Lost Boys Pop Culture Podcast Ep 1: Nintendo Switch, Circuses and Monopoly / Weird Science DC Comics Podcast

Welcome to the premier of the Lost Boys Pop Culture Podcast.  Yep, one podcast isn’t enough so Jim and Eric are starting another one…maybe.  Listen to them talk about trips to the circus, their hate of Monopoly and what they think about the Nintendo Switch.  If that’s not enough, hear them talk about Jerry Rice, discount supermarkets, The Black Adam movies and their top 5 Pixar movies.  Enjoy!


Radio Free Asgard 257

With Loki in charge of Asgard, Thor, Balder, Sif and the Warriors Three have to fight a pair of flying hands! Odin gets sent to bed (apparently) without his supper, Loki grows really big, and everyone keeps stating the obvious! (Hey, it’s a Stan Lee comic) Plus there’s a big bald guy! Nuff said!


ComicsVerse’s Drunk Comic Book Origins: Spider-Man

On December 18th, 2016, Anna Garcia drank an entire bottle of wine and attempted to retell the origin of Spider-Man (the original comic storyline, not the movie version). Spider-Man has always had, in my opinion, the best narrative construction of any superhero. He checks all the boxes of the “perfect” situational storytelling for any young hero:

  • Complex, vulnerable, and tragic lead in Peter Parker, check.
  • An outcast in high school who gets superpowers, check.
  • Lives with an older woman allowing him to get away with sneaking around, check.
  • A balance of villains who are people close to him and those he has never met before, check.
  • A supporting cast that is as interesting as he is (Harry, MJ, Gwen, etc.), check.
  • Contained to one city (more grounded than trying to saving the world), check.
  • Easy to follow storylines, check.

READ: SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #13 Review: Meaning of Life

On the most fundamental level, there is no better hero to write. So naturally, I figured why not try and retell the original comic origin? No, that wasn’t good enough; let’s try and retell this story while intoxicated…

This is ComicsVerse’s new series, Drunk Comic Origins!

Anna Garcia is a Screen Arts student at the University of Michigan and also happens to be a good friend of mine. She graciously volunteered to be our drunken storyteller and throughout the experience continued to make the claim that she was “on an adventure!” Anna has always been a big fan of the web slinger and was able to give a somewhat accurate rendition of the original story. The basic plot points that we covered were:

  • Pre-powers Peter Parker
  • The spider bite incident
  • Selfish post-powers/pre-Spider-Man Peter Parker
  • The tragic loss of Uncle Ben
  • Peter’s transformation into Spider-Man
  • A rundown of the supporting characters

Comics Alternative, Episode 223: Reviews of Trump: The Complete Collection, The Few #1, and Gumballs #1

Listen to the podcast!

Bad Trump, Good Trump

Time Codes:

blkfade

This week the Two Guys with PhDs start off by getting political. While some listeners might not like it when Andy and Derek become polemical on the podcast, the guys just had to speak out about the brouhaha surrounding Congressman John Lewis’s recent comments on Trump’s illegitimacy. The Two Guys stand with Representative Lewis, a man of courage, honor, and action. And it’s heartening that copies of March are selling out all over the place!

But enough of the bad Trump. The guys find more serious another entity of that name, this one orchestrated by the legendary Harvey Kurtzman. Trump: The Complete Collection is the second volume in Dark Horse’s Essential Kurtzman series. This beautiful hardbound edition collects the only two issues of Trump ever published, as well as the many never-before reproduced illustrations from what would have been the third issue of the magazine, had Hugh Hefner not pulled the plug. Both Andy and Derek appreciate the collection — especially Denis Kitchen’s outstanding essay and annotations! — and while some of the humor appears dated (or even falls flat at times), this text stands out as an indispensable historical contribution.

After that Derek and Andy check out two recent #1 issues, Sean Lewis and Hayden Sherman’s The Few (Image Comics) and Erin Nations’s Gumballs (Top Shelf/IDW Publishing). The former is a leisurely paced and extra-long issue centered around a future where the United States is now a fractured territory due to water scarcities (at least the guys think this is the series’ premise). Sherman’s art stands out here. And Gumballs is a single-creator anthology that’s a mix of autobiographical sketches, character portraits, and poignant cultural observations. The guys look forward to seeing what transpires in both of these series.

ComicsVerse Comic Book News Show Episode 1

ComicsVerse presents the Weekly Comics News Show — a weekly program bringing you the latest in comic book news, releases, and more. Host Patrick Aloia and his guest hosts (this week — Lilie Le Prevost) will scour through releases and news stories every week to get you exactly what you need to be up to date in the world of comics.

What was Rhode Island Comic Con like in 2016? Here’s our wrap-up video!

This week we’re featuring stories on CBLDF’s release statement, and a big surprise in YOUNG JUSTICE. CBLDF’s statement on Simon & Schuster’s decision to publish Milo Yiannopoulos’ memoir is largely non-committal but also admonishing of efforts to protest the book. YOUNG JUSTICE’s co-creator Greg Weisman confirmed that a character in the DC cartoon series is LGBT.

Want more Lilie? Duh! We all do! She interviewed Tim Jones at Rhode Island Comic Con this year!

For new releases, we’re featuring Marvel’s INHUMANS vs X-MEN, which is on their third issue (#2 since they started with #0) where things start to come to a head between the X-Men and the Inhumans as they fight for survival. And for DC, we’re featuring ALL-STAR BATMAN, which begins a new storyline featuring Mr. Freeze, which proves to be as fun as you’d expect. The featured Image release is the highly anticipated GOD COUNTRY, which has a big sword, which is good and important. We’ll also talk about Darkhorse, BOOM! Studios, and IDW.

Lilie kicks ass at this Bob Camp interview at this year’s Rhode Island Comic Con!

Crisis On Infinite Midlives Show Episode 139: This Time It’s Personal: The 2016 Crises Awards

It’s awards season, and you know what that means: networks will cynically use the concept of an awards show to fill time by looking back at old entertainment rather than looking forward and creating something new. By which we mean: welcome to the third annual Crisis On Infinite Midlives Crises awards!

2016 was a weird year for comics and genre entertainment: there was some spectacular work from areas that no one would have guessed even a year ago, and some real garbage fires from people and organizations who one would think we could count on. And we go back and sift through all of it, one last time, before we move onward and upward into an uncertain year where Wolverine will retire, Spider-Man will come home, Warren Ellis will regain his authority, and we choose to believe that General Leia Organa will, to coin a phrase, just fade away.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Best and worst comic series / miniseries
  • Best and worst comic event
  • Best single issue
  • Best and worst genre movie
  • Best and worst genre TV
  • Biggest surprise and disappointment of 2016, and:
  • Most and least anticipated entertainments of 2017!

And, the disclaimers:

  • This show contains spoilers. That said: this show contains discussions about all comics and genre entertainment of 2016. You’ve had a lot of time to get up to speed here. Still and all: consider yourself warned.
  • This show contains adult, profane language, and is therefore not safe for work. We talk about Civil War II and Spider-Clones here, which means we’ll use language that will get you fired. Get some headphones.
