We saved the best for last (the last podcast of 2011, by the way) as Jesse immediately scolds us on the indie direction our podcast has recently taken, and proceeds to course-correct by taking us through his favorite books currently at Marvel Comics. A helluva way to end the year.
Freddie got the chance to sit down with writer Nathan Edmondson at Wizard World Austin back in November to discuss Grifter, the DCnU, The Activity, working with artists Mitch Gerads and Nic Klien, screenwriting, Batman, and more.
Issue #4 of Grifter hits shelves this Wednesday. (12/14) Be sure to check it out!
The boys dip their toes into some intellectual waters this episode.
Topics of discussion: revisionist history in regards to Cold War aggressors; Television, Comic Books, and the difference between utilizing the strengths of one medium in regards to another and just straight up copying one medium to another and not respecting how one audience experiences it opposed to the other; and that age old debate between Diversity and Xenophobia in the comics medium.
Going deep this week.

Part two of the continuing adventures of The Fourth Wall boys reading DC comic books. The secret word of the day is tepid. As in, “The Fourth Wall’s tepid reception for the following books Grifter, Green Lantern, and Batwoman (to an extent) will be evident if you listen to this episode.”

The first of our new installment of episodes dedicated to cover some of the new #1′s that the DC have released. Just so you know, we’re not going to read all of them, because honestly, who’s really going to read 52 new comics?
