Comic Book Pitt #94 – We Come From IKEA

Comic book (aka “flurggis”) conversation dominates this episode and we tried our first “lightning round” of comic reviews. We have to work on the “lightning” part, but we talked about Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E. #9, Fantastic Four #606, Prophet #25, Mind The Gap #1, Youngblood #71, and Night of 1000 Wolves #1.

Comic Book Pitt theme music is by Nik Furious. You can find more of Nik’s music at NikFurious.com

The Mean Geek-Comics Podcasting on the Edge of Civility-Episode 104-“Half Wolverine, Half DareDevil, ALL TOOL.”

 

Due to unforeseen recording problems, we have to skip over episode 103. We will catch you up at some other point, though, with extra content. So stick with us. Unfortunately, it is a hardware issue, and was not completely resolved for episode 104.

Please forgive the continued audio issues. We talk for a very long time about collections and old books and general crap. When we finally DO get to some books, we start with Unwritten. Hit Journey Into Mystery, Iron Man, Irredeemable; Punisher, Shadow, Wonder Woman; remind ourselves of AMERICAN FLAGG!; Cap and Hawkeye; Thor, and so much more.
Listeners who wish to brave the hiss crack and pop of 103 may email us directly for a link to it.

EPISODE 14: CRITICAL CARE COMICS, MIAMI ZOMBIE ATTACK, JOHN CARTER

Episode 14 because Episode 13 was obviously bad luck.  In this Episode we talk with Jason Golden, the founder of Critical Care Comics a grass roots organization with the mission of getting comics in the hands of sick kids.  Join the movement (criticalcarecomics.org, @CCComics4kids on Twitter, facebook.com/CriticalCareComics) Jon Cooney (hesgotissues.com) gives us the business in the comic book world.  David takes what may be considered some controversial stances on the likes of Frank Miller, Grant Morrison, and the Avengers vs. X-Men crossover.  Brandon shares a more than disturbing news story about a REAL LIFE ZOMBIE ATTACK…has it begun?  Both discuss The Dark Knight Rises media campaign.  David says the word “epic” just doesn’t do it to describe this movie any more causing Brandon to once again invent a new word.  Brandon finally sees John Carter and gives his review and discussions heat up a bit as David is forced into defending Barsooms honor.  They end the episode by totally ripping off NPR’s Culturetopia podcast letting you know what’s making them nerdy this week…Batgirl and Portlandia   #lonerdsup

Radio Free Asgard 55

Radio Free Asgard

This time around, we look at some lesser Simonson goodness in Balder the Brave #1 (1985)  and then we look at Thor #142 (1967), which features the cross-eyed, pointy-shouldered, and vaguely motivated Super Skrull! Plus: Tales of Asgard!

Chronic Insomnia – Re-Masterbated Series! Issue # 134 WMD Aprils Fools!

Issue # 134.  Originally Aired March 30th, 2010.

As part of the Re-Masterbated series this is one our brightest moments as a show.  Many of you haven’t heard these shows before and with the remaining time we have left on Podbean you’ll get to hear a few of the shows from our distance and sordid past.  Enjoy!

What would happen if the Chronic Crew took over Where Monsters Dwell for a night?  Find out in this episode, as Mike & Ryan lampoon all the bits, bumps, and hosts of our favorite Canadian pop culture podcast in honor of April Fools!  Opening Night, New Comic Wednesday, and a special interview with the legendary Harvey Fierstein – it’s a time capsule of both shows!

As always, we still love the all of you.

Photobucket

In this special episode I’m once again joined by Benjamin Grimm, and we talk The Hunger Games (2011), Battle Royale (2000), and The Running Man (1987). We discuss if one ripped the others off, if they’re just similar, and what story all three might have been inspired by. Spoilers!

Two True Freaks! Episode 262 – Commentary Monthly Monday – Ultimate Avengers

0d9c

Join the Freaks and COMIC COHORT Michael Bailey as they munch popcorn and Combos and talk all the way through ULTIMATE AVENGERS with their mouth’s full! Six years before Joss Whedon’s little sleeper film there was a cartoony smash ’em up with many of the same elements and the Freaks figured, “What the hell, let’s jump on the bandwagon!” Seeing how Chris had to read 13 GODDAM COMICS in the Ultimates series, we might as well make him watch the movie, too! And guess what? – INTERDIMENSIONAL NAZIS!
