Episode #22 – MMP in the DMZ (Adventures in Journalism Special Part II)

21 09 2009


Welcome to Part 2 of our special comic-book topic of Journalism in Comic Books! To conclude our special event, we go over Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli’s DMZ, a shocking post-9/11 fictional piece with some of the heaviest material yet, not to mention some heavy critique from us! Plus, we give quick reviews of some of this year’s new hit games; including Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, Dissidia: Final Fantasy, Scribblenauts, and a second look at Batman: Arkham Asylum! There will be laughs, insensitive jokes, cranky podcasters, memorable buffoonery, and much much more this week on the Mild-Mannered Podcast!

This week’s installment of Masterpiece Comic-Book Theatre also contributes to Journalism by revisiting Superman: The Amazing Transformations of Jimmy Olsen, with Alex himself reprising the title role! Enjoy!

Episode #13 – Slice of Mild-Mannered Life

23 07 2009


This week the podcasters ( along with a couple of special guests) venture into reviewing Brian Wood and Ryan Kelly’s independent comic Local, and debate amongst themselves their opinions and how they connect to this lovingly crafted “Slice-o-life” work. We also go over Alex’s misadventures of the week, Mike’s ever-increasing love for Neil Gaiman, sing a few show tunes about polygamy, and much more!

Be excited! For this week’s Masterpiece Comic Book Theatre will present “LOCKJAW AND THE PET AVENGERS!!”
