The Fellowship is pleased to present another Casting Call episode. This time we're doing it a little differently - we're casting a new movie for Action Lab's Spencer & Locke comic series. It's a book that has been optioned for film, and it's got a deliciously dark storyline. We get into CGI, casting kids, movies vs streaming TV, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual odd behavior and our picks of the week.
 
Announcements:
Come hang out with us! We have monthly meetups on 2nd Saturdays in Garland, TX; details on Facebook & Twitter & the Events tab on our website
And we will not have a new episode next week
 
What we're up to this week:
Music documentary - Nat King Cole: Afraid of the Dark; very good doc, lots of family interviews, very sad ending
Dealing with sick kids all week, also homework for this week's topic
Homework, and Dateline reruns (tangent on true crime podcasts)
Meet & Gab was good, SDCC news, Fluxx has come to smartphones

And if this is your first Casting Call with our show, you'll want to keep Google handy. We can get a bit obscure with the names when we do this. This one shouldn't be quite as bad as when we deep-dive into decades long past, but still...
 
And I referred to our last chat with Madeleine Holly-Rosing, which was episode 146. Check it out and go buy her book!
 
Picks for the week of 7/31:
Sham #3 (Source Point)
Dear Justice League collection (DC)
Manor Black #1 (Dark Horse)

The Fellowship is pleased to present our conversation with Darin Henry, writer and publisher of Sitcomics. Sitcomics is one of the fresh new faces in the comics industry, and you're definitely going to want to check them out at Sitcomics.net (or talk to your local shop about contacting them to get their books). We talk about the Sitcomics cast of characters, working with amazing creators, rating systems, the formatting of comics, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual silliness and our picks of the week.

What we're up to this week:
Music documentary - Death By Metal (2016) about Chuck from Death (the death metal band); good doc, hard to watch at times for reasons, but go watch it
Addicted to an online game called Wordscapes
Also playing an online game; this one is Star Trek Timelines, and it's pretty fun
And another successful Meet & Gab 🙂 
No Liz this week, unfortunately

The downside to recording on Skype is that sometimes you get dropouts and hinky sound events. I don't think it interfered with the conversation too much, though.
Darin has some really interesting (and hilarious) stuff going on, with supers and horror with a comedy twist. Very cool stuff!
 
Picks for the week of 7/24:
The Dark Age #1 (Red 5)
Archie vs Predator II #1 (Archie)
Self Made trade (Image)
Marvels Epilogue (Marvel)
Dead End Kids #1 (Source Point)
Aliens: Rescue #1 (Dark Horse)
Comic For Flint: Hope one-shot (Source Point)

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the Apollo 11 moon landing on or near the 50th anniversary of the event. This was a huge event not only from a scientific perspective, but also for nationalism during the Cold War and for popular culture (for the TV coverage alone). We talk about NASA, the government, conspiracy theories, space shuttle accidents, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual weirdness and our picks of the week.
 
Announcements:
Come hang out with us! We have monthly meetups on 2nd Saturdays in Garland, TX; details on Facebook & Twitter & the Events tab on our website
 
What we're up to this week:
More music documentaries - this week it was Rainbow and Iron Maiden; I learned a lot about both (which is good, I think)
More online comics - found some older Danger Girl books (good stuff); tangent about the July 4th holiday [sitting at Lew for a week - the county jail is named the Lew Sterrett Detention Center. And now you know 🙂 ]
Reading some DC collections - Invasion, Planetary/Justice League, Catwoman 75 Years
New addition - Batman: The Sunday Classics 1943-1946

The moon landing was a huge step for humanity, one I hope we can find a way to make useful sometime soon. We've certainly found plenty of ways to corrupt it, make fun of it, and blindly refuse to believe it.
And I was close, sort of - it was A Trip To The Moon (1902), not The First Men In The Moon (the HG Wells story published in 1901, first made into a movie in 1919). Thomas named it correctly early on 🙂 
And while we're at it, I found this great YouTube video about the moon landing hoax thing
 
Picks for the week of 7/17:
Vampirella #1 (Dynamite)
Blade Runner 2019 #1 (Titan)
Before Houdini volume 2 (Insight Comics)
Die!Die!Die! volume 1 (Image)
Ragnarok: The Breaking of Helheim #1 (IDW)
X-Men Epic Collection: It's Always Darkest Before The Dawn (Marvel)
X-Liefelds #1 (Keenspot)
Collapser #1 (DC/Young Animal)
Honorable Mention: They Called Us Enemy GN (IDW) [Allegiance was the name of the musical that I was forgetting here]
 
Shoutouts:
Condolences to the family, friends and fans of Cameron Boyce, who died this week way too young
And MAD Magazine will cease publication later this year - the end of an era

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of Vampirella on or near the 50th anniversary of her debut. This is a comics character with an interestingly diverse background and history, and a (mostly) consistent publication run. We talk about her ownership issues, changes in backstory, and crossovers galore, along with a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual crazy talk and our picks of the week.
 
Announcements:
Come hang out with us! We have monthly meetups on 2nd Saturdays in Garland, TX; details on Facebook & Twitter & the Events tab on our website
 
What we're up to this week:
Music documentary - Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown (good doc about a hard subject)
Homework for the show, with the help of Readcomiconline.to; saw Toy Story 4; plus a little trailer talk
Saw Yesterday, liked it; also went to a local screening of Christopher Mihm's Friday Night Double Feature
Thomas' first comic convention in five years (due to working retail) - had a blast

Vampirella is a very interesting character if for no other reason than she's been presented in such a wide variety of ways and stories. She's gone from horror hostess to alien to biblical myth to antihero to hero to futuristic hellscape dweller. Not necessarily in that order, either 😉 
And apologies if the flow seems weird - we had a few odd interruptions which made editing a bit of a challenge.
 
Picks for the week of 7/10:
Wolverine & Captain America: Weapon Plus #1 (Marvel)
H. P. Lovecraft's At The Mountains of Madness volume 1 (Dark Horse)
Unearth #1 (Image)
The DC Poster Portfolio of Frank Cho (DC)
Disney Dracula starring Mickey Mouse (Dark Horse)
Reaver #1 (Image)
Second Coming #1 (Ahoy Comics)
Lucky Man: The Bracelet Chronicles #4 (T Pub)
Honorable Mention: Black Hammer Justice League: Hammer of Justice #1 (Dark Horse/DC)
