The Mean Geek-Comics Podcasting on the Edge of Civility-FINALE!

 

I tried to put this off because as long as the last ones weren’t out there, there wouldn’t be an end. But it’s past time, so here are your last two episodes of THE MEAN GEEK-COMICS PODCASTING ON THE EDGE OF CIVILITY.

We had a lot of fun over the last eight years; lots of cons, lots of new pals, lots of really shitty comic books. We expanded horizons and learned difficult things, (well, I did-Rev just sat there drinking. Lazy fuck.) Spent a lot of money and made none. Learned new things about con culture, understood a wider variety of geek culture, and gained a great understanding of the variety of people that count themselves geeks. I still think a lot of our entertainment sub culture choices are goddamned ridiculous, but you be you, motherfuckers!

Thanks to everyone who’s contributed to our experiences; Regina and the gang at https://www.facebook.com/thegeekembassycommunity/?hc_ref=NEWSFEED&fref=nf , Andrew, our official photographer and market research analyst (twitter @PicByAndrew ) Dante, Jeff, Ian Levenstein of Comic Timing ( http://www.speakgeekspeak.com/comictiming/ ) The fine gentlemen At RAGING BULLETS (even though we don’t understand how they’ve handled N52 and Rebirth like, at all) ( http://ragingbullets.com/ ) Cobra North, (https://www.facebook.com/CobraNorth/) The WombMates ( thewombmates.com ) Well Watchers, Jon and Owen at @NotBiscuits , Mike Lepine, Dani, Josh @POIpodcast, The Ever Supportive pals at @comicsnoobshow, Cbat, Chris Gaida (Johnson loves you!) @SpaceChief75, Rue, Peter Rios (https://twitter.com/peterjrios) our inimitable UK Connection ( https://twitter.com/ravenmews ) and quite a few more others tha made making the show tolerable in the later months. We appreciate all your interactions and support.

The site will stay up for roughly a year, or as long as I don’t mind paying for it. I still think we had some relevant things to say so I’ll repost a couple episodes a week on twitter, but in just a little while, https://twitter.com/TMG_Cast will switch to SuperMachoJediKnight, featuring parody vignettes and original content featuring TROOPER JOHNSON, FETT, DUMB, AND UGLY, one offs, concepts, mood pieces, and action figure photography that everyone else already does better.

Thank you very much, everyone.

BLESS YOU, FUCKERS!

Comics Alternative, Episode 231: Reviews of The Excavation, American Gods #1, and Rat Queens #1

Listen to the podcast!

“This is not my first detachable penis rodeo”

This week’s episode is an exploration of surrealism and fantasy, and one guaranteed to both fascinate and disturb you. It begins with a discussion of Max Andersson’s The Excavation (Fantagraphics). As the Two Guys with PhDs point out, this is a book that has been years in the making, and parts of it had originally appeared in other outlets, including Andersson’s short-lived Death and Candy series. Derek enjoyed this book, as he does other works by Andersson, although Andy was less charitable in his assessment. He feels that the dream-like meandering of The Excavation ends up leading to nowhere, that there isn’t much in the way of overt themes, and that it’s too much like other indie comics discussed on the podcast.

Next, they delve into the first issue of American Gods, a series from Dark Horse Comics that’s adapted from Neil Gaiman’s popular novel. Scripted by P. Craig Russell, and with art by Scott Hampton, this inaugural issue does a good job at establishing the premise and making the story assessable to those who have never read Gaiman’s original novel (and both Derek and Andy have not). However, the guys do have a little problem with the heavy-handed and spoiler-filled synopsis inserted on the first page of the comic book.

And finally, the Two Guys wrap up with Kurtis J Wiehe and Owen Gieni’s Rat Queens #1 (Image Comics). This is the first issue in the series’ second volume, and while both of the guys see the economic logic of a new #1 issue, Derek wonders about the narrative necessity of this publishing move. Nonetheless, both Andy and Derek are fans of the first iteration of Rat Queens, and they both feel that the first issue in its second volume is an effective jumping on point that could satisfy new readers.

 

Super Hero Speak – #193: Jimmy’s Cash

This week the guys review Logan. Is Hugh Jackman’s farewell performance  as Wolverine the greatest comic book movie of all time? Or is it too dark and gritty for a superhero movie? These questions and more are explored as the guys review Logan, enjoy! Be warned spoilers ahead!
