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 #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.”
