324: REBCAST! (The Reb Brown Podcast)

Resurrecting seemingly-dead franchises and series is all the rage these days, from Snyder finally getting his Cut, to returning Batmen, Spider-Men and Supermen, to fan campaigns to bring back old favourites as far as the eye can read! We have a chat about this trend and what it means for fandom and creativity, but then get a whole lot less critical as we pitch a bunch of other revivals we may actually see, considering how things are going! We’ve got an All-Punishers Squad! A House of Constantines! The return of REB BROWN! And more! More!!

But first, Kyle pits Merk and Bry against each other in a battle between two random characters! And SUCH NEWS: Image Comics staff unionizes! Dark Horse Comics is bought by a video game developer! Jeff Lemire gets exclusive with Image! Scott Pilgrim becomes an anime! And c’mon, guys, Morbius is never coming out.

218: Death by a Thousand Snyder Cuts

Release the Snyder Cut! I guess! There’s somehow still talk of this thing (possibly more talk, even), so this week, we’re coming up with our own Snyder Cuts. How do you fix a movie like Justice League, anyway? And how could you fix other movies in the same way?

Plus, we’re talking about comic book piracy. When indie books are being downloaded by the hundreds of thousands, and the creators are broke, is that cool? On the flipside, comic books are damned expensive, dawg. Like, real ‘spensive. We solve this problem*!

All that, and Kyle manages to contribute to the news for once.

213: The Schist Hits the Fan

Are you ready to get spooked out of your goddamned minds? This week we watch Man-Thing, the hottest Marvel movie of 2005 (look, the only competition it had was that Fantastic Four movie with Michael Chiklis). It’s free on Youtube! You can just watch it! It’s as if they know they aren’t going to be making the other $29 million of their $30 million budget back.

Also: who’s in charge of putting out bad Marvel stickers now, what are the highest-selling comics (and highest-selling places where you can buy comics), and who wants to play the Penguin now?
