Welcome to part 2 of Scaretober, MUAHAHAHAHAHA! This week the boys trade opinions over Marvel Zombies, as in the entire concept (including the Army of Darkness Spin-off), can you survive? There will be blood, and heads will roll, and <insert cliche’ horror tagline> as they also discuss the Horror Genre in books and film, as well as the rise of the Zombie genre. Plus,  Alex hints at a possible European invasion, Sam and Mike discuss their favorite manga (a potential episode?????), and all your usual rants, jokes, and culturally incorrect jabberings! It’s everything you enjoy about the Mild Mannered podcast, plus ZOMBIES! Listen Now!

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!

WE ARE LEGAL NOW! Kicking the 21st episode, the boys have not 1, but 2  special guests for the first part of this 2-Episode special on the topic of Journalism in the comic-book world. The guests, Carolyn (the Not-at-all-Mild-Mannered-Girlfriend to Music Man Mike) and newcomer Matt Koenig (Mild-Mannered-Rapist)  join the boys for a review of Warren Ellis’s Transmetropolitan Volumes  1-3, and yes, Sam will be batshit excited the entire time. Also, we hear about a scheme involving Hulk and Broadway, not to mention the fate of Alex’s Marvel Comics alter-ego in Savage She-Hulk. All this along with the usual (and often unusual) antics this week on the Mild Mannered Podcast!

Plus! Matt Koenig and Sam contribute a piece of Spider-Man: Brand New Day for this week’s Masterpiece Comic Book Theatre!

Why not join us for the second part of our podcast with our review of Greg Pak’s Planet Hulk and World War Hulk crossovers, the Green Goliath gets a little bit milder! Hey, calming down ol’ Jade Jaws is all in a day’s work for your humble podcasters. If you’d care to listen in, you might find that your pulse rate slows a little as well. We aim to please, and also to soothe and Alex plays a game of “Mad Scientist University” with Dr. Sivana and Victor von Doom!

And we start off this half with Masterpiece Comic Book Theatre–taken this week from the enticingly masculine pages of J. Michael Straczynski’s Thor–only on the Mild Mannered Podcast!
