Alternate Reality – Episode 401


Alternate Reality – Episode #401

The boys wind down the Halloween season by talking about some scary book this week…… Well, kind of.  I mean Jon’s talking about the Halloween specials Dynamite put out for both Red Sonja and Vampirella.  Charlie’s keeping things supernatural with Books of Magic.  And Jon brings it back around with his low-down on Spider-Geddon – a book featuring vampire-like bad guys called the inheritors.  (That was kind of a stretch wasn’t it)

Truth be told that’s it for the spooky stuff, but we’ve got some good old superhero action with The Terrifics, and Return of Wolverine, and if I might add a touch of space-opera in Star Wars: Dr. Aphra.  All of those books, while not horror books, do have anxious moments of intense action, scary even.  So don’t count them out till you’ve heard the reviews.

And then there’s the scariest thing of all….. Jon and Charlie.  (insert scream here)

Have a terrifyingly good time.

Enjoy!!!

Alternate Reality – Episode 397

Alternate Reality – Episode #397

All in all, it’s starting to feel a little like autumn.  The days are getting a little shorter, it’s still warm outside but the evenings aren’t as bad.  Labor Day will be on us next week, and not long after that the leaves will start to turn colors.  We’re starting to look forward to harvest, pumpkins, trick-or-treat, and scary tales.

Scary things are the theme this week as we’re talking werewolves.  But not just werewolves, the boys also talk about what makes Batman the biggest boogie-man in the dark.  The Justice League are busy fighting things that go bump in the night in JLA Dark.  Speaking of the dark, it doesn’t get much darker that the cold unfeeling heart of Darth Vader.  Jon and Charlie talk about what makes him tick in last week’s issue.

Taken together it’s a spook-tacular warm up to what’s bound to be an excellent Halloween season.

Enjoy!!!

Alternate Reality – Episode 395

Alternate Reality – Episode #395

After a week off Jon and Charlie are back with another jam-packed episode.  We’re covering two weeks’ worth of books tonight.  The boys start off with a very thoughtful email from longtime friend of the show Matthew Kaiser.  Then they go thought a bevy of books from Darth Vader to Justice League and everything in between.

Next, we spend some time talking about the latest Kickstarter project from Jimmy Palmiotti and they guys and girls over at Paperfilms.  This new project is a mature graphic novel featuring nudity, sex, guns, violence, and death.  What’s not to love?  This in-your-face adventure called “Killing Time in America” was a fantastic read and Jon gives us a glimpse of what makes the book so special.

Lastly Jon and Charlie talk about San Diego Comic Con, all the movie trailers that came out, as well as DC’s new steaming service.

It’s a huge Elvis themed rocking good time on the week’s Alternate Reality,…. Enjoy!!!
