Episode #18 – Mild Mannered Slices of Life

26 08 2009

It’s Special Treat Week again, as we flip everything all topsy-turvy to bring you a buffet–a veritable smorgasbord if you will–of webcomics reviews! Though sadly missing Mike the Mild Mannered Music Man, Alex and Sam wade through a pile of each others’ favorite webcomics, keepin’ it short and pithy all the way. Who is Charles Christopher and why is he so abominable? What makes “A Softer World” so damned creepy? And just how much does Sam like awkward female protagonists, anyway? All of the answers and more lie in wait for you!

And you better not miss our upcoming very special feature–highlights from Alex’s three interviews with Bobby Timony of Twin Comics, Scott Weinstein of After School Agent and Porter Mason, the cartoonist behind “Bassist Wanted.” You can’t find this stuff anywhere but here! Check it out!

Episode #17 – 100 Podcasts (minus 83)

19 08 2009

100-bulletsThis week, the mild-mannered team reunites as a whole as they give you the highs and lows of the first two volumes of Brian Azzarello’s 100 Bullets, but try not to get caught in the crossfire! Also, special guest Audrey gives us a review of her expedition to Comic-Con 09′ while the boys try to hold back their tears and envy. There will also be more attacks on Jeff Loeb (but respect given to Batman Hush), Alex confesses a dream involving Adam West, a quick shout-out to the hit manga One Piece, and the boys praise/rant about their zany weeks (which will include injuries, encounters, and,you guessed it, comics!)

(Note: The answer is probably “yes to all.”) Tune in and discover the answers for yourself!

This week, the mild-mannered podcasters deliver a powerful review of Brian K. Vaughn’s Runaways, the story of 6 kids who find out their parents are super-villains… and Run Away (But obviously it isn’t as simple as that)! Also this week, the latest installment of “Sam Bitches a lot” involving Jesus Christ: In the Name of the Gun, the scariest trades of the week (most flesh/blood/soul/vampires/werefolf comics combined in a single week!), Alex describes his new love for Gotham Central, and Mike gives a quick look at Neil Gaiman’s Batman: Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader!

But wait! Let’s not forget our newest piece of Masterpiece Comic Book Theatre with a reading from Eric Powell’s The Goon!
