Wayne’s Comics Podcast #235 With Joseph Bradford, Mike Johnson And Ryan Parrott

Wayne Hall, Wayne’s Comics, TikiGod Comics, Joseph Bradford, Angeli Arbitrium, Elle Moonbeard, Seekers of Shine, Star Trek, Mike Johnson, Ryan Parrott, Manifest Destiny, Klingons, Enterprise, crossover, Kickstarter, IDW Publishing, Captain Kirk, Spock,

It’s another double-header episode this week! First up is Joseph Bradford from TikiGod Comics, creator of Angeli Arbitrium and Elle Moonbeard and the Seekers of Shine. He’s got a Kickstarter campaign happening now for that first title coming out in trade paperback, and you can support it by going to this link today! Here’s the book’s description: “An angel with her chosen, a man with a tarnished soul, a young woman with loss in her heart, and a boy with the capacity to change the world, find each other on the dusty road. They are dragged into a fight older then creation and are given the choice we all have. To fight for good or lay down to evil.” Be sure to support this great Indie comic today!

Then we warp where this podcast has never gone before, chatting with Mike Johnson and Ryan Parrott, creators of Star Trek: Manifest Destiny among other great Trek comics coming from IDW Publishing! We talk about how the ongoing Star Trek series is coming to an end with issue #60, but never fear – news of more Trek coming from IDW will be released soon, likely at this year’s San Diego Comic Con! We chat about the fabulous Trek crossovers, about what they’re each working on, and get into some Trek talk, of course! Be sure not to miss it! This interview begins at 29:29 into the episode!

Two True Freaks! Episode 270 – Star Trek Monthly Monday #42

0d9c

Due to a FREAK TRANSPORTER ACCIDENT, the CLASSIC Trek and TNG Monthly Monday formats have been melded together into one CHERON-LIKE episode!

This month, The Freaks are joined by one of their favorite guests – Mike “Bibliomike” Poteet!  The luck of the draw has brought two extremely similar episodes together — very much like that old Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup commercial…

Anyway, first up is the Classic Trek episode COURT MARTIAL — where Kirk gets embroiled in a courtroom drama, but STILL gets time to mete out a few roundhouses!

Then, BEATEN AND SOBBING, The Freaks and special guest take on the BIG question – “Is Data People or just a WALKING TOASTER?” — in the Next Generation episode MEASURE OF A MAN.

Yes, that’s right, it’s an episode chock full o’ PHILOSOPHY AND GRAVITAS!  It’s a regular Masterpiece Theatre up in here!

F BombCast 149: The actual El Guapo

We all have an El Gualpo to face, it just so happens that ours is the actual El Guapo. That is right folks, the first ten minutes of the show are TJ and Kevin reciting Three Amigos quotes and laughing about them. You know because our comic timing and ability to do them will entertain you just as much as Steve and Chevy. Spock and the Whales are discussed in length, and TJ actually read some comics. Surprise, Surprise they were DC. Animal Man 5, Aquaman 5, and Batman 5 are all discussed as well as who the real hero of the Flash is. Kevin talks some Marvel but do any of you really give a shit? Exactly! Enjoy.

Two True Freaks! Episode 195 – Star Trek Monthly Monday #31: 1701 Edition

0d9c

This Month, The Freaks delve into the dreaded THIRD SEASON of the Original STAR TREK television series for the classic episode “Whom Gods Destroy”.

Apparently, Garth of Izar has gone a few crystals short of a chandelier and decided to start chewing up the scenery, but don’t worry — SHATNER WILL NOT BE OUTDONE!  Kirk fits ensue!

Then – in DC Comics’ Star Trek – it’s ROMULANS VS A TEN-SPEED BICYCLE!  No lie.  Nimoy flips everyone off, somehow Dolly Parton shows up, and Scott and Chris do a number on Best Buy — thus negating another potential advertising deal.  YIKES!

Put it in your MP3 player and TURN UP THE KIRK!

Two True Freaks! Episode 190 – Star Trek Monthly Monday #30: 1701 Edition

0d9c

IT’S ON! In this month’s episode the Freaks watch “Errand Of Mercy”! Finally it looks like the Federation and the Klingon Empire get to duke it out! The only thing standing between peace and all-out war are a group of wussy pacifists. They couldn’t possibly mess things up,could they? Then things get weird. Giant, idiotic bugs and gun-toting kitty cats figure into the DC Comics part of this show and you know what? Maybe Chris and Scott are mellowing in their old age, but it wasn’t that bad!

Put it in your MP3 player and TURN UP THE KIRK!

Two True Freaks! Episode 178 – Star Trek Monthly Monday #28 NCC-1701

0d9c

Comb your hair and put your boots on! It’s time for CLASSIC TREK! This month, The Freaks examine the classic episode “WINK OF AN EYE” in which Kirk’s metabolism is rocketed into hummingbird speed with some tampered-with space Starbucks! Then it’s on to the DC Comics series with Spock’s cheesy pseudo-Freudian nightmare followed by the triumphant return of REDJAC! He may still have the voice of Piglet, but this time he’s bigger, badder, and OUT FOR REVENGE! Revenge on who? Who do you think?

Two True Freaks! Episode 174 – Star Trek Monthly Monday #27

0d9c

In a very funny episode of ‘Star Trek Monthly Monday’, The Freaks make some lemonade from some space lemons, Capt. Kirk wields a space dildo in “What Are Little Girls Made Of?”, we see the latest model of the Christopher Pikemobile in “Too Short A Season”, and Sulu subdues a foe using (for real, not kidding) chopsticks and a Transformer!! Space racism? You Betcha! Also: Puppet Lurch, people thrown into bottomless pits, styrofoam caves, and absolutely NO Wesely Crusher! Plus – as a Special Bonus – BLUEGRASS BONES!

Two True Freaks! Episode 160 – Star Trek ’09 – A Two True Freaks Movie Commentary

0d9c

In the first of a trifecta of movie commentaries, the Freaks take on JJ Abram’s Star Trek from 2009. Hear from moment to moment what the Freaks love and hate about this “re-imagining” or whatever the hell you call it, of the original Trek crew. Don’t expect them to take a dump on it Dark Knight style, but this is no love-in, either – the Freaks do have some serious issues with this one. So sit back, pop in your DVD of Trek ’09 and listen to the Freaks eat, gripe, burp and sometimes even praise their way through this blockbuster hit – all in front of a live audience of Scott’s kids!

Two True Freaks! Episode 156 – Star Trek Monthly Monday #26

0d9c

In an unorthodox episode, instead of their usual insightful analysis, the Freaks do an AUDIO COMMENTARY for TWO, count ’em, TWO episodes of Trek! First off, Kirk gets creepy with a 300 year-old underage girl in “Miri” – Then, it’s more holodeck hijinks in the Next Generation in “11001001” where Number One tries to “make it so” with a lovely hologram! Hear what the Freaks have to say as you watch along! Of course, the show wouldn’t be complete without a DC Star Trek comic and this month we have issue 19, written by Walter Koenig himself!
