Episode 74 - Under my Thumb

Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.


Two books from February 18, 2015. Plus a Second Opinion, featuring questions answered by a different listener each week, with Matt Roberts.

Show Notes:

This week’s theme is under the thumb of the man, or as we like to call it, just another week talking 'bout the patriarchy. Both books feature oppressive regimes targeting and eliminating undesirables that don’t fit into their precious worldview. Coincidentally, both leaders of those regimes are middle aged white men, drunk on the power of their own ignorance. Like Aaron.

Episode 73 - Rebel Girl

Comics Therapy. No Reviews. Just Analysis.


Three books from February 4, 2015. Plus a Second Opinion, featuring questions answered by a different listener each week, with Mike Garvey.

Show Notes:

This week’s theme is girls behaving badly. We’re looking at two female characters doing traditionally male jobs - hired killer and secret agent - and discussing the trials and tribulations of being a member of the softer sex in that hard, hard world. Along the way, we’ll touch on classic gender roles in the home and office, and our perceptions of those expectations today. And just for fun, Marvel’s Agent Carter will be making an appearance in both of these conversations, since it not only fits thematically but is also another stunning example of midcentury misogyny. Basically we’re talking about women who can kick your ass and look great doing it.


She really can have it all! The faithful husband, beautiful children, perfectly coifed hair and promising career. Let's hear it for domestic tranquility, everyone.


Velvet #9 33:37

So many layers of lies - and at the center, one of the most complex and compelling female characters being written today.
