The co-creators and co-writers behind Songs for the Dead – a new indie comic about a young female necromancer who goes on an adventure to rescue a boy from her village – stop by to relay what it was like making and publishing their first real comic book.
Linz, Tony, and Josh gathered this week to talk about all things current and nerdy. Well, mostly. Turns out Josh is about a year late on a theory that widely circulated the internet about year ago. Still made for an interesting discussion though.
After trying to figure out what version of reality they were currently in, things moved to Tony’s most favorite topic: Power Rangers. Seriously, we should probably think about changing the name of this podcast to Drunk on Power Rangers. What started out as a review about issue 11 of the Power Rangers comic from BOOM! Studios quickly turned in to a history lesson about the Power Rangers and then a full on geek out from Tony and Josh, while Linz just sat back and watched the weirdness. Of course, the new Power Rangers movie trailer came out, so that became part of the discussion as well.
This week your hosts remembered they were a comic book podcast and reviewed some books! Along with Power Rangers #11, Tony also reviews WWE #1. Not having watched wrestling when this storyline took place, he is interested in where this story is going and is appreciative of the “backstage look” this comic offers. Both the writing and the art are on point. Later in the podcast, Linz reviews Curse Words #1 written by Charles Soule and drawn by Ryan Browne. The is a fun book full of wizards and magic, but with a great twist that can only be brought to you by the duo working on this book.
Other topics brought up during this episode are the rumors behind the casting of Cable in the next Deadpool movie and the possibility of Hellboy 3. They also covered the newest Logan trailer.
Booze and a Book this week is Monsters Unleashed #1 paired with an Absolut Monster.
Derek and Tony hold down the fort right before the holiday weekend, and they get into a bit of the holiday spirit with a few of their books they reviewed this week. They also go all across the board with a little bit of everything this week from all aspects of the comic industry.
The guys had some fun talking about about some serious stuff about the animosity against certain comic creators, and others who have taken up the backlash to raise funds to stop online bullying. Tony spoke a bit about what is going on in the books of Marvel, and Derek explained why his life is shitty, literally.
