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 :-)

And be careful if you choose to participate in the madness that is Black Friday

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]

Show topic this week suggested by Eddie Medina (check him out on episode 17 of this humble podcast - or on his show, the Rantcor Pit podcast)

[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
