And Lo, There Shall Come…An Answering!
For most of you, anyway. I fully confess Graeme and I did punt on a few questions that were either complex enough to take up a full podcast at a later date, or so good that it would require better men than us to answer it. (Ah, yes: the old “It’s not you, Listener Question, it’s us” strategy–never leave home without it.)
Anyway, as you might imagine with so many exceptional inquiries, it would take us a while to answer them–and of course us being us, we’re going to go egregiously off-topic, right?–so, yeah. Two hours and forty minutes is what we’ve got for you. We talk so long Graeme turns into The Lord of the Flies at the end, and if I was less tired, I could make some sort of joke about me having the conch/gronch William Golding/James Stokoe free association/condo association…but obviously I am far, far too tired.
So lemme just say: we talk scheduling and artistic teams on DC; new 52 titles and teams we would like to see; The New 52: Threat or Menace?; Marvel movies and costumes in superhero movies; alternative sexual relationships in comics; 2000 AD and Shonen Jump Alpha; our favorite books of the 80s; a moment in Defenders #3 I totally blew past; J.M. DeMatteis‘ run on The Defenders; The Shadow, The Red Circle, Milestone and other commandeered characters; X-Men franchises vs. Teen Titans franchises; speculation over the changes in the Marvel dancecard; real world landmarks in imaginary worlds; our favorite Superman; Dr. Who; John Byrne’s Fantastic Four; Rick Jones; Downton Abbey comics; the Shooterverse and, as you’re probably used to by now, much, much more.
iTunes? Hopefully. Here? Most definitely:
Thanks for your patience with us and, as always, we hope you enjoy!
