Deconstructing Comics #471: “Crumb” and “Punk Rock Jesus”

Crumb
Punk Rock Jesus

Tim and Kumar meet in person for the first time! This calls for a podcast, but… what to review? We discuss the movie Crumb, which features not only the expected discussion of R. Crumb’s work (including an objective look at the question of whether some of the … discomfiting subjects of his work should really have been published as “art”), but also a fascinating portrait of the dysfunctional family he grew up in.

Then, Tim and Brandon clash over Sean Murphy’s Punk Rock Jesus, in which a former Irish Republican Army member acts as a bodyguard in a reality show claiming to be creating the clone of Jesus Christ. Is it objective and well-written, or a promo brochure for atheism?

sidekick76

 

It’s number 76 folks!!!

Bringing it bad to our original MO we have a brand new sidekick for this episode! The new sidekick explains how he thought Dan was a total loser before getting him into comic books.

The usual news and awesomeness is discussed by the sidekicks and Bones explains his new comic speculative schemes before we review the final issue of Punk Rock Jesus – will it be all they hoped for? Harvest, Thunderbolts #1, Daredevil: End of Days and Superior Spider-Man #1

Secrets and lies gets a new twist in honour of Punk Rock Jesus and in an attempt to close the gap, Dan brings his own quiz!

Sidekickcast Episode #72 – No Super Heroes, No B.S., Just Jesus Christ

The original sidekicks bum-rush the geek behaviour this episode with the usual japery you’ve come to X-pect!

After discussing the Marvel Now! teasers and giving their guesses on what’s to come they touch on some Batman game news and move on to the ol’ fave Stack attack in a Number 1-o-rama, where they dismantle, (from Vertigo) Punk Rock Jesus #1, (from Image) Revivial #1 & Harvest #1 and (from Marvel) Hawkeye #1.

Then Bones tests the sub-standard geek knowledge once again in the veritable mastermind quiz-show-with-a-twist Secrets and Lies. Will Dan clamber back up for the lower rungs of the geek division? Listen to find out!

Finally, Dan takes the second part of his journey through the Holy Western that is Preacher. Not to mention the boys playing parts of a chosen passage from the book in “Preacher Theatre”.

If all this aint enough humdingin’ goodness just stay tuned for the awesome outtakes where the boys prove that 72 episodes just isn’t enough to get there Shiz together…
