2073 - books from last week that I would have reviewed had I had time; both are very cool

Norman trade (Titan) & Punks Not Dead #2 (IDW/Black Crown) - rebellious fun in both cases, though in very different ways

MAD Original Idiots: Will Elder - dude is a genius

Ready Player One - amazing movie, true to the book [It sparked a bit of a tangent, too. -m]

DC's Millenium collection - an awful lot like Secret Invasion, but 30 years earlier, and thanks to Joseph Illidge for recommending 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!)

Mar 18, 2018

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???

 

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!)

Mar 11, 2018

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

Mar 4, 2018

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)

The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Planet of the Apes movie franchise. It's been a successful series of movies more than once, and also twice made into TV shows (animated and live action). And it's loaded with themes that are as relevant today as they were 50 years ago. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

The Jetsons - very dramatic and well written; Strangers in Paradise - an intriguing start, to say the least

Ready for the return of The Walking Dead; also quitting smoking (yay Liz!) [Note: we get a bit personal here in support of Liz. Quitting smoking is hard, and we want her to succeed. -m]

Milk Wars (1-3) - bizarre but fun

Moon Knight Epic Collection - there's an awesome movie or Netflix series in there

 

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!)

 

Congrats to all involved in making a sci-fi story work for 50 years. It's quite an accomplishment.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our conversation with Madeleine Holly-Rosing, creator of the Boston Metaphysical Society comic series.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of some of our favorite board games. We've got some old games, some new games, and some not-particularly-board games that we've enjoyed past and present. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

100 Years of Horror series - almost done; Monsters From The Vault - a book along the same vein, very interesting reviews of old horror flicks

Nemo: The Roses of Berlin, Codename: Knockout, The Adventures of Apocalypse Al, Thor: Ragnarok prelude - good stuff (though the Thor was a little disappointing)

X-Men: Children of the Atom Epic Collection - including a notable editing slip, probably from the original run

Big thanks to Danny for the topic suggestion :-)
