The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. Tech issues got the best of us (along with a list of other weirdness). We'll be back next week with more of our usual silly behavior. If you have a moment, though, check out our website and our weekly picks, and maybe grab a rerun episode to listen to. And if we don't say it enough, thank you for listening and hanging out with us ūüôā   Announcements: We found a way to do our monthly meetups - on Discord! Come hang out with us in the voice channel on the 4th Saturday of the month; details...

The Fellowship is pleased to present our latest chat with Madeleine Holly-Rosing, creator of the Boston Metaphysical Society comics series.

The Fellowship is pleased to present a new Casting Call, this time for a theoretical Daredevil TV series starting in 1978. With the Superman movie and the Hulk and Spidey TV shows going on, this was kind of a mini-golden-age moment for comics in media. So we're running with it. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of the 1976 DC/Marvel crossover event Superman vs The Amazing Spider-Man: The Battle of the Century. This was a big one at the time, with the Superman movie and the Spidey TV show going on. DC and Marvel don't always play nice, and this was one of those nice moments. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. We planned to take a week off in March (though an argument could be made about tech issues).

The Fellowship is pleased to present the final installment of our comedy month for 2021. This year we're focusing on spy parody movies, and this week we're covering the "official" James Bond spoof Casino Royale (1967). This is a film with a lot of moving parts, and our opinions reflect that. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present a combined installment of our comedy month for 2021. This year we're focusing on spy parody movies, and this week we're covering Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine (1965) and Modesty Blaise (1966). Both of these films share an obvious influence (see if you can spot it ūüôā). Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship regrets to announce that we do not have a new episode for you this week. We had to deal with some weather-related issues (you probably heard about it on the news). We'll be back next week with more of our usual silly behavior. If you have a moment, though, check out our website and our weekly picks, and maybe grab a rerun episode to listen to.

The Fellowship is pleased to present the second installment of our comedy month for 2021. This year we're focusing on spy parody movies, and this week we're covering the Allen & Rossi vehicle The Last of the Secret Agents? from 1966. Allen & Rossi were a successful comedy team for a long time, and it's cool to see how that translates to a movie. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our conversation with Mark Weiss, founder of ComicBooks For Kids. Mark has some wonderful stories for us about the creation of the charity, the amazing reception he's gotten from publishers (and Diamond), and the kids who are the reason for the whole thing. Among other things, Mark is a good storyteller and kept us spellbound nearly the whole time. Plus a little bit of silliness and our comics picks of the week.
