Episode 72 - We’re Going In Circles

72SM.jpg

Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.


Three books from January 29, 2015. Plus a Second Opinion, featuring questions answered by a different listener each week, with Cleon Soares.

Show Notes:

This week’s theme was going to be the very pithy “everything old is new again,” which was both a not-so-subtle call out to how lax we’ve been with our recording schedule, but also an acknowledgement that all three titles we’re discussing this week have been a long time coming. But after we read them, at least one of us (spoiler: Andrea) was left feeling really depressed. (Like, more so than usual.) Sure, we’ve been waiting for Danger Club for awhile. And High Crimes is always worth the wait. And even what is going on over there on the X-Men-slash-Avengers unity team has been building for quite some time. But did you notice how heavy they all were? Maybe it’s not that everything old is new again, maybe it’s that everything dies?! Let's discuss.


It's not about mountain climbing. It's about deciding whether you want to even live to try to do so.


Existential teenage heroes and a force greater than the gods that can destroy us all.

(Plus, since we're talking fatalistic philosophy, some more High Crimes action as a bonus.)


Starting over again. Again.

Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.


Two books from January 14, 2015. Plus a Second Opinion, featuring questions answered by a different listener each week, with James Kaplan.

Show Notes:

This week’s theme is EPIC SPACE WESTERNS. What is our fascination with the wild west, and why does it work so well to translate it to the final frontier?


Copperhead #5 18:17

Space Western, a la Firefly


Star Wars #1 31:33

Space Samurai, a la The Hidden Fortress

Episode 70 - Public Image

Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.

Up this week, Andrea talks about Image Expo. Aaron whines because he wasn't there. It'll knock your socks off.


The manga Andrea mentions is called Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer. The story and art are by Satoshi Mizukami.


We'll be back to our regular format of comics chatter, Second Opinions and The Couch next week.

Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.

It's our Second Annual Introspective Year In Review, with special guest (and honorary show mascot), Eisner-nominated writer Christopher Sebela. 

As an added bonus, and benefiting absolutely no one, we present our first episode of 2015 with quite possibly the worst audio quality of our entire podcasting careers. You're welcome!
