432: Remy LeBeau, Your Mama's a Pot of Gumbo!
/

This Week, for our annual We Put Up a Mother’s Day Episode a Week or More Late spectacular, we’re thinking about some moms that haven’t really gotten the spotlight. What’s The Question’s relationship with his mother? What about Doctor Doom? Puck? What is Cyclops’s mom’s name, even? Who’s the best mom in comics, and who’s the absolute worst? All that, and Ma Hunkel, AND The Cyclone Kids. But NO SCRIBBLY.

Hey, let’s put all that structure aside for an episode, and just relax by the fire and have a friendly chat about comics. Doesn’t that sound nice?

We discuss comic runs that just didn’t do right by their character or concept: Merk compares the new wave of Conan comics from Titan coming off Conan being a friggin’ Avenger over at Marvel, Kyle mourns for the lost potential in the Krakoan era and the wacky island hijinx so suddenly torn from us, and Bry gripes about the current status of Spider-Man (again!?) as we get into the modern habit of abrupt status-quo changes, relaunches, and gimmicks in superhero titles.

Aside from the X-Men and Deadpool and everyone’s fave Kraven, we’re looking at a relative comic-media drought for 2024. Does this signal the end of superhero dominance in Hollywood? Are we just getting a much-needed breather? Or is a bigger shift in the movie business brewing? (I mean, we don’t know, we’re indie comics podcasters, sheesh.)

All this and more! Including talking about the things we don’t have more time to talk about!? What an episode!

Newsflash for April 29, 2024

Hear ye, hear ye! DC vs Marvel Omnibus’s wraparound cover isn’t too great! Jim Lee’s a busy guy, so it’s cool, but, y’know!

Additional hear ye! Embracer Group, which bought Dark Horse a few years ago, embraced too much, and exploded into smaller groups!
Hear this, now! Mike Mignola and Ben Stenbeck are making a whole new ongoing universe of things, folklore-ish and spooky, so that’ll be fun!
Hey ye, hear here: Post Malone and Michael Bay are teaming up to make something about a monster truck, I don’t know, even I stopped paying attention halfway through.
Finally, hearily, ye-ye: Kraven delayed, dozens dismayed.

Meanwhile, at a different while! This week, we’re talking about our favourite comics that take places with familiar characters in unfamiliar times. Just what happens when super heroes start showing up hundreds of years ahead of schedule? What else causes cancer that Spider-Man 2099 didn’t warn us about when he travelled back to 1995? Just how much time is there between Conan, Kull, and Solomon Kane? Find the answer to none of these questions, plus and intriguing Read This Now for the new Flash ongoing, in this timely episode!

Comics and movies! Movies and comics! Superheroes from comics and movies have been entrenched in pop culture as a mainstay for quite a while now (some say too long). But what about the superhero movies that AREN’T based on comics?
What about superhero like films that started as films, based on nothing previously?
Super. Push. Unbreakable. Darkman. And Kyle’s favourite Meteor Man! It’s the meatiest!
It all started with the idea of watching Orgazmo together…… and it went downhill from there….

To us, our listeners! X-Men ’97’s first season is about halfway over and there’s been a lot to discuss. So let’s do that! We dig into the first four episodes of the nostalgic revival cartoon, and while we all enjoyed it, we have some very different takes on the show. How well does it adapt the comics’ extensive, and often lengthy, source material into a much shorter runtime? Does the new “look” and animation style hold up to the old show, and to other animated series running today? How well do the returning cast and new recruits pick up where the old show left off? And of course a tangent leads us to discuss whether or not Wolverine’s claws could possibly be sterile (maybe there’s a little purel dispenser in there). And plenty more!

But that’s not all, we’ve got some comics to talk about! Namely, the new “Savage Sword of Conan” and “Bat-Man: First Knight”! And they’re both in an oversized magazine format? What’re the odds??

It’s an all-Easter Dramatic Read triple feature! Uh, sort of? If the Easter Bunny and/or Jesus Christ appear, we say it counts. So join us as we bring the printed page to audio life! First up, “Big” Ethel Muggs learns how to go from boy-crazy to Van-Jesus-crazy in an Al Hartley licensed Archie tale from Spire Christian Comics! A somehow code-approved DC horror tale from UNEXPECTED pits some chocolate-obsessed kids against a deeply unsettling Easter Bunny. And Ghost Rider goes against Satan himself without a prayer… but perhaps a friend in a cool blue jacket can help? Maybe he’s a certain messiah, maybe he owns a van, maybe Comics Jesus is always with us after all??

We’ve got a real Beast Wars situation on our hands! Okay, so maybe not a *real* Beast Wars situation, what with the no Transformers to speak of, but more of a lower case beast wars situation. These beasts, they be a-warrin’! This week, March Madness returns with an animal-themed twist! Who’s going to be king of the jungle? It’s going to be better than that new Godzilla movie, but probably not as good as the Godzilla movie from a few months ago, because, like, that one won an Oscar? That’s pretty neat.

But first! Merk has a brand new card game for us to play, and by brand new, I mean it’s basically a comic book version of that card game A**hole. Which means it’s going to be great, because that game’s almost as good as that Godzilla movie! The good one, the Oscar one.
