Alternate Reality – Episode 401


Alternate Reality – Episode #401

The boys wind down the Halloween season by talking about some scary book this week…… Well, kind of.  I mean Jon’s talking about the Halloween specials Dynamite put out for both Red Sonja and Vampirella.  Charlie’s keeping things supernatural with Books of Magic.  And Jon brings it back around with his low-down on Spider-Geddon – a book featuring vampire-like bad guys called the inheritors.  (That was kind of a stretch wasn’t it)

Truth be told that’s it for the spooky stuff, but we’ve got some good old superhero action with The Terrifics, and Return of Wolverine, and if I might add a touch of space-opera in Star Wars: Dr. Aphra.  All of those books, while not horror books, do have anxious moments of intense action, scary even.  So don’t count them out till you’ve heard the reviews.

And then there’s the scariest thing of all….. Jon and Charlie.  (insert scream here)

Have a terrifyingly good time.

Enjoy!!!

Comics:
The Terrifics #9
Spider-Geddon #2

Comics Alternative Podcast Episode 87: A Publisher Spotlight on Dynamite’s Gold Key Titles

Same As It Ever Was?

The Two Guys with PhDs (talking about comics) are back with another Publisher Spotlight episode. This time they are focusing on Dynamite Entertainment, specifically the new Gold Key comics that they have been reviving: DynamiteTurok: Dinosaur Hunter, by Greg Pak and Mirko Colak; Magnus: Robot Fighter, by Fred Van Lente and Cory Smith; Solar: Man of the Atom, by Frank J. Barbiere and Joe Bennett; and Doctor Spektor: Master of the Occult, by Mark Waid and Neil Edwards. They discuss the new series in the order in which they’ve been introduced, and the guys even comment on Dynamite’s strategy of staggering releases and not just publishing everything at once, much like Valiant did with their new revived titles a couple of years ago. Andy is more familiar with the original Gold Key comics, at least most of them, than Derek, so when they can they point out the similarities and differences between the recent comics and their earlier manifestations from Gold Key, Valiant, Acclaim, and Dark Horse.  The guys definitely have their preferences — e.g., they love Van Lente’s humor in Magnus, they appreciate both Van Lente and Waid’s send up of reality television, they’re curious where Barbiere is going with Solar’s daughter, and while they’re not big fantasy/Conan fans, they do like what Pak and Colak have done with Turok — and much of this comes out in their discussion. Overall, they really like what Dynamite is doing with their recent revival and look forward to seeing how it unfolds…and how things may all come together (as we are teased in the first issue of Doctor Spektor).

Plus, the guys share listener mail that they’ve recently received. Keep ’em coming!

Comics Alternative Podcast Episode 72: A Review of Six New Comic Book Titles

Comics for Kids with Backhoes

6-ComicsThis week Gene and Derek take a look at six new titles. They begin with a discussion of two new works from Image Comics, the first three issues of Alex + Ada (Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn) and Deadly Class #1 (Rick Remender and Wes Craig). They go into depth on both titles, especially Craig’s art in Deadly Class and the narrative pacing in Alex + Ada, which ultimately leads to a discussion on panel sequencing and story decompression. Next, they look at issues #1-3 of Letter 44, written by Charles Soule with art by Alberto Jiménez Albuquerque (Oni Press). They discuss its unique take on science fiction within the context of recent politics. From there, they turn to recent #1 issues from three other publishers: David Lapham’s Juice Squeezers (Dark Horse Comics), Bill Willingham and Sergio Fernandez DaVilla’s Legenderry (Dynamite Entertainment), and Curse from BOOM! Studies (written by Michael Moreci and Tim Daniel, with art by Riley Rossmo, Colin Lorimer). In this episode, the Two Guys with PhDs are all over the place, moving from all-age comics to Bush-era politics to licensed characters to horror titles to science fiction to steampunk to Reagan’s Morning in America. There’s a lot packed into this show…more bang for your buck!

So enjoy, won’t you?
