The Fellowship is pleased to present our 100th episode! We talked this week about the podcast, about the process we use for the show, stuff we enjoy about what we're doing, and general appreciation to you, dear listeners, for checking out the show and liking at least some of the same stuff we like. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

*I have no idea if that's a real word or not. But it seems to fit.

 

What we're up to this week:

Kasai: Homecoming #1 - Kickstarter comic about demigods and pro wrestling, with only a few days left, so go check it out

Liz's Big Bag o' Nothing® - working a lot, not much time to read

James Ellroy's The Black Dahlia graphic novel (Archaia) - excellent read

Marvel Super Heroes nostalgia (and a podcast), Abbott #1, Detective Comics Annual #1

Feb 4, 2018

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 :-)

Jan 28, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of DC's Doomsday Clock series - not so much the story, though, as the "politics" of the title. We talk about the history of Watchmen and the clashes between DC and Alan Moore, and whether or not this new series should have been made. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Police Squad on DVD - freaking genius; also Allegiance by Timothy Zahn

Walking Dead omnibus reread, and some bad puns

Grading comics, and The Giant Spider (Christopher Mihm film)

Catlow (70s western), Black Panther epic collection, Dead by Daylight's new Saw DLC

Jan 21, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the career of cartoonist Sergio Aragones, whose work was first published in MAD Magazine 55 years ago this month. He's a prolific artist with a glorious sense of humor, and we're big fans of his. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Liz is cold - our cold snaps do not compare to the areas having real problems, but we're not used to it

Snagglepuss, The Tick, Rocko's Modern Life comics, also Image+

Old Battlestar Galactica trades, would love to see an omnibus of them

Dejah Thoris #0, Monstro Mechanica #2, Mighty Crusaders, Codename Knockout

Also Not Brand Echh, which was a little disappointing

And go back to your local comic shop to pick up the new Strangers in Paradise #1 by our pal Terry Moore - we somehow forgot to mention it last week; sorry, Terry :-(

 

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!)

 

Thanks, Sergio, for all of the laughs you've given us over the years :-)

 

[Note: Avery Schreiber is another one of those whose name is unfamiliar, but once you see his face you're like "oh yeah, that guy, he's been everywhere." Google him ;-) -m]

Jan 14, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our latest Casting Call episode. This time we're adding some casting to the 1978 Superman film series (you know, Christopher Reeve and company). We have a list of characters and we've come up with casting ideas for them. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Mikey's Big Bag o' Nothing® - having to be the r-word

A trade-a-day reading group, starting to watch Happy

Bubba Ho-Tep on the big screen

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 mention near the end that you may want to have Google or Wikipedia handy while listening; sometimes we get a little obscure since we're talking about actors from the past. (Not if you're driving, though.)

 

Also, if you have any ideas for casting these characters, please share them with us on social media. We'd love to hear from you and discuss them :-)

 

[Note: Aliens was 1986. I can't believe I blanked on that… And I was way off on A Clockwork Orange (1971). -m]

 

As mentioned, not linking every name we talked about. But Les mentioned this list of Superman villains you can check out.

Jan 7, 2018

The Fellowship is pleased to present our celebration of the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein. We talk about the story, variations on the story, sci-fi implications, film adaptations and our usual silliness. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

Red Dwarf XII - good but not great

Vacation in central Texas, reading comics in the car - Wonder Woman The True Amazon, very impressive

Doctor Radar, Barbarella

Thomas' Big Bag o' Nothing® - taking it easy this week

No major happenings from NYE - just a bit of a tangent on the really cold weather we had

And the Thin Man marathon on TCM

[Note: The Chris Meloni movie Les describes is National Lampoon's Dirty Movie (2011). -m]

 

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!)

Dec 24, 2017

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the repercussions of the deal in which Disney is buying out most of Fox. There are a ton of moving parts in this, and a lot of potential for geek stuff to be affected, so we chatted about some of the possibilities. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

100 Years of Horror (Amazon Prime) - very cool documentary series once you get past the terrible opening titles

Negative Space (Dark Horse), Here's Negan, getting ready for the holidays

[Note: Thomas' microphone was doing that weird thing to his voice again. It did it once before during recording, but hasn't done it again since, so we didn't have any way to fix it. We're still not even sure it's his microphone, but we'll try to pin it down. Mostly it just makes him sound a bit autotuned. But anyway, sorry about that. -m]

Hawkman Found #1 (DC)

Dec 10, 2017

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the "Death of Superman" story arc on its 25th anniversary.
