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!

This week, we got a one-two punch special;  we will discuss/debate/bicker over the Best, the Worst, and the Weirdest Fathers and Fatherly figures of comic books. You’ll find out why we think Uncle Ben is unquestionably great  while Magneto and General Ross are just plain abysmal. But wait, there’s more! We top off the show with Deadpool Appreciation Week, where we will (individually) review 3 different perspectives of the famous “Merc with a Mouth”. Is your favorite Deadpool comic/trade being reviewed? We don’t know! You’ll have to tune in and find out!

Plus, a special message to Liu Kang of “Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe,” Alex’s new favorite writer, the most perfect thing ever said in a Green Goblin voice, and a special mission for all you wonderful listeners! We’ve got all of that and more on this week’s episode!

Episode #5 – Popgun Popped A Cap In Our Podcast

30 05 2009

And so we come to the end of our archive, with our lengthy review of Popgun Vol.1, “a graphic mix tape” edited by Mark Andrew Smith and Joe Keatinge. This was our first long-distance podcast, so in between the audio hiccups, we discussed Alex’s comic book bender in New York City, Sam gushed over the Batman: Mad Love hardcover edition, and Mike the Mild Mannered Thespian delivered a chilling performance of Norman Osborn’s barely-sane monologue in Warren Ellis’s Thunderbolts #120 for Masterpiece Comic Book Theatre.
