ReadComics Podcast #027

January 18th, 2009 by

Marty, Mike, Jason and Florence got downright philosophical tonight as they discussed the following topics: Smallville (Jason went on at length about the recent episode featuring the Legion of Superheroes, written by Geoff Johns), Smallville and Harry Potter “HoYay” and fanfic, the current Spiderman issue featuring Obama which none of us had read (and Jason’s idea for Oba-Man), Battlestar Galactica and The Walking Dead and which one is more “soap opera like”, Rasl, Kick-Ass (and the movie… not this, but this), Gaylaxicon, Prism Comics, I Hate Gallant Girl, Shirtless Superheroes (a website for hot male images in comics… we couldn’t remember the name of it), gay characters of Star Trek (including this fan-made episode written by David Gerrold, writer of the “Trouble With Tribbles” episode), Love and Capes, Invincible (and other stuff we dropped from our pull this week, including Gravel), Doctor Sleepless, and a rather long discussion about whether comic book creators should listen to their fans. We talked for quite a while tonight, but surprisingly, it never felt like there was a lull in the discussion.

    Whew! For a minute there, I thought you dropped Love and Capes from your pull list.

  2. Martin Says:

    hehe… oh no. Love and Capes is one of the few comics we really look forward to, and (I’ve had a chance to read it now, so I can say this) this month’s issue was AWESOME. 🙂

    Thanks! Good to hear.

    Wait until you see #10, too. It’s very different.
