MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Groovy Cool
Had he lived, Jack Kirby would have been 98. Al starts it off with a discussion that without The King’s influence, would comic books have taken a more boring direction? Don brings Dave Gibbons’ Watching The Watchmen book, and they finish with a quick Pullapalooza.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Circus Devils
Al is joined by Don with nothing to say, so it starts off with a book that was just picked up. That leads into the Ant-Man movie, then goes into the many guises of Hank Pym, and some of the black super-heroes of the seventies. Then they go into Pulapalooza again.
MUSICAL SPOTLIGHT: Icewater
The fantastic foursome return! Talking points include: Locke & Key, The Flash (TV), Gotham (TV), Agents of Shield (TV). Cartoon talk! Adventure Time, Ed Edd & Eddy, Looney Tunes and the documentary “I Know That Voice.” We discuss matching voices to animated lips and Don’s love for The Incredibles.
Dallas gushes over Supergods by Grant Morrison, and Don compares superhero comics to MC Hammer. We review Little Nemo by Eric Shanower & Gabriel Rodriguez, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Rose of Berlin by Alan Moore & Kevin O’Neill.
