View from the Gutters #154 — Gladstone’s School for World Conquerors

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Gladstone's School for World Conquerors, by Mark Andrew Smith and Armand Villavert Jr. Set in a top secret school for young and aspiring super-villains (themselves predominantly the offspring of super-villains), the series follows the hijinks and adventures of a group of students. All is—as is so often the case—not quite as it seems, as unbeknownst to the children a secret accord keeps the peace between heroes and villains, and not everyone is happy with this status quo. This series is fun, colorful, and great for younger readers—but contains more serious content as well. Readers familiar with animated series such as The Venture Bros. and Teen Titans will be on familiar ground. For our next episode we will be reading My Friend Dahmer. Our hosts for this episode are Tobiah Panshin, Kit Deforge, Kayleigh Fleeman, Joe Preti, and Brant Gillihan-Eddy.

#482 Peanuts: A Twentieth-Century Classic

Lucy pulls away the football Charles Schulz's Peanuts is one of the most beloved comic strips of the 20th century. But while some prefer the hilariously cruel and despairing tone of the first half of the series, it seems that the public perception of Peanuts is more in line with the cute, commercial tone it took on in its second 25 years. This week Tim and Kumar come back to Peanuts, more than seven years after reviewing the Schulz bio, to delve more into the strip itself. What is the nature of the Peanuts kids? What motivates them? How does Peanuts (especially in its first half) fit an existentialist view of the world? Also discussed: the recent movie — what was good or bad. Was showing the Little Red Haired Girl a good idea? Plus, a nod to a few of Schulz's more interesting panel compositions, and, what Peanuts strip does Tim want on his wall? Deconstructing Comics site

Crisis On Infinite Midlives Show Episode 102: In Blackest G’nort

CrisisOnInfinideMidlivesPodcastLogo_300x300It's been a couple of weeks since DC Comics Co-Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee tweeted their first teasers toward something called "Rebirth," and  since then, there has been, well, absolutely no concrete hard news whatsoever. But what there are are rumors. Many, many rumors. From where did the rumors originate? Who knows? But rumors there be, about book cancellations, creative team changes, new books, new first issues, and partial to total reboots. So we talk about them, kick around which sound like good ideas, which seem like terrible mistakes, and wind up in a short-term, love-hate bromance with Dan DiDIo. We also discuss:
  • Batman: Europa #4, written by Matteo Casali and Brian Azzarello, with art by Gerald Parel, and:
  • Spider-Man #1, written by Brian Michael Bendis, with art by Sara Pichelli!
And, the usual disclaimers:
  • We record this show live to tape, with minimal editing. While this might mean a looser comics podcast than you are used to, it also means that anything can happen. Like finding a very valid, but... shall we say, alternative, use for your comics.
  • This show contains spoilers. While we try to shout out warnings ahead of time, be aware that you might find out that Batman talks like Phillip Marlowe, and why that's maybe not a great idea.
  • This show contains adult, profane language, and is therefore not safe for work. You want your boss to find out what "Gank the wingman" means? Then get some headphones.

Leprechaun-say yeah It was a down week for books and after getting yelled out all week about review scores, Jim was pretty depressed.  That means one thing...The Mobile Leprechaun.  Yes, nothing brings a smile to Jim and Eric's face quicker than a little, "Who Else Seen Da Leprechaun Say Yeah!"  It carries them through this long ass episode where they break down all the books, talk DC Comics news, get yelled at in the listener mail and try to have a good time.  Enjoy!

TMG_Cast-Comics Podcasting on the Edge of Civility-Episode 227-Episode 227 “I’ll Take My Bruce Back, Thanks”

TMGcastCCC_web_banner_grey_2         The Rev complains about reading Neuromancer, it not being his own cuppa.  TechJedi mentions The Jessica Drew show.  Tech continues his downward spiral of despair on the portrayal of Batman in Batman v Superman. The we do a back and forth about the properness of criticizing books when you can't take criticism about your books. Eventually we get to DC's all the way back from October. We start with Bizarro 5, which amazes us month to month. Breaking into Area 51 turns out about as well as you'd expect. STARFIRE 5 has Kori meeting a cancer sucking man who seems to have killed, and has a job interview. It's complete adorable storytelling. DETECTIVE 45 has Bruce visited by the Leageu to see if they can help his memories. Tectch attempts to take down the Bat Blimp, with Jim joining up the JLA. WONDER WOMAN 45 brings us the confrontation between Aegeus and Strife and Diana. Donna's nice day tooling around London is marred by violence. BATGIRL 45 is kind of a filler issue, although it's well enough done for all that. Dick shows up for precisely no goddamned reason. SINESTRO 16 Black Adam guest stars as the two most imperious forces in the DC Universe contest their wills if not their force. The Bishop of the Paling is quite a surprise. BATMITE 5 is slightly more fun than the other issues, and is a pretty clear commentary on revamping characters, just like last ish was a commentary on static fan bases. SUPERMAN 45 takes a really bad turn; a down and out Clark finds the WWE of the Gods. Eww. BATMAN 45 pleases me with the scenes of Bruce in the cave. 30,000 seems a pretty high number though. JL 3001 #5 shows us Guy rooming with a Starro-and I'll leave it there. We end everything traditionally with Astro City 28 Wolfspider is the latest in an amazing string of somewhat one-off characters that are so full and complete in one single issue that the rest of the comics universes really need to see what Busiek has to say and start thinking what they can do to give us some real characters.
