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.

275: Hope v Dickery: Debate of Superman

Superman: beacon of hope, or beacon of NOPE? That’s the question we grapple with today! Does Superman inspire humanity to greatness, or is he just a power-rich jerk in a dumb cape? Do other heroes better represent the hopeful ideal? (And what is “hope”, anyway? Sounds made-up!) We go to some places with this one!

PLUS! All the news you can listen to: Black Widow, the Dwayne McDuffie awards, Power Rangers on Kickstarter, Miles Morales, Scott Pilgrim, and… [sigh]… Morbius. And we create new characters improv-style in a special Superman-themed Character Storm!

262: Draclactus OR GaDractus OR Galacula

Boo! Boooooooooo! Boooooo!

This week, we’re talking about monsters, and how they seem to end up in mainstream superhero books pretty dang often. Werewolf By Night, Cap Wolf, that time The Living Mummy was part of a super hero team…there’s a precedent!

But first, we cover the return of Jared Leto’s Joker, Spider-Man 3 rumours, and more in the News, and we try to debate who’s better, Dracula or Dracula, in the Warmup!

(Boo!)

253: Peril at Castle Snyder

We really meant for this episode to be all about Mike Mignola, we did! But then Bry and Kyle were told of a secret screening of the Snyder Cut that was happening out at a private country estate, and… no wait, that’s the Chooses the Doozes story/game that Merk puts his cohosts in this week! What mysteries will BryKy oncover? What traps has Merk laid in waiting for them? What is Gal Gadot’s speaking voice? All that and also some news, this week!

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.
