You won’t believe it, but the boys are officially off Skype and back to normal recordings! Take that, Void! And even better, Mild Mannered Music Man Mike (alliteration?) rejoins to reunite the trio as they dive deep into the world of Alias, an alternative Marvel comic simply fraught with metaphors, noir influences and the word “motherfucker.”

Also, they take time to extract reviews from Mike on the webcomics he viewed under meds, and Sam explains his love/hate relationship with Mark Millar and particularly his work on Ultimate X-Men. What is Alex’s Pick of the Week? What does Sam insist he’s picked in his heart of hearts? All this and more this week, tune in and enjoy!

Episode #3 – House Of M(other’s Day)

30 05 2009

It was Mother’s Day around the time of our third podcast, so we decided to peruse Marvel’s epic event comic about a mother’s love for her imaginary kids. It’s the “House of M” trade paperback, by Brian Michael Bendis and Olivier Coipel. Our verdict? Listen to the damn podcast and find out.

We also discuss fun times had with mindless butchery in the “X Men Origins Wolverine” video game, gently mock “Doctor Who Classics,” and investigate Jimmy Olsen’s brief stint as a polygamist in a Masterpiece Comic Book Theatre skit taken from “The Amazing Transformations of Jimmy Olsen.”
