Last time we looked at the first of five comics concepts on Irrational Comics’ “PITCH” page. This time, we get some answers about exactly how these 12-page teasers came to be, and critique two more of them: “Good or Dead” (about a zombie apocalypse in Singapore) by Louis Png, and “Solus” (about a monster on a rampage in a spacecraft) by Dan Amariles.
Reviews: Black Panther Vol 6 #1, Empress #1, The Fix #1, Grizzly Shark #1, Fear the Walking Dead
Jimmy is joined in studio by good pal/animator Jim Batt. They discuss his awesome Kickstarter project with Neil Gaiman. They also chat about the Star Wars: Rogue One trailer as well as the new Suicide Squad one. Jimmy talks about a couple of deaths on big TV shows last week but stays mostly spoiler-free. News includes: Gerard Way gets new comic imprint at DC called Young Animal, Image Expo announces a slew of new comic projects, Dark Horse is bringing Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens, Image announces Creators for Creators initiative, Garth Ennis/Darick Robertson’s The Boys is becoming a live action show on Cinemax, Freeform is developing a Cloak and Dagger series, Archie is publishing a new Betty and Veronica series along with a new Kevin Keller series, and Animaniacs is finally on Netflix!

The tears of the world are a constant quantity. For each one who begins to weep somewhere else another stops. The same is true of the laugh.
Dave, John and Brad just killing time till this weeks’ guest shows up, spoilers he doesn’t! The guys talk Ant-Man, Terminator, Suicide Squad and Prometheus. Somehow the also get onto the topic of the speculator market from the 90’s. And Dave predicts that after Marvel Phase 3 completes Disney will release the “Special Edition” versions of all the Marvel movies. We can’t wait! So sit back and enjoy us waiting on Rusty!
The Wake gives us a nautical based story with strong characters and an intriguing mysterious creature that is terrorizing mankind. We look deeply at the ending of the story and do our best to explain some of the unclear elements and discuss the characters, science and mythology woven into this tale.
This week you get 2 repeat guests for the price of one! That’s right Dave and John this week sit down with artist Steve Scott and writer James Maddox as they tell us all about their very first collaborative project Blue Nemesis, a new graphic novel with a classic Sci-Fi/Horror feel to it. These 2 are always great guests and when you get them together it makes for a really great episode. We hope you enjoy!
This is it! Not only is this the first episode of Trentus Magnus Punches Reality to come out via the Two True Freaks feed but it’s also the next installment of The Big Book Report. This time out, Magnus is joined by Arthur Ratnik to discuss The Big Book of Conspiracies. The assassination of John F. Kennedy, UFO’s landing in Roswell, MK Ultra, Manchurian Candidates, mind control, election-rigging, coup d’etat, secret moon colonies, faked moon landings, Nazis in America, black helicopters, Jim Morrison faking his death and so much more fill up all three hours of this conspiracy theory-fueled insanity!

To finish off Superman’s Birthday, Micheal and Andrew look at CBR’s top 75 Superman stories, then delve into reader feedback before two more comics that don’t have super heroes in them. Well, kind of. ALIENS: EARTH ANGEL and PLANETARY #3. I’m pretty sure PLANETARY has a super hero in it…
In a very special episode of the Freak Files, Scott Gardner and Chris Honeywell welcome legendary comics artist PAT BRODERICK – who will be talking about the origins of his ancient astronauts saga NIBIRU – AND THE LEGEND OF THE ANNUNAKI, based on 250,000 years of ancient Sumerian texts and now available as a gorgeously illustrated web comic! It’s a rollicking 2 hours that covers just about everything – politics – religion – chemtrails – asteroids – and even *GASP* COMIC BOOKS! It’s a no-holds-barred conversation recorded in the wee hours of the morning – the perfect time for a Freak Files! You can also chart the progress of Nibiru by following Pat Broderick on Facebook!
Kevin apparently not only REALLY loves cake but wants to enjoy eating it too. Superman is not married anymore and Kevin loses his shit. Despite the potential of stories coming, if the past he has come to love did not happen, superman does not happen. Which is wrong, but okay as kevin owns his wrongness. A little bit of trek and dune and star wars is discussed, as is Jean Claude Van Dam and the greatness that is Time Cop. We delve into Alien and planet of the apes slightly but then ram back into comics with Jonah Hex, The Outsider, Project Superman, Schism, The Iron Age and Frankenstein and the Creatures of the Unknown. Come Enjoy as we regale the stories of the greatest character actor of all time, Fred Berry.
