194: It Takes a Papa Smurf to Build a Village

Ryan Mackett, the TBay Movie Guy, joins us once again! In honour of Father’s Day, we celebrate all the best dads and father figures in comics – your Uncle Bens, your Pa Kents, and all the other Dads and Honourary Dads that inspire us to be our best selves and tell us to stop screwin’ around with the thermostat, dammit. And there may be a Dad Quiz! That’s right: DAD QUIZ!

But first, we dive into the news (and inevitable controversy) of Robert Pattinson’s casting as Batman, and then submit Mr. Mackett to a barrage of random questions! Things get personal, we connect, it’s all very lovely.

193: Keith David as Galactus – I want Keith David Wearing a Helmet

It’s a LIGHTNING ROUND episode! What does that mean? That means we have a number of quick short topics & games & shenanigans that we barrel through, and this week we do that with a returning guest, Mr Ryan Mackett, artist, movie reviewer, and lover of superman and sharks (check out his stuff here!) ! What topics & games you ask? As Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider, what radioactive animal bites you, and what happens? What character would you like to write a character defining arc for ( a la Grant Morrisson X-Men)? We do a crazy round of fantasy casting actors into dream (and at times nightmare) roles in comicdom. All that and a game of 1991 Marvel Trading Cards-a card is picked and you have to argue a ridiculous viewpoint for that character, ie-Why would Wonder Man make an amazing US President? All that and a bag o’ chips, or is it just a bag o’ chips? Listen and decide, shrewd believers!
