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!

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 #18 – Mild Mannered Slices of Life

26 08 2009

It’s Special Treat Week again, as we flip everything all topsy-turvy to bring you a buffet–a veritable smorgasbord if you will–of webcomics reviews! Though sadly missing Mike the Mild Mannered Music Man, Alex and Sam wade through a pile of each others’ favorite webcomics, keepin’ it short and pithy all the way. Who is Charles Christopher and why is he so abominable? What makes “A Softer World” so damned creepy? And just how much does Sam like awkward female protagonists, anyway? All of the answers and more lie in wait for you!

And you better not miss our upcoming very special feature–highlights from Alex’s three interviews with Bobby Timony of Twin Comics, Scott Weinstein of After School Agent and Porter Mason, the cartoonist behind “Bassist Wanted.” You can’t find this stuff anywhere but here! Check it out!
