We talk about the history of the title, some different character stories, the issue's impact on the X-Men and comics in general, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of Skottie Young's awesome series I Hate Fairyland. Spoilers fly in this one, starting with how much we collectively love this book. We talk about Skottie's art, the birth of this story, the inherent weirdness of it, how we think it qualifies as a horror story, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our Casting Call for a 1965 X-Men movie. It can be tricky to make casting choices this far in the past, but it's still a lot of fun (for us) doing the research. We talk a whole lot about characters, a fair bit about actors you may not have heard of, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of summer movies. But since we can't be sure that we'll have movies this summer, we took it back to the summer movies of 1985. The 1980s was a decade of highs and lows, in movies or otherwise, and '85 had some major hits and some major misses. We talk a whole lot about the ones we liked, as much as we dare about the ones we didn't, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of Crisis on Infinite Earths from DC Comics. This is one of the first big crossover events in comics, and is still one of the most talked-about storylines ever (not to mention the recent crossover treatment by the CW network shows). We talk about the book itself, the complexity of the story, the body count (spoilers, I guess), how important it was (and still is), and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of villain-centric comic series. The Joker had his own title for a while in 1975, and we're wondering this week if it's a viable, sustainable concept. We talk about the Joker title, the hero-villain dynamic, which other villains have had their own titles, which ones we'd like to see title for, and a bunch of other stuff. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.
