Crisis On Infinite Midlives Show Episode 44: Jedi Montessori Academy For The Bacterially Challenged

CrisisOnInfinideMidlivesPodcastLogo_300x300The first Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens teaser trailer dropped on Friday. It’s 88 seconds long, it features less than half of that in new footage, it gives us almost no story context… and it’s enough to get the geek world shrieking like teenagers at a One Direction concert.

So we talk about the trailer: why it was so effective, the smart choices director J. J. Abrams made to turn Generation X’ers all giddy like, well, teenagers at a One Direction concert, and how 88 seconds was all it took to change our opinions about the upcoming movie from ambivalence to legitimate anticipation.

We also discuss the solicits for week three of DC’s Convergence event. This round, which drops on April 22nd, seems to feature versions of DC heroes from before Crisis On Infinite Earths, with antagonists from the Tangent Universe. So sit back, relax, and hear about a week designed to somehow simultaneously appeal to 50-year-olds and Millennials!

We also talk about:

  • Gotham By Midnight #1, written by Ray Fawkes with art by Ben Templesmith, and:
  • Spider-Man 2099 #6, written by Peter David with art by Will Sliney!

And now the disclaimers:

  • We record this show live to tape. While this might mean a looser comics than you might be used to, it also means anything can happen. Like comparing Teen Titan Jericho to a specific form of intestinal distress.
  • This show contains spoilers. While we try to shout warnings ahead of time, consider this your master caution alarm.
  • This show contains adult, profane language, and is therefore not safe for work. Don’t be a filthy Jericho; get yourself some headphones.

For Topic Time, they discuss a list of the Top 15 Lamest Superheroes in Comics (aka Biggest Turkeys), which they have some issues with.

To close out the show, they go to announcements before sidetracking into some wrestling discussion as the show comes to an end.

View from the Gutters presents Back Matter #8.NOW — Art vs. Artist

Back Matter is our roundtable discussion show focused on discussion that doesn’t make it into our main show, including interviews, news and events in the comics industry, television and movies, or discussions of comics which open onto a broader conversation. Feel free to email us discussion ideas or any comments or questions you might have at contact@viewfromthegutters.com.

On this episode of Back Matter our hosts discuss the line between art and artist when an artist commits acts or espouses beliefs with you disagree with morally.

WARNING: On this episode our conversation includes the frank discussion of sexual and domestic assault, as well as other topics which might be distressing to some listeners. None of the discussion is graphic, but if hearing about these topics is troubling for you, we recommend you listen to a different episode of the show.

Our Ms. Marvel episode from yesterday is basically a hug-fest, so be sure to check that one out if you haven’t yet.

Our hosts for this episode are Joe Preti,  Tobiah Panshin, Kayleigh Fleeman, Audrey Preti, and Michael Martin.

This week we cover Thor #177, another rather lackluster late Lee/Kirby issue. In this one,Thor spanks a horse, sacrifices an unfortunate fish, and Surtur manages to lose his horns!! Poor Surtur…

View from the Gutters #94 — Ms. Marvel

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Ms. Marvel, written by G. Willow Wilson with art by Adrian Alphona and Jacob Wyatt. Launched in 2014, Ms. Marvel follows the adventures of Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American teenager from Jersey City, NJ, who gains superpowers after being exposed to the Terrigen Mists. Kamala—an avid fan (and fanfic writer) of the Avengers—almost immediately launches into a superhero career, taking up the name Ms. Marvel which was recently abandoned by her idol, Carol Danvers (who is now Captain Marvel).

The series is timely, inclusive, and above all incredibly honest. It whole-heartedly embraces Kamala’s identity as a Mulsim, a daughter of immigrants, and as an American teenager. It also demonstrates what is best in superheroes comics (and no, I don’t just mean Lockjaw).

For this episode we read all of the issues currently in print, #1-9.

The article referenced on the show is Putting The Sidekick In The Suit: Black Captain America, Female Thor, And The Illusion Of Progress. The previous discussion on the same topic is in the comments section of Back Matter #7.

In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated The Auteur, Atomic Robo, Pretty Deadly, The Rabbi’s Cat, and Four Eyes for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Four Eyes.

Our hosts for this episode are Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Brant Gillihan-Eddy, Keyleigh Fleeman, and Tobiah Panshin.
