168: Stop Trying to Make Sage Happen

This week we’re talking about “pet characters”! Whether it’s the writer’s own creation or just one they’re a fan of, some writers and artists keep going back to the same characters: Peter David loves Marlo Chandler, Brian Michael Bendis loves Luke Cage, Todd McFarlane loves capes, and Chris Claremont just can’t quit you, Sage!

Also: we touch on the sad, sudden passing of legendary Batman artist Norm Breyfogle, try to keep up with comic movie release date musical chairs, and play a fun new game with our trusty deck of 1991 Marvel trading cards!

162: Do the Merk!

No tears for Claremont! This week, we discuss (at length!) the life and work of Chris Claremont. From the man that made the X-Men who they are today to… well, he’s– he’s doin’ stuff… this prolific writer of comics has certainly left an impact on all of us. But what happened? Where did he go? Is he relevant? Those questions and many many interruptions.

Plus: Merk creates a new card game, a mystery figure joins the League of Baldos, and we all avoid talking about the film Wild Hogs, even though we really, really want to talk about Wild Hogs.
