Comics Alternative, On Location: The March Visit to Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find

How Much Is Too Much?

For the March on-location recording at Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find in Charlotte, NC, the topic of discussion is comics adapted into movies and television series (especially superhero properties), and if we’re about to reach the point of oversaturation. Joining Derek in the conversation are shop customers Zyg, Jack, Jesse, Erica, and Christian. All of them are fans of superhero film and TV, and each brings a unique perspective to the discussion. And, as expected, everyone varies in their opinions on how much is too much when it comes to superhero adaptations. Among the various movies and series they discuss are Black Panther, the Iron Man seriesWatchmen, The CrowJustice League, Tim Burton’s Batman, Gotham, the various Netflix series, and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. They also talk about non-superhero comics adaptations such as LuciferiZombie, Ghost World, and, of course, The Walking Dead. And toward the end of their conversation, everyone expresses her or his own wish list of other properties that could be adapted into television series or films.

Comics Alternative Kickstarter: The Not So Golden Age #2

Super?

This weekend Derek talks with Joseph Freistuhler about his current Kickstarter project, The Not So Gold Age #2. This parody of the superhero genre is actually a webcomic, the first physical issue of which Joseph and his co-creator Phil Buck successfully Kickstarted back in 2016. How they’re back to bring the second issue into paper existence.

The Not So Golden Age is the story of several washed up, dysfunctional superheroes. They were once the premier heroes of their generation, but having been unused for so long, they’re relegated to the dreaded public domain. As a result, they now reside in a trailer park outside of Reno, Nevada. That happens.

As Derek’s talk with Joseph reveals, this is a project steeped in humor, from the narrative itself to the mock ads that populate the insides. As the writer reveals upfront in his Kickstarter disclaimer, “This comic may not actually be the best comic you will ever read. However, it is the best comic book my mother will ever read!”

So please, join Joseph’s mother in enjoying the warm, nougaty, comics-filled goodness of The Not So Golden Age by backing the printing of the second issue! You’ll be glad you did.

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 51: Not So Christmas Cheer

christmas-jla

Jim and Eric get together the day after Christmas and they are not in a jolly mood.  Maybe they didn’t get the presents they wanted or they are still reeling from last week’s “Dildo Incident”, but they certainly don’t agree much.  Eric gives a sort of update on Stinky Jamie and Jim just wants to end it all.  They do manage to talk about a ton of books and continue being the #hardestworkingguysinpodcasting.  Enjoy!

Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 50: What a Dildo!

maxresdefault (1)

It’s Star Wars weekend so Jim and Eric talk…DC Comics.  Yep, they stick with their mission statement and talk about every DC Comics comic book that came out this week.  The podcast may be filled with Superman, Batman, and the Justice League, but Eric’s girlfriend steals the show with her podcast debut and it’s a doozy.  In fact, it literally took Jim’s breath (and ability to speak) away.  We all hope that Eric is still alive and that you all enjoy the show.
