Radio Free Asgard 283

Hey, we’re here this week too! In between episodes of me packing for my upcoming move, we’re looking at Thor v.2  #28, in which our hero and the Warriors Three do some New York City sight-seeing, Sif does some ruling, the Wrecker and his Wrecking Crew hang around in a cheap motel… in costume… and someone offers to “polish Thor’s helmet”…if you know what I mean… Don’t miss it!

Radio Free Asgard 282

It’s Epsiode 282 Redux, as we recover from the Great HD Crash of ’17! In this episode we cover The Mighty Thor (v.2) #27, as Jurgens, Larsen, and Janson give us the second half of the Absorbing Man story! It’s a slug fest in a crumbling tenement with Jane Foster and Titania’s lives in the balance!

Radio Free Asgard 281

This week we’re back to the start of the millennium with Thor v2 #26! The Absorbing Man is back! And he needs a doctor! Sif has *really* long fingers, Odin falls alseep again, Keith Kinkaid comes back long enough to be smacked in the face with a ball & chain! RFA! It’s what the doctor ordered!

Savage FINcast – Episode: 33: BRAPPA-LORTCH!

Episode33

Trouble is brewing deep beneath the planet’s crust in this latest episode of the SAVAGE FINCAST. Craig returns from his vacation in the Canadian badlands just in time to join Jim and Raven in tackling Savage Dragon 198. Together they discuss the earth shaking implications of Erik Larsen’s new Savage Dragon movie script and speculate what a Savage Dragon movie might look like. While inside the latest issue of the comic series, the Fincasters get hype about the Bean, sound effects, Maxine, and the miracle of twice-up artwork. Last but certainly not least, the episode is wrapped up with discussion about the superb Vanguard and Funnies backups!

This week it’s Snorri vs. Stan as we learn a valuable lesson from the tale of Odin & Billing’s Daughter, and then we shift gears dramatically as we cover The Mighty Thor #385, in which Thor takes on The Hulk! and yes… there is tree murder!

Savage FINcast – Episode 29: Twice Up!

Episode29

Twice up with a side of backup story, please! That’s how we like our Savage Dragon!

Just when you think Erik Larsen has run out of ways to impress you, he pulls out his latest and greatest artistic experiment! Larsen’s most recent endeavor finds him drawing the pages to issue #194 on much larger art boards (12.5″ x 18.5″), and the outcome is absolutely breathtaking! The two double-page splashes are worth the price of admission alone! After picking their collective jaws off of the ground, Jim, Craig, and Raven gush about the overall greatness of this issue. Although the FINcasters thought that issue #193 was a misstep, issue #194 has rebounded as an issue that could be placed in the best-of-the-best territory! Stunning art, a moving story, over-the-top fisticuffs, enjoyable backup features, and the best letters column in the business—this is Savage Dragon at the top of it’s game. You’ve read it, so can you blame us for raving about it?
