The Fellowship is pleased to present another Casting Call episode, this time for a modern film version of DC's Creature Commandos. They were in the title Weird War Tales, and they were a group of "traditional" movie monsters fighting for the good guys in World War 2. This one presents us with some interesting ideas, being somewhere between superheroes, movie monsters, and traditional drama stories. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of two movies, Dick Tracy and Darkman, that released in 1990. Both were groundbreaking films in their own way, and in very different ways. We talk about the each of them, including some history on how they were made, a bit about when they were made, how well we think they were made, Danny Elfman, 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 Bugs Bunny on his 80th birthday. His first "official" appearance was in July 1940, though he had been evolving for a couple of years by then. We're all big Looney Tunes fans around here, let me tell ya. We talk about the wascally wabbit, some of his co-stars, a bit about his creators, a little bit of a tangent about modifying the classics, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

More Episodes

The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of an article predicting the death of comics (specifically Marvel comics). We address it from different angles, such as financial considerations and how our fandom informs our perspective. And as always, our picks of the week.

 

What we're up to this week:

The Third QI Book of General Ignorance - a book of questions debunked by the QI elves, and a lot of fun for a geek like me

Batman and Harley Quinn - recommended; it has some elements we haven't seen much in animated Batman

Thomas' Big Bag o' Nothing® - busy week, didn't feel like doing much
