The Two Guys with PhDs (Talking about Comics) are back with another roundtable discussion, and this time the topic is licensed comics. Joining them again are their podcasting pals, John Mayo from The Comic Book Page and Chris Marshall from Collected Comics Library. Springing from Chris’s suggestion that they talk about licensed properties — and fostered by Andy’s uncanny fascination with ROM and The Micronauts — the four comics dudes cover a wide swath of pop culture history regarding the trans-media nature of certain properties. There’s a lot to talk about with this topic, and the guys try to get as much in as they can. Along the way they discuss comic-book manifestations of Star Trek, Star Wars, G. I. Joe, My Little Pony, Doctor Who, MacGyver, The Bionic Man, Doc Savage, The Spirit, The Monkees, various Disney properties, and personality-based comics such those published on The Beatles, Bob Hope, and Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis (one of Derek’s favorites). The four guys all highlight their favorite licensed titles, and they even propose a few new possibilities as a sort of wish list.
This week’s incidental music is brought to you by
Doctor Who: Original Television Soundtrack,
TV’s Greatest Hits, Vol. 1, and The Monkees’ Missing Links, Vol. 3
This week is a more free-form show. The Freaks discuss trailers for Frank Miller’s “The Spirit”, “TR2N”,”Terminator: Salvation” and a remake of “The Day The Earth Stood Still”. Chris throws a fit about garage sale etiquette and Scott invents the phrase “hobby raping”. Add some Firesign Theatre, the Justice League roll call, and a trip to the Freak Museum and you can call it a show. The song featured today in the Freak Museum is “Our Song” by Roger Waters from the soundtrack to the movie “The Body”.
