Erik makes a complete departure from the podcast format to read the brilliant and ridiculous “50 Shades of MODOK”, written by @KitBlonde and used with her permission. Follow her on Twitter, she’s funny. Originally posted as a story on modokgrey.tumblr.com. Erik & James agree it’s awesome. (Sidenote/Correction: I believe I mention in the audio that the story was written by “a guy” when it is in fact written by a lady; her Twitter avatar is a dude, so, I assumed…and you know how that goes.)

Earlier this week, producer Adi Shankar and director Joseph Kahn put their 15 minute fan film Power/Rangers on the web. Three days later, the film has been taken off of both YouTube and Vimeo due to copyright claims by Saban Brands and its lawyers. You can still find the movie on Facebook, of which Shankar thanks for not bending to the copyright claim.
Ian is joined by The Black Box’s Shawn Pryor and Ignorant Bliss‘ Julian Lytle for this Extra Point to discuss the star-studded short in full (James Van Der Beek and Katee Sackhoff, seriously!), what some of the original Rangers thought about the short, along with where we think the upcoming Mighty Morphin Power Rangers reboot may go as a film, what fan films mean to the industry as a whole, what it takes to make a mature film versus a mature content film, and a whole lot more where that came from!

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Umbral, Vol. 1 & 2, by Antony Johnston and Christopher Mitten. Umbral is a fantasy story starring a young thief named Rascal, who has befriended the young prince of her native kingdom.
Things take a turn for the worse, however, when on the day of an eclipse the Umbral—a race of shapeshiting shadow monsters—return, slaughter the royal family, and take their place. Rascal finds herself on the run from the Umbral, along with a shifty (and possibly immortal) wizard, a smuggler, and a drunken scholar.
In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated The Royals: Masters of War, Princeless, Nimona, and Birthright for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is The Royals: Masters of War.
Our hosts for this episode are Andrew Chard, Tobiah Panshin, Kayleigh Fleeman, and Brant Gillihan-Eddy.

On this week’s podcast, the Two Guys with PhDs take on a gargantuan task: they review ten different #1 issues from a variety of publishers. First they look at several debuts from Image Comics, including Bryan Hill, Matt Hawkins, and Isaac Goodhart’s Postal; Jimmie Robinson’s The Empty; Brian Joines, Jay Faerber, and Ilias Kyriazis’s Secret Identities; and Ben Acker, Ben Blacker, and J. Bone’s Sparks Nevada: Marshall on Mars. After those they discuss three new titles from Dark Horse Comics, such as Richard Corben’s Rat God, Rafael Albuquerque and Mike Johnson’s Ei8ht, and Dean Motter’s Mister X: Razed. And then they wrap up with two #1 issues from BOOM! Studios/Archaia — Swifty Lang and Skuds McKinley’s Plunder, and Ed Brisson and Damian Couceiro’s Cluster — and finally Ryan Ferrier and Valentin Ramon’s D4ve from IDW Publishing. Almost all of these new titles are worth checking out, with enthusiastic recommendations going to Cluster, Secret Identities, and especially the clever and comedic D4ve (perhaps the best of the bunch). And while Derek and Andy W. try to focus on the positive, they aren’t overly enamored of Sparks Nevada, a miniseries based off of a Thrilling Adventure Hour performance. In fact, some of the comedy in this first issue seems to rely — and, at times, confusingly so — on sounds, a strategy that doesn’t translate as effectively in comics. But outside of this little bump, this episode presents a smooth and enjoyable trip down the road of recent comicsdom. There’s a lot to digest in the extra-long podcast, so just sit back, relax, listen up, and let the Two Guys do the driving.

Eventually we get to DCs with WONDER WOMAN 37-council meetings and monsters; BATMAN 37-where Alfred suddenly has multiple advanced degrees in chemistry and biochemistry; SECRET SIX 1 that was just…um. yeah. BATGIRL 37, a seemingly hamfisted commentary on internet fame; DETECTIVE 37, with Hatter and Anarky goin nutsy. Moving rapidly to SINESTRO 8 gets us motherboxes. The HARLEY QUINN HOLIDAY SPECIAL has a couple fun things that’s worth a dollar box purchase. SUPERMAN 37 keeps us entertained as we see the consequences of blowing up worlds. ASTRO CITY 18 continues the great and detailed backstory of Quarrel. WOLF MOON 1 has a new take on the whole werewolf thing. JUSTICE LEAGUE 3000 13 is fun but thin.
