  • Episode 250 – X-Men Fools Gold

    hero_5This week, we take a look at the controversy surrounding the recent X-Men: Gold #1 comic.  Muslim artist Ardian Syaf stirred up a lot of anger after including some arguably anti-semitic “easter eggs” in his drawings.  To understand what is going on, it helps to know that the messages were in support of a movement against recently ousted Jakarta governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama.  He was charged with blasphemy for criticizing the Koran (although it would appear he didn’t actually do that but we’ll get into that during the podcast).  We talk about the whole mess with our guest, Marvel super fan Mark Sherman.  Mark also becomes the first guest to answer our new five questions!

    For more, here’s an article from Bleeding Cool with several relevant links.

    Also interesting is this piece by G. Willow Wilson, who is also a Muslim.

    And hey – here’s one of the panels in question.

  • Episode 197 – Daredevil Season 2

    1990This week we take a look at Season 2 of Daredevil on Netflix.  We take a look at their interpretation of The Punisher, Elektra, and The Hand with our resident Marvel comics expert, Mark Sherman.  As with episodes of this nature, we spoil the shit out of the show so if you haven’t watched it yet, you should wait on this episode until you’ve had a chance to enjoy the twists and turns of the season on your own time.  We’ll be here when you get back.

    And hey – we just launched a Patreon campaign.  We’d like to be able to improve our recording equipment, our web platform and maybe even take some road trips to places like the creation museum.  You can help!  For just $2 a month, you can get our episodes early!  If you’ve been enjoying our podcast, please consider supporting us.


  • Episode 149 – Daredevil

    daredevilThis week, we bring in Marvel expert Mark Sherman to talk about the Netflix Daredevil series.  We don’t know if you’ve seen it yet but we all really liked it and think you should give it a try.  If you haven’t seen it, please be aware this is one of those “spoil the shit out of everything” episodes.  You’ve been warned!

    Also, today is Tim’s 25th wedding anniversary.  We didn’t mention it on the episode or anything but it’s kind of important.  To him anyway.
